  • Good storyline, detective work was aces however the new actor brought in to replace Grissom seemed awfully cozy with everyone awfully quickly, not very realistic in my opinon.

  • The departure of Grissom makes for less-than-awesome material.

  • Quotes (13)

    • Doc Robbins: I reviewed that Jane Doe autopsy from '75. Keppler: That was fast. Doc Robbins: Well I'm sure the original examination was too. M.E. was a hack named Sam Bernard. He, uh, retired a little while after I started. Once saw him do a Y with a scalpel in one hand and a hot dog in the other. Keppler: Take it he wasn't known for his, uh, rigorous analysis. Doc Robbins: He was known for liking hotdogs. (Keppler chuckles)

    • Catherine: Dr. Dave's smile is perfect. Keppler: Would you go to a dentist with bad teeth?

    • Keppler: In theory, as the killer gets more and more comfortable after each act, the locations of the bodies should spiral outward from one central point. Warrick: I'll tell 'ya one thing your dump sites do have in common. Keppler: What's that? Warrick: When the bodies were found in the location they were at the time had the highest crime rate in the city. Keppler: Smart. Your crime center seems to move around here a lot, huh? Warrick: Well, in Vegas new is old in 5 years. Old is history in 10, and nothin' ever seems to leave a mark. Keppler: Sounds refreshing.

    • Greg: So what's the verdict on this Keppler guy? (Catherine gives him a look) What? You're usually pretty quick to size people up. Catherine: The jury's still out but he knows what he's doing.

    • Catherine (about the victim): This girl's barely outta high school. Keppler: Catnip. Catherine: Excuse me? Keppler: The way they attract men at that age, it's like catnip. Catherine: That's a terrifying thought. Keppler: You have kids? Catherine: A daughter, fifteen. Keppler: You must be a hit on career day.

    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: By allowing Dave to assist in preparing his own dental impression, it would be considered compromised evidence.

    • Goof: When the CSI's are questioning Dr. Dave about his dental impressions and they show him the "modified" overlay. He slaps his hand down on top of it- this is not Dr. Dave's hand. Notice how the hand is much thinner and has longer nails. Dr. Dave's hand a very pudgy and has very short nails.

    • Goof: When Catherine is washing the body of Jane Doe 2007, you can clearly see the dead girl's iguana tattoo on her right ankle. Sofia also tells the parents that "there was a tattoo on the her right ankle". However, the missing persons report for Veronica Sorensen says the tattoo was on her left ankle.

    Allusions (1)

    • Episode Title: Sweet Jane The title of this episode is a reference to a song by the Velvet Underground while the name Jane evidently refers to the number of Jane Does involved in this case. The song was written by Lou Reed, who started as a sideman with the Underground before getting rid of John Cale and taking over leadership of the band. The version of the song used in the episode is performed by the Cowboy Junkies.
