    • Warrick (to Greg): What are you reading? Greg (looks at magazine): This is Pink. Pink this is Warrick. (to the magazine) You know how hot you are!

    • Nick: Why me? Grissom I don't think it was about you, Nick. Or Jane Galloway, for that matter. I think it was more about Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. His premise is that social beings strive to belong. In Nigel's mind, Jane Galloway was someone he could control which was okay for a while but you ... you were someone he could actually become. See, Maslow's Fifth Tier of the Hierarchy is Self-Actualization. The problem for Nigel is that you would have to die in order for that to happen. Or else he would. Sara: Twenty-five years to life, Nick. It's over. Nick: It's not over for me. It's over for Jane Galloway.

    • Nigel: Nick, you know what a nine-millimeter slug does to a skull at close range? You know? (Nigel pulls his gun back and holds it in front of his face) Nick: Yeah. Nigel: Blow it right apart, right? Brains like strawberry swirled. Whipped cream, everywhere. And you. (Nigel points the gun back at Nick) You'd have to scoop that stuff up, right? Yeah, little pieces of skull and bone and brains. All in individual baggies with the victim's name on the label. Nick: You know I don't want to disappoint you, Nigel, but this isn't the first time I've had a gun in my face. How do you want this to end, Nigel? Nigel: How do I want this to end? I want you to be able to remember my name.

    • Warrick: Grissom, this guy was right there. I could have had him. Grissom: You helped out Nick. That was the right thing to do. Warrick: Doesn't feel like the right thing. Catherine: You know, Nick was alone. The stalker could have killed him and didn't. Grissom: Yeah, I wonder why. Let's go back over there. Warrick: I'm going with you. Grissom: No, no. You need to calm down a little. Talk to Nick when he wakes up.

    • Grissom: You know that blonde fiber we were looking at? Warrick: Fiberglass insulation -- comes in pink and yellow. But you already knew that. Is that why you're calling? Grissom: Not really. I was checking a phone line. But good work.

    Trivia (6)

    • Goof: When the bathtub is first examined, Catherine takes out her swab to get a sample of the hair dye. The q-tip is dirty when she takes it out of the supposedly sterile box, but is clean again when she goes to collect the sample.

    • Goof: Satellite TV isn't cable TV, yet the dishes on the houses say Luna Cable.

    • Nick's apartment is seen for the first time. George Eads, who plays Nick, requested that some trophies be removed and books added in the apartment in order to match his CSI profession and get rid of the high school atmosphere he felt. For the final outlook, the writers addressed his concerns.

    • Goof: When you get a close up of Nick as he's sitting in the wheelchair you see he has a cut on his cheek. It's obviously still an 'open wound' that in reality would require some sort of bandage, yet there's no bandage over it. Not even butterfly strips.

    • Morris Pearson: Green tea... green tea! Does that mean anything to you? Right before Nigel and Morris crash through the ceiling we see Nick's carpet, which has a green letter 'T' on it.

    • Nick: You know I don't want to disappoint you, Nigel, but this isn't the first time I've had a gun in my face. The reference to "scooping little pieces of skull," as well as Nick's quote about having had a gun pointed at him before, echoes events from the 1994 film Pulp Fiction. This also refers to the Season 1 episode "Who Are You?" where Nick has a woman pull a gun on him and aim it at his head.
