    They did not mention that Cuba legalized religion years ago.
  • Bravo!

    Bones back to its sparkling best! Often guest casts lets down an episode but everyone was excellent and I like the forward flirtatiousness of the new potential intern. In fact I think this season has made me laugh and cry more than the last few seasons. Pleased it is renewed for another season....

    5.0
    This guy is arrogant and not a fit for the Jeffersonian. Lastly, your turning this show into a Coca~Cola Superbowl commercial with this character. I get enough PC shoved down by the media I dont need it on this show.

    • Brennan: (after seeing his cross necklace) Coming from a land of atheists, I wouldn't expect you to be a religious man, Dr. Fuentes.
      Fuentes: I am an atheist. This was my father's. His religion was taken from him and his parents, driven underground... It was very painful to them.
      Brennan: But if you don't believe--
      Fuentes: I believe in the right to believe. That's what this means. Eventually, we all make our own choices. But we can't make good decisions unless we are exposed to everything. Can we?

    • Brennan: You're upset. You know I would never sleep with him.
      Booth: Well, you know what? You did tell me once that you thought that monogamy was unnatural.
      Brennan: Yes. That's true. Before I realized that we were symbiotic. Like a clown fish and a sea anemone.
      Booth: What?! What are you talking about, Nemo? That doesn't sound very romantic.
      Brennan: I disagree. You and I, we're bound to one another. So much so that I don't feel that I could survive without you. You nurture me. You protect me. You are my home. If I were to damage that by a meaningless dalliance, it would be like killing myself. Something that I would never do.
      Booth: That sounded a little better.
      Brennan: I would never let anything compromise the life we share, Booth. I love you.
      Booth: Okay, now that's romantic. I love you, too.

    • Brennan: I need a break from Dr. Fuentes. I find him to be arrogant and conceited and preemptory.
      Angela: You forgot hot.
      Cam: You are married, Angela.
      Angela: Don't tell me you haven't looked at that guy and thought that you--
      Cam: This is not workplace conversation.
      Angela: I'll take that as a yes.

    • Brennan: Put on a lab coat and be back here in five minutes. If you disappoint me, I will dismiss you.
      Fuentes: How Cuban of you. She is fiery.
      Cam: Yes. Be careful. We've all been burned.

    • Booth: Look, all I'm saying is that church could be good for Christine.
      Brennan: Will she learn about the Crusades and the Inquisition?
      Booth: Seriously?
      Brennan: Why don't you just read her a Superman comic? It's also a fantasy about a mythic hero whose powers defy the laws of physics and common sense.
      Booth: Okay. You're saying that Jesus and Superman are the same?
      Brennan: Jesus walks on water. Superman flies. No different.
