"All right, what you may find is as you concentrate on hitting that little ball, the rest of the world just fades away—all your everyday, nagging concerns: the ticking of your biological clock, how you probably couldn’t afford that nice new suede coat on a G-woman’s salary, how you threw away a promising career in medicine to hunt aliens with a crackpot, albeit brilliant partner.”
That’s actually what Scully did, though. She dropped everything to work with Mulder, support him, and stand up for him, and the Bureau tore her down because of it. She’s had her reputation tarnished, she’s been sick, she’s been abducted, and she’s in danger all the time, but right now that doesn’t even matter except to make the night a little quieter and the stars a little brighter. This baseball diamond date night is so much more romantic because they’ve been too busy hunting aliens to actually date, and they’re so much more intimate with each other because of what they’ve been through. Mulder’s nose is in her hair, Scully’s in the middle, and they wouldn’t change a day.
