Brennan: No. No!
Booth: Why? Why?
Brennan: You thought that you’re protecting me, but you’re the one who needs protecting.
Booth: Protecting from what?
Brennan: From me! I don’t have your kind of open heart.
Booth: You just give it a chance. That’s all I’m asking.
Brennan: No, you said it yourself. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different outcome.
Booth: Well, let’s go for a different outcome here. Alright, let’s just… hear me out here. You know when you talk to older couples who’ve been in love for 30, or 40, or 50 years, alright, it’s always the guy who says: “I knew.” I KNEW. Right from the beginning.
Brennan: Your evidence is anecdotal.
Booth: I’m that guy. Bones, I’m that guy. I know.
Brennan: I… I am not a gambler. I’m a scientist. I can’t change. I don’t know how. I don’t know how. Please don’t look so sad.

Bones: You have to stop quoting Benjamin Franklin at me.
Bones: Well, I have no evidence of this, but I feel that every time you do that, it’s not actually communication. I feel the same way when people tell jokes.
Margaret: I’ve never thought of it that way.
Bones: I’d rather hear what you have to say than Benjamin Franklin.
Margaret: That’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.
