As Brennan is leaving Booth's bathroom, you can see Mario Lemieux's Pittsburgh Penguins jersey hanging on the wall. Booth also has a glass item on his desk that has the Philadelphia Flyers' symbol on it. This is funny because the Flyers and Penguins are big rivalsthey are both Eastern Division in the Atlantic Conferenceand you either like one team or the other, not both.
All of the replacement bones (which belong to known victims) relate to their jobs:
Gavin Nichols (his pinky finger): as a violinist, his finger was essential to his music, and was insured for millions
Father Cooper (his knee caps): as Booth said, he would have spent a lot of time kneeling
Mr. Porter (his jaw bone): he was a lobbyist, and lobbyists tend to do a lot of talking
There are five clocks on the wall in Booth's bathroom. They are all set at different times: 1:40, 2:10, 11:50, 10:05 and 8:35.
In earlier episodes it was stated that Gormogon only takes widows' sons as apprentices, yet Zack has both of his parents - they're alive and well in Michigan. Even though Zack worked in the Jeffersonian and had special access to Gormogon's vault, Gormogon still broke his own rule by making Zack his apprentice.
Goof: During Sweets' interview on TV, victims' bodies are shown - the second body shown is that of Ed Milner, who was discovered in the "Death in The Saddle" episode and who has nothing to do with the Gormogon case.
When Brennan and her student are talking about the skeleton from Limbo, Brennan says the femur indicates a height of approximately 180cm. When asked what that is in English, she says about 5'8". 180cm is actually just under 5'11".
Goof: Booth explains to Sweets that Bones was mad "because she didn't know I was dead." But she was actually mad because she didn't know that he was really alive.
Caroline (about the skeletal storage/limbo) This is just creepy.
Bones: Well, it's the natural order of things. We all end up this way.
Caroline: Thank you, cherie, now you've made it creepy and depressing.
Sweets: (about Brennan) So you didn't tell her to leave, you just sat there, naked?
Booth: It was my own bathroom, okay? What do you wear in the tub, floaties?
Cam: (reading out of a script) Well, there's a little thing that looks like a Japanese stool, then a 'b' with a tail, then a fat fish. Does this make sense to you?
Zack: It doesn't to you?
Hodgins: Hey, how are you, Zack?
Zack: Quite severely injured.
Caroline: (at the funeral) I knew Seeley Booth. He was a good man, who earned my respect and affection - and I don't like many people.
Cam: I knew, the day I met Zack, he'd cause me pain.
Booth: There's got to be other stuff going on here, right?
Booth: Transference, uh paranoia. Come on! I mean, when I offer her a piece of pie, you say it has deeper meaning!
Brennan: I don't like pie, Booth.
Booth: Apple pie. She doesn't like baked pie.
Brennan: I don't like my fruit cooked.
Sweets: Okay, changing the subject is a way to avoid your feelings.
Booth: My feelings? Okay, now you're attacking my feelings?
(Brennan barges in on Booth in his bathtub)
Brennan: I need to talk to you!
Booth: What the hell, Bones! I'm in my house, in my bathroom, in my bathtub! How the hell did you get in here, anyway?
Brennan: Well that fake rock by your front door wouldn't fool anybody. Why are you wearing a hat that dispenses beer?
Booth: (looking sheepish) Hot tub plus cold beer equals warm beer. Hat equals solution. Why are you ... ?
Brennan: And that cigar. Very unhealthy.
Booth: Ok, what the hell do you want now, Bones? Because I'm not really feeling too relaxed.
Booth: I gave a list of people to the Bureau to inform them that I was not really dead, you know? If they didn't tell you, it's not my fault.
Sweets: Dr. Brennan is actually upset because she had to face strong emotions that she'd rather deny. Striking Agent Booth indicated the depth of your feelings for him. It was a very passionate act.
Booth: Thank you! Did you hear that? Passion!
Brennan: Yes, passion, because anger is a passion. Anger at being manipulated!
Zack: Dr. Brennan ...
Booth: Aw, forget it!
Booth: Next time I die, I promise that I will tell you.
Brennan: I'll look forward to that.
Booth: (to Sweets) So go ahead tell her.
Sweets: Tell her what?
Brennan: Tell me what?
Booth: Tell her now?
Booth: Fine. I'll tell her. (to Brennan) Okay, I sent my list to the Bureau, they sent it to Sweets. (to Sweets) You were the one who decided not to tell Dr. Brennan that I was still alive. (to Brennan) He's the one you should have slugged. So do it. Go ahead, do it now.
Brennan: What? You chose not to tell me?
Sweets: Yes, it's true. Technically.
Sweets: Okay, I reviewed the list, and I decided, knowing Dr. Brennan as I do, that she was in fact able to handle your death.
Booth: (to Bones) Slug him.
Sweets: It was a national security issue - the fewer people that knew Agent Booth was alive the safer he would be.
Brennan: (to Booth) I think that was a good choice.
Sweets: (relieved) Awesome.
Booth: You do?
Brennan: Yes. You knew that Booth's death was something I could deal with because it's something I can compartmentalize.
Booth: Whoa, wait a minute, now why are you mad at me then?
Brennan: Because you should have told me personally.
Booth: Oh, I should have just ignored national security concerns, broken the law, and told you.
Angela: I would like to welcome all of Dr. Brennan's grad students to Limbo.
Bones: It's modular skeletal storage. I don't like the moniker "Limbo."
Angela: Over 10,000 lost souls remain here, sweetie. Unidentified. Waiting. It's a good name; let's just go with it.
Hodgins: (after the explosion) Excuse me if my faith in the Bureau isn't absolute.
Hodgins: Since when did I become the assistant?
Zach: Since I became the uncontested 'King of the Lab'.
Brennan: (about Zack) I never gave him anything.
Booth: (finds and reads Brennan's letter offering Zack to be her grad student) I think you gave him something pretty great.
Brennan: All of your assumptions are built upon a first principle, Zack. To wit, the historical human experience as a whole is more important than a single person's life.
Brennan: Yet you risked it all so you wouldn't hurt Hodgins.
Brennan: It's Zack. He's the killer, Booth. It's Zack.
Sweets: I think it's interesting psychologically how Agent Booth's constant efforts to persuade you to enjoy fruit pie could be interpreted as a type of seduction.
Cam: A toothless cannibal just can't cut it in today's competitive serial killer climate.
Zack: Is it a cake or is it a pickle?
Hodgins: It's Schroedinger's Cat.
Zack: That makes sense to me. Cakes and pickles mean nothing to me.
Brennan: I knew I shouldn't have gone to that funeral, it was a complete waste of time just like I said.
Booth: Wait a second, you thought that my funeral was a waste of time?
Cam: I thought it was a lovely service Booth.
Booth: Thank you! You know, I expected to see more people though ...
Hodgins: I always imagined a lot of ex-girlfriends crying.
Booth: Yeah, me too.
Angela: You guys are pathetic.
Brennan: (to Booth) Just know, I won't be attending your next funeral.
Booth: Bones, I'm telling you, you were supposed to know that I wasn't really dead, I swear! That's why I thought you weren't crying!
Brennan: (about the woman who shot Booth) That woman was aiming at me. I would have happily taken that bullet.
Angela: (to Bones) Look, I know how you see things, and I respect that. But, I need to ask you a favor. I have to go to the funeral. I'm not going to be able to get through this alone. I've been crying for like, days. I really need your shoulder here. I need my best friend.
Booth: Bones broke into my house last night --
Bones: There was a key!
Booth: ... All angry because nobody told her that I was dead. And I was just following protocol!
Sweets: Broke into your house?
Bones: There was a key.
Booth: (talking over her) And barged into my bathroom.
Sweets: (laughing) What were you doing?
Bones: He was drinking beer and reading a comic book.
Booth: I was taking a bath!
Sweets: You read comics and drink beer naked?
Booth: Wait a minute. Bones bursts into my bathroom, alright, and I'm weird for being naked?!
Bones: (to Booth) Just so you know I find your lack of puritan modesty very refreshing.
Grad Student #3: (bragging) I'm third in my class!
Brennan: I'd like the names of the two students in front of you.
Cam: If you want to do one of your experiments just say so.
Zack and Hodgins: (in unison) We want to do one of our experiments.
