Bones: The Skull in the Desert
While on vacation in the desert, Angela calls Brennan for help in identifying a skull who she fears belongs to her boyfriend, Kirk, who disappeared while on a photo shoot. When traces of peyote are found in the victim's hair, Booth believes the death is drug-related, but clues lead them in another direction -- a counterfeiting ring.
Booth: Ok, who are you, Dr. Phil?
Temperance: Who's Dr. Phil? Some kind of expert?
Booth: Pff, he'd like to think so.
Angela: I mean it’s not that I actually think that the skull is Kirk’s, but I mean, if you could just look at it and just tell me that it isn’t, then I could stop worrying about him being dead and just be mad at him for being a flaky artist.
Booth: What do you want me to do?
Temperance: I want you to get Federal on his ass.
Temperance: Wait outside while I get dressed.
Booth: No. Uh-uh. Sun’s been up out there for an hour out there. It’s already the surface of Mercury. I can stand here and close my eyes; eat my donut. It’s the best I can do, okay?
(About the guy holding the rifle on them.)
Temperance: Let’s rush him. He can’t shoot us both.
Booth: How about I just show him my badge so we both survive, alright?
Hodgins: Since you’re only Dr. Brennan’s assistant, without her, you don’t’ carry that much weight around here.
Zack: I’m telling Dr. Goodman.
Booth: Ya know, where I come from, when you say you’re driving a ways, ya know, it means 45 minutes.
Angela: Out here, it means 4 hours.
Temperance: We’ve been driving 5.
Sheriff Dawes: I maybe should have said quite a ways.
Temperance:How long do you think we’ll survive out here if the sheriff doesn’t come back?
Booth: 3 days, max.
Angela: How far are we from the highway?
Booth: 5 days, minimum.
Temperance: I don’t like that math.
Temperance: It doesn’t make sense that the Sheriff brings us to the scene of the crime and then leaves us to die, doesn’t it?
Booth: One God forsaken part of the desert is just as good as the other God forsaken part of the desert.
Temperance: Only Angela could get a ride in the middle of nowhere.
Temperance: …because nothing in this universe happens just once, Angela, nothing. Infinity goes in both directions. There is no unique event, no singular moment.
Angela: I don’t know what that means.
This is a nice switch of characters. Usually, it is Temperance that is told something that she doesn’t understand, usually something about pop culture, and replies that she doesn’t know what that means.
