Bones: I've spent so much time trying to control my life. I thought it meant that I was strong, but I was just afraid.
Booth: Afraid of what?
Bones: I dug out remains from the rubble at the towers. For two weeks, I was methodical. A scientist. I did what was asked of me. I did my job. I never shed a tear. I was proud of that. All these years, I've never let myself deal with it.
Booth: Bones, we all deal with things in our own way.
Bones: I could avoid it all before. I had no one in my life. But now I think of those people, and I think of you. Any one of them, it could've been you.

[to Bones] When it comes to coaching, Phil Jackson has nothing on you.

For years Tim Murphy was homeless. He was forgotten. He was one of those people on the streets that we try not to look at because the sight of them is just too painful. But we're all cut from the same cloth. Tim knew that. He knew just how connected all of us are. He knew that if it wasn't for his three buddies, that Tim wouldn't be alive on September 11th to save the lives of Diane, Warren, and James. And we wouldn't be able to tell Tim's son that Tim didn't die a broken man living on the streets, Sean, but he was as brave and noble as the rest of us. We lay him to rest today a hero.

Booth: I beat up bad guys, and I leap over things.
Sweets: You're describing Superman.
Booth: Exactly.

Bones: Most cultures have ceremonies to celebrate milestones in a man's life.
Sweets: Oh god, this isn't about circumcision, is it?
Booth: No, it's about dancing.

Sweets: Artisans go into business because they're passionate about the products they create.
Booth: That is so unamerican.

Booth: A man doesn't fold another man's underwear.
Sweets: Are those Captain America boxers?

Booth: You're a psychologist. Who would do something like this?
Sweets: You want me to figure that out right now?

Bones: I think you're trying to convey that you would no longer like to discuss politics.
Booth: Unless we're talking about JFK and Marilyn Monroe.

Booth: You know, Bones, I wouldn't vote for you, but I would definitely encourage other people to vote for you.
Bones: That's irrational.
Booth: So is politics. And love.

Booth: It was beautiful and rare, just like you.
Bones: You should leverage the tiger buyer into ratting out whoever he bought the tiger from?
Booth: Did you hear what I just said? It was very sweet.

Bones: When I am President, killing tigers will be a death penalty offense.
Booth: Whoa. The President isn't actually a dictator, Bones.

Bones Quotes

Bones: My IQ is quantifiably higher than yours.
Booth: You know what, you're the brains of the outfit.
Bones: You have your strengths, Booth.
Booth: Well, I try
Bones: Trying is one of your strengths.

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.
