Episode Quotes
Nigel-Murray: Forgive me, doctors but, is his skin moving?
Cam: Ooh. God, that's strange.
Brennan: Insect activity?
Hodgins: Never seen insects like that. Except in "Alien."
Nigel-Murray: I'm secreting adrenaline.

Deputy: First bungee accident I ever saw.
Booth: Probably because you're 10.

Booth: Driving a machine like this is like making love -- you have to go gently.
Bones: I go more for passionate and uninhibited rather than gentle.

Booth: I thought the guy was dead.
Brennan: He is dead but his skin was moving.
Booth: Wait a second. Moving skin on a dead guy?
Brennan: Yes! Then he started foaming.
Booth: Wait a second. Foaming? Okay what would cause that? Too much beer or, maybe he ate soap?!
Brennan: You should stop using cartoons as a scientific reference.

Brennan: He lied to you. You should go talk to Buddy.
Booth: Yes, I -- I should.
Brennan: Then, tell Miss Lust to get up.
Strawberry Lust: I think that might be a little embarassing right now. Huh baby?
Booth: That's my gun.

Sweets: That's it? Ugh, okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. You were right, she wasn't ready.
Booth: No, she wasn't ready, Sweets. But we found out something really really important.
Sweets: What, the women bowls?

Angela: Okay, I'm ready to start the facial reconstruction. (sees the body) Gross. Wow, this is really gross. I'm gonna come back.
