Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Dr. Lance Sweets
Special Agent Seeley Booth
Dr. Temperance Brennan
Near the beginning of the episode Brennan identifies the victim as a 23-year-old male. However, later in the episode Brennan says his birthday was 11-05-89, which would have made him only 19 years old at the time.
Sheriff Tina Mullins: They had a cannon, more like a blunderbuss really. Filled to the brim with bric-a-brac and shrapnel.
Bones and her team continue to use the name "blunderbuss" back at the lab, which is incorrect. A blunderbuss is a hand-held shotgun-type weapon. What was used was clearly a cannon. Also, depending upon the amount and type of powder used, the items put in the cannon (screws, nails, and so on) could have carried on for a mile and would have been a danger to anyone in the field.
Bones: What are we looking for this time?
Booth: I don't know. Fur, gray hair ... Anything that's gonna help us identify Beaver's cougar.
Bones: Beaver, otter, cougar ... This case is like a day at the zoo.
Booth: Bones, when I was in college, my frat, we stole a cadaver, dressed it up like Caesar and put it on a statue of a horse.
Bones: Would this by any chance be a fraternity of sociopaths?
Arastoo Vaziri: (discussing evidence with Brennan and Booth) I examined the nails very carefully for marks that would confirm it was shot from a nail gun. (to Booth) A nail gun leaves distinctive marks. Not from the hammering mechanism, you understand, but from the reloading mechanism.
Booth: Why are you telling me this?
Arastoo Vaziri: Dr. Brennan said to be especially polite to you when the science was difficult.
Booth: How stupid do you people think I am?!
Booth: I'm Jared's older brother, you know, he should listen to me.
Brennan: I could provide you with several societies where younger brothers are required under threat of death to do what their older brothers tell them.
Booth: I like those societies.
Brennan: Well, they're mostly extinct now.
Cam: Mr. Vaziri, do you have the x-rays?
Arastoo Vaziri: Yes, I have never seen so many foreign objects in human remains: arrows, marbles, jack, various coins, cutlery. My best guess is a nuclear explosion occurred just as the victim entered a 99¢ Store.
Angela: Well, uh, close. He was shot by a blunderbuss, pelted by an angry mob, and then burned.
Cam: Now that's what I call team spirit. (Angela and Arastoo give her awkward grins) I'm a wise-cracking pathologist with a dark sense of humor.
Molly Briggs: Me and Beaver? Sexually? Do I look like a blow-up doll?
Hodgins: (doing an experiment with Arastoo Vaziri) Coccyx test number one, Dr. Jack Hodgins supervising.
Cam: No. No no no.
Cam: Stop. This is an unnecessary experiment. The height of the fall can be calculated mathematically.
Arastoo Vaziri: Th-that is true. But I decided to humor Dr. Hodgins so we could bond over a project.
Cam: Why do you need to bond?
Arastoo Vaziri: He mistrusts Muslims.
Cam: Go, grab a beer together, but I am saying "no" to this experiment.
Hodgins: Yeah, I got that during the part where you said "no" seven times in a row.
Cam: I find that you don't pay attention to the first six.
Cam: Professor Twardosh was not Beaver's sex partner.
Booth: Okay, did anyone think that? Honestly. Because, I did not.
Brennan: Booth believes that the cringe factor was too high, even though cringe factor is not a valid mathematical construct.
Booth: Believe me, it is.
