Episode Quotes
Sweets: Would you like to accompany me?
Gordon: To what end?
Sweets: Double teamed by a psychologist and a chef? It'll be epic.

Sweets: I believe that as a reaction to the childhood traumas of abuse and abandonment, Dr. Brennan utilizes her intellect to armor herself from intense levels of emotion like love.
Gordon: And Booth?
Sweets: Well, subconsciously he's sensitive to her vulnerability. He knows that acting upon his feelings for her would amount to a kind of, assault.
Gordon: I couldn't agree with you more.
Sweets: So, Booth not shooting straight is simply what? A manifestation of his phallic frustration?
Gordon: Yeah, well he quite literally can't bring his weapon to bear.
Sweets: Do I even have the right to publish my book and make public what these two can't even admit to themselves?
Gordon: Look you're -- don't ask me. I'm just a chef.

Gordon: I don't think Booth has brain damage.
Sweets: What's his problem?
Gordon: May I ask why, you didn't publish your book on Booth and Brennan?
Sweets: What? Is there a connection between my book and Booth's marksmanship?
Gordon: I believe you didn't publish it because you're afraid of how Brennan and Booth would react to its conclusion.
Sweets: My book concludes that Brennan and Booth are in love with each other.

Sweets: You wanted me to talk to the victim's family with you?
Booth: Yeah I got the twin brother and the uh sister-in-law. They're in the conference room.
Sweets: What are we looking for?
Booth: Lies and guilt, Sweets. What else is there?

Booth: I just need you to help me fire my gun.
Gordon: That sounds desperately phallic. Is this maybe a sexual problem?
Booth: Don't say that. Don't even put that out in the air.

Bones: We're good at this.
Booth: Yah Bones, this is what we do. We're the best.
