(This only makes sense if you’re a fan of Bones, which you should be if you’re not. It’s really good.)
I was substituting for Temperance Brennan and riding in the car with Boothe. I’d found some info and he said casually, “I love you!” And then after an awkward pause he says, “Do you think…”
So I quickly interjected that sometimes Catholics and atheists get along better than Catholics and other Christians, based on an earlier conversation. He said, “What? No – I didn’t mean…”
I said I was trying to point out that the differences in religious views could be managed.
Then he started to look irritated with me so I shut up.
