In season one’s episode “Squeeze”, one of my favorite scenes is this exchange between Mulder and Tom Colton:

“So Mulder, what do you think? Does this look like the work of little green men?”
“Grey.”
“Excuse me.”
“Grey. You said green men. A Reticulan skin tone is actually grey. They’re notorious for their extraction of terrestrial human livers, due to iron depletion in the Reticulan galaxy.”
“You can’t be serious.”
“Do you have any idea what liver and onions go for on Reticula?”

I absolutely loved that Mulder was “yanking his chains” right from the start, sensing that Colton was probably going to be a prick about the case, and as we all know, he turned out to be exactly that. I had a blast writing “Tom” back in 2009, not only because I liked the challenge of writing from a secondary character’s point of view, but also because I enjoyed writing his observations about Mulder and Scully at that early stage in their relationship. And if I’m being perfectly honest, I had a blast getting the chance to *be* Tom and act like a jerk! <g>
