  • We knew it would come someday. And it was a little rushed, almost like an afterthought but I still thoroughly enjoyed this season's finale. Can't wait to see the next season.

    • (While Angela lies in bed at the hospital, Wendell and Cam are videoconferencing via web cam.) Cam: Hey, Sherry, how's it going? Dr. Banno: Oh, hey, Cam. We are solving a murder when we're supposed to be concentrating on bringing a life into the world.

    • Hodgins: Okay, you do know that that hot sauce—the only thing it's doing is making the baby sweat. Angela: My dad says that this always brings on labor. Hodgins: Oh, yeah. And a rock 'n roll guitar god is definitely the go-to guy for obstetrics.

    • Wendell: You know, the only perimortem injury that I could find is this fracture to the nasal bone. Hodgins: Who dies of a broken nose? Wendell: Exactly. If I can't figure out the cause of death, Dr. Brennan's gonna be tossing me into that machine. Hodgins: Right. Wendell: You're supposed to say, "No, she'll understand." Hodgins: Oh, but she won't. Wendell: Ah, that is so funny.

    • Angela: I'm pretty sure any day the Guinness people are gonna come and measure me. Hodgins: You look beautiful. Angela: Yeah, for a water buffalo.

    • Brennan: (about Angela and Hodgins) They looked so happy. Booth: Yeah, well, they had a baby. Brennan: But their whole lives have changed. You think they'd be a little more apprehensive. Booth: Well, you know, having a baby—that's a good thing. Brennan: Y-you really think that? Booth: Yeah, it's a great thing. What? What? Oh, come on, Bones. Look, the baby … the baby's fine. It's healthy. They had a healthy baby, all right? They love each other. This is the happiest day of their lives. Okay? (Brennan looks at Booth.) Booth: What? Brennan: I'm … I'm pregnant. (long pause) You're the father. (Booth smiles.)

    Trivia (2)

    • Trivia: Brennan and Booth go undercover in this episode as "Buck" and "Wanda," an engaged couple. These are the same undercover names they used in "Double Trouble in the Panhandle."

    • Angela and Hodgins named their son Michael Staccato Vincent Hodgins, although in "The Killer in the Crosshairs" Hodgins earned the right not to use any part of his father-in-law's dreamt name, "Staccato Mamba."
