  • Quotes (3)

    • Sweets: Sorry, Booth. I should have locked the door, huh?
      Brennan: Because you played on so many sports teams and spent a lot of time in the army, I assumed you were comfortable with male nudity.
      Sweets: You know, fear of nudity is called gymnophobia?
      Booth: Okay, listen, psychology and anthropology, I liked it better when you two were fighting, all right?

    • Brennan: In order to appease Huehueteotl, the fire god, the Aztecs would burn their captives alive. Moments before death, the human sacrifices were pulled from the fire to have their still-beating hearts ripped out of their chests.
      Fisher: Those were the good old days.
      Hodgins: Those were the bad days. What-what kind of freak feels nostalgic over human sacrifices?
      Fisher: I'm gonna go ahead and plead the Fifth on that.

    • (Brennan and her team discuss the injuries that eviscerated the victim.)
      Angela: Okay, just please tell me that this poor thing was dead before any of this happened.
      Cam: I'm sure she was.
      Hodgins: Definitely.
      Angela: Great.
      Brennan: Hodgins and Cam are lying to Angela to spare her feelings.
      Fisher: Yeah, I got that.
