Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Lance Sweets
Special Agent Seeley Booth
Angela used the exact phrase "the proof in the pudding" in the season 2 episode "The Truth in the Lye" as she was making a reference to a deteriorated body that was found in a tub full of corrosive household cleaning products.
It is revealed that Seeley Booth is a descendant of John Wilkes Booth, the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. But since John Wilkes Booth never got married and never had any kids, Seeley could only be a collateral descendant of his at best.
Hacker: You mind telling me why it's so important you get in there?
Booth: They're my people.
Hacker: Oh God! Now you're going to prove that you're a better man than I am, too? (Booth leaves) That you care more about your people? (sighs) How am I going to get anywhere with Temperance if you keep making me look bad in comparison?
Sweets: Why would the General Services Administration bring in a body?
Hodgins: Standard federal issue cover-up.
Angela: This is the first time I have ever been as paranoid as Hodgins.
Booth: You're FBI property. If anyone's gonna lock you up, it's gonna be me.
Cam: Is there any way I could just ... persuade you to ... look at these and guess cause of death?
Cam: I need to get home to kill Michelle.
Booth: Hey, guys, guys, listen. I'm gonna need some science, uh, jibber jabber to distract these guys.
Brennan: Oh! You know who can do jibber jabber?
Hodgins: (after Angela tells him she's pregnant) Wow.
Angela: So, Wendell should be the first to know but, you should be the second and since I told Cam, I- I should tell you.
Hodgins: Do I say "congratulations"?
Angela: I don't know. I mean it's not the right time. It's not the right guy.
Mr. White: You are not permitted to identify the victim.
Brennan: In order to recreate what happened to the skull, we need to, encase it in flesh.
Angela: It's totally non-descript, as you can see.
Sweets: Do you know who I kindda see? Ricky Martin.
Hodgins: Alex Trebek.
Cam: James Garner. (Mr. White shakes his head in defeat)
Brennan: I see Booth.
Booth: W- you think that looks like me?
Brennan: Yes I do.
Booth: You must think I'm crazy for being so happy that it wasn't J.F.K.
Brennan: I'm very impressed. You wanted the truth even if it was going to hurt you.
Booth: I learned that from you.
Booth: Yeah. I mean sometimes you have to ... go with your brain over your gut.
Cam: Were you aware that J.F.K. had scarlet fever in childhood?
Brennan: Hodgins informed of that fact, yes.
Cam: Scarlet fever can cause osteomyelitis.
Brennan: It's ... very rare, Cam, it can happen in approximately one of one hundred cases. It's statistically unlikely that it was Kennedy.
Cam: You're a good person. (pauses) I will never forget what you did for him.
Cam: I'm too young to be a grandmother.
Brennan: In some cultures, you're old enough to be a great-grandmother. (Cam worriedy glances at Hodgins)
Hodgins: But not this one.
Hodgins: What was that all about?
Angela: Yeah, well, what makes Cam crazy?
Hodgins: When I do experiments.
Angela (nods) Michelle.
Hodgins: Ooh, sixteen. (pauses) Ouch.
Cam: Strange question, I know, but I gotta ask. (shows a pregnancy test) Are you ... by any chance pregnant?
Brennan: No, I haven't had sexual intercourse in quite some time.
Cam: Do you want to know why I'm asking?
Brennan: You're holding a home pregnancy test, I assume it's positive and you're worried about losing the most ... important person in this lab.
Cam: (sarcastically) No, very modest.
Jack: You're gonna have this baby.
Angela: I don't know that yet.
Jack: Yeah, well, when you do, I've been thinking. You're gonna try to raise this kid on your own. Wendell is, a very decent guy.
Angela: He's a great guy.
Jack: I know. But he's a struggling grad student and you're gonna minimize his responsibilities for his own good.
Angela: Please. Regular Nostradamus there, huh Hodgins? Hm. Predicting the future?
Jack: Says the woman who consults a psychic. My point is -- I'm your guy.
Jack: I'm your guy. I love you. I love you! And ... I want to help you in whatever way I can. If- if you want to move in together; if- if you want to get married, I'm here for you. And for the baby. In whatever role you need.
Mr. White: You want my permission ... to shoot a cantaloupe.
Mr. White: With my side arm.
Brennan: You took away Agent Booth's firearm.
Cam: You want our best work? This is what we do.
Mr. White: And, this experiment is essential to ... cause of death?
Brennan: Because you have, forbidden us from taking samples in order to estimate the osteoconductivity of the oblique taphonomic remodeling, pertaining to the midsagittal plane, a- a cephalometric transaction -- or translation -- if you will, of the intramatrix can be deduced by correlating the force displacement values with the osteogenic, angiogenic, hydrogel nanocomposite we place inside the surrogate.
Mr. White: Which is ... a cantaloupe.
Brennan: You understand me perfectly.
Hacker: Booth. Are you being held against your will?
Booth: (snorts) C'mon, I could get out if I wanted to.
Hacker: That's not the question I asked you. I asked you, "Is an agent of the FBI, being held by persons unknown against his will?"
Booth: Yeah. We all are.
Hacker: Then I find on behalf of the FBI, I am annoyed by their arrogance.

Mr. Smith and Mr. Jones from the General Services Administration are an allusion to the lead actors Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones of the 1997 movie "Men in Black," which was about a top-secret agency in charge of alien activity on Earth. The term "Men in Black" is also frequently used to describe any mysterious men working for unknown organizations that cover up alien conspiracies, or more recently, any organization that has unknown purposes -- similar to the General Services Administration.
While the team is examining a computer recreation of the Kennedy Assassination, Angela uses the phrase "back and to the left" to describe the motion of Kennedy's head after being shot. This phrase has been used many times to describe the motion of Kennedy's head after being fatally shot, as seen in the famous "Zapruder Film" -- a home video taken of the assassination.
