* HilariousInHindsight: Brennan is very against the idea of anything not scientific (see trope below) whether it be Supernatural, Magic, Religion, etc. ..........And then they did a Crossover with Series/SleepyHollow, the First Episode of which involved a Soldier from the Revolutionary war waking up from a Magically Induced Coma he was put in by his Wife, who was a witch, over 200 years later and then proceeds to partner up with a Modern Day Police Officer to fight the Headless Horseman, whom in said Show is the Biblical Horseman of Death. To top it all of, [[spoiler: the episode where they crossed over into Bones ends with a document that no one at the Smithsonian absolutely can explain scientifically.]] Needless to say, every time Brennan or any character on Bones makes mention of how a Religion, Magic, Ghosts, aren't real, This Troper laughs any time Brennan or someone else mentions how 'Insert non Scientific thing here' isn't real because there is a very real chance THEY are wrong about that.

** "The Promise in the Palace" had a scene which shoehorned in dialogue which would have felt forced in an actual car advert.
-->'''Booth:''' I think that we can agree that Iím the driver in this family.
-->'''Brennan:''' Usually, yes, but this car is too technologically advanced for you.
-->'''Booth:''' Bones, I know how to fly a helicopter, all right? And besides, this car is as user-friendly as it gets.
-->'''Brennan:''' I have to admit it is easy to drive and when the carís not moving Christine enjoys playing with the reclining rear seats.

* AntiIntellectualism: Hodgins gets chewed out on a regular basis for his impromptu tests -- spam and artificial bone(2x01 ''The Titan on the Tracks'') to determine exact circumstances of death by incineration make perfect sense to Hodgins and the viewer, but Cam says (paraphrased): "You say SPAM to a jury and they get a laugh and the perp gets an acquittal!" Bones herself gets harangued for being smart while jurors are slack-jawed morons -- she nearly loses an otherwise open-and-shut case(1x08 ''The Girl in the Fridge'') because the opposing expert is chatty and handsome. "The jury likes Michael better than they like me, apparently that's a problem. Are they stupid?" Goodman responds that, "Compared to you, yes they are stupid. However, compared to you most of the world is a little stupid." Bones and her "squints" are supposed to be smart enough to catch crooks with microscopic bone fragments, but not smart enough to intimidate {{Muggles}}.

--->'''Booth''': ''Defense lawyer hears "Spam", he makes
a jury and they get a laugh joke, and the perp gets an acquittal!" jury laughs, and everything we get from the Jeffersonian is framed as 'goofy science', you know, from a bunch of squints with no connection to the real world.''

* NotReallyABirthScene: In an episode, Hodgins is host to a larve in his neck, which eventually needs to come out... screaming, controlled breathing, and all. Earlier in the episode, Wendell even asked if he needed to boil some water. The whole thing played out like a pregnancy.

* BeQuietNudge:
** In "The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken", when Brennan has had a fight with Angela, she says she usually doesn't have problems with people. Sweets starts questioning that, but then Booth quickly kicks him under the table to shut him up.
** In "The Dentist in the Ditch", Brennan tries to do the same thing when she and Booth are having drinks with Booth's brother and his girlfriend and Booth takes issue with something about their relationship. However, she accidentally kicks Jared instead.

* MoralMyopia: Dr Brennan and the squints have no problem talking down too people they feel are less intelligent then them, correcting peopleís mistakes or refusing to dumb themselves down. However they donít like Oliver Wells because he does the same thing to them. What makes matters worse he only started doing this after a one episode {{Flanderization}}. During his initial appearance he was incredibly charming and witty and the only reason Dr Brennan and (only Dr Brennan) was that he didnít allow her to do the before mention talking down to.

** When StephenFry is on the show, his character seems to have a bit of disdain for psychology himself, calling it on its ability to oversimplify and objectify a person's state of mind while arbitrarily projecting solutions that rely on the person's ability to understand and implement them. Then again, he was probably just using fast word play and large vocabulary to turn Brennan to his way of thought.
