Ken Nakamura: Most of the FBI Agents showed up and started telling us how to handle our organized crime problem. Booth said nothing. Two, three days, just listening.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: He was quiet? That
[slight chuckle]
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: that does not sound like Booth.
Ken Nakamura: Then he asked a question. He asked "How would you gentlemen handle *our* organized crime problem?" He was respectful.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: That is the basis of your friendship?
Ken Nakamura: That and the situation incited by a gallon of Sake on a police boat at Uruaga Harbor at dawn.

Head on a stick
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young Japanese woman is killed and mutilated in a particularly unsavory fashion, and B&B are soon on the case. The dead girl's brother, an old friend of Booth's, flies in from Japan to find out what happened. Accompanying the brother is a renowned forensic scientist, and one of the lighter moments in the episode has the team wondering whether this scientist is a man or woman, as he/she sports an androgynous look. As episodes go, this is a low-energy show and too much time goes by filled with padding. The body of the dead girl is delightful, as it was subtract in a pond for a bit of time. So gorehounds will have something to keep them awake, at least.
