  • At an upscale wedding, a high profile defense attorney (who is also the mother of the groom) turns up dead. To make matters worse, Stokes' truck, which contains almost all of the evidence in the case, is stolen from a diner parking lot.moreless

    This episode of CSI is definitely the best of the season. Seeing the same scene from the point of view of each member of Grissom's team was a very clever idea. It gave the viewer not just a look at the crime scene but a look inside the minds of the team members (Saunders has read one too many detective novels) and that's always a welcome thing. It gives the characters depth and their own identities. I hope to see more of that in future episodes. This episode of CSI definitely hit the bullseye. No doubt about it.moreless
  • Brilliant episode with flashback re-tellings of an investigation through the eyes and mindsets of our favourite CSIs.

    9.5
    The msytery: The mother of a groom was killed during the wedding, and the CSIs try to solve the case as per usual, except that they're tryin to do so without any evidence collected at the scene since that was all stolen along with Nick's car. Fantastic episode, primarily because of the flashback re-tellings of the investigation through the different perspectives of each CSI. Sara goes the cynical route, questioning the pretensions of an elaborate wedding ceremony - "Can the love be real when the flowers aren't?". Nick goes the romantic route, proclaiming that weddings are a public declaration of a couple's love - "A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet with that much love in the air". Grissom goes the scientific route, typically detached as he shows more interest in a ladybird than in the wedding decor - "The blossoms of desire do belong and harmonia axyridis fly along". Finally my favourite by far, Greg goes the fantasy route, make believing that he's a Humphrey Bogart-esque detective solving a film noir murder mystery - "A dame was dead, but enough about her. The air was hot and heavy with wrong, making me thirsty, thirsty for a tall drink of water". Brilliant! It's also very funny to see the image of David uttering the same sentence over and over again in each re-telling - "You'd think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day", except the voice that comes out of David's mouth was never his own!moreless
  • The CSIs canvas the seemingly brutal murder of a young bride's mother-in-law... which took place at her own wedding reception. As facts unfold, it isn't just one lead, a stolen van full of evidence and runny diner eggs that breaks the case.moreless

    9.5
    I'd like to start out by saying that box sets of CSI used to be what got me through twelve hour shifts when I used to work at a video game store solo for hours. I basically felt like one of the team, at that point. It was just me and the guys. However, I hadn't watched an episode in a while... when this one showed up. And magic happened.



    From the first few scenes at the diner where marriage goes from a 'property exchange between your father and your husband' via Sara to a 'public declaration of love' via Nick with Greg looking on, I knew I was in for a treat. Oh, and I wasn't disappointed.



    Shortly after coffee, Nick's SUV is nowhere to be found. The theft is problematic enough by itself, but the bad luck compounds tenfold with the fact that the vehicle also carries precious cargo; all the evidence from the crime scene the the team had just returned from. The scene itself had been a post-wedding celebration. The mother of the groom, Diane Chase - a lawyer, and one-time defender of organized crime associates - had been brutally murdered. During the reception.



    Mazal tov.



    This episode actually goes out of its way to entertain, employing a gallows sense of humor, and some film-noir aspects, as well.



    The title of the episode itself, pays homage to the Kurosawa film, 'Rashoman', also a story of murder based off of four separate perspectives of the same crime. Pretty brilliant, actually. And no less brilliantly carried out on the part of the writer, Sarah Goldfinger, or director Kenneth Fink. The actors' steller performances speak for themselves. It's obvious, even to the casual viewer that a lot of fun was had on the set.



    Cut to the exterior of Frank's Coffee Shop.



    (Grissom instructs the CSIs.)



    GRISSOM: I'll talk. You guys just look apologetic.

    (Nick takes his sunglasses off and tucks them in his pocket. Jeff McKeen walks up to them.)

    JEFF MCKEEN: All right, let me see if I understand this correctly. You let one of the members of your team drive his personal vehicle to a crime scene investigation; and then, even though there was a perfectly good crime scene vehicle there, that personal car was crammed with every bit of evidence collected at a major murder investigation, because two of you were maxed out on overtime. And then the driver, of said car, instead of securing that evidence in the lab, gave priority to his need for runny eggs and the aforementioned vehicle was stolen from a parking lot filled with police cars. Is there anything I missed?

    GRISSOM: Just this: Even if we recover the vehicle, the chain of custody has been broken, so all the evidence has been compromised.

    (Jeff McKeen removes an antacid from his roll.)

    GRISSOM: No judge will allow any of it to be admitted into court. Also, we released the crime scene, so it, too, is compromised, leaving us nothing to go back for.

    JEFF MCKEEN: Thank you for clarifying the situation.

    (He pops the tablet in his mouth, glares at the silent CSIs, turns and heads back to his car.)



    (sigh) Well, I thought he was trying to help.



    After Grissom preps the kids that ISA is heading their way to take their statements, he warns them to avoid looking any worse than they do, they have to remember all the crime scene data they can, given the circumstances. So, Nick, Greg and Sara head to the break room to pull thoughts and ready their statements, Brass handles McKeen, and Grissom gets the first run of conclusions from Phillips about Diane Chase's body.



    The game is afoot. Or, actually, a very bloody, very deceased lawyer tied to the back of a convertible with a 'Just Married' sign on it.



    Back in the break room, the diner buddies try to recollect what they each saw while collecting evidence at the scene; this is where the real charm of the episode begins to show through. We're treated to film-noir type techniques of the dramatic pan, the over-dub of the characters' voices as they recount their experiences. I wouldn't have been any less delighted, then if they'd stuck 'it was a dark and stormy night' in there, somewhere. What I thought for a dread-filled second would metamorphose into cliche, repetitious hell was turned out as glorious comedy genius. And where? In the belly of drama.



    The more realistic, comedic take on grim reality is one of the hardest, yet also most rewarding things one can do as a writer. The technique really pays off in this case, over and over throughout the episode. I won't strip the joy of the actual experience, but starting with Sara, we get to see each character's point of view, each shot in different ways as they remember what evidence they collected, who they spoke to. The most delightful recount, I thought, was Greg's; it was shot in full blown Sin City type black and white down to the blood red of the bridesmaids' lipstick, and 'Cagney' over-dub.



    SARA: (v.o.) Can the love be real when the flowers aren't?



    Oh, I think it can.



    Our CSIs spend the remainder of the episode discovering that bridesmaids were originally decoys for the bride to stave off assassins, getting hit by Cupid's arrow may ruin your day more than anything else, that a good paint job can really make up for dings and scrapes on an SUV from a bad tow job... and above all, that none of our stories are the same.



    My only (and I say 'only' as in speck of dust 'only') gripe was that the 'who-dun-nit' was kind of obvious, but then again... if the god-awful heel that usually match a bridesmaids' dress fits...

    In that same vein, although in a frightful segue, I must say, the dialogue was so quirky and charming, it drew me back towards the outstanding Darin Morgin episodes of X-Files fame ('Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose', 'Jose' Chung's 'From Outer Space''). I thought about 'Rashomama' for days afterward, and absolutely enjoyed every second of it - so much so, I had to emote through television review. Now that's passion.



    Now that I think about it, yeah - I saw the ending coming. I'm a writer, that's my job, kinda. But sometimes, that's a good thing. After the wedding speech of the newly christened mother-in-law/wedding favor, I think the temptation to go 'Heathers' on her was just too much. Sometimes, drugs just aren't enough to make the problem go away. That, or an entire lifetime of wedded bliss.



    'No, thanks mom. You REALLY shouldn't have.'moreless
  • This episode begins with Nick's car get stolen.

    9.0
    Nick's car get stolen, with all of the crime scene evidence inside the car. Because the car is stolen, it cause a very, very huge problem to the CSIs as the crime scene has been released and all of the evidence has been stolen. The CSI has to use their theory, or whatever they remember to solve the crime. And in the meantime, find back Nick's car.



    OK. This episode is not as good as other people said. If you watch this episode, you will find out everybody has a flashback that begins with Palmer speaking. Well actually I expect more scientific investigation than drama. What happenned on the wedding is shocking, I like that, but I don't like those "flashback". I hate it. I prefer more scientific investigation than drama. However, this episode is still consider good, but not perfect for me.moreless
  • This is an absolutely AMAZING episode because there is a twist: Nick's truck gets stolen. The theft really makes the case challenging for the team, which is already under a lot of pressure because the murder victim is a high-profile lawyer.moreless

    9.9
    Nick, Sara and Greg are at a diner. Nick's truck gets stolen. The Undersheriff comes to yell at them. Even if the truck is recovered, the evidence has already been compromised. The team have only their wits and a wedding video to rely on.



    I really really loved this episode. Mostly because of the flashbacks, which told watchers something about the character's personality, his/her view towards marriage/interacting with members of the opposite gender, and at the same time also unravelling the case. I especially LOVED Greg's flashback. It was almost all in black and white, but the red of the bridemaids' lipstick and the blood of the murder victim shone alarmingly scarlet. Another reason why this episode is whipplescrumptious is that the personalities of the other characters are so strong and interesting. "Rashomama" is not all seriousness, though. There are countless humorous moments, my favorite was when the caterer was talking to Grissom. A connected confession wrapped up this fantabulous episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (8)

    • This episode states that Nick's private vehicle is a 'Ford Explorer' 2004 model.

    • Differences in the flashbacks:
      Sara: Has a pessimistic view.
      Nick: Hopeless Romantic.
      Grissom: Notices the ladybug (of course)
      Greg: Film Noir, an example of his continued interest in the Gangster Era.

    • Goof: When Undersheriff McKeen arrives at the diner where Nick's car was stolen, we see Nick take off his sunglasses and places them in his pocket. However, every time the camera zooms out on McKeen, we can see that Nick is still wearing the sunglasses.

    • Goof: While Catherine, Nick, Greg and Sara are watching the wedding toast, Diane Chase says, drunkenly, "Oh, I want to thank you all so much for coming. I love you, Adam." When they show Grissom the wedding toast, it ends with Diane Chase saying, "Thank you all for coming. I love you Adam," in a calmer way.

    • Greg's phone is set to play "Feel Like Makin Love" by Bad Company when it rings.

    • The locker room scene towards the end is Gary Dourdan's (Warrick Brown) only appearance in this episode.

    • In the lab Greg compares the arrowhead of the statue to the photo from the autopsy. During that whole scene the statue jumps back and forth from postions everytime the camera changes the angle.

    • Jorja Fox, like her character Sara, is a bit pessimistic when it comes to weddings. Says Fox: "I am not really acting in this episode, I just show up. Deep down inside, I think there is a romantic that lives inside Sara, but I think she thinks that a lot of people get married for the wrong reason and the wrong way and this wedding is a good example."

  • QUOTES (26)

    • (Nick's car arrives in the garage with half naked women painted on it)
      Brass: Hey pimp. How do you like your new ride?
      Catherine: Hey look, they fixed it.
      Nick (whining): Ooh, Ooh, that's not funny.
      Catherine: Oh, it's a little funny.

    • (After Wendy tells them the DNA results)
      Greg: We could compare them to the bucal swabs that we collected...if we still had them.
      Sara: Well we just have to recollect them.
      Greg: All 200 of them?
      Sara: Yeah. And since we can't leave...someone else is...gonna have to recollect them.
      Nick: This is crap. I've been waiting on IAB for 14 hours. I'm tired. And I kinda smell. And I don't have a friggen car.

    • Nick (walking in): What's up?
      Sara (holding up the bride's lingerie): I need your hands.
      Nick: I thought you'd never ask.
      Sara (smirks): To uh...reprint the bumper because the tape lifts were stolen.

    • Catherine: So, you took the perimeters, right?
      Nick: Yeah.
      Catherine: Well, I caught this guy in the shadows, he looks more like a suspect than a guest. Archie blew it up. (shows Nick the pictures) That face look familiar?
      Nick: Yeah, yeah, I caught that guy sleepin' one of in the bushes. It's the groom's old man.
      Catherine: Wow, I thought my wedding was bad.

    • Sara: Why do we always come here?
      Greg: Open 24 hours.
      Sara: Everything in Vegas is open 24 hours.
      Greg: It's cheap.
      Nick (walks in): It smells like bacon in here. (to Sara) Slide over. (he sits down) That scene took forever, we were there like what? 9 hours?
      Sara: Eleven.
      Greg: A dead lawyer and 200 eyewitnesses, it's gonna take a while.
      Nick: Come for a wedding, stay for the funeral. Why do we always eat here?
      Greg: It's tradition.
      Sara: Ah tradition. Like becoming property exchanged between your father and your husband.
      Nick: No, that's not what a wedding is. It's a public declaration of love.
      Greg: I'm with Vince Vaughn on this one. Dozens of horny single women with access to an open bar and coupling on their mind.
      Waitress (walking up): Weddings are a Rorschach, everyone sees what they wanna see. My first 5 were good. (walks away)
      Greg (looking up and seeing the news): We're not even back to the lab yet and we're already on TV. (Sara and Nick turn to look at the TV) The stones on these guys to take her out at her son's wedding.
      Nick (to Sara): Pass the cream will ya.
      Greg (to Nick, looking outside): Dude, where's your car?

    • (During flashback)
      Grissom: That's a tight schedule. She would have barely had time to go to the bathroom.
      Frank Rosetti: I don't sell bridal diapers for nothin'.
      (Cuts back to the lab)
      Greg: He was just kiddin' about the diapers, right?

    • Frank Rosetti: I'm a 42-year-old paisan, and she scared me. I wouldn't be surprised if her pantyhose rebelled against her and tied themselves to the car.

    • (After IAB finally arrive)
      Undersheriff McKeen: So who wants to go first?
      Grissom (looks around): I don't think it matters I'm sure our stories are all the same.

    • (After finding a bottle of Diazapam in the brides things)
      Greg: Ah oh, looks like we had some brides little helper going on.

    • Nick: Where's the statue?
      Greg: In your car.
      Nick: Ah.

    • Jill (about her mother-in-law): She made the past six months of my life hell. So, I told anyone that would listen that she should die a fiery death and now everyone is gonna think that I killed her.
      Grissom: Would you like to be more specific?
      Jill: Okay, well when we got engaged, um...she ran into the backyard and she screamed "Why God, why me?" Okay. She wore white today. She-- She invited Adam's very, very, attractive, very um...single ex-girlfriend. When she found out that I had registered for sporting goods and she went behind my back and changed the registry to housewears. Saying that I better learn how to cook. Okay, I'm a vegetarian and she demanded roast beef. Um...and then, then there's the toast. The toast.
      Grissom: Are you trying to make me think that you didn't kill her?
      Jill: I would never do that to Adam. I-I honestly don't know how such an amazing man came from...from...that.

    • Catherine: Anyone interested in the wedding DVD?
      Greg, Nick & Sara: Yeah.
      Catherine: Courtesy of Frank Rosetti. Owner of Cupid's Kiss. (puts the DVD in) All right, where do you wanna start?
      Greg, Nick & Sara: The toast. (Catherine puts on the toast, and they watch)
      Dianne Chase (on DVD): Everyone, I wanna thank you for coming. You know, they say love is as strong as death and as mother of the groom his wedding is bitter sweet. You are giving up as much as you are gaining. In some cases you are giving up much more. (loses her speech as she starts to get tipsy) To hell with it, I'll wing it. My Adam. He studied at Oxford, he went to Harvard school of business and of all the intelligent, wonderful, beautiful women he met along the way he ended up with Jill, plain little Jill. There's nothing wrong with her, but what's right with her? Haha, even her name is boring. (turns to Adam) It's alright to take a lover, but you really don't have to marry her. I mean, do you really wanna shallow our gene pool like this? (Adam tries to get her to leave) I wanna thank you all so much for coming, oh I love you Adam. (Catherine pauses the DVD after the toast is done)
      Catherine: Justifiable homicide?

    • (Looking at a napkin with lipstick, name and a number)
      Greg: Did you get a number?
      Nick: No. No, I didn't get anything. She must have put it in my pocket. Mindy. (Sara smirks at him)

    • Sara (going through her flashback): I remember David saying: "You think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day." (shows Sara walking under the arch) So there we were at Cupid's Kiss, a nuptial neverland where the cheese factor was dangerously high and the flowers were obviously... fake. Can the love be real when the flowers aren't? (she sees Nick talking to the bridesmaids who are talking jibberish, then it cuts back to them in the lab)
      Nick: You really have a thing about weddings don't you?
      Sara: Hey, I didn't interview them. It was just my impression.
      (cuts back to her flashback)
      Sara: Hi. Sara Sidle, I'm with the crime lab.
      Bryce Gundy: Heya! Bryce Gundy, groom's side.
      Sara: Did you guys decorate the wedding car with those beer cans?
      Bryce Gundy: Yep.
      Sara: Did you drink all of the beer first?
      Bryce Gundy: Yep.
      Sara: Awesome. Did you also tie the groom's mom to the bumper?
      Bryce Gundy: No.
      Sara: Good chat. Um, I'm gonna need to get your fingerprints so that I can compare them to the ones I got off the car.
      Bryce Gundy: Cool.
      Sara: You are aware that someone has died...?
      Bryce Gundy: No one's going to miss her except her son or her cellphone provider.
      Sara: Ooh, what do you mean?
      Bryce Gundy: She's creepy close to Adam. Called him like 15 times a day.
      Sara: Huh. Do you mind just putting your finger right here? (Bryce tries to do that, but since he's drunk he falls into Sara who catches him) Okay, Mr. Gundy...
      Bryce: I think I love you.
      Sara: Uh, thank you. You need to sit down. (pushes him away) Have a club soda. (Bryce passes out) Hey, you dropped this... (Mikey comes and grabs the piece of lingerie)
      Mikey: Sorry about him. Why do the jerks get all the tail?
      Sara (smiles): Sara... Sidle, crime lab.
      Mikey: I'm Mikey, brother of the bride, best man. (they go to shake hands but don't since Mikey took the underwear from her with his bare hand) Hey, this is a pretty crazy ass situation, huh? They say it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day, what do you think about a dead body?
      Sara: What do you think?
      Mikey: I think my sister's better off. You ever think about getting married? (Sara is speechless and starts shaking her head) I'm just saying, you know I think Bryce can make an honest woman out of ya. (looking at a passed out Bryce) Oh look at that, your rejection broke his little heart. (Sara starts to laugh)
      (Cuts back to lab)
      Nick: Should I put flirting in the casefile?
      Sara: I was printing. He was flirting.

    • Undersheriff McKeen (talking to Brass about the case): It's gonna look like the CSI's were paid off, no one's gonna believe it was an unfortunate series of coincidences. So my choices are we're idiots or we're dirty. So which are we?

    • Brass (sees Undersheriff McKeen coming): Incoming.
      Grissom (to Nick, Sara and Greg): I'll talk, you guys just look apologetic.
      Undersheriff McKeen: Let me see if I understand this correctly. You let one of the members of your team drive his personal vehicle to a crime scene investigation, and even though there was a perfectly good crime scene vehicle there that personal car was crammed with every bit of evidence collected at a major murder investigation because two of you were maxed out on overtime. (Sara smirks and looks towards Greg who looks at the ground) And then the driver of said car, instead of securing that evidence in the lab, gave priority to his need for runny eggs, and the aforementioned vehicle was stolen from the parking lot filled with police cars. (Brass raises his eyebrows) Is there anything I missed?
      Grissom: Just this: Even if we recover the vehicle the chain of custody has been broken (shows Undersheriff McKeen opening a roll of Rolaids) so all the evidence has been compromised. No judge will allow any of it to be admitted into court. Oh, and also, we released the crime scene, so it too has been compromised, leaving us nothing to go back for.
      Undersheriff McKeen: Thank you...for clearing up the situation. (leaves)
      Brass: It could have been worse. (shows Undersheriff McKeen leaving in his car, knocking down all the construction cones and speeding off)

    • (Talking them through his flashback)
      Greg (walking under the arch): "You'd think she knew better than to wear white on the bride's big day." A dame was dead, but enough about her. The air was hot and heavy and filled with wrong, making me thirsty. Thirsty for a tall drink of water. That's when I saw her-- A flower-- and not the kind you pin on a lapel. She was long stemmed...
      Sara: All right, Raymond Chandler, we get it.
      Greg (voiceover during his flashback as he sees two bridesmaids): Those weren't just miracle bras, they were creating four wonders of the world.
      (Now during the flashback)
      Greg: Hi, I'm Greg Sanders, with the crime lab. I need to take your prints.
      Valerie: That's quite a case you got there, is it your magic kit?
      Lacey: Or your toy box?
      Greg: You don't seem to be too upset about what happened.
      Valerie: Sweetheart, I've had so many martinis I'm both shaken and stirred.
      Greg: Numbing the pain?
      Lacey: Look, we're not gonna be all liquid and soft okay? All that's missing here is the striped socks.
      Valerie: Ding-dong the witch is dead.
      Greg: So you're not a fan?
      Lacey: Cruella made me wear underwear today, no one makes me wear underwear.
      Valerie (grabbing a swab): I'll do you if you do me. (Lacey opens her mouth and then Valerie swabs it)
      (Cuts back to the lab)
      Sara: They did not.
      Nick: So how does that help explain how Dianne Chase died?
      Greg: I'm gettin' there.

    • (Going through his flashback)
      Nick (walking under arch): "You'd think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day." The perfume of American Beauties was everywhere, though a rose by any other name would have smelled just as sweet with that much love in the air.

    • (Going through his flashback)
      Grissom: "You'd think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day." (reciting poetry as he's walking under the arch) Spring is but a song, Where love and laughter are not wrong. The blossoms of desire do belong, and harmonia axyridis fly along.

    • Mindy: I am not a bad person, and we didn't exactly kill her. I like to think she killed herself because she was...
      (Cuts to Cindy)
      Cindy: Crazy. She did crazy things to our friend. I mean, who hates a pediatric nurse? Granted, we'd been drinking a little, but she drove us to it. Sisterhood is...
      (Cuts to Valerie)
      Valerie: Powerful this and powerful that. She was on a total trip. We couldn't let our friend endure a life of that. I tried to shut her up with the drugs, but that backfired, leaving us...
      (Cuts to Lacey)
      Lacey: No choice, she was coming at me. I just defended myself, I didn't mean to take her down. But for what she was, I felt nothing. There she was just staring at me and all I could think was, thank God.

    • Mikey: Where's that Sara chick?
      Catherine: Oh Romeo, I don't think you'll have time for romance. You're being charged with grand theft auto, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to murder...
      Mikey: Okay. I will cop to everything but the murder.
      Catherine: Well, if you didn't commit the murder, why did you steal the car?
      Mikey: Look, the lady was already dead, all right? And then you guys show up...and then this bridesmaid comes up to me and starts askin' me all these questions about my tow truck.
      Catherine: Which bridesmaid?
      Mikey: The hot one. The next thing I know she wants to be the Bonnie to my Clyde. She asked me to steal this car and trash all the evidence.
      Catherine: So you committed grand theft auto to get laid?
      Mikey: Have you ever stolen a two-ton piece of machinery? It's way better than sex. And finding a girl that doesn't wanna kick you to the curb for it? I mean c'mon, that's hot! Besides, I haven't gotten a wedding gift for my sister yet.

    • Grissom: Did you know the original role of the bridesmaid was to act as a human shield against the bride's enemies?
      Sara: Women would dress similar to the bride in an effort to confuse and outsmart evil spirits that might try to overtake the bride on her wedding day.
      Nick: Wow, for somebody who's anti-wedding you sure know a lot about it.
      Sara: I'm not anti-wedding, I'm just anti-stupid. You know, people who do things for the sake of tradition with no clue as to why...
      Grissom (gives her a look): Anyway...

    • Brass: So you didn't kill her...
      Ernest Chase: No, but you'd better check to see if she's really dead, because I don't think you can't kill the devil! (Brass laughs)

    • Catherine (to Grissom): So aside from the shooting, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the show?

    • Nick: Hey, Jim... I need a ride. (Brass and Sofia laugh)

    • Hodges: You know, you and me, we're not the marrying kind. The intricacies of our nature can't be understood by just one woman.
      Grissom: Would you close the door, please? (Hodges shuts the door with himself still in the office) From the other side.
