Brennan: What I want to tell you is that I have absolute faith in you. I trust you. I know you love me and Christine, and ... I'm sorry I lost sight of that temporarily. You're a good man. You have your reasons, and ... when you can, you'll share them with me. I'm sorry.
Booth: Look, I'm sorry ...
Brennan: We'll be fine. But next time, it's your turn to ask me to marry you.
Booth: I will. As soon as I can, I will.
Brennan: I know.
Aldo: Booth loves you.
Brennan: Booth told you that?
Aldo: He confessed it to me. Not being married is a sin to him. I'm not sure a nonbeliever can understand that kind of sacrifice.
Brennan: I wanted to marry him.
Aldo: Not as much as he wants to marry you.
Brennan: Do you want me to have faith in him?
Aldo: You know, I've seen Booth do some terrible and ... and difficult things, but only if he was compelled by a very good reason.
Cam: I know this is about Booth, and my advice to you would be to trust him.
Brennan: I feel the intense feelings of romantic love are fading from our relationship.
Cam: Have you looked at Booth lately? He's miserable. If what you're suggesting were actually true, you'd both be experiencing relief. Do you feel relieved?
Brennan: I don't always know what I'm feeling.
Cam: Well, you are not relieved, Dr. Brennan. You're miserable. And so is Booth. And that is love.
Booth: Look, I just have a fast question, Father.
Booth: Aldo, right. Look, I would sacrifice my own life for Bones, all right? I would kill for her. Then why am I not calling Pelant's bluff, huh? I mean, it's not my fault I put first the happiness of the woman I love.
Aldo: That's true.
Booth: It's true, right?
Aldo: One question. When Temperance finds out that you put her happiness ahead of the lives of five innocent people, how will she react? You knew the answer already. You just needed to hear me say it.
Booth: Stop telling Bones I'm lying to her.
Angela: What's the problem, Booth? What, do you need one more fling before settling down?
Booth: I'm not a fling kind of a guy, and you know that.
Angela: Maybe Brennan isn't as attractive to you now that she's become a mom.
Booth: You're not helping the situation.
Angela: You're ruining her very fragile heart. You should be ashamed of yourself!
Hodgins: We are at war with the CIA?
Cam: That's a little melodramatic.
Hodgins: Hey, they have killer robot drones, Cam. Read a newspaper.
Booth: Look, we're gonna ... get past all of this.
Brennan: I-I don't even know what all of this is.
Booth: Hey. I-I love you, okay? You love me. Everything's gonna be okay.
Brennan: I know you want me to accept what you're saying on faith because you're a man of faith but I believe in patterns and sequences, and ... this sequence doesn't end well unless something disrupts the pattern.
