Let’s be honest, ‘cause everyone else seems to be giving it a try — the truth can be funny. Read on for our picks for the top 10 most amusing quotes from Bones’ “The Pinocchio in the Planter.”
10. Er, you mean elephant?
Brennan (Emily Deschanel): I’m avoiding what I would really like to talk about.
Booth (David Boreanaz): Why would you do that?
Brennan: It’s a difficult subject. It’s become one of those… pachyderms in the room.
9. We’re aware of it too
Wendell: Dr. Saroyan gave me the job.
Brennan: Oh, what persuaded her?
Wendell: I did. I was honest with her about my need and my ability.
Brennan: Well, why wouldn’t you have done that before?
Wendell: Because she’s my boss, and I was nervous.
Brennan: So you’re a coward by nature?
Wendell: What? No.
Brennan: But you just said...
Wendell: Forget it. You know, Dr. Brennan, you may not realize it, but you can be extremely abrasive.
Brennan: Oh no, I’m well aware of that.
8. It’s obviously her phone manners
Sweets (John Francis Daley): Something was obviously on her mind, but she wouldn’t talk about it.
Hodgins (TJ Thyne): She wouldn’t pick up when I called her, and you know she’s been polite.
Hodgins: Yeah, it’s awful.
Sweets: Yeah, she’s withholding something.
7. Wait, are we watching Bones or a Prius commercial?
Booth to Brennan: What are you doing?
Sweets: Whoa, ghost driver.
Booth: How’d you do that?
Brennan: It’s called intelligent parking. The car guides itself into the parking spot.
Booth: Wow, look at that. Does it solve murders?
Brennan: Of course not.
Booth: Good, I like my job.
6. That’s one heck of an alibi
Sweets: What did you do after the game?
Clown: I had sex with a hooker.
Sweets: Okay. Well, I’m going to need the prostitute’s contact information to confirm your alibi for the time of the murder.
Clown: Yeah, sure kid. You confirm my alibi [wink, wink].
5. You really have to ask?
Angela (Michaela Conlin): So I have something else to tell you now that we’re just getting it all out in the open.
Angela: When you leave your socks on during sex, I feel like I’m making love to a guy in a nursing home.
Hodgins: Is that a good or a bad thing?
4. Could anyone stop her?
Cam (Tamara Taylor): There’s also a new policy in the lab.
Brennan: Well what’s that?
Cam: You are the only person that’s allowed to be radically honest, and that’s only because I can’t stop you.
3. Not exactly appropriate talk over breakfast
Sweets to Angela: You’re creating new life as we speak, right now. I’m eating a muffin; you’re forming a pancreas.
2. Calling Sweets
Booth to Hodgins: Hey, Pig-Pen, what are you doing here?
Hodgins: My own wife just rejected my call.
Booth: Oh, couch time.
1. Better not let her hear you
Hodgins: It was a pre-complete ring off from my wife, dude. Are you really gonna tell me that’s nothing?
Wendell: No. So what did you do?
Hodgins: Nothing. I make her breakfast; I tie her shoes, for God’s sake.
Wendell: Well there’s got to be something. Are you going to talk to her?
Hodgins: No, of course not. She’s pregnant. The hormones are running the institution.
