  • Trivia

    • Goof: In the scene where you see the older brother doing CPR on the baby brother Zachary, in the closeup you can definitely tell that it is a doll by the way it moves.

  • Quotes

    • Tyler Anderson: People are calling us killers. And I miss my little brother.
      Grissom: That still doesn't mean you didn't kill him.

    • (Grissom's examining the baby bed when Warrick comes from outside the window and startles him)
      Warrick: You see this spiderweb?
      Grissom (jolts upright): Damn, Warrick!
      Warrick: I'm sorry. Your ticker okay?

    • Warrick: I'm all over it like a cheap suit.

    • Grissom: Have you let anyone else touch this note? Police, a relative, anyone?
      Dad: No, just us. Why?
      Grissom: Well, because the person who touched it before you has your son, and he's just left us the first piece of the puzzle.

    • Gwen Anderson: He was choking.
      Brass: All on his own?
      Brad Lewis: Change your tone or I'll end this right now.
      Brass: Well, it's a legitimate question. But I have to work on my tone. You're right. (clears his throat) I'll try again. All on his own?

    • Catherine: A guy cheats, but the wife commits murder. How come moms always end up the bad guy with you Freud types?

    • Brass: Geez. Haven't these people ever heard of divorce?

    • Sara: You told me a few weeks ago that nothing is personal. No victim should be special. Everyone follows your lead.
      Grissom: Everyone didn't find that baby. I did. And that little boy is dead because someone lost their temper or screwed up, or god knows what. So, excuse me, but this victim is special.

    • (Grissom hands Nick two soda bottles to process)
      Nick: No, thanks, I'm an iced tea man.

    • (After getting punched in the head by a paparazzi)
      Catherine (hands him an ice pack): Ice.
      Grissom: I don't need this.
      Catherine: Just do it. (Grissom holds the ice pack on his head)

    • Catherine: You're an average family, burdened with a tragedy that put you under a microscope. That close, nobody can look good.

    • When Sara mentions that Grissom told her a few weeks ago that no victim is special she's referring to what he said to her in the earlier episode "Too Tough to Die."
