After a skull and decomposing hands are found in a dumpster, the team must not only solve the crime but also search for the rest of the victim's remains. Identified as Ray Raminsky, the victim turns out to be a bounty hunter in search of Charles Braverman, a man indicted for the murder of a co-worker. Meanwhile, Brennan is asked by Professor Bunsen Jude "The Science Dude" if he can shoot an episode of his children's show from The Jeffersonian Lab with Brennan as his special guest. Brennan initially turns him down, but is surprised when he makes her a deal she can't refuse, so she takes him on as a new "squintern." As the team pieces together the details of the crime, they discover that they are not alone in the hunt for Braverman and find themselves in a chase with an unexpected suspect.

Angela Montenegro: If I have a daughter, I'm gonna name her Temperance.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You are?
Angela Montenegro: I mean, we won't call her that. It's awful. Maybe it'll be her middle name. But - I want her to love you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You love me.
Angela Montenegro: Yes, but not everyone is as willing to look as hard for your inner child as I am. And this kid is half Hodgins, remember?

I loved it. The cutest episode ever Very Funny.
15 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ending was adorable. Enuf said.

For me what makes this show funny is watching ' Bones ' deadpan as set up by the other actors. This episode gave her a lot to deadpan with. I wonder what the outtakes were like, she had to be cracking up.

Another reviewer was upset at the choice of guest star. Get over it. For this part he was well cast. Some other shows he's been in, not so much. If he annoys you that much, don't watch the episode to begin with. His name is right up front with the credits.

The other thing I love about the show is giving us what we love in forensics cop shows while laughing at the pomposity of them. Lately mystery books have been dominated by forensic heroes and recovering alcoholics, don't get me started with the vampires. Please, somebody stake Edward already. This episode is why the only forensic cop I watch anymore is Bones. Come back William Peterson.
