Doggett/Scully is the romantic pairing between the characters John Doggett and Dana Scully on The X-Files. The pairing is commonly denoted as DSR - Doggett/Scully Relationship - and fan who 'ships it often refer to themselves as dippers instead of shippers.

The very idea of Agent Doggett joining forces with Agent Scully on the X Files unit was something exciting because it was very much like when Scully joined Mulder. One the sceptic and one the believer. The difference was Scully now paired with the sceptic Agent Doggett was once the sceptic herself. When they work together they create an understanding. Doggett has to understand and respect how she now believes in paranormal phenomena and Scully has to appreciate Doggett’s unwillingness to believe, as she could not all those years ago.[1]
