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

Bones comments on the method of execution in the state of Maryland. This is irrelevant, since her father is on trial in federal court and not subject to any state's method of execution. See more »

Quotes

Angela Montenegro: All of us together, and Brennan alone.
Dr. Zack Addy: She's not alone. She's with those African-American people.

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.
