Temperance Brennan Quotes
Booth [to Brennan]: What makes us human bones is that we can feel compassion and regret.
Brennan: I can tell this is really important to you, why?
Booth: Because I know what kind of person you are, and I think it's time you let other people in on your little secret.
Booth: Wouldn't you like to be normal person like the rest of us who doesn't paralyze people?
Brennan : People who tell the truth have always endured scrutiny for their honesty...it's my duty.
Booth: Bones, what are you doing here?
Brennan: What are you doing?
Booth: I don't know; following you to a bad part of town and saving your life. You know, the usual. Your turn.
Brennan: I made a mistake.
Booth: Nah, I told you my opinion, I mean, you got it right.
Brennan: Not everything. She died with regrets.
Booth: Come on, Bones, everybody has regrets.
Brennan: I heard her, you know? Micah says that all we get are these (she laughs) dim, staticky messages from the universe.
Booth: Who's this Micah guy?
Brennan The night watchman, but he attends a lot of lectures. Anyway, the point is she never gave him a chance.
Brennan: No, no, the helicopter pilot. He offered himself to her, but she never gave him a chance. That was her regret. (Booth looks at her aware that she's talking about him) I got the signal, Booth. I don't wanna have any regrets.
Booth: (Booth takes his time answering) Um, I'm with someone, (Brennan nods in a defeated way) Bones. And, uh, Hannah? She's not a consolation prize. I love her. (Brennan begins sobbing) You know, the last thing I wanna do is hurt you, but those are the facts.
Brennan: (in tears) I understand. I missed my chance. My whole world turned upside down. I can adjust.
Booth: I did.
Brennan: Yes, you did.
(Brennan has Micah listen to Lauren Eames' voice on the DVD.)
Brennan: It sounds exactly like my voice. She is me.
Micah: She isn't you. She's her and you're you. You're alive and she's dead. Ergo, ipso, facto, Colombo, Oreo.
Brennan: Those last two words, one is the capital of Sri Lanka and the other is a cookie.
Micah: (smiles) It sounds like Latin.
Micah: By the power vested in me by the Jeffersonian Institution, I declare you sleep-deprived. There's a cab waiting to take you home to bed, hmm?
Brennan: Do you really have that power?
Micah: I saw this lecture where this New Age guru type said the only power people exert over us is the power we allow them to exert.
Brennan: Well that's incredibly stupid.
Micah: I agree. You wave a gun in my face, you got power whether I like it or not.
Brennan: How-how come I understand every word you say? Always? I don't have that with anybody else. Sometimes I just hear noise.
Micah: Well, I guess I've been here so long, I speak the secret language of the Jeffersonian, hmm?
Nigel-Murray: Definitely looks like murder.
Brennan: There's nothing definite here, Mr. Nigel-Murray. It's possible the victim had a grand mal seizure while voluntarily lying in the chocolate.
Cam: But let's call it murder, just for fun.
Booth: He wasn't on the Missing Persons Database, so it means no one was missing him.
Brennan: You have a very strange tendency to state the obvious.
Brennan: Booth, you've been shot and beaten, and jumped out of airplanes. The skeletal damage alone is
Booth: Oh, God, I'm falling apart.
Brennan: You're fine. It's your skeleton that's falling apart.
Cam: What the hell is it?
Hodgins: Wow. It's some kind of organism, anchored to the bone. Interesting.
Cam: Alien sea life hitchhikes in on a slave ship, and that's all you can say, interesting?
Brennan: I think in this context, interesting is a way of acknowledging life-forms beyond Dr. Hodgins' expertise.
Hodgins: Temporary condition, I assure you.
Sweets: Anyway, even though Daisy and I aren't dating, I've decided we can still enjoy each other's company, casually, once in a while.
Brennan: I'm not sure why I should care. Are you planning on having sex somewhere that I will witness it?
Sweets: I hope not.
Brennan: Then I definitely don't care.
