  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (19)

    • Catherine: So, when are you going to do your final proficiency? Greg: Every time I ask Grissom, he says: Next time out. Then I end up here.

    • Grissom: I think we're done. Catherine: No actual crime was committed. The kidnapping wasn't real. Sofia: Nicole Jensen's death was plenty real. Janelle Macklin's ultimately responsible for putting into motion the events that led to Nicole's death. Grissom: Well, the broadcast's out on Janelle and her car. When she turns up, she'll have to answer for it. Sofia: Well, that's ... (pauses) ... highly unsatisfying. (she stands up and puts Grissom's bowtie on the table) You forgot this at the suite. I fixed it for you. You never know when you might need to get dressed up again. (she leaves, Grissom watches her go. Cath picks up the bowtie) Catherine (amused): She glued it. Just keep in mind, Gil, that she is on Ecklie's team.

    • Warrick: Hey, guys, I got a work card hit off of that maple syrup print. Catherine: Let me guess. Mrs. Butterworth?

    • Catherine: Why are you talking to yourself? Grissom: I'm trying a new technique. Catherine: Is it working? Grissom: I have no idea.

    • Sofia: Teenager abuses drugs and/or booze ... There's a news flash. Contusions on her neck. Grissom: And the position suggests she was grabbed from behind. Sofia (reading the wrist band on the victim): "A night to remember." Grissom: A night to forget.

    • Grissom: The best laid plans... Speaking of keeping the teenagers safe in the hotel room, when they then go and do drugs, Grissom alludes to the quote "The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley ('often go awry')" by Scottish poet Robbie Burns.

    • Miranda: That girl was Kryptonite to me. Kryptonite is a substance which can harm Superman, as Nikki could harm Miranda's social standing.
