First of all, sorry about last week–won’t get in to details, but I’m back, so that’s good! Secondly, I’ve created a Twitter account for Bones Theory, so if you’re so inclined, follow it. I had a friend at work say, “Sometimes I wish you had a Bones Twitter and an everything else Twitter”. He was very nice about it, but it made me laugh, since the SarahInPrint twitter account WAS supposed to be my ‘everything else’ twitter, vs. the 100DaysofBones one, and the seels one, and haha…you see the point; that did not happen. So instead of doing a different Sarah one, I figured I’d make a BT one, which should help with some of that.
Enough ‘business’; let’s call this post to order!
The other day I was thinking about my time (a lot of your time too, perhaps) at the old BoneYard (Fox official Bones site), and some of the things/people that –at the time– made me crazy, haha. Crazy enough to start my own blog, like some others have done, which is just a good thing, in my opinion (all of us, not just me, I mean). It’s like…I know in my mind that those times were amazing in a lot of ways, and also that there really were people who hated the show (in season three), and other people who said things like “If you hate the show so much, why do you even watch it), and…all of the things that happen now, happened then. I know they happened, but it’s almost like a dream…did they really happen? And sometimes I feel that way about moments in the series. I mean, I *know* they happened– I saw them with my own eyes, and with a quick click or two, I can see them again with my own eyes. But the show has been going on for so long that sometimes, some moments feel like some distant memory. What was interesting for me is that my moments like this seem to almost all fall in season three. Not all of them, but a lot. I don’t know if I’m just more likely to watch seasons 1,2 if I’m not watching a current episode or what…either way…I hope I’m explaining this correctly: some moments from the past seem so fresh in my mind, (Everything Happens Eventually, “I know who you are”, “It’s just evidence”), and others are almost as if I just read them once.
I asked pal Jen (NatesMama1128), the only Bones fan I know who has been watching the show since the Pilot aired– I feel like this deserves an award or something, like the ‘who drove the furthest to the family reunion’ award or something — if there were any moments she was sometimes like “oh yeah…that happened!”, and she graciously agreed to assist! So here are three moments from Jen, and then three more from me, and then I hope you’ll weigh in with yours in the comments.
1. Whoa. Horse.
I asked Jen the question, and she replied, “Well, it seems like Brennan was asking Booth for sperm a lifetime ago,” and haha, it’s true! That actually happened! Even though it was at the end of season four, it’s one of those moments that is just almost like a blur–somewhere in between them skating together in Fire in the Ice, Con Man, Librarian fantasies and Motley Crue (which yes, unfortunately was both ‘a dream’ and actually did happen ….ugh), Brennan did ask Booth for his sperm. Because he has good qualities. 🙂 Now she has his baby and his ‘qualities’. Haha.
2. & 3. : Jasper & Brainy Smurf
Jen mentioned that “And I was actually thinking the other day that it seemed like Jasper and Brainy Smurf happened ages ago,” …and yes, exactly, is what I was feeling too. Go watch either of those scenes and come back and report to me that they are NOT the sex–I dare you. Because they absolutely are. Sometimes…not always, but sometimes…it’s hard to watch older scenes in comparison to the current seasons. This was more true for me in early S6, but it happens today too, where I think, “Hey, awesome, B&B looked one another in the eyes when they talked. Great.” 🙂
4. Breaking those darn physics laws:
One of my favorite parts about this scene was the way Brennan conceded to Booth’s point, which threw HIM for a loop–asking if he won that argument, which sort of meant Brennan had still come out on top, in a way that only B&B could do.
5. “You look nice. Better than nice, you look…”
Ah, yes! This moment happened! Season one…Boy in a Bush. Booth gets nervous around Brennan, because she’s more than nice looking–she’s flat out stunningly gorgeous. Plus, as it turns out in this scene, she understands that he doesn’t break his word and that he wants to go to heaven. This scene never fails to put a smile on my face–I should watch it more often 🙂
6. There’s someone for everyone. Someone you are meant to spend the rest of your life with.
This is one of those moments I have to convince myself DID happen because it’s almost too good to be true. Sometimes B&B scenes just have the ability to suck all of the air out of the room (in a good way), and this is one of the ‘suckiest’, LOL…which is not to say that it sucks, because it certainly does not. But just that it takes my breath away, every.single.time. They both look completely gorgeous, and they are both vulnerable, and it’s one of my all time favorite scenes.
Okay, enough from me; I want to hear from you? What moments, whether they are from season one or six, or anywhere in between (or season seven!) seem like they were ages ago? Which moments from the past always manage to put a smile on your face, no matter what?
Peace, Love & Bones,
