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 »

Goofs

Vincent Nigel-Murray uses the term "begs the question" incorrectly, something that a well educated person like him wouldn't do. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Buck was more dashing than you. I mean, Buck drove a motorcycle.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Well, Wanda was funner than you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: How?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Well, she let me knock off a rubber nose from her face with a knife. You would never let me do that. You're *way* too rational.

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.
