Bones: The Verdict in the Story
Max goes on trial for the alleged murder of FBI Deputy Director Robert Kirby, and the Jeffersonian team members, minus Brennan, are called as expert witnesses for the prosecution, keenly aware that their testimony could put Max on Death Row. Brennan, serving as a forensics advisor for the defense, must rely not only on her expertise as an anthropologist but also on her dedication to her family to find a way to exonerate her father.
We learn Sweets received his undergraduate degree at University of Toronto, his Master's in abnormal psychology at Temple University, and a Doctorate degree in clinical psychology and behavioral analysis from Columbia University.

Caroline: Excuse me. What is so funny?
Brennan: (trying not to laugh) Nothing.
Caroline: I should hope not because there's a dead body deserving of respect right in front of you. What happened to him? (Brennan starts laughing) I did not know she could laugh.
Angela: Miss Julian, I'm not taking the stand.
Cam: You have to.
Angela: Look I'm not going to tell anyone else what to do here but I'm not testifying.
Brennan: (looking at the skeleton) How could this happen?
Booth: Um, maybe he was rolled up in a carpet.
Brennan: Where's the carpet?
Booth: Well it rotted away, you know, with the meaty parts.
Brennan: I'm fine.
Sweets: If you were fine you'd be balled up in the corner weeping or semi-catatonic.
Brennan: (to Booth) Does that sound fine to you?
Judge Haddoes: Excuse me, Agent Booth, I would like you to switch seats with Dr. Saroyan. You Dr. Brennan, please switch seats with your brother.
Judge Haddoes: You don't whisper as quietly as you think you do.
Brennan: Clark is the last forensic anthropologist that I'd want to be up against in a court of law.
Russ: What about that genius kid at your lab?
Max: With the oversized eyes and the toaster head, that guy?
Clark: Sorry if my normal-sized head and eyes diminish your confidence.
Booth: Could Bones have killed Kirby? Temperance Brennan, I've worked with this woman, I've stood over death with her, I've faced death down with her. Sweets is brilliant, he is, but he's wrong. She could not have done this.
Sweets: Doctor Brennan is hyperrational. She's capable of rationalizing almost anything.
Lawyer: Including murder?
Sweets: It is the danger of the totally rational human being.
