Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Good episode with an original plotline. Exactly why I watch this series.

    I loved the case with the biting. The ending was really unexpected. I could have swarn that it was either the husband, or "Buffy227." When it turned out to the be the little girl, I was really shocked. She just seemed so innocent.

    The dynamics between characters were good, and Grissom spitting the ketchup out was hilarious. The look on Catherine's face was priceless. Very nicely done, CSI!

    Plus that cute GSR moment! "You know, you don't have to sleep in the same bed to have sex. Or....romance..." Very nice.

    This episode was great the first time, but even better on rereuns!moreless
  • Pity the plot was so heavily based on the Micheal Peterson Case - if you are going to watch that story you are far better off with \"Death on a Staircase\"moreless

    As soon as it was revealed that the previous wife had died in the same manner, I began to feel a touch squeemish. the bluring of the lines between reality and fiction, then the casting of the final blame on someone who in the real case was entirely innocent seemed at best in poor taste. I\'d suggest instead you watch Jean-Xavier de Lestrade\'s Death on the staircase documentary.
  • Cat: What are you thinking? Gil: Led Zepplin.... both glance at the dead woman on the stairs... Gil: Stairway to Heaven

    Cat: What are you thinking?

    Gil: Led Zepplin....

    both glance at the dead woman on the stairs...

    Gil: Stairway to Heaven

  • A woman lies died on a set of stairs, the husband seems upset but he has a few secrets for the team to chew on.

    trust me i really liked this episode and i love this show... but they should start changing the name of the show to s.c.i. Sex Crime Investigation. Whats next? someones get stabbed from behind during a massive orgy? ( get it? lol)Anyways C.S.I people: steer clear from the fetish sites and show me i am wrong!
  • Great episode, nice twists... but what is UP with all the slow-mo's?

    It's the first show this season that made me feel like I was watching CSI again, the mystery, the quips and the twists... the twists are the most important plot element in CSI.

    Also, call me weird, but I am always intrigued by episodes in which childeren aren't playing their cute little roles. Like the episode with the two sisters and their cat-loving neighbour. Or the one in which the alleged sexual assault victim actually orchestrated the whole thing.

    I still want story arcs, but maybe that's not everyone's cup of tea. However, one thing I wouldn't miss are the damn MTV/Matrix non functional slow-mo's, like the last scene with Kathryn... please, enough with the flashy stuff already!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (27)

    • David: Twice as many people die from falling down stairs as from accidental gunfire.
      Brass: You didn't just get back from one of those coroners' conferences, did you?

    • Dr. Geri Cohen (opening her blouse and still staring sultrily at Nick): See? No bite marks. I'm the agressor, Ray just lies there and takes it. He's a real sweetheart! (Nick clears his throat)

    • (to Nick as they watch the blond on the video bite Ray)
      Archie: Ow... ooh. She's hot. But I still wouldn't let her fang me.
      Nick (not seeming completely unconvinced): No, no, I'm... I'm with you.

    • Nick: Quick. How many teeth in the human mouth?
      Catherine: Without wisdoms? 28.
      Nick: Yep, and the 28 teeth in Becky's mouth do not match the bite impressions on her husband's body.
      Catherine: I guess Ray found himself another set of pearly whites.

    • David: It's like the Red Sea in here.
      Grissom: The Red Sea's not red, David.
      David: No, it's blue from afar and transparent when held in hand, like any other body of water. I was just speaking figuratively.

    • Ecklie: Do you think he's guilty?
      Grissom: I don't think that yet.

    • Doc Robbins: If my full autopsy confirms murder you may be looking at the first serial stairway killer.

    • Dr. Cohen: Teeth are sexual organs.

    • (During an interrogation)
      Catherine: I'm still confused about the bite marks.
      Mr. Lester: I found myself a way to make our relationship work.
      Catherine: You found yourself a vampire.

    • Brass: Now look I just came from the DA and I gotta tell ya, he's already made up his mind. Husband and wife home alone, all that blood, shaky alibi, plus he says he just looks guilty.
      Grissom: How does one look guilty?
      Brass: You know, I'm just the messenger, what do you think the chances are that he didn't do it?
      Catherine: Well, what do you think the chances are that we're going to give you an answer before all the evidence is in?

    • Brass: Mr. Stein does your son-in-law have a temper?
      Grandpa Stein: Do I have to answer that?
      Brass: You just did.

    • (Collecting the paramedics boots)
      Greg: Whew! You ever hear of odor eaters?

    • Catherine: Tequila will always remind me of Señor Frog's.
      Brass: Which one?
      Catherine: Cancun. My honeymoon, my dime.
      Brass: If you ever wanna go back it's on me.
      Catherine: Is that a proposal?

    • Brass: He said he checked to see if she was still alive and held her 'til the paramedics came.
      Catherine: Wouldn't you?
      Brass: You never met my ex.

    • Grissom: That's odd. A man and a woman who don't share a bedroom arrange to have a night alone, send their daughter to a relative, go out to dinner, have drinks by the pool but they sleep in seperate bedrooms.
      Sara: Maybe one of them snored or had insomnia or liked to work at night.
      Grissom: Maybe they were suffocating each other and he couldn't breathe. (Sara opens a drawer and finds a bottle of lubricant)
      Sara: Sexual lubricant. It's half empty, sticky. You know you don't have to sleep in the same bed together to have sex (Grissom makes a face) or...have romance.
      Grissom: I'm gonna go see the Doctor.

    • Henry: I guess you're kind of a role model for me.
      Greg: A role model, huh?
      Henry: Yeah. By the way, where do you get your hair cut?

    • Catherine: Sometimes first blush gives you head rush.

    • Mr. Lester: Rosy Palm and Thumbelina are the only action I get. (holds up his right hand)

    • Nick: Those don't look like mosquito bites...
      Mr. Lester: My wife likes to bite me and I don't mind it, okay?

    • Brass (to husband of dead woman, when he's asked to remove his clothing, as they're evidence): I'll close my eyes if you're shy.

    • Catherine: Lovers and co-workers, that never works.

    • Dr. Robbins: At least after five years they don't smell anymore.
      David: Always with the silver lining.

    • Nick: Are you kidding me?
      Archie: I could not make this stuff up.

    • (Grissom is spraying ketchup out of his mouth)
      Catherine: You want fries with that?

    • Grissom: Well, you've given me a lot of information doc and none of it very helpful.

    • Catherine: What are you thinking?
      Grissom: Led Zeppelin... (everyone looks at a dead woman lying on a set of stairs) ...Stairway to Heaven.

    • Doc Robbins: There's a fine line between pleasure and pain. But who doesn't like to cross it every now and then? (Grissom gives him a weird look) Anyway...
