  • Quotes

    • Brennan: Booth, do you think I'm being small-minded about Cam getting the award and not me?
      Booth: Yes.
      Brennan: What?!
      Booth: You might want another answer, but I can't give that to you.
      Brennan: But I'm clearly the best scientist.
      Booth: And are you a worse scientist because Cam's getting the award?
      Brennan: Of course not.
      Booth: See? Yeah. So you're just being petty because you want to win.
      Brennan: I thought you would take my side.
      Booth: I am on your side, okay? I'm on your better side.

    • Dr. Filmore: (while searching the remains) A foot!
      Brennan: A foot is not necessarily the solution to this forensic puzzle.
      Dr. Filmore: I see you haven't lost your conviction that you have all the answers.
      Brennan: Well, I am outstanding and without peer in my field. I assume that is why your government wanted you to observe me. (Filmore takes some notes) What are you writing now?
      Dr. Filmore: Oh, just an observation that Americans are hubristic, and Canadians must deal with this challenge in future cooperative ventures.
      Brennan: Facts are not hubris, Dr. Filmore.

    • Booth: Ah, you know what? Just remind me. I got to write a thank-you note to the guy who invented waffles.
      Brennan: The recipe first appeared in Le Ménagier de Paris, a book a husband wrote for his wife in the 14th century. Since he's dead, a note would be pointless.
      Booth: I pity the men who aren't married to you, Bones.
