One Breath


Episode Info

After spending several weeks searching for his missing partner, Scully, Mulder tracks her down at a Washington, D.C., hospital. He learns that she is comatose and on life support -- but when he tries to find out why, he is told to mind his own business and go home. Mulder tries to solve the mystery and save his partner's life with the help of Scully's sister, Melissa (Melinda McGraw), and a member of The Lone Gunman. Scripted by Glen Morgan and James Wong to accommodate Gillian Anderson's maternity leave from The X-Files, "One Breath" first aired November 11, 1994.
