Episode Quotes
Angela: I'm fine about Roxie. People come and go in life.
Hodgins: What did she say, aside from so long?
Angela: Basically she said she wants somebody who doesn't just live in the moment but who considers the future. What's wrong with the moment?
Hodgins: Nothing.
Angela: But?
Hodgins: But it's nice every once in a while to think about the future.
Angela: So let me get this straight. To be together, then it has to be all about the future.
Hodgins: Yeah.
Angela: So, this, right now, this is together?
Hodgins: It was a moment. A great moment. But, all great moments are passed.

Brennan: If you had released the remains to me when I had asked and Mr. Vaziri had removed the flesh, then we'd have never have found cause of death.
Cam: Thank you.
Brennan: Why are you thanking me? I'm simply stating a fact.
Cam: I'm thanking you for stating the fact that you were wrong.
Brennan: Oh. You're welcome.

Brennan: Despite the fact that you aren't, a real medical doctor you have been quite helpful. Thanks.
Dr. Fitts: Oh you're welcome. Oh and, by the way, you aren't a real medical doctor either.
Booth: Ouch.

Brennan: Pregnancy is unlikely without intercourse.
Booth: Yeah, thanks, Bones.

Booth: You have got to be kidding me. Didn't this school ever hear of sex education?
Brennan: Well if so there's gaps in the curriculum.
Booth: That's for sure.

Angela: Have you ever noticed that a sunset looks more beautiful when you share it with someone that you care about?
Brennan: No, I haven't, but I'll pay better attention next time.

Cam: Some of us take coffee breaks, some of us take smoke breaks, Mr. Vasiri takes a spiritual break.
Brennan: Who smokes?
Cam: Nobody. Not very often, anyway. Just very rarely, in times of great stress.
