Episode Quotes
Sweets: (to Brennan about Angela) You know our very work shows us that, that those people, that call the world an abattoir - a slaughterhouse - they have a point. Now you handle that knowledge by imposing this, gossamer web of rationality over the ugliness. Angela has a very different way of handling. Sometimes you don't save the world, Dr. Brennan. Sometimes you just make your friend happy.
