Dr. Temperance Brennan
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Dr. Jack Hodgins
Dr. Lance Sweets
Special Agent Seeley Booth
When Booth tells Brennan that "Hot Blooded" is "our song" it's because they've rocked out to it together before -- in the season one episode "Two Bodies in a Lab".
Goof: When Cam and Michelle are talking in the diner, a man wearing a brown plaid shirt can be seen walking toward the bar and sitting down behind Cam. The shot switches to Michelle, then back to Cam. When the shot goes back to Cam, the same man walks up behind her and sits down again, just like in the first shot.
This episode contains numerous overt and covert references to the rock band Led Zeppelin:
1) The victim shares a name (Richard Cole) with the man who served as Led Zeppelin's tour manager for the length of their career (excluding reunions). 2) The killer's weapon, a Gibson Les Paul guitar, is a guitar that Led Zeppelin's guitarist Jimmy Page has used extensively throughout his career. 3) The name of the fantasy camp's promoter/coordinator (Simon Graham) may be an amalgamation of the names Simon Kirke and Bill Graham. Simon Kirke is a drummer who was once rumored to have been in the running to replace the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. Simon Kirke has also appeared as a counselor at Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp. Bill Graham was a famous rock concert promoter with whom Led Zeppelin's management had some physical conflicts.
4) Towards the end of the episode, Booth and Bones share a conversation about tickets for Led Zeppelin's 2007 reunion. David Boreanaz (Booth) actually attended the Led Zeppelin reunion.
Angela: According to my dad, guitarists have this thing about their picks. Different materials make different sounds.
Hodgins: Brian May uses an English penny.
Queen guitarist Brian May actually uses an English sixpence coin, which is equivalent to six pennies, and hasn't been legal tender since 1980.
Brennan: If a testicle is severely twisted or de-gloved, it almost always necessitates removal. (Booth and Sweets are visibly uncomfortable) In the case of penetrating trauma …
Booth: No … no … d … j … do you think we can go twenty minutes on this case without talking about testicles?
Cam: (looking for a victim's body part) Is there a testicle up here?
Hodgins: (with Arastoo) Four that I know of.
Michelle: (about her gynecologist) Is that why you sent me to him? So you could get a date? I know you haven't seen anyone since I've been living with you.
Cam: No. He's a good doctor. That's all.
Michelle: Who just happens to be cute.
Cam: Yes. No. God.
Michelle: Why didn't you tell me? Don't you trust me? You have to sneak around behind my back?
Cam: No. Wait. How did we switch roles here?
Camper #1: Dude, you could lose the tie around here.
Brennan: Well, he- he likes it. It's a- a gift from a woman.
Booth: (shows badge to campers) All right, FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (to Brennan) Hacker get you anything?
Brennan: A subscription to Lapham's Quarterly.
Brennan: I was a very big fan of Toad the Wet Sprocket.
Booth: You might wanna keep that to yourself, all right?
Booth: We have some unanswered questions about Kurt Cobain's death, we thought maybe you could give us some insight.
Brennan: I believe he was being ironic but if you do have information about this Cobain person, I'm sure the FBI would appreciate that too.
Booth: Thanks Bones.
Bones: Booth seems to like Catherine, don't you think?
Cam: I do. I'm glad. It's been a long time since he's dated anyone.
Bones: I know. It's important for Booth to share his life. I prefer being alone.
Cam: But you're seeing Hacker.
Bones: Yes, and I like him, but not like Booth. I mean, not like Booth wants to like someone.
Cam: All organisms evolve and develop along patterns only recognized in retrospect. Your life doesn't exist outside the laws of nature.
Bones: Then in ignorance, I await my own surprise. Although the odds of it involving a commitment to another person are remote.
Bones: Our partnership is still important to me. You know that, right?
Booth: Sure. Yeah. Die for your partner. That's the way I look at it.
Sweets: (about Booth and Bones) Wow, you two seem to be handling dating very well. I'm impressed.
Bones: Well you've known me for two years Sweets, you should expect to be impressed by me.
