Storyline

Mailman Steve Rifton's corpse is found in frying fat, hence extremely decayed over two weeks. He was reported missing for three months. The highly intelligent man's passion was the computer game Punky Pong. He recently lost the world record, which was bitterly contested. Both motive and means require several theories based on forensic findings until things start fitting. Meanwhile Jeffersonian intern Colin Fischer gets three Avatar tickets, which also excites Hodgins and Sweets, so they cover for each-other to take turns standing in line for the best seats. Colin's tent however offers an unexpected alternative 'entertainment' for two. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Sweets, Hodgins, and Fisher camp out in a theater line to see Avatar (2009). Joel David Moore, who plays Fisher on Bones, plays Norm in Avatar. As an in-joke, or ironic twist, Fisher misses the premiere while he's having sex in the tent as everyone else enters the theatre. See more »

Goofs

Brennan and Booth are in Sweets's office getting advice from Sweets about the aggressive video of the other gamer. When Sweets gets the call from Hoggins the camera turns to face Brennan and Booth. The Gamer on the screen clearly sits back in his chair with an slightly annoyed look on his face even after the video was supposed to be paused earlier. See more »

Want to see my tattoos?
5 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the murder of a letter carrier whose remains are found in a large tub of used cooking grease. Turns out the mailman was also a champion video game player of an old-school title called "Punky Pong." Could the video game thing have anything do to do with his slaying? While this is going on, Hodgins, Sweets and the hippie intern whose name always eludes me are planning to see AVATAR together, and must hold their place in line. Complications ensue, among them being a sweet young thing who latches on to Sweets while he's holding the place in the AVATAR line, and she insists on having sex with him. Conveniently, the boys have set up a pup tent in the line. But Sweets is conflicted, even though the girl has some swell tattoos across her breasts. Back the ranch, the boss is mystified by the boys' abrupt comings and goings. A funny episode indeed.
