    • (Booth and Brennan are sharing his kitchen as they make breakfast.) Booth: You want me to, uh, help you with that? Brennan: No, I can make toast. It's just your kitchen is very small. Booth: My kitchen is the same size that it's always been. Look at it. Brennan: The implication being that I have grown bigger. I'm aware of that. Booth: No, no, it's not that you've grown bigger. It's that you've … you know, y-you've grown out. You've gotten larger, you know? Like, you just expanded then (stutters to a stop) you look great, by the way.

    • Booth: So, uh … y-your magazine is in my oatmeal. Brennan: Oh! You know, we don't have to go through this. My place is much roomier. Booth: Well, we both agreed to split time. Brennan: Yes, and we are. Booth: Neither of us really likes it. Brennan: I'm fine. Booth: Ohh … come on, Bones, you know what? It's been five months, and we spend almost all of our time together. What we need is one bed. One place. Our place. Brennan: I thought you said you'd never move in with someone again unless you're married. Booth: (chuckles) Are you asking me to marry you? Brennan: What? Me? No, no! You're the one who believes in marriage. I'm not going to bring it up. Booth: Well, you just did. Brennan: Are you saying that you aren't going to ask me to marry you? Booth: No, you are going to ask me to marry you.

    • Booth: Everything okay, Bones? Brennan: (sobbing over the remains) Of course. I'm merely experiencing emotional … inconsistencies due to hormones secreted … during pregnancy. Dr. Jack Hodgins: Angela used to cry at the ShamWow commercial

    • Cam: (removing a brain during an autopsy) Hard to believe these three little pounds are the reason we are who we are.
      Wendell: (as a swarm of insects promptly begin crawling out of the brain) Whoa!
      Cam: Oh, my God!
      Wendell: There's beetles in there!
      Hodgins: Come to papa, my little friends! See, they may have ingested some of the particulates that were on the weapon.
      Cam: Judging by the shape of the injury and the fact that some of the brain tissue seems to be torn, it looks like something metal, with a jagged edge.
      Hodgins: Well, maybe you could help us, couldn't you?
      Cam: Really? They're beetles, not puppies, Dr. Hodgins.

    • Wendell: Still, I mean, you crying … I would've loved to have seen that. Brennan: Why? Angela: It's sort of like an eclipse. It doesn't happen that often. Brennan: Well, Booth took a picture of me, but since I have a picture of him cooking an omelet naked, he agreed never to show it to anyone.

    Notes (3)

    • The end of this episode had a dedication card sequenced before the end credits that read, "Emily Therese Maki 1996 - 2011" underneath her picture. Emily was a 14-year-old teenager who died from a stroke in her home state of Wisconsin on August 10, 2011.

    • New footage in the opening credits montage includes a clip from the Season five's "The Proof in the Pudding" in which government agents insist Brennan and her team examine skeletal remains preserved in a form-fitting steel coffin which are eerily similar to JFK.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Booth, Brennan and Hodgins are at the crime scene looking for evidence, Booth tries to take a picture of Brennan crying over the body. You can hear the camera phone taking photos, but you can clearly see (even at normal speed) that his home screen never changes into camera mode.
