Bones (Season 9) - Wikiquote
Forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan specializes in reading Cam: Okay, I don't usually get involved, Seeley. . [Booth and Brennan share a passionate kiss in front of his office door. . Booth: You know, I just thought look, you know, before I get married you'll be able to give me some advice here. On the surface, the character of FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth seems simple to define as his partner (and now wife), Dr. Temperance Brennan. and he seeks her out for advice regarding his feelings for Brennan, later on. in the Gator", where he works with Dr. Brennan in a case while Booth is in therapy. Their relationship becomes more serious and in episode "The Boneless Bride in He is mentioned in "The Glowing Bones in the Old Stone House" as Brennan Sully named a sandwich after Booth; a triple decker with roast beef on rye.
It is also established very early on that Booth is a man of strong moral and religious convictions, and a devout Catholic, which often puts him at odds with self-proclaimed Atheistic Brennan in situations involving religion and spirituality though I would argue that Brennan is a lot more spiritual than she claims to be.
Even when it comes to other religious beliefs, Booth tends to be more open-minded than he gives the impression of. He reveals what he did, to Brennan, after the case is over. Another part of what makes Booth difficult to pigeon-hole is based in his nature of deflecting personal questions and only rarely allowing other characters to directly learn anything about him or his past.
Unlike Brennan, Booth appears to have received proper treatment for his military-related PTSD, allowing him a much more balanced outlook than Brennan, and also a great deal more respect for psychology than she has. In the pilot episode, references were made to his former gambling addiction, though no direct correlation is drawn as to why or how he overcame it.
The inference there being that his feelings for her made him want to be a better man in her eyes, and that he properly inferred it made him look weak to continue his self-destructive gambling habit. He is also familiar with country music as his grandfather "raised [him] on Grand Ole Opry ". He despises new age innovations, feeling that technology dehumanizes everything. He hates cappuccinos, referring to it as "foamy crap"  and not actual coffee, only drinking his coffee black. He hates tea as well: He also dislikes reading news on a tablet, preferring to hold the newspaper in his hands,  and had a vintage fridge in his kitchen at his old apartment.
He also believes that the mechanics of it make it human. It is revealed in the season three episode " The Mummy in The Maze " that Booth suffers from coulrophobia.
When traveling through a haunted house, Booth is frightened of an evil clown mannequin; Brennan is bewildered by his behavior and Booth feels ashamed when he purposely avoids walking by the mannequin. In season two he shoots a large plastic clown head on an ice cream truck, annoyed with the music. However, in the first two seasons he wears a stylized eagle buckle and for most of Season 9 he is seen wearing a heavy buckle with crossed muskets, the insignia of the US Army Infantry Branch. He also likes to wear colorful socks.
In the episode " The Wannabe in the Weeds ", it is revealed that he is allergic to grass. Toward the end of season 4, Booth suffers from a brain tumor that leads him to hallucinate conversations with Stewie Griffin.
The tumor is successfully removed, but it leaves him with residual memory loss and a lack of confidence in the field. Work[ edit ] In the series pilot, Booth was introduced as an FBI special agent in the homicide department who seeks the professional opinion of Dr. Temperance Brennan at the fictional renowned Jeffersonian Institute.
He was eventually made the liaison between the Jeffersonian and the FBI, much to his chagrin, but he soon develops a close working relationship with the Jeffersonian team of scientists, whom Booth and his fellow FBI agents call "squints", a nickname which has since become a term of endearment Bones and her team associate him with. Booth once referred to the Jeffersonian team of scientists, whom he affectionately calls the "squint squad", as "my people". He is characterized as a "hands on" agent and makes no secret of his distaste for paperwork and formal documentation.
Booth is based at the J. Edgar Hoover Building along with his late colleague Dr. Lance Sweets and current partner Special Agent James Aubrey but frequents the Jeffersonian, which he jokingly dubbed "Squint Central",  for updates on the evidence and has his own access card. The fact that he has his own office and is called "sir" by younger agents denotes some seniority or supervisory status. In addition, when his credentials are seen close up, the acronym "SSA" can be seen, strongly implying that Booth holds the rank of Supervisory Special Agent.
It has been implied through interactions with other characters that Booth is generally well regarded and respected within the Bureau for his skill,     even if his distaste for the politics that entails his job has put him at odds with his boss and other federal law enforcement agencies.
Little is known about his work history in the FBI except for the fact that he spent a period of time in Japan as part of an exchange program with the Tokyo Police.
Because of his training as a FBI agent and military background, he adheres to protocol and the chain of command. As such, he often has to keep the "squints" in line when a case emotionally affects them in order to ensure that they abide by the rules and not jeopardize the case.
In the episode " Proof in the Pudding ", he demonstrates the double tap technique with a replica World War II-era Carcano for one of Hodgins' experiments. He is also a skilled knife thrower  and is familiar with various types of explosives and weapons.

However, Booth is not technically responsible for Epps' death, so as of "The Man in the Cell" his official kill count is at You got it baby. How you doin' baby? I have a secret I'll share!

It'll be better to catch him alive.

Well, we succeeded and we got Flynn killed! We did not kill Hayes Flynn, Pelant did. The only we can do is try to catch Pelant using the evidence in front of us. What if we don't? What if this just goes on forever?? In fact, I almost feel sorry for Pelant.
He killed someone who saved Booth's life. Booth will never give up. The absence of evidence is, in itself, evidence. Several agents turn and stare at them. To hell with the FBI.
It's in the stars. Do you think he'll kill Pelant the next time he has a chance? Usually I'd say no but the way Booth's turning Flynn into a saint, feels like he's working himself up for something.
But Booth's a complex man. I'm not sure any of us can tell what he's really thinking deep down. Booth wants to kill Pelant, which is fine.
Seeley Booth - Wikipedia
He's a very bad man, he's murdered What if there's someone worse and we need Pelant to catch that killer? I need to know what Booth is going to do. So you can protect Pelant. He's more valuable alive than dead, that's all. It depends which Booth is there. No, I mean, like all of us, he has two sides to him. There's one side that wants to save the world and one side that wants to take care of the people he loves.
Those two collide, well, that's what you called a "tortured soul". There's no such thing as a soul. Says you, but Booth values nothing higher than his soul, yet he's willing to sacrifice his soul by killing Pelant.

Temperance "Bones" Brennan
It's you who I'm worried about. I know how important that is to you. I didn't ask for that. That was your idea this time around. I would wear elephant tusks on my head and have a squirrel monkey do the wedding ceremony if that's what you wanted.
You really don't care? As long as you're there. We've waited long enough. I worked really really hard on my vows, but now that we're here. Do you remember the last time that we were here?

I was trying to get away from you because eh And you chased me down, and you caught up to me. And you know we had been chasing each other for a long time. And we had been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes and.
