Grissom says that he became obsessed with chess to the point that "...whenever I closed my eyes I could see the chess pieces moving all around the board...", this is an example of what is known as the Tetris Effect. The Tetris effect is the result of any activity that sufficient time is spent on, to the point that it dominates your thoughts.
Gil's worked at CSI for 22 years and has worked over 2,000 murder cases.
This is the first episode where the team really finds out about Grissom and Sara with Grissom's words about why Natalie kidnapped Sara. Although a relationship is never specifically mentioned, by the reactions of the team they certainly figured something out.
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.
We found out that David finally got married.
Sara finally gets to read the letter that Grissom wrote her but did not send during the earlier season episode "Meet Market."
We find out that Warrick and Tina are no longer together.
Hank Conners is wearing the newest Army field uniform (his pants); The ACU (Army Combat Uniform). It replaced the BDU (Battle Dress Uniform, the green, black and brown) and the DCU (Desert Combat Uniform, the tan, cream and brown).
Goof: When Grissom turns on the projector the light is red but the picture on the screen is blue.
Goof: The "arrows" which were shot are clearly arrows. Arrows are shot from bows. The shooter is clearly using a crossbow, however. The similar objects shot by crossbows are bolts, or quarrels, and are shorter and generally much thicker through the shaft, partly to take the extra stress of the force used by a crossbow. They also would not have made a narrow hole through the throat as a result of this.
The area code for the phone that Wendy calls is 702, which is in southeastern Nevada.
Goof: Mandy has a disappearing and reappearing necklace during her conversation in the lab with Warrick.
During the commentary for Lab Rats they said that Carol Mendelsohn heard that on the CSI message boards fans were thinking that Hodges was the miniature killer so they added that part when Henry and Wendy looked at Hodges in the breakroom thinking that he could be the killer-- "where would I find the time I'm always here." They said they put that in as a response for the fans.
Hodges attempts to solve the miniature killer crime as he says that the day is his lucky day. The following "lucky" things happen to him: He finds a dollar bill on his way to work; a pretty girl smiles back at him; the dollar bill gets him three packets of potato chips from the snack machine (which are a brand name "Lucky Chips"); he wins an e-bay auction, and makes a 1 in 600 billion match on some evidence.
Part of Hodge's "lucky day" includes winning an auction for a board game based on the 70's sit com "Three's Company" on e-Bay. This type of game is a recurring theme for Hodges, who was seen playing the "Dukes of Hazzard" board game in the Quentin Tarentino episodes.
We learn that Doctor Albert Robbins (aka Doc Robbins) has a fear of rodents.
When the team is together in the conference room talking about the evidence, the scar on Sara's face from the scratch in the previous episode, "Empty Eyes," is still visible.
Goof: In the beginning of the episode the girls are going home at night. When they are in the kitchen there is a big light coming from the window. It seems to be the sun but as the girls came home at night it can not be, so it must be a projector.
Goof: Sara got blood on her left cheek, in the very beginning of this episode. But some minutes ahead, talking to Nick, there was no blood.
In the room that Grissom is processing at the house, there's a poster of the rapper, Dollar, from the Season 6 episode "Poppin' Tags."
