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

The photo of Seeley Booth on his father's knee was David Boreanaz and his father Dave Roberts. See more »


When Seeley picks up the tickets from the world series you can clearly see their seat numbers; 3 and 4. But when he looks over at the chairs he brought home in an earlier episode the camera focuses seat number 2 and 3 and fades out 1 and 4. IF those even are the seats from the correct row. See more »


Dr. Clark Edison: Okay, this is ridiculous, Dr. Hodgins. Do you think our killer used a thousand year old battle axe?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Hey, a good scientist never assumes anything. Would you like to do the honors?
Dr. Clark Edison: All right.
[Clark uses the battle axe]
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Nope.
Dr. Clark Edison: What else do you have?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Scimitar.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh yeah. That'll do.
