Main Characters in this Episode
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I can't do it. Listen I have to be involved. If I'm the father then... I have to be a father.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: No, Booth has a bigger mandible and a more prominent zygomatic than Fisher, as well as a more pronounced ratio between the width of his clavicles and his ilia.
Angela Montenegro: So, it's because Booth is hot?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I can't do it. Listen, I have to be involved. If I'm the father then... I have to *be* a father.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You were seeing something in there, what were you seeing?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Stewie. The baby from The Family Guy.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You saw Stewie in there, in the interrogation room?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: What do you say, about the kid?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Fine, I won't have a baby.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: "Fine." That's it?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It doesn't matter now, we're going to the hospital.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: It's no big deal, okay.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: No, it is. Booth, you thought you saw Luc Robitaille and then the ghost of a dead friend and now a cartoon baby. Trust me, something is wrong. Trust me.
- Goof (continuity error): When Booth and Brennan are questioning Dunwood in the interrogation room, the top of a wine bottle can be seen sitting on the table when the camera faces Dunwood. The camera switches to a shot of Booth where we see him pick up and hold the bottle. The camera then goes back to the shot of Dunwood and we can see the top of the bottle on the table again. When the shot returns to Booth, he is still holding the bottle as if he had never set it down.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Hodgins claims to find a "grommet" when sifting through the goo. Bones asks for it, he hands her a toupee screw. A grommet is a metal ring used to protect a hole in cloth.
- Goof (revealing mistake): When Booth and Brennan are in the car after Cam talks to Booth about his potential sperm donation, we can see the scenery on each side of the car. While the camera is on Booth, the scenery reel ends, switching instantly from a building to park scenery.
- Goof (plot holes): When the wine barrel was being examined it was revealed that the wine had turned into a viscous vinegar-like liquid. This would have been noticeable during the wine tasting as would the rancid smell.
- Stewie was allowed to appear in this episode because Bones & Family Guy are both owned and broadcasted on FOX network channels.
