"Bones: A Boy in a Tree (#1.3)" (2005)
Mickey Santana: In order for an investigation to occur, you, Dr. Brennan, have to declare it a murder.
Dr. Daniel Goodman: Without an investigation, we can't find out if it's a murder, but there'll be no investigation unless Dr. Brennan declares it to be a murder.
[to Brennan]
Dr. Daniel Goodman: Shall I send for a philosopher?

Dr. Daniel Goodman: [to Brennan] If he smells with his gut, what does he use his nose for?

[activates hologram showing an image]
Angela Montenegro: ...totally freaked her out.
Zack Addy: [Booth starts dialing on his cell phone] My theory: caffeine intolerance.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: [speaking into his phone] Yeah. You're gonna want to take Dr. Brennan off the witness list today... No. She can't make it into court. Thanks.

"Bones: The Man in the Fallout Shelter (#1.9)" (2005)
Special Agent Seeley Booth: What are those little tiny lights dancing on the ceiling?

Dr. Daniel Goodman: You are stoned, Agent Booth.

"Bones: The Woman at the Airport (#1.10)" (2006)
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You wanted to see me?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: You are a very difficult and stubborn man, Dr. Hodgins. Right now I'd like nothing more than to fire you. In my position very few people tell me the truth anymore. I find I enjoy it, in some perverse way.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You're willing to admit you bailed on the authentication?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: Yes.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Seriously?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: But not for the reasons you think. True, we might be able to authenticate the skeleton by taking him apart, destroying him. If he's a fake that will be fine, nothing lost. But I think he's the real thing.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You do know he's been dead for fifteen hundred years, right?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: I am an archaeologist. This is what we do. We step outside the facts and tell ourselves the story of an individual or a culture. And if the story I tell myself about this man who lived fifteen hundred years ago is true, if he was laid to rest by people who respected and loved him, don't I owe it to them not to let the pure scientists desecrate his remains?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Or you could be totally rational and say you were waiting for imaging technology to improve to the point where it wasn't necessary to disassemble him.
Dr. Daniel Goodman: Ah, yes. I suppose I could say that. It's less, uh...
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Sentimental - for the pure scientists.
[they shake hands]

[Dr. Goodman glares at Zack]
Zack Addy: Wait, was that overly enthusiastic?

[to Dr. Goodman]

Dr. Daniel Goodman: Oh, for God's sake.
