Top 5 favorite Booth/Brennan scenes (that are not ending scenes) from season 4  

Top 5 favorite Booth/Brennan scenes (that are not ending scenes) from season 4

As season 5 gets closer and closer (yay!), I felt like looking back at all the pretty scenes we got in season 4 and making a top 5 list of my favorite Booth/Brennan scenes. This list doesn't include ending scenes of episodes because those are so awesome they deserve a whole seperate list. I attempted to put them in order, with number 1 being my favorite scene, which was hard! But mostly this was just an excuse to look at pretty caps, mkay? Onto my top 5...

5. Back adjustment scene from episode 4x15 a.k.a. the OMGBOOTHISINHISUNDERWEAR! and Emily looks gorgeous scene

I love this scene because it shows that Booth doesn't mind being vulnerable in front of Brennan. He calls her over when he's in pain and trusts her to fix it for him. He opens the door in his underwear! He uses his charm smile on her, which he totally knows will work. And also, the lighting in this scene is really pretty.

4. Sexy librarian scene from episode 4x10 a.k.a. the Mile High Club anyone? scene

This scene is really hot! I think this is the first time Booth has been this flirtatious and forward with her. Brennan is clueless of course, which could be annoying if it wasn't so endearing. Little Miss Role-play didn't understand the sexy librarian concept? Suuuure! And I love, love, love how Booth towers over her in this scene. Usually they're so close in height because Emily's so tall, but in this scene there's a noticable difference in height. Or it's the way the scene was shot. Either way, I like!

3. The fight scene from episode 4x09 a.k.a. the poor Booth! *sad face* scene

This scene is still really hard for me to watch, but it's such a great scene at the same time. The whole Jared/Booth-lite thing still rubs me the wrong way since I felt like it was too late in the game for Brennan to doubt Booth like she did. But still, I think Brennan can be very naive and quick to believe things about people. She can be very black and white, and what was going on between Booth and Jared was grey. She doesn't always understand that. Booth was so hurt in this scene, which I love because it shows how much her opinion of him matters to him. He needs her to have a good opinion of him. What I love even more was how scared/shocked Brennan was by Booth's reaction. She wasn't prepared for his anger. I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing, she obviously says what's on her mind, and I think this time she knew she'd crossed a line.

2. Brennan checks on Booth scene from episode 4x19 a.k.a. Brennan + touching Booth's face = me dead from the cuteness! scene

Would season 1 Brennan have done this? NO! She didn't have to touch his face, he had no visible bruise and was fine, but she did anyway. She checks on him, he compliments her by telling her she's the only smart person he likes. Perfect, subtle, example of their give and take dynamic.

1. Booth makes love to Brennan with his eyes scene from episode 4x25 a.k.a. the GUH! scene

This might just be one of my favorite Booth/Brennan scenes ever! I could watch this over and over, never get tired of it, and probably find some new meaning in it every time. When Brennan finally shows up, he just lights up and it seems like he's feeling better just being in her presence. When he asks her to be in the operating room with him, it obviously wasn't just for himself. He knows she'd go crazy in the waiting room, so being in the operating room gives her just a teeny bit of control. It gives her a purpose (holding his hand, being there), instead of just waiting. He knows what she needs in that moment, not just what he himself needs. And the way they look at each other! It was like Booth was trying to memorize everything about her, in case something went wrong. So much love. ♥

Great top 5!
1. is also one of my favorites, if not THE favorite of S5. It's beautiful. I watched it days ago and I was bawling. How he feels so lost and then he smiles, lights up when he sees her. and her smile <3
I love their fight in Con Man. Wow the tension. Love it.

Great job!

Yeah, I think it might be my favorite scene of S5. Actually the last 8 minutes of Critic is some of the best in the whole series.

Thanks! :D

Excellent choice of scenes!

And the number one, I absolutely agree. First time I saw it, I was like: awww...he's looking for her! I love romantic comedies, if they're really romantic, they make my heart beat so much it hurts my chest (:P) but this scene did the exact same thing.

And then the smile, smile, the sadness, sadness.. In all honesty, season 4 wasn't the best season, but this scene pwns all.
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 03:57 pm (UTC)
Romantic comedies are the best! I think Bones totally is a romantic comedy, just with crime and cases thrown in, lol.

#1 =me melting into a pool of mush.

Love your top 5, the librarian scene is an all time favorite of mine as well :D

L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :) The librarian scene is so HOT!

Thanks! :)

Bones lighting FTW! It totally deserves an Emmy, because it *totally* contributes to the show's success: the only thing that works better than having a ridiculously beautiful cast is having a ridiculously beautiful cast that is gorgeously well-lit.

#5. The first thing I noticed was...how pretty Emily looks (especially 2nd row on the right). And then I saw it in your caption too! :)

#4. GAWD. That librarian scene still gives me cold sweats. The height difference has to be on purpose, so David can look at Emily with those half-lidded bedroom eyes. And to be fair, she did try it out after he left... ;-)

#3. I wish that scene didn't remind me so much of Mulder and Scully in Small Potatoes :(
But it was outstanding acting on both their parts.

#2. I just thought about how cute that scene was the other week, only I couldn't remember where it was from. Thank you!

#1. Guh. That scene = love. Both for it, and in it. :)

DB knocked that scene out of the ballpark with his 'little boy lost' look and the lush, unhurried, vibrant eyesex with Emily. The way she goes from happy to see him, to sober and serious is a thing of beauty too.

Interesting that you mentioned the operating room request being an attempt on his part to give her some control, rather than go nuts in the waiting room; I hadn't thought of it that way, but it rings true. Oh, Booth...taking care of others even when everyone is supposed to be taking care of you? This is why we love you. *smooch*

Thanks for this! Just what the doctor ordered today.

L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 04:02 pm (UTC)
The lighting on Bones is the best! It's really vibrant.

Scene #1...gah, I could go on forever about it. The first time I saw it I thought right away that Booth wasn't just asking her to be in the operating room for himself. That just jumped out at me. Of course he'd look out for what she needs in that moment, he cares about her and he knew that she was scared too. So sweet!

You're welcome. ;)

YES. That is totally what they were probably thinking. Spot on. :)

I know, I love that scene simply for the fact that he was so pissed at her. We've never seen that before, it was their first big fight. Just so angsty and great.
obrien_blueobrien_blue on August 18th, 2009 02:49 pm (UTC)
These are great!

#1 - The look on his face when he says, "Yeah, but you're a genius, and that's good enough for me." DB brings it home with that; it's just this trusting, open, desperate look. Booth just wants her to be there. He just KNOWS that her being there will make it better. SO, so good.

#5 - I love banter in this one. "There's no one else I would trust..." and Brennan smiles, and Booth goes, "Do you want more?" And Brennan, totally knowing she's being played says, "No, that will be sufficient." LOVE.
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 04:10 pm (UTC)
I think scene #1 was some of David's best acting of the season. He was so vulnerable, and there were really no words needed. He sold it just with his expressions.

LOL, I wonder how much more he would have given her to convince her to help him out. He's such a sweet-talker. She knew she might as well give in. Usually I think Brennan's got Booth wrapped around her finger, but in this scene it showed that it's also the other way around.

Also, when he gets his by Dr. Collar, and she's all concerned about him, and then he just tells her, "You're the only smart person I like." It felt like they were already together, in that moment.

You SO picked the BEST moments. THE BEST. The only one I would add would be an earlier scene in that same ep - when Booth tells her that Collar is hot for her, and that people leave marks on each other. It ends in on of my favorite B/B lines ever. "You heard me, but you just didn't understand me."/"I wonder that about you all of the time."

Lord that was awesome. You're right in that the end scenes tend to be epic. These scenes *were* awesome, I can't wait to get my DVD's so I can rewatch all these ;-D

Thanks for sharing!
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 04:12 pm (UTC)
Can't wait for the DVD's either. You're welcome! :)

Great picks. Thank you so much for sharing. I am going to link to this on my other blog if that is all right with you? It is a great example of why I love "Bones" so much!

Thanks! Sure, you can put it on your blog. :)

Oh my!

This was so wonderful dear! I loved this a lot ♥

These moments truly are some of the best, I really can't think of any loved more, and your commentary was most excellent.

Good job!
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D

Ohh this had the awesome-sauce topping!

Number 3 just breaks my fangirl heart =( Her face in pic 4 says it all. To her, she's just telling him what she heard, like it's no big deal, and she's completely stunned that he's hurt by it...but then she turns around immediately and calls him back when he starts to leave and she goes and push Jared off the stool and all is happee again <3.
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 05:34 pm (UTC)
I know! That scene makes me so sad. She was totally stunned, but she made it up to him later with that great birthday speech!
morebonesbb_ones on August 18th, 2009 04:37 pm (UTC)
You really made a good choice... #5 is totally awesome, you're right about the light and Emily *is* gorgeous... #2 is just lovely... And in both scenes they are exuding trust in each another... They care so much...
#1... Do I have to say something about it?? You named it The Guh!scene... that says it all. It was like the top of all eyesex, no... not eyesex, *eyelovemaking*, ever. And I liked your explanation about him asking her to enter W/him in the OR, I hadn't thought about it... It may be... with of course his need to have her near...
L.foolishy on August 18th, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
Total *eyelovemaking*!! Glad my explanation gave you something to think about. :)
