  • Quotes (18)

    • Warrick: This case is twisting me up. Interrogation room ... was a bust. Fife can lie better than I can tell the truth. Catherine: Better to know his lies before we go to trial. Warrick: I don't think it's going to trial. Catherine: We've got time. Seminal DNA's being processed as we speak. This case can break any minute. Warrick: I'm not giving up. I'm just being realistic. Catherine: Come on, you know, Warrick, we don't just call these cases rush 'cause we're in a hurry. It's a rush 'cause our pulse races, it's a rush when we nail the guy ... Warrick: I like that.

    • Sara: Grissom, um, I, um, wanted to talk to you about something. Grissom: Go ahead. Sara: Well, you know, I applied for the promotion for the key position. Grissom: Your application's on my desk. Sara: About that, I, um... I needed to know... I... I wanted to make sure, rather, that anything that happened or didn't happen between us won't be a factor. (Grissom looks confused) Never mind. I-I shouldn't have said anything. (Grissom still looks confused) I, um... I'm always over-talking around you. (Sara leaves the room, leaving Grissom still confused)

    • Hodges: Oh, hey! Hey, boss! Grissom: Yes? Hodges: I just ID'ed the substance from Rachel Lyford's wrist. Same substance found on the sheets. Grissom: Have you told Warrick? He's the lead on this. Hodges: Yeah, about Warrick, what exactly happened in court today? I tried to talk to him, he just shut down. Grissom: He just shut you down. What is the substance? Hodges: Uh ... wax.

    • Hodges: Hey, I heard about court today. Must have been embarrassing, huh? Warrick: Hodges, why'd you leave L.A. Again? Never mind, it's probably none of my business.

    • Sara: Uh, listen, I recognize the importance of this, but I'm in the middle of my own homicide investigation. Grissom: I'll talk to your detective. Explain the deal. Sara: Well, it's not about the detective. It's about my own responsibility. Grissom (sternly): I'm handing out assignments, Sara. It's not a negotiation.
