or a relationship with his father (whom he calls Walter as a signal to the audience) parallels Scully's invincible skepticism in the face of repeated personal experience.
Of course, most skeptics I've run into say that "personal experience", unless it can be repeated under controlled conditions, isn't worth a damn. So Scully even stuck to that until her skepticism finally started cracking. She figured out the difference between being a skeptic and just being stubborn/dogmatic.
