Dr. Lance Sweets: Okay, what about the sexual component in their relationship?
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Ah.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Would you agree that they have both sublimated their attraction to each other, out of fear of endangering their working relationship because their working relationship is paramount to both of them.
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Alas, I'm afraid I wouldn't agree with that.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Wow... Which part?
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: With everything you just said. Yes, one of them is acutely aware of that attraction, struggles daily with it, in fact.

Special Agent Seeley Booth: [Watching from his offioe and speaking to Bones with an earbud] Okay listen, Bones, you just tell him you don't care if he did it or not, you'll just throw his ass in jail. [Bones scoffs] It's all right to lie during an interrogation, it's a technique.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: The evidence is inconclusive regarding your guilt, [rising up and starts yelling] But I will damn well make sure it's conclusive!
Dr. Lance Sweets: Whoa. What?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Atta girl, give it to him.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yeah, I'm fine. Here. [She folds up Booth's handkerchief and puts it in the front pocket of his suit over his heart, pressing her hand to it. She withdraws her hand and he presses his own hand to the handkerchief, holding his hand over his heart for a moment]
