Post staff finds several mail boxes filled with goo - actually a chopped-up human corpse. Their address labels were deliberately messed up so as to strand them in a specialized post office, but a code traces them to a local Ship 'n' Print, where one employee is missing and proved to be the victim. Most of his colleagues resigned after jointly winning a fortune in the lottery. Sweets helps cut trough their endless lies. Booth gets a surprise visit from grandpa, on account of the death of Seeley's ever-absent father, which he's most unwilling to discuss. Bones leaves most of the field work to Booth's ambitious FBI cadet Genevieve Shaw, to accommodate her pregnancy, which renders Clark most uncomfortable. Written by KGF Vissers

During the animation of the murder, Angela says that the subclavian artery was nicked. On the images however, it is probably the carotic artery being cut, since the subclavian is much lower, passing underneath the collarbone. See more »


Special Agent Seeley Booth: You really want to help? I got a great idea. What do you say we talk about something else? Let's talk about you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [pause] My breasts are very sore. Would you mind if I spent the evening naked?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Sure, yeah that's fine with me. No complaints here, that's great. See, now, isn't this a better conversation?
