  • Trivia

    • Goof: When the girl in the hat fell into the hole in the ground and her friend saw the skeleton, she faced the camera and opened her mouth like she was screaming. In the next shot, however, she was facing her friend and then she noticed the bones.

  • Quotes

    • Rainbow Girl: Did you hear that? Mother Nature is so incredible.

      Bones: Mother Nature is not real.

    • Booth: Listen, uh … Bones, I do trust you.
      Brennan: Does that mean that you're not going to hover over me, like a crab whose mate is about to molt?
      Booth: I don't actually follow that, but no, I'm not.
      Brennan: You're not going to stop?
      Booth: I know it's not fair, but no, I'm not gonna stop.
      Brennan: Why?
      Booth: Why? Because I know that I'm not going to be able to always protect you and this beautiful baby. So acting like I can actually makes me feel less helpless.
      Brennan: (laughs) So, basically, you're asking me to support your delusion.
      Booth: Yes.
      Brennan: That's crazy.
      Booth: Well, you got a little bit of the crazy in you, too.

    • Booth: Bones, I'm really sorry I lied. I'm really, really sorry, Bones.
      Brennan: You think you have the right to control me because I'm carrying your progeny.
      Booth: Do you think maybe we could just use the word daughter?

    • Fisher: You have a son. You tell me, is letting your child have a simple, casual sexual encounter really too much to ask for?
      Angela: Well, my son is eight months old, Fisher. He doesn't date a lot.

    • Booth: Hey, did you fall or something?
      Brennan: I'm fine. I find this to be the easiest position from which to observe the remains.
      Booth: Let me get you a chair. Can I get a chair?
      Brennan: No, I don't need a chair.
      Booth: Something to sit on?
      Brennan: Booth, I'm pregnant, not sick.

    • Hodgins: Oh, that's the largest coffee they have?
      Angela: At least yours has caffeine in it. I have to hope that the taste of the decaf just tricks my body into staying awake.
      Hodgins: You want a few sips of mine?
      Angela: Our baby doesn't sleep, and you want me to feed him breast milk laced with speed?
      Hodgins: A good point.
