Letter grades just aren’t what they used to be.

In this exclusive clip from Thursday’s Bones, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) hit a parenting milestone: their daughter’s first report card. With Brennan’s book smarts and Booth’s athleticism combined, it’s no surprise that Christine is killing it at school, but the row of E+ (for “exemplary”) marks confuses Booth.

“I don’t know what that means,” he worries. “That’s like one step up from an F. That’s bad.”

Check out the full clip above to watch the parents sort it out — with a little help from an adorable callback to the season 6 premiere.

Bones airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
