Episode Quotes

Temperance Brennan: You know, when I think about what I value most - you, Christine, Hank, Parker, even my friendship with Angela, none of it makes any sense. It was not planned.
Arastoo Vaziri: I think I found cause of death
Camille Saroyan: Excellent! But while it's just you and me, I was hoping that we might be able to talk. Like talk-talk
Arastoo Vaziri: You mean about what Dr. Hodgins and I were discussing earlier?
Camille Saroyan: Look, I want nothing more than to marry you, and I know how much you want to be a father...
Arastoo Vaziri: Cam, can we talk about this later?
Camille Saroyan: Not really. Biologically speaking our options begin to shrink in the not so distant future
Arastoo Vaziri: I hear you, but when I look at you, all I see are limitless possibilities
Jack Hodgins: [Wheels in] That is the most beautiful thing I've ever awkwardly interrupted
Angela Montenegro: [Bones walks in] Oh, hey, honey, I'm almost done. I just feel badly, It's not a very flattering portrait I'm afraid
Temperance Brennan: Yes, I agree. The way you've drawn him, he reminds me of Eddie, the Iron Maiden mascot
Angela Montenegro: Excuse me?
Temperance Brennan: Iron Maiden? Not the torture instrument of historic myth, but the English heavy metal band
Angela Montenegro: You know who Iron Maiden is? You, who thinks Maroon 5 is a color palette?
Temperance Brennan: Yes. I have long been fascinated with Black and Heavy Metal cultures ever since we had the case involving Skalle. "Skalle" incidentally means 'skull' in Norwegian
Angela Montenegro: Yes, I remember that


  • Goof (plot holes): SPOILER: How did the victim's body get in the barrel if an elderly man murdered him and suffered a broken clavicle?


  • David Boreanaz and guest star Jack Plotnick had worked together previously in season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
