Favorite Quotes:

* Booth: Every family has its secrets Bones.

* Bones: Booth, are you nerd?

* Bones: I don’t like to judge an entire subculture but those people gave me the creeps.

* Booth: They’re so delusional they don’t even know they committed a crime.

* Bones: So what you’re saying is that reality falls far, far short of the fictional.

* Bones: He wanted to make a difference in the world before he died. I told you he was more like you than me.


Synopsis: Everyone meets up at the scene. The body is in some kind of suit. Back at the lab Hodgins tells them the victim had a comic book. They determine he was dropped from the building after he died to cover up a murder. Once they identify the victim Booth and Bones go to notify the parents. His room is in homage to comic books. His father tells them that they got him a job at the bowling alley. Bones gets a text from Zack, the boy’s bones were broken and he has defensive wounds. They find the Citizen 14 comic book. Angela analyzes the comic book, it was a prototype. Booth and Bones go to the comic shop and find a group of Warren’s friends on the roof. Only Blue Minnow is upset that Warren is dead. Dr. Goodman goes through the comic book writing. Bones reexamines the body while Zack warbles on about comic books. She determines cause of death, stab wound to the neck. Goodman finishes his analysis of the comic book series. He is clearly in love with someone who he can’t have. She’s in a bad situation and he wants to be the hero and rescue her. They interview Blue Minnow. She gives them insight into Warren’s character. At the Angela-tron Warren’s death is recreated. Zack cleaned the bones, but now there is damage to the bones. Zack believes the victim was sick. The duo head to the bowling alley to investigate and Booth plans to bowl. They meet the owner and his wife. Zack calls Bones to tell her about Warren’s condition, even if he hadn’t been murdered he would have already died. His cancer was back. They break the news to his mom and stepdad. Booth thinks that because Warren knew he was going to die and therefore wanted to do something. Bones realizes that Warren wrote the comics, but someone else drew them. The artist was Stu Ellis who happens to own the comic book shop. Back at the lab, Zack found an extra bone; they go to work to figure it out. They surmise that the extra bone could be from his murderer. Booth arrives and gets updated. Bones draws a comparison between her and Warren. She gets an idea. They head back to the bowling alley. Bones asks Mrs. McGrudor how she was injured. Bones believes that she’s getting beaten by her husband. They are the comic book characters. At the lab Zack lets them know the bone is from a white male in his 30s. Angela uses her Angela-tron to recreate the weapons Citizen 14 uses. Booth figures out what was used to kill Warren. Bones and Booth go back to the bowling alley. The husband and wife are there. She turns over the bevel knife to Bones. Bones finds the matching wound on Mr. McGrudor’s arm. He tries to take a swing at Bones but winds up getting arrested for murder. The two speak with Mrs. MdGrudor and tell her about Warren wanting to rescue her and how he died trying to do so. We see Angela inking a comic book. Then cut to Warren’s funeral. Angela comes to the funeral and gives the comic book she drew to Bones. Bones in turn gives it to Mrs. McGrudor. She places it on top of the casket.

* Splinter: No training today, unless Michelangelo throws that balloon.


Synopsis: The turtles are topside looking for Shredder. Shredder finds them. He beats them all. Splinter wakes up screaming. It was his nightmare. He stops them from going on their night patrol. Now it’s hardcore training time. It’s been going on for weeks. During a practice Mikey is so tired he passes out. Leo and Raph are watching a cartoon and they start to fight. They all go to visit Donnie in his workshop. He’s working on a patrol buggy. At the Dragons lair April tries to deliver a pizza. Underneath the box it’s got a radio transmitter. Back at the lair Leo tries to get them to practice. April stops by and plays the recording. Shredder knows the turtles are in the sewer. The Dragons are meeting Shredder topside and he turtles head to check it out. At the location a newly mutated Chad Bradford (who’s now a giant dog) sniffs them out. They lose badly. Back at the lair the turtles are sad. Leo tells Splinter they got defeated. Before he can speak April jumps in and volunteers to go spy on the meeting. Everyone says no. But April does it anyway. The turtles follow her to the lair where she tries to deliver a pizza unsuccessfully. She goes with Plan B and gets into a building across the street. She manages to jump to the building the meeting is in. She is able to hear that they are picking up a chemical. They can’t hear everything that is said because they start fighting. Bradford overhears her talking to the turtles and kidnaps her. To save April they use the patrol buggy that is still a prototype. Meanwhile, Dogpound and his crew have hijacked the tanker. The turtles find the tanker. Donnie reads the name of the chemical it’s carrying. This stuff does not mix well with water. If Shredder pours it down the sewers everything will be destroyed. They try and take the tanker back. Donnie rescues April. The battle continues with Dogpound for the tanker. While they fight with him one of the foot clan is running a drain cable directly to a manhole to the sewers. During the fight the tank gets ruptured by Leo’s sword and they are able to use a water balloon to explode the chemicals before it hits the sewer. Shredder is pissed at Dogpound. Back at the lair they all eat pizza to celebrate and then get grossed out when Mikey tells them it’s the one she threw away. Splinter comes in and apologies to the turtles for causing them to have fear and congratulating them on overcoming it.

Favorite Quotes:

* Joan: Am I thick? You are the one stuck in a straightjacket.

* Sherlock: You are no longer required to play hall monitor to my impulses.

* Joan: So you prove you’re reasonable by asking me to commit a felony.

* Sherlock: That’s quite lovely. You really are skilled Watson.
Joan: No, I am dissecting a body in the middle of the night. We are not having a moment.

* Joan: Did we quit the Vanderhoff case when I was asleep?

* Sherlock: Mr. Bowman’s skull was crushed by a falling air conditioning unit?

* Sherlock: The best way to keep this woman safe is to find out how to kill her.

* Joan: You think he’s planning a murder by bee?

* Joan: Great. So we get to stake out a hive of killer bees.

* Sherlock: The thing that is different about me, empirically speaking, is you.
Joan: That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me.


Synopsis: An older man takes notes in his notebook. He then runs a program on his computer that messes with another man’s pacemaker. He tells the man to cast a ballot to revoke and then he will be on his way. The man votes to revoke. But then his pacemaker is set off to simulate a heart attack. At a prison we see the man that Sherlock caught. He is clearly in charge at the prison. Back at the brownstone Sherlock screams and Joan comes down stairs to find him in a straightjacket. He’s dislocated his shoulder too. Joan puts it back in for him. Sebastian wants to meet with Sherlock. Sherlock meets him and they discuss Moriarty. He has the guard give Sherlock an article about a death. A death he believes was done by Moriarty. It was a hit because he was supposed to kill him before he got caught. In Captain Gregson’s office they discuss what he did to the guard (killed him). Joan pulls him aside because she thinks he is lying. He shows her the article and tells her that Moriarty ordered his death. An autopsy was not done but he knows the mortuary. They break into the mortuary. Sherlock and Joan determine that he did not have a heart attack. He convinces her to perform an autopsy. She determines his blood boiled. Back at the brownstone Sherlock believes he was murdered because someone hacked the pacemaker. The next day Sherlock goes on a longwinded speech regarding prohibition and speakeasies. This leads to a property that has attempted to get its landmark status revoked. The last thing that Vanderhoff did before he died was change his vote on the speakeasy. The man who murdered Vanderhoff is now in an apartment with a window air conditioner. He drops it on a man as he walks by. Back at the brownstone an air conditioning unit zips past Joan’s window. Sherlock has proven it’s quite easy to time the drop of an air conditioning unit on someone’s head. Sherlock is now convinced that they are after a man who commits creative murders. He has also determined there is one living Taggert left and she is a lawyer who is bent on saving the Taggert Speakeasy Museum. She is the next target. The pair follows her to a park where she jogs at. Joan notices a medical alert bracelet. Sherlock spots an Africanized Honeybee. He states that it is simply a very aggressive bee. He finds a new hive of them along with a food source. They are located very near where she jogs. They stake it out as the food supply is getting low. Later that evening they munch on some food while they chat. Sherlock spots the murderer and then tazes him. He comes to in the brownstone. He’s tied up and in the straightjacket. Sherlock and Joan interrogate him. The murderer disappoints Sherlock because he knows nothing about Moriarty. He has committed 31 murders for him. But they have only communicated via phone and text. He does tell Sherlock that he was given orders to kill Sherlock, but the job was cancelled. Sherlock has a meet set up now with the murderers boss. They stake out the meet and one guy speeds off, they follow. The meet takes place on the other side of some railroad tracks and Sherlock snaps a lot of photos. He cuts the photos into strips and assembles a complete picture of the boss. The man is John Douglas. Sherlock does not believe he goes by his own name. The next morning Sherlock leaves a note for Watson that he’s gone to see him. They speak. John tells him he knows what happened. But before they can discuss it more he is shot dead through the window. Gregson arrives on the scene. Joan shows up as well. They do turn the murderer they caught over to Gregson. A new text comes in on the phone, but it can’t be read. Sherlock takes it to Moran. Moran decodes it but tells Sherlock he doesn’t know what it says. He becomes agitated. Back at the brownstone Sherlock is trying to crack the cypher. Joan actually cracks it. The time the message is received is the cypher. Back at the jail Moran is singing in his cell. He walks to the mirror. He begins smashing his head against the mirror. He did it to save his sisters life. Now Gotlieb’s phone rings, Sherlock answers it on speaker.

It’s the day of the garage sale and it’s raining outside. So Laura moved everything into the living room. Harriet asks how the sale is going but not much has moved. Eddie takes a photo of Harriet and leaves her blind. A customer finally comes in. She finds a table cloth she likes. She then finds the quilt that she was instructed not to sell. However, the lady cons Laura into selling it to her because she keeps upping the price she will pay. The next day Mother Winslow is on the phone trying to help her friend Shirley find her missing teeth. Rachel comes down stairs still playing the saxophone badly. Laura enters the kitchen and announces they made $350 in the sale. Laura credits Mother Winslow for the victory. She then tells them she got $300 for the quilt. But Mother Winslow informs her that the quilt has been in the family for over 200 years and that the patches make up the family history. It’s days later and Mother Winslow is still depressed. Laura is plastering the neighborhood with flyers trying to find the quilt. Laura comes back. She is upset because she still hasn’t tracked down the quilt. Eddie comes in with the photos from the garage sale. The photos are bad. However, he did get a photo of the woman who bought the quilt. The woman is the owner of The Nash Gallery. Carl and Laura go and find the quilt, but it’s priced at $3,000. The woman is unflinching, so Laura does her best to win the woman over. The woman is speechless. Back at the house Rachel appears to be playing the sax, but is really just pretending to. Carl and Laura come home and Laura gives her the quilt back. Carl asks Mother Winslow to tell them about the quilt. Each person has a special patch. She asks Harriet if she would sew on her patch after she passes. Then she decides the perfect place to keep it is in Laura’s room.
