  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (17)

    • Catherine: Smashed with a crowbar, shot by a crossbow, poisoned by shrimp, and now bitten by a snake.

    • Brass (about a suspect singing in interrogation): Do I look like Paula Abdul to you?

    • Nick: Hey, Catherine called and said that we might not be lookin' for a bullet no more. Sara: Did she happen to say what we are looking for? Nick: Not a bullet.

    • Sara (looking in the pool's filter): Beer caps, candy wrappers, cigarette butts, used condoms. This is one pool that I'm not feeling a pressing need to take a dip in. Nick: Me neither.

    • Greg: You know, I kind of feel bad for these girls. Hodges: Don't feel too bad. They have health benefits, good pay. The women get regular check-ups. The industry is well-regulated. As opposed to picking a hooker up off the street. Does she have a disease? Multiple diseases? Is she crazy? Is she gonna roll you? Where do you go? Do you do it in your car, behind a building, down a dark alley? So you drive around, scared out of your mind, finally get the nerve up, pick one you like, call her over, she gets in. Next thing you know, you're down on the pavement, cuffed, because she's an undercover cop, but luckily you were three months shy of your eighteenth birthday so when you call your mom to come get you, it doesn't go on my permanent record. Greg (momentarily speechless): ... Okay.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: The "arrows" which were shot are clearly arrows. Arrows are shot from bows. The shooter is clearly using a crossbow, however. The similar objects shot by crossbows are bolts, or quarrels, and are shorter and generally much thicker through the shaft, partly to take the extra stress of the force used by a crossbow. They also would not have made a narrow hole through the throat as a result of this.

    Allusions (3)

    • Grissom said that the victim (Happy Morales) once fought Leroy Steel. This was one of the victims in the Season 3 episode "Fight Night."

    • Happy's death has many parallels with that of Rasputin. Happy is shot, hit with a crow bar, suffers an allergic reaction, poisoned then ends up in the swimming pool. Rasputin was poisoned, beaten, shot then thrown in a river. He also had an allergy to sugar, but it isn't known if that contributed to his death. He also had an enormous sexual appetite, and was rumoured to have a relationship with the wife of the Tsar. Similarities again with Happy's use of the cat house and Binky's wife.

    • (the suspect sings a song to Brass) Brass: Do I look like Paula Abdul to you? This is a reference to the reality-competition show American Idol in which three judges, one of which is Paula Abdul, get sung to on a regular basis.
