The dress. The vows. The reception. The unbridled joy. The quirkiness that could only come from Temperance Brennan and the Fox series that bears her nickname.
Last week's Bones wedding episode had it all, and not even a burned down church or a frustrating cold case could keep her from marrying Booth after eight-plus seasons.
The network has released a special video commemorating the big event, featuring highlights from the wedding and seasons past, and of course Brennan's wedding vows.

After 172 episodes of Bones quotes, this one may be the all-time best ...
When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved in case our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela. I wrote to you. 'Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and angels and maybe even Santa Claus. And because of you, I've started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me so much joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you you are already looking at me? Like you, it makes no sense. And like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and a place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful.' This is that time. This is that place.Brennan
