It's a good day to be alive, especially if you're an X-Files fan. 

Fox debuted more new X-Files revivalfootage during its broadcast of the series finale of Wayward Pines, and this time it's seventeen seconds, as opposed to fifteen.

It's almos the exact same footage as last time (minus the poster being stepped on), except for one very important addition: Words!

Yep, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) actually talk in this one, and while it's only two lines, it's two lines that make us feel at home again. 

Watch the footage above and swoon along with us! 

"Are you ready for this, Scully?" Mulder says.

"I don't know if there's a choice," answers Scully. 

Ready for what? A choice about what?! We just want to know! 

Every bit of news that comes out about Fox's six-episode revival just makes us all the more excited for it to finally get here. 

Not only will the Lone Gunmen be back, but Anderson and Duchovny will also be joined by Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell, Joel McHale, Kumail Nanjiani, Rhys Darby, and Annet Mahendru. Mitch Pileggi will also return as Walter Skinner and William B. Davis will somehow be back as The Smoking Man.

The X-Files returns with a two-night premiere starting Sunday, Jan. 24 at 10 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. PT and continuing Monday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. in its normal timeslot.
