What were you doing 24 years ago Sunday? Maybe you’d just discovered a new sci-fi show called “The X-Files” and were about to fall under its spell.

“The X-Files” premiered nearly a quarter of a century ago, on Sept. 10, 1993. On Sunday, star Gillian Anderson, who played FBI agent Dr. Dana Scully, paid tribute to the anniversary with a tweet thanking co-star David “Fox Mulder” Duchovny.

Obviously there’s still some kind of mental mind-meld between the two, because in less than an hour, Duchovny responded.

What’s a little mud and rain between partners. 👽

Fans, to absolutely no one’s surprise, loved the exchange. They still want to believe in the supernaturally inclined supercouple.
