Bones Moment of the Day: Booth, Brennan, and “The Man”
There is no denying that Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is pop-culturally challenged. Come on, the girl doesn’t even know the difference between Colin Farell and Will Ferrell! But in Season 4, Episode 6, “The Crank in the Shaft,” we can’t help but find it utterly adorable when Bones doesn’t know who “The Man” is.
When a special agent dies, Booth (David Boreanaz) goes on a mission to get the guy’s ergonomic chair — even if Brennan refuses to fake a doctor’s note for him. She explains herself by saying, “If I wanted a better office chair, I’d just buy one myself.” Booth disagrees: “No, that’s not how it works Bones. When you work for ‘The Man’ he buys all the office furniture.”
Brennan, who really should be blonde, asks, “Which man?”
Booth: “You’re kidding me, right? There’s not like a man.”
Brennan: “Then who buys office furniture?”
Booth (says what we’re all thinking): “Never mind, Bones. Just never mind.”
