Dana Scully is an FBI Special Agent and is partnered with fellow Special Agent Fox Mulder.

Mulder and Scully work out of a cramped basement office at FBI headquarters, investigating unsolved cases labeled "X-Files." In contrast to Fox Mulder's credulous "believer" character, Scully is the skeptic, choosing to base her beliefs on what science can prove. However, occasionally Scully is exposed to similar 'unbelievable' events which Mulder does not believe in, and the tables are turned.

When Homer believed that he saw an alien, Mulder and Scully came to Springfield to investigate. They interviewed Homer and put him through a series of medical tests. When Mulder questioned why Scully had Homer running on a treadmill in his underwear, Scully replies that she "just thought he could stand to lose a little weight." They eventually determined that Homer was crazy.

Scully described the Springfield investigation as their worst mission ever, but later reappeared wearing a "Homer is a Dope" T-shirt.
