Dr. Temperance Brennan isn't exactly a people person. She's learning as much as she can from her partnership with Booth, but this doctor truly excels within the world of science.
Brennan, nicknamed "Bones" for how often she works with skeletons, is a forensic anthropologist at the Jeffersonian Institution in Washington D. C.
She's also a best-selling novelist and relies on advice from her best friend and fellow co-worker, forensic artist Angela Montenegro.
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.
