  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Captain Brass is shot you can see the squib light appear on his right side just before the "bullet hole" in his shirt.

      A squib is a small explosive device, which when detonated ,will simulate the effect of a bullet/puncture wound or small explosion

    • Brass: Single boy's the only smart one.

      This statement seems to be directed to Grissom, the only person in the room who hasn't (or isn't going to be, in David's case) married. This statement is a little ironic, since at the time of this episode Grissom isn't single. (The Grissom/Sara relationship isn't new as of the next episode, which is a continuation of this one.)

    • Grissom tells Doc. Robbins that he was nearly married to his second grade classmate Nicole Daley..

    • Doc Robbins' wife is named Judy. Robert David Hall's (plays Doc Robbins) real-life wife's first name is Judy.

    • Brass: Single boy's the only smart one.

    • (On the phone)
      Tina: Hey, baby.
      Warrick: What's up?
      Tina: Nothin' much.
      Warrick: Where you at?
      Tina: I'm at the Venetian getting a manicure. I hope you're in for a good back scratching session tonight.
      Warrick: Who you talkin' 'bout?
      Tina: What?
      Warrick: Me or the guy standing next to you? See that little dome above your head? Give it a wave. I'm in the surveillance room watching you lie to me.
      Tina: Warrick.
      Warrick: Hey, maybe I'm gonna have to call that show Cheaters.
      Tina: Do you even know what you're talkin' about?
      Warrick: Don't even bother comin' home tonight. I'll just text you the number of what storage bin your stuff will be in.
      Tina: Do you wanna know what's up, huh? What's really up?
      Warrick: I can see what's up.
      Tina: You can't see a damn thing. He's a VIP host helping me plan your birthday party. I hope you enjoy spending it alone. (hangs up and glares at the surveillance camera)

    • (Interrogating Sally, the prostitute)
      Sally: I'd let you take me to Hawaii.
      Nick (smiles): Nah, I'm workin'.
      Sally: So am I.

    • Sara: And grass, not the kind you smoke on the floor in the closet. But all the shoes in the closet were clean.
      Warrick: So someone was walking around in here with grass on their shoes? (Sara nods in agreement) Maybe it was the missing husband... or a desperate gardener.
      Sara: Who was mowing more than the lawn.

    • Doc Robbins: Gil... have you ever been even close to getting married?
      Grissom: Once... when I was younger. Her name was Nicole Daley. I asked her to marry me. We were classmates. She liked bugs too. I gave her my grandmother's ring, but my mother made me get it back. (Doc Robbins nods) Second grade.

    • Wendy (about the fridge in Grissom's office): You got anything else in there? Bottle of tequila? Severed human head?
      Grissom: I don't keep tequila.

    • Nick (to Warrick): So I hear your marriage is on the rocks and you're shoppin' for hookers. (Warrick laughs)
      Warrick: No, but I think I found what Mr. Cutler likes. (holds up flyer) Thumb print on the front, four finger prints on the back.
      Nick (reading flyer): "Sally, sweet apple pie." Hmm. Do you really think it's a good idea to sleep with a woman who advertises in a flyer?
      Warrick: Well, I don't really think there's any sleeping involved. Don't be shy, give her a call. (they smile)
      Nick: Alright. For your enjoyment. (Nick dials the number and clears his throat and Warrick gives him a look)
      Sally (over the phone): Hi, this is Sally, who is this?
      Nick: Hi, this is Dirk Diggler. (Warrick laughs) I'm lookin' for a date.
      Sally: What kinda date?
      Nick: I'm taking a trip around the world, you wanna go? (Warrick makes a face)
      Sally: Sure. Can you afford the airfare, darlin'?
      Nick: Is 2 G's enough? (Warrick makes a face again)
      Sally: Where you at?
      Nick (smiles at Warrick): 3057 Westfall. (Warrick points "here" and Nick waves him off) It's right off of Charleston. It's a single level building. All the way in the back.
      Sally: What do you look like?
      Nick: Umm... I've got a little Tom Cruise thing goin'. (Warrick tries to hold his laughter)

    • Warrick: What are you thinkin'?
      Grissom: That you married people take things too personally.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Brass: Well, if Sammy was trying to get even, why did Willie keep quiet about it?
      Grissom: He's his brother's keeper.

      This is an allusion to the story of Cain and Abel in the Bible (Genesis 4), when Cain is confronted by God about the death of Abel states "Am I my brother's keeper?"

    • How the murderer took a cab to the places he murdered people is a reference to the villain in the 2004 film Collateral he took a cab, ran the meter all night, and paid the driver while he murdered people.

    • Nick uses the name Dirk Diggler when he's on the phone with a hooker. Dirk Diggler was the name of the main character, played by Mark Walhberg, in the movie Boogie Nights.

    • Warrick and Sara make a referance to Desperate Housewives during this episode. Sara states it could have been the missing husband and Warrick replies with or the desperate gardener.

      This refers to Gabby on Desperate Housewives since she had sex with her gardener multiple times when her husband was away.
      Incidently, Curris Graham (the hostage-taker/wife-murderer) has a recuring role in Desperate Housewives from Lynette's office.
