After waiting three long weeks for a new episode of Bones, we wouldn’t have cared if “The Killer in the Crosshairs” had been deadly serious. But it wasn’t. Bonus! Enjoy our favorite laugh-out-loud quotes from last night’s thrilling continuation of the sniper arc.
10. Low self-esteem problem?
Caroline: Ortiz isn’t currently in prison because he’s sitting in your interrogation room.
Booth (David Boreanaz): You’re the best.
Caroline: Tell me something I don’t know.
9. Back to the future
Angela (Michaela Conlin): Which means we’re looking at something from the future.
Brennan (Emily Deschanel): Time travel is physically impossible.
Angela: Yeah, but so is a bullet that you can program like a computer. Like we didn’t have it bad enough with the old kind.
8. The host with the most
Booth to Broadsky (who has broken in): Welcome to my home. Can I get you anything?
7. Are you serious?
Hodgins (TJ Thyne): So the name that came to you?
Angela’s dad (Billy Gibbons): It could work for either a boy or a girl, that’s the beauty part.
Angela’s dad: Staccato Mamba.
Hodgins: Staccato Mamba? Yeah, I didn’t see that one coming.
6. No time for games
Hodgins: These are the bills found on the victim’s body. But guess what I found on them?
Booth: Blood, on account that he was shot to death with a high-powered rifle?
Hodgins: Yes, blood. Of course blood, but guess what else I found?
Booth: Does this look like a guessing face?
5. We’ll need more information
Brennan: Caroline is asking if we see anything.
Booth: The answer is still no, and tell her to stop asking.
Brennan (to Caroline): He says stop asking.
Caroline: I don’t wait well. I’m an action person. Waiting makes my teeth hurt.
4. Next time, just say no!
Hodgins: You like that I stood up to you.
Angela’s dad (to his hung-over son-in-law): You don’t seem to be doing any kind of standing up at the moment.
3. That we’d like to see
Caroline (about Broadsky): He was in your apartment?
Caroline: Why didn’t you, I don’t know, jump up and judo/karate/kung fu the man?
2. We’re afraid of him too
Hodgins (about Angela’s dad): You are afraid of him.
Sweets (John Francis Daley): Come on, afraid. Am I? Yes, I’m afraid.
Angela: He is a very sweet man.
Sweets: He kidnapped Hodgins and gave him a tattoo while he was unconscious, Angela.
Angela: Yes, but he loves that tattoo now. [To Hodgins] Don’t you, baby?
1. And the winner is…
Vincent: Please tell me that this meat is not human.
Brennan: No, it’s venison. We found it frozen in the suicide victim’s cabin freezer.
Vincent: I’m confused. Are we investigating a murder or preparing lunch for the Palin family?
