Bones: Harbingers in the Fountain

Six weeks have passed since Booth and Brennan have seen each other. During this time, Booth has been recovering from brain surgery and Brennan has been busy on a dig in Guatemala. Angela's psychic, Avalon Harmonia, reveals that there are bodies buried under a fountain in DC, but both Booth and Brennan are skeptical when Angela tells them about it. However, when the lead pans out, Booth and Brennan find 11 bodies buried underneath a fountain. Meanwhile, Booth has to deal with side effects of his coma and brain surgery.

Episode Quotes
Avalon: The man whose life you saved is really excited to see you again.
Brennan: No, I don't save lives. People are already dead when I get to them.

Avalon: You two are gonna keep doing things as usual.
Booth: Sometimes you gotta settle for second best.
Avalon: By the way, my cards tell me this all works out eventually.
Booth: Oh. Really?
Brennan: What works out eventually?

(Cam and Booth are discussing the fact that Booth is in love with Brennan)
Booth: Right. Right yeah and uh ... tell Bones how I feel.
Cam: Yes. Except be sure about your feelings because if you crack that shell, and you change your mind she'll, die of loneliness before she'll trust anyone ever again.

Avalon: Dr. Brennan. How are you feeling?
Brennan: Well, they gave me medication. So I feel how I imagine people of average intelligence feel, all the time.

Booth: Ambulance is on the way, okay?
Brennan: Keep the pressure on the wound.
Booth: I got it. I got it. Just relax. Just trust me, alright? I'll take care of you. Shhh, I got you. Breathe. I'll take care of you I'm right here. I'm not going anywhere. I got you baby.

Brennan: If you were reinstated today, then why are you dressed like a furniture mover?
