fuck yeah david and gillian : documenting the awkward since 2010
hey again - original anon aka the post that started it all. i've asked my mother to ask her friend (who she doesnt know THAT well, which makes this whole call back questioning hilariously awkward, but hey, for science) for more details re: the sighting. news has come back: it was at 730AM, just as she was leaving for work that day. i dont know if i believe it, but i'm out of the country and cant administer the lineup test. o, great documenter of awkward, how do i determine the validity of this?Anonymous
my one question: were they going up or down?
Anon: There are actually two sightings of David (with pap pix dated, source, Philiater) at LAX. He left for NYC (assumingly) on the 10th mothers day weekend being my guess as to why. And then arrived BACK at LAX on the 13th, Monday. Looked to be late afternoonish. So, He was there friday-monday. To be perfectly factual and accurate. SCIENTIFIC research okay?
Anon: GA arrived in NY on Sunday night. She was at a Con during the day in Canada. DD left NY on Monday morning - He left LA on Friday and he was back on Monday. There are pictures to prove it just search - So unless they saw each other briefly at 3am in the morning HA it didn’t happen. Your mommas friend got confused I bet she doesn’t even know how Scully looks like nowdays
Got a bunch of messages about this. Resolved: Sunday night to Monday (early) morning would have been the only time they were both in NYC, make of it what you will.
Thanks to all correspondents for compiling the data. I’ve been indisposed and unable to perform my own investigations.
I was thinking...if I were to bear witness to DD & GA conversing or otherwise, incognito, I don't believe I'd rat them out. I mean it must be so strange for them to meet up, for coffee, as friends without the whole world gawking and geeking out! So, am I wrong to feel this way? It's like once the loch ness monster is officially spotted, then gone is the mystery, novelty & tee shirtsAnonymous
In such a situation I would no doubt experience profound conflict between my humane ethical principles and my professional obligations.
But what did you think of the end of the world comment from that Q&A? You haven't commented yet! :)Anonymous
Sorry! I never commented because, when I listened to it, it just felt like a silly joke (I mean, I don’t know what else I would’ve thought) and, although it’s kinda cute, didn’t seem THAT necessary to hash out. I’ll get together a regular picture/quote deal pretty soon, and archive it as an incident of humor with sexual themes aka stuck on sex.
It WOULD be pretty interesting if, as someone suggested, David got prickly about it. But he’d probably understand it as an off the cuff joke in context.
Actually DD left LAX on Friday, May 10, 2013. Not Monday, May 13, 2013. You can verify that by going to Duchovny Centeral and on the front page, scroll to May 11, where the story showing he left LAX on May 10. Not saying that DD and GA hooked up, but DD didn't leave LAX on Monday, he left the previous Friday.Anonymous
As much as it would be total awesomesauce if the elevator siting were true, it's kind of implausible. For one, there are pap pics of David leaving LAX on the 13th (Monday) in daylight and Gillian was doing upfronts that day. I mean, unless they had really quick coffee shop style table sex at like 4 or 5 am while not a single person was around. Stranger things have happened!Anonymous
Ahh, thanks for the reminder. I thought those LAX pictures came from Tuesday, and forgot that Gillian was doing upfronts. Probably a mistaken identity thing, then.
I wasn’t really excited by the idea of them doing furtive sexy times. I was excited by the idea that David would take Gillian over to visit his place, almost like they were friends in real life??
Maybe she should hire you!Anonymous
I pass this on without comment. Except to say. That I didn’t say it. Anon said it.
I have decided to do a year’s worth of Comic-Cons in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the X-Files. And it’s the first time that I’m spending this type of one-on-one time with fans. And it’s been so wonderful to be able to also thank the fans for having been fans for such a long time, and to meet one-on-one some of the people who kept us on the air for so long. And one of the things that I’m finding the coolest ever is people who bring their kids - teenagers - who have been introduced to the show, now that they’re old enough to be introduced to my own favorite series. And they get to watch it again but with their 12 year olds, and re-experience it, so that we’re getting a whole new generational fanbase. And I just can’t tell you how excited that makes me.
And I can’t wait to share it with my boys- because it just occurred to me that there will be a time when they come to me and say “Hey Mom, people keep telling us about this show that you were on, called the X-something - can we watch that too?” That will be a day - however it is that it will be beamed into our future household - we’ll sit down on our levitating couch, and I will screen the pilot episode in front of Oscar and Felix.

“I will definitely write a fiction before I’m 70, and then at some point in my 70s I will write an autobiography, but I have a tiny problem (which is a massive problem as far as autobiographies are concerned) - my memory. I will need people who were around at the time to tell me how it really happened.”
GA, Reddit AMA, May 16, 2013
She does not need witnesses.
She needs an archivist.
Will we ever see you on Californication?
GA: Talk to David.
Do you still have a relationship with any of the cast members from X-Files?
GA: I do. I just saw Mitch recently at a Comic-Con in Calgary, always lovely to see him. I have an email relationship with David, we don’t get to see each other very much but we communicate. Chris Carter remains a good friend.
If William came back as a character, what actor should play him?
GA: That IS a good question. You know who I think would be good, but he might be too old, the kid who was in THE IMPOSSIBLE, Tom Holland - he’s 17, too old. Darn. I need to think about it.
I come with news of an alleged sighting. It is all very he said-she said, so feel free to discount it in your research. My mother just called me frantically after her friend (who recently moved into the same building as DD - an issue I will emotionally grapple with at another time) saw "Mulder and Scully in the elevator" on Monday. I don't know how to feel right now. I kind of want to adopt the "pictures or it didn't happen" policy, but I also am kind of hoping its true? Please advise.Anonymous
IS YOUR MOTHER TRUSTWORTHY
IS YOUR MOTHER’S FRIEND TRUSTWORTHY
Perhaps you should administer a lineup test. Provide your mother’s friend with pictures of DD and GA mixed into some pictures of Dylan McDermott and Julianne Moore etc. and ask her which people she saw.
Hey there! David was seen at LAX yesterday coming from NY, so the coffee shop thingy will have to wait.... odd how she is in NY and suddenly he is not. Really bad timing when you have a overseas friend visiting. Haha life is cruel :D feuerkindAnonymous
GA is in NYC today (till Wed) doing press stuff. Do you think she and Mr. Duchovny will do lunch? Maybe coffee at a quaint Upper East Side coffee shop?Anonymous
SIRENS SIRENS RED ALERT, EVERYBODY GET THEIR TWITTER STALK ON, THERE MIGHT BE A SIGHTING
“… the last time Vince Gilligan saw David Duchovny — who also wrote and directed a handful of episodes in addition to starring as FBI agent Fox Mulder — was at the wrap party…”
See Post #vince gilligan #david duchovny #he treats all his family like that #this is also further confirmation that david was at the wrap party #post series #i guess we should feel lucky he sees gillian as often as he does
I need help reacting to something: @GillianA was asked if she and David were at a coffee shop not as Mulder and Scully and the aliens showed up. What would they do?Anonymous

@GillianA answered: "The world is about to end, why don't we have sex?" Fan said what if he said no? "He better fucking say yes!"
No less than nine messages about this. Was away from the computer all day and will be for most of tomorrow, but never fear, I haven’t forgotten my professional commitments here.
