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
At the beginning of the program, while at the crime scene, Pete the construction guy is asking if the tub, a "Godiva 3000", could be reused since it is so expensive. The tub shown is a claw foot, which is in fact a more expensive type of tub than a standard type of tub. Pete goes on to say the building is subsidized housing and the government needs all money accounted for. Since subsidized housing is contracted on a low bid process, subsidized housing would never use expensive items like a claw foot tub. See more
