    • Angela : Yeah, because if you can't do the job like Brennan...
      Cam: He's not Dr. Brennan, Angela. And he is the resident forensic anthropologist here. You will respect him.
      Angela : I don't believe this. I mean, don't you care?
      Cam : No, no. Don't, don't go there. Not with me. We are all doing what we can to get Dr. Brennan clear and back here. But this lab has other work to do as well.
      Angela : Well, my first priority is clearing Brennan.
      Cam : So, if you wanna stay here and use this facility to decode Pelant's handy work, you'll cooperate with Dr. Edison.

    • Brennan: "Blank" is Angela's thinking face, leave her alone.
      Booth: Well look at that, Bones is back!

    • Sweets: There are three sides to a triangle.
      Brennan: Your understanding of geometry is not very advanced.

    • Cam: I apologize.
      Clark: For what?
      Cam: For not realizing sooner that what you're working toward here, to clear Dr. Brennan and bring her home, will most likely lead to you losing your position here.
      Clark: It definitely occurred to me.
      Cam: Yet, what didn't occur to you was to do a bad job. I'll never forget that.

    • Caroline: But you can clear me.
      Angela: Totally. I'm gonna send this to the computer forensics team at the FBI.
      Caroline: Then I can get back on this case and put that rank little weasel in jail for the rest of his scrawny-ass life. Do I sound bitter?
      Angela: Oh, not nearly enough.
      Caroline: Well, I'm just warming up.
