[b]Numerous red herrings were trotted out, including the idea of alien tampering. But in the end, the naming of the baby after Mulder’s father and their tender kiss provided confirmation that the baby was Mulder’s and the product of a sexual relationship between he and Scully that had only been hinted at in the past.
"The final scene was meant to say that Mulder and Scully had consummated their relationship and this child was a result of that," Spotnitz said.

That final scene would have been significantly different had Duchovny and director Kim Manners not intervened after both were unsatisfied with series creator Chris Carter’s original ending which featured a mundane kiss on the forehead.

"That relationship was so intimate for so many years," Anderson said. "The friendship and the camaraderie and the love that these people shared for each other goes beyond any paper they'll sign or any sex scene. It's so much deeper than all of that. They should just, you know, leave it alone."
"Like in life you have chemistry with people. You also have that as an actor, and you don't have any control over it as in life," Duchovny said. "We were lucky."
Thexfilesz wrote:OOOOOHHHH I have the ultimate question. How would Mulder propose? I have a feeling he wouldn't get down on one knee. Actually, I don't see him even getting a ring. He'd probably just ask her in the middle of a conversation like how he did when he told Scully he wanted to run away with her in IWTB. But anyways, if he DID, what would happen? Lol Scully would totally say no. . .

I believe in way back Inside the X-Files back around season 4, CC, David and Gillian said that "touch of a hand has always been a the same as making love in another television series"
"It sounds cache to say they are best friends beacause they are best friends beyond what lovers could ever be. Mulder loves Scully, Scully loves Mulder."

I always think that it doesn't matter about marriage because they have already been with each other, been there already in sickness and health, richer and for poor, almost til death do them both...they already made that commitment to each other and marriage is just not who they really are. If that makes any sense?
Mulder and Scully of The X-Files are a prime example of this trope. Part of it could be that they were originally never intended to be a romantic couple, but while they have intense feelings for one another, are rarely physically demonstrative. The extent of physical contact we see is usually holding hands, and occasionally a hug. In nine seasons, there are only four onscreen kisses between them, and one of them was likely all in Mulder's head. On the other hand, Gillian Anderson remarked that "Mulder and Scully holding hands is as intense and romantic as a kiss on another show," and their touches, while not demonstrative, were certainly very intense.

They just aren't Mr. and Mrs.. They're committed, no matter how hard it gets. In fact, what they have is better than marriage. It's not on paper, it's in stone. They can never divorce! A separation for those two would be glorious and angsty because they can't be apart.

Mulder asks Scully to marry him at 2:42 and it sounds perfect.
