When Brennan hands Booth the access pass he wanted, she says 'Absit invidia' - a Latin phrase meaning "Let ill will be absent", i.e. "No offense". See more »


Booth sets off an alarm when he steps onto the platform in the lab because he doesn't have his own badge that will deactivate it yet, but in Pilot and The Man in the SUV, there is at least one instance of him using a badge already. This is most likely indicative of a re-shuffle episode order, though it could easily be explained away by saying that the one he used before wasn't a permanent one and Bones gave him one that was permanent.

Lose the Tude!
9 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Booth and Brennan is why I watch this show. They both have personality issues, though I usually like Booth more than Brennan.

Booth was in a very, very bad mood throughout this episode. If I had been Brennan at the end, I would have punched him and told him where to stick his access card. I'm not sure what was wrong, but he was very obnoxious. I don't recall him being that way often throughout the episode story.

The story was good. Booth and Brennan worked well together, and the squints pulled together to get a job done.

One thing I puzzled over: It seems in the previous episode, Booth had an access card. I recall him scanning himself through.

I liked it better when Booth shows up at the lab to work on the case. It seemed more personable. In later seasons, he hardly ever shows up.
