Did You Know?


Several characters exhibit surprise that the twins could have had a sexual life while being conjoined. However Chang and Eng Bunker, conjoined twins from Siam from whom we get the term 'Siamese twins', were not only married, they had 10 and 11 children respectively. They shared one home with a bed built for 4 until their wives (who were sisters) had a falling out, after which Chang and Eng split their time between their wives' houses. See more »


While spouting unrelated facts, Vincent says that the word 'Abracadabra' was first used to treat hay fever. The word is ancient and so it is unknown what it has been used for and when exactly it became popular, as no Aramaic sources survived. Vincent likely alluded to the fact that the first written account links the word to medicine (by Quintus Serenus Sammonicus), but the amulet with the word 'Abracadabra' was believed to aid in case of malaria, not hay fever.

just ridiculous
18 July 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

With each episode, the writers get farther away from the formulaic show ... making booth and brennan circus performers is so pie in the sky, its like a child's whim ... the dialogue between brennan and booth hasn't improved either... they sill sound like a couple of bickering school children ... having brennan repeat how smart she is also detracts from the show because we all know she's supposed to be smart ... i'm not interested any longer
