Temperance Brennan Quotes
Booth: Fishing is not a sport!
Brennan: What? Monuments to sporting events in ancient Egypt include fishing, as well as swimming and wrestling.

Brennan: Thank you.
Angela: Booth must be cute with his grandpa, huh?
Brennan: His grandfather calls him shrimp. Booth seems to like it, which I don't understand.
Angela: Well, it's because it makes him feel loved, like when he actually was a shrimp.

Angela: Very good, Brennan. You never had a nickname?
Brennan: Oh, no, just what Booth calls me; just Bones.
Brennan: Maybe I should start packing heat again.

Angela: Was Booth upset?
Brennan: Yes, I don't know why.

Angela: And not with Booth?
Bones: Director Hacker wants to have sex with me.
Booth: Whoa. He said that?
Bones: Well he said dinner but the implication was clear.
Booth: Bones, there's a whole gender/parent bond thing going on here. He's just going to get confused.
Parker: So I can have a pool!
Brennan: He doesn't sound confused.
Parker: Can't you be his girlfriend?
Brennan: That would be inappropriate.
Brennan: Because we work together.
Parker: That's a stupid reason.
Booth: Come to dinner with us, have fun, laugh at my jokes.
Brennan: That might actually turn out to be fun, thus becoming a self fulfilling desire.
Booth: Right! So, you'll do it?
Brennan: Yes! I will be your hamlet of 800 people or less.
Booth: It takes a village, Bones.
Brennan: I beg your pardon?
Booth: A village to raise a kid properly! It takes a village!
Brennan: Metaphorically. It doesn't mean we must all grow up in hamlets of 800 people or less.
