  • As he is about to head home from his stand up gig, a comedian named Adam finds a box in the club parking lot containing the body of a four year-old girl. The investigation brings the CSI team to the front door of a man who apparently has a lot to hide.

    • Hodges: Grissom! Grissom: What's our rule, Dave? Hodges: That it better be good, and this is.

    • Fat Guy: I mean it, man. You had me laughing my ass off. Greg: Thanks, man. If someone finds a size 54 ass, I'll have 'em put it on ice for 'ya.

    • Wendy: Okay. This one has a tag. Now... (hands hair follicular tag to Hodges) ... tag, you're it. Hodges: Is that what passes for DNA humor around here? Never thought I would miss Sanders.

    • Greg Fitzsimmons: Seriously, I love kids. Did you hug your kid today? Can I hug your kid? Can I hug your kid, sir? Angry Audience Member: You touch my kids, I'll kill you. Greg Fitzsimmons: Dude, it's a comedy show! I'm kidding. This is a joke. (the angry guy makes a gun motion with his hand at Greg) What? What was that? Oh... I see why you're so angry, that's your wife.

    • Greg Fitzsimmons: I would never hit my kids cause, you know, my father used to beat me. He didn't beat me too much. He beat me just right. You know, I remember the last time he really slapped me around, just getting up off the ground, thinking, "perfect." He really nailed it. Any more would have been barbaric. Any less I wouldn't be seeking the approval of you drunks. Parenting is hard and expensive. If you were to have a baby today and raise it all the way through college, it would cost you one million dollars. And that's why I feel like no woman should ever walk out of an abortion clinic with her head hung down in shame. You walk out of there like you just hit the lotto. I'm a winner.
