Well, Bones fans, it's finally happened. After eight seasons of will-they-won't-they action, two proposals, and one lovechild, the wedding of the 2013-2014 television season - among the crime dramas, at least - went off (mostly) without a hitch. And really, the show creators owe it to us. You know that moment of pure bliss you experience when two television characters who are obviously meant for each other finally give into the inevitable? Thanks to Emily Deschanel's unexpected pregnancy, we the viewers were denied the joy of watching that moment. Luckily, the show has provided us with no shortage of adorable exchanges between the couple, so as Bones and Booth jet off on their honeymoon, let's take a brief walk down memory lane to remember a handful of our favorite B&B moments.
It was the 100th episode, that magical moment that TV shows always save something special for. Like, you know, the lead characters getting together. And while this episode turned out to be an epic tease on that front, it did treat us to footage of their first kiss - a steamy, tequila-induced, rain-soaked affair.
Episode: Season 2, Episode 8
The Woman in the Sand
The introduction of everyone's favorite undercover duo, Tony and Roxy! The whole episode was full of awesome, awkward moments, but the best is the look in Booth's eyes when Bones steps out in a clingy little black dress. Sparks: prepare to fly.
In case everyone wasn't already in love with Caroline, this scene clinched it. She got us the first on-air kiss between our favorite FBI agent and forensic anthropologist. And that little bit about swapping gum is the kind of writing that keeps us watching this show. Priceless.
Episode: Season 5, Episode 10
The Goop on the Girl
Well, if the writers weren't going to give us the satisfaction of seeing B&B together yet, at least they were having fun with it. And it definitely was fun to see Bones "forced" to undress Booth, in a scene that undoubtedly gave birth to a mountain of fan fiction…
Episode: Season 9, Episode 5
The Woman in White
The vows that everyone has waited 171 episodes to hear will certainly make even the most stony-eyed among us weep like a little girl… so if you haven't watched them yet, go do it. DO IT NOW!!! Just remember to keep tissues handy.
Obviously this is but a small sampling of the huge library of adorable B&B moments, so be sure to let us know in the comments which ones are your favorites!
