A wine cask sealed years ago by cellar-master Bruce Hanover in Sean Mortenson's well-reputed Virginia winery contains the remains of influential wine critic Spencer Holt. While the forensic team searches for precise cause of death and weapon, the criminal investigation soon digs up possible motives in wine economics and marital infidelity. However the Jeffersonian team is more preoccupied with Bones' announcement she wants a baby, and expect model male Booth to donate the sperm. Sweets had a hard time making them admit the relational significance, but something worse surprises even him.Written by
Stewie was allowed to appear in this episode because Bones & Family Guy (1999) are both owned and broadcast on FOX network channels. See more »
Booth is diagnosed as having a brain tumor when he has hallucinations of Stewie Griffin from "Family Guy". Other instances of Booth's hallucinations are given as further evidence of the tumor, such as his having seen an old military comrade, Teddy Parker, in a previous episode "Hero in the Hold". However, Brennan also saw and interacted with Teddy Parker in that episode. If his appearance were truly a symptom of Booth's tumor, Brennan would not have seen or interacted with him. However, Brennan didn't know the person she talked to was Teddy Parker, so she would think it was Booth's hallucination and therefore a manifestation of the tumor. See more »
Listen, you said you wanted to do this alone because feelings are ephemeral. So is life, Brennan. We're here one minute and then we're gone the next. You should know that better than anybody! If you keep living trying to protect yourself, nothing is ever going to touch you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan:
Sweets said that it's not his job to tell somebody what they're feeling or how they should live their life.

The problem with this series is the story editor, janet lin ... she seems bent on changing the direction of the major characters to the brink of disaster ... i find it intolerable that brennan is so rigid in her beliefs and assessments, which means to me she isn't growing like a truly intelligent being, rather regressing into childish behavior ... and the psychiatrist is barely out of puberty yet giving adult advice based on conjecture and a bad childhood ... its all hogwash
