Main Characters in this Episode
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yeah. I've been thinking about how exciting it would be to expose my own child to early pattern recognition.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yeah of course. I-I will make a diverse schedule.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: She told you?
Dr. Camille Saroyan: She told everyone, it's probably on the news by now.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm just donating.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: So, you decided?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No! No! I am deciding, i-n-g -ing.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: I know you, Seeley. You're gonna do it. You wanna do it without really doing it, but it's still doing it even if you're not... doing it the way it should be done.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: She wants a kid, okay? It'll make her more personable with people.

Dr. Camille Saroyan: A piece of you?
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Hodgins claims to find a "grommet" when sifting through the goo. Bones asks for it, he hands her a toupee screw. A grommet is a metal ring used to protect a hole in cloth.
- Goof (continuity error): When Booth and Brennan are questioning Dunwood in the interrogation room, the top of a wine bottle can be seen sitting on the table when the camera faces Dunwood. The camera switches to a shot of Booth where we see him pick up and hold the bottle. The camera then goes back to the shot of Dunwood and we can see the top of the bottle on the table again. When the shot returns to Booth, he is still holding the bottle as if he had never set it down.
- Goof (plot holes): When the wine barrel was being examined it was revealed that the wine had turned into a viscous vinegar-like liquid. This would have been noticeable during the wine tasting as would the rancid smell.
- Stewie was allowed to appear in this episode because Bones & Family Guy are both owned and broadcasted on FOX network channels.
