  • Quotes

    • Sweets: (about Michelle's forged application) Did you consider the person that didn't get in because you cheated?
      Cam: All right! I'm a terrible person. I stipulate to that. But that's not why I'm here.
      Sweets: (amazed) You're kidding.
      Cam: What I need is your advice on how to tell Michelle that she has the option of going to one of the best universities in the world.
      Sweets: Unfairly and illegitimately.
      Cam: I'd rather not put it to her that way.
      Sweets: I can't help you.
      Cam: Why not? Some sort of professional code of ethics?
      Sweets: No, my own personal code of ethics. You should consider putting one together of your own.

    • Dr. Filmore: So, does everybody who works with Dr. Brennan end up in therapy?
      Dr. Sweets: If it's any consolation, she spent three years degrading the entire field of psychology and essentially dismissing my life's work as a foolish waste of time.

    • Dr. Filmore: Confrontation's not a natural state for me. I'm … Canadian.
      Dr. Sweets: Canadian, or afraid?

    • (Brennan pulls a foot from the river bank.)
      Brennan: Based on the size, this belonged to an adult male.
      Booth: Hmm.
      Brennan: Given the range of motion of the metatarsophalangeal joint, I'd say he was somewhere between 18 and 50.
      Booth: Great. That narrows it down to about 50 million people.

    • Booth: But, you know, you really should apologize to him.
      Brennan: I already explained—
      Booth: I know you did, but come on, Bones, he's hurting. All right? Whether you're right or wrong, you leveled the guy.
      Brennan: He's a grown man.
      Booth: Sometimes that makes it hurt more. What makes us human, Bones, is that we can feel compassion and regret.
      Brennan: Why is it so important to you, Booth?
      Booth: Because I know the kind of person that you are, and I think you should let other people in on the secret, too. Right?

    • Sweets: (amazed) You forged Michelle's application and applied to Columbia?
      Cam: Could you not say that as though I'd killed three people?

    • Booth: Sometimes, wouldn't you just like to be a person like the rest of us instead of someone who just paralyzes people?
      Brennan: Those of us who tell the truth have always endured harsh judgment—Copernicus, Galileo. I accept that as something I have to deal with.
