The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Skinner rescue Mulder (David Duchovny) at the "clinic" where some Russians are performing a head transplant on one of their colleagues using the body of the second woman who was kidnapped.

Mulder tells Scully to not give up (what Father Joe told her earlier in the film) and they stay together deciding to not just walk away from darkness (the unexplainable) but to fight it. Scully decides to operate on her patient with the rare disease...
