Behind The Heartwarming Proposal On The "Bones" Set

Boneheads forever. <3

Posted on

Goff had entered a competition in October to come to the set on the Fox lot with her boyfriend. She told him they were going to Disneyland.

Though Scott and Goff now live in Portland, for a time, they were dating long-distance while she worked in fish packaging in Alaska. They would watch Bones and talk about it afterward, more than 2,000 miles apart.

And he said YES!

"You can name your firstborn Bones," offered Ryan O'Neal, who plays Max Keenan on the series, from his chair.

"What's wrong with Booth?" asked David Boreanaz (Booth).

"B-nooth," offered Emily Deschanel (Brennan aka Bones herself).


She said yes! Truly egalitarian and Bones-y in style.


Since October, Scott's been calling Goff Gollum because of her preoccupation with rings, she said.

Goff said she hadn't expected so many people to be watching the proposal.

After she said that, Scott held her hands to warm them up.
