    • Adam: She gets a piano wire and I get a bronze, metal thing with bumps.

    • Stella: (coming in holding a box) Mac, if I told you to go home and get some rest, you would say... Mac: What's in the box? Stella: Of course you would.

    • Nova Kent: I lost that music box about a year ago. Danny: Are you kidding me? You can't come up with a better lie than that? Nova Kent: I move a lot, four different places in the past year. I've given up junk, throw things away. Stella: You specifically requested that the music box played Mozart's first menuet. It seems strange that something with that kind of sentimental value would be thrown away. Nova Kent: Yeah well, I cried for three days when I realized it was gone. Danny: You're killing me right now...

    • Adam: Kendall! Hey..uh..wake up..uh, we're late for work. We gotta, we gotta get up, we're late for work. Kendall: (waking up and seeing that they are both in their underwear) Did we?...We didn't...? Adam: Oh! No, no, no. I mean, I...uh..I wish it was yes, yes, yes but sadly, no. Kendall: (lays back down)...Hmmmm, ten more minutes. Adam: No, no, no, no. No more minutes! Come on! Get up, get up! Come on, let's go! Up, up, up, yes, let's go! (helps Kendall up from the couch) Must...fight....crime...

    • Hawkes: What about the trace I collected from her arm? Lindsay: Latex. More specifically, condom spray. Danny: (Amused) 'Scuse me? What? I didn't catch that. (Sheldon looks baffled.) Lindsay: Liquid rubber (Holds the spray can, smiling). German engineering at its finest. Hawkes: I'm not sure I understand. Lindsay: Well, allow me to demonstrate (Grabs a big test-tube). Contrarily to what you might have heard, science definitely does matter (Starts spraying the content of the can on the test-tube). Simply, apply like so. Allow a few moments for maximum drying time and... boom! Instant condom. Hawkes: Are you serious? A spray-on condom? Danny: What... where does the... the... (Points at the top of the test-tube) Now how... never mind.

    • French episode title: Du Sang pour la Liberté, meaning Blood for Liberty.

    • Chase Kim, who plays Lee Nakashima, also appears in the CSI: Miami episode In Plane sight. Charlie Koznick, who plays Anthony Colton, also appears in the CSI: Miami episode Dude, Where's My Groom?.

    • Season 4 has a title page, both in the visual and in the audio, since the theme song Baba O'Reilly has been remixed.

    • The Statue of Liberty was built on stage. In order to shoot in the head the statue it was made to be 16 feet instead of 10 feet. The size of Lady Liberty's head is 10 feet.

    • The promotional cast photo for season 4 is based on a photo called Lunch Atop a Skyscraper photographed in 1932 by Charles C. Ebbets. You can look at the cast photo on CBS official CSI:NY website.

    Trivia (11)

    • The man inside the timpani should have been able to easily take its head off after it was modified since it must be hard to stuff a person in one and then artfully put the head back on.

    • Even though enough time has gone by for the lab to be rebuilt after last season's finale, there's no continuity to Danny's severe hand injury and Adam's physical and psychological torture from 3x24 Snow Day. Even though there has been enough time for their injuries to clear up, Adam would most likely have some trauma and Danny would suffer from his fingers having been badly broken since as he revealed himself in 1x22 The Closer a hand injury was what ended his baseball career after he broke his wrist. His career depends a big deal in his ability to use his hands to do detailed job.

    • Adam can be seen wearing one dog tag.

    • Even though Mac has gone to London on vacation to spend time with Peyton, he appears to be alone in his hotel room every time he gets the 333 calls and flashbacks can be seen to at least three of them. He doesn't make any reference to how Peyton reacted to them or if she knows about them.

    • Goof: The coroner finds a ticket stub in the throat of the victim whose tongue was cut out, but since this man died in the ER, wouldn't ER staff have found it while trying to stop the bleeding and save his life?

    Allusions (4)

    • The timpani storyline is reminiscent of Takashi Mike's horror movie Audition.

    • Stella: You specifically requested that the music box played Mozart's first menuet. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was a prolific and influential Austrian composer of the Classical era.

    • Lindsay: I hear Denny's is looking to hire some socially awkward scientists. Denny's is the largest family restaurant chain in the United States.

    • Episode Title: Can you hear me now? The title refers to the Verizon Wireless advertising campaign where they show a Verizon technician traveling to remote and strange places, carrying his cell phone and asking "Can you hear me now? Good."
