Brennan knows immediately how to reach Zack and explain to him where he had made a mistake, and instead of defending himself when she points out the flaws in his logic he accepts it, exactly as if she as his teacher was pointing out one last error to him.

* When Brennan and Booth confront Zack over his role in the Gormogon killings in "The Pain in the Heart," Brennan is clearly just as angry as Booth, and even more hurt by Zack's actions. But she steps in between him and Booth anyway.

They walk off hugging and reciting the opening of one of Verne’s books.


-->You and I, we're bound to one another. So much so that I don't feel that I could survive without you. You nurture me. You protect me. You are my home. If I were to damage that by a meaningless dalliance, it would be like killing myself. Something that I would never do. That sounded a little better. I would never let anything compromise the life we share, Booth. I love you.

** The entire episode shot through the skulls point of view to simulate the boy watching the team until that fulfill his last [[spoiler: which they discover is showing the girl he had a crush on the love song he sung for her. The final shot through his eyes afterwards is him looking down on the team as he ascends to heaven.]]

-->I know who you are. You’re the woman I love. You’re the one who kissed me outside of a pool house when it was pouring rain, took me to shoot tommy guns on Valentine’s Day. That’s who you are. You’re the one who proposed to me with a stick of beef jerky in her hand even though you’re a vegetarian. You’re the Roxie to my Tony. You’re the Wanda to my Buck. Who else is gonna sing ‘Hot Blooded’ with me? And besides, we are way better than Mulder and Scully.

Added DiffLines:

* The fact that Angela calls Bones "sweetie" frequently is rather touching as it indicates their closeness and Angela's self-appointed role as Bones' CoolBigSis.
