Trivia

There are special scene transitions for this episode, cards and poker chips spread across the screen to go from the Vegas scenes to the scenes at the Jeffersonian. The crazy socks that Booth has on in this episode was a homage to David Boreanaz. In real life, he loves to wear crazy and bold socks, even with suits. David Boreanaz was also an underground fighter in the Angel Season 1 episode "The Ring". In that show, he was made to fight against his will and was almost defeated in his main fight against a much larger foe. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance Brennan: Oh my god! I completely forgot you can't be here, Booth. You're a degenerate gambler.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Former gambler, okay? Not degenerate. I've been through the program, okay? And you know, he's on the move!
Dr. Temperance Brennan: What if you get a sudden urge to gamble while you're here? It's like sending an alcoholic to a distillery. Do you need to sit down?
