Episode Quotes
Booth: So he was killed around that area with something like that thing.
Brennan: That is very imprecise.
Booth: Works for me.

Brennan: I thought you would be with Booth.
Cam: Questioning people isn't, really my thing. Most of the time I just want to beat them until they tell me what I want to hear.
Brennan: I know, it gets frustrating and hitting can often be quite effective.
Clark: And you both work with the Justice Department.
Brennan: Yes.
Clark: Ironic.

Angela: (to Hodgins) Hey, you want to stay and, have a drink? (Cam snaps her fingers) Oh, yeah. We hate men.

Booth: Did you know that giraffes can weigh up to two tons?
Brennnan: Yes. Everyone knows that.
Booth: And they sleep less than two hours a day.
Brennan: That I did not know.
Booth: Yes! Pinky stumps The Brain!

Cam: Nice to have you back Dr. Edison. Wasn't sure we'd see you again.
Clark: Dr. Brennan assured me that I could count on a strictly professional atmosphere.
Brennan: I admire your focus and dedication to your work, Dr. Edison.
Clark: Thoracolumbar fascia has been eaten.
Cam: No stomach contents for me to analyze because the tiger ate the stomach.
Clark: Ah, don't blame the tiger. Animals shouldn't be confined for human amusement.
Hodgins: A zoo hater?
Clark: And a vegan.
Hodgins: Oh. Someone's revealing their plant-based personal life.

Clark: Angela.
Angela: Clark. Hello.
Clark: I would like you to meet my romantic partner, Dr. Nora Oldhouse.
Angela: Hello, romantic partner.
Clark: Yes, we're romantically involved. Together. She and I.
Nora: Clark, she heard you.
Clark: Nora, these are not like regular people. It is best to be very, very clear with them.

Brennan: We're scientists. We can't quantify or rely on our emotions. They're arbitrary and indeterminate.
Cam: We know people through our feelings, Dr. Brennan. You trust Booth because of how you feel.
Brennan: No, I trust Booth because of past actions.
Cam: And faith in the future. I'm sorry, but feelings are important. Even to you.

Brennan: No lions?
Hodgins: Not in the whole park.
Booth: There are tigers. How much difference can there be between lion urine and tiger urine?
Brennan: There are no stripes in lion urine.

Cultural References
Booth: Yes! Pinky stumps The Brain!
