Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Lance Sweets
Special Agent Seeley Booth
Tom Fargood/Alexander Gallo
Assistant U.S. Attorney Caroline Julian
Goof: When Brennan is talking to Harmonia in her house, you can see only two rows of cards are laid down. Yet after flipping only one card, she is placing them in the corner nearest Brennan showing a 3rd row partially filled in.
Goof: when Angela types in "retirement communities" into her recognition program, the word 'algorithm' is spelled 'alogrithm' on the computer screen.
In the closing act, Caroline Julian gives Bones and Booth a ride in a yellow AMC Gremlin. The car looks exactly like Caroline's car in the season two episode "Judas on a Pole," which was badly damaged after Booth borrowed it and Bones's brother Russ backed into it with an SUV while escaping with Bones's father. The damage to Caroline's car was most likely more than it was worth, so unless she restored it out-of-pocket or found another car of the same model, color, and design, this is a goof.
Booth: (to Sweets) I don't own a nightclub, I'm not married to Bones, you are not a zany bartender, and I hate clowns.
Booth seems to forget this fact at the end of the episode, when passing by a clown with Brennan. However, Booth could have mentioned his hate of clowns as a fact he knew was true regarding his former self, but one that may not be true anymore -- giving the situation more believability.
Goof: About three-fourths of the way though the episode Brennan is attacked by Dr. Leacock. He stabs her in the arm and she is clearly badly injured. However, for the rest of the episode no bandage is seen on either of Brennan's arms.
Booth's middle name is revealed in this episode -- Booth himself says it's Joseph.
Avalon: (reading Tarot cards for Brennan) This man was lost. You brought him the light that showed him the way home. Without it he would have died.
Angela: Booth was in a coma. Brennan read him the book that she was writing. When Booth woke up he thought that, they had a whole different life together. He thought that they were married. He thought that for days.
Avalon: You were joined to that time. You're still joined.
Brennan: Nothing either of you is saying, makes sense.
Avalon: (reading Tarot cards for Brennan) I see a sick man in a hospital. He takes refuge in a dream life. You are there, in the dream, and you are helping him to create that dream life by tellin' him a story. You're both so happy in the story, so happy it's almost sad when he wakens.
Brennan: Okay, no offense to you and your psychic, but I just got off a flight from Guatemala. I wanna go, check in with Cam and then shower and change.
Avalon: (turning over a card titled "The Lovers") Ooohh. The man whose life you saved is really excited to see you again.
Cam: (seeing Brennan for the first time since she's gotten back from her trip) Dr. Brennan! Would you care to hug?
Camille: Okay. I'm good with that. Welcome home.
Caroline: (watching the video of Bones and Booth as they trick Avalon into attacking her sister's killer) That was sneaky.
Bones: Is sneaky good or bad?
Caroline: Good if it holds up in court.
Cam: Next time make it look more like you're taking advantage of the situation not scripting it.
Camille: The things that make you a great cop have nothing to do with the socks. What's really on your mind?
Booth: All right. Um, that uh, place that I went to, you know, in my coma dream.
Booth: It was just, Bones and I, it was so real.
Camille: You're in love with Dr. Brennan. (Booth stares at her, she smiles)
Booth: What I'm wondering is, am I the same guy?
Camille: Uhh ... sweet, kickass, FBI murder solver with hard fists and a lion heart?
Booth: Uh huh.
Camille: Yep, you're still him.
Sweets: Do you miss anything about the alternative life you experienced while in a coma?
Booth: (thoughtful) Yeah... (smiles) The clothes. Hm. I miss those clothes, they were great clothes.
Sweets: Okay, I'm certifying you as fit for duty.
Booth: (cradles Bones in his arms, as she's been badly injured) Ambulance is on the way, okay?
Bones: Keep the pressure on the wound.
Booth: I got it. I got it. Just relax. Just trust me, alright? I'll take care of you. Shhh, I got you. Breathe. I'll take care of you I'm right here. I'm not going anywhere. (kisses the top of her head; she pulls his arm tighter around her) I got you baby.
Bones: What did you want to tell me?
Booth: (pauses) That I love you. (Bones is shocked; Booth pauses) In a professional, 'atta girl' kind of way.
Bones: (doubtfully) 'Atta girl' kind of way? (she recovers) Right back at'cha Booth. I love you too. (punches his shoulder playfully) 'Atta Boy.'
Avalon: (doing a reading on Bones) The riddle you can't solve is how ... somebody could love you.
Bones: (scoffs) Well I'm, beautiful and very intelligent.
Avalon: The answer to the question that you're afraid to say out loud is ... yes. He knows the truth of you, and he is dazzled by that truth.
Avalon: (after Brennan was attacked) Dr. Brennan. How are you feeling?
Bones: Well, they gave me medication. So I feel how I imagine people of average intelligence feel, all the time.
Booth: (talking to Cam about how he's in love with Bones) Right. Right yeah and uh ... tell Bones how I feel.
Cam: Yes. Except ... be sure about your feelings because if you crack that shell, and you change your mind she'll, die of loneliness before she'll trust anyone ever again.
Avalon: You two are gonna keep doing things as usual.
Booth: Sometimes you gotta settle for second best.
Avalon: By the way, my cards tell me this all works out eventually.
Booth: Oh. Really?
Bones: What works out eventually?
(Booth smiles and walks into his office)
Avalon: You're the man that was in the coma, aren't you? Would you pick a card please?
Booth: Ah ... okay. Uh ...
Avalon: You're worried ... you lost something.
Booth: L-look M-Miss Harmonia, I really don't need a tarot reading right now. What I need to know is how you knew that those people were buried under Tavishin fountain.
Avalon: It's all in the cards Agent Booth. You can't argue with what's in the cards. You never lost anything in that coma Agent Booth. You gained something.
Cyndi Lauper, who guest starred as the psychic in this episode, asked to be a guest star on Bones after watching Emily Deschanel sing her song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" in the Season 3 episode "Wannabe in the Weeds."
