Wendell: If you don't mind me asking, Dr. B, why do you keep staring at the X-ray?
Brennan: Because I'm suffering the nagging certainty that my eyes are seeing something which my brain refuses to process.

Angela: Did you think about Booth at all when you were away?
Brennan: Yes, I did. A-a few times I actually … dreamed about him.
Angela: Oh, well there you go! Dreams are very meaningful.
Brennan: I dreamed about the work we do. I dreamed about catching murderers and getting justice for people who were killed. What does that mean?
Angela: It means you're going to die loveless and alone.

Brennan: One thing, Hannah. I want you to be sure about this.
Hannah: The phone?
Brennan: No, although I understand the misunderstanding. No, about you and Booth moving in together. Booth will give himself to you completely … and it would be very painful for him if you aren't as serious about the relationship as he is.
Hannah: I am. But thanks, though. You're a good friend, Temperance. Seeley is very lucky.

We see big stars, tiny atoms too, because that is what scientists do. We get the facts and say what's true, because that is what scientists do. In darkest day in blackest night, no science shall escape my sight!

You're implying that you showed your appreciation sexually.

Brennan: So I'm the only one living the life I expected.
Angela: Well how's that, honey?
Brennan: It's um, it's as I expected.

Booth, in a week you're going to a war zone. Please, don't be a hero. Please, just don't be you.

Cam: Are you really leaving the Jeffersonian?
Brennan: Yes, for a year. I can provide you with a list of forensic anthropologists who can do this job.

Brennan: I don't know what that means.

Cam: You've been here all night?
Brennan: Is it morning?
Cam: Yes.
Brennan: I've been here all night.

The term garbage is relative. The only intrinsic value things have is what we give them. It seems odd now, but in Holland tulip bulbs were once as valuable as houses. Maybe we all overvalue things that are essentially worthless.

Booth: Hey, what's a year?
Brennan: It's the time it takes for the Earth to make a full revolution around the sun.

Brennan: We can come back, pick up where we left off. Nothing really has to change
Booth: No, things have to change. You know what? Hey, I taught you about eye contact, you taught me about evolution. So... here's to change.
Brennan: To change.

Bones Quotes

You told me my husband was dead. Angry doesn't begin to cover it.


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.
