Trivia

When reviewing the bones before the trial, Dr. Edison is interrupted by Dr. Addy. At the end of the conversation, Dr. Addy says, "Good luck" while Dr. Edison responds with "I don't need luck." Dr. Edison's response is a nod to an infamous quote in "The Great Gatsby" See more »

Goofs

During the final scene, Temperance is waiting outside on the court steps alone with extras in the background. The montage plays like Booth exits the courtroom to join her directly outside, but if you watch the middle pillar behind Bones carefully, David Boreanaz's whole right side (minus head) repeatedly juts out as he lies in wait at his mark the whole time, even when the montage starts, so "Booth" doesn't really go directly to Bones.

Brennan's dad Max goes on trial for the alleged slaying of the rogue FBI director who tried to kill the Brennan son. Everyone but Brennan is allowed to testify for the prosecution. Brennan realizes something has to happen fast or her dad stands a good chance of going to prison. Lots of oddball humor lightens up this slow-going courtroom drama. Booth and Brennan are supposed to keep their distance during the trial. but this proves difficult for both of them. Everyone on the team gets equal time in this episode, with Angela a standout on the witness stand as she decides to do what's right from a moral standpoint. Booth is bit conflicted during the trial, but in the end deliberately plays right into Brennan's ploy to save her father.
