  • As brutal as it gets.

    A really brutal murder of a football coach leaves the CSI's questioning because the coach was attacked in his bed and the killer thought he was dead but because it hit part of the brain it made the coach think that there was nothing up with him and he just got up like normal because he brushed his teeth walked down the stairs put the kettle on and went out to get the newspaper but at that point he had lost too much blood and fell Things got even more interesting when the other case linked in with the death of the football coach It turns out it was one of the players from the team who killed the coach because he didn't play him in one of the matches which is definitely not worth killing him over but there has been even stranger motives.moreless
  • Another ok episode

    In this episode of CSI, the following happens. We open with a college football coach waking up, covered in blood and bleeding. He goes outside where he is greeted by campus security. He then collapses and dies. Soon the murder is linked to the case which Sara and Greg are working on. Soon Sara and Greg's case is solved, but now the team have to work out who killed the coach. The murder weapon is then found, with a finger print on it. And so the killer is questioned and arrested. Overall an ok episode, although I think the story could have been told better.moreless
  • Stupid young man

    Even when the show is in its 10th season, I believe that it still has it when it comes to the stories. Its weakness may be the cast changes, the departure of two important characters and I think someone strong is missing there.

    The events of this case were surprising, although again two different cases end up becoming one. The motive of murder is sad, since this young mind having a whole future ahead commits a murder for 5 minutes under a shadow.

    Again it was nice to see Sara, a character I found weak, she always had good chemistry with Greg and they make a good team.moreless
  • A well-balanced episode. Teamwork eventually. Ray has become a normal person.

    This is the 5th episode, and I'm glad to finally see some teamwork in play. Love the scenes they interacted whether they were on the same case or not. Catherine eventually acted like a boss that had inputs to the cases. Still have problems with the funny side of Ray... his witty comments couldn't make me grin! I just wonder why the writers didn't make Ray be the boss in the first place. Grissom has weaknesses, as well as Catherine; but Ray is simply invincible. It's weird to see the trilogy preview that Ray, a CSI(2) associates with the bosses of Miami and NY lab.

    So is this the last episode that we have Sara in the show? Please hurry up and build a post-Grissom team, we have to move on...moreless
  • Connections...

    Two different cases.. one current murder.. another old case of girl drowned in a car. And the story really sets off as those cases are not connected but with one simple twist, they are. I really loved the way episode was build up and how everyone got enough screentime to have their part. I was little worried at first, at the start of this season, that we have so many labrats and other people, not CSI-s as main cast as I was not sure how much screentime could they get but it looks like it is working out quite nice.

    This case was really cleverly twisted and I liked how there were so many layers, so many potential killers who all had access to the house and it was all about figuring out the right motive, specially as they had the right guy before the end but they did not realized it. Without all the facts, you never get the whole story. And the ending was good too.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Pal: You found my Beemer? Good work, boys.
      Brass: When you reported it stolen, did you know there was a dead girl inside?
      Pal: Well, it came fully loaded, but a dead girl wasn't part of the package.

    • Hodges (after he finds the murder weapon in the garbage): Ah-ha! Touchdown!
      Wendy (sighs): Nicely done.
      Hodges: You know I'm not a CSI... by choice.
      Wendy (continues searching the garbage and finds more evidence): Hey, Hodges? (holds up a shoe with blood on it) That's probably for the best.

    • Brass: You know what this is?
      Pal; Looks like a finger print.
      Brass: Yeah, yours. Found on your .38 caliber Smith and Wesson, found in your car with a dead hooker.
      Pal: Sounds like you're accusing me of something.
      Brass: I'm not accusing you of anything. I'm charging you with vechicular manslaughter and negligent homicide.
      Pal: Well, why don't you charge me with the JFK assassination while you're at it?
      Brass: Nah, I'll let you slide on that one. But I could add in first degree murder of Coach Miller.
      Pal: Now, that's not funny.
      Brass: I lose my sense of humor when it comes to murder.

    • Ray: I need a couple of volunteers.
      Wendy: Okay, I'm in. (she looks towards Hodges who doesn't say anything. Hodges shakes his head) He would love to.
      Ray: Thanks.
      Hodges: Can I at least hear what I'm volunteering for, considering I've just been drafted.
      Ray: Campus police always circled Coach Miller's house, they would've noticed a parked car. I'm thinking the killer approached on foot.
      Wendy: And since the killer was most likely associated with the university, that means that he would've walked back to his place on campus--
      Hodges: Ditching the murder weapon and blood evidence along the way. It's all very Mission Impossible.
      Wendy: What are you talking about? It's a great theory. (to Ray) It's a great theory.
      Ray: Thank you. Can we go?
      Hodges: I'm eating.
      Ray: There's plenty of food where we're going.

    • Nick: Did you ever play football?
      Ray: Yes. You know, the real football... (makes soccer motions) ... with your feet.
      Nick: Soccer.
      Ray: Well, I never called it that. I was born in Seoul, South Korea. And my dad was career military man, I grew up in bases all around the world and we just called it football. What about you?
      Nick: I'm from Austin. I grew up playing football.

    • Pal: I don't like to get my boys in trouble.
      Brass: Oh, someone's already in trouble. It was your car, your party.
      Pal: I don't like your attitude.
      Brass: Yeah, I get that a lot.

    • Ray: Where's Archie?
      Hodges: He's at a technical conference in Sioux City, Iowa. How can I help 'ya?

    • Nick: Hey, Sara. (sees the body that has been decomp'ed by water) Eww. How's it goin'?
      Sara: I'm kinda underwater on this one.
      Nick: Yeah, it looks like it.
      Sara: Have fun on campus.

    • Julian: Captain, do you know how much the university pays campus security?
      Brass: Well, I know prison inmates make 15 cents an hour. Is it less than that?

    • Catherine: Sometimes the cover-up leaves behind more evidence.

    • Catherine: That's a lot of computing power for a football coach.
      Ray: It's a complex game, two teams, 11 players each play crafted with multiple levels of redundancy and yet most academics and intellectuals prefer baseball. I suppose it's for the poetry.
      Catherine: I just like to watch the guy's hit each other and I like their butts.

    • Doc Robbins: C'mon, you're not gonna ask me about the zombie thing?
      Nick: Well, you're obviously eager to tell me.
      Doc Robbins: Well, damage was predominantly on the right side of the brain to the neo-cortex which controls thought, language and reason. It was almost completely destroyed. But the paleo-cortex which lies beneath it remained intact. The paleo-cotrex controls learned instinct and rituals. Which explains why the victim was able to brush his teeth and eat his breakfast without noticing that he was bleeding.
      Nick: They never seem to get that right in zombie movies.

    • Doc Robbins: Coach was struck at least a dozen times.
      Nick: A lot of rage here.
      Doc Robbins: Agreed. The multiple impacts crushed his skull and drove bone fragments into his brain, causing catastrophic hemorrhaging. It's like when you push your finger into a hard-boiled egg. The shell cracks but the pieces stay in place.
      Nick: Thanks for ruining another breakfast for me.
      Doc Robbins: It's what I do.

    • Sara (to Greg as the crane is pulling a car out of the water): Did you find Nemo?
      Greg: Not unless Nemo was a Beem-O.

    • Ray: I was teaching at WLVU when Coach Miller won his second conference title. And everybody loved him, treated him like a god.
      Catherine: Even gods have enemies.
