Trivia: When Max and Temperence go out to lunch with Temperence's cousin Margaret, Max comments that the pair are "practically sisters," and later when Margaret meets Booth, Booth asks if she is Bones' sister. The actress playing Margaret is actually Emily Deschanel's sister, Zooey.Cubs Fan
Trivia: At around 5 mins 11 seconds into the episode, Vincent Nigel-Murrey and Dr. Saroyan are discussing the bones on the forensic platform. In the background of a shot of Vincent, the x-ray on the screen is of Homer Simpson's head in the middle of the screen, instead of a real human skull.jamba_fish_87
Trivia: The plotline of this episode is based on copycat murders drawn from Bones' books. The fictitious heroine in the book is named Kathy Reichs: Reichs is the forensic anthropologist upon whose life the character Temperance "Bones" Brennan (the character in her books and this series) is based.Jeff Walker
Trivia: The position of the bodies and in particular the arms of the two dead, corrupt FBI agents bear a remarkable resemblance to a full size painting that appears in Angela's throughout the first season and most of the second season of Bones - body upright, upper arms outstretched and forearms pointing down at a right angles.Jeff Walker
Trivia: This episode's airing was postponed for almost a year following the Virginia Tech massacre. Coincidentally, a similar event happened to David Boreanaz almost exactly eight years earlier when the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" episode "Earshot" was postponed following the Columbine school massacre.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Throughout the show, almost all documents, including things that most people would just write on a Post-It note, are on the Jeffersonian Medico-Legal lab letterhead. That is very unusual behaviour for documents that are not official, legally-required. Day-to-day paperwork would be on regular, standard white blank pages. The cost of their fancy, logo letterhead being used all the time would be prohibitive in any other workplace.DavidRTurner
Trivia: In this episode, there is an Agent Oakes played by the actor Morris Chestnut. Morris Chestnut later got his own show where he played a character named Beaumont Rosewood Jr. who is a pathologist. This is set in the same universe as Bones because one of Dr. Brennan's interns, Daisy Wick, appears in Rosewood and mentions Dr. Brennan by name.
Factual error: The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.Myridon
