    • Angela: (about the proposal) Yeah, wait a minute, why now? What happened? And this is crazy and great.
      Brennan: I used simple evidence-based logic. When I thought about living with Booth for the rest of my life, my phenylethylamine and ghrelin levels were clearly elevated, but--
      Cam: You could just say it felt right.
      Brennan: It did. It does. It's clearly irrational, but I feel I could never find a better man to spend my life with. And I'm--
      Angela: Happy.
      Brennan: (chuckles) And I thought that should be recorded for the world to know.

    • Booth: Okay, look, I'm gonna be fine.
      Brennan: I know. I mean, I don't know, and neither of us know. We hope. I mean, I could be the target, or you could die of a heart attack, or I could get hit by a bus.
      Booth: Okay, just slow down for a second. Just, will you just slow down.
      Brennan: The point is, I want to marry you. Will you marry me, Booth?
      Booth: Are you serious?
      Brennan: Yes. I've been afraid, I've been stubborn, and I've been in love. And marriage would make you so happy.
      Booth: Are you sure? You're not just saying this because of Pelant and everything that's going on here?
      Brennan: Positive. All this just made me see things more clearly. I love you. I want you to be my husband. I want to- I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Say something.
      Booth: Yes. Of course. Yes.

    • Brennan: I just know that men are dying. Men like you.
      Booth: I am not going to die. Understand? Sweets says that Pelant sees this as a game. That is why he called me.
      Brennan: He called to say that the rules were changing.
      Booth: Yeah, okay. If I'm gone and you're gone, then the game is over. We have to focus on winning. Okay, look. He's just trying to throw us off? W-We're smarter than he is. Well, you're smarter. Look, you're the smartest person in the world. Ever. I mean, since the beginning of time.
      Brennan: Stop.
      Booth: It's true. Oh, except for that one guy. Uh, Gary from old-time Greece. (chuckles) He was smarter than you.
      Brennan: (after kissing him) You are not allowed to die. Do you understand?
      Booth: Yeah. I understand.
      Brennan: Good.

    • Booth: What do you want this time?
      Pelant: You, uh, you crossed a line when you shot me, Agent Booth. I thought, I thought we were working so well together. I never did anything to hurt you guys.
      Booth: You think this is some kind of a game?
      Pelant: Of course. Now the rules have changed.
