Storyline

Two 'hippies' fishing at the beach find a nearly consumed corpse, a few weeks old. It's Patricia Ludmuller, the missing reverend of the close-knit Inclusion church parish on a fairly isolated island. She was a closet transsexual. Bones' blatant disbelief embarrasses devout Catholic Booth. Anthropology student Vincent Nigel-Murray proves his forensic talent and conversational wit. Angela reconstructs her male identity: TV preacher Patrick Stephenson, presumed dead, disappeared with a fortune in Thailand six years ago, leaving a wife Cecilia and teenage son Ryan, who left commercial religion. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Vincent Nigel-Murray: Is there a way to quit working here without losing Dr. Brennan as my grad supervisor?
Dr. Camille 'Cam' Saroyan: I see. You'd like to quit this internship without losing your academic standing.
Vincent Nigel-Murray: Yeah.
Dr. Camille 'Cam' Saroyan: Can I ask why?
Vincent Nigel-Murray: It's absolutely impossible to kiss your own elbow.
Dr. Camille 'Cam' Saroyan: And how is that relevant?
Vincent Nigel-Murray: It isn't, Dr. Saroyan, but, um... I'm someone who loves knowledge, and all of you are very narrowly focused. It's a good focus, I know, catching murderers, but, um, all in all, I'd rather be like me than like you, so if you can help ...

A decomposed, partial body is found in the water. Eventually, the other half turns up. Identification is difficult at first, as the deceased apparently had some serious plastic surgery. The team finally realizes this is the body of a man surgically turned into a woman, and a minister at that. Suspicion falls on his son, also a minister. The episode treads lightly on the subject of transsexuals, but it is gruesome in a way that the kiddies in the viewing audience definitely should not be watching this. Keep an eye on the actor playing the son. He undergoes his own rather remarkable transformation without benefit of surgery.
