Booth: Right now I'm more worried about a safe distance between you and me.
Booth: Why, because we're going to a church, and you tend to get blasphemous in churches.
Brennan: Are you afraid that if God smites me with lightning that you could get hit?
Booth: Yeah, since I would be standing right beside you.
Brennan: The Greek God Zeus also used lightning to incinerate his enemies, although Zeus apparently had better aim than your God.
Booth: Exactly, stuff like that. Just don't say stuff like that.
Booth: You know what it feels like to get your faith back?
Bones: When I see effects and I'm unable to discern the cause, my faith in reason and consequences is shaken.
Booth: Then what happens?
Bones: Two plus two equals four. I put sugar in my coffee and it tastes sweet. The sun comes up because the world turns. These things are beautiful to me. There are mysteries I will never understand, but everywhere I look, I see proof that for every effect there is a corresponding cause, even if I can't see it. I find that reassuring.
Booth: And life is good again.
Bones: Life is very good.
Booth: Yes, it is.
Cam: (about Arastoo) Do you want to work with someone who thinks you're the Great Satan?
Hodgins: No, I don't want to be the Great Satan. I don't even want to be a minor demon. Want me to talk to him?
Cam: Yes, but unfortunately, dopey interpersonal crap falls under my job description.
Brennan: (about the body with the horns) Preliminary findings, Mr. Vaziri?
Arastoo: Victim is human, mostly.
Cam: Oh, he's only half joking.
Dr. Copeland: I've listened to you take shots at my profession and, that's okay. I'm a big boy, a tolerant man, but I want you to think about something. I spend, every working hour of every day trying to help people who are living in Hell. That's an honorable way to spend a life. Perhaps more honorable than figuring out what happened to dead people who are already beyond pain and suffering.
Bones: Intentions, however misguided, do count. I understand that.
Dr. Copeland: I hope you won't think I'm too picky when I point out that that wasn't an actual apology. But perhaps it's the best you can manage.
Angela: I got an I.D. on our victim.
Cam: Is his last name Lucifer?
Hodgins: Can we please call him Hellboy until we find out otherwise?
Angela: Well, we found out otherwise. (shows a computer image of the victim) Neil Lowery. Turns out Neil is the only missing guy with horns. Heh. Go figure.
Bones: Where was his last known residence?
Arastoo: I'm guessing Mr. Stephen King's basement.
Booth: (interrogating Lloyd) Why don't we start with the dorky martial arts stuff.
Lloyd Robertson: Hey, nunchucks and shuriken aren't dorky, alright? They're weapons of a true master.
Booth: You see, the fact that you just called it shuriken proves my dorky theory.
Hodgins: The accelerant was common motor oil, available at any gas station.
Cam: Well at least it wasn't brimstone, available only from Hell.
Booth: I brought Sweets along so you know, he can sift through all the crazy-asses at the looney bin to see if any of them are homicidal.
Sweets: I'm an excellent loony bin crazy-ass sifter.
Booth: What's going on here, are we going the right way?
Brennan: Yes, all I had to say was (raises voice) 'Saint Dominic's Roman Catholic Church' into the, voice-activated GPS.
Booth: (loudly) Car, could you please get us there a little faster?
Brennan: No, the accelerator is not voice-activated, it's foot-activated, like a normal car.
Booth: Okay. (smiles)
Brennan: Oh, (laughs) you're joking.
Bones: That's funny.

This episode was touted as the season's "Winter Finale" by Fox, since repeats aired for several weeks afterwards (in part due to the Winter Olympics).
Booth: What do you say we just get Hellboy wrapped up and back to the Jeffersonian?
Booth is referring to the red-skinned demon with filed-down horns and the "Right Hand of Doom" comic superhero created by Mike Mignola. The character made the leap to film in Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008).
Arastoo: I'm guessing Mr. Stephen King's basement.
Arastoo makes this comment because Stephen King is a famous horror writer. He has written such well-known novels as Carrie, The Dead Zone, and The Shining.
Cam: Well I just don't want to end up hovering above my bed with my head spinning around 360 degrees.
Cam is referring to the famous 1973 Linda Blair movie The Exorcist, in which Blair's character, a young girl named Regan, gets possessed by a demon. At one point in the movie the demon-possessed Regan hovers above her bed, while in another scene her head spins around.
