Thursday, August 4 by Chuck G.

Want to know the best "Bones" quotes? This forensic themed drama series is on its sixth season with no signs of slowing down in the ratings. The chemistry between the two main characters Temperance "Bones" Brennan and Special Agent Sealy Booth is the very heart of the series. Their banter makes up for the best "Bones" quotes in each episode. She takes everything literally. He takes everything with a grain of salt. Together they make the perfect tug-of-war team on television today. The main focus on these quotes are from the two actors Emily Deschanel who plays Brennan and David Boreanaz who plays Booth.

  1. "I don't know what that means." – Brennan. This is in reference to anything having to do with pop culture the character Brennan has no idea what anything means. She's a world class scientist who has extensive knowledge of ancient cultures but is clueless to modern day life. Don't ask her who Lady Gaga is, she won't have a clue.
  2. "I don't know; following you to a bad part of town and saving your life. You know, the usual. Your turn." - Booth. She can't understand why he's always following her. He's letting her know in this "Bones" quote that he's there to rescue her out of trouble.
  3. "The Vicodin seems to be working he … claims it makes the furniture feel friendly." – Brennan. In reference to when Booth was on medication after he was shot. This fun "Bones" quote is great to recite when anyone feels loopy.
  4. "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." – Booth. He offers a toast to Brennan on how their partnership broadened both their thinking. She's however not good with change.
  5. "I envy your ability to substitute optimism for reality." – Brennan. A revealing "Bones" quote into Brennan's character. She doesn't understand optimism she only understands the facts.  
  6. "Get a soul." – Booth. The two characters were having a little spat. She called him a superstitious moron and that's when he called her soulless. Of course the "Bones" quote would be incomplete without her having the last say.
  7. "Get a brain." – Brennan. That's her having the last say. She's the smart doctor with the brain, he's the brawn.
  8. "Well, if it smells like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck …" – Booth. No matter how hard Booth tries to educate Brennan in the simple things she always manages to make things more complicate. This "Bones" quote exemplifies their differences. 
  9. "When Booth and I first met, I didn't believe that such a thing as love existed. I maintained that it was simply brain chemistry, but perhaps Booth is correct. Perhaps love comes first and creates the reaction. I have no tangible proof, but I'm willing to accept Booth's premise." – Brennan. His logic about life is finally sinking in to her thought process. Maybe she's not soulless after all.
  10. "You know, when I say heartbreaking you say the heart is a muscle, so it can't break. It can only get crushed." – Booth. He tries to explain to Brennan there is such as thing as heartbreak. Her retort in this "Bones" quote is that the heart muscles don't break, they crush.

    Very good quotes. But Brennan was never soulless. She says she does not know how to convey how she feels. Also, she sometimes avoids, on purpose, letting people see how she feels. But by her actions, she shows all the time how much she cares about people.
