  • Quotes (9)

    • Hodges (seeing Greg's bowling ball that looks like a dice): Somebody's rearview mirrors a little lighter.

    • Nick: Time for a toast. Bowling is a family sport. I'd like to raise a glass to our CSI family. Cheers. (they all drink) But unfortunately, it's time to give the family a little ass-whoppin'. (they all laugh) Hodges: Oh, really?! Catherine: All of us? Ray: Be careful Nick, don't let your mouth write a check that your ass can't cash. Everyone: Ooh!

    • Catherine (after she bowls a gutter ball): I hate this! I hate this. That happens every single time! Hodges: Y'know, don't be afraid to rock the granny bowl, Cath.

    • Catherine (after Sara bowls and one pin is left): Ooh, Sara that pin is flippin' you off!

    • Shea: I wanted to give Chevy something that he'd never forget. It's shocking enough to find a human head in the ball rack, but when it's the head of someone you killed... unforgettable.

    • Devon Gummersall (Kyle "X" Chatts) previously guest starred as a different character in the Season 3 episode "One Hit Wonder ."

    • This is one of a small number of episodes that close on a lighthearted note with the CSI's having a bowling party. A previous example was found in the Season 8 episode "A La Cart" that involved a go-cart and at the close of that episode, the CSI's enjoy an evening at an indoor go-cart racing track.

    Trivia (4)

    • Goof: At the beginning when they show the bowling score between Chatts and Cigs, there are a couple of errors in Cigs' score. Additionally, the announcer's words and score don't match. 1) Frame 8: Shows a score of 217, but as frame 8 is a strike, no one can compute the score till the first ball of frame 10, which has yet to occur (currently blank). The score is 217, which means the first ball of frame 10 must be an 8. 2) Frame 9: Shows a score of 237, but as the frame is another strike, its score isn't computable till the second ball of frame 10. (Frame 10 is completely blank at this point.) As the score of frame 8 is 217 and the score of frame 9 is 237, this means the first ball of frame 10 will be an 8. The player will pick up the spare, and a third (and last ball of frame 10) will be necessary. 3) The announcer keeps talking about the possibility that Chatts can win, which he can't based upon the displayed score. The best Chatts can hope for is a tie, which will only happen should Cigs gutter the last ball of frame 10. The audio track and displayed score don't match. The score is an Anachronism to the action and announcer.

    • Goof: In bowling, a perfect game is 12-in-a-row not 10, as stated by the victim's girlfriend.

    • We learn that Brass has a Twitter page.

    • Greg's bowling ball bag reads, " '92 California State Championship Team Valley Ridge High School" Greg went to high school in California, was on his high school's bowling team, and is now 31-35 years old.

    Allusions (1)

    • David Hodges is drinking a White Russian at the bowling alley at the end of the episode. This is an allusion to the 1998 film The Big Lebowski in which Jeff Bridges' character (Jeff Lebowski) drinks White Russians.
