Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You think I don't recognize an experiment when I see one? You experimented on us!
Dr. Lance Sweets: Beg you pardon?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Not telling me Booth was alive, you wanted to quantify our reactions for your research. You took advantage of us. Booth and I agreed to let you observe us. We did not agree to be used as lab rats. So you *better* cut it out!
Dr. Lance Sweets: Dr. Brennan why are you talking so fast?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Because if Booth hears why you did what you did, he'd beat you up.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Don't you think that would be an overly aggressive act?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Not at all. So you better not do it again!
Special Agent Seeley Booth: [Standing in the entrance to Zack's hospital room] Cam. I'm going to need the room.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: [pause. Cam looks at Zack, then rises and walks to Booth and Bones] I'm sorry. But I have to ask. Are you absolutely certain? Because...
[Cam looks at Bones and Booth]
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Wow! I did not see that coming.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [to her Grad students] If anyone else shows up here indicating an interest in what you're doing, either tell Ms. Montenegro or shout for Security.
Grad Student #2: Why?
Caroline Julian: Because serial killers get *mean* when you get close to catching 'em.
Caroline Julian: [Looking at some remains in Limbo] This is just creepy.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well it's the natural order of things. We all end up this way.
Caroline Julian: Thank you, cherie. Now you've made it creepy and depressing.
Grad Student #3: [Hoping to impress Dr. Brennan] I'm third in my class.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I'd like the names of the two students in front of you.
[to catch a suspect from an old cold case, Booth has staged his death without telling Bones]
Special Agent Seeley Booth: [after seeing Bones knock out the suspect] Nice shot, Bones.
[off Bones' stare]
Special Agent Seeley Booth: What?
Dr. Zack Addy: Dr. Saroyan, regarding the denure medium, if we recreate the process...
Dr. Jack Hodgins: It could tell us a lot about Gormogon's resources.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: If you want to do one of your experiments, just say it.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Wait a minute. Bones breaks into my bathroom and I'm weird for being naked?
Dr. Lance Sweets: So you didn't tell her to leave? You just sat there naked?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: It was my own bathroom, okay? What do you wear in the tub? Floaties?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Since when did I become the assistant?
Dr. Zack Addy: Since I became the uncontested King of the Lab.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I've always been proud of you, Zack. I've never met anyone more rational and intellegent. But there's a fault in your logic.
Dr. Zack Addy: With all due respect, you aren't cognizant of his logic.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Assumption number one: Secret societies exist.
Dr. Zack Addy: Accepted. Hodgins has been explaining this to me for years.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Assumption number two: The human experience is adversely affected by secret socieites.
Dr. Zack Addy: Accepted.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Assumption number three: Attacking and killing members of secret societies will have an ameliorating affect on the human experience.
Dr. Zack Addy: Accepted.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: All of your assumptions are built on a first principle, Zack. To wit, the historical human experience as a whole is more important is more important than a single person's life.
Dr. Zack Addy: Yes.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yet you risked it all so you wouldn't hurt Hodgins.
[Bones presses her forehead to Zack's]
Dr. Zack Addy: There's - You're correct. There's an inconsistency in my reasoning.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [Booth is standing at a lab table, staring] Booth?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Hey Bones, I'm thinking here.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Thinking about what, exactly?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Well, it's a pickle. The platform's a crime scene, but we need to access it to investigate the crime.
Angela Montenegro: A "cake and eat it too" situation.
Dr. Zack Addy: Is it a cake or a pickle?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: It's Schrödinger's Cat.
Dr. Zack Addy: *That* I understand. Cakes and pickles meant nothing to me.
