In tonight’s episode of Bones, called “The Warrior in the Wuss,” the team is put on the case of a man who is found dead in the woods. When the evidence points in directions that don’t make sense, people have to start resorting to some unusual methods to solve the crime. Hodgins even pulls out his handy-dandy new toys (also known as very expensive equipment that he wasn’t budgeted to buy, oops) to help them out, but in the end it’s the simplest of things that leads them to the murder. Thanks to a teeny tiny worm, they finally get their man.
Meanwhile, Booth is both excited and nervous that Parker is coming to visit from England. Wanting his first child to get along with his newest, Booth does everything he can to make the little guy feel at home but something’s not right. When they discover that Parker is spending a lot of time alone and lying about where he’s been, I had a feeling that it wasn’t going to turn out to be him disliking Christine. It just felt too obvious and I was happy when it turned out to be something so sweet instead. Parker making a mobile for Christine, using all of their pictures, was great. That kid is just as sweet as his daddy.
My favorite bits..
Wanting to barf at the way the arms kept moving the more the guy tried to shake the skeleton off his leg. Ick.
Hodgins comparing his toys to his children.
“We’re still missing the victim’s head, Booth.”
“Do you really need that?”
Laughing my arse off when Booth when flying down the hill. Well, at least he found the head.
Angela talking about the motion sensors on the blinds in her and Hodgins’ bedroom. Yeah, I bet that’s a little awkward.
Wondering if Hodgins was going to refer to his Mas Spec as “Major.” (Only NCIS fans are gonna get that one.)
Bones suggesting that they find dead animal bodies, rearticulate their skeletons and then hang them up as decorations. Problem is I just can’t decide if that’s the worst or the best family project idea ever.
Kinda agreeing with Booth. Garlic breadsticks can cure a lot of my issues. Oh, and chocolate…but not usually at the same time.
“I got this belt for winning the Trout Classic. What did you get yours for?”
“To hold my pants up.”
Hodgins pointing out that a party actually fuels the economy by creating a demand for things like booze and a DJ.
Angela not wanting to waste one of her wifey manipulations on fiscal responsibilities at the Jeffersonian. Very smart woman.
Hodgins performing an autopsy on a worm.
“Would you care to assist? It would make me feel a little less foolish.”
“That’s a nice way of saying ‘worm turd’.”
Sweets’ reaction to Blake giving their victim a beat-down.
“And since I’m your boss, I’m perfectly capable of throwing YOU away.”
Sweets totally calling Booth out on the fact that he keeps on making excuses to get him alone so he can talk.
“You can’t stab someone with a fish, Booth.”
Hodgins using his various pieces of equipment in his lab to make booze and food for a party. Freaking brilliant.
Christine playing with the mobile that Parker made her. I swear I nearly died from the cuteness overload.
