Special Agent Seeley Booth

Dr. Lance Sweets
Goof: Bones asks Booth if he believes that Moses wandered the desert for 40 days. The actual Bible story is that Moses wandered the desert for 40 years, not 40 days. Being so smart, one would think that Bones would know such a common story. If not, then surely Booth should have known, since he's a religious man.
The "Busted By Bill" set and newsroom are actually the recycled set of the cancelled Fox newsroom comedy Back To You.
Brennan: He was perpetuating a primitive and prurient morality by parading victims for the purpose of entertainment.
Booth: That guy is gay.
Brennan: He is not gay.
Booth: Please, double cheek kiss, tight Italian suit ...
Booth: Never married ...
Booth: Bones, two guys at the same time? That's not right! I mean that's why they invented dueling.
Sweets: Does it seem that your partnership provides a surrogate relationship, making it more difficult to form other bonds?
Brennan: A surrogate relationship wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing because then I could avoid the sting of rejection which, however fleeting ... is still uncomfortable.
Booth: Right. Okay, look, I'm sorry, you know what, if Mark and Jason don't know how lucky they are, they don't deserve you in the first place.
Brennan: No, relationships are temporary.
Booth: No, that's not true, Bones, you're wrong. Okay, there is someone for everyone, someone you're meant to spend the rest of your life with. Alright, you just have to be open enough to see it ... that's all.
Mark: Why don't we ever to a concert? As a matter of fact, we don't we ever leave your bedroom?
(Jason looks from Mark to Brennan)
Brennan: Um, can we talk about this later? We're about to arrest-
Jason: (about Mark) You're dating this guy?
Brennan: I don't like that term, it has an antiquated moral and needlessly restrictive connotation.
Mark: (to Jason) And who are you?
Jason: Obviously a guy who is not doing as well as you. (Booth looks satisfied)
Brennan: This is Jason, Jason - Mark, Mark - Jason. Please understand Jason, you're very good looking but sexual attraction is an involuntary hormonal response involving an increase in neutrofins and testosterone-
Mark: (looks at Jason) So you get to go out?
Brennan: Mark you are a strong and attentive man, but Jason is more stimulating, intellectually.
Jason: That's not the only way I can be stimulating.
Booth: Um ... murderer?
Brennan: Murderer, yes.
Mark: (pointing at Booth) What do you do with this one Temperance?
Brennan: Oh, uhh ... Booth is my partner that's all.
Booth: We should go.
Booth: (entering the room; Sweets is looking through the "Busted By Bill" tapes) What'd I miss?
Sweets: Uh ... six men crying, two insisting they'd gotten lost, and four saying they were trying to show the poor young woman how dangerous the Internet could be.
Booth: Listen, Noel we'd like to harness you for your natural abilities.
Noel: You want your chart done?
Brennan: No. Stalking. You like ... to stalk people.
Noel: Observe them.
Booth: (knocking on Brennan's apartment door) Bones, wakey-wakey. Bones? (Brennan opens the door) Wakey-wakey. Eggs and bakey.
Bones: (commenting on one of the two guys she is dating simultaneously) He is a deep sea welder.
Booth: Whoa, wow, geez. I wouldn't even think to put that on the list.
Bones: They work on oil derricks, repair boats. After being at sea for months at a time, he seems to ... enjoy having a sexual relationship, so ...
Booth: Sure. Sure. Deep sea welder.
Bones: He can hold his breath for three minutes down there.
Bones: Of course!
Daisy: Dr. Brennan and I are, like, the same, you know? We just– we understand that the dead don't talk back, or want the window open when it's freezing out, or pick at your plate, or pee on the toilet seat ...
Cam: You might want to keep a little mystery about yourself.
Daisy: Sure. But you're gonna put in a good word for me, right? I mean, wouldn't it be fun if I were here forever?!
Cam: (faintly) Yeah.
(after Booth interrupts Brennan at her home while she has a guy over)
Brennan: It would be good if you called first.
Booth: Well who knew you were even dating?
Brennan: Well I wouldn't call it dating. We ... occasionally make arrangements
to spend time together.
Booth: I'm just surprised you're not more picky.
Brennan: My relationship with Mark is purely physical, and I am very satisfied with him in that area. Did you see his chest and his thighs?
Daisy: (perky and cheery) Hi Doctor Brennan!
Dr. Brennan: (irritated) I don't fraternize at work.
Daisy: You're like a hero to me.
Brennan: Hero worship exposes a lack of independent intellectual examination. (to Cam and Angela) I'll tell Booth what we found.
Daisy: She is so smart!
Brennan: ... Mark keeps me quite sated sexually.
Angela: You really gotta learn some girl talk sweetie.
Brennan: (about Booth) He should be happy that I found a way to satisfy myself, that just happens to require - two men.
Angela: I've done that ... I miss college.
Angela: Bloodshot eyes and wood in a pill. Party time!
Booth: (walking out the door with Brennan) How about Chinese?
Sweets: I love Chinese! Love it.
Brennan: (ignoring Sweets) I feel more like Thai.
