Episode Notes
This episode talks of Blackbeard's treasure buried in a deep hole on Assateague Island, MD. This is a slight parody of what has been dubbed "The Money Pit" The Money Pit is an excavation site, per se, on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, Canada where many have been digging for treasure. Who's treasure may be buried is up for debate. It is speculated that it could be anyone from Captain Kid to Marie Antoinette's jewels to the treasure of the Knights Templar.

Booth, Hodgins, and Zack: (In unison./i]) Pirates!
Angela: It's a guy thing, sweetie.

Temperance: FBI! You're all under arrest.
Bones: Come on, Bones. You don't get to say that. I'm the one with the badge.

Giles Hardewicke: The FBI is involved now?
Bones: You know, murder on federal ground. We like to, ah, poke around a little.

Zack: So you believe in pirates?
Hodgins: Pirates aren't Santa, Zack. They did exist. They did have treasures and they did bury them.
Zack: Ya know, I did have an eye patch when I was six.
Hodgins: Who didn't, my friend? Who didn't?

Temperance: Did you find my bones?
Booth: Ooo, maybe you just wanna, ya know, chill a little.

Cultural References
Booth: ...and the, ah, Golden Goose keep,... pfft, pfft,... laying those eggs.

The Golden Goose was a character in the fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk. The goose was owned by the Giant at the top of the beanstalk and laid golden eggs. Jack attempts to steal the goose from the Giant.

Temperance: That was the Three Musketeers.

The Three Musketeers is a novel, written by Alexandre Dumas in 1844, about the adventures of Musketeers, Aramis, Athos, and Porthos, and a young Musketeer hopeful, d'Artagnan. The novel and the characters have since been adapted and reworked through the years to new novels and films.
