Special Agent Seeley Booth
Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
FBI Agent Sanders
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Booth, as a lawman, isn't wearing his seat belt when he and Dr. Brennan are driving to the crime scene. He has also been seen not wearing his seat belt in car drives during the first season.
Zack: The force used to make the injuries on the bones was 24 Newton-Meters.
This is technically wrong. The SI unit for force is a Newton. The SI unit for torque is Newton-meters.
In the beginning of the episode, Booth calls his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend Stu, when his real name was Drew.
Goof: When they are driving to see the body, Brennan tells Booth to take "the I-70." I-70 starts on the west side of Baltimore and continues west until it terminates in Utah; there is no portion east of Baltimore that could have taken them to Delaware. Driving from D.C., they would most likely have taken US 50 East to US 301 to get to the body.
When Bones and Booth are on the way to see Richardson, at the end of their conversation Bones says to Booth "Hey even an empiricist can have a heart Booth" but the camera changes to the side of Bones and she doesn't actually mouth the words "heart Booth" even though you can still hear her saying it.
When Booth and Rebecca argue over her new boyfriend, she says she's not legally required to let Booth see Parker because they were never married. In D.C., though, custody disputes involving never-married parents are treated with reference to the same statutory factors as divorced parents. Thus, unless a court finds some detrimental effect on the child, each parent has visitation rights regardless of whether they were once married.
Zack: The force used to make the injuries on the bones was 24 newton-meters. And the winner is, with 24 newton-meters...Angela.
Brennan: Height and weight?
Angela: Oh god. U-uh...ugh. Five-eight, one hundred and hun...dre....
Angela: 135. It's all muscle.
Brennan: You think Richardson can rise to the occasion? Be a decent father?
Booth: He's got Carlie's parents to help him and I like to think that people can change.
Brennan: Faith and hope, right?
Brennan: Angela threw in love, too.
Booth: Love is good.
Brennan: (about Richardson) He didn't kill her.
Booth: No, but he ran. How do you just cut your family out of your life like that?
Brennan: What about Abraham?
Booth: You're gonna throw religion in my face right now?
Brennan: I thought you find answers in what you believe.
Booth: Well, that's the one Bible story that I just don't like. I mean, God commands Abraham to kill his own son and he does.
Brennan: Abraham does not kill Isaac.
Booth: But old Ab, he had the intention.
Brennan: I thought what he had was faith.
Booth: Look, I have faith. But if God himself came down, pointed at Parker and said I want you to, you know, that ain't gonna happen.
Brennan: God's messenger stopped Abraham?
Booth: Yeah. You know, grabbed his hand the last second right before the knife was about to go in.
Brennan: Ok, then the lesson I would learn from this myth -
Brennan: Fits the definition.
Booth: Ok, fine.
Brennan: That when it comes to your children your love has to be absolute. The messenger represents goodness, what you know to be right, ergo you have to remain open to what you know is true.
Booth: (smiles) Are you sure you're not religious?
Brennan: Science all the way.
Booth: Science all the way.
Brennan: Hey, even an empiricist can have a heart, Booth.
Brennan: I understand killers, I just don't know how mothers can do it. I mean, dogs can be trained in a couple of weeks. Kids, mothers have to give up their lives for years.
Booth: No, no. When you're looking at your kid, you don't feel like you're giving up anything.
Brennan: So, you'd do it again?
Brennan: You'd have Parker, even with everything you're going through?
Booth: What kind of question is that?
Brennan: Wouldn't it be easier if Parker wasn't caught in this drama of yours, with Rebecca, new boyfriend?
Booth: God, no, no, Bones! He's my son. Whatever we're going through, it's not about that and he knows that.
Brennan: That's what parents say when they want to justify themselves.
Booth: You know, I haven't walked out on Parker, alright? I would never have done what your parents did.
Brennan: I didn't say you would, I just - I don't know. You're the father, I don't know anything about raising kids.
Booth: Parker's fine.
(Booth and Brennan talking on the phone)
Booth: You want me to what?
Brennan: Stab the body for me. We need to match force with the injuries recorded on the remains.
Booth: Ok, I'm stabbing the body.
Brennan: It's a replica. We're all going to do it, you're just the closest to Kyle Richardson.
Booth: Ok, you know what? That's great, I'll be there in twenty. But in the future, you just got to ask me differently Bones, because you know what? Come over to your place to stab a body? That is just freaky.
(Booth and Brennan in the diner. Booth just finished talking to Parker on the phone)
Brennan: New boyfriend spending a lot of time with your son?
Booth: Yeah. So, you got any new information for me Bones?
Brennan: (referring to Parker) I'm sorry.
Booth: Yeah, there's no need.
Brennan: It must be hard, not being able to see him when you want to.
Booth: See, this is information that I already know, Bones. Why don't you, let's say we just discuss the case, hm?
Brennan: (sees that he's upset) Sure.
Booth: You know, I'm his father. Parker knows that. I mean, that's, that's what's important, not some stupid trip to the zoo.
Brennan: No, absolutely.
Brennan: Of course.
Cam: (about the main suspect) Looks like he's not walking this time Seeley.
Hodgins: Ironic, since he's running now.
Angela: Hodgins, you know Booth is bigger than you, right?
Hodgins: Right. (looks at Booth) Wasn't your fault, dude.
(Booth and Brennan in the car on their way to the crime scene)
Brennan: I don't see why I couldn't drive.
Booth: Cause you're agitated.
Brennan: No, I am not.
Booth: You know what? You've turned this into a competition between you and Cam.
Brennan: I just like to be first on the scene, that's all, to protect the evidence.
Booth: She's not going to disturb anything.
Brennan: No, it's all tissue and blood and DNA with her. She doesn't appreciate the skeletal system. You can take the I70, it'll be quicker.
Booth: Don't backseat drive, ok?
Brennan: Haha, I think I know who's agitated.
Booth: Someone is annoying me, ok? That's different.
Brennan: Your ex.
Brennan: That's who's annoying you. (teasingly) Because she has a new man in her life.
Booth: That's funny, you know, ok. I am concerned about my son. I wanna know what kind of guy this new boyfriend is and you know what? If she's not gonna tell me, I'll find out on my own.
Brennan: You're gonna run a background check on him?
Booth: You have kids and we'll talk.
Brennan: That's a lot to ask for a little conversation.
Brennan: And I'm supposed to know who that is?
Booth: Yeah. Disappeared a year ago, she was pregnant? Oh come on, Bones, you have to get a TV. Oh, hey, or at least, hey, thumb through a People to check out things.
Brennan: Was it in the Journal of Forensic Anthropology?
Booth: Oh, you know, I forgot to renew my subscription. You know Bones, you really need to take up some other interest.
Brennan: Well, I'm reading Ted Gioia's History of Jazz, was she mentioned in there? Or maybe in McGee's Science and Lore of the Kitchen. Or perhaps I should develop an interest in the mainstream media's exploitation of crimes for their entertainment value.
Booth: (amused) You know, that's amazing Bones, you can be really snotty sometimes.
Brennan: The knife is consistent with the one that caused the wounds. We've fitted it with an instrumented blade that will give us a digital readout of the Newton meters of each stab.
Zack: It's a dual-mass drop system.
Cam: All I hear is blah, blah, blah.
Hodgins: Cliff notes version: We all stab. One of us is the killer.
Booth: Thank you!
Angela: Sort of like a real creepy party game.
Brennan: Do you want children?
Cam: Maybe, if I can find one that sleeps late and cleans. Does this apply to the case in any way?
Brennan: No, just curious. Most people think it's odd when a woman doesn't want children but obviously, you don't.
Cam: Are you pregnant?
Brennan: No! I'm not.
Booth: Why are you looking at me?
Cam: Well as long as you're not leaving the lab every two minutes to pee...
Brennan: No intention of it.
Cam: So all this back and forth was for nothing. Good to know.
Booth: Booth, oh yeah Rebecca. Whoa wait a second. Slow down. This is my weekend with Parker. Okay I am his father, Stew is your boyfriend.
Cam: The last place I worked had a drunk sketch artist...
Hodgins: It's beautiful here.
Booth: Yeah, you know that's important for a murder.
Cam: (to Hodgins) Dozing off Hodgepodge.
Zack: There was a dead fish under the plastic.
Hodgins: Ooo and it's not even my birthday.
Cam: I love being a hero.
Brennan: A heroine.
Cam: Mmm, sounds too druggie. I'm going with hero.
Cam: Unless the liver has a written confession in it by a pet parakeet, we should have enough to build a solid forensic case against Richardson for the prosecutor.
Booth: (on the phone) Monkeys are Daddy's favorite! They're just like people!
Brennan: (interrupting) Actually, three million base pairs of the genome differ in protein encoding and other functional areas.
Brennan: The differences between chimps and humans.
Booth: I'm talking to a four year old, Bones.
Booth: Don't we have some stabbing to do?
Angela: Yes. I hate my job.
Brennan: Committing yourself to one person isn't in the interest of the species. I mean, you have multiple partners.
Angela: Don't say it like that - I date.
Brennan: The notion of a committed relationship, it's fantasy. Look at Booth. Fighting with his ex, his son caught in the middle.
Angela: We make our lives out of chaos and hope. And love. Someday you'll meet somebody.
Brennan: I don't need anything more than what I have now.
Angela: Talk about a fantasy.
Cam: What do you want?
Angela: George Clooney naked on a white sand beach, but I can give you faces, after the skulls are reconstructed.
Cam: Let's just hand the prosecutor what she needs so I can have a nice weekend knocking back shots and playing poker.
Brennan: Yeah, that should motivate us.
Jack: Woo! Seems to be a lot of Gamophyta!
Booth: Is that good?
Jack: I won't know until I compare it to the samples in the lab.
Booth: Then why did you act so excited?
Jack: I guess I just like Gamophyta.
Brennan: When you were sleeping with Kyle, didn't it matter to you that you're destroying a family?
Karen: We were in love.
Brennan: Oh. Love. Sorry, now it's a beautiful story.
