Brennan: We’ll be meeting with agents from the FAA, the NTSB, and local police.
Zach: Usually Booth handles those people.
Brennan: Plane crashes don’t belong to the FBI.
Zach: Why not? FAA stands for Federal Aviation Administration. The NTSB stands for National Transportation Safety Board. That sounds Federal to me and FBI stands for Federal Bureau…
Zach: This is the third time in a row we’ve investigated without Booth. I don’t like it.
Brennan: Why? He mostly ignores you.
Zach: Ignoring me is Booth’s way of acknowledging my presence. It’s a guy thing.
Is that like a “guy hug” or a “partner thing”?
Zach: What makes this one of our cases?
Dyson: I beg your pardon?
Zach: We’re kind of special. We’re elite. We don’t sort though just any set of bodies.
Dyson: It was a state department flight with a bunch of VIP’s on board. Is that special enough?
Zach: I apologize if I have offended you. Usually we have an FBI Agent who mediates our interpersonal encounters.
Dr. Goodman: The information that I’m about to tell you must not leave this room
Hodgins: I am philosophically imposed to institutional secrecy in all its forms.
Dr. Goodman: Fine, get out.
Booth: Okay and I’m here why?
Brennan: Dismemberment, little bits, it’s a murder.
Booth: Well FBI doesn’t have jurisdiction at a golf course.
Brennan: Well who does?
Booth: don’t know. Try the PGA. Uh huh. You know you’ve done a couple of cases without me and you miss me.
Brennan: Zach misses you not me.
Booth: Zach and I don’t even talk.
Brennan: He seems to think it’s a male bonding ritual.
Booth: Maybe he’s right?
Brennan: No he’s not.
Booth: Could be?
Brennan: You told him that so you wouldn’t have to talk to him.
Booth: Well it was nicer then shooting him.
Brennan: Mmmm. Goodman has ordered me to investigate the other extra body.
Booth: Well then you better get on that. Next time you know, you miss me pick up the phone call me we’ll do lunch or something.
Security Guard: Dr. Brennan, Agent Booth, you have a visitor.
Booth: You miss me.
Brennan: No I don’t.
Booth: You miss me. You miss me.
Angela: I have a theory.
Hodgins: Femme fatal assassin.
Zach: Unregistered flight attendant.
Angela: Young, beautiful girl, doesn’t appear on the in flight manifest, group of high powered politicos.
Zach: Wait. What? What?
Brennan: Someone on that flight might have been doing his daughter or girl friend a favor.
Angela: Ugh, you’re so sweet, honey. You really are.
Zach: Oh, you think she was the in flight entertainment.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh, Early Zach, you crack me up!
Zach: You want us to defy Dr. Goodman.
Hodgins: I’m in.
Brennan: Not defy per say, do both jobs but keep one a secret.
Hodgins: I’m in.
Angela: We get it. You’re a rebel.
Hodgins: Has anyone noticed that I was the first to offer help and apparently I’m useless.
Brennan: Not true. You are the one that’s going to keep Goodman from finding out.
Hodgins: I’m in.
Meanwhile B&B are out in the field…
Brennan: Well how much money are we talking about?
Booth: I say we go visit Ms. Anderson and we’ll know pretty fast if she’s a suspect.
Booth: How? Subtle psychological indicators, Brennan.
Brennan: I looked those up on the internet, body language, sweat, tonal quality, shifty eyes.
Booth: Hey you know what? I don’t go poking around your bone stuff, okay. Just leave the human stuff to me.
Booth: Bones, tell Jesse what happened to the victim.
Brennan: It’s just that usually you tell me not to tell people.
Brennan: You ignore Zach to make him think that you’ve got some special bond.
Booth: Yeah but it works doesn’t it? I’m happy. He’s happy.
Brennan: It’s not the truth.
Booth: But it works.
Brennan: Zach wants to fit into the real world more then anything. You’re not helping.
Booth: I’m going off my gut. I mean what…what’s persuading you?
Brennan: The bone fragments at the golf course, they didn’t come from Max Kane.
Booth: That’s great. You knew that when you asked me what I thought. You testing out my instincts, Bones?
Brennan: Poking and prodding. I learned from the best.
Brennan, who has bonded with a suspect who’d lost his parents, has a final convo with him.
Kane: How do you live with it?
Brennan: What, the disappearance of my parents?
Kane: The fact that nobody’s looking.
Brennan: I never thought about it that way until I met you. There’s a Zen Koan, it says that if you want to find something, you have to stop looking.
Kane: I can’t do that. My dad’s watching and I don’t want to disappoint him again. Even if you don’t believe it, I know your parents are somewhere proud of what you do.
Brennan: It’s not rational but, I love the thought of that.
Brennan goes to visit Booth at Wong Foo’s.
Booth: How did Jesse take it?
Brennan: Like an orphan. What?
Booth: That’s just, that’s a little poetic for you.
Brennan: I didn’t mean it that way… I want to ask you another favor.
Booth: Oh geez, another favor.
Brennan: I wonder if you wouldn’t mind taking a look at this.
Booth: The file on your parents? Yeah okay.
Brennan: Do you want to think about it? It’s a pretty big favor.
Booth: You’d do it for me.
Brennan: Yeah I would.
Booth: I’m proud you asked, Temperance.
Brennan: You’re back to ignoring Zach?
Booth: Alright look, I know you don’t approve but you know, it works for us; it worked for him so…
Brennan: Yeah I get it and it, it’s kind of sweet.
Booth: Hey, you know, your people are my people.
Brennan: What I have people? Hey, I have people.
Then one of the great music people of Bones choose this song to play over the exit scene:
’There now, steady love, so few come and don’t go
Will you won’t you, be the one I always know?
When I’m losing my control, the city spins around
You’re the only one who knows, you slow it down”
