  • THis was a really good episode. It had a lot of great scenes and two great cases. The cases had a lot of turns, and they also had a lot of interesting bits involved with them. Spoilers- beware.

    • Stella: Leaves are like fingerprints. No two are alike.

    • Mac: Now you had something Mr. Beaumont. Something that some of us who recently lost a loved one never had. Time. Time to make the most of what was left. That's what's precious.

    • Angie Watson: You have very beautiful eyes y'know that? Flack: Thank you, now why don't you tell me about the night you got collared. Angie Watson: You got a girlfriend? Flack: Who did you give your gun to, Angie? Angie Watson: I've been here before. Some cop or DA gets me to tell'em what they need to know, makes a lot of promises, and how they're gonna get me out, a week later I'm still hearin' the same kind of trouble I was in before I said anything. Flack: We'll work something out. Would these eyes lie?

    • Mac: Dr. Beaumont, you have the right to remain silent. Use it!

    Trivia (5)

    • Mac: (To Dr. Beaumont) Now you had something Mr. Beaumont. Something that some of us who recently lost a loved one never had. Time. Time to make the most of what was left. That's what's precious. As learnt in episode 1x01 Blink, Mac lost his wife in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11th, 2001.

    • Goof: When Charles Cooper is being told he handed his business card to Lillian Stanwick, Lindsay explains he had held it with his thumb and forefinger, like one normally would. However, in the flashback showing Cooper dropping the business card in the fishbowl, he uses his middle and forefinger, not his thumb. Of course, it could just be Lindsay was imagining it that way, momentarily forgetting what they had previously found.

    • Mac and Danny apparently need a homeless man to help them rig a ridiculous contraption to extract the bullet from the sewer; what happened to the telescopic magnet from 1x12, Recycling, that Stella had in her case?

    • Goof: When Lindsay shows Charles Cooper Lilian Stanwick's drivers license, it says she was born in 1985. Later Lindsay tells Stella that Lilian is 22 which is a mistake since the episode aired in 2006 which would make her 21.

    • Vanessa Ferlito (Aiden Burn) is seen in a flashback.

    Allusions (2)

    • The title Live or Let Die is a slightly varied version of the song by Guns & Roses titled Live And Let Die. The song was originally written by Paul McCartney for use in the James Bond film of the same name.

    • Title: The episode title is, of course, a takeoff on the title of the 1973 James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, starring Roger Moore. The events in the episode have nothing to do with the movie plot.
