  • Trivia

    • Goof: Even though Langston has been a CSI only for awhile and Wendy has been in the field only few times, they don't have any of the older CSIs to supervise them in the crime scene. Isn't there a danger that they might make some mistakes because of their lack of experience? It doesn't seem likely that the crime lab, that is supposed to be second best in the country, would take this kinds of risks in a murder investigation.

  • Quotes

    • Doc Robbins: Bullets sometimes take a long and winding road before they reach their destination.
      Nick: Some people, too.

    • (Nick and Riley are trying to un-bend the victim's legs, since they are stuck from rigor, they make a cracking sound as they do)
      Riley: This reminds me of David's back.

    • (Wendy is piecing back together the broken vase)
      Langston: Are you tryin' to do my job?
      Wendy: No... Y-yes, a little. Mandy dusted everything for fingerprints and unfortunately she came up emtpy, but look at this. But I think these fragments, the ones that Garrett found so delicious, I think that they used to be a vase that was actually stolen from the Iraqi National Museum. I think it was smuggled in, like drug dealer style, 'cause basically all you have to do is take an antique vase and wrap it up in cellophane and you fill it with all these little plastic do-dads, and candy and slap and 'Made in China' sticker on there, and that priceless piece of art can just sail through U.S Customs like a Tijuana pinata.

    • Wendy: These are Mesopotamian vases. Circa 700 B.C. These should be in a museum.
      Langston: Yeah, they're trophies. Collecting's pathological whether you're a rich man or a serial killer.

    • (The victim's cat is licking a broken piece of an ancient pot)
      Langston: And I thought dogs would eat anything.

    • Langston: Thank you for helping out today, Wendy.
      Wendy: Oh, I'm happy to. We had a lotta bodies today. I mean, I'm not happy that we had a lot of bodies today.

    • Wendy: That is a whole lot of face smashing. Do you think it was a crime of passion?
      Langston: That is what it takes to make great art. (looks over at the victim's face)

    • Brass: That is so sad. What old movie did you steal it from? Well, you're just one lie wrapped in another.
      Carsten Morton: It's the truth, I swear to God. Even if it never happened.

    • Mickey Ross (after a DNA swab): You let me know what comes back from the... electrophoris gel. It's how they blood type DNA. I played a medical examiner in Killer Instinct 3.
      Wendy: Well, I'll catch that on the History Channel, 'cause we stopped blood typing about 15 years ago.
      Detective Vartann (walks in): Is he hitting on you?
      Wendy: Yeah, but not very well. (her phone beeps) And unluckily, I have to go because someone lost a contact lens.

    • Catherine: Well, the blood void means the tortoise was there during the shooting. And this print, it's gotta belong to the killer. (Mandy looks a little nervous) Mandy, what are you thinking?
      Mandy: The ASPCA is gonna shut us down.
      Catherine: Mandy.
      Mandy: The amido black, it's minimally toxic, it won't hurt him.
      Catherine: I'll be gentle.
      Hodges: I wonder if he's a rare species, 'cause I read that African Tortoises can be worth as much as 10,000 dollars.
      Mandy: Just please hurry, okay? 'Cause he's been traumatized enough already.
      Hodges: He's a material witness in a homicide investigation.
      Mandy: I meant traumatized by you.

    • Riley: What do we have here? This is about a hundred grand.
      Greg: Maybe he figures a car trunk is safer than a 401(k).
      Riley: These days, he's probably right.

    • Riley: Isn't this sweet? He drives Mommy's old Cutlass to go commit murder.

    • (Langston and Wendy talking about an ancient jar)
      Langston: It's fake.
      Wendy: How do you know?
      Langston: The cat told me.

    • Detective Vartann: You see you can ditch a gun, toss your phone, but voicemails are forever.
      Mickey: Even when you delete 'em off your own phone, huh?
