Patricia Alwick: Dr. Grissom. May I have a word with you?
Grissom: Yes, of course. Come in.
Patricia Alwick: I wonder why you hold what I do in such obvious contempt?
Grissom: Excuse me?
Patricia Alwick: The last time we spoke, you mentioned that you were having problems with Hank. Now, out of concern for you and because I take my job very seriously, I started asking around, and was met by a mixture of bafflement and smirks by most of your staff... Until David Hodges took pity on me and informed me that Hank was your dog.
Grissom: I apologize. It was a serious question.
Patricia Alwick: Oh, really?
Grissom: For the last few weeks my dog's been listless, barely eats, and I just wondered that if you thought it was possible that pets could take on the emotion of their owners?
Patricia Alwick: Well, companion animals were bred to respond to human beings. At some level, I do believe that they resonate with what their owners are feeling. So, what are you feeling?
Grissom: I've just been a little distracted lately. Uh... having a hard time focusing on the details.
Patricia Alwick: That's normal.
Grissom: Not for me. ... I wondered if you knew, typically how long this lasts?
Patricia Alwick: There's no typical. Days, weeks, sometimes even years, the important thing is to acknowledge it, but you do have to talk about it, and if not with me, with someone else and soon.
