Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Anthropologically speaking those girls have grown up in a culture that reinforces the sad truism that - women cannot count on men.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Don't say "men" like that. Men don't like a world without responsibility.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: But - that boy whom those young girls chose as their sperm donor, he seemed... more than happy with the arrangement.

Good man
28 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Booth is a good man.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, it's soon learned that not only was she pregnant, but so were several of her volleyball friends. It's discovered that one man, a very unlikely "stud" is found to be the father of several. As Booth and Brennan try to discover the truth, they learn some hard things about this pregnancy outbreak and Clinton.

We also meet the intern, the Muslum (sorry, I don't know how to spell his name). His story develops over the years and he becomes an important part of the show in later seasons (though I never really cared for that particular story line).

At the end, Booth does a "man up" speech that's very touching. I can picture him having such talks with his children when they do wrong. He has the right tone and facial expression to keep them on the straight and narrow. I think Brennan's very proud of him.
