Temperance Brennan Quotes
Wendell: If you don't mind me asking, Dr. B, why do you keep staring at the X-ray?

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.

Brennan: One thing, Hannah. I want you to be sure about this.
Hannah: The phone?

Hannah: I am. But thanks, though. You're a good friend, Temperance. Seeley is very lucky.

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

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

Brennan: To change.
