Sheriff Becky Conway
Goof: Booth and Brennan don't let Officer Conway in on their undercover plot, yet they talk to her during the class reunion, which could easily reveal their true identities. That is unless they just expect Conway to know they're going undercover, which doesn't make much sense.
Back in the Season 3 episode "Boy in the Time Capsule" Brennan mentions that she had a crush on Andy Pfleuger (the shop teacher) back in high school when he was the varsity lacrosse captain. He was Brennan's Secret Santa, and taped a Brainy Smurf to her locker as her gift -- when he knew she had wanted Smurfette -- just to be cruel.
Booth: Look, you gotta go to your reunion, Bones. We already flew all the way out here.
Brennan: I'm not going. High school was not a happy time. For some reason, people didn't seem to like me.
Booth: Which is exactly why you have to go now. Reunions are made for you to smear your success into people's faces. Your accomplishments are gonna kill 'em.
Booth: Look, they didn't dislike you, Bones. They just didn't understand you. It's a big difference.
Bones: It didn't bother me. I, found the reunion to be quite educational ... and you were right. It was good to go back. It made me see how lucky I am ... now. (to Angela, Booth, Cam, Wendell, Hodgins, and Sweets) This is what friendship looks like, this table. I am very lucky.
Booth: Since uh, Bones was already invited to the reunion, we get more information if she is seen as an alumni.
Sweets: Alumna. Yes.
Booth: Yeah, great. You know, correcting my Latin, not the best way to make friends.
Booth: (as metal stars descend from the ceiling) That is so cool. ... Bones you're tearing up.
Brennan: This is the prom I never, got to go to.
Bones: (dancing with Booth) Why are you so far away?
Booth: You know, just keeping room for the Holy Spirit, that's all.
Angela: You're sexy and, smart and ... good. You're like saint good.
Wendell: Oh I'm a sexy saint.
Bones: Whatever blade was used, left very clean and precise cuts.
Cam: It's always a tad creepy when you admire the killer's handiwork.
Hodgins: You okay?
Angela: Yeah. Yes, I am. As you know I have some experience in this area.
(They look at each other.)
Angela: I'd- I'd like to know if Wendell is alright.
Hodgins: He's doing much better than I did after we broke up.
Angela: Well I don't want to be the kind of person who leaves this, string of good-hearted guys behind her, you know?
Hodgins: Ange, we broke up, you know? You did not dump me, and Wendell is fine. And I gotta tell you, I think, I think you left him in- in better shape than you found him.
Angela: I don't know about that, I mean, I'm pretty sure he was born that way.
Hodgins: Still, he is better for having known you, Angela.
Angela: How can you be sure?
Hodgins: Because I've been there.
Hodgins: It's none of my business if you broke up with Angela.
Wendell: It's your business because we're friends and it's kind of a big deal for me.
Hodgins: Oh. Yeah, right, uh, I'm sorry, of course. You know what? You- you need to, you need to go out, and get drunk you know? Pick a fight, steal a car. Come on, I got your back.
Wendell: What I need is for you to know that I did my best concerning Angela.
Hodgins: Yeah, I know that already.
Wendell: I haven't told you about it.
Hodgins: You don't have to. I know you.
Officer Conway: Brad was always the golden boy. He always, got what he wanted. Rumor is, his business isn't doing very good.
Brennan: Booth, you- you can't give this credence. It's gossip, which by definition it's a form of entertainment not information. And, her grammar is appalling.
Officer Conway: It is a miracle that you have any life whatsoever.
Brennan: You cheated off my test in chemistry.
Officer Conway (to Booth): I could supply you a little fun while you're here 'cause you're probably dying with this one.
Hodgins: After much effort and expertise, I found -- calcium sulfate and flecks of grade 3003 H14 Aluminum.
Wendell: How are either of those in any way cooler than discovering a saw, hm?
Cam: I'll let Dr. Brennan know that we are looking for a saw which can cut through metal. And you don't have to fight, you both did well. (to herself as she leaves the room) I run a kindergarden.
Hodgins: You know you get very bossy when you don't have flesh to play with?
Cam: I am the boss.
Brennan: We know each other. Becky, right? I'm- I'm Temperance.
Officer Conway: Have I arrested you before, hon?
Brennan: N- you were my lab partner in chemistry in Burtonsville High.
Officer Conway: Are you absolutely sure? I have an excellent memory.
Brennan: Positive. Though, you are thinner now which is better for your cardiovascular system. In high school you were quite overweight, hence the derision from the other students.
Officer Conway: Yeah, I remember you now. The creepy girl.

Officer Conway: (to Bones) Don't need the details, Morticia.
Officier Conway is of course referring to Morticia Addams of the Addams Family. The Addams Family is a series of cartoons, created by Charles Addams, about a family who lives a ghastly, Gothic lifestyle and dislikes most things normal people like. The Addams Family has been transformed into various other forms of media throughout the years, including several TV series (live-action and animated) and movies. In addition to Officer Conway's comment, Booth also at one point directly calls Bones "Wednesday Addams."
Dr. Sweets: Lives alone, low-status job, obsession with gruesome crime stories, surrounded by teenage girls. Very creepy. It's like Freddy-creepy.
This is a reference to the horror movie character Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Robert Englund, who plays janitor Ray Buxley in this episode, portrayed Freddy from the original 1984 movie, and up until 2003's Freddy Vs. Jason. Trailers for the upcoming remake of the original movie (with the character of Freddy now portrayed by Jakie Earl Haley) were shown during this episode.
