I had my kids on set and I was like, "Uhhh, you should go back. There was a lot going on. I almost broke my leg; I fell on a steel bar and I kept going.

I got a huge gash on my leg. It was very hard, physically; more because of the chaos of the week in the lab. It was dark and dreary and smoky. It wasn't the lab we knew. It was easier to say goodbye. That's another step that was nice in a way: And okay, that's sad, but we're still going to be in the lab next week. And then it was like, you can't sit down and be comfortable. Nothing feels comfortable about that; nothing feels like the lab we knew. We're so used to working and filming in it [and on breaks] you'll just go sit in your chair.

But you couldn't put anything down, it was such a mess. It was easier to say goodbye for that reason. David went there the other day and sent me a picture of it.
There's like one wall up. And half of the catacombs. I tried to get into the FBI stages and the doors were locked. They locked him out of the FBI! I was, like, kicking. Did you walk over to the other side? People walked by going, "What's wrong with that guy? Did you get Booth's bobblehead? I'll never tell you what happened to him. I don't know where he is. But I will say he's in good hands.
What did you guys take from the set? I took only a couple of things. I took something and I gave it to David as a joke. I wrapped it all nice. He was always creeped out by the mask things.
I laughed so hard when I opened it. I wrapped it up as a nice gift. I'll get you back.
EXCLUSIVE: Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz Reveal What They're Going to Miss Most About 'Bones'
On a personal level, what will you take from this working relationship going forward? It's such a give and take between the two of us. There is a cadence and a rhythm that was always maintained with the two of us, finding that relationship in whatever moment we were working on. It's really the hard work that took us on weekends away from our families to go back and give the writers or [series creator] Hart [Hanson] notes.
And continue to do that. And to be able to play that character through all of those changes…even doing a series, which is obviously longer than a film where you have an hour and a half or two hours to explore a character.
We have hours; that was really special. See the entire 'Bones' special before it airs on television, where the producers and cast of the series, including David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, look back at the long-running drama. What does it mean to you to have Bones be Fox's longest-running live-action series?
We never got the credit we deserved. We were the little engine that could. I feel proud that we did so many episodes, that we were on for so long; it's quite an accomplishment. I feel like our fans were always so loyal and they always found us wherever we were, no matter how many times they bounced us around.
Sometimes it was really frustrating because we weren't appreciated by the network. But I also now realize they probably knew how strong we were and knew they could bounce us around to different times and we'd survive.
So there you go. But we never expected to go this long, but it happened. Sometimes it goes so long you think it will never end, and then it does end at a certain point. I'm proud of it. The other day, I saw the two stages we worked in, and they have the plaques. And we're on those plaques! We're on those plaques now. It's a big thing to be immortalized on a plaque outside of a stage. It's a testimony to everyone who came on the show—guest stars, people who were on the crew for a week or whatever—they all touched their energy into the show and made it move forward.
It seems unclear whether or not the case was ever settled. Boreanaz admitted he had been selfish and arrogant, while Bergman said she had become emotionally disconnected. The pair affirmed that Boreanaz had come forward to his wife a year before going public, but that a perceived extortion attempt prompted them to clear the air with fans.
Bergman said that she realized fixing their relationship was not going to be easy but she felt that it was the right thing to do. Couples therapy seems to have paid off for these two, as they're still together 8 years later.
Deschanel received harsh criticism and an onslaught of concerns when she chose to remain vegan during her pregnancy.
Deschanel expressed frustration with the outcry, saying that there was no reason for her decision to be so controversial. The actress worked closely with a nutritionist to make sure that she received the proper nutrients even while filming. This often meant supplementing her meals with quick and easy and nutritious smoothies.
Other characters are popular, of course and, yes, fans do tune in for the plot twists and murder solving, but it's often the undeniable chemistry between the will-they-won't-they-they-did couple that is most often cited as the heart of the show. That's what makes it so surprising that actors Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz almost lost the roles to other people.
Boreanaz came in and wowed execs, despite having a disastrous audition. It was Deschanel's chemistry with Boreanaz that helped her to win the role of Brennan from another actress who was preferred for the part.

They pointed to her intellect and awkward conversational skills as evidence. However, the series creator, Hart Hanson, has confirmed that Brennan was based on a friend of his who had been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Hanson said they felt it would be a bad idea to give Brennan a "label" on a network TV show.David Boreanaz Complete Interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan 2017
He would have been more than happy to outright admit to Brennan's Asperger's had the show been picked up on a cable network instead.
