Episode continuityEdit


  • Caroline Julian: Maybe Judge Judy needs a prosecutor.
  • Hodgins: Squints of the world unite!
  • Brennan: If the thing that made me me is gone, who am I?

Booth: “You’re the woman I love. You’re the woman who kissed me outside a pool hall when it was pouring rain. You took me to shoot Tommy guns on Valentine’s Day. That’s who you are. You’re the one who proposed to me with a stick of beef jerky in her hand even though you’re a vegetarian. You’re the Roxie to my Tony, and the Wanda to my Buck. Who else is gonna sing ‘Hot Blooded’ with me? And besides…we’re way better than Mulder and Scully.”

Brennan: “I don’t know what that means.”

Booth: "I don’t care if you know about the bones or we know how to solve crimes. All I know is that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. This is you. Temperance Brennan. You’re my partner. Don’t forget that."
