Season 6 Episode 18

The Truth in the Myth

Aired Tuesday 9:00 PM Apr 14, 2011 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • During a conversation in the car, Brennan and Booth talk about Lee Coleman and Brennan does not know who he was. Booth says Bones doesn't have a TV. She says she does, but it is in the closet. This might give the impression that she is not watching TV at all (stated many times in previous episodes). It was well established earlier this season, however, in the Maggots in the Meathead that Bones watched a "documentary" or rather reality show about a subculture of "Guidos."

    • Goof: When Vincent is apologizing to Brennan, she walks away and is seen standing with her back to Vincent. In the next shot (with Brennan close-up) she is obviously facing Vincent.

    • Goof: Angela claims to have boosted the audio-recording above the Nyquist-frequency. On the one hand this is very unlikely since most digital-cameras use some sort of video and audio-compression, so frequencies a human can not hear would not have been recorded by the camera. On the other hand, the Nyquist-frequency is the resolution-limit of a frequency-based encoding of an audio-sample, which actually says, the sampling-frequency must be at least the double of the maximum frequency to be properly encoded (Shannon-theorem: f_s >= 2 * f_Nyquist). Therefore, even boosting the recording as Angela claims would not reveal any extra audio-information since it would simply not have been recorded.

  • Quotes

    • Hodgins: This seems to be shaping up to be nothing more than a hoax.
      Saroyan: Don't sound so sad. Do you really want to live in a world where chupacabras run free?
      Hodgins: Yes, I really do.

    • Booth: Look, shouldn't there be more blood?
      Brennan: Yes, it-it appears all of the blood has been drained from the victim's body.
      Booth: I'm guessing psycho …
      Brennan: But look at the ribs, two through six, on the left side.
      Hodgins: Bite marks.
      Booth: Cannibal?
      Brennan: No. It-it's not human dentition.
      Booth: I'm confused.
      Brennan: Me, too, a-and I don't like the feeling.

    • Brennan: Okay, what is your point?
      Booth: Well, that things are confusing, okay? Just because you can explain something doesn't mean that it's explainable.
      Brennan: Do you mean explicable?
      Booth: Sure, like us. We don't make any sense at all.

    • Booth: (toasting) Here's to stupidity and greed, the two elements that keep us employed.

    • Hodgins: She shot him accidentally?
      Booth: Well, she actually said it was his own fault for not wearing an orange vest in the woods.
      Angela: This is why I'm against hunting.
      Cam: Not because of Bambi?
      Angela: All right, mostly because of Bambi.

    • Booth: So, our friend the animal psychic has an alibi.
      Brennan: (laughs) Don't tell me. She was feeding a flock of pigeons in the park, and they're all willing to testify.
      Booth: Close, counseling a horse.

    • Angela: You really had to volunteer us for this, huh?
      Hodgins: Yeah! Thought coming out to the woods would be nice, you know? Little fresh air.
      Angela: Honey, let me share something with you. There's a human growing inside me. Vegging on the couch and eating pints of mint-chip ice cream is all I actually want to do.
      Hodgins: Recent studies show that mothers who gain excess weight during pregnancy make their babies more prone to childhood obesity.
      Angela: Oh. That's interesting. I read a study that says that husbands who suggest their pregnant wives are fat are far more prone to being slugged by them.
