  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Aldo: By the powers vested in me by the District of Columbia and the Internet, I now pronounce you man and wife.
      Brennan: You can kiss me now.
      Booth: Aldo didn't say that I could kiss you.
      Aldo: As usual, she's right. Go.

    • Brennan: When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved, in case our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela, and... I wrote to you, Booth. (reading the letter) "Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and angels, and maybe even Santa Claus, and because of you, I've started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me so much joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try-try to sneak a peek at you, you're already looking at me? Like you, it makes no sense. And like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and a place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful." This is that time. This is that place.

    • Booth: You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here... Look, um, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was, um, right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because, um, you were irritating me. And, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me. I said to you, "Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row, right?" And then you said to me--
      Brennan: I can be a duck.
      Booth: Yeah. You know, we have been chasing each other for a long time. We've been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes and... You know, chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy, but now we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because... we caught each other.

    • Aldo: Ladies and gentlemen, friends and loved ones of Seeley Booth and Temperance Brennan, if anyone here has any reasons why these two shouldn't be married, keep it to yourself or get out because this is going to happen.

    • Brennan: I'm not certain if you are aware, but Agent Booth and I are getting married today.
      Wendell: Congrats, Dr. B.
      Fisher: Suck up.
      Clark: Being polite is not the same thing as sucking up.
      Wells: I'm pretty sure that it is.
      Arastoo: We're all very happy for you.
      Wendell: Yeah, says the guy who got invited.
      Daisy: Well, he didn't really get invited.
      Fisher: He still gets to go.

    • Booth: Look, I know what this wedding meant to you, and the flowers and the dress.
      Brennan: I don't care about any of that. It's you who I'm worried about.
      Booth: Me? Why me?
      Brennan: The church. I know how important that is to you.
      Booth: I didn't ask for that. That was your idea this time around.
      Brennan: Because of you.
      Booth: Bones, I would wear elephant tusks on my head and have a squirrel monkey do the wedding ceremony if that's what you wanted.
      Brennan: You really don't care?
      Booth: No.
      Brennan: Well, neither do I... as long as you're there.

    • Angela: All that matters is that you two are gonna tie the knot today. I've got it all under control.
      Brennan: But Booth wants us to be in control.
      Angela: Yeah, well, the killer wanted to be in control, too.
      Brennan: I don't understand.
      Angela: That professor wanted her Emily Dickinson story to be the only real one, right? But circumstances changed. Just like here. The details aren't what's important. The poetry, that's what's important. And the poem here is you and Booth. So don't put off what you two have wanted for so long because a few details have changed.

    • Marianne: Seeley, what you have here... is the final piece to the puzzle. It's what's going to make you whole. Tempe is the woman that I always wished I could be, and the one that every mother always prays that her son will find.

    • Hank: You're a lucky man, Shrimp. You found a woman who's willing to stand up to you and call you on your crap.
      Booth: Say my what?
      Hank: You can be stubborn. And if she's willing to stick around and try to civilize you, then you'd better listen and make adjustments, 'cause that's love.

    • Brennan: If I have to think about the remains instead of my wedding, I will be very unhappy. You wouldn't want that, would you?
      Clark, Wendell, Wells, Arastoo, Fisher: No.
      Daisy: Absolutely not.
      Brennan: I thought not. Good luck.

    • Hodgins: All right, uh... You don't want in on the pool?
      Cam: No. (pauses) Dr. Hodgins? 20 bucks says it's cancelled by 1:00 tomorrow. Oh, God, I hate myself.

    • Angela: Hey. Did you place a bet on this wedding?
      Clark: I prefer not to tell you while you're wearing your tough face.

    • Angela: You see, Brennan? This is gonna solve itself. You are not needed.
      Hodgins: And since the wedding is tomorrow, you should get your beauty sleep.
      Brennan: I don't need sleep to be beautiful.
      Hodgins: No, but it does help you be pleasant.

    • Hodgins: (after they get a call) I'll put $25 on the wedding being canceled by lunchtime tomorrow.
      Sweets: Yeah. 50 bucks says it's canceled before the sun goes down.
      Cam: Worst friends ever.

    • Brennan: Dr. Wells is a polymath, and more than qualified to do the research. And if he isn't, we dismiss him. No one likes him anyway.
      Fisher: I kinda do.
