Booth’s old squint costume is one step closer to reality.

Bones returns Thursday with the penultimate episode of the season, and in this exclusive clip from the hour, Booth (David Boreanaz) is having a hard time dealing with the fact that his eyesight isn’t what it used to be. He can’t even tell Michigan Avenue from Missouri.

“Oh, well, it’s a state,” Booth grumbles.

He tries to blame his blurred vision on the beers he had last night, but Brennan (Emily Deschanel) isn’t buying it — and she isn’t about to let her husband risk his life behind the wheel to prove a point, either. Check out the clip above to witness her delightfully sarcastic response to that idea.

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