King of the Lab - Trivia

I'm not sure how this one will turn out - it could be fast or could take awhile, there could be one clear-cut winner or it could be a collaborative effort:

Name every episode, and scene within, where Booth calls Brennan "Temperance," either to her directly or in reference to her. Introducing Dr. Temperance Brennan does not count.
Remember, anons, leave a name/initial for credit!

I only recall Woman in Limbo where Brennan is seeig through the evidence bag of her mother's case and looking at the dolphin beltbuckle and Booth in fact calls her by the first name.

Hmm from season 1:...I recall the Woman in Limbo and then The Man on the Fairway, when she asked him if he would investigate her parents disapearance and he says: I´m proud you asked, Temperance.
And Boy in the tree, when he says: "You got this one right Temperance" when she talked to the murdered boys mom.
From Season 3: Verdict in the story when he told her to put her heart in overdrive...
I dont remember any from season 2 and we didnt get season 4 in central europe yet, but i hope i got at least half of them right ;)

Jeannie said...

Hm, maybe as add-on to Akasha's list (I think you might have actually covered them all), when he's on the stand in Verdict and says: "Temperance Brennan, I've stood over death with her...". Not sure if that counts as an extra scene, though.

I'm pretty sure he calls her Temperance in the pilot in the scene in his office when he tells her that he got a warrant for the Senator's place.

He says something to the effect of: "Is that something you don't like to talk about, families? (She turns to leave) Temperance, partners share things. It builds trust."

Damn!!! I forgot the Pilot...:)

Louise said...

Yanks in The UK - he calls her 'Lady Temperance'. I think that's one of the few recent ones ... most of the other times were quite early on in the series.

He also calls her Temperance at the end of Hero in the Hold. "whatever you have to tell yourself Temperance" so something like that.

Season 1, Pilot: In Booth’s office – talking about families. “That something you don’t like to talk about? Families? Temperance”

Season 1, Boy in the Tree: After Brennan tells the mother that her son was a good man. “Very impressive Temperance. You got that one right”

Season 1, Man on the Fairway. In Wong Foo’s after she gives Booth her parents’ file. “I’m proud you asked, Temperance.”

Season 1, The Woman in Limbo: In the lab after they figure out that the woman is Brennan’s mom. “Temperance. Go home”

Season 3, The Verdict in the Story: On Brennan’s couch before the brain/heart speech. “You're not Dr. Brennan today. You're Temperance.” – not sure that counts! And on the stand, “Temperance Brennan – I've worked with this woman. I've stood over death with her, I've faced down death with her.”

Louise said...

Re Hero in the Hold ... I think he actually says "Whatever you need to tell yourself there Bones".

Jeannie said...

I think Louise is right about Hero. I heard the same thing.

Shep said...

I think this may be it. I can't recall any other ones. When the post first went up I was going to say Pilot, but I had to get to class.

Bok Choy said...

You all beat me to it...great job! :)

I think it's very endearing that Booth is the only person to call her "Temperance" in full (versus "Tempe") during those poignant moments.

Leanne said...

I definitely agree with Bok Choy. It's also that they save those times for really special moments where you'll always remember that special gravity in Booth's voice.

I know this isn't connected to the King of the Lab section, but I have been trying to find out what exactly Booth says a scene from the Graft in the Girl episode of Season 1!!
It's around the 30th min, when Bones and Booth are back in the lab after talking to the funeral home director.

Bones: So, I looked it up on the internet - you can get $10,000 for grafts on the black market.
Booth: (chuckle)10 Grand? Geez, my bones are worth more than that.
Bones: What makes you so special?
Booth: 3.... (blanks out)

What does he say in response?!? I'm not too good at lip-reading so it's been driving me nuts for a while now :D Any clue to the mystery quote would be nice!

Here's what Booth says:

BOOTH: Three glasses of milk a day, I work out and I eat right.

I like to use this site called twiztv, which has scripts for a bunch of different tv shows. I've found it really helpful when I'm looking for a specific quote or something :)

Here's the link for all their Bones transcripts, if you want it:

Otherwise, you just go to and you can access all of their stuff!

Hope this helps!

Thanks, ggjunkie33!
Now I shall go trawling for my favorite quotes while pretending to read up for classes :D

It's interesting that Booth has never called her Tempe its always been Bones or Temperance and he mostly says that when he is being particulurly sensitive towards her. Brennan has never called Booth Seeley at least not from my knowledge.

Cheryl said...

He calls her Temperance twice in TBITT. The first time u guys already mentioned...s'thing like

You got that one right Temperance.

The 2nd is possibly the only time he's called her Temperance without it being an emotionally touching or serious moment:

Bones: I’ve been thinking about your whole something stinks aptitude. I think you have a subconscious knack for reading body language…stress in the voice …other subtle but discencernible indicators. It’s not mysterious but it is impressive and in the future I will try to record it in an appropriate degree of objective worth.

Booth: Thank you Temperance. Appreciate that. So, uh, what part of this is mine did you not understand? What? Do you want me to say it in Latin?
