Vintage Bones: The Bond in the Boot

Hello Bones fans!

I like this episode, though I admit the end scene may cloud my judgement against any flaws the episode might have.

But seriously…

I like the case in this episode, and I believe this is the episode where the team ‘anonymously’ re-instates Wendell’s scholarship, which was sweet.  Hodgins has some great lines in this episode as well.

 

Enough from me though. What do you like about this episode and what don’t you like? The comments are open!

Here is your moment of B&B:  (and once upon a time I did a scene study on this scene: link here)

  1. Hodgins: Wendell, my man, we still on for lunch?
    Cam: You are discussing lunch while holding a tray of cat excrament.
    Hodgins: Everybody poops. They even wrote a book about it.
    ———-
    Prescott: You shot a clown.
    Booth: A mechanical clown. You tell me you never wanted to do that?
    ———-
    Brennan: Since the coma, Booth can’t remember how to take care of his own plumbing.
    Booth: You know, that’s great. You make it sound like I gotta wear diapers.
    ———-
    Booth: [Finding a body in a car trunk] Whoa! Okay. That is going to kill the Blue Book value.
    ———-
    Brennan: I try not to get attached to my assistants. I’ve learned that even the best ones can disappoint.
    ———-
    Angela: I hate to break it to you, Jack. But you’re the guy who studies bugs, slime and poop. Hardly assasination worthy.
    Hodgins: Hey, a lot of people would like to see me dead.
    Angela: I’m not going to touch that one.
    ———-
    Mandy: We weren’t supposed to date. I guess it’s not like the FBI. We’re not allowed to sleep with someone we’re working with.
    Brennan: Wha – is she talking about us?
    Booth: We’re not…
    Brennan: No!
    Mandy: Oh, it’s okay. I’m CIA. My lips are sealed.
    ———-
    Booth: You know, Bones. I’m glad that we don’t have any secrets between each other.
    Brennan: Yeah. I like that.
    Booth: I mean, if we have something on our mind we just share it.
    Brennan: Sure. Even with all the financial and intellectual contradictions I still feel close to you.
    Booth: Right. Because, you know, none of that matters anyway.
    Brennan: Well, sometimes looking at it through your eyes, I believe that.

    **PS….I LOVE SCENE STUDIES!!!

    • “Booth: You know, Bones. I’m glad that we don’t have any secrets between each other.
      Brennan: Yeah. I like that.
      Booth: I mean, if we have something on our mind we just share it.
      Brennan: Sure. Even with all the financial and intellectual contradictions I still feel close to you.
      Booth: Right. Because, you know, none of that matters anyway.
      Brennan: Well, sometimes looking at it through your eyes, I believe that.”

      great example of them not being honest with themselves, as they are both hiding the biggest secret of all despite claiming to have no secrets.

      I’ll admit that I didn’t watch the whole ep when on my musical catalog last week. I skipped to about the last 4 minutes.

  2. Aww, yay, I love this one! I started watching regularly with season five, so this was one of my first experiences with the way Bones sometimes just does its cute little unassuming thing for the first 55 minutes and then hits you with every feeling in the last 5. “Student teacher, student, teacher.”

  3. I liked this episode and it’s funny seeing Josh Levy as the defunct spy. I liked the case and the plumbing scene is a little gem. The one thing I didn’t like was Brennan’s treatment of Wendell. Every time I see this episode I think after Brennan tells him he’s out as her intern, ‘what if Wendell in despair went out and jumped off a bridge? How would you feel then?’ OK I’m assuming it was Brennan and Hodgins who threw in the scholarship money, and lest we — as all the writers do — forget that Angela’s dad is a rock star and rich, she may have put money in too. But it wasn’t soon enough and Brennan’s callousness always grates on me.

    • I always assumed the way Cam’s line was that they had found enough money for three scholarships that each of the three had done so including Angela.

      • Angela seemed pretty surprised. I don’t think she contributed. She always seemed to be paying her own way without her father. She was saving money for Paris when she met Brennan and even commented that she brought her lunch to work. I always thought it was Brennan and Hodgins that had put in the money.

      • I hadn’t considered Angela’s financial situation – just assumed that they used “enough for three scholarships” on purpose with her talking to the three of them.

    • I don’t know, someone had to tell him and Cam was being a bit cowardly. He needed to know to start figuring out what to do with his life for the next year. In academia its better to know earlier rather than later incase you can apply for something else. Brennan did tell him he was one of the best interns she had ever worked with– that’s high praise since she doesn’t complement easily. Out of all “Brennan is callous” scenes I think this was one of her better efforts.

      I don’t think Angela has any personal money. She had to ask Brennan for $1500 to save a pig.

      • I think it bothered me because both she and Hodgins had the money to help him out and the excuses they came up with not to were pathetic.

  4. I loved everything about this episode, except the Wendell losing his scholarship part. Hodgins could part with $2,000 for an ounce of fancy perfume for Angela, but he balked at putting up money for the scholarship for someone he considered a friend. I didn’t like that he hid behind the Cantilever group since I’m sure at the time he had large amounts of personal wealth. Brennan putting Angela off by saying she already contributed to other charities blah, blah, etc. The woman had a freakin’ bridge built, but was hesitant to put up a significantly lower amount for Wendell. It was nice that she and Hodgins came through at the end, but the whole plot point didn’t work for me. I always thought they could have skipped the whole thing. Seeing Wendell broken hearted about telling his mother was awful, especially since it was for nothing.

    Loved the B&B stuff although Brennan saying that plumbing was a menial task kind of irked me. It’s not like street sweeping that requires no skill-you have to know what you’re doing. Whatever, that was just a minor annoyance.

    Them lying hip to hip under the sink was all kinds of yummy goodness. Booth in his stocking feet was so cute. I couldn’t believe the two of them kept a straight face when they agreed that they didn’t have secrets from each other. Umm, okay. It was scenes like this that made me think that by the 100th Booth might not be wrong to ask Brennan to take a chance.

    • Caprigirl, that’s so funny you mention the socks…I didn’t even realize he was just wearing socks until just today when I saw the picture! And I’ve seen this episode a million times!!! Sheesh. 🙂 I loved noticing how his shoes were kicked off and he was all comfy and hanging out with his Bones….its just so freaking adorable!

  5. Sweet ending.
