A man's body in a tub full of lye is hard to identify, except for its brittle bone disease and paternity. However it fits two sets of father and sibling cases: electrician Larry Turner has a daughter with teacher Lila Turner and Lawrence Seaver has a son, Ray, with Gayle Seaver. Apparently both mothers ignored his double life and bigamy. Meanwhile the team wonders about Booth's feelings for his own son Parker's mother, Rebecca Stinson, who rejected his marriage proposal. Chop sticks worn in a woman's hair point to a Chinese restaurant, where the wives met and discovered that "Larry/Lawrence" made a third woman, Chloe Daniels, pregnant, yet the trio claims Larry killed himself. Forensics shows he was shot in the head after dying on the construction site of bitterly dissatisfied customer Pete Valera, thus suspect #4. Written by

When Hodgins starts talking about a dancer he once knew named Abby Rhoades, Booth calls him Ringo and tells him to stop talking. This is a reference to The Beatles
, as their penultimate album was Abbey Roads, and Ringo Starr
was their drummer. See more
Booth says that the victim has a "living will" leaving all of his assets to one of his two wives. A living will does not serve to distribute assets after death; rather, it is a directive to medical personnel regarding treatment in the event of the patient's incapacity. See more
