Storyline

Booth and Bones went to the desert outside Las Vegas to verify if an old, clobbered corpse is that of missing public prosecutor Mason Roberts, presumably murdered by the mob he investigated, as claimed by a dying call-girl. However circling vultures lead them also to a nearby, far fresher and younger female corpse, Billy Morgan. Her husband Don Morgan, who reported her missing fearing she left him after he lost his job, has a broken thumb, mob methods for a shark-loan for her breast-implants to start 'exotic dancing'; Billy's corpse has such extensive, partially defensive injuries incurred over a long period that she must have been bare-knuckle-boxing in illegal 'ultimate fighting'. Don says he thought she stopped boxing after losing her license a year earlier.

Goofs

While waiting for Booth, Bones begins playing blackjack and almost gets into trouble for card counting. According to official rules and U.S. law, mental card counting is perfectly legal, as long as there is no external device used to assist the process. However, as casinos are private businesses, they are allowed to bar anyone from the building or from gaming for any reason as long as it is not discriminatory. Casinos will routinely remove successful card counters from the casino. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance Brennan: Oh my god! I completely forgot you can't be here, Booth. You're a degenerate gambler.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Former gambler, okay? Not degenerate. I've been through the program, okay? And you know, he's on the move!
Dr. Temperance Brennan: What if you get a sudden urge to gamble while you're here? It's like sending an alcoholic to a distillery. Do you need to sit down?
