The Magic Circle describes X-Files Mulder's and Scully's increasing inability to trust those around them, forcing them to rely exclusively on each other for trust and friendship.

The phrase was first coined by Pat Nussman and in use by at least 1994. [1]

"The Magic Circle" a frequent theme in Starsky and Hutch. In that fandom, the phrase is "Me and Thee," a line from the pilot episode, and an answer to "Who do we trust?" Another example is Mulder's and Scully's increasing inability to trust those around them, forcing them to rely exclusively on each other.
