  • What a great way to end the season! I only wish there was some GSR to go with it, and I don't mean the kind Nick found on the chair.

    • Grissom: You rang? Greg: Yeah. Yeah. Blood flex from the safe deposit box. (takes the paper, his hands shaking.) Two distinct samples, only got one hit though. Uh, the primary sample belongs to Vivian Verona. Cocktail waitress. She was killed on the top floor of old Pike's Gambling hall about two years ago. There's a report. Grissom: Multiple puncture wounds, different depths, possible two knifes. Greg: I pulled the crime scene photos for you too. The case is still pending. Murder weapons never found. Now, the secondary blood sample came N.D. Could be the killer. I say murder's messy. (His hands are visibly shaking) Grissom: Greg. Your hands are shaking. Greg: No they're not. Grissom: Hold your hands up. Greg: Uh... They've been shaking ever since... (He points to the lab that is being repaired after the explosion last episode) Can't really make it stop. Grissom: Is it affecting your work? Greg: Uh, if I was bomb expert, maybe. No, I think I have it under control. Grissom: It will stop. If you need me, I'll be around. Greg: Okay.

    • Brass: My guess is Sam needed a job done, he came to you. Rob Rubio: You know, when I get out of here, I'm going to take pleasure in putting air in your head. Brass: Let me put a fact in yours. So, here's the deal. You give up your boss, you get to spend the rest of your life in a jail cell, not on death row. You left a lot of yourself behind, killer. Rob Rubio: I'll take death row. I'll live longer.

    • Nick: These don't look like your ordinary pair. I mean, look at the blades. They're almost double the size of the handles. Warrick: What's the purpose of scissors that long? Grissom: Murder. Catherine: (walks in) I hear scissors, I hear murder. What did I miss? Grissom: We may have the murder weapon. Sara: (walks in) Hey, Vivian Verona worked for Sam Braun, she was a cocktail waitress at Pike's Gambling Hall. She was murdered the night before it was imploded in one of the penthouse suite. Nick: Sounds like somebody wanted her to disappear in the rubble. Bet you Braun hired his own clean-up crew for that one. Sara: The pyro guys found her on their last walk-through. They assigned a CSI, but the case ran cold before it even got started. There was no suspect and no motive. Grissom: (staring at the monitor) Warrick, enhance the blade area. Warrick: Hmm, let me see if I can flip it around so we're not looking at an eye chart. Grissom: R-p-r-t. Catherine: Rampart.

    • Brass: Triple homicide in the desert. Grissom: Old-time Vegas. We found Tommy "the aspirin" out here. Remember him? Used to make his boss' headaches disappear. Catherine: Until they made him disappear. Grissom: I think this is the origin of the word "termination." There's the corporate way, and the way of the gun.

    • Bobby: Long guns are only registered to the person who makes the initial purchase ... and the serial numbers aren't recorded. Grissom: Impossible to trace, so it's a dead end. Bobby: Well, forensically, yeah, but not cognitively. See, shooting someone from long range, and taking out the engine of a radio car while it is hauling ass ... you're looking at one sharp shooter. And that kind of training only comes from ... Grissom: The military.
