Bones: The He in the She

When remains are found in the Chesapeake Bay, Booth and Brennan are sent to the scene to investigate. The team has little to go on when only the upper torso is found, complete with breast implants. However, when the lower half is found, everyone realizes their initial assumptions about the victim were incorrect.

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.

Episode Quotes
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?
Vincent: Yes.
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.
Booth: Why?
Brennan: I'd be jealous that you might be prettier than I am.
Booth: I would be too. I'd be hot! Smokin' hot!
