Bones: The Passenger in the Oven

Booth and Brennan travel to China to help identify pre-historic remains, but while on the flight, a human body is found in the plane. In order to solve the crime, Booth and Bones must get equipment from the passengers in order to piece together a device to send evidence back to The Jeffersonian before they lose jurisdiction. Back in the U.S., Hodgins begins to move on after his break-up with Angela, while Angela and Roxie grow closer.

Episode Quotes
Sweets: Do you know Nick Devito?
Kendell: I had lunch once with Danny DeVito.

Charlotte: I didn't hear a gunshot. So it must have been a knifing. I saw Dr. Temperance Brennan, the mystery writer, in first class; I bet she's doing the autopsy. Listen, I was awake the whole time, and anyone who went that way they came back again. So if the victim is a passenger, he or she is in first class. Probably she, because most murder victims are women.
Booth: Wow, you really are into murder, aren't you. (she gives him the measuring tape and tweezers) Thanks.
Charlotte: Wait! (pulls a knitting needle out) Dr. Brennan will need this!
Booth: What's that for?
Charlotte: It's a probe! This is the best flight I've ever been on!

Flight Attendant: Sir. You need to return to coach.
Booth: See, we're uh, we're partners. We like being together.
Flight Attendant: Your sexual relationship's not relevant, sir. This is first class.
Bones: Why does everyone else think we have a sexual relationship when we barely ever touch each other?

Booth: All right. What I want you to do is take off your glasses, shake out your hair, and say, "Mr. Booth, do you know what the penalty is for an overdue book?"
Bones: Why?
Booth: Nevermind.

Eli: Hey, are you two gonna make out?
Booth: Hey, quiet. You lost your right to talk.
Brennan: Why do people always think we're gonna make out?

Booth: Excuse me.
Charlotte: What's going on?
Booth: Listen, would you happen to have a measuring tape and tweezers?
Charlotte: (gasps) There's been a murder! Nadine!
Booth: Shh!
Charlotte: Nadine! They need tweezers for an autopsy! Code Red! Code Red!
