Bones: The Finger in the Nest

When Parker finds a severed finger in a bird's nest while playing with Booth, the team gets together to find the rest of the body. After the body is found in Jefferson Memorial Park, it is revealed that the death was a murder. With the help of a new grad student, the team is able to identify the body as a local veterinarian with a gambling problem. This fact leads them to an illegal dog fighting ring where, with the help of Cesar Millan, the team is able to gather enough evidence to track down the killer.

Episode Quotes
Sweets: You know where to find me if you wish to discuss anything.
Hodgins: Yeah the problem isn't finding you, it's avoiding you.

Bones: When I was five years old I went next door to visit our neighbor Mrs. Walkey and she was dead, sitting at the kitchen table. And I'm alright.
Booth: You spend your life with skeletons.

Booth: (about the opossum) There it goes.
Brennan: Uh, you should go get him.
Booth: What do I look like? Ranger Rick?

Sweets: Do you, uh, do you often entertain suicidal thoughts?
Hodgins: No, I'm more homicidal in nature.

Hodgins: I'd say King of the Lab, but that just depresses me.

Booth: Parker had a nightmare.
Bones: About severed fingers?
Booth: No. It was the singing frog.
Bones: I don't see the connection but then I'm one of those people who thinks, if you dream about a banana, it's probably just a banana.

Brennan: (about Ripley) He reminds me of you.
Booth: Me?
Brennan: He's got warm and reassuring brown eyes and he's capable of great violence.
Booth: Hey, great, thanks a million.



Cultural References
Booth: Parker had a nightmare.
Bones: About severed fingers?
Booth: No. It was the singing frog.
Bones: I don't see the connection but then I'm one of those people who thinks, if you dream about a banana, it's probably just a banana.

Brennan's reference about a banana just being a banana is an allusion to Freud's famous quote: "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

Booth: What do I look like? Ranger Rick?

Ranger Rick is a character from a children's nature magazine published by the National Wildlife Federation.

(to Angela and Brennan)
Booth: Okay, you two don't get all, you know, Xena Princess Warrior on me, okay?

Xena Princess Warrior is the title character from Xena: Warrior Princess.
