Officer Conway: Have I arrested you before, hon?
Brennan: N- you were my lab partner in chemistry in Burtonsville High.

Officer Conway: Yeah, I remember you now. The creepy girl.
Officer Conway: Brad was always the golden boy. He always, got what he wanted. Rumor is, his business isn't doing very good.

Officer Conway: It is a miracle that you have any life whatsoever.
Brennan: You cheated off my test in chemistry.

Brennan: Why did you feel you had to tell me that?
Booth: I don't know. I just feel like, um, this is goin' somewhere.
Brennan: Why did you feel like this is going somewhere?

I am not a gambler. I'm a scientist. I can't change. I don't know how... I don't know how.

Brennan: It is very good.
Booth: Yes, it is.
Two plus two equals four. I put sugar in my coffee and it tastes sweet. The sun comes up because the world turns. These things are beautiful to me. There are mysteries I will never understand, but everywhere I look I see proof that for every effect there is a corresponding cause. Even if I can't see it. I find that reassuring.
Brennan: You have faith that you will retain your faith? Why?
Booth: Because, Bones. The sun will come up and tomorrow is a new day.
Brennan: I know that feeling.
Booth: You know what it feels like to get your faith back?
Brennan: When I see effects and I am unable to discern a cause, my faith in reason and consequences is shaken.
When Booth and I first met, I didn't believe that such a thing as love existed. I maintained that it was simply brain chemistry, but perhaps Booth is correct. Perhaps love comes first and creates the reaction. I have no tangible proof, but I'm willing to accept Booth's premise.
Hodgins: Do you know what Vincent Nigel-Murray is? He's a genius.
Brennan: Yes, but so are we all. Except for Angela.
Angela: Oh, right, and yet who do you turn to when you need pretty pictures?
Angela: Four years ago Jared's girlfriend was a hooker?
Brennan: An escort. I believe in the hierarchy of prostitution, an escort ranks equal to high class call girl.
Angela: And now she teaches grade school?
Brennan: Mm-hmm. I don't see any other injuries that could be cause of death. Apparently the rule is, once a sex worker always a sex worker.
Angela: You know, it really would have been better if Booth never ran her record.
Brennan: He said it was my influence. That it was the rational thing to do.
Angela: No, sweetie, he's rationalizing. Which makes what he did irrational, because he's rationalizing that Jared can't make rational decisions for himself. You do the same thing all the time. Maybe that's what he learned from you.
Booth: You think your brother's girlfriend is hinky? Is that slang for pretty or buxom?
Brennan: No, it's just slang for iffy.
Booth: Well, iffy is already slang. I don't see the need for slang for slang.
