They said Patricia, the victim, was on estrogen, progesterone, and spironolactone, which is an anti-androgen. However, Patricia was post-operative, which means that she would not have been on, nor would have even needed, the anti-androgen anymore. After sex reassignment surgery, or even an orchiectomy, a transwoman can discontinue taking an anti-androgen.
Vincent: The pelvic bone speaks. It says, "I be male."
Cam: The pelvic bone can say whatever it wants to say, this part here (pointing) says female.
Vincent: What part's that?
Cam: It's called a vagina.
Booth: Do you think it means anything? She lived her life split in two, then, in death, split in two again.
Brennan: No, I don't think it means anything.
Booth: I didn't think you would.
Brennan: What are you doing?
Booth: I'm praying, keep your voice down!
Brennan: Sorry. You're not a member.
Booth: It's not a gym, Bones.
Brennan: I need a forensic anthropologist in the lab so I can spend my time aiming Agent Booth in the right direction.
Booth: Aiming Agent Booth? Like a hose?
Hodgins: Does Brennan put "Mr." in front of your name?
Hodgins: It's her very subtle way of saying you're not a doctor.
Vincent: Did you know that women blink twice as often as men?
Cam: Which might be useful information if the fish hadn't eaten our victim's eyelids.
Vincent: Can I ask you something?
Hodgins: Is there any way to say no?
Vincent: What ever happened to whoever it was who used to work here, before me?
Hodgins: He joined forces with a serial killer who was the last in a long line of cannibalistic murderers specializing in knocking off members of secret societies and building skeletons out of their body parts.
Vincent: Wow. I -- I hope that doesn't happen to me.
Booth: Would you like me better if I was a woman?
Brennan: No I would not.
Brennan: I'd be jealous that you might be prettier than I am.
Booth: I would be too. I'd be hot! Smokin' hot!
