Can Mulder or Scully ever be replaced?
"Yeah, everybody can be replaced. It’s a double equation and it’s contradictory, and here’s how it goes: The X-Files would not have been a success without me, but I am replaceable at this point. It wouldn’t have gotten to where it is if I hadn’t been in it in the beginning, but now that it is where it is, I’m dispensable. I mean, you get fans who say, "Oh no, it wouldn’t be the same without you." But in the end, you’re just an actor playing a role."
David Duchovny, Playboy, 1998
Sure, Fine, Whatever…oh David, we all saw how THAT turned out… *whistles* some things are replaceable, for everything else there’s DD and GA, or Mulder and Scully. No, M&S can not be replaced. Ever. Period. Done. The End.
