Dr. Jack Hodgins: [giving a toast at the wake] This is a sad day for all of us, but I think it's important that we remember what we loved about Hank, you know? His sense of humor, of course. He was always quick with a joke, good or bad. Usually bad. But he-

Brennan and the gang attend the funeral of a Jeffersonian colleague, only to realize he was murdered (this involves Brennan doing something to the corpse in its casket, while dozens of mourners mill about). To make sure she's right, they spirit the body back to the Jeffersonian for a closer look, just hours before it is due to be cremated. Highlights of this lunatic episode: Multiple -- and I mean multiple -- suspects, Booth singing and dancing to "Swing Low" and Sweets, momentarily left in the dark as to what's going on, having a very funny exchange with the funeral director, who has been left to guard the empty coffin from prying eyes. A great episode.
