Bones Episode Stills from "The X in the File"

at . Comments

When Bones returns with a new episode on January 14, it will pay tribute a show largely responsible for the current trend of investigative dramas and serialized mysteries.

The installment's title might give it away: "The X in the File."

In case that clue somehow isn't enough, Dean Haglund guest stars as a diner owner on the episode. The actor (pictured below) is best known for his recurring role as Richard Langly on - you guessed it - The X Files.

During the hour, Booth and Brennan investigate possible alien remains around Roswell, New Mexico, a city where many people believe a UFO actually crashed in 1947.

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


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.
