I think the most interesting phrase was Booth's "It doesn't matter what I believe--it matters what I can prove." The diner scene discusses faith (belief) versus evidence (proof).

Cool, Amanda. Thanks for that.

Interesting that Booth "believes" he loves Brennan -- but he can't prove it as in his gut vs Sweets's brain scans. Lots to have fun with here.

not really a quote, but i loved the part when hodgins hit himself in the face with the nun chuck. i cracked up! i wonder if he did that for real, cause it looked like it could have broken his nose or something

I liked the whole discussion with Bones and the psychiatrist, great acting, I wonder if Bones will respect sweets more

Very interesting about the belief vs. proof...thank you Amanda and historynut!

Not a line, but I LOOOVVED the smile Booth gave Bones in the car when she laughed at his joke.

totally agreee with you!
or just the way she laughed :) haha
I love when she says stuff about him joking or she explains her own jokes, "it's a joke... get it?"
ahhh why can't they be together yet?

Some lines from this very episode:

Brennan: What, you're afraid that if God smites me with lightning, you could get hit?
Booth: Yeah, I'm usually standing right beside you.


Booth: Car, could you please get us there a little faster?
Brennan: No, the accelerator is not voice activated. It's foot activated like a normal car.
Booth: Right. [Booth grins]
Brennan: Oh. You're joking.
Booth: Yeah.
Brennan: That's funny.
Love Booth's face here!


Angela: Turns out Neal's the only missing guy with horns. Go figure.
Brennan: Where was his last known residence?
Arastoo: I'm guessing Mr. Stephen King's basement.


Dr. Copeland: You're Dr. Sweets?
Sweets: Mm-hmm.
Dr. Copeland: You sounded more experienced on the phone.
[Booth laughs]
Brennan: He means you sounded older.
Sweets: I know.
Booth: Love it.
Sweets: It's not that funny, Booth.
Sweets: I think it is.
Sweets is calling Seeley "Booth" and not "Agent Booth". I think I never heard that before from Sweets.


Brennan: So you have faith that you will retain your faith?
[Booth nods]
Brennan: Why?
Booth: Because, Bones, the sun will come up and tomorrow's a new day.
Brennan: I know that feeling.
Booth: Really?
Brennan: Mm-hmm.
Booth: You know what it feels like to get your faith back?
Brennan: When I see effects and I'm unable to discern the cause, my faith in reason and consequences is shaken.
Booth: Then what happens?
Brennan: Two plus two equals four. I put sugar in my coffee and it tastes sweet. The sun comes up because the world turns. These things are beautiful to me. There are mysteries I will never understand, but everywhere I look, I see proof that for every effect there is a corresponding cause, even if I can't see it. I find that reassuring.
Booth: And life is good again.
Brennan: Life is very good.
Booth: Yes, it is.


Dr. Copeland: I've listened to you take shots at my profession, and that's okay... I'm a big boy, a tolerant man... but I want you to think about something. I spend every working hour
of every day trying to help people who are living in hell. That's an honorable way to spend a life, perhaps more honorable than figuring out what happened to dead people who are already beyond pain and suffering.
Brennan: Intentions, however misguided, do count. I understand that.
Dr. Copeland: I hope you won't think I'm too picky when I point out that that wasn't an actual apology. But perhaps it's the best you can manage.
[and they shake hands]

Booth naming the victim "hellboy".

Another word for fascinating -- "creepy". - Booth

"Knock yourself out....I did.
What are you...some kind of Persian Ninja?" Hodgins - that scene was so funny.

Other explanations for Evil out ther -- "Chemical imbalance, poor role models, and ignorance" - Brennan

I liked watching Cam skitter around Aristoo, though his little plotline felt kind of patched-together for me. :|

Also loved the nun-chuck scene (my family lol'd there) and the lines that Lily brought up. All in all, a fairly quotable episode, I thought. :D

Brennan: "Zeus apparently had better aim than your God" (LOL)

Sweets: "I'm an excellent loony-bin crazy-ass sifter" (Poor guy!)

Liesa said...

I loved Hodgins' Line.
"But i don't wanna be the great satan..I want to be the minor demon!" LOL
