  • Quotes

    • Nick: You know, I almost threw out something Grissom gave me. Ah, yeah. Blue marble.
      Sara: Oh.
      Nick: You know what he said when he gave that to me?
      Sara: Something profound, I'm sure.
      Nick: He said, "Nicky, if life ever gets crazy..."
      Sara: "...roll with it." He gave me the same marble. (both laugh) You should hold onto that.

    • Sara: Sometimes when we're faced with crimes that are so...incomprehensible we want answers. We want to believe that there's some order to things. Sometimes there just isn't.

    • (at the hoarder's house)

      Sara: Well, it smells more like somebody died like this.
