I'm going to add to your love for Finger in the Nest, Simone, by including this particular quote:

HODGINS: I don't know how to do this.
SWEETS: Mostly you just tell me what's on your mind.
HODGINS: Mostly on my mind is I hate everyone.
SWEETS: Everyone?
HODGINS: To varying degress, but, um... (considers)... yeah. Yeah, everyone. (shrugs) Angela... the most, because we, you know, had something great, uh, and now it's dirt. Zack... for being such an idiot; Brennan, for bringing us all together; Cam, for making us efficient; Booth, for giving us a mission; you for pick - pick - picking at me... Should I go on?
SWEETS: No, no. I get the point.
HODGINS: I just hate everyone. So, what? Intense therapy, heavy medication?
SWEETS: Nah. I'm good with the hate.
HODGINS: Are you serious?
SWEETS: Yeah, I am. You're doing fine.
HODGINS: Um... I hate everyone.
SWEETS: You're coping. It's a coping technique. Coping's good.
HODGINS: Did you get your degree on the internet? Let me see your diploma.

:mrgreen:

Actually, the whole conversation is hilarious (yet sad at the same time), and probably my favorite Hodgins scene from the entire season. But I especially love the line "pick-pick-picking at me" -- it's just the way TJ says it, and does that pointing little hand gesture at the same time, emphasizing each word. It cracks me up.

And because it's about time someone said that to Sweets. LOL. Kidding, Sweets! Kisses! ;)

I love the way TJ does that entire speech about the hate. Especially when he talks about Angela -- it breaks my heart. He did a terrific job with every word, every syllable, of that conversation. :clap:

I won't say lines,because lines of Hodgins are always fine,I will say the scene where Hodgins teases Zack of being cold,and then Zack punches him,TJ's face after the punch was funny and then he said "You won't punch me again,will you?"

I've been watching more of my Bones DVDs. :D

From "The Woman In The Car" (a terrific episode, by the way) --

HODGINS: One man's security review is another man's witch hunt.


HODGINS: What was the finding? I still work here, so--
PICKERING: Harmless.
HODGINS: Harmless? I'm harmless?
PICKERING: Yes. You do not pose a viable threat.
HODGINS: Well, that's just... insulting.

Heh. :D


PICKERING: If you want me to interview you, I will. But I'll only discover what we already know. You are benign.
HODGINS: I am NOT benign, lady. I'm not harmless. I'm malignant. I"m a loaded cannon.
PICKERING: (walking away) Thank you, Dr. Hodgins.
HODGINS: I know things that would curdle your blood! Including a formula that literally curdles blood! (to a passerby) She's wrong. I'm dangerous.

Heeeee.


HODGINS: I ran the particulates through the gas chromatograph and found the pollen of Eragrostis curvula, more commonly known as "weeping love grass."
BRENNAN: And where does one find weeping love?
HODGINS: Weeping love is found worldwide. But weeping love grass, that's in South Africa.

*snorts, laughing*


BOOTH: Asbestos from brake pads, leaded gasoline, a mechanic bench. You know, plus the mother was electrocuted by current from a generator. We're looking for an abandoned gas station or mechanic shop off the grid. You know, you guys are geniuses.
ZACK: How do we find that?
BOOTH: I work for the FBI, you idiot.
HODGINS: Way to go, Zack. We went from geniuses to idiots in three seconds.


And from "The Woman in the Garden" --

HODGINS: I called 'shotgun.' What does it mean to a society when the niceties are no longer observed?

Plus, during this episode... there really is no way to pay justice to TJ's impression of Booth. HILARIOUS. :clap:

What a great and fun thread. To be reminded of some of my all time favorite TJ/Hodgins moments ... *sigh*. :romance-heartbeating:

I just watched this episode the other day, and I had to keep replaying this part of their conversation. The way TJ demands, "Let me see your diploma," is soo cute. It's hilarious and really highlights his great acting skill.

The thing is, TJ plays the part of Jack Hodgins so well, you believe he really is Jack Hodgins. I was not familiar with TJ's work prior to Bones, so I don't have anything else to compare to his performance as Hodgins. All I know is, I love Jack Hodgins, and if he were a real man, I'd be on the next flight to D.C. :wink:

Isn't it about time we bumped this thread with some more recent quotes? It's not like TJ isn't still spouting gems. 2 from t'he Witch In The Wardrobe':

HODGINS: You know, it’s a little outside my expertise, but they look like bat bones to me. You missed that, Clark?

BRENNAN: Clark's error is completely understandable, given the condition of these remains and the bizarre nature of these circumstances.

CLARK: Thank you, Dr. Brennan.

HODGINS: Yeah, but I made the call on a piece-of-crap cathode-ray tube while in jail.


and:

HODGINS: 'God' is a little formal - Hodgins is fine.

I've been watching a lot of Bones on Netflix lately (mostly Season 7), so I figured it would be a good time to add to this thread. Not all of the quotes are Hodgins' but they are some of my favorites. :)


2-9 Aliens in a Spaceship
Booth: God does not make mistakes.
Angela: I don't know - putting testicles on the outside doesn't seem like such a good idea.


7-1 The Memories in the Shallow Grave
Hodgins: Angela used to cry at the ShamWow! commercial. (Replying to Brennan crying at a crime scene during her pregnancy)

Cam: What is this?!
Hodgins: Uh…why it’s..it’s a very small bipedal primate from the Hominidae family. (Referring to Michael Vincent being in the lab)


7-2 The Hot Dog in the Competition
Hodgins: Well, I reckon’ I best go look and see what we found in the teeth. (In a southern accent, making fun of Finn)

Hodgins: Okay! I’m sorry! All right? I was...an ass-hat. I am Thurston the ass-hat! There! Now...how do you scare a snake in a fishin’ hole?


7-5 The Twist in the Twister
Angela: You built a tornado with a car seat on top?
Hodgins: I call it the Sleepy Time Cyclone. It mimics the way that I move to get Michael to fall asleep. What do you think?
Angela: Honey, this is stupid!
Hodgins: Oh…I thought it was sort of brilliant…


7-6 The Prisoner in the Pipe
Daisy: …which is why we all need to pitch in and help out every way we can. I’m becoming a certified doula!
Brennan: You aren’t getting anywhere near my cervix, Ms. Wick.
Daisy: Just saying, should you find yourself in need, I could stop at the perineum.


8-4 The Tiger in the Tale
Hodgins: Hey! Check it out, BUG RAPTURE!! Hehehehe! Sorry, that just makes me so happy! Look at em’ go!

Okay I need more quotes! However I need quotes that are stand alone, so those that do not rely on knowing what other characters have said. :D

GO! ;-)

S2/Ep. 11 - Judas on a Pole

S5/Ep. 1 - Harbingers in a Fountain
Hodgins: And that ladies, that is why they call me "King of the Lab."


S4/Ep. 17 - The Salt in the Wounds
