    • Sweets: If Carlson's wife found out he was about to give everything away, I mean, that could certainly be a motive for murder.
      Sparling: If that was my husband, I'd sure as hell want him dead.
      Sweets: I'll remember that.
      Sparling: Oh. Are we getting married now? 'Cause I didn't even know we were partners.
      Sweets: No. Oh. That was a joke. I didn't mean...
      Sparling: Didn't Freud say there are no meaningless statements?
      Sweets: Freud, Freud. He's largely discredited now. He's a known cocaine addict. He's not... I'm gonna go in and call, uh, Carlson's wife for questioning.
      Sparling: I suppose I could do a lot worse than you.

    • Caroline: You know you're not getting that promotion now, right?
      Booth: Wait a second, why? I caught the bad guy. That's got to count for something.
      Caroline: Well, it makes me all tingly, that's for sure, but that's it. You're gonna have to settle with running around, shooting people until you grow up.
      Booth: Well, you wouldn't love me any other way, right?

    • Sweets: You know, it's possible to work with a woman without becoming romantically involved.
      Angela: Okay.
      Sweets: I am with Daisy. I wouldn't do anything to hurt her.
      Angela: I notice you say, "I'm with Daisy," and not "I love Daisy."
      Sweets: Oh, come on. Can you please not use linguistic indicators that I taught you against me?

    • Sweets: Sparling doesn't seem to trust how I, as a psychologist, perform my job.
      Booth: I don't know, she thinks you're an idiot?
      Sweets: I wouldn't say that, but in layman's terms … yes.
      Booth: Okay, look. You're the psychologist. Point your little shrinky brain at her and pull the trigger.
      Sweets: There's a lot of shooting talk coming from you today, huh?
      Booth: Right. So if I were you, I would take cover.

    • (Brennan stare at him sadly after their disagreement.)
      Booth: Don't do that. Not that look, please. Don't give me the sad eyes.
      Brennan: Please.
      Booth: Ah, come on. No, I'm not looking. I'm driving.
      Brennan: Come on.
      Booth: (to himself) Just keep driving. Oh, you were never able to do this look before the baby. What did the baby do to you?

    • This is the first of the so-called "bonus" episodes from season seven to air. They were ordered by Fox after the season was shortened to 13 episodes due to Emily Deschanel's pregnancy leave. Initially touted as a mini-season that might air during the summer by Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan in February and March 2012 interviews, in July 2012 the network made the decision to interweave these standalone stories throughout season eight.

      Am I over thinking things that "Olivia Sparling" is supposed to be Bones' version of Fringe's Olivia Dunham? Besides the same first name, both are blonde and dress about the same. Finder had a mention of Fringe in a line. Not sure I like the cocky attitude, but I guess if she stays, they can develop her character. Also I love the black humor on this show. In the start after the guy is blown up, his skull lands near a 'no smoking' sign. :sigh: I love it!

      Now that Tina Majorino has gone over to GA I really hope they keep Danielle Panabaker on. Heck, I would watch a spin off with Olivia and Sweats.
