Noel: You want your chart done?
Brennan: No. Stalking. You like ... to stalk people.
Noel: Observe them.

Daisy: You're gonna put in a good word for me right? I mean, wouldn't it be fun if I could be here forever?!

Brennan: It would be good if you called first.
Booth: Well, who knew you were even dating?
Brennan: Well, I wouldn't call it dating. We occasionally make arrangements to spend time together.
Booth: I'm just surprised you're not more picky.
Brennan: My relationship with Mark is purely physical, and I am very satisfied with him in that area. Did you see his chest and his thighs?
