  • Quotes

    • (Hodgins and Bray are discussing why Angela ignored his call.)
      Wendall: So, what did you do?
      Hodgins: Nothing! I-I-I make her breakfast. I tie her shoes, for God's sake!
      Wendall: Well, there's gotta be something. Are you going to talk to her?
      Hodgins: Ah, of course not. She's pregnant. The hormones are running the institution.

    • Brennan: Why is it so difficult to tell me something I already know?
      Booth: It's hard to explain.
      Brennan: Some things are better left unsaid.
      Booth: (toasts) To things that we don't say.

    • Brennan: Mr. Bray told me that I'm abrasive. Do you agree with that?
      Booth: Well, you speak from the heart, Bones. I-It makes you, you.

    • Brennan: Well, why wouldn't you have done that before?
      Wendell: Because she's my boss, and I was nervous.
      Brennan: So you're a coward by nature?
      Wendell: What? No.
      Brennan: But you just said …
      Wendell: Forget it. You know, Dr. Brennan, you may not realize it, but you can be extremely abrasive.
      Brennan: Oh, no. I-I'm well aware of that.

    • Brennan: Is it possible for a lawyer to be entirely honest?
      Sweets: Well, a group dedicated to exploring the truth is likely to attract individuals who have made a habit of lying on a regular basis.

    • Angela: Mmm … Nothing like a cup of decaf to wake you up in the morning.
      Sweets: Caffeine's completely off-limits?
      Angela: Yeah, unless I want a baby break-dancing on my bladder.
