Dr. Jack Hodgins: What? You don't wanna take a stab in front of me.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I am inhibited by my desire not to embarrass myself in front of another scientist.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: [to Hodgins] You should take that as a compliment.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: [Indicating Booth] What about him?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, we live together and thus share the same synergistic lack of inhibition which allows us to have sex without being self-conscious.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: That's very romantic, Bones.

Meet him, all ye angels of the Lord, receiving his soul, presenting it in the sight of God Almighty. Amen. That's a battle field prayer, but I'm mostly a soldier, so... it seems to fit.
