Hey, good morning! I know this is late, and I’m sorry about that. It’s almost an Afternoon After Q! 🙂
Last night’s ep made me laugh several times. It also made me cringe many times and want to throw things at my tv, but…I don’t want to dwell on those moments.
Booth doing standup made me laugh, and I was glad that the jokes that bombed weren’t ones that he’d written. But it also reminded me of a season one commentary (for the Pilot, I think?) where Hart Hanson talked about how pleasantly surprised he/the writers were to find out that David Boreanaz was actually funny. Let’s face it…he has good dramatic acting chops (though I’ll argue that they’ve gotten even better as Booth), and a very good face and …everything. And while Angel had some funny moments, it’s not something that would have necessarily been DB’s calling card. I am trying to remember the scene HH was talking about, and I think it was when Booth single handedly (literally) takes down Oliver. It was just dry funny and great. The same thing happened in the second episode, when Booth zips his pants up in front of Tessa and Brennan—subtle and classic.
So in last night’s episode, Booth made me laugh a lot, and it made me want to talk about some of his other funny moments.
I’ll start, and then you can add your faves to the list!
Season Three: Man in the Mud “Let’s keep the conversation up, shall we?”
Season Five: Bond in the Boot, “You smell dead bodies, and this stinks?” to Brennan while they fixed his sink
Okay…I know there are more. Sound off in the comments!
