From 4x24: Mulder: Then you accept the possibility that belief in God is a lie? Scully: I don't think about it actually and I don't think that it can be proven. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:30, 28 December 2007 (UTC)


Trivia: Scully is a fan of the metal band Megadeth (I can't remember the episode, but should be in the first or in the second serie). Would anyone add it? (sorry for my english: I'm italian)

Scully is not necessarily a fan of Megadeath. That assumption is based upon a one-line (likely joking) comment from Mulder in "Die Hand Die Verletz" (episode 2x14). (talk) 01:44, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Long-winded, unobjective summaries[edit]

These long-winded, unobjective summaries are a joke. I'm going to try and edit them soon. Frey

(Added "presumably the child's father") If we cite the Mulder entry, we should keep it consistent, and it was never absolutely confirmed, despite "William" and "The Truth." User:Frey at last

We seriously need to get some people to fill this page up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by NathanMazoa (talkcontribs)

cleaned up[edit]

I tried to unify and clean up this article (a little bit), the edits made by some ip address were obviously made by someone unfamiliar with wikipedia. oh well. Jesse 03:22, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

I've been deleting unnecessary plot summaries and long quote passages of various sections. The article was/is very poorly organized with a lot of irrelevant (and sometimes erroneous) information.Marikology 23:20, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Great edits! Thanks. - Frey 03:41, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
I appreciate the symmetry with the Mulder page, however, the Parents section was too long-winded. I suggest the original author recover the text from the history and make a Margaret Scully page.Marikology 23:32, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Her quotes should be moved to wikiquote, like the mulder article. Cthulhu spawn 19:56, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Scully's Family[edit]

I have repeatedly deleted redundant or unnecessary information from this section, simply because Scully's family is very peripheral to the show. Most of the information I deleted was "fanon"- POV based on speculation from one line of dialogue, making it inappropriate for an encyclopedia article. For example, Charles Scully is only mentioned a handful of times- it's too much to assume he has children, or anything else about him, besides his name. Many people call close younger boys their nephews, even if it's not officially so. The nephew Scully referred to in "Home" could have been anybody!

Other details about Emily Sim and William are included elsewhere in the article and do not need to be re-stated. (William even has his own page). Marikology 18:51, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Also, besides the mention of her nephew in "Home", Scully herself refered to her uncle in "Humbug". This, too, should be left out of the article.cw1925 19:20, 31 May 2007 (UTC)


The entire subject is speculation. If my addition is removed the entire section should be removed.

I went ahead and took out this whole section and moved it to the X-Files Wiki.... A link to it is on the Scully page under External Links.

Restored mention of the multiple hints with a valid source. Not sure if it should be in the intro, but fits there better than any other current section, and I do not have the knowledge to do a proper expansion. —MJBurrage(TC) 21:03, 30 June 2008 (UTC)


Do we know who her biological father is? Yellowstone County Girl 05:25, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Emily was conceived as part of a government experiment as a result of the tests done on Scully during her first abduction (see: Ascension, One Breath); presumably, Emily Sim is an alien-human hybrid, meaning that her 'biological father' by definition, doesn't exist and is alien in origin. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:32, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

A source that can be used Truth Is Out There: The Official Guide to the X Files[edit]

There is a book called Truth Is Out There: The Official Guide to the X Files by Brian Lowry. If you need more X-Files information (especially about development of episodes), get the book and cite it. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:57, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Bah, c'mon.[edit]

Does she really fit into the "Woman Warriors"? Murdersaurusrex (talk) 03:08, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Mulder and Scully's current status[edit]

Why are people reverting the info about their current relationship status all the time to "ambiguous"? I just changed it back and I keep got a message saying my information was incorrect and not from a verifiable source when it is stated both in the movie and the official novelization that they are living together in the new movie.

I suspected vandalism, so I reverted it. Seeing that you bring it here, I reassess my position and will not revert again. __meco (talk) 10:54, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

I think it frankly was somewhat ambiguous. The two were clearly still in love and I'm guessing they had some level of contact in the six years since The Truth. But I think it's unlikely that they were living together regularly since Mulder was still a fugitive while Scully obviously was not. Maybe that changed after Mulder was exonerated but before... serpentnight 9:39, 7 September 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)


Does anyone know the source of Scully's address as being "107 E. Cordova St."? Gathering research for the X-Files Wiki, I've just finished watching the whole of The X-Files, looking for information about the homes of the series' main characters, but I can't find anywhere that the location of Scully's apartment, in more depth than "Georgetown", is given. The sentence here that claims she once lived at this specific street address has no citation of the source of the information and, though this claim is repeated on other websites, I'm unable to find any citation of the source. Shouldn't this information be removed, if it's discovered that it's not an officially established address for Scully? (talk) 11:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm able to find on-line references to Cordova St. being an actual street, where exteriors of buildings were filmed for the series. It's unlikely but not impossible that the same street name was obscurely given as the fictional address where Scully supposedly lives and/or lived, especially since I've recently been through the entire series, looking for such information. Consequently, I've removed the reality information from the fictional information. Although the sentence stated only a former address, Scully is still living in Georgetown at the end of the television series, so I've also tried to add this information.

A third X FIles Movie?[edit]

Hi. I'm a long time x-files fan and I was wondering if any of you out there think they might come out with another one. Please Respond. (talk) 16:09, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Episode Count[edit]

I think the info box lacks an episode count, like other characters have (e.g. Fox Mulder, Walter Skinner). --JPGoelz (talk) 19:20, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

"Scully Effect"[edit]

Someone should add a section on the "Scully Effect", where many young women and girls who watched in their formative years credit Scully for their career in science medicine FBI. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:43, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
