* InformedAbility: Brennan often says that she is extremely intelligent and has very high IQ. In practice, she is far from that. Sure, she is very knowledgeable but she finds it difficult to make connections when they are not obvious, something Booth or Hodgins do naturally. This is especially jarring in social situations, because Brennan sometimes compares the situations she witnesses to anthropological trivia, yet sometimes she seems completely lost even though such event should be simple to any anthropologist, even on purely analytical level.

** On the other hand, he does not find it difficult to accept that he made a mistake and he does not take conflicts personally. So, he is definitely more an InsufferableGenius rather than JerkAss, in comparison to Brennan.

''Bones'' is a television series which started on September 13, 2005 and ended on March 28, 2017 after 12 seasons. Temperance "Bones" Brennan, forensic anthropologist, is the pride of the Jeffersonian Institute's medico-legal lab. She's a brilliant scientist who's traveled all over the world in the course of her work and has even used her experience in the field to write a couple bestselling mystery novels. She's the person the FBI calls when a body turns up that can't be identified by normal procedures.

* QuietCryForHelp: Cam thinks an email from Aristoo might be this (paraphrasing: "'I'd like a shower and fresh clothes' means he's been thrown in jail!"); Edison, who's also Aristoo's friend, assures her that's unlikely and because he (Edison) is a BadLiar he's not hiding anything or pretending so she won't worry. Then again Aristoo's emailing her from ''Iran'' and [[spoiler: a future episode description says he was kidnapped but not when]].
** [[spoiler: Subverted -- Aristoo was fine until he was kidnapped which was some time after he emailed Cam, plus he was on the phone with her as it happened.]]

** Lab team sometimes picks up the subject of supposed opposition between the science and personal belief (most visible when they are confronting Arastoo Vaziri about his faith), as if they were unaware of the fact that many famous scientists were either devout believers or even members of the clergy.
