    • Bones: (interrogating Maureen Perot) I'm Dr. Brennan. Maureen Perot: Yeah, I know. We met like five times. Bones: Together you and I are gonna help each other out here. Maureen Perot: If by help you mean put me in the electric chair. (laughs) Bones: Was that a confesssion? Because it ... sounded like a confession. Maureen Perot: No no no, I was- I was being, umm ... are you serious? Sweets: (in the observation room; after getting a look from Booth) I'm sorry.

    • Bones: He lied to you. You should go talk to Buddy. Booth: Yes, I- I should. Bones: Then, tell Miss Lust to get up. Strawberry Lust: I ... think that might be a little embarassing right now. Huh baby? Booth: That's my gun.

    • Sweets: (about Bones' horrific interrogation skills) That's it? Ugh, okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. You were right, she wasn't ready. Booth: No, she wasn't ready, Sweets. But we found out something really, really important. Sweets: What, the woman bowls?

    • Nigel-Murray: The fire appears not to have damaged the remains. Bones: How did it start? (Hodgins and Nigel-Murray point to the body) Cam: Oh I see, so we're going with the old "blame the corpse" defense.

    • Hodgins: Makes me 'King of the Lab.' Nigel-Murray: A large percentage of the monarchy are actually mentally handicapped due to inbreeding. Hodgins: (pauses) Can't ruin it for me. 'King of the Lab'!

    Trivia (4)

    • Dr. Saroyan seems not to learn her lesson. Once again she forgot to put a mask on her face, or at least tell everybody to leave the room before she cut open the body that released an unknown foaming compound. In the past she could have died by making a similar mistake in season two's "The Man in the Cell".

    • Goof: When Strawberry Lust is giving a lap dance to Booth, the money in her bra changes position several times between shots, and even disappears at one point.

    • As she has stated in multiple previous episodes, Dr. Brennan once again insists that she is an excellent driver at the end of this episode, despite her poor driving performance which suggests the contrary.

    • Goof: In the last scene, where Bones and Booth are in a bar, Brennan's hairstyle suddenly changes.
