The Gamer in the Grease - S5-E9

Trivia: Hodges, Sweets and Fisher are waiting to see the movie "Avatar." It's interesting to note that Joel Moore, who plays Fisher in Bones, plays the character of Norm Spellman, a scientist who has his own avatar in the movie.

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.

Mistakes

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.
