Bones: The Man in the S.U.V.

A car bomb leaves the driver and cafe patrons dead and injures several others. When it is discovered that the car belonged to a prominent Middle Eastern man with ties to the government, Booth has Dr. Brennan help him in the identification of the driver. The clues that Brennan and her team uncover lead them in a shocking twist -- they must track down a terrorist before they strike again.

Episode Quotes
Hodgins: Targeting everyday places causes panic. People stay home. The economy is crippled. It's Terrorism 101, man.

Hodgins: We have his detergent brand, cologne, and shampoo. He died a well-groomed man.

Hodgins: I graduated top of my class, Rhodes Scholar, the youngest member inducted into the Academy of Physical Sciences, but she still makes me feel like a cretin.
Zack: She apologized to me.

Brennan: Vegetable oil will help loosen the seared body parts from the metal. No different than steak in a pan that sticks.

Angela: I think he likes you. God, if I were you, I'd buy a ticket on that ride.

Booth: We're dealing with someone here who devalues an entire culture. Terrorizing people by using God to justify mass murder.
Brennan: You're making it personal. That doesn't help.
Booth: It is personal, Bones. All of us die a little bit on ones like this.

Brennan: If you see him, will you shoot?
Booth: Well, he might not have the bomb.
Brennan: You don't believe that.
Booth: I'm not taking out a target Bones, unless I'm sure.
Brennan: Is that how you make it easier? Calling him a target?
Booth: You know, you really picked an odd time to have this conversation.

Brennan: He thinks just because Masruk's wife started working out and had a little makeover, she's having an affair.
Angela: Hmm, and how long were they married?
Booth: Eleven years.
Angela: I'm with him.
Brennan: There's no concrete proof.
Angela: Boobs perkier?
Booth: Mmm hmm.
Brennan: I don't believe this. If you're so sure, then why didn't you confront her?
Angela: Because if she and her boyfriend were involved, she would warn him.
Booth: Very good.
Angela: I'm a constant surprise.

Angela: Bottom line, I still think Brennan has a shot with Booth.
Hodgins: But she says she's not interested.
Angela: Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

Angela: (about Brennan) Please, she’s been sleeping alone for months! She has enough pent up sexual energy to power a small mid-western city.

Episode Goofs
When Booth, Bones, and Angela are at Wong Foo's midway through the episode, people enter the restaurant. However, in the next shot, they have disappeared.

After shooting Farid, Booth holsters his gun and then leans on the railing. In the next shot, he is still holding the gun.
