Catherine (to Grissom): Okay Mr. Wizard. Don Herbert is known as Mr. Wizard and had his own show Watch Mr. Wizard that premiered in 1951, then came Mr. Wizard's World that was broadcast in 1983 on Nickeloden. Mr. Wizard took Science to a fun level for kids and adults alike, he could make the impossible... possible. In the 1998 film Armageddon, also produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Harry Stamper jokingly calls Roland Quincy Mr. Wizard in a mocking fashion. Since both the film and C.S.I. are Bruckheimer productions, the Mr. Wizard reference could also be a small allusion to that film.
