Mulder is reading a "Hanky Panky" magazine, when Scully comes in, saying:
— Working hard, Mulder?
— This woman [whose picture's in the magazine] claims to have been taken aboard a spaceship and held in an anti-gravity chamber without food and water for three days.
— [sceptically/sarcastically] Anti-gravity's right.
The X-Files, TV series

Explain please the phrase.
Thanks.

    Mulder is reading a men's magazine, holding it vertically as one would if viewing the centerfold photo of a nude female model.

    Scully is sarcastically commenting on the model's physical attributes as defying gravity (anti-gravity). "Anti-gravity's right!" = Anti-gravity is correct (accurate)!
