Happy birthday to our favorite alien slaying heroine! Gillian Anderson's ass-kicking X-Files character Dana Scully was born on this day in 1964, according to X-Files Wiki. The agent/doctor is known for her confidence, intelligence and dedication to her craft(s)—qualities we can totally admire. We decided to celebrate this glorious day by gathering our favorite Scully moments in GIF form. In the event you need more reasons to love her, here are some memorable X-Files moments that celebrate Scully's undying badassery.
She's totally indestructible. Think about it. How much crazy shit has she been through!? Medical school, an abduction, all those '90s pantsuits!?
She doesn't take shiz from anyone. That eye-roll is your first clue.
NO. SHIZ. FROM. ANYONE.
She knows she can get whatever she wants —whenever she wants.
She's a doctor, agent, alien fighter, mother, friend and so much more. Meanwhile, we just learned how to make a hot dog.
She's so iconic she was even on The Simpsons.
DAMN RIGHT BOO.
