Trivia

Several characters exhibit surprise that the twins could have had a sexual life while being conjoined. However Chang and Eng Bunker, conjoined twins from Siam from whom we get the term 'Siamese twins', were not only married, they had 10 and 11 children respectively. They shared one home with a bed built for 4 until their wives (who were sisters) had a falling out, after which Chang and Eng split their time between their wives' houses. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Camille Saroyan: Dr. Brennan, if you do have to perform, any chance that you could set up a webcam so we could watch? You know, to see if we might be of any help with the case, I mean.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yeah, absolutely, anything to help.
[Cam covers the webcam with her hand and gives a thumbs up to Hodgins]

Cute, but why?
23 January 2009 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

This episode gets a 6 only because Emily Deschanel looked pretty darn good in her knife-thrower target outfit. Otherwise, it was a bit of fluff and seems to only be useful for setting up the increasing relationship between Bones and Booth. The end of the episode is a bit uncertain because I can't decide whether the circus will get in trouble for the death of the twins. The carnies left in the middle of the night, but it's not like they have dropped off the radar. How hard will it be for the cops to find them? I'm not real satisfied with Angela's lesbian relationship after her hot near-marriage with Hodgins, and the never-ending succession of interns is getting tiresome.

That all being said, it's still one of our favorite shows and we hope it stays on the air.
