* ActorAllusion: Towards Avatar, Angel and various other things other people did.
** The Vegas episode combines Boreanaz's role of Angel (who also spent time in Vegas) with a role Angel himself played as vampire stuck in the fifties, rat-pack style. Booth spikes his hair up, dons greaser clothes and suspenders, faking a Bronx accent outta ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls''.
** Booth, like Angel before him, feels that he has to atone for the lives he's taken as a sniper.And they both play detective style roles.
** Joel Moore [[CelebrityParadox played a major character in]] {{Film/Avatar}}, and one episode has Mr. Fisher and his nerd pals camping outside for the premiere.
* AscendedFanon: "Squintern" was a fan term referring to Brennan's six ever-rotating interns. The cast and crew have recently adopted it.
* DawsonCasting: Zach is supposed to be the youngest member of the team by a significant margin; in fact Eric Millegan is the third oldest member of the cast after David Boreanaz and Tamara Taylor.
** Daisy is around the same age as Sweets, but Carla Gallo is ''[[OlderThanTheyLook ten years]]'' older than John Francis Daley. She's actually older (by a year) than Emily Deschanel, too.
* FanCommunityNickname: {{Fox}} recently started referring to fans of the show as Squinterns.
* FanNickname:
** The official forum is "The Boneyard".
** The rotating squints are "The Squinterns".
** "Baby Duck" for Sweets, and "The Duck Family" for him, Booth, and Brennan as TrueCompanions.
* FridayNightDeathSlot: Since mid-season 2013, and at least one person at ''Entertainment Weekly'' magazine thinks the show will end in 2015. According to the Friday Night Death Slot page there's already a few bad signs: it's on FOX, it's not family-friendly, [[RunningGag and it's on FOX]]. The fact that [[spoiler: killing off Sweets in the season 10 premiere]] has alienated ''many'' fans, probably won't help, despite the producers' faith that the show will last more seasons.
** Though Season 10 also saw it move to Thursday.
