"Watcha Thinkin Bout, Scully?"

Marz sent me the screencap of FBI agent Scully (Gillian Anderson) in a top hat---a favorite of X-philes (fans of the TV show, The X-Files 1993-2002--new mini-series coming in 2016).

Naturally I thought of Marlene Dietrich (in Morocco, 1930).

Scully's reply is a lame half-pun on the name of her partner, Mulder (David Duchovny), with whom she may or may not be in love/lovers.
My other "whatcha thinking bout" memes; 
 history of the meme is here.

Until the Bleak House, I had no idea how lovely Gillian Anderson is. That costume did her no justice.

Yes, but I like that she wasn't on display as a sex object but was dignified as a working FBI agent. And you can still tell how attractive she is... especially in a top hat! :)

Oh, agreed, glad they didn't play that up. Still, they seem to have gone to the opposite side. Or maybe when she was younger, the first few seasons when I watched the show, she hadn't quite grown into her face yet.

Oh, yes, I agree her face changed as she grew up:
she was only twenty-four when she started; a mere babe!

Does any woman look hotter than Dietrich in a tux? I think not.

BINK: I'm with you.
