Storyline

Brennan, intrigued by Phil Jackson's management style, pulls all her interns together as a team for a project worthy of the basketball coach's philosophy. She charges them with identifying remains that have been determined unidentifiable. For the team, however, it turns out that naming the bodies may be the easiest part of their task when one of them is from 9/11 and they must decide if he is a victim or perpetrator.

Have you forgotten

This episode will stand the test of time. For those of us who lived it (I was a major city police officer on 9/11) it was a reminder of what a shift it was. Listening to "the team" recount their memories (especially Wendell) was heart breaking. SPECTACULAR writing and Bones' admission at the end is worth watching to the very last minute.
