Storyline

Booth, still suffering some lingering effects from his brain surgery, has to get re-certified for FBI marksmanship, but is not the accurate shot he was before going under the knife. Meanwhile, the team at the Jeffersonian investigates the remains of a little person discovered in a sinkhole. The victim, Bryce DaFonte, also known as "The Iron Leprechaun," competed in a popular wrestling league, but the popularity of the franchise left him with many enemies, including bitter competitors and scorned lovers, any of whom could have caused his downfall.

Trivia

During the original air date, Fox was having a "Tribute to The Simpsons" week during which their shows would somehow reference The Simpsons (1989). In this episode, Dan Castellaneta (who voices Homer Simpson) makes a guest appearance. Also, in the first scene inside the lab at the Jeffersonian, an X-Ray of Homer Simpson's head is clearly hanging in the background. See more »

Goofs

Not only is the rusty gun on the tray nothing like a Ruger it doesn't even look like the weapon shown later to the girlfriend in the interrogation room, which appears to be a small Beretta. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: So... about my marksmanship certification, any advice?
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Grow a set! Be a man! Step up! She's your partner for Heaven's sakes. The job you do is highly dangerous. She counts on you for protection. So you damn well better protect her.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: That's your big psychiatric advice. Just grow a set?
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Indeed, when it comes to a man and his gun, a woman is the natural cure. Take Dr. Brennan to this, um, shooting event. You won't fail in front of her. Trust me.

Love seeing Gordon Gordon! Everyone has such a good rapport with him. Angela and he like to assess Booth and Brennan's relationship. Gordon and Sweets evaluate the relationship from another angle, and they all come to the same conclusion involving Booth and Brennan. Of course, we don't need Gordon's affirmation to know what we've known since Season 1!

Booth also admits to something big in this episode, and it's proved in the last scene. We are getting so much closer, yet it still seems so far away!

Oh, and the main story: it's another age-old money and greed Biblical story.
