For once, Wendell Bray has trouble concentrating on the case, as he's up for a last checkup to be declared in full cancer remission, and on top finds his favorite nurse keen to treat him to a flirtatious picnic. Booth is forced to concentrate on his traffic exam, after one incident too many, so Aubrey gets to team up with Bones. Piecing together body parts left in dumpsters all over DC the victim is identified as sociology professor Randall Fairbanks, whose behavioral experiments with clueless, misled subjects frustrated some enough to make credible suspects, but not the only ones.

The psychological experiment they show in this episode is very similar to the Milgram experiment, performed by Stanley Milgram from Yale University in 1961. The result mentioned in the episode, 66% of the people would deliver the maximum voltage, is the actual result from the original experiment. This experiment would be considered unethical in the 21st century based on the psychological harm it causes to the subject instigating the shocks. See more
