  • Quotes (3)

    • Finn: Uh, I heard about your little girl, and I just wanted to say that there's nothing special about biting. I mean, my mama said I used to chew on folks like a cannibal at Thanksgiving dinner. And I turned out okay.
      Brennan: You served time in a juvenile correction facility for stabbing your stepfather.
      Finn: But I stabbed him in self-defense. I-I went to juvie for theft and malicious mischief. Yeah, that doesn't sound good.

    • Pabla: You said you were on my side!
      Booth: No, he said he understood why you go psycho.
      Sweets: Okay, I wouldn't use that word.
      Booth: I know. That's why I'm here.

    • Brennan: I'm not familiar with Judge Trudy. What circuit is she on?
      Angela: Citizen's Court.
      Brennan: Does that have something to do with the French Revolution?
      Cam: No. Judge Trudy has a TV show where she judges small claims cases.
      Brennan: Why?
      Angela: Because it's great drama. People just fight over the silliest little things. You should see the way that they yell and scream at each other. Total guilty pleasure.
      Cam: Like watching a train wreck.
      Brennan: Train wrecks are not pleasurable. No wonder you feel guilty.
