I almost always associate this episode with this:
(and the subsequent “Oh it makes me crazy that Brennan will never know about this”, and yes, that’s me talking to myself), but when I re-watched this episode, I was reminded of something I’d forgotten about.
Brennan mentions that she purchased a book on how to improve working relationships. She states Booth shouldn’t have to teach her everything about it. He thanks her for that (sarcastically, sort of), but later in the episode, she tells him that sarcasm is not conducive to working relationships.
Booth certainly was sarcastic in the episode (is it bad that I say deliciously so), and Brennan has a point.
We’ve discussed each partner’s Most Valuable Qualities, but now I’m sort of wondering what their interpersonal lackings were. In your opinion, have they been overcome? Did they need to be?
Here is your B&B of the day:
The “You can call shotgun all you want, but you aren’t going to sit in Brennan’s seat, Hodgins.”
