Two 'hippies' fishing at the beach find a nearly consumed corps, a few weeks old. It's Patricia Ludmilla, 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.

During the "cold open", while examining the upper half of the body found first, Dr. Brennan says to Dr. Saroyan and Agent Booth, "Not able to ascertain sex without a pubic bone." But Emily Deschanel mispronounces/misreads "pubic" with a short u [i.e., first syllable sounds like the British word "pub", so "pub ick"], something which obviously no one with even the slightest medical education would ever do. Since the actors' lines are usually voiced over after filming for clarity purposes, this would have been easy and inexpensive to correct in another voice take, if show handlers had been paying attention.

I think I should begin my first sermon to you as kind of an introduction. My name is Ryan Stephenson. I'm a child of man. I'm a child of woman. But more importantly, I'm a child of God, and as I look around I see others like me. We don't look alike. None of us look alike.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan
