    Very clever plots. I always thought hunting was a cruel sport, so to see the same exacted on the hunter made me think in the recesses of my mind..."serves you right, payback bites...or in this case claws!



    A devoted mother goes out for a night on the town, with her best friend and ends up dead. First thought would be the husband, who the best friend claims has cheated on his wife and is abusive. Or the best friend who is always there and was out on the fated night with her, but who also had a prior affair with the husband. But pause, who would suspect mommy dearest...or is she mommy dearest?



    Another episode that makes me enjoy this show...despite the characters angsts...just plain old who did it...and why?moreless

    Grissom, Sophia, Greg & Sara investigate the case of a woman who is missing after a girls night out with her friend after her car is found abandoned on the highway. But the case turns into a murder investigation when her body turns up.



    An interesting case with many suspects, some people will do anything for money.



    Also Catherine & her team investigate the death of a man mauled to death by a bear & they also investigate the death of that bear.



    This case was an unusual one, with the bear being the murder weapon this time.



    Another great episode.moreless

    Actually this is one of my favorite episodes. The first case is about a woman who is missing after a girls' night out with her friend, Amy. The Crime Scene Investigator found the woman's car in the highway. The second case is about a man who was found deceased but he was not the only one, a kodiak bear was also found dead

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In this episode Grissom asks Sofia out to dinner after they have bonded over a case.

    • Goof: The men hunting for "Tippy" the bear are in a known hunting area, but they aren't wearing any safety gear.

    • Goof: When Grissom asks the zoo employee to lift his pantleg and expose the injury he got on his leg during the canned hunt, the wound is seen on the left leg. In the scene recreating the event, he tears the right pantleg.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • (Nick and Catherine are watching a video of a rhino being shot)
      Nick: They're called canned hunts. Going on all over the country.
      Catherine: I'm sorry. There's just no sport in that. It's just sick.
      Nick: Well, you got that right. Point is, you don't have to go to Africa to hunt wild game anymore. If you've got the money, Africa comes to you.
      Catherine: And they drug the animals?
      Nick: To guarantee a kill, yeah.
      Catherine: But in our case, both the hunter and the prey ended up dead.
      Nick: Something went wrong.

    • Catherine: So, Robbins confirmed that our vic was killed by the bear.
      Nick: Okay. Case closed.
      Catherine: Uh, not quite. I spoke with the Ranger. There's no way that a Kodiak bear just wanders into Nevada, so whoever smuggled him in could be charged with homicide.
      Warrick: How's that?
      Catherine: The bear could be considered a lethal weapon.

    • Catherine: I had to see with my own eyes. You're actually autopsying a bear.
      Doc Robbins: It's called a necropsy. And as the head M.E., it falls under my purview. I'm going to write an article for the journal. They love this sort of stuff.

    • Sofia (about the victim): Maybe some good samaritan offered her a lift.
      Grissom: Yeah, and evidently didn't take her where she wanted to go.

    • (after a man is found dead near the body of a bear)
      Catherine: You have a cause of death for this guy?
      Doc Robbins: I can confirm he was mauled by an angry bear.

    • Sofia: Well, when two people of the opposite sex conspire to kill one of their partners, sex or money is almost always involved. Now, Lori's friend, Amy, did say Mark was a player.
      Brass: Hello, Mrs. Robinson.
      Sofia: I had this boyfriend, back in college and when he got his first Harley let's just say we sat face-to-face and went for a ride.
      Brass: A Bentley's a lot more comfortable than a bike. (Sofia chuckles)

    • (Looking at a Bentley)
      Greg: If you added up every cent I've made in my entire life, I still wouldn't be able to afford half this car.
      Sara: Yeah, but why would you want to? The insurance premiums are sky-high. Not to mention theft, scratches.
      Greg: It's art. And I'd have every girl in the neighborhood after me.
      Sofia: Not when they saw your apartment.
      Sara: You've been in Greg's apartment?
      Sofia: Who hasn't? (they all smile)

    • Grissom: Hey, the rich are just as deviant as the poor.

    • Hodges (to Sofia): And unlike some men in this lab whose initials are Greg Sanders, she probably washes her hands.

    • Grissom: A brown hair with a follicular tag. A person's entire identity balled up in a few nanograms of matter.
      Sara: Assuming one's identity can be wholly quantified by our DNA.
      Grissom: Well, genetically, it can. We're completely programmed as soon as the sperm hits the egg.
      Sofia: So we're defined at a cellular level?
      Grissom: More or less.
      Sofia: No. Identity is the totality of our life experiences and our brain neurons process our relationship to the world and each other.
      Grissom: I stand corrected. DNA is not who we are but what we are.
      Sofia: What we are never changes. But who we are never stops changing.
      Grissom: Yeah. Whether we like it or not.

    • Sofia: You got a minute?
      Grissom: Sure. You did a nice job on the case.
      Sofia: I, uh ... I just wanted you to know that I've enjoyed working with you.
      Grissom: Well, I've enjoyed working with you as well.
      Sofia: No, it's time I made a change. I don't like the direction the lab's headed.
      Grissom: You mean Ecklie? You can't pay any attention to him.
      Sofia: No, you got a good team, but I was a supervisor. My demotion was undeserved, and every day I'm here, I'm reminded of that. (Grissom just looks at Sofia) What?
      Grissom: Well, someone once said, "What we are never changes, but who we are... never stops changing." Let's have dinner, shall we?

    • Greg: I don't mean to pry, but you want to talk about what happened with you and Ecklie?
      Sara: Not really.
      Greg: I don't know if you know this about me, but I'm a good listener.
      Sara: I blew up at Ecklie. It was very unprofessional. And very satisfying, and now I'm moving on. Thanks for asking.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The bear is called 'Tippi', an obvious reference to Natalie 'Tippi' Hedren, actress, mother of Melanie Griffith, star of The Birds, but for many years now an advocate of animal welfare and founder of an animal preserve.
