BONES pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock's To Catch A Thief in an episode that reimagines the Jeffersonian and FBI teams in 1950s Hollywood. Brennan plays an LAPD detective who's battling sexism on the force, and Booth is a notorious jewel thief who is far more than he seems to be. When Booth is framed for the murder of a rich socialite, he and Brennan team up to clear his name and find the true identity of the murderer - See more here.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents Opening Theme
Alfred Hitchcock Presents Ending Theme
- This is the 200th episode in Bones and 10th episode in the tenth season of Bones. Thus, the title most likely originated from this fact.
- The episode contains references to Hitchcock films:
- The scene where Booth is photographed pulling a knife out of a murder victim's back is an homage to North by Northwest, in which Cary Grant's character does the same.
- Booth's character, a jewel thief framed for murder, seems to be inspired by Cary Grant's character in To Catch a Thief.
- When Brennan visits Booth in his hotel room, there is a set of metal statues of birds on the desk. Hitchcock often had some sort of model birds on some sets in his films.
- While forensic anthropology as a formal field has only existed for about 50 years, the methods have been used to investigate murders for over a century. In the 1950s, when this episode seems to be set in time, investigators would not likely have needed to resort to a paleontologist, and at the very least, it would certainly have not been such a novel idea.
- This is probably the only episode that does not have the Bones theme song in it.
