Dr. Clark Edison: The ribs appear to have received multiple fractures, uh, from the impact of the bicycle

James Aubrey: Not my high school
11x07 - The Promise in the Palace Season 11 / Episode 7: - The Promise in the Palace

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You want to be a student forever, Mr. Bray?
Wendell Bray: Eh, no. Of course not
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Then take a look for yourself. See what others wouldn't. I'm not gonna always be here to bail you out. The same goes for you, Dr. Edison

10x16 - The Big Beef at the Royal Diner Season 10 / Episode 16: - The Big Beef at the Royal Diner

Dr. Clark Edison: Dr. Brennan, I'm confused about these notes. I wasn't aware that we found injuries to the frontal, nasal, vormer or nasal conchea?
Temperance Brennan: Eh, oh, no, those aren't for this case! Those are lyrics to a song I'm writing for Christine about the human skeletal system
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, that's very nice! Well, if I was to write a song about all the fractures I found on these ribs, it might take an entire opera

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: The conspiracy is not an sentient life form, Dr. Hodgins
Dr. Jack Hodgins: I disagree. It's grown the same way any living organism grows

10x01 - The Conspiracy in the Corpse Season 10 / Episode 1: - The Conspiracy in the Corpse

Dr. Clark Edison: [Raising his hand] Excuse me. No one here has told me who this is or why he is so important
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Those details are not your concern, Dr. Edison. You're here to assist and to analyze the bones
Dr. Clark Edison: I'm the head of my department. I'm here as a favor! If you don't trust me... [starts walking away]
Dr. Camille Saroyan: This is absurd, Dr. Brennan. Howard Cooper, dead 16 years

09x22 - The Nail In The Coffin Season 9 / Episode 22: - The Nail In The Coffin

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: And the nails?

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?
Colin Fisher: Definitely.
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.

07x04 - The Male in the Mail Season 7 / Episode 4: - The Male in the Mail

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I beg your pardon.
Dr. Clark Edison: Before you said I should observe.
07x04 - The Male in the Mail Season 7 / Episode 4: - The Male in the Mail

Dr. Clark Edison: Because it's obvious you and Agent Booth were attracted to each other. I mean a blind man could see that. I just couldn't understand why you two just didn't rip each other's clothes off. I mean just get all butt-naked and - Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Uh. I'm - I'm sorry. It just popped out, okay?
