"I love ancient remains. I really do."
She has these moments of childlike wonder and enthusiasm that are ridiculously charming. She loves what she loves, and she's not ashamed of it. Nor should she be! I love Booth, too, but shame on him for every time he's put her down for being weird or geeky. Brennan doesn't need to be "fixed." This is a smart, ambitious, bighearted woman -- and she continues to have my respect and affection.
Five seasons in, and I love Temperance Brennan. I really do.
