    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: When the doc is swabbing the green paste in the wound during autopsy, there is already green on the swab as he brings it in to get the sample. While the same substance can be swabbed multiple times, the same swab would NOT be used twice. Evidence is immediately packaged after collection to prevent contamination.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Paulsen: You know, in my business, before making outrageous accusations, on or off the air, you need a little thing called evidence.
        D.B.: In our business, too.
        Sara: This is a partial print from the transformer explosions. It's also your left index finger.
        D.B.: Oops.

      • Sara: (at the victim's house) Nice digs.
        D.B.: Boy, I'll say. Guess it pays a lot better to report crimes than it does to solve them.
        Sara: Well, you could say that about any job. Except crime. I heard it doesn't pay.
