    • Daisy: I'm becoming a certified doula.
      Brennan: You aren't getting anywhere near my cervix, Ms. Wick.
      Daisy: Just saying. Should you find yourself in need – I could stop at the perineum.

    • Cam: You have anything?
      Brennan: There's a fragment of the right ninth rib with striations that are consistent with a stab wound. But there's so little evidence, it would be irresponsible for me to form a conclusion at this point.
      Angela: Come on. Just this once.
      Brennan: No.
      Cam: You can do it. Just say, "It's a stabbing."
      Brennan: I can't.
      Angela: We'll think you're cool if you do.
      Brennan: Well, I want to be cool … but I can't.
      Angela: It's okay, honey. We still love you just the same.

    • Daisy: Do you think I overstepped my bounds by becoming a doula?
      Hodgins: Yes.
      Daisy: No, really.
      Hodgins: Yes, really.
      Daisy: But it was so nice of me.
      Hodgins: It's more creepy than nice.
      Daisy: You're joking.
      Hodgins: Wish I was.

    • Booth: You have to learn how to compromise.
      Brennan: I can compromise. I'm willing to let you have our daughter baptized.
      Booth: Really?
      Brennan: Mm-hmm. Children need mythology. It helps them make sense of the world.
      Booth: My religion is not a myth.
      Brennan: I'm an author, Booth. I understand how narrative works, and so does your Bible. A pregnant woman is about to give birth. She finds an inn, but they won't let her stay there, so she is forced to give birth in a barn. Whoever wrote that, really knew how to manipulate an audience.
      Booth: Well, it happened.
      Brennan: Fine. You can baptize our daughter and I will make sure that she is born at home, perfect compromise.

    • Booth: Sweets, just get on with this, OK, so I don't have to look at that thing.
      Sweets: What do you have against a cappuccino machine?
      Booth: This is a diner. I come here because there is no cappuccino machine. Understand? Some things, they need to be sacred, right? Preserved, all right? In this country there is a line between coffee and foamy crap. And when that line gets blurred people may just become animals.
      Sweets: You OK?
      Booth: No, no I'm not OK! I'm not dunking my donut into some cappuccino. That's not why I joined the Army. I didn't join the Army for that, you know?
      Sweets: Take two regular coffees please. Thanks
      Booth: Two black.
      Sweets: Sit.
