Special Agent Seeley Booth
Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Daniel Goodman
This episode marks the end of Booth's relationship with Tessa.
At 2:03, when a lady is arguing with Bones, her lips visibly say the word "bitch," but this utterance was dubbed over with "fool."
At 38:25 a clip of Bones is an obvious insert; film quality is poor compared to the rest of the scene.
In this episode Brennan and Angela discover the grave of a man in a wall. In the fifth episode of Angel, also starring David Boreanaz, the body of a young man who was murdered by his mother was also discovered in a wall.
The black cane with a silver wolf's head handle that was a key piece of evidence in identifying the killer was the same cane used by the sometimes vampire Barnabas Collins in the gothic soap Dark Shadows.
Rulz: Where did you find her?
Booth: In the museum.
Booth: He [Rulz] wants us to hold him.
Booth: Why? Because every time some rapper gets murdered, his business goes straight through the roof.
Rulz: You know, why should DJ Mount get the bump, huh? Maybe it's my turn.
Booth: I tell you what. We'll make you a better deal. If you tell us what we need to know and I'll have those charges laid against you, hm? Put you in the remand center?
Rulz: For how long?
Booth: Well, that depends on what you tell us.
Brennan: Wait, wait. You're negotiating to put this guy in jail?!
Booth: I'll sweeten the pot. Charge you with Mount's death too. Let you hire, uh, one of those moron lawyers. And, uh, you'll be thrown in, uh, in lockup for, what, maybe a month?
Brennan: Where am I, in backwards world?
Brennan: You did not murder Eve Warren.
Rulz: This is a weird kind of interrogation, huh? Cops telling me what I didn't do.
(Brennan is petting Tudy, a cadaver dog)
Brennan: Tudy has traveled the world finding dead bodies.
Booth: Does Tudy always drool like that? (Brennan and the dog keeper give him a stare) What? I'm gonna hurt her, (takes a better look) his feelings?
Dog Keeper: Tudy is the best cadaver dog in the world, Agent Booth.
Brennan: It's true. If you were a dead body, you'd want Tudy looking for you.
Booth: I don't like parrots. No, people should really, really do all the talking.
Angela: Get this. I called Tessa to tell her a couple of places she should check out in Jamaica, she's not going.
Brennan: What happened?
Angela: Well, she said something came up at work but I know the truth.
Brennan: What truth?
Angela: They got freaked out by stage six.
Brennan: Which, what stage six?
Angela: 1. Spend the night. 2. Spend the weekend. 3. Exchange keys. 4. Sexy weekend getaway. 5. Extended vacation, inevitably followed by 6. Move in together.
Brennan: I'm an anthropologist, I know the stages of everything. You just made those up.
Angela: I did not.
Brennan: Yes, you did.
Angela: They got to stage five and they balked.
Brennan: Not Booth. Booth did not balk.
Angela: Sweety, it's always the guy.
Brennan: Booth is not a balker.
Booth: You know, this really isn't gonna be the type of vacation I was hoping for.
Booth: Tessa's not going. Something came up at work.
Brennan: That's too bad, I'm sorry. (Sees him sad) Hey, I like going on vacation by myself.
Brennan: Sure. Nothing wrong with being alone.
Booth: No, I mean you like to go on vacation?
Brennan: Yeah, I go places all the time.
Booth: You ever just, you know, sit on the beach, pretend there is no such thing as skeletons?
Brennan: Is that in any way fun?
Booth: When was the last time you got away?
Brennan: Got away from what?
Booth: Oh, Bones. You know, cause what usually happens to me, I think about not coming back.
Booth: Yeah, you know, you go with someone, you joke about not going back to your real life, the two of you laugh. But, when you're alone the world is full of possibilities. (They look at each other for a moment)
Brennan: See you next week.
Hodgins: Crystal meth is made from cold medicine, lye, and the strike pads from matchbooks. The body was not designed to deal with that kind of assault.
Brennan: So I'm finding out.
Hodgins: Chamomile tea? It's very soothing.
Brennan: No, I just need your results.
Hodgins: How about a stick to pry the monkey off your back?
Mr. Taylor: I have some information you need.
Booth: About your son's death?
Mr. Taylor: No, sir. About his life.
Brennan: Angela said rap artists sometimes kill each other over the music: Jam Master Jay, Tupac, Biggie.
Booth: Do you even know who you're talking about?
Brennan: Yeah, I've done my Googling.
(Booth walks into Brennan's office while she's listening to hip-hop music.)
Booth: Never knew this side of you, Bones.
Brennan: It's DJ Mount.
Booth: And you're hung over. Doesn't this make your head explode?
Brennan: I grabbed a couple hours of sleep on my couch and showered in the lab's decontamination room.
Booth: You really know how to live.
(Brennan puts her hand into the mummy's removed skin)
Booth: Oh, God. What are you doing?
Brennan: The Aztecs would flay people and then wear their skin as a body suit.
Booth: I guess you won't be needing mittens for Christmas, eh?
Hall: (about Brennan) Where'd you find her?
Angela: Eve ripped out her belly button ring here and then left a smear of blood until the corridor widened here.
(Brennan exhales, feels nauseated)
Brennan: That just makes me a little sick.
Angela: You pick dead bodies out of mass graves and yanking out a belly button ring makes you sick?
Booth: Ok, ok. Moving on, all right? I've shot a lot of people in my time and I gotta admit, that little belly button thing makes me nauseous, too.
Brennan: Thank you.
Brennan: What happened to your hand?
Rulz: Oh, I got shot through the wrist a few years ago.
Brennan: Shattered the lower radius and the pisiform.
Rulz: Yeah. I got some nerve damage, too.
Brennan: That's impressive.
Rulz: Yeah. I got shot in the back and through the leg, too. You wanna see the scars?
Booth: What happened?
Brennan: (After inhaling in the meth cloud) Well, the Egyptians would give the body a cedar oil enema and then rinse it with wine and cover it with salt, but I don't think that's what happened here.
Booth: Bones, you are totally wasted.
Brennan: Zack, Zack! Zack. Come here, come here. Isn't this a beautiful specimen of mummification?
Zack: What's going on?
Booth: Let's just say your boss inhaled.
Hodgins: How many times do you want me to poke Zack?
Brennan: Just once, but as hard as you can.
Zack: As hard as he can? Why don't I hit him as hard as I can?
Hodgins: Because you have arms like noodles while I'm vigorous and burly.
(Hodgins hits him with the cane.)
Zack: That all you got burly boy?
Booth: Ya know what? I'm gonna spread the pain. That's my new motto.
Brennan: (Chasing after Booth) Wait. I can help spread the pain. Wait.
Rulz: So you gonna put me in jail?
Booth: It's the least we can do.
(Talking to Booth and Tessa.)
Angela: Oh, you two are so ready for the pre-shacking up test vacation.
Booth: Ya know what? I'm going to turn you into an investigator yet.
Hodgins: No, no, no, bugs and slime, that's where I'm happy.
Booth: I think I need a vacation. I think you do, too.
Brennan: I'm not the one who's snippy.
Booth: Snippy? What are you, like 70?
Brennan: See what I mean? I think you should find a nice relaxing place to go on that vacation. (Booth is exhaling impatiently) Somewhere where you can get a massage, maybe do some yoga.
Booth: I don't do yoga. Okay? Push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, that's what I do.
Brennan: Yeah, that's more cardiovascular, yoga deals more with -
Booth: Why exactly are we talking about this?
Brennan: Because you're tense.
Booth: Because we're talking. (he turns on the radio)
Brennan: After the Cartesian split in the 17th Century we separated our mind from our bodies... the numinos from the animalistic...
Female Dancer #1: Are you calling me a [sic] animal fool?
Female Dancer #2: No fool. She's using Descartes' philosophy to say she's down with the music.
The idea for this episode came from the real-life story of disc jockey Eduardo Sanchez. Sanchez was reported missing fourteen months before his mummified body was found inside a wall of a popular night club in Winnipeg, Canada. The story, "DJ's Mummified Body Found Behind Wall in Club," was published by the National Post in December 2003.
"Rize" - Flii Stylz (in the hip-hop dance classroom)
"Soul Survivor" - Young Jeezy (featuring Akon) (in the hip hop studio)
"Run It" - Chris Brown (when Bones and Angela are at the bar in the club)
"Something" - Cary Brothers (during the final scene)
"Gunpowder Language" - move.meant (performed by the club's DJ at the beginning of the episode)
Robert Gossett, who plays Mr. Taylor, also plays a character named Captain Taylor on TNT's show The Closer.

Booth: Let's just say your boss inhaled.
A funny allusion to Bill Clinton's famous admission that he had experimented with marijuana whilst in England, but that he had never inhaled.
Booth: Okay, so how is my man the Tut?
King Tut or Tutankhamun was an Egyptian Pharaoh from the 18th Dynasty who ruled ancient Egypt for 10 years. Booth is being sarcastic as the man Brennan discovered behind the wall was mummified like most Pharaohs were.
Angela: Pepe Le Pew is more important than booze and boys.
Pepe Le Pew is a Looney Tunes character in the Warner Bros. series of cartoons. Pepe is a French skunk who in the springtime starts to search for new love in Paris. This is a sarcastic reference on Angela's part, as it is her response to Brennan's desire to catalog a skull from the French Revolution rather than go out.
Brennan: Angela said rap artists sometimes kill each other over the music—Jam Master Jay, Tupac, Biggie.
Brennan mentions the names of several American rap artists who were murdered in gang-related shootings. Jam Master Jay was a hip hop singer shot on October 30, 2002 in New York. Tupac was a rapper shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas who died a few days later on September 13, 1996. Biggie Smalls (The Notorious B.I.G.) was a rapper and hip hop singer killed in a drive-by shooting on March 9, 1997 in Los Angeles. Despite what Angela said, there is as yet no proof any of these men died as a result of music-related issues.
Rulz: What's the FBI recruiting from, America's Top Model now?
Rulz is talking about the CW's America's Next Top Model created by Tyra Banks. The judges look for girls who want to pursue careers as supermodels and have what it takes to make it in the business, but only one girl can win during each season.
FBI Forensic Guy: Take it easy there, Willard.
Willard was a film made in 1971 and remade in 2003 (starring Crispin Glover), about a man who controlled an army of rats to seek revenge on those who wronged him.
