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.
Sweets: 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.
Hodgins: Shoot.
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.
