Bones: The Girl in the Fridge

Brennan's former professor and ex-boyfriend Dr. Michael Stires makes a surprise visit to the Jeffersonian while he is in town interviewing for a job. While Brennan and Dr. Stires are at dinner together, Booth makes a gruesome discovery -- the remains of a young woman decomposing in a refrigerator. As Booth and Brennan investigate the case, Brennan is called as an expert witness at the trial, but is shocked when the defense brings in a very familiar expert of their own.

Episode Quotes
Brennan: I was just saying, I, myself, feel no inclination toward pain or dominance when it comes to sex.
Booth: Are you sure?
Brennan: Yeah, I'm sure.
Booth: Because you can be very bossy.

Angela: Don't talk to me about traditional, okay. I've dated circus people.

Brennan: We tell the truth. We do not flinch. You flinched, Michael.

Brennan: The "ex" in ex-lover is not a variable. It's a constant.

Brennan: Michael wanted to look at our equipment.
Angela: I'm gonna let that one go.

Brennan: The jury likes Michael better than they like me. Apparently, that's a problem. Are they stupid?
Dr. Goodman: Compared to you, yes. However, compared to you, most of the world is a little stupid.

Booth: Rather than open it myself and risk being trashed by you for contaminating evidence, I decided to bring the whole refrigerator to you.

Dr. Goodman: Agent Booth, you're accessing your inner squint.

Brennan: I've never gotten a B and I never will.
Booth: That's my girl.

Angela: Okay, a guy that gets her to stop working? This I have to see.

Brennan: What? Is it so odd to see me with a man?

Zack: Good way to remove the victim without being detected. The rubber gaskets seal in the odor.
Angela: Maybe the company should use that in their ads.

Angela: (to Brennan and Zack) I love it when you two impersonate earthlings.



Episode Goofs
When Brennan talks to Goodman, she places the pen in her hand down on the table in front of her. In the next scene, she places the same pen down again.

The name on Dr. Barragan’s desk reads Dr. Nicholas Skinner, M.D.



Cultural References
Booth: ...without imagining Moe knocking their heads together.

Moe was a member of the famed Three Stooges. The other two were Larry and Curly (then Shemp). The Three Stooges were famous for their tempers and acts of violence towards each other whether it be with their own hands or anything they could swing at each other.
