Dr. Gil Grissom
IA Officer Wagenbach
The note Jim Brass holds up to the undertaker reads "You are under arrest"
Goof: The newspaper article's headline at Warrick's house refers to a slain stripper, but the article's body is about a political story.
Greg Sanders has finished writing his book on the Las Vegas mob and is shopping it around to publishers. He began writing the book after meeting Faye Dunaway's character in the Season 6 episode "Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye."
Undersheriff McKeen: I just wanted to congratulate you in person. Sure made a believer outta me.
Undersheriff McKeen: Look, I don't wanna fire you. I just need to know that you're through running the streets on your own lookin' for bad guys.
Warrick: Look, I'm done being a rogue in the streets. But there's one son of a bitch still out there and I promise you that we're gonna get him.
Undersheriff McKeen: Grissom taught you well.
Warrick: I'd like to think so.
Undersheriff McKeen: You never give up.
Undersheriff McKeen: That's what makes you a great CSI. (takes out his gun and shoots him)
Nick: Let's get a beer.
Warrick: Oh, no.
Nick: Come on. You're a free man now.
Warrick: Well, this free man needs a free shower. And I think you need to take a hot one with that red-head.
Nick: I think I might just do that. (pauses) Hey, I'm really glad that you're okay.
Catherine: You ever need anybody to talk to, you know how to get ahold of me, huh?
Warrick: Yeah, thanks. (she kisses his cheek and walks out of the diner)
(The whole team is out for breakfast, laughing having a good time)
Nick: Ah, turkey bacon is not gonna make the food any better here.
Grissom: Yeah, well, unfortunately we don't come here for the food.
Warrick: Well, as far as I'm concerned there's no place that I'd rather be.
Warrick: Thanks, Jim.
Brass: Don't ever forget how lucky you are.
Grissom: The D.A's gonna drop the charges. (Warrick sighs in relief) But there's still the question of administrative violation. So, Ecklie and I are recommending to the Undersheriff that you be suspended and demoted, but not terminated.
Warrick: So I still have a job?
Grissom: Well, the Undersheriff says that he has to think about it. But he just wants to make you sweat.
Warrick: I've sweat enough.
Grissom: I'd imagine. (Warrick hugs Grissom and holds on to him for a moment)
Warrick: Thank you. Thank you.
Warrick: Listen, Grissom, I'm so sorry about all of this. (sighs) And... yeah.
Grissom: You were framed.
Warrick: Framed? (Grissom nods and Warrick breathes a sigh of relief) By who?
Grissom: Gedda has a mole in the department.
Warrick: A cop?
Grissom: Daniel Pritchard. We think that he had him kill Lenny Harper. And probably Joanna as well.
Warrick: And why would he kill Gedda?
Grissom: Who knows? Old mobsters, crooked cops, it's a long history.
Warrick: I don't know. I mean, come on, Grissom, Gedda's been killin' and barbaquin' people for 25 years. It would take more than a beat cop to get one over on that fat bastard. It's gotta be someone higher up than that.
Grissom: Probably, but Pritchard's all we got for now.
Undersheriff McKeen: So, it's all on Pritchard. Is this gonna hold up in court?
Grissom: It will.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: You know what the defense is gonna say, right? Who better than a CSI to make a murder look like a frame.
Grissom: He was framed, and I'll prove it.
Undersheriff McKeen: Do your client and this department a favor, and make a deal. The District Attorney said that he might consider manslaughter.
Warrick: I can't do that.
Undersheriff McKeen: Are you telling me that you're innocent? Because I.A. said that those words never crossed your lips.
Warrick: Are you charging me?
Undersheriff McKeen: Not yet. But in about five hours it's gonna be first degree murder.
Grissom: Brass always suspected that there was a mole in the department that worked for Gedda. I bet we're lookin' for a cop.
Catherine: A P.I. investigating Gedda gets killed, then Gedda gets killed. Maybe this dirty cop did 'em both.
Grissom: Yeah, but we can't prove it because we're not allowed to investigate Gedda's murder.
Catherine: We're still investigating the P.I. if the cases are linked, we solve one, we solve the other.
Grissom: Okay, if there were any other suspect, what would be our conclusion? (everyone is silent for a long moment)
Greg: That he did it.
Grissom: Which is what Warrick told Internal Affairs.
Catherine: He confessed?
Grissom: No, but he didn't deny it. He says that he can't remember.
Greg: Yeah, we've all heard that one before.
Nick: What's that supposed to mean?
Greg: It's not supposed to mean anything, we're just talking.
Nick: Well, we can't just sit here and watch him go down.
Catherine: We're not going to. He asked for a lawyer, and we're going to get him a shark.
Greg: The only thing that a jury is gonna see is a rogue cop with a vendetta. I've been there before. They're gonna crucify him.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: You get Holly killed, you get Joanna killed, and you just can't take anymore so you kill Gedda. That's how jury's gonna see it.
Warrick: There's nothin' that I can do about that.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: Sure there is. Look, Lou Gedda was a slime ball, that's common knowledge. Nobody is gonna miss him. In fact the world is arguably a better place without him.
Warrick: So, if I admit to killing him they'll take it easy on me and you're just tryin' to help me out, right? You know how many times I used that on a suspect? Don't waste your game, pal.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: Let's backup a little. You get involved with a pretty young thing, you go away to do your business, she winds up dead. You ever think about that?
Warrick: I think about Joanna every day. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about her.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: No, no. I'm sorry. I was talking about Holly Gribbs. You remember Holly, don't 'ya? Rookie CSI, you left alone at a crime scene eight years ago to go place bets for a crooked judge. Suspect came back and shot her.
Warrick: I remember.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: Poor innocent girl, just tryin' to do her job. And winds up dead because of you.
Warrick: That has nothing to do with this.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: Do two points make a straight line? It's a pattern of behavior. Reckless, obsessive, compulsive, self-destructive behavior.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: (laying out photos in front of Warrick) Your gun with blood tissue and hair at the scene. Your cuffs, on the vic. You covered in blood. You went to Pigalle to get revenge by giving Lou Gedda a taste of his own medicine. You're a CSI, what's the evidence telling you?
Warrick: (pauses) The evidence is ... is suggesting that I did it.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: Do you remember hiring Lenny Harper to investigate Lou Gedda in violation of direct orders.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: You think Gedda was responsible?
Warrick: I'd bet on it.
I.A. Officer Wagenbach: I heard that about you. Is that why you went to Pigalle?
Warrick: I went to Pigalle because Lou Gedda called me.
Catherine: How 'ya holdin' up?
Warrick: That depends. Do you think I did it?
Catherine: I can't discuss the case.
Warrick: Yeah. I dunno, I think I'd just feel a lot better if I had a change of clothes. I hate being dressed like a convict.
Catherine: I'll take care of it. (takes his hand) Stay strong.
Nick (after Hodges was talking to I.A): I don't care, what'd you say?
Hodges: I said that I saw Warrick sitting alone in Grissom's office in the dark.
Nick: So what?
Hodges: He got a phone call and he got really pissed at the person that he was talking to.
Nick: So what?
Hodges: Then he was found an hour later in a pool of Gedda's blood.
Nick: Hey, you don't know what happened in there.
Hodges: Look, Nick all I did was tell the truth as I saw it. That's what we're supposed to do, right?
Ecklie: Get a lawyer.
Warrick: I don't want one.
Ecklie: This isn't going away, Warrick. In 48 hours they're gonna charge you.
Warrick: I wouldn't know what to tell a lawyer anyway.
(Catherine and Nick see Warrick in the back of the cop car)
Catherine: The 419 went out as officer involved, no details.
Nick: Yeah, we got here as quick as we could.
Catherine: What the hell happened?
Grissom: Gedda's dead.
Undersheriff McKeen (after taking a long look at Warrick): Put your kits away. Day shift will be processing the scene. I.A's taking the case from here.
Grissom (answering his phone): Where the hell have you been?
Warrick: Grissom, I gotta talk with you.
Grissom: Where are you?!
Grissom: What are you thinking?
Warrick: I don't know. I don't know!
Grissom: You don't-- You don't know what?
Warrick: I don't know what I did here. I don't know what happened.
Nick: Warrick couldn't investigate Gedda himself, so he had the P.I do it for him. Archie tracked down thousands of photos, sound bite files, videos, everything's connected to Lou Gedda. I think Gedda caught Harper spying on him, killed him and had the mortician put the body in the double-decker casket.
Grissom (dials Warrick's phone, it goes straight to voicemail): Warrick, call me. Now! (hangs up and turns to Nick) Anybody hears from him I wanna know.
Grissom: What if the killer used the victim's car to transport the body?
Nick: He drives the victim's own car back to the funeral home, stuffs the body in a double-decker coffin, hits a car wash, comes back cleans the office, then leaves us the keys. That's pretty considerate.
Grissom: Or very smart.
Catherine: What is this? More research for your mob book? I hope you're not starting to admire those thugs.
Greg: I don't admire them, but I'm grateful.
Catherine: For what?
Greg: Well, for starters, my book is done. I have meetings with three different publishers out in L.A. and I fly out the day after tomorrow.
Nick: We'll pay for a new casket.
Grissom: We will?
Grissom: What happened?
Warrick: I don't know. My head is throbbing.
Grissom: Is that your gun?
Grissom: Are those your cuffs?
Warrick: I guess so.
Grissom: We need to get you a lawyer.
Brass: Don't say another word.
Brass: Just get on your feet.
Warrick: I don't know what happened.
Brass: Hey, it's for your own good. Just keep your mouth shut until we get to the station. ... You couldn't just let it go.
Nick: That has got to be the biggest casket I've ever seen.
Nick: Crime scene at a funeral! Can't get much deader than this.
