Headmaster Ronson: How is that relevant?
Dr. Temperance Brennan: You know what's a better question? What makes you think you get to decide what's relevant? You're basically the pricipal of a high school.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: We need to see all of the sex tapes you confiscated.
Headmaster Ronson: Absolutely not.

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.
