  • Quotes

    • Randy Bolen: Ten grand.
      Sofia: That's a lot of money for a guy like you.
      Randy Bolen: I've had worse nights.
      Sofia (chuckles): Yeah, I'm sure you have. You're having one now.

    • Catherine: So what's a guy dressed for a party, with a key to this hotel, doing out here?
      Grissom: I don't know. But the party's over.

    • David (after finding a stain on Jeffrey's boxers): Mom was right; always wear clean ones because you never know what could happen. What do you think that is?
      Warrick: Why don't you take a whiff?
      David: Why am I always the guy who has to sniff the shorts?
      Warrick: Because it's your job.
      David: You do it.
      Warrick (laughs and smells the shorts): Red wine.

    • Catherine: They probably thought that they just taught him a lesson.
      Grissom: They did: Don't confuse fantasy with reality.
      Greg: Well, hush money or not, you have to admit that whole fantasy night thing was a pretty cool gift from a very generous boss. (looks towards Grissom, who makes a face)
      Sara (smirking): Greg, don't you have a birthday coming up?
      Greg: Why, yes, Sara, I do.
      Catherine: I'm thinking, ear-shredding rock, a beautiful model, boatloads of sushi and...latex.
      Greg: Eh, that was last year.
      Grissom: I think fantasies are best kept private. (Grissom looks at Sara)
      (Nick comes in and they talk about the case a little)
      Nick: The biggest fantasy here in Vegas is that everything happens by chance. Nothing here happens by chance. The odds are set before you even walk off the plane. (leaves)
      Greg: You know, I'd settle for a birthday breakfast.
      Catherine: Now, that is a fantasy.

    • Sara: Please tell me there are something more to this guys and cars thing, besides the obvious penis extension metaphors.
      Greg: So you want me to lie?

    • (Archie stands up)
      Grissom: What are you doin'?
      Archie: I've been lookin' at video three days solid now. My butt fell asleep.
      (They review some more video tape and find something)
      Grissom: Well, call me Ishmael.
      Archie: Why?
      Grissom: You need to read more, Arch.

    • Caprice (to Grissom and Sara): Oh, and may all your dreams come true.

    • (Talking about pool cue chalk)
      Hodges: The abrasives give grip to the tip for when it hits the ball.
      Catherine: Stop tryin' to make that sound dirty. Our vic had a callus on his hand.
      Hodges: Mm...
      Catherine (cutting him off): Don't. Which means our vic was playin' alot of pool.
      Hodges: So where in this town do you go to shoot stick with a hot blonde and a Ferrari?

    • Catherine (reading website page): "Caprice unlimited. Anything is possible." (Cath picks up the phone) Sounds like a sex business.
      Sara: What are you gonna say?
      Catherine: Uh, something other than "A guy is dead and it looks like you're involved." (she gets a message machine) Not taking calls.

    • Greg: Mick Sheridan the movie producer? I grew up watchin' his action blockbusters--- car chases, ninjas, cyborg death machines. We used to make body armor out of tinfoil, and re-enact the scenes all over the neighborhood. What about you, where you a Green Beret kid? Secret agent?
      Grissom: I'm not tellin'. And stay away from my tinfoil.

    • (Going through the victims hotel room)
      Nick: Pair of jeans, full of holes. Musta been wearin' 'em a long time.
      Catherine: Either that or he just bought 'em and paid a fortune.
      Nick (picks up book): Oh, I remember my first time to Vegas. I got one of these, guide to blackjack. Everybody dreams of hittin' it big out here, don't they?
      Catherine: Yeah, well, if that ever ends you can kiss Vegas goodbye.

    • (Looking at the victim)
      Catherine: Nice clothes.
      Brass: Well, they do make the man.

    • Sofia (referring to the crash): Which means the Ferrari was the faster vehicle.
      Car Dealer: The Ferarri is always the faster vehicle.

    • Nick: Who wouldn't help a hot girl in distress?

  • Allusions

    • Grissom: Well, call me Ishmael.
      Archie: Why?
      Grissom: You need to read more, Arch.

      Grissom, in an earlier point of this scene, referred to a high-stakes gambler as a "whale." Later, when he makes this statement to Archie, he is referring to Herman Melville's Moby Dick about a whaling-boat captain's obsessive search for the "great white whale." The narrator of the story was a young man named Ishmael. A "whale" is a casino slang term used for a high rolling gambler.

    • Catherine (To Greg): I'm thinking, ear-shredding rock, a beautiful model, boatloads of sushi and...latex.

      All these things are things that Greg has been shown to like throughout the show.

    • Episode Title: Time of Your Death
