  • Quotes (4)

    • Bones: You know the difference between strength and imperviousness, right?
      Booth: No, not if you're going to get all scientific on me.
      Bones: (laughs) Well, uh … a substance that is impervious to damage doesn't need to be strong.
      Booth: Hmm.
      Bones: When you and I met, I was an impervious substance. Now I am a strong substance.
      Booth: I think I know what you mean.
      Bones: A time could come when … you aren't angry anymore and … I'm strong enough to risk losing the last of my imperviousness. Maybe then, we could try to be together.

    • Hodgins: Spud-tastic! This is for the victim's cell phone? Wendell: Yeah, I'm connecting groups of potatoes in series to increase voltage. Then we can connect these potatoes together in parallel to increase amperage. Hodgins: Spud-sational, totally spud-tacular. Can I help? Angela: If you stop making spud jokes. Hodgins: Sorry. My sincerest potatologies.

    • Wendell: (looking at Angela) Holy cow! Angela: I heard that. Wendell: Oh, no, no, no, no. Heh, it was, um … it was an exclamation of admiration. I wasn't actually … Hodgins: You should stop now. Save yourself. Wendell: … commenting on your size.

    • Booth: All right, look, I will pay for breakfast. Yes. So you guys can help me take those seats back to my apartment. Bones: Uh, didn't you hear what I said? There's a body. Booth: Which will still be dead if we get there 15 minutes late.

    • Booth: September 21, 1980, Veterans Stadium …
      Booth is referring to Game 6 of the 1980 World Series in which the Philadelphia Phillies won their first World Championship in the 98-year history of the franchise. Philadelphia reliever Tug McGraw did indeed strike out Kansas City Royals left fielder Willie Wilson to clinch the Series.
