Notes Edit

  • Brennan mentions having followed metal bands since she investigated the case involving the heavy metal band Skalle--this is a direct reference to the episode "Mayhem on a Cross," in which she investigated said case.

Quotes Edit

  • Hodgins: [The kids] created an exothermic reaction? How long was the carbon snake?
    Cam: Twelve feet, why?
    Hodgins: Lucky son of a bitch.
    Cam: Excuse me?
    Hodgins: Sorry, it's just--whenever I've thought of my own death, that is exactly how I've always wanted to go. Man, this day just keeps getting better and better!
  • Brennan: He looks like Eddie of Iron Maiden. Not the torture instrument of historic myth, but the English heavy metal band.
    Angela, shocked: You know who Iron Maiden is? You, who thinks Maroon 5 is a color palette?
