Goof: When Booth is inside the bar at his birthday party he's wearing white running shoes, but when he's outside with his brother, he's wearing brown shoes.
In this episode, the Scotland Yard mascot Booth brought back from London (back in the fourth season premiere - "Yanks in the U.K.") can be seen on his desk.
We learn in this episode that Booth's father was an alcoholic, and his younger brother Jared also seems to have problems with alcohol.
Jared: There is nothing worse than somebody who always thinks they're right, and then they're right. Right?
Booth: Well, since you were last here, Angela ran into her ex-girlfriend, who is now her ex-ex-girlfriend.
Clark: Well, the only ex I care about are X-rays.
Brennan: I would like to propose a toast, to my partner, Seeley Booth.
Everyone: To Booth!
Brennan: I know who he is, but I forget sometimes, because ... because he never shines the light on himself. He shines it on other people.
Booth: Yeah, right after I conked 'em on the head with it.
Brennan: Anthropology teaches us that the Alpha male is the man wearing the crown, displaying the most colorful plumage, and the shiniest baubles, he stands out from the others. But I now think that anthropology may have it wrong. In working with Booth, I have come to realize that the quiet man -- the invisible man, that man who is always there for friends and family -- that's the real Alpha male. And I promise that my eyes will never be caught by those shiny baubles again. Happy Birthday.
Bones: (to Jared Booth, about Seeley) You took advantage of him. You know, you made me think that he's a loser. And what really makes me angry is that I believed you! I wouldn't blame Booth if he never talked to me again. You're the loser!
(Brennan pulls Booth aside)
Booth: Ugh Bones, alright what are we doing?
Brennan: Look, come here.
Brennan: Just come here for a second. What you're doing for your brother ... isn't fair.
Booth: C'mon Bones. Don't get me mad, at you after that great speech alright? Not after I got you shot.
Brennan: You didn't get me shot. I got me shot.
Booth: I don't want to talk about my brother.
Brennan: Would you prefer Sweets do it? (Booth looks over at Sweets, and they make eye contact)
Booth: I'm listening.
Brennan: Well I forgot all the psychological stuff, but basically, when you rescue somebody all the time, if you keep, getting them out on bail ...
Booth: Bail them out Bones, if you bail them out.
Brennan: You're thwarting their ability to help themselves. (Booth makes a growl) Now you're angry.
Booth: C'mon Bones, you have to admit. Getting a psychological lesson from you is like ...
Brennan: Getting an anthropology lesson from you?
Police Instructor: (after a body is flung from an exploding trailer and lands on a car's windshield) We're gonna need uh, um uh ... a fire extinguisher ... and then, maybe some sort of trauma counselor.
Brennan: What did you find?
Clark: It's what I didn't find that's interesting. (Clark looks at Brennan, who's dressed up)
Clark: (murmurs) You have got to be kidding me.
Clark: Oh nothing, nothing, nothing Dr. Brennan, I just uh didn't know that you were so ... uh ...
Jared Booth: (talking about Seeley) He doesn't like to be visible above the ridge line, so he keeps his head low. Instinct. Me on the other hand, well ... I cannot help but run that ridge.
Brennan: Can you give me an example? (Jared kisses Brennan)
Jared: I bet ya Seeley never took that risk.
Brennan: (smiles) Nope.
Brennan: (walking in, after receiving a phone call from Cam, asking to meet her at the Jeffersonian) Hello.
Cam: Dr. Brennan, I ... don't want you to think this is an intervention.
Brennan: I, don't know what that means.
Sweets: An intervention is when a group of loved ones bands together to help, one of their own make a difficult decision.
Cam: Oh! Then ... then it is an intervention.
Brennan: (confused) Are you my loved ones?
Brennan: We're all scientists here, right? Well, (points to Sweets) not you. What is your evidence?
Brennan: Are you thinking of leaving lesbianism behind?
Angela: I prefer not to be labeled, okay?
Brennan: It is nice to meet you Jarhead. I can see the family resemblance. Your ... facial structure is, even more symmetrical than Booth's.
Jared: Is she coming on to me?
Booth: No it's just the way she talks.
Brennan: People make stupid, irrational decisions.
Booth: They act from the heart sometimes Bones, it's not a crime.
Cam: Can I ... offer you a little insight into Booth's little brother?
Clark: Oh God, why am I always standing precisely in the wrong place?
Brennan: I didn't have sex with him Cam.
Angela: (walking in) Didn't have sex with who?
Cam: Jared Booth.
Brennan: Why good?
Cam: Because. Because ...
Angela: Because he's Booth's little brother, and it would just be a creepy way to have sex with a Booth without having sex with the real Booth.
Cam: Kudos, Angela, I would not have had the guts to say that aloud.
Brennan: Jared is a real Booth.
Cam: Hmmm ...
Angela: Jared's Booth-lite. Booth is the real Booth.
Brennan: Well what if Booth is Booth-lite?
Brennan: What happened with your RICO bust?
Booth: Nothing, why? Have you been talking to Cam?
Brennan: No. Did you do something wrong?
Booth: What do you mean?
Brennan: Well, you didn't get the credit you deserve. What did you do?
Booth: Life is not always about credit.
Brennan: Well, that is not what you said before. You said life was all about credit, and you're going to Hawaii, and they're going to put you on a coin ...
Booth: You know what? Let's just forget about it, okay, Bones? Forget about it.
Brennan: Jared warned me that you tend to sabotage yourself.
Booth: Jared said that?
Brennan: Mhm. He said that you're afraid of success.
Booth: Hmm. So basically I'm a loser.
Brennan: No. He never said the word loser.
Booth: Do you think I'm a loser? Like that guy in there? Some clown in some dumb-ass uniform who basically can't do any better? Is that what you think?
Brennan: Well, anthropologically, males tend to rank themselves into a hierarchy. There's no shame in not being at the top of the hierarchy.
Booth: You're not answering the question Bones. Answer, my question. (Booth's phone rings)
Booth: Jared, this here is my partner Dr. Temperance Brennan, and that, back there (points at Edison) is a squint.
Hodgins: (looking through papers with Angela) So, these are from the notebook found in our victim's windbreaker?
Angela: Blueprints, schematics, sketches ...
Hodgins: "Automatic toilet scrubber." Huh. Like those little vacuum cleaners that move around on their own.
Angela: Things in a toilet bowl should not move.
