  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Booth: I'm just saying, life is a lot more than what you cook up in your chemistry sets. Miracles do happen.
      Bones: Well, religious visions are nothing but pareidolia, random stimulus being perceived as as significant.
      Booth: Yeah? Did you ever hear of the Shroud of Turin, Dr. Burn-in-Hell?

    • Angela: That's a tire tread.
      Wendell: She was run over by a car.
      Cam: Seems like our victim was flattened before she was flattened.

    • Bones: Love is a chemical process which causes delusion. An intellectually rigorous person would never get married!
      Booth: Never say never.
      Bones: That's a paradox, makes no sense.
      Dr. Marcus Scheer: Am I still needed here? Because if you two are having relationship issues, I can ...
      Bones: We're not a couple.
      Booth: No, we just work together. That's all.

    • Bones: You know, intellectually, I know that jealousy is absurd. But I see that it's real for people. I even experience it myself.
      Booth: So uh, who you jealous of?
      Bones: Angela, Hodgins, Cam, you. Because you all want to lose yourself in another person. You believe that love is transcendent and eternal. I want to believe that too.
      Booth: Hey, you will. I promise. Someday, you will. You will, some day. Okay?
      Bones: Okay.

    • Booth: Look Bones, you can't go around tellin' everybody what's on your mind even though it's the truth, okay? Look, what if you and I were going out, right? And you were, y'know, taking forever to get ready and you came out in this dress and, I told you I didn't like it, what are you gonna do?
      Bones: I'd reevaluate, change, or ignore you.
      Booth: (sarcastically) Of course you would, Bones. Good answer.

    • Booth: Marriage has been around since the beginning of time.
      Bones: Women from Amazonian tribes express their love by spitting on their partners' faces. I hope we've progressed passed that.
      Booth: Okay well you know what, sometimes love trumps logic.
