Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Jack Hodgins (as TJ Thyne)


In Booth's elaborate hospital nightmare, most of the series' (semi-)regulars, including the alternating apprentices, Zach and Max, play very different characters. Several are suspects, defended by Caroline, in mob 'cleaner' Vorstenbach's murder in the toilet of a nightclub run by spouses Booth and Bones, which Iranian mob baron Arastoo is determined to take over. Sweets is the barman and Gormogon band's lead singer, Wendell the loyal bouncer, Vincent Nigel-Murray the cook and DJ, Hodges a crime writer. Jared and Saroyan are in charge of the FBI investigation, which is complicated by loyalties inspiring lies and other secret agenda's. Written by KGF Vissers

When Cam (as the Detective) pulls out the .38 that was hidden in the sound system she refers to it as a "Saturday Night Special" and "totally disposable". In fact it's am older model Colt Detective Special, a collector's item that would never be referred to as a Saturday Night Special. Ironically her next line is about crime novelists ""always getting it wrong". See more »

Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Yeah.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: I have to stop that.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Oh come on, Bren. Just because you have one glass of wine every night with your husband, doesn't mean you're an alcoholic.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: That's not why.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: [pause realizes what she means] No?

get real
14 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the hallmarks of a great series is the ability to step back (or forward) and demonstrate a sense of humor about itself. Not that there isn't some dark humor in Bones (after all, if nothing else Shakespeare made that a must to disrupt tragedy/drama). In this episode every character slips neatly into an alter ego that matches their regular series character as slick as slick can be. This is a ride. You don't take an amusement park ride seriously, you just enjoy it for what it is: an escape from the daily grind. This episode is a fun house. The mirror distortions are just enough to make you smile; but if you are a regular viewer you know just as you get to the end you will find yourself once again in the "real" world of the series. And that is just what happens here. And who doesn't like Iceland?
