After a skull and decomposing hands are found in a dumpster, the team must not only solve the crime but also search for the rest of the victim's remains. Identified as Ray Raminsky, the victim turns out to be a bounty hunter in search of Charles Braverman, a man indicted for the murder of a co-worker. Meanwhile, Brennan is asked by Professor Bunsen Jude "The Science Dude" if he can shoot an episode of his children's show from The Jeffersonian Lab with Brennan as his special guest. Brennan initially turns him down, but is surprised when he makes her a deal she can't refuse, so she takes him on as a new "squintern." As the team pieces together the details of the crime, they discover that they are not alone in the hunt for Braverman and find themselves in a chase with an unexpected suspect.

Angela Montenegro: If I have a daughter, I'm gonna name her Temperance.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You are?
Angela Montenegro: I mean, we won't call her that. It's awful. Maybe it'll be her middle name. But - I want her to love you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You love me.
Angela Montenegro: Yes, but not everyone is as willing to look as hard for your inner child as I am. And this kid is half Hodgins, remember?

jumped the dude
14 October 2010 | by pensmanSee all my reviews

I am not sure why but when David Alan Grier is the guest star it's a sign that a show is in its last season. Perhaps it's because I don't see Grier as funny but over the top. I admit he has a considerable resume; but it isn't a winning resume or perhaps I just don't get him. Regardless, this is not a winning episode for a rather solid series. It begins interesting enough with Bones, Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan, indicating if she plotted a murder she would be able to commit the perfect crime. After that interesting premise which is completely ignored for the rest of the episode, the rest of the episode can easily be ignored. It is only Patricia Belcher as Caroline Julian who provides any interest. Perhaps her character should have "CJ the attorney dudette." Bill Nye the Science Guy might go into hiding after this oblique homage.
