Notes Edit

  • Guest stars Ace Young (Tommy Sour) and Brandon Rogers (Broadway Wannabe) were both contestants on FOX's American Idol on season 5 and season 6, respectively.
  • In this episode, Zack sings extremely well. In real life, Eric Millegan, who plays Zack, studied musical theatre at the University of Michigan, where he graduated with a bachelors degree in Fine Arts.

I don't know what that means. Edit

  • Booth laments that "everybody wants to be the next Kelly Clarkson", Bones asks "Who is Kelly Clarkson?"
  • Bones also does not understand Sweets' reference to Chumbawamba and their song Tubthumping.
