  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Ray discovers the razor the razor head is on but when he shows it to the rest of the team the razor head is off.

    • Goof: In the scene where the dead woman, handcuffed to her bed, appears for the first time, you can see that she blinks when the camera first focuses on her eyes. It happens the fraction of a second before the camera pulls away from her.

  • Quotes

    • (Riley and Nick are eating fast food)
      Langston: After all that we've been through how can you two still eat that?
      Riley: Power of suggestion.
      Nick: Because I just can't help myself, they're good.
      Riley: It's because they put crack in the fries.

    • Catherine (Greg is squeezing toothpaste into a cup): What are you doin'?
      Greg: I needed to see for myself the volume of 340 grams of toothpaste. You know, unencumbered by a tube, it is an awful lot. You wanna join in? I used to do this as a kid.
      Catherine: Yeah but now we get paid for doin' it.
      Greg: You know, even with an antiemetic how could you force this much toothpaste down someone's throat?
      Hodges (walks in): Excuse me for interrupting arts and crafts.
      Greg: Uh, it's an experiment.
      Hodges: Well, maybe for you. The toothpaste that Mrs. Tucker ingested contained a bleaching agent, the tubes you collected didn't. (walks out)
      Greg: There were two empty bottles of toothpaste in their room, but it's not the toothpaste that killed her.
      Catherine: Arts and crafts are over, we've gotta go back to the house.

    • Catherine: Is it possible to OD on toothpaste?
      Henry: Definitely if it's fluoride toothpaste. Each tube comes with a warning. 'If swallowed please contact the poison control center immediately.' Never had a cavity. (smiles)
      Catherine: No joke, how much fluoride would it take to kill a person?
      Henry: Depends on the person.
      Catherine: Female, 110 pounds, with a pre-existing stomach ulcer.
      Henry: Which means it would get into her system faster. (he rattles off math stuff, and then comes up with the answer) So, she would need 250mg for it to be toxic, and if there's 450mgs in one tube...
      Catherine: So one tube would do it?
      Henry: Assuming that she absorbed it all and didn't throw it up.
      Catherine: Well, then for sure, two tubes would get the job done.
      Henry: She would experience what I would like to call a catastrophic symptom train. Wicked muscle spasms, would give way to decreased heart rate, lowered blood pressure, decreased respiration and eventually death.
      Catherine: Death by... toothpaste.

    • Brass: You know, I missed the whole hippy thing. I was too busy in Southeast Asia keeping my head down and my feet tied.
      Langston: I'm suprised that you didn't drop a little acid or smoke a little tea.
      Brass: Well, things did get a little wild.

    • Riley: Pants off in the manager's office, during that time of the month...
      Wendy: Assault?
      Riley: No blood smears, no semen, no torn clothing, it didn't look like a rape scene. Maybe it was consensual.
      Wendy (makes a face): With Bob?
      Riley: Or Gary.
      Wendy: Or both.
      Riley: Love triangles can be deadly.
      Wendy: Don't I know it.

    • Mandy: But can't say for sure it's her's, so I need to see Elizabeth. Or, um, one of her fingers.
      Nick (laughs): You're sick, Mandy.

    • Catherine (about the vic's stomach contents, which are blue): Death by Smurf? Have you ever seen anything like this?
      Doc Robbins: No. (sniffs it) Minty.
      Langston: Fresh.

    • Catherine: Home from a run, more than halfway through an afternoon cocktail, they haven't been getting along, he's drunk and he won't take 'no' for an answer.
      Greg: Romantic.

    • David: Her liver temp is 93 degrees, which means she's been dead 3 to 5 hours.
      Vartaan: You wanna bet that's when the husband started drinking?

    • Catherine: Looks like some kind of struggle.
      David: It wasn't a fair fight. She was handcuffed, which under the right circumstances can be fun. (Catherine stares at him)
      Caterine: You got a COD there, Dave?
      David: Undetermined. Catherine, I apologize for the overshare.
      Catherine: Thank you for the overshare. (winks)
