  • Trivia

    • Joseph is Seeley Booth's middle name.

    • Angela changed the name her father gave her (which was "Mouse") because she hated it. (In season three she said that she legally changed her name on her 18th birthday after the name 'Angela Montenegro' came to her in a dream.)

  • Quotes

    • Booth: (at the murder site) Why are you here?
      Caroline: Dead guy, and the fact that they've recovered over a $150,000 so far. Stuff like that makes a Federal Prosecutor like me all tingly.

    • Caroline: [Broadsky] was in your apartment?
      Booth: Yes.
      Caroline: Why didn't you, I don't know, jump up and judo/karate/kung fu the man?

    • Hodgins: You like that I stood up to you.
      Billy Gibbons: You don't seem to be doing any kinda standin' up at the moment.

    • Brennan: (to Booth while on the phone with Caroline) Caroline is asking if we see anything.
      Booth: The answer's still no, and tell her to stop asking.
      Brennan: (to Caroline) Booth says, "Stop asking."
      Caroline: I don't wait well. I'm an action person. Waiting makes my teeth hurt.
      Brennan: (to Booth) Her teeth hurt.

    • Hodgins: These are the bills found with the victim's body.
      Booth: All hundreds, right?
      Hodgins: Yes, but guess what I found on them?
      Booth: Blood, on account that he was shot to death with a high-powered rifle?
      Hodgins: Yes, blood, of course blood. But guess what else I found.
      Booth: Does this look like a guessing face?

    • Vincent: Please tell me that this meat is not human.
      Brennan: No, it's venison. We found it frozen in the suicide victim's cabin freezer.
      Vincent: I'm confused. Are we investigating a murder, or preparing lunch for the Palin family?

    • Hodgins: So the name that came to you?
      Billy Gibbons: It could work for either a boy or a girl, that's the beauty part.
      Hodgins: Great.
      Billy Gibbons: Staccato Mamba.
      Hodgins: Staccato Mamba? Yeah, I-I didn't see that one coming

    • Booth: (to Broadsky) Jacob. Welcome to my home. Can I get you anything?

    • Bones: How-how can I put this in a way that you will understand?
      Booth: Why don't you try and say it in teeny tiny words?
      Bones: Oh, okay. (slowly and deliberately) Broadsky is bad. You... are good. That's as simply as I can put it.
      Booth: All right. You don't believe in absolutes like good or bad. All right? You think it's where people stand.
      Bones: From where I stand, you are good, and Broadsky's bad.

    • Winkler: In my line of work, discretion is paramount.
      Booth: Discretion can also be an accessory to murder.
      Winkler: I know my law, Seeley. I can't be charged for simply selling ammunition.
      Caroline: Well, you see, cher, I am the law, and I can charge your scrawny ass with whatever I want.

    • Angela: I mean, this is a computer chip. You can program it.
      Brennan: Which suggests you can program the bullet.
      Angela: Yeah, which means we're looking at something from the future.
      Brennan: Time travel is physically impossible.
      Angela: Yeah, but so is a bullet that you can program like a computer. Like we didn't have it bad enough with the old kind.

    • Booth: Well, you're the one who says that you can't argue with the choices that Broadsky makes on who he's gonna shoot.
      Caroline: Yeah, I can't fault that, but now the man has crossed a line.
      Booth: Causing a suicide?
      Caroline: No. Man sneaks into your house, threatens you with a gun. That's unforgivable. He should get lethally injected just for that.

    • Booth: I'm coming after you. I'm gonna catch you, and next time I have you in my sights, I'm not aiming for your knees.
      Broadsky: Good to know, because if that moment comes, I will not hesitate to make that sweet son of yours fatherless. He'll be the collateral damage.

    • Brennan: I admire your certainty, but since good and bad are such subjective concepts, how could you ever be sure you were doing the right thing?
      Booth: Okay, well, it's not subjective to me. I mean, there's good, and there's evil. Life is all about taking sides, and Broadsky, well, he joined the wrong team.

    • Broadsky: You and me both—we've always been on the same side.
      Booth: No, you're off the reservation, pal. You want to do the right thing, you give me that gun, and you let me take you in.
      Broadsky: I'll tell you what. The day I wake up and there are no more bad people that need killing, you're the one I come to.

    • Hodgins: I actually have a question for you.
      Sweets: Oh, great. Shoot. Probably not a term I should use during a murder investigation, huh?

    • Booth: You're the best!
      Caroline: Tell me something I don't know.

    • Caroline: Funny thing about Witness Protection…
      Booth: What's that?
      Caroline: …It sort of comes with a built-in motive for murder attached, doesn't it?
      Booth: (laughs) That's why they need protection.

    • Bones: The bullet severed the C5.
      Booth: Right. Severing the spinal cord from the brain stem is the gold standard for snipers. We call it disconnecting the computer.
      Caroline: You can never have too many cute phrases for taking a life.
