They tell Sweets the story of their first case leading to a series of flash backs to their first real case, which show the formation and evolution of their relationship, as well as the relationships of the other Jeffersonian workers. While telling Sweets the story he discovers that they kissed for the first time after getting drunk. Sweets, outraged that they didn't tell him this, says that Booth should make the first move to begin a relationship with Brennan, since his conclusion is still the same that the two of them are in love with one another. They then leave the room where outside they talk about what Sweets had written in his book about them, Booth says he's "the gambler" and tells Brennan he wants to give them a shot. After Brennan saying that the FBI might not let work together anymore, Booth objects saying "Don't do that.", then kisses Brennan. Brennan pushes Booth away saying no, that he thinks he is protecting her but he is the one that needs protection from her, Booth then tells her that he has to move on no matter how long it takes for him to fall in love with someone else.
