Air Date 9/13/05

When a badly decomposed corpse is found during the routine cleaning of a pond in Arlington National Cemetery, FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth hijacks renowned forensic anthropologist (and best selling novelist), Dr. Temperance Brennan, to help identify the body.

Brennan (or "Bones" as Booth likes to call her) has just arrived home from a two-month stint in Guatemala where she was identifying victims of genocide, and is in no mood to lend Booth a hand (she got burned the last time they worked together). Brennan refuses to help Booth unless he promises her full participation in the case. Reluctantly Booth agrees and their partnership is born.

At the crime scene, Brennan makes a preliminary identification of the victim with the help of her assistant Zack Addy. Brennan determines the body (mostly skeletonized) belongs to a woman between eighteen and twenty-three, race unknown. Pelvic bone shape gives sex. Epiphysis fusion gives age. Brennan can tell from bursitis in the shoulder that the victim was a tennis player.
