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?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: The body lipids combined with the packing material and transformed the tissue into an adipocerous gel.
Dr. Clark Edison: Yeah, I'm pretty sure my Middle School served this for dessert.
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.
Tom: [Ronald opens a box and finds some remains] That's an animal. I found a dead cat once. Early retirement is looking good.
[Ronald finds a skull and screams]
Tom: That's it. I retire. Welcome to the US Postal Service, kid.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: This is certainly a first for me.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Me too. I have never seen this part of the Post Office before.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Yes, I thought they sent the dismembered bodies to a completely different place.
Dr. Clark Edison: Look, there was a whole lot of activity going on there. And I was just thinking - maybe I could help you out. Not meaning like that- because I would never...
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Tender and swollen breasts are common in the third trimester.
Dr. Clark Edison: Of course.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's very uncomfortable. My bra size has increased by 2 cups.
Dr. Clark Edison: I hadn't noticed.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's quite obvious. You should be more observant, Dr. Edison.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, I see now. You're much larger now.
[Clears his throat]
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Good work, Dr. Edison.
Dr. Clark Edison: But I have no answers.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You will. I wouldn't hire a fool.
Dr. Clark Edison: Suppose that's true. Thank you. And I'm glad to see that your breasts seem to be feeling better.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I beg your pardon.
Dr. Clark Edison: Before you said I should observe.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Look, you were my father, all right? He was never there for me. You raised me not him. He was never there, understand? You don't have to defend him to me.
Hank Booth: I wasn't! I was just trying to remind you that he was my son. Good or bad - he was my son. I gotta tell you, I'm a little disappointed that you don't seem to see the hurt I'm feeling.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm sorry, Pops.
Hank Booth: You don't think I feel responsible? I raised him. Don't you feel responsible for your boy? Now Seeley, we're family, we gotta get through this together.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: You're right. Anything for you, Pops. Anything.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: So it seems like we might have something to talk about after all.
Sheila Burnside: Okay, that doesn't mean anything.
Bob Fisher: Do not talk! Not... one... word!
Sheila Burnside: We did it a few times, but it didn't mean anything.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Where was your husband the night Oliver died?
Sheila Burnside: ...Hugh wouldn't kill anyone.
Bob Fisher: I hate my job.
Hank Booth: [reading a letter from his son - Seely's father] "I didn't write a letter to Seely because I knew he'd rip up anything I sent him - and he should. If you can find a way. Let him know, I love him. He and Jarod, deserved a better father than me. A father
Hank Booth: a father as good as I had. Thank you for raising him to be the man I could never be."
Dr. Clark Edison: Did you know that cabbage leaves are recommended to smoothe sore breasts? Apparently the phytochemicals in the plant...
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I spent the evening naked so my breasts are actually feeling much better.
Tony Dunson: I have been nonviolent for over 25 years. I-I lost it for 5 minutes. I'd say overall, that's - that's not really bad in the scheme of things, right? Right?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: You know, I really don't want to talk about this.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: But I do. And I might say the wrong thing. But for the time being, we're sharing our lives. And that means you can't shut me out, Booth.
Special Agent Genevieve Shaw: I really, I-I wanted you to know that you could count on me.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Listen to me, Shaw. Get over it. This case is not about you.
Special Agent Genevieve Shaw: What?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: What we do is teamwork. You thinking that the only way I'm gonna respect you is if you hand me this final piece of the puzzle is not teamwork, it's ego. All right?
Special Agent Genevieve Shaw: Okay.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: But you would be able to help Hodgins, Booth could help me... What would you do?
Angela Montenegro: Booth loves you, Brennan - not me. Doesn't matter what anybody else would do. You have to figure out what you can give him - that nobody else can.
