Tune in November 19 to hear the insightful Bones quotes Booth's grandfather has to offer.

The upcoming episode will be an vital one in the Bones lore. Viewers will learn the reasons behind Booth’s abusive father abandoning his son at age 11.

The series is currently casting for that important role, as well, but Mr. Booth won't appear for awhile.

“You can’t introduce too many relatives at once," said Nathan.

Does this mean that Leroy Jethro Gibbs is Booth's Dad?

Bones Quotes

Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.

Save the girls.
