Season 6 Episode 4

The Body and the Bounty

Aired Tuesday 9:00 PM Oct 14, 2010 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • In the video of the bounty hunter and the bondsman, the supposed rib-breaking incident is shown. However, the jab with the pool cue and subsequent clutching of the injury is far lower than the fourth rib. As is shown in the episode, the fourth rib is up near the heart. The injury shown in the video appears to be to the stomach area (9th rib or lower).

    • Goof: While Sweets, Booth and Julian watch the video where the bounty hunter gets hurt, Julian mentions that the bail bondsman is terminal because he has cancer and that the diagnosis is not good. What she should have said is the prognosis is not good, since what she means is that he has little time to live–not that he was misdiagnosed.

    • Goof: Tutti the cadaver dog made his first appearance in Season One, "The Man in the Wall." However, the dog in that episode had a light brown coat and was indicated to be male. In this episode, Tutti is said to be female and has a black coat, yet it is hinted that this is the same Tutti.

    • The character Bunsen Jude is likely based on Bill Nye the Science Guy, who hosted a children's show of the same name about science.

    • "The Lab" sign behind Professor Bunsen Jude is the same signs used in the season four finale "The End in the Beginning" inside the nightclub that Bren and Mr. B (Booth) owned called The Lab.

  • Quotes

    • Brennan: (Seriously) Well, it was an accident. The rib fragment broke off in the pool hall. (to killer) You had no idea that your beanbag gun would kill him.
      Booth: (confused) Bones… what are you… a defense lawyer now?
      Brennan: Well, a kind mind is a fine mind.
      Booth: (incredulous) She cut off his head! That wasn't an accident.
      Brennan: I have no rebuttal to that statement.

    • Brennan: Well, killed him dead, is redundant.
      Professor Jude: But it's clear, and what do we say about clarity? It's a barbarity that clarity is a rarity.
      Brennan: (smiles) That's very true.

    • Angela: You have to go on the Dude's kiddie show.
      Brennan: No, I don't. Why?
      Angela: Because … it's the dream of every kid in this country who likes science even a little bit.
      Brennan: Well, I'm not a kid, I'm a fully-grown adult.

    • Angela: If I have a daughter, I'm going to name her Temperance.
      Brennan: You are?
      Angela: I mean, we won't call her that; it's awful. Maybe it'll be her middle name, but … I want her to love you.
      Brennan: But you love me.
      Angela: Yes, but not everyone is as willing to look as hard for your inner child as I am. And this kid is half Hodgins, remember.

    • Booth: (discussing a mark on a bone) The victim definitely had a thing for big guns.
      Brennan: The evidence is consistent with your theory.
      Booth: That's right, see, "'cause I always get my man."
      Brennan: (seriously) I am a woman.
