  • Just didn't like the ending of GRS situation

    9.6
    The cab driver story was ok, the Lady Heather was pretty good, but the problem to me was the ending of the situation between Sara and Grissom.



    She was jealous, he knew she was jealous and they didn't discussed much about it, so i think that was missing.



    Some great scenes, like Catherine talking to Sara about Grissom and his connection to Lady Heather, and Sara not being able to say anything, speacially when Catherine said that relationships between people that work together dont work out.



    Looking for the next episode and i hope Grissom and Sara stay together and let the others know about them.moreless
  • Not so wild west.

    9.0
    I always enjoy watching CSI, but not all episodes. This one was alright, just not too exciting. The autopsies are always cool and gross at the same time, just the story was boring. I like that it brought Grissom and Sara's relationship more in the story, I like seeing it, I just hope they don't over do it by showing it too much. I'm really glad they showed Grissom making that model. I was worried last episode that they may make him the miniture killer, and for me, I certainly hope not. Seems like they will show more next week.moreless
  • One of the best to date.

    Lady Heather is always a fascinating character, and always adds drama to the Grissom and Sara love circle. Great episode, full of drama, humor, and romance!



    Best parts that I can remember:



    Greg: Why can't days keep anybody?

    Grissom: Money, stress, Ecklie...maybe.



    Brass: Guess who he called yesterday: Lady Heather.

    Catherine: Might have threatened her.

    Brass: And we both know how she likes to settle her own scores. I'm gonna get a warrant, but it may take me some time because I have to find a judge who isn't a client of hers.



    Grissom: I'm the only one Heather trusts.

    Sara: I get it.

    Grissom: Sara.

    Sara: Yeah? (Grissom can't think of what to say) It's fine. Do what you need to do.



    Catherine: You were with her all night, can you explain why? I know you don't go home and cuddle your insects every single night, but why would you go there knowing we're in the middle of an investigation? And now she's a prime suspect with you as her alibi.

    Grissom: It was a social call. That's all.

    Catherine: So, when your personal life gets tangled up in a case, that's off limits?

    Grissom: Yes.

    Catherine: Isn't that a little hypocritical?

    Grissom: Apparently so.

    Catherine: You know, I'd slap you but I think you'd enjoy it too much.



    Warrick (on seeing Doc Robbins yawn): What's the matter Doc, you been hitting it a little too hard?

    Doc. Robbins: No, canine insomnia. I'm fostering some puppies. Jack Russells. Had me up all night. How 'bout a puppy to keep you company?

    Warrick: No, if I stay up all night, it's not going to be because of a puppy.



    Catherine (after Sara has tried to change the subject three times): My fantasy does not include costumes. Not pain, and certainly not sawdust. (she dusts off her leg) You? (Sara turns away awkwardly)



    Catherine (noticing the rope on the floor): Did she have ligature marks?

    Brass: On her neck, yeah.

    Catherine: That doesn't make any sense. She's a dominatrix, not a submissive.

    Brass: Maybe the party just got out of control.

    Catherine: Somebody... didn't know the rules.



    (While Sara and Catherine are processing the crime scene)

    Catherine: Heather on the other hand, uninhibited, and can beat him at mental chess...

    (Sara can't believe what she's hearing)

    Catherine: They had chemistry and he's a scientist, I have no proof and I know he'd never tell me, but I'm certain they spent the night together...I wonder which one wore the chaps

    Sara: (clears her throat) Lots of coins and toothpicks, they don't sweep under here.

    Catherine: More power to him really to find someone outside of work, 'cause...you start fishing from the company pier and asking for trouble.

    (Sara has a look of total shock.)moreless
  • A mixture of Cabbies, Wild West and Dominatrix.

    9.9
    There's always something about Lady Heather. We havent seen her for some time, so it was good to see her again but you feel sad for her and Grissom, now that Grissom has got Sara. I really do enjoy Lady Heather and Grissom's on screen chemistry. Brave Sara was still doing her job and trying so hard not to be jealous. Anyway I digress. There's an attempted murder at a wild west saloon involving Heather. A Dead sherrif. A dead pickpocket. Seceretive cabbies and Greg getting demoted to day shift (LOL). All in a days work at CSI Las Vegas. Really looking forward to the season finalle. I wonder who the minituare killer is and which member of CSI doesnt make it.....

    Love The Show!!!!moreless
  • Lady Heather comes back

    10
    Once again Lady Heather, Grissom's main nemesis and friend at the same time comes back as someone tries to murder her. But what is even more worse, is that she won't name the attacker as the team must try to figure that out on their own. But meanwhile, Sara is uneasy about Grissom's "reunion" with the devious Heather!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Grissom is at the park talking with Jerome Kessler, in the first scene we can see a bottle of juice by Jerome's left side sitting on the bench, then we see the baby girl sitting on the blanket. Later when she approaches Jerome and Grissom she's holding the bottle and gives it to Grissom. There was no time for Jerome to give the bottle to the baby.

  • QUOTES (25)

    • Cab Dispatcher: You guys from the strip-o-gram? 'Cos last year for my birthday, a cop showed up with a phoney badge, started tearing his clothes off and trying to rub up on me. (laughs) I'm an excellent tipper.
      Nick (while he and Warrick try to keep straight faces): Well I'm sure you are but, uh, no ma'am we're not dancers, we're here about the warrant.

    • Heather: Leave me alone. I didn't ask you to save me.
      Grissom: I know, but what was I supposed to do? I'm your friend.

    • Jermone Kessler: Is this official police business?
      Grissom: No.
      Jermone Kessler: Did Heather send you?
      Grissom: No, I'm just a friend of hers.
      Jermone Kessler: Did she tell you about me?
      Grissom: Not really.
      Jermone Kessler: We married very young, it didn't last very long. Heather left without telling me that she was pregnant, I wasn't aware that I had a child until after Zoe was already dead.
      Grissom: And that's Zoe's daughter, Heather's granddaughter.
      Jermone Kessler: Her name's Allison. Why are you here?
      Grissom: I'm just trying to understand what's happening to her. I'm aware that the court has denied her visitation rights.
      Jermone Kessler: Wouldn't you?
      Grissom: I'm not so sure. Has Heather tried to give you any money for Allison?
      Jermone Kessler: Yes. The day before yesterday, I got a call from the bank. Heather has set of a very generous trust fund for her, no strings attached. And I assumed she sold her house.
      Grissom: Can you tell me how much?
      Jermone Kessler: 843,508 dollars. I know Heather closed the business a few months ago trying to convince the judge that she'd be a fit guardian. Had to be from the sale.
      Grissom: I wonder if she calculated the exact amount that it would cost to raise a child and put her through college. Especially at Harvard. That's where she sent Zoe. But it wasn't her house that she sold.

    • Lady Heather: You think I killed Mr. Porter and then used Grissom as my alibi?
      Brass: With your history, yes.

    • Brass (talking about Vernon Porter): I mean, you get assaulted at old western town, where he works and then he ends up dead. What is it? Just one big coincidence?
      Lady Heather: I already told you I was there on business, Mr. Porter had nothing to do with it.
      Brass: Yeah, but it was your business that got him killed. C'mon, we both know that you weren't there just for some western ho-down, so what were you doing there? (Heather just looks at him)

    • Brass (at Lady Heather's with a warrant): Where were you last night?
      Lady Heather: I was here.
      Brass: Can anyone verify that? Preferably someone not on the payroll.
      Lady Heather: Captain Brass would like to know where I was last night. (Brass and Catherine turn around to see who she's talking to)
      Grissom (walks out from a different room): She was here, with me. (Brass and Catherine look at him, then look at Heather and then look at each other in shock)

    • Lady: No joy ridin' and don't leave the doors off like you did last time.
      Nick: We just take them apart, not put 'em back together.
      Lady: You see? That's why nobody like to deal with yo' asses.

    • Lady Heather: Are you here in a professional capacity?
      Grissom: Does it make a difference?
      Lady Heather: Maybe not to you, but I feel exposed. The last time you saw me...
      Grissom: You had just lost your daughter.
      Lady Heather: That's not all I lost that night.

    • Lady Heather: I was planning an old west party. I was checking out the facilities.
      Brass: So, why couldn't you check them out during normal business hours?
      Lady Heather: It was my normal business hours.
      Brass: You know, we spoke to the night watchman, he said the gate was locked. How'd you get in?
      Lady Heather: I know the owner.
      Brass: Do you know him the way that you know Judge Finchner? Because I know that's how you got outta jail last time.

    • Vernon Porter: 8:00, 10:00, 12:00 -- everything was Code 4.
      Brass: When did things go Code 3?

    • Nick (talking about lab results): Are you sure about this?
      Hodges: I just finished a diabolical sudoku in six minutes flat. I'm positive.

    • Catherine: Okay, come on, Jim. Give it up. I know you know something about Grissom and Lady Heather.
      Brass: I know something a lot juicier than Grissom and Lady Heather.

    • (After Grissom tells him that he has to work dayshift because they're shorthanded)
      Greg: Why can't days keep anybody?
      Grissom: Money, stress, Ecklie...maybe.

    • Brass (looking through Vernon Porter's cell phone): Guess who he called yesterday? Lady Heather.
      Catherine: Might have threatened her.
      Brass: And we both know how she likes to settle her own scores. I'm gonna get a warrant, but it may take me some time because I have to find a judge who isn't a client of hers.

    • Grissom: I'm the only one Heather trusts.
      Sara: I get it.
      Grissom: Sara.
      Sara: Yeah? (Grissom can't think of what to say) It's fine. Do what you need to do.

    • Catherine: You were with her all night, can you explain why? I know you don't go home and cuddle your insects every single night, but why would you go there knowing we're in the middle of an investigation? And now she's a prime suspect with you as her alibi.

      Grissom: Apparently so.
      Catherine: You know, I'd slap you but I think you'd enjoy it too much.
      Grissom: Look, I went to Heather's on a hunch. There's something not right with her.
      Catherine: Hmm, your timing sucked. (Grissom raises his eyebrow at her)

    • Hodges (on seeing Nick's shirt covered in blood): Have you been shaving with a broken beer bottle?
      Nick: No, no. Some drunk driver ran into a radio car at my crime scene, freaking idiot.
      Hodges: Yeah, I heard you pulled the freaking idiot's friend out of a burning car.
      Nick: Nothing was on fire, and I didn't pull anybody from anywhere.
      Hodges: Ah, so humble. You know some people are just destined for greatness.

    • Warrick (on seeing Doc Robbins yawn): What's the matter Doc, you been hitting it a little too hard?
      Doc. Robbins: No, canine insomnia. I'm fostering some puppies. Jack Russells. Had me up all night. How 'bout a puppy to keep you company?
      Warrick: No, if I stay up all night, it's not going to be because of a puppy.

    • Sara: I'm here to collect your clothes and trace evidence from your body.
      Heather: Can I say no?
      Sara: Why would you want to? (to Brass) Did the nurse forget to collect an SAE kit?
      Heather: Not necessary.
      Brass: You don't want help, that's okay by me. Just don't waste my time. I've got a lot of cases on my desk that need my attention. So when you come out of your haze, give me a call.
      Heather: I don't respond well to men who judge me based solely on my profession.
      Sara: I get that a lot too, law enforcement. (they share a smile)

    • Nick: Sometimes I miss the days when I didn't take this job so personal, Warrick.
      Warrick: Yeah, well I miss the days when we only had five homicides a week.

    • Warrick (on picking up the victims purse): This things heavier than my kit. Ever get hit in the head with one of these?
      Nick: No, gentlemen don't get hit in the head with those.

    • Catherine (at the crime scene): S and M. A rich man's sport. Kinda like hockey, a lot of equipment.
      Sara: How much do you think a night like this would cost?
      Catherine: Heather told me, five years ago she was clearing twenty grand a week. And that was before LadyHeather.com.
      Sara (after a moment): What is she like?
      Catherine: Beautiful, smart, intense... charming. The only woman I've ever seen rattle Grissom. I mean, he kinda liked that forensic anthropologist, Terri Miller, remember her?
      Sara (uneasy): Yeah.
      Catherine: But, she wasn't enough of a challenge for him. Heather on the other hand, uninhibited, and can beat him at mental chess... (Sara can't believe what she's hearing) They had chemistry and he's a scientist, I have no proof and I know he'd never tell me, but I'm certain they spent the night together... I wonder which one wore the chaps.
      Sara (clears her throat): Lots... of coins... and toothpicks, they don't sweep under here.
      Catherine: More power to him really to find someone outside of work, 'cause... you start fishing from the company pier and asking for trouble. (Sara has a look of total shock)
      Sara: I found a shot glass. Looks like there's lipstick around the rim.
      Catherine: My fantasy does not include costumes. Not pain, and certainly not sawdust. (she dusts off her leg) You? (Sara turns away awkwardly)

    • Catherine: Lady Heather has a house for this. Why take her show on the road?
      Brass (motions to the piano): Do you think you know how to ... ?
      Catherine: Yeah. (turns off the piano)
      Brass: Oh, you're a genius. (motions to the floor) Well, this is where we found her.
      Catherine (noticing the rope on the floor): Did she have ligature marks?
      Brass: On her neck, yeah.
      Catherine: That doesn't make any sense. She's a dominatrix, not a submissive.
      Brass: Maybe the party just got out of control.
      Catherine: Somebody... didn't know the rules.

    • Brass (about Lady Heather): Like a bad penny, some people just keep showing up.
      Catherine: Did you call Grissom?
      Brass: No.
      Catherine: Who found her?
      Brass: Guy over there in the ten gallon, Vernon Porter. He's the night watchman. All the employees are required to wear that cowboy getup. That's the job cops get after they retire.
      Catherine: You've got something to look forward to Jim.
      Brass: Yes, ma'am.

    • Brass: So your sick fantasy was to kill her?
      Ben Oakley: I didn't do anything. She solicited me. Strictly a business deal. She needed the money. I paid her close to $1 million for this, you know that? That's about all I'm gonna say. I'll be talking with my lawyer. (Officers leave with Jack)
      Brass: Too bad you spent the million. You could use it on your defense. (Brass turns to look at Lady Heather sitting in her chair) Look, Heather, for what it's worth, I think you're in the clear. The DA's not gonna press charges. Attempted murder, assisted suicide, the lines are kind of blurred. But do yourself a favor. Get some help. (Heather is silent)
