* There are "particulates" all over the place in ''{{Series/Bones}}'', especially when Hodgins is involved. Semi-justified, since Hodgins ''is'' [[TheWormGuy the particulate expert]] (and the other members of the team probably picked the word up from him, or possibly just talk about particulates more on account of having a particulate expert on the team), but its kinda weird when one-off local law enforcement characters who have never met him talk about finding them.
