    • Caroline: You want to take on a private army with an FBI tac squad?
      Flynn: Yeah.
      Booth: Yes.
      Caroline: You come up empty, and I will not be there to cover your sorry asses on account of I'll be too busy covering my own, understood?
      Booth: I'll take that chance.
      Flynn: Great.
      Caroline: Okay, then. Suit up.

    • Booth: Come on, Caroline. It's just a piece of paper.
      Caroline: You think I can just foxtrot into a judge's chambers with my winning smile and girlish figure and get whatever I want? I appreciate the compliment, cherie, but it doesn't work that way.
      Booth: You know what? You don't want to help? Fine. You can just foxtrot out of here.

    • Cam: Given the time and resources we have, I have to go with what has the highest probability of—
      Hodgins: If it's about resources, just tell me how much you need me to give you.
      Cam: Money isn't the issue.
      Hodgins: Please. Money is always the issue. It's a good thing that I'm rich. Half the funding for the Jeffersonian comes from the Cantilever Group.
      Cam: We have to stay focused on what's important.
      Hodgins: He was in my bedroom. He threatened my wife, my child. Nothing is more important than that.

    • Hodgins: The game has changed, Booth. Pelant is targeting us, directly. We have to hit him back now, before one of us is dead.
      Angela: Pelant touched our son. Isn't there a way to just get rid of him?
      Brennan: Morally, I have no problem with killing a killer, but Booth is the only one of us who has the skills and the training to do it. The burden would fall on him. The decision needs to be his.
      Hodgins: How many kills do you have?
      Booth: My kills were battlefield decisions, all right? They were green-lit from above. There is a chain of command.
      Hodgins: Did any deserve to die more than Pelant?
      Booth: We stay in the system. In lockdown, but in the system. That's final.
