* Hodgins: He’s weird, but he’s smart.
* Bones: I believe in the death penalty.
Bones: There’s certain people that shouldn’t be in this world. The people who hacked hundreds of innocent children to death in Rwanda. Beheaded them at their desks at school. The people who did that, they should be executed.
* Bones: Are you kidding me? I haven’t slept in over 48 hours and you’re worried about your suit? Get over here!
* Bones: These women, they deserve to be heard. It’s what we do Booth.
* Bones: Maybe I shouldn’t carry a gun after all.
Booth: Hell, you can have mine.
Synopsis: Bones makes an official request to the FBI to carry a firearm. Booth then denies it. Amy, the lawyer for Howard Epps, comes to Booth to ask for help on his case. Booth visits Epps in jail. Epps tries to play him, but Booth doesn’t fall for it. At the lab Hodgins and Zack are playing with bugs and Bones receives a skeleton. Booth enters and then asks Bones to look into the case with him. He’ll have all the evidence in the lab within an hour. She’s got 30 hours and 23 minutes for her determination. Bones goes over the x-rays. She sends Zack to the park to photograph it. Zack is at the park taking pictures and notices a parking space marked “221” and a Picnic area sign marked “10.” Angela comes back to the lab and is not happy, even when Hodgins informs her its pro bono work on a case. Bones told her she needs a textural analysis. And explains its about a man on death row with 20-some hours left before being executed. Zack calls Hodgins and tells him the number wasn’t a phone number. Bones finds a shard of bone and Hodgins finds quartz. Zack arrives back and demonstrates the numbers were actually directions on how to get to a parking space in the park. They discover gravel and conclude that the victim was killed elsewhere and dumped at the park. Bones talks to the family and their lawyer. He deduces that the victim was meeting him for sex. When he questions Mr. Ross, he requests a lawyer. Booth gets called on the carpet by the FBI director. He explains that he needs to be sure before the killer is executed. He lets him, but warns him he’s on thin ice. Dr. Brennan wakes up a judge at 1am to request the body be exhumed. The exhumed body arrives at the lab. The shards aren’t bone, it confirms she wasn’t killed there only dumped there. The pubic hair that was excluded from the trial is a match to her boyfriend. They go back to the judge to try and get stay of execution to complete the investigation. It’s denied as their is no valid legal reason to grant it. Bones goes back to the lab to keep working. They keep going over the evidence. Hodgins identifies some pollen. It attached to the murder weapon and embedded when the victim was attacked. Hodgins says it is only found along Chesapeake Bay. There was also chemicals. The victim was killed in a marsh by a chemical plant. Booth interviews Mr. Ross. He finally admits that they slept together but she ran off. He looked for her until 1am and then gave up and left. Booth and Bones meet with the director to request dogs, metal detectors and manpower. He’s not happy but he approves the request. The team narrows down the search area. They find the tire iron, but they also find two bodies. Per Bones the bodies have been dead for at least five years. However, finding the bodies triggers a stay of execution. Back at the prison they all meet with Epps. He disgusts them all. Epps grabs Brennan’s hand and she breaks his wrist in self defense.
