Special Agent Seeley Booth
Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Goof: When Bones is bending down to look at the memorial for Dylan (about 17 minutes into the episode, without commercials) a microphone is visible in between her breasts.
Goof: In the scene where Brennan and Cam are arguing about what Hodgins should evaluate first, Tamara Taylor (Cam) makes a mistake and says "Kevin Dylans," when in reality the victim's name is "Kevin Duncan."
Goof: When Bones and Booth are sitting in the Diner and Fran Duncan enters, Bones' glass is nearly empty. A few seconds later it cuts back to Bones and her glass is half full.
Goof: After the talk with Kelly's foster mother, Bones and Booth went back to Bones' office. When Bones put her jacket on the back of her chair before she sat down, it fell on the chair. The camera angle changed and the jacket was up on the chair again even though it fell in the previous frame.
Goof: In the first scene shortly after they uncover the body, a fly can be seen crawling directly on the camera lens.
Brennan: Were you lying? Or do you really think Kelly Morris is still alive?
Booth: I don't know.
Brennan: You don't know if she's alive?
Booth: I don't know if I was lying ...
Booth: Do you have a list like Carter?
Brennan: Of foster families that didn't work out? Yeah, we all did. I wrote mine on the bottom of a shoe.
Booth: Oh. You know, they say foster kids, they're really hard on themselves.
Booth: Yeah, experts, psychologists. Apparently foster kids feel so alone in this mean world, they lose that knack of trusting other people.
Brennan: You mean at work?
Booth: Ah, everywhere, you know? The weight of the world, it's profound. They say they have a hard time letting themselves off the hook, they grow up with control issues.
Brennan: Are you telling me something, Booth?
Booth: (nonchalantly) No. Just, you know, something to keep under consideration when we catch up with Kelly Morris.
Booth: If you decide to take some other wisdom out of it, none of my business.
Brennan: How Cam and I get along is none of your business.
Booth: Yeah, right, which I just said, said just then, none of my business.
(Brennan remains thoughtful, pondering his words)
Brennan: You have a read on Dylan Krane?
Booth: Oh, yeah. He had that whole adolescent savior complex thing going on big time.
Brennan: Savior complex?
Booth: Yeah, teenage boys love nothing more than the idea of saving the damsel in distress.
Brennan: How do you know?
Booth: Well, cause, I was, you know, I was a teenage boy.
(Booth and Brennan in his car. Brennan is looking out the window, thoughtful)
Booth: You ok, Bones?
Brennan: I was a foster child.
Booth: Yeah, I know.
Brennan: Do people always assume the worst of me?
Booth: You know, I know that you hate psychology, but those people, they just lost their son. They need to blame someone.
Brennan: Booth told you I was a foster kid, didn't he?
Cam: Ok. Yes, he did. But he did it with a good heart and I'd really appreciate it if you didn't let him know, please.
Brennan: He's gonna know that you told me the second he sees us together.
Cam: It's true. He's awful like that.
Brennan: He reads people the way you read pathology reports or I read bones.
Cam: (looking at the contents of the garbage truck) How much of this are you going to need?
Hodgins: (smiling) The whole disgusting shebang.
Cam: Not many kids from the suburbs end up rotting in garbage trucks, fun factoid from the frontlines.
Cam: (after Hodgins presents the English Alba Rose as evidence) When it comes to bugs, slime, crud, and compost, you're the man.
(at the Botanic Gardens, when they spot Kelly Morris)
Booth: Okay. Go distract her.
Hodgins: Well, hey, why me?
Booth: Well, because apparently I look like a cop.
Hodgins: What do I look like?
Booth: What are you, my straight man? Go!
Hodgins: Flatworms, necrofungus flies and beetles, he's been garbage for about 3 weeks.
Cam: Feeling queasy, Zack?
Zack: I'm not used to bodies looking so much like actual human beings.
Temperance: Dylan made you feel like you weren't alone in this world, right? He was sweet to you, he took so much weight off your shoulders. He was good to Alex, and when Dylan said you'd be together always you believed him.
Kelly: Yes, yes I believed him.
Temperance: And when Suzanne couldn't take care of both you and Alex you had an idea. Run away with Dylan, maybe Suzanne will keep Alex, and everyone will be happy.
Booth: Oh Cam, maybe you just got off on the wrong foot with this case, with Brennan, because she was a foster kid.
Cam: Oh, why didn't she tell me?
Booth: She doesn't do that. Oh by the way I didn't just tell you that.
Cam: Booth, if Dr. Brennan were to quit.
Cam: If she were to leave the Jeffersonian.
Booth: Well, the squints would flee this institution like the French army.
Cam: And you?
Booth: Well, I do as I'm ordered.
Cam: No you don't, Seeley.
Booth: Okay here we go. What's going on Camille?
Cam: What if I fired her? What would you do?
Booth: I'm with Bones, Cam. All the way. Don't doubt it for a second.
Brennan: (to Carter as he runs away) We're not gonna hurt you. (knocks him down) Okay I hurt you a little bit but only because you ran.
Booth: So what do you wanna do next?
Brennan: Hmm. That's up to Cam, isn't it?
Booth: No Bones, I asked you. What do you wanna do?
Brennan: I think... I think we shouldn't close off any avenue of investigation. We stay on all the evidence and see where it leads us, like we did before Cam.
Zack: Case closed?
Dr. Saroyan: On Kevin Duncan definitely, and since Kelly Morris has confessed-
Dr. Brennan: No, she didn't do it.
Dr. Saroyan: What evidence do you have of that?
(Dr. Hodgins walks up carrying a rusty pipe.)
Dr. Hodgins: How about this - specimen 268, right corner of the room schematic.
Angela: You are good!
Dr. Hodgins: Oh, you have no idea. (They smile at each other mischievously, and Zack notices.)
Zack: Are you having a moment?
Dr. Brennan: (exasperated) I can't work like this!
Dr. Saroyan: Are you telling me I should start looking for your replacement?
Angela: Dr. Saroyan, I don't want to be overly dramatic or anything, but if you lose Brennan, you lose us all.
Dr. Saroyan: Really?
Angela: Really, and Booth too.
Angela: It's a strange place for two people in love to end up.
Dr. Hodgins: What, a forensics lab?
Angela: No a squat in an abandoned pipe factory.
Dr. Hodgins: Right, yeah, right...
Angela: What were you talking about?
Dr. Hodgins: (quickly) Just Cam and Booth.
Angela: Oh, right-
Dr. Hodgins: Of course, given their history.
Angela: Hmm... (uncomfortable silence follows, and they look at each other, waiting...)
Dr. Hodgins: Tension, party of two (Angela smiles and exits hastily, Dr. Hodgins continues to himself) great, great, uhhh okay...
Agent Booth: (snaps his fingers) Oxidized iron, what's that?
Dr. Brennan & Dr. Saroyan: (together) Rust.
Agent Booth: Why don't you just say rust? Wha-
Dr. Brennan: (referring to Dr. Saroyan) She said it.
Kelly: (not surprised) Dylan's dead.
Booth: Were you there when Dylan died?
Kelly: Was I there? Who do you think killed him?

"Bring on the Wonder" by Susan Enan ft. Sarah McLachlan (during the end of the episode)
Suzanne Lawler: To feed into their Romeo and Juliet fantasy.
Romeo and Juliet are the famous star-crossed lovers of the eponymous Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. Forced by their families to separate, Juliet conceived a plan to escape so that they could be together, but the plan ended in death and tragedy.
There are seven additional references to Romeo and Juliet in this episode: Hodgins quotes it, Zack identifies the quote, an inscribed copy of the play is at Dylan's shrine, Booth uses it to indicate Kelly & Dylan, Hodgins reveals the fact that the English Alba is suspected by historians of being the "Rose by any other name," and both Booth and Brennan use it when speaking of the rose.
Angela: I call it the "Shroud of Montenegro".
"Shroud of Montenegro" is an allusion to The Shroud of Turin, which is a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man - a man that millions believe to be Jesus of Nazareth.
Agent Booth: The squints would flee the Jeffersonian like the French army.
This is an allusion to the French Revolutionary Army - the military of France during the period between the fall of the ancient regime under Louis XVI in 1792 and the formation of the First French Empire under Napoleon Bonaparte in 1804. In one battle the French Army struck first, but the invasion soon turned into a debacle when it was found that the revolutionary forces were next to useless in combat. Many troops fled the field at the first sign of battle, and in one case even murdered their general to avoid a battle. They were ridiculed for "fleeing" from battle, much like the squints would without Dr. Brennan at their helm.
