Excerpts from the script for “Fight the Future”:
SCULLY: I can’t…
Scully can’t finish speaking, her voice becoming a hoarse cough.
SCULLY: (barely a whisper) I can’t go any farther.
MULDER: Yes you can. You’re going to make it, Scully.
LOW ANGLE ON SCULLY. Her face is going red, straining for air. Her eyes rolling, seeking relief. As Mulder drops down beside her.
MULDER: Shit. (But she is unable to answer. Mulder hastening to unzip her/his jacket. To get to her neck and find a pulse.) Scully—
Mulder cannot find a pulse. Scully straining harder now as Mulder reaches his fingers into her mouth, clearing her passageway. Moving on top of her now, and pumping forcefully on her chest — trying to get air into her. One - two - three. And putting his mouth down to hers (FINALLY!), breathing his life into her. Pulling away from her to see that he is unsuccessful at this — that Scully is continuing to strain. Pumping her chest again —
MULDER: You’re not dying on me now – godammit godammit godammit-
— Scully’s body suddenly comes back to life beneath him. Labored breaths which turn into a coughing spasm. Mulder breaths relievedly for a moment, watching Scully coughing, coming back to life. Her eyes trying to focus on him, finding him. Seeing his labored relief. The panic melting away.
SCULLY: (weakly, pained whisper) Mulder…
She wants to tell him something. He leans down next to her.
SCULLY: (continued weak) Had you big time.
Mulder has but a moment to savor this weary victory though when he REACTS to something, that causes him to WHIP HIS HEAD AROUND.
