Thanks, Tre, for the on-the-fly reading.

"Do you remember what you said that night?" Scully asked. "The night Bambino got his start."

They were lying in bed, Mulder on his back, Scully in some miserable compromise of a position on her side, her huge belly between them.

He turned toward her.

"Let's see," he said. "Something about choices, and how different our lives would be if we didn't take the right turns?"

"Mm," she sighed. "The day you came back from England. But that wasn't the night we made the bambino."

"Oh," Mulder said. "Then I must have said something about Chevy Chase or Shiner Bock."

"Caddyshack," Scully said. "That wasn't the time either."

Mulder shrugged. "Okay, I guess you did the math. Exactly when did we dive into the gene pool?"

"That night we watched Star Wars," she said.

He looked perplexed. "Star Wars? We did? On video?"

"Mulder, you don't remember," she said in surprise. "You came over with the tape and a bottle of wine."

"Okay," Mulder said, propping his head up on his hand.

"You really don't remember?" Scully was baffled. "I asked you how much you paid for the Bordeaux."

"Yeah?" Mulder asked.

"I asked you why you were wearing that goofy hat," she said.

"The Stonehenge hat," Scully said.

"No, silly. An orange hat. It said 'superstar.' And you said not to worry about how much the wine cost. You said we should live a little. And then you showed me what a superstar you really are."

the end.
