  • This episode had it all. Aliens, GSR, and a little recap from "Silence of the Lambs". Scary but funny and very interesting.

    • (Sara is reading the unsent letter from Grissom. Grissom voiceovers) Grissom: I don't know why I find it so difficult to express my feelings to you. Even though we're far apart I can see you as vividly as if you were here with me. I said I'll miss you and I do. As Shakespeare more ably wrote my sentiment in Sonnet 47. "Thyself away art resent still with me; for thou not father than my thoughts canst move, and I am still with them and they with thee; or, if thy sleep, thy picture in my sight, awakes my heart to heart's and eye's delight."

    • Shannon: Preston can't be killed. His cells don't die. He's over 4,000 years old. Brass: Oh, 4,000...the new 50!

    • Grisson: Hey, did Shannon Turner have a cat? Catherine: Yeah. Grissom: So did Hank Conners. Figures. Cats are a natural enemy of reptiles. Catherine (pauses to give Grissom a look of disbelief): I'll keep that in mind.

    • Brass: I'm just a phone booth away from changing into my tights and saving the world.

    • Preston: Chyna was sucking the life out of me. She deserved none of what she wanted and all of what she got in the end. I'm glad it took a long time for her to die. I can only imagine the pain. Brass: You know, everytime I think about leaving this job, a guy like you comes along and reminds me why I can't.
