  • Trivia

    • The paper that Bones is holding in the elevator shows the zip code for Washington, D.C. as 20014 when in fact there is no such Zip Code. There is a 20013 and a 20015 however.

    • 175-180 centimeters does not correlate to 5'8-5'9, more like 5'9-5'11.

    • The study that Micah mentions in the bone room with Dr. Brennan seems to be a study from the Journal of Perception entitled "The myth of upright vision. A psychophysical and functional imaging study of adaptation to inverting spectacle." [Journal of Perception, 1999, volume 28, pages 469-481. Linden, David E J, et. al.]

  • Quotes

    • Micah: How'd it work out?
      Brennan: I listened to the universe. I felt something. I'm sad.
      Micah: That's so much better than dead. Or even dead inside.

    • Brennan: What-what else did you learn in that lecture?
      Micah: That there's no such thing as objectivity. That we're all just interpreting signals from the universe, and trying to make sense of them.
      Brennan: Signals from the universe.
      Micah: Dim, shaky, weak, staticky little signals that only hint at the complexity of a universe that we cannot begin to comprehend. But that's what the lecture said anyway.

    • Booth: Bones, what are you doing here?
      Brennan: What are you doing?
      Booth: I don't know; following you to a bad part of town and saving your life. You know, the usual. Your turn.

    • Brennan: How-how come I understand every word you say? Always? I don't have that with anybody else. Sometimes I just hear … noise.
      Micah: Well, I guess I've been here so long, I speak the secret language of the Jeffersonian, hmm?

    • Micah: By the power vested in me by the Jeffersonian Institution, I declare you sleep-deprived. There's a cab waiting to take you home to bed, hmm?
      Brennan: Do you really have that power?
      Micah: I saw this lecture where this New Age guru type said the only power people exert over us is the power we allow them to exert.
      Brennan: Well that's incredibly stupid.
      Micah: I agree. You wave a gun in my face, you got power whether I like it or not.

    • (Brennan has Micah listen to Lauren Eames' voice on the DVD.)
      Brennan: It sounds exactly like my voice. She is me.
      Micah: She isn't you. She's her and you're you. You're alive and she's dead. Ergo, ipso, facto, Colombo, Oreo.
      Brennan: Those last two words, one is the capital of Sri Lanka and the other is … a cookie.
      Micah: (smiles) It sounds like Latin.

    • Hannah: I-I can't imagine going from being a woman to being a mom.
      Booth: When Parker was born, everything changed in my life, everything.
      Hodgins: Like what?
      Angela: Everything. Everything means everything.

    • Brennan: I made a mistake.
      Booth: Nah, I told you my opinion, I mean, you got it right.
      Brennan: Not everything. She died with regrets.
      Booth: Come on, Bones, everybody has regrets.
      Brennan: I heard her, you know? Micah says that all we get are these (she laughs) dim, staticky messages from the universe.
      Booth: Who's this Micah guy?
      Brennan The night watchman, but he attends a lot of lectures. Anyway, the point is … she never gave him a chance.
      Booth: Micah.
      Brennan: No, no, the helicopter pilot. He offered himself to her, but she never gave him a chance. That was her regret. (Booth looks at her aware that she's talking about him) I got the signal, Booth. I don't wanna have any regrets.
      Booth: (Booth takes his time answering) Um, I'm with someone, (Brennan nods in a defeated way) Bones. And, uh, Hannah? She's not a consolation prize. I love her. (Brennan begins sobbing) You know, the last thing I wanna do is hurt you, but those are the facts.
      Brennan: (in tears) I understand. I missed my chance. My whole world turned upside down. I can adjust.
      Booth: I did.
      Brennan: Yes, you did.

  • Allusions

    • Dr. Adit Gadh: "I will show you fear in a handful of dust."
      This is a quotation from T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" Part I. The Burial of the Dead:

      And I will show you something different from either
      Your shadow at morning striding behind you
      Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
      I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
