Goo goo, 13 January 2009
Author: ctomvelu-1 from United States

B&B end up with a baby on their hands while investigating the death of a young mother. Booth of course takes right to the kid, Booth being a father and all, while Brennan initially is very awkward around it. She even allows the rugrat to swallow a crucial piece of evidence. By the end, you just know Brennan has found her nurturing side and is bonding with the baby. Having a baby around the office gets Hodgins and Angela, who are still sweet on each other at this point, thinking about kids. Some very funny dialogue ensues. As many of you know, I quickly tired of the whole Hodgins/Angela thing (I also got tired of Angela), and evidently so did the writers in time. But the two talking about having babies here is absolutely priceless.
