Booth: You know, when I say heartbreaking you say the heart is a muscle, so it can't break. It can only get crushed. Brennan: Isn't it heartcrushing? Booth: You want to go to his funeral? Brennan: Yes, I would. Then she won't be alone. Booth: You know what, Bones? Sometimes I think your heart muscle is bigger than people give you credit for.
When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved in case our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela. I wrote to you. 'Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and angels and maybe even Santa Claus. And because of you, I've started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me so much joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you you are already looking at me? Like you, it makes no sense. And like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and a place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful.' This is that time. This is that place.
