Though they appeared to be looking at him, they were really looking at each other. And though they spoke of just a kiss, their eyes said so much more. Deep in the pit of his stomach, Sweets realized something: when Brennan had walked away from the bar that night, Booth had gotten in the cab with her.

Just something that popped into my head mid-episode. I don't own Bones.
