Episode Quotes
Booth: Anyone else work here late?
Gary Flannery: You kidding? I mean, when that clock hits six it's like the running of the bulls, especially on Friday.

Angela: So I need some advice.
Sweets: I have office hours, Ms. Montenegro.

Fisher: My grad thesis explored the effect of falls on human bone. I got the idea at my summer job.
Cam: I'm afraid to ask.
Fisher: Suicide hotline.
Cam: Were you ... for or against?

Fisher: Do you think the stain is relevant to the case?
Hodgins: Before I can answer that, I need to know what it is.
Fisher: I get it. We live our lives in darkness, hoping for a sun that seldom shines-
Hodgins: Go away Fisher.

Brennan: (about Fisher) The depressed intern is quite clever.

Cam: Have you considered Prozac, Mr. Fisher?
Fisher: Already on it.
Cam: Then double your dose 'cause you're bringing me down. And that's hard to do 'cause I've worked with death for years and you're makin' it all look like good times now. So get it together okay? Eeyore.
