This episode is good. Sidenote: I like Sully, so his episodes never bothered me. Eddie McClintock is THE nicest celebrity I have ever interviewed, so I’m a little loyal to him as well. It’s not that I want Sully around for more than four episodes, but I think it’s a really good, solid arc that has a nice beginning, middle and end. What a novel approach! 😀
There are many good things in this episode– so I suppose this is a little Top Five Tuesday, except for the part where it’s not actually Tuesday any longer! But here are some moments love. If you have more…make them known in the comments!
1. Brennan disses Booth’s ‘staid’ attire
One of my favorite things about the 100th episode was the notion that Booth started being a free spirit rogue rebel because of Brennan, so it makes me smile in hindsight when she thinks his plain black tie and plain black socks are a little ridiculous. When, at the end of the episode, he’s wearing garish socks–she says they are ‘amazing’. She’s being a little sarcastic, but I like to think she really does like his individuality.
2. A look into Hodgins’ past and personal life
Of all the characters, he is now the one we know the least about, in terms of his family life–outside of what he has with Angela and MVSH, so I like in this episode where we see part of his past and remember that he comes from money and probably still has some connections there.
3. “I’m not going to help you get MY partner into bed.”
One of the things I like about the Sully episodes is that he pushes Booth’s buttons from a friend and co-worker perspective, and Booth needs more of this. He has plenty of people who annoy him and push his buttons, don’t get me wrong, but pretty much none of those people are his equals, so it always has different outcomes. Sully is just a competetive friend, and I like that. It makes me laugh when Sully figures out that Booth wants Brennan himself–and he also doesn’t back down.
4. Hodgins makes a mistake on the case, but then he and Booth make up over some pie at the diner.
Doesn’t get much better than that.
5. Brennan & Angela and girl-talk
This happens throughout the episode, but it’s particularly fun at the end of this episode. My favorite is when they ask Booth what HIS cop nickname is, and he gets suspicious (but still cocky!). Hmmm…I suppose we will never know what it is!
Here is the B&B of the day.
The “Sex, Socks…Pretty Much The Same Word” B&B
From Man in the Mansion: Season Two
PS… I don’t know why these season two pics are so grainy lately–I think it must be from whatever cameras they used at that time. Also, I’ve just come to the realization that I could use some help here at BT. If you’re interested in taking on a couple of the episodes, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll explain how it all works. I can post them to the site and do all of that jazz. Let me know!
