-->'''Angela:''' So you think that we should feel like big giant losers that we're not spending Christmas with family?\\
'''Hodgins:''' There's more than one kind of family.
** The true companionship kicked in even more in Seasons 4-5, after Goodman and Zack left and Sweets became a fully integrated team member. And it isn't just restricted to the main cast. Many of the rotating interns (more prominently Wendell, Clark, Daisy, and Arastoo) along with Caroline Julian also fit this. By the later seasons, it's clear that all these people would do anything for each other, and don't dare mess with one of them, or the others ''will'' find you. The gang is also open to welcoming newer additions such as Aubrey and Jessica.
** In a more real-life meta example, the ''Bones'' set had the reputation of being one of the happiest and most friendly sets in town. Most (if not all) the actors for the regular and recurring characters got along really well.

* {{Adorkable}}: Most of the regular male cast: Zack, Hodgins, Sweets, Vincent. Brennan is an uncommon female example. Despite geeky traits, Booth (comic book collector, although that is his only one) and Wendell (though half the time you want to coddle him) are a little too macho to count, and Edison and [[spoiler: Arastoo (after being caught faking his accent)]] seem a bit too smooth. is a genius, but not at all nerdy.

After the crime is solved, he is given a star on the CIA "Killed in Action" wall even though his position didn't qualify for that honor.

** In season 12, [[spoiler:Aldo Clemens]] was tortured by someone tied to one of Booth's sniper kills using the barbaric technique of ''making rats burrow into his chest while alive''. However, he didn't give up Booth's name and sacrificed himself by breaking his own neck instead.
