We're ready for a Gillian Anderson-Kate McKinnon sci-fi comedy masterpiece. 

On Monday afternoon, while everyone was still sipping tea and watching the Kimye-Taylor Swift saga unfold online, Gillian Anderson blessed the internet with a wonderful throwback photo of one Kate McKinnon

But what would make “The X-Files” star share such a photo, you ask? Well, in the pic, a young McKinnon is dressed up like Agent Dana Scully, Anderson’s beloved character on the sci-fi series. McKinnon’s even got the badge, the red wig and even an oversized jacket. 

“Kate McKinnon, we have something in common & it’s not slimy green things. ,” Anderson wrote in her tweet.

Naturally, the internet loved it. (How could anyone not?) While McKinnon hasn’t responded ― she doesn’t have a Twitter account ― we know her love for Anderson (and Scully) is very real. 

In an interview with Julie Goldman, McKinnon revealed Anderson basically spurred her sexual awakening and helped her come to terms with her sexuality. 

“I figured it out by watching ‘The X-Files’ and noticing my physiological reaction to it,” she said. “I thought it was a product of David Duchovny’s face, but it was Gillian Anderson who still is the queen of my heart. So I knew then.”

Meanwhile, Anderson had expressed her excitement about the “Ghostbusters” reboot during a 2014 Reddit AMA. 

“OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online,” Anderson wrote. “Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I’m free!!!!! I’m free I’m free and I’m funny, goddamnit!”

We’d watch McKinnon and Anderson kick butt in a film together any day. Paul Feig, take note.
