Dr. Clark Edison Quotes

08x06 - The Patriot in Purgatory Season 8 / Episode 6: - The Patriot in Purgatory

Colin Fisher: The soft callus hasn't consolidated yet. I'd put this break 10 days before he died. [Squinterns turn expectantly to Vaziri]
Arastoo Vaziri: ...Dr. Saroyan and Dr. Hodgins fixed time of death on September 21.
Colin Fisher: That means this injury occured September 11, 2001.
Arastoo Vaziri: Yeah.
Dr. Clark Edison: My God.
Wendell Bray: 9/11.
Finn Abernathy: Given the presence of jet fuel and his injuries, this man could've been at the Pentagon when the plane hit.
Dr. Clark Edison: Yeah. But every victim in that attack has been accounted for and identified.
Arastoo Vaziri: Maybe not. Maybe just the victims that had a home.
08x06 - The Patriot in Purgatory Season 8 / Episode 6: - The Patriot in Purgatory

Colin Fisher: 9/11 was a trauma to us all - not like this guy or the people who died that day. But it still changed us, right? A-and we act like it doesn't matter. Clearly Wendell is freaking out. And you [to Arastoo] You went nuts earlier. The first rule at the looney bin is to get it all out in the open. So that's what we're going to do, all right? I'll go... I was in High School. It was my Senior Year. I was [chuckls] breaking into my history teacher's desk to steal a test I hadn't studied for, and he walked in. He was crying. He couldn't care less what I was doing. That's when I found out. So I... I talked to him. I had stolen test in my hand, and we both sat... and we cried... Next?... Oh, come on!
Dr. Clark Edison: ...I was working. It was uh, before school - coffee shop. Everyone was just staring at the TV. No one said a word. The cook came out to watch with the rest of us. I still remember the smell of food burning on that grill.
Finn Abernathy: I was 9. I got in the way of my stepfather hitting my mama. He stuck me with some scissors. My mama wanted to take me to the hosital. But my hurt didn't seem like nothin' when we heard what happened.
Arastoo Vaziri: I was at morning prayers... I didn't believe that day. I didn't believe in anything.
Colin Fisher: ...Wendell?
Wendell Bray: ...I was uh, with my aunt... from that morning for the next few days... My uncle was a firefighter at New York... He never came home.
08x06 - The Patriot in Purgatory Season 8 / Episode 6: - The Patriot in Purgatory

Arastoo Vaziri: This rib fracture, Fisher, the remodeling seems to indicate it was fractured more than four days before he died, doesn't it?

Dr. Clark Edison: [to Arastoo] Wait... Are you thinking what I think you're thinking?
08x06 - The Patriot in Purgatory Season 8 / Episode 6: - The Patriot in Purgatory

Finn Abernathy: Now the bones are clean and we have no trace evidence to examine.
Colin Fisher: Oh God! Yes, we do.
Dr. Clark Edison: We do? 'Cause I don't think we do.
Colin Fisher: Not if we focus on the bones. We're fools.
Arastoo Vaziri: Excuse me?
Colin Fisher: We've been focusing on the bones. That's the problem.
Finn Abernathy: But we're Forensic Anthropologists. That's why Dr. Brennan planted us here.
Colin Fisher: No, she planted us here to get answers.

Dr. Clark Edison: Of course.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's very uncomfortable. My bra size has increased by 2 cups.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's quite obvious. You should be more observant, Dr. Edison.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, I see now. You're much larger now. [Clears his throat]
07x04 - The Male in the Mail Season 7 / Episode 4: - The Male in the Mail

Dr. Clark Edison: Okay, this is ridiculous, Dr. Hodgins. Do you think our killer used a thousand year old battle axe?

Dr. Clark Edison: All right. [Clark uses the battle axe]
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Nope.

Angela Montenegro: No. No. No. No. You were a couple. You just weren't having sex. Were you jealous?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Of course not. I'm happy for Booth. Why would I be jealous?
Dr. Clark Edison: Because it's obvious you and Agent Booth were attracted to each other. I mean a blind man could see that.

05x20 - The Witch in the Wardrobe Season 5 / Episode 20: - The Witch in the Wardrobe

Dr. Jack Hodgins: It's a little outside my expertise, but they look like bat bones to me. You missed that Clark?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, Clark's error is completely understandable. Given the condition of the remains, and the bizzare nature of their circumstances.
Dr. Clark Edison: Thank you Dr. Brennan.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Yeah, but I made the call on a piece-of-crap cathode ray tube while in jail.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, that's right. You're in jail.

Dr. Clark Edison: [after being told that he will have to go out of the lab again to search for missing bones, using a stereotypical 'slave' accent] Well, is it all right if I get a drink of water, boss? You know, uh, it's awful hot out there, and them tools is mighty heavy.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [Completely missing the reference] Of course you can get water. Why are you talking like that?

Dr. Clark Edison: And you both work for the Justice Department?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yes.
Dr. Clark Edison: Ironic.

Dr. Jack Hodgins: You said you didn't want to work with us anymore.
Dr. Clark Edison: No. I said my preferred work style tends towards the professional. See my tie? That's an indicator.
Angela Montenegro: Mmhmm. So why'd you come back then?
Dr. Clark Edison: Because this is the finest forensic facility in the world.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You want to fight MIGs you fly MIG alley, right?

Angela Montenegro: [Angela enters] Didn't have sex with who?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Jared Booth.
Angela Montenegro: Good.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Good? Why good?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Because... because...
Angela Montenegro: Because he's Booth's little brother. And it would just be a creepy way to have sex with a Booth without having sex with the *real* Booth.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Kudos Angela. I would not have had the guts to say that out loud.

Dr. Jack Hodgins: Did Angela's ex get off okay?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: [Flinches] Whoa! Sorry?

Dr. Camille Saroyan: Anytime. [Takes a breath of relief] Either Maine or Jamaica, you really can't go wrong. [Awkward pause] I should... Bye. [Hurries away]
