Pendrell was strongly attracted to Agent Scully. Though his attraction to Scully went apparently unrequited, Sharon Graffia once referred to Pendrell as being "someone close" to Scully.
In 1995, Pendrell analyzed the chip that was in Scully's neck and was surprised to find it was very advanced. (TXF: "Nisei") He performed some experiments and made some hypotheses. He thought the chip was sensing and recording neural brain patterns. He also found what he thought was the manufacturer, a Japanese company for which no information could be found, other than a package delivery to Perkey, West Virginia. (TXF: "731")
Pendrell looked into the five records of Social Security Administration employees who all looked like Jeremiah Smith. He found they had seemingly encrypted personal records. He showed Scully what he found and later she came back and explained that the records were smallpox vaccination records of Americans. Pendrell let Scully perform a procedure on himself to confirm some of her theory, but they still had a hard time convincing Skinner and other agents. (TXF: "Herrenvolk")
In 1997, Pendrell ran into Scully at a bar frequented by FBI agents. Scully was accompanied by Sergeant Louis Frisch, a key witness to the investigation of the downing of Flight 549, who was targeted by a Syndicate agent. As the assassin turned his gun on Sergeant Frisch, Pendrell got in the line of fire, returning to Scully's table with drinks to celebrate her birthday. He was shot in the chest. (TXF: "Tempus Fugit") He died shortly after in a Washington hospital. Scully sadly realized she had never known Pendrell's first name after his death. (TXF: "Max")
