During the court scene regarding the fungus, Angela says that "when the defendant punctured the victim's jugular, he nicked himself." Cam then states that this released the 'bacteria' into the victim's bloodstream. Bacteria and fungi are two entirely different things. Bacteria don't have a nucleus whereas fungi do. See more »

Special Agent Seeley Booth: First of all, guys, they don't ask for advice. And secondly, I am not gonna help you get my partner into bed.
Special Agent Tim Sullivan: Why not? It's not like you want her.

So Booth is asked to quit wearing his flashy ties, socks, and belt buckle. Why? It's an experiment - to get to the truth of why he behaves the way behaves. In this episode, Hodgins messes with evidence because he had a relationship with the victim's wife. Booth is livid when he learns the truth and thinks he should be fire right away. I'm still not exactly sure why Jack got off so easily...he almost screwed up the entire case.

Brennan is dating the FBI agent she worked with in the previous episode and is thinking about sleeping with him. The ending scene between her and Booth (along with another scene played earlier) shows that Booth is denying any sort of love interest in Brennan, but he knows it's there...

When I watched this show the first time around, this frustrated me. But this time I think I understand their reason for ignoring their attraction to each other. They have something really good going - something that hardly anybody gets in this life. They don't want to mess that up...
