Dr. Jack Hodgins: When you love someone, you open yourself up to suffering. That's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: People say you only live once, but people are as wrong about that as they are about everything. In the darkest moments before dawn a woman returns to her bed. What life is she leading? Is it the same life the woman was leading an hour ago? a day ago? a year ago? Who is this man? Do they lead seprate lives or is it a single life shared? A storm approaches. It is still over the horizon, but there is lightning in the air. Are either of them aware of the gathering turbulence? Can they feel the crackle of electricity in the wind, or are they aware of only the power that they generate between themselves? The first hint of this storm is not a thunderclap... it is a knock.
Wendell Bray: What's goin' on, boss?
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Oh, I got a meeting with an angry gang banger in the alley. Why?
Wendell Bray: I got my gun.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: You got a gun?
Wendell Bray: He's the leader of gang who's killed people and he hates your guts. I ain't no mathematician, but that adds up bad.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: You know that glass of wine we share every night?
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?
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Yeah! You're pregnant? A little boy, huh?
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Or girl.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You're awake. Your operation was a success, but you reacted poorly to the anesthia. You've been in a coma for 4 days.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: It felt so real.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It wasn't real.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Who are you?
Detective Camille Saroyan: Good morning, I'm Detective Saroyan.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Yeah, I know who you are. You're my brother's partner.
Jared Booth: She prefers the term "boss."
Detective Camille Saroyan: Official visit. See the badge?
Detective Camille Saroyan: Now why would a crooked politician tell *you* that he was upset about not getting a payoff.
Lance Sweets: I'm a bartender. Practically a psychologist.
Vincent Nigel-Murray: You and I are not in collusion.
Zack Addy: Why not?
Vincent Nigel-Murray: Because you're the type of moron who goes to jail for a murder he didn't committ. And I, uh, am not.
Zack Addy: Then what do we do?
Vincent Nigel-Murray: Okay. What should I do is kill you with the gun, and tell the cops you attacked me after confessing to the killing.
Angela Montenegro: Julian warned us that you have to make an arrest in the case. I just wanted to say that just because Jared Booth and I went out on a couple of dates and he cannot accept the fact that it is going nowhere, does not mean I should got to jail.
Jared Booth: Didn't your lawyer tell you not to answer any questions you weren't asked?
Detective Camille Saroyan: [to Julian] Should I mark your people down as stupid or uncooperative?
Caroline Julian: Put them down as well represented.
Max Keenan: [speaking of Seely] He's a man of principle. And I mean that as a terrible insult. If he had just paid me off, none of this would have happened.
Wendell Bray: [watching Motley Crue doing their sound check] Awesome! It's the Crue!
Vincent Nigel-Murray: I've been bounced by a rock band.
Max Keenan: Why is it so hard for your husband to see the ways of the world.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Because he wants me to be proud of him.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Cam says the reason I didn't hear the gunshot is because I'm cheating on you.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Oh, well Jared thinks I'm the killer. He's helping me get away with it.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: So you're a murderer. I'm unfaithful. We are an exciting couple.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Max told me he works for the Gravedigger.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: He told me something else. He said that Jared works for him too.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Don't get so mad. Max could be lying.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Look, I'm mad because I don't find it hard to believe at all.
Lance Sweets: Hey, so uh, we're Gormagon. Um, I mean the name of the band is Gormagon. Some people think I'm Gormagon, but I'm not. It's like there's no one named Floyd in Pink Floyd.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Just play Sweets.
Lance Sweets: Yeah.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: [Quietly to Booth] Gormagon's a stupid name. What does it even mean?
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: Poor Cam, and Jared. You know if this murder is any indication, I don't know how any homicide is ever solved. Everyone lies. Everyone has a secret agenda. I'm glad we're nightclub owners, not crime solvers.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: I know who the killer is.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: So do I.
Detective Camille Saroyan: You think that was insensitive?
Jared Booth: I don't know, implying that she was cheating on her husband maybe could have waited until he wasn't standing right next to her.
Detective Camille Saroyan: Why? They bust up, you finally get a crack at her. That's what you want, right?
Detective Camille Saroyan: Who is this now?
Caroline Julian: Jack Hodgins. Very successful crime novelist.
Detective Camille Saroyan: They never get anything right.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: What about entertainment?
Angela Montenegro: I thought Sweets was fantabulisticulous.
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Nah. We got the Crue.
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: What crew?
Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Should I be upset that everyone thinks we're murderers, or just happy that everyone is trying to help us get away with it?
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: You should recognize that everything they do to help us, make us look more guilty, especially you.
