I’ve been catching up on the Bones episodes I missed these past few days (season 5, that is) and I gotta say that I find Dr. Temperance Brennan – the main character in the show – to be totally endearing. Brennan – or “Bones” as her FBI agent partner Seeley Booth fondly calls her – really says the funniest things without meaning to be funny. Though she is a brilliant forensic anthropologist, her lack of social skills and knowledge of pop culture make fodder for most of the hilarious if not wittiest dialogues in the show. Her deadpan way of pointing out a fact also adds to her unique charm. And I love the chemistry between her and Booth. Yup, I am definitely shipping for Booth and Brennan. They are the next best on-screen partner after Mulder and Scully.

Here are some of my favorite Brennan quotes from the show:

Booth: What? Do you want me to spit in my hand? We’re Scully and Mulder.
Brennan: I don’t know what that means.


Brennan: “I would like to marry you.”
Booth: Kind of sudden, Bones. Let me think about that.
Brennan: No, Booth. That’s what Angela told Hodgins. Are you joking?


Brennan: They’re all pumping me.
Booth: Excuse me!?


Booth: Reason for wanting a gun?
Brennan: To shoot people.
Booth: Not a good response.
Brennan: It’s the truth!
Booth: You know, I’m writing self-defense in the performance of my duties pursuing suspected felons as contracted out to the FBI…
Brennan: …so I can shoot them.


Booth: Enough, OK? We’ll talk about it later.
Brennan: Well I’m not asking for you to be involved. All I want is your sperm.


Brennan: She’s easily as pretty as I am. I mean, using me as a standard.
Booth: Well Bones, you are a standard.
