  • An interesting episode, but there is still that flare is missing that Grissom brings to the show.

  • Quotes (16)

    • Sofia: Have you ever followed up on any of the patients who received parts from the Silver Hills Mortuary? Ty: No. That's the hospital's job. But as far as I know, none of the recipients have ever complained. Nick: Maybe that's 'cause they're not around anymore. We followed up on several patients who received Silver Hills bone and tissue from your clinic and now seven of them are dead. Three from hepatitis, three from cancer, and one AIDS-related. The same thing ironically killed the donors. Sofia: One of those victims was a 15-year-old healthy high school soccer player. You gave him a contaminated kneecap. Ty: Oh, my God. (scene cut, then back) You've got nothing on me. I don't care what that... little body snatcher tells you. Sofia: The families are going to sue you and your company into bankruptcy. Ty: They can try. That is what signed release forms are for. Nick: You're reopening a very nasty, old wound for them, now. Ty: Uh-uh. I didn't do anything. Sofia: Because of you... they're going to have to rebury their mother, their father, their son, their daughter. (Ty scoffs) Nick: Ty... let me tell you something. I'm gonna come down to that clinic... and I'm going to go through it piece by piece by piece. And if something doesn't jibe, I can assure you, sir, I will find it.

    • Keppler: This guy isn't even a doctor. Nick: He did drop out of chiropractic school. Keppler: You're telling me that any Tom, Dick, or Harry with a sign can open up a tissue bank? Nick: If you're FDA registered, yeah. Keppler: How do you get FDA registered? Nick: You just fill out a form.

    • Sofia: So, you admit to digging up Roger Lapinsky? Ross: I've been out two months and the best job I can get is five bucks an hour welding engine parts together. They wouldn't even let me flip burgers. Heidi just had the baby. It wasn't like it was gonna hurt anyone. We dug up someone my age, took him to work. Made him look like me. And then we torched it. All I was looking for was a fresh start. Best way to make it happen was to kill myself. Keppler: Should've stuck with the five bucks an hour.

    • Host: Would you like a Meet Book or do you have a steady host? Sara: Uh, actually it's my first time. What exactly goes on here? Host: This is a host club, a place where men entertain women. It's the first of its kind in Las Vegas. They started in Japan. Take your pick. (he holds out a binder to her, she looks through it) Hosts get paid by the bottle. There's a two-bottle minimum. Bottles range from $50 to $5,000. Sara: What does a $5,000 bottle of champagne taste like? Host: We only sell one brand of champagne. It's the host attached to the bottle that determines price. Sara: Oh. Everything is legal in Clark County. Host: Miss, we don't sell sex here. Sara: What do you sell? Host: A relationship. Isn't that what most women want? Sara: I don't know.

    • Doc Robbins: PVC piping is sometimes used to replace bones that have been donated for transplants. Keppler: So that the body looks right at open casket? Doc Robbins: Right. Greg: They use umbrellas and broomsticks for that, too? Doc Robbins: Not that I've seen. Keppler: Wait a minute, they killed the guy and torched him, there's no open casket. What's the point of stuffing the body? Nick: Looks like the long bones are gone... ditto for the spine... tendons and cartilage... most major veins... phew. Doc Robbines: They took the heart valves too. Keppler: So somebody murders an ex-con, then commits arson to make it look like an accident just so that they can harvest his bones and tissues? Doc Robbins: That's big business --disc replacement, joint replacement, bypasses-- more demand than supply. Greg: Why leave the kidneys, the heart and the liver? They're worth big money, too. Doc Robbins: Organ donation is heavily regulated. Bone and tissue aren't.
