Hart Hanson talks "Bones"

There's been a lot of talk about Booth and Brennan and their relationship. You sort of blew off the “Moonlighting” curse with them. How did you decide to do away with having a couple madly in love?
Booth and Brennan
In Season 6, we knew that Brennan and Booth would sleep together.... But then Emily, God bless her, came and whispered into my ear that she was pregnant. I thought, "This is not a good show for hiding a pregnancy." I worked on "Judging Amy" when Amy Brenneman was pregnant and she could just wear big black robes and sit behind a desk. But we couldn't hide it, so I realized we should just make her pregnant.
The “Moonlighting” curse is, you watch a couple go back and forth in a romantic comedy way -- vacillate over whether they’re going to sleep together; then they do, and then they become something that I hate, which is a googly-eyed, I’m-in-love, I’m-the-only-person-who-has-ever-been-in-love, I've-never-been-so-happy type of person. I don’t even want to go to dinner with people who have recently fallen in love because you just want to kill them.

I realized, "Oh, we don't have to do that." We are going to slam them into a relationship because of the baby and I think in our season ender this year, Brennan says something to Booth that is very, very profound about their relationship.
