Award winning ad man Ross Dickson's corpse is found by prancing youngsters, buried in a public playground, beaten to death in a mysterious way. He was a member of a radical truth-society, which caused many conflicts in private and professional life. Encouraged by Bones, Wendell Bray follows his example to secure the extra hours only he needs desperately while Camille would divide them indiscriminately, a one-off success while the others explicitly prefer 'civilized untruthfulness'.

Dr. Camille Saroyan: And there's also a new policy in the lab.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, what's that?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: You are the only person who's allowed to be radically honest. And that's only because I can't stop you.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Well, that's too bad. I prefer everyone to speak their minds.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I actually don't care what you prefer because this is my lab and I make the rules.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Then perhaps Wendell won't be able to tell you how ashamed he felt that he might've hurt your feelings after you were so generous to give him the extra work. He was quite emotional.
