    This episode was something new and it worked very well It was Henry's birthday and he is kidnapped and is relieved to find its Nick, Greg and Hodges who have decided to take him out to a BBQ restaurant but things go wrong from there when they are taken off the road by a crazy driver When they arrive at the restaurant it is closed and they find a dead body with a raccoon on his face This was a good episode for Henry because you don't see much of him in other episodes because he is a lab rat and in this episode you learn about his character a lot more While the CSI's are stuck in the BBQ with the a crazy man and a woman who ran them off the road Dr Jekyll had returned and has escalated because he has now worked on a live person putting a second appendix into him which killed him in interrogation after he was the suspect for the murder of a woman in his bathroom In the end the four CSI's was able to get out of the BBQ and will be a night to remember for them Ray managed to find what Dr Jekyll had taken as a souvenir and Doc Robbins found a message in the victims appendix that said Michaelangelo With funny moments in the episode and the return of Dr Jekyll the episode was perfect.moreless
  • Stokes, Hodges and Saunders take Henry to a remote biker bar for his birthday. The adventure turns out to be anything but "excellent." Elsewhere, Langston and Willows look into the drowning death of a young woman at a wealthy businessman's home.moreless

    Well, one thing you can say is this episode did a good job at keeping you hooked until the end. The storyline featuring the not-so-happy birthday was the highlight of this episode mainly because it was clever and avoided being predicatble. The characters at the closed down rib joint were a little too odd for my tastes but I like how the story was done and it definitely was not formulaic. The investigation into the young woman's murder was good also, but the character of the businessman was just a little too irritating for me. Still, this episode certainly works.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, when Brass and Langston find a man in front of a TV, Brass mentions that the guy is crazy about true crime tv-series. On the screen, a list of fictive series is shown. However on the right side of the screen are a list of episode titles. Blood Drops refer to CSI se01ep07. I-15 Killers refer to I-15 Murders se01ep11. Stalker to Killer could refer to the episode where Nick is being stalked and the title Murder of the Co-ed, is almost the same phrase as in the IMDB description of Good Bye and Good Luck, se08ep09.

    • A glaring mistake was made in regard to the explosion that killed the cook and propelled him through the window. The cause was explained as ethylene gas having built up at the bottom of the tank and then being set off by a gunshot. In actual fact, ethylene gas is lighter than air (density of 0.97 compared to air with a density of 1.0), indeed the only anesthetic gas that is lighter than air, and therefore it would NOT build up at the bottom of the tank. In fact, it would rise to the top of the tank and build up there if the tank is closed on top. That property, added to the fact that ethylene is so highly explosive over a wide range of mixtures in both air and oxygen and also the fact that its onion like odor is reasonably objectionable led to its discontinuation as a viable anesthetic agent as soon as cyclopropane became available.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Catherine (to Ray): Well, this is what's been buggin' me, with Joey Bigelow, Jekyll took the man's bowtie, and then left him another bowtie, so to speak, inside his body. And with Bernie, Jekyll gave him another appendix. I'm just wonderin' what did he take? (walks off, Ray ponders this)

    • Shirley: You think I don't know what you see when you look at us? (takes a sip of her martini) Bunch of ignorant drunk crackers. Shiftless peckerwoods. Lemme tell you somethin', we built this outta nothin' with our hands, or sweat and or determination. Mayor of Vegas used to eat here.
      Greg: (whispers to Hodges) Alright, if I can't find a phone, I'm gonna make one. Keep an eye on her. (walks off)
      Shirley: We had politicians, celebrities, rubbin' up elbows with the common man. Some nights, we had eight, ten limos stacked out up front. Then Harry took off, it all went to hell. He didn't care who he hurt. (making another martini) Are you sure, that I can't fix you boys one of these?
      Hodges: Uh... I could use the little boy's room.
      Shirley: Ah, toilet is all stuffed up. There's one in the basement. But, you don't wanna use that one, believe me. There's like, a million black widow spiders down there. It's like a black widow convention is what it is. You just like puff and die. Use the bushes. (Hodges goes to leave)
      Henry: (grabs his arm and whispers) Whoa, whoa, what am I supposed to do?
      Hodges: You heard Greg, keep an eye on her.
      Shirley: (pours Henry some whiskey) You are gonna drink a man drink, just like that. (Henry chuckles nervously)

    • Henry: Maybe the racoon lept through that window ninja style, and before this guy could shoot it, it landed on him and chewed his face off. Well, I guess we should call it in, huh? Oh, that's right we have no reception!

    • Nick: I think we got a dead body here, boys.
      Henry (unenthused): Best birthday, ever.

    • Nick (reading the Closed Notice at Harry's): "Notice: closed by the board of health. Suspected point origin of hepatitis B outbreak. Date of closure 7/3/09." Oops.
      Hodges: That was five months ago.
      Henry: Nice, you were gonna give me hepatitis for my birthday.

    • Shirley: This place was a gold mine. That man, he walked away with 250,000 dollars. All I got... (hands Henry a postcard that reads 'Florida' on the front) was a postcard. Just to rub my face in it.
      Henry (reading the postcard): "Shirley, by the time you read this, I'll be sippin' pina coladas, on an island somewheres far away with the new love of my life who is much younger than you. Don't come lookin' for me 'cause I'm all gone. Good-bye, Harry.
      Shirley: Have you ever heard somethin' so mean in all your life? (sniffles)
      Henry: No, ma'am.
      Shirley: You're real cute, you know that? ... Now, What'd you say y'all come out here for again?
      Henry: It's my birthday!
      (Shirley squees happily and climbs on Henry's lap)
      Shirley: Why don't you come over here and give your Auntie Shirley some sugar?
      Henry: (laughs uncomfortably and starts to lean away) Uh, no, I can't, I'm engaged. I'm married, actually. I have syphilis!
      Shirley: Perfect. Me too.
      Henry: (muffled) Help!
