Ed DeLine and his daughter were tracking the thieves who robbed the Montecito's safe deposit boxes through the 'Las Vegas' sewer when Delinda observed that it was just like being Mulder and Scully.

When her father asked "Who?", she shrugged it off as not being important.

Ed DeLine is a powerful man with many influential contacts in the government, and his daughter knows this. Delinda didn't want to embarrass him that she knew of a couple of FBI agents who had some notoriety; agents whom Big Ed should have known about. Like John F. Byers of 'The Lone Gunmen' said about Mulder in an episode of 'The X-Files': "Mulder's too high profile. He's virtually a household name to the black ops who kidnapped Susanne in Baltimore."

So Delinda dropped the subject, rather than embarrass Daddy.

And how did Delinda know about Mulder and Scully? It could be that she met and befriended Dana Scully when she was in Las Vegas. We don't see everything that happens in an episode of any show. There are a lot of blanks to be filled in.

So it's entirely possible that Delinda met Dana while the agent was helping out Langly, Byers, and Frohike on a case in Vegas. (They tricked her into coming, even though it was likely she would be kicking their asses when she found out the ruse.) And Dana may have opened up to Delinda about her relationship with Mulder......

(That episode of 'The X-Files' - "Three Of A Kind" - was at some casino which was hosting the annual Def-Con, a convention for defense contractors. It's always pozz'ble, jes' poss'ble, that in 1999 it was held at the Montecito.)

And all of this in an episode that marked yet another crossover with 'Crossing Jordan', even with the Boston forensics mystery series still not returned from the summer hiatus.

And since Jordan is still on the run, when it does return it will have to be considered as being set in the past. This crossover can't officially take place until that storyline is wrapped up.

Unless of course, this 'Las Vegas' episode took place in between episodes of last season's 'Crossing Jordan', before she was accused of killing an old boyfriend.....


"Hello, Mulder? Can you hear me? I'm at the hotel. Where are you?
What do you mean, 'what hotel', Las Vegas. I'm in Las Vegas, aren't you?
You called me. What do you mean you didn't call me?
Oh man, I am going to kick their asses
