Vincent Nigel-Murray: The fire appears not to have damaged the remains.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: How did it start?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: [after Hodgins and Nigel-Murray point to the remains] Oh, I see. So, we're going with the old blame the corpse defense.
Vincent Nigel-Murray: I just... I... turned on the C ring magnifier. And then there was a little... pop. And then...
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Woosh.
[Nodding emphatically as if that explains everything]
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Pop. Woosh.

Another new low
18 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

At least forensic part of the story was much better than the last two episodes. But what we gained in science department, we lost in affairs. It seems that Brennan's character took a dive back to her stone age when she wasn't able to have emotions. Her stupid part took control of her logic and forced her to act childish. She wasn't definitely acting like the one we have seen improved through last seasons. Booth character is more close to what we have seen before with a little bit of comic stupidity and less control and punch lines. Specially his excitement over a monkey was a tad too childish. If bones moves more in this direction, it can expect to attract more teen fans and less adult which is revolutionary considering the age of its actors.
