The Hole in the Heart

  • Trivia

    • When Bones is showing Vincent how the victim sustained his injuries by physical example she says, "You are Mr. Leishenger and I am his attacker. Broadsky is an expert in close quarter combat." Vincent then replies, "I assume that I will be dead very soon then." This is clearly a subtle foreshadow of what is to come later on in the episode.

    • When Brennan recalls that Vincent's favorite song was "Da Lime in Da Coconut", Sweets's response is "Seriously? Because that's my jam." In the episode "The Body in the Bag," Sweets is shown working out to this song on his headphones. He also mentions in "The Passenger in the Oven" that he's going to sing it for karaoke.

    • When Brennan goes into Booth's room in the middle of the night the clock shows it is 4:47, this is the exact same time shown on the clock next to Booth's bed in the first scene of the 4th season finale, "The End in the Beginning." This is also the time that the clock in the victim's apartment continuously flashes in "The Beginning in the End."

  • Quotes

    • Hodgins: You know, Vincent gave me a great piece of advice? He said, "The busiest shopping hour in the entire year is between 3:00 and 4:00 on Christmas Eve." So, I never shop during that time.
      Sweets: Oh, he told me that Quebec City in Canada has the same amount of street crime as Disney World. So, safe place to visit.
      Cam: Vincent informed me that the crack of a whip was actually the tip breaking the sound barrier.
      Angela: He told me that the top of the Eiffel Tower is actually six inches shorter in the winter time. So, it's better to climb it then.
      Brennan: Vincent's favorite song was "Da Lime in Da Coconut".
      Sweets?: Seriously? 'Cause that's like … that's my jam.
      (The team breaks out into singing "Da Lime in Da Coconut" as they load Vincent Nigel-Murray's remains into a hearse.)

    • (The T. rex contraption hits a snafu in the first man-dinosaur contest.)
      Hodgins: Yes! That is one for humanity and zero for the tyrant lizard!

    • Broadsky: You really so damn positive you're the good guy in this?
      Booth: Yeah. Positive as you are. Difference is, I'm right.

    • Booth: Uh, how are you feeling?
      Angela: Oh, boy, like an overstuffed turkey shoved into the overhead bin of an overcrowded flight.

    • Broadsky: Do the math, Seeley. I'm doing good work.
      Booth: You kill people. No judge, no jury. Just you making the call.
      Broadsky: My conscience is clear. And since you're trying to stop me, you're playing for the wrong team.
      Booth: Oh, you threatening me now?
      Broadsky: Self-defense, Seeley. Sometimes, that means a very aggressive offense.
      Booth: You forget who you're dealing with, Jacob?
      Broadsky: Not for a moment. And don't you forget, you never see the bullet that takes you down.
