  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Brennan: Bad teeth, bad boots. Our victim came from a lower caste.
      Daisy: We don't have castes in America.
      Cam: Wow. Would you care to look me in the face and say that?
      Daisy: Oh, God, did this just morph into a racial thing?

    • Brennan: So now you think I'd be a good president?
      Booth: Um, no, I don't. You know you're an atheist, you're not diplomatic, and you think America is an empire.
      Brennan: America is an empire.
      Booth: And I really, really wouldn't give you your own army or nuclear weapons. That would just be a disaster.

    • Brennan: (about the tiger) That animal was beautiful.
      Booth: It was beautiful and rare, just like you.

    • Daisy: A goat … more pigs … lots of cows …
      Cam: Try to limit the play-by-play to the exotic animals, Ms. Wick.
      Daisy: Well, I grew up in the city, so they're all exotic to me.

    • Angela: God help me, if you get into that "All boats rise in a flood" thing …
      Hodgins: "High tide raises all boats."
      Angela: Yeah. What?
      Hodgins: You said flood, a flood is a natural disaster. What? Most boats would sink in a flood. Tide's good, flood's bad.
      Angela: Seriously?
      Hodgins: Ask New Orleans.
      Angela: I'm telling you that I'm feeling inadequate, and you're talking about boats.

    • Hodgins: What kind of lunatic wants a wild animal as a pet?
      Cam: I think lunatic pretty much describes who we're talking about.

    • Hodgins: Dr. Saroyan, have you seen the excrement that I left on my desk?
      Angela: Think before you speak, Hodgins. Some people might not understand what you're referring to.
      Hodgins: Oh. That's a good point. So, have you seen it?
      Cam: Yes, I took your excrement. I wanted to study it.
      Angela: Ooh. Now everything sounds terrible, doesn't it?
      Cam: Awful.

    • Sweets: Well, it's ours. We officially live together.
      Daisy: Ooh! I've never lived with a man before.
      Sweets: Me neither.
      Daisy: You're so funny. Laughter is gonna be the main sound in our apartment. And sex.
      Sweets: Hopefully, not at the same time.
