Episode Summary

EDIT

Booth and Brennan investigate the murder of a sperm donor, but lies he told increase the suspect pool exponentially. Back at the lab, Hodgins discovers unknown nurturing instincts when one of his specimens finds unusual lodging. Elsewhere, Brennan attempts to dampen her blunt side in favor of playing the publicity game when she is challenged by another author.

  • Wedding Rings

    Two episodes away they finally got married and it was such a meanful thing to Booth all the time. Why aren't they wearing their wedding rings now?? Little details matters!

  • Not good, Not good.

    Ok I have been thinking this whole season, what in the world. I know now that my beloved show has jumped the episode was just beyond words. That whole bot fly thing was gross and disgusting. It was not good, not good. What have the writers done to this show. I really think that Bones is seeing it's last season.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Hodgins: Uh, Wendell? Um... Truthfully, Angie is a little unsupportive of me being a bot fly surrogate.
      Wendell: What a shock.
      Hodgins: So I was wondering if you wouldn't mind being with me when the little guy comes out?
      Wendell: You want me to be your midwife?
      Hodgins: I was thinking more like birthing partner.
      Wendell: I'm going insane. (walks away)
      Hodgins: Oh, also, uh... if you wouldn't mind taking a video of the big event?

    • Angela: You've been letting a fly grow in your neck for the last month?
      Hodgins: Yeah. Angie, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, you know? I mean, serving as host for one of Mother Nature's miracles.
      Angela: Okay, we are going to Cam right now, and she is cutting that thing out of your neck.
      Hodgins: How many men can claim they have given birth?
      Angela: You're not actually comparing this to carrying a child, are you?
      Hodgins: Well, no. No, of course not, but... (shows her an ultrasound image) You got to admit he's pretty cute, right? And looking at my neck, I think he actually might come out soon.
      Angela: You're insane.

    • Brennan: Have either of you read Tess Brown's books?
      Cam: No. I've heard she's terrible.
      Wendell: Bitch. That's maybe a little harsh. But why read her when I can read you?
      Brennan: Very true.

    • Brennan: I may have lost my temper just now, but I do consider myself to be a very tactful person.
      Booth: Mm-hmm.
      Brennan: That's an attractive tie. You don't even notice the milk stain on it.
      Booth: (sarcastically) Very tactful. Very tactful, Bones.
      Brennan: I thought so.
