Storyline

Bones was to authenticate a rare Iron Age find, but as usual moans about it's 'urgency' when told to accompany Booth to Hollywood to investigate some coyote-nibbled human remains found around Los Angeles Airport. Upon arriving in LA they meet up with Special Agent Tricia Finn, a would be script-writer obsessed with the possible filming of Bones's book. Meanwhile back at the Jeffersonian, Dr. Goodman, steps away from his management role to return to his archaeologist roots to head up the authentication of the Iron Age man but terribly annoys Hodgins with his theatrical methods. Some details about the location of the find do not match the results from the skeleton analysis and causes Dr. Goodman to refuse to definitively authenticate the find. The LAX skull clearly belongs to a woman who had plastic surgery which keeps Angela from being able to reconstruct the victims features. The only lead, an illegal breast implant points them toward plastic surgeon Dr. Kostov who reported the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Dr. Temperance Brennan: Every culture nurtures ideals of beauty toward which people strive - fine! But in the future people'll look back upon the surgical alterations of the nose or breasts or buttocks with the same horror that we regard the binding of feet or the use of bronze coils to extend the neck.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: You wanna speak up? 'Cause it's really hard to hear every word in this very, very quiet waiting room.

Skull-ish
24 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B head to La-La-Land to check out a corpse found on the beach. Some problems with the corpse's skull make it nigh unto impossible for Angela to reconstruct a face. Too much plastic surgery, as it turns out. The trail to the woman's murder leads to a call girl ring. While in LA, Brennan meets with people about turning her novel into a movie. She does a TV appearance with Penny Marshall, who is excited about the prospect of making a move out of Brennan's book. Back at the ranch. Hodgins clashes with Dr. Goodman over the origins of a corpse that may be 1,500 years old. Their back and forth leads to a surprising conclusion.
