Episode Quotes
Temperance: Booth, are you a nerd?
Booth: First of all, you mean 'geek', and no, I'm not, okay? It's quite normal for an American male to read comics.

(To the Doomsday group.)
Booth: Guys, this is actually a real live woman. Something you don't see everyday.

(Inside the bowling alley.)
Booth: Ya smell that?
Temperance: Yes, I do.
Booth: Ya know what that is, Bones?
Temperance: Wax, popcorn, feet, deodorant,...
Booth: That is America, Bones.

Booth: Ya know. Could you please, maybe just for once, try not to piss everyone off around you?

Temperance: Wait. No, wait. We are allowing the comic book story to generate too many hypotheses.
Hodgins: I only heard the 'go get the bad guy' hypothesis.

Stew Ellis: Dude, Abby's cute in a chick geek kinda way, but she's definitely not that kind of betty you go to the death chamber for.

(To Booth.)
Temperance: He wanted to make a difference in the world before he died.... I told you he was more like you than me.

Episode Goofs
Zack was reading a Sylvester and Tweety comic, not a Bugs Bunny one.
