Episode Quotes

Aldo Clemens: Like all of us, he has two sides to him. He has one side that wants to save the world, and one side that wants to take care of the ones he loves. Those two collide - that's what you call a "tortured soul."
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: There's no such thing as a soul.
Aldo Clemens: Says you. But Booth values nothing higher than his soul. Yet he's willing to sacrifice his soul to kill Pelant.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Why?
Aldo Clemens: [Slight chuckle] You, of course... It's always going to come down to you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Is it okay if I don't have a drink?
Aldo Clemens: No! You people are killing me here! This is a business!
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Not a very good business
Aldo Clemens: Because people don't buy drinks!
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Okay, what if I buy a drink but don't drink it?
Aldo Clemens: That works for me
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Wh-what does this all mean, Sweet? Spell it out.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Well, Dr. Brennan is Pelant's endgame. He's trying to replace you. Has he done anything to prevent the two of you from getting together that we don't know about. [Booth thinks about it] I'll take that as a "yes."


  • Goof (plot holes): SPOILER: The fate of the first body is never made clear. Pelant may possibly have had time to kill Flynn, flay him appropriately, and position him correctly in the time before the park opened (less than 5 hours after Flynn's departure from the garage), but how did he dispose of the first body?
