  • Second part of the special episode.

    Andrew Lipstiz and Carol Mendelsohn wrote this episode and directed by Richard J.Lewis. Continuing from the previous episode, the suspects of the two murders, a husband and wife, are killed in their own house which was being watched by two undercover officers working under Jim Brass. The two officers were missing during the murder because they were called in to a possible shooting which turns out to be a hoax. Sara and Catherine are pulled off the murder case to investigate the death of a college student found bloated in a bathtub. Although it is better than the first part but it is kind of disappointing.moreless
  • Overall a very good episode.

    This episode leads on right after the last one, the killers that the team wanted for the previous murders are all dead but the team have to work out how and why someone would want them dead.

    Meanwhile Sara and Catherine investigate when the body of a man is found bloated in his bath tub, after a little while it becomes clear that the man may not have been murdered but he was hit on the back of the head several hours before he died. They catch the guy and with Greg's help Grisom is able to pin the murder on someone who you will least expect. Overall this was a good episode.moreless

  • I liked this episode and I'm already starting to think that this season is going to be the best one so far.

    I liked this episode and I'm already starting to think that this season is going to be the best one so far. I just wish that I watched the first part so that I could understand what was going on.

    So from what I understood, a couple of serial killers were murdered. And Grissom thinks that a cop may have done the job. Especially when Greg finds something that may actually prove that he's right.

    The thing I loved about this episode is the tension between Brass & Grissom, who have been very good friends throughout the series. Grissom thinking that it was an inside job & Brass defending his own. And neither will back down.

    I loved it when the the officer appears at Grissoms window while he's backing out of the parking lot and threatens him. "Someday, you're going to need me or my buddies at a scene ... and wouldn't you know it... we'll all hit traffic on the way."

    Greg gets to go out in the field again, but as always, poor Greg gets picked on to do the dirty work.

    It was also nice to see Sara & Cath work together. Their case was pretty interesting and I loved the "It's raining man juice" "Hallelujah" Although the *body soup* in the tub was gross, so was the bloated body.

    The end of the epsiode was interesting, I'm still trying to work out Grissom's reaction when he asked Warrick if he ever thought of taking a shortcut and when Warrick asked him the same, Grissom just looked at him & walked away to the shooting range.

    The Guy is an excellent shot!

  • Who killed a serial killer?

    That is the question the CSIs must ask themselves in this episode. After finally getting a warrant for the suspects, they enter the house only to find them dead. Two undercover officers were watching the house and suspicion falls on them but they say that they were called to a officer down. They are cleared and as they collect evidence, they begin to suspect another cop. Why because they found his jacket and badge in a drain. It is never a walk in the park for the CSIs so of course it can't be that simple.

    We also see Sara and Catherine investigate the death of a college kid, who was a die hard sports fan, in his bath.

    It was a good episode and was the better part of the two episodes.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • We find out that Sam Braun's case was dismissed because of how Catherine found out he is her father.

    • At the end of the episode, Grissom goes to the firing range to to vent some anger. When he pulls back the target, we see that he is a very accurate shooter.

    • Grissom says the title of the episode, All for our country.

      Grissom (looking down at the seal): All for our country.
      Brass: That's what he probably told himself.

    • Goof: In the separate case, when Sara is making a template of the grease paint on the inside of the vic's shirt, she doesn't completely outline the number "7". Catherine comes in and Sara asks her what she thinks it is. When the camera goes back to the shirt, the whole 7 is outlined though the cap was on the marker from the point that Catherine came in the room.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Greg: So I ran the blood you found on the gun through CODIS... on my own time... of which I have precious little...
      Grisssom: Greg, why do you always trail off like that?
      Greg: Because you make me nervous.

    • Fromansky: Someday, you're going to need me or my buddies at a scene... and wouldn't you know it, we all hit traffic on the way.
      Grissom: Is that how you do your job, officer?
      Fromansky: Have a safe night.

    • Grissom: Linens and towels from The Sphere on top of the washing machine, and what I believe to be sheets from the motel inside the dryer. Both positive presumptive for blood.
      Nick: Think they were being smart taking the sheets, or did they just get off sleeping on 'em?
      Warrick: Either way, they were sick and dangerous.
      Grissom: What does that say about whoever killed them?

    • (Grissom watches two guys across the street)
      Grissom: Are those your guys?
      Brass: Yeah, they're UC.
      Grissom: How long they been sitting on the house?
      Brass: Oh, about the time that Judge Slater didn't sign the first warrant.
      Grissom: Two undercover guys outside. Two dead bodies inside.
      Brass: Makes you feel a little paranoid, huh?
      Grissom: Not paranoid enough.

    • Sara: What tipped you to the ring?
      Catherine: Jaws.
      Sara: Peter Benchley's Jaws?
      Catherine: No, it was in Steven Spielberg's Jaws. They had this mechanical shark named Bruce. And he kept swimming round and round in circles.
      Sara: How come?
      Catherine: His dorsal fin was bent.
      Sara: How did Bruce's fin get bent?
      Catherine: Same way the kid's ring did. It hit something.

    • (Grissom suspects a cop killed the Klinefelds)
      Brass: Cops don't take the law into their own hands.
      Grissom: Ha! In what city?
      Brass: Oh, you wanna hit below the belt? You know a lot of people had access to the Klinefelds. Who knows maybe CSI 3, Nicky Stokes opened his mouth to another parking lot attendant.
      Grissom: There was an eyewitness who saw a uniform at the front door.
      Brass: Oh, come on! 10 year old insomniac kid hyped up on sugar, goin' blind playin' Xbox. Who knows what he saw?
      Grissom: So now you're gonna discredit your own witness?
      Brass: Alright, let's break it down: You got a public defender's cell phone, no prints. Officer's guns taken from the scene, not fired. You got officer's shoe prints not matching the evidence print. You got three black and whites confirming that Commons and Nowlin reponded to a 444. C'mon on give these guys a break.
      Grissom: Just because they weren't the shooters doesn't mean they weren't involved!
      Brass: Oh, now it's a conspiracy?
      Grissom: Oh, please. 444 call two blocks away.
      Brass (talking over him): Oh c'mon, Gil! You know better than that. There's bogus calls that come in everyday. Or maybe you don't because you're the kinda guy who goes to serve a warrant without a gun!
      Grissom: I'm not a cop.
      Brass: Well, that's a distinction that could be lost if the suspects were still inside the house. Look, I had your back. Now I expect you to have mine.
      Grissom: It's not the way it works.
      Brass: In what city?

    • The Kid: You've got to be kidding me.
      Sara: You threw a punch, probably a sucker punch.
      The Kid: Look I told you guys that guy walked away.
      Catherine: But he was already dying. And you're responsible.
      Sara: Now who's the punk... bitch?

    • (Arriving at a crime scene)
      Sara: I cannot believe Grissom pulled us off that serial murder case.
      Catherine: Yeah, well, lemme tell ya how it ends. They die. (they both head towards the house) Whoa, this isn't half bad for college kids.
      Sara: Yeah. Why live in a one-room flea bag when you can pool your resources and live like this.
      Catherine: Hey, how 'bout it: You, me, Warrick, Nick, Grissom...
      Sara (shakes her head): Oh, eeh... not Grissom. (walking into the house and water is pouring down from the ceiling)
      Catherine: What the hell is this?
      Officer: Uh... ma'am you might wanna take one of these. (gives Sara an umbrella)
      Sara: Thank you.
      Catherine: Thanks. Where's the body?
      Officer: It's upstairs.
      Sara: Upstairs?
      Officer: Yeah.
      Catherine: It's raining man juice?
      Sara: Hallelujah? (Officer gives them boots to wear, they walk upstairs) Well, weather's clearing.
      Catherine: Yeah, if only the smell would.
      Sara: Yep.
      Catherine: It's like a sewer in here. (they walk into the bathroom and see the body in the tub)
      Sara: Oh, my goodness.
      Catherine: Oh, god!
      Detective O'Riley: Soup's on.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Episode Title All for Our Country

      The phrase "All for Our Country" is written on the Nevada State Seal. An impression of part of the seal is the key piece of evidence that leads CSI to the killer.

    • Catherine: No, it was in Steven Spielberg's Jaws. They had this mechanical shark named Bruce. And he kept swimming round and round in circles.

      The 1975 film Jaws (directed by Steven Spielberg) is about a giant great white shark arrives on the shores of a New England beach resort and wreaks havoc with bloody attacks on swimmers until a part-time sheriff teams up with a marine biologist and an old seafarer to hunt the monster down.

    • Catherine: It's raining man juice.
      Sara: Hallelujah.

      The part of chorus goes, "It's raining men! Hallelujah!" The chorus is from "It's Raining Men", by The Pointer Sisters. It's also sung by two women called The Weather Girls and later by Geri Halliwell in a modern version.

    • Witness: He was a regular Bluto.

      Bluto was the partying character played by John Belushi in the 1978 film Animal House.
