  • Quotes (3)

    • Booth: Well, you know, we're running out of time here, Bones. I mean, you're due, what, in six weeks. We got to find a house.
      Brennan: Well, there is a simple solution.
      Booth: No, uh-uh, I need my man cave.
      Brennan: Then I need an anthropologist cave.
      Booth: All right, so we need a man cave, a girl cave, and a perfect baby's room with at least an acre of land. No wonder we can't find a house.

    • Caroline: Any way you cut the sandwich, Ezra Krane knows something, he's just not talking.
      Booth: Okay, well, you want me to bring him in?
      Caroline: You know me so well, cher. Threaten him with conspiracy and obstruction. Make the son of a bitch hurt; just don't leave any marks.
      Booth: Well, much as I'd like, you know, I'm not gonna be beating him up, Caroline.
      Caroline: I know, I know. But a girl can dream, cher.

    • Sweets: You did it, but you couldn't have done it. It's quantum indeterminacy.
      Pelant: I knew you'd say that. I have a lot of time on my hands, so I've read all the court transcripts where you guys gave testimony.
      Booth: You are not gonna get away with this, pal.
      Sweets: Actually, it kind of looks like he is.
      Pelant: It's the giant flaw in our system. Trying to make the system secure, we make it more complex. But the more complex we make it, the more insecure we actually are.
      Booth: Wow. It turns out I'm not a complex guy. I'm a simple guy, and simple guys always take down guys like you.

    Notes (4)

    • Originally scheduled for December 15, 2011, as the winter finale and break for star Emily Deschanel's maternity leave, Fox network switched this episode with the scheduled rerun of the Bones backdoor pilot episode, "The Finder." Presumably this swap was made in hopes of giving The Finder's series premiere a bigger lead-in audience than the rerun would have done.

    • This episode aired at a special time, 8:00 pm E/P (7:00 pm CT), as The Finder took over Bones' time slot for the duration of Emily Deschanel's maternity leave.
