    Cam and Arastoo. WOW, didn't see that coming! It's really sweet that they're trying to keep it secret.
  • Great case, perfect romance

    I really liked the Arrastoo and Cam story- I thought it was so sweet and adorable. I hope they have more scenes together! As always loved the B's scenes together- they just work. Bones should never change- she is perfect! Less Sweets maybe- I don't hate him however he's a lot better in small doses centered more in the FBI building....I've always been neutral about Angela but she is married to Hodgins whom I absolutely adore so as long as he's in the scene I'm not complaining !!!!!!!!!!!! Oh right the case...goooooo Bones she is nerdy badass at it's best! :)moreless
  • almost perfect

    9.5
    Finally a decent episode, only one thing wasn't perfect: The last scene belongs to B&B :-) Anyway there was nice chemistry in the episode and the psychobubble thing with Sweets was fun and not weird like in the last episodes. Perhaps Bones is back on track.
  • Loved the case, and most of the romance

    I loved the case...great flow and Brennan's gotcha at the end was priceless. Loved the last scene with B&B ("I know exactly why I love you"). Not entirely sold on Arastoo/Cam but I like the thought better than Clark/Cam. A little too much Hodgela for me, but I get that they usually don't get enough screen time, so I'll take my lumps. And seeing Brennan and Booth team up on Sweets made his living with them worth itmoreless

    • Arastoo: I know you want to keep this a secret.
      Cam: Oh, Arastoo, I don't want to keep this a secret at all.
      Arastoo: Except from all the other interns.
      Cam: Definitely.
      Arastoo: And everyone who works at the Jeffersonian.
      Cam: Damn straight.
      Arastoo: You want me to quit?
      Cam: And live with that guilt? Oh, no, thanks.
      Arastoo: So to sum it up, you want to tell everyone, but you don't want anyone to know.
      Cam: Yes. Crazy, right?
      Arastoo: It's poetic.

    • Brennan: Now you give me three of your top reasons for loving me.
      Booth: I don't have reasons. What?
      Brennan: I think what you just said is very romantic.
      Booth: What can I say? I'm a romantic, Bones.

    • Brennan: It's ironic that while all we care about is preserving evidence, their job is to wipe it out of existence.
      Hodgins: Like some kind of primeval struggle between us and them.

    • Cam: Dr. Brennan, do you think Melvin Carville is our killer?
      Brennan: Yes.
      Cam: Based on … ? Seriously? You're working a hunch here?
      Brennan: Melvin Carville told Sweets specifically to tell me personally where to look for blood.
      Hodgins: Like a challenge?
      Brennan: Yes.
      Cam: Oh, you are most definitely working a hunch.

    • Sweets: (about his own place) I am looking actively. Without fear, I'm looking, all right? It's just … it's just difficult right now.
      Booth: Very defensive.
      Sweets: I'm not defensive.
      Brennan: It's natural. We understand.
      Sweets: Can we please just talk about the case?
      Brennan: Okay, what Sweets just did there that is called deflecting.
      Sweets: I'm not deflecting, either.
      Booth: It sounds like deflecting.
      Brennan: (laughs) I enjoy psychology.

    • Angela: You, uh … you didn't tell me you were seeing someone.
      Cam: Oh, I am. I just don't like to bring my personal life into work.
      Angela: Oh … so you still haven't slept together?
      Cam: That would be talking about it.
      Angela: Come on, Cam. I'm not going to tell anybody.
      Cam: Working.
      Angela: You're no fun.
      Cam: That's not what he says.
      Angela: (smirks) Nice.

    • Brennan: Based on angular eye orbits and a large mastoid process, the decedent is male.
      Hodgins: Human?
      Booth: Really?
      Hodgins: Just being thorough.

    • Hodgins: At first, I thought pod people.
      Booth: (sarcastically) Of course you did.
      Hodgins: Hey, there are still a lot of questions remaining about the events at Area 51, you know. Do you know that UFO spottings–
      Booth: Let's just keep it close to Earth here, bug boy. Okay? Just simplify the investigation.
