CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Season 6 Episode 11


Aired Sunday 10:00 PM Jan 05, 2006 on CBS



  • Trivia

    • The picture of the Werewolf, Grissom is looking at in his office is the picture used on the Wikipedia website in the article about werewolves and the words used by Grissom explaining the werewolf seems to be taken from the same article.

    • Goof: During Dan's interrogation, his lawyer refers to a Brent Moyer admitting to breaking the glass. The character's name is Brent Martin, not Brent Moyer

    • Goof: During the phone call, you can see it raining. Although I doubt that they've taken this into account but, if it rained that night, the finger print on the rock that was outside would have been washed away by the rain, and the roof doesn't look like it extended far enough out to cover the rock.

    • There's a full moon that can be seen in the sky when they show the shot of the house for the first time.

    • Nitpick: There is no way that a fingerprint would have surfaced that dark on such a porous item as the rock.

    • The Fatal Bullet:

      Nick identifies the fatal bullet as being made of silver. The idea that a silver bullet is one sure way of killing a werewolf is more of an invention of modern literature than part of folklore and tradition.

      Hypertrichosis, the condition Grissom mentions, is just a medical term for excessive body and facial hair growth.

  • Quotes

    • Catherine (upon finding a small mound of dirt): That ain't no ant hill... that dirt's fresh.

    • Warrick: Well this victim definitely had a lady in his life.
      Sara: That's odd... there's not a single feminine touch in this house.

    • Warrick (asking about the type of bullet used to kill Hayden): Why silver?
      Brent Martin: It seemed appropriate.

    • Hodges: And I thought Robin Williams had hairy arms.

    • Doc Robbins: You know, Gil, we're all intrigued by our nightmares when we watch freak shows, but basically we're all thinking the same thing.
      Grissom: Yeah, I'm glad they're not looking at me.

    • Mrs. Bradford (to Grissom): I was in labor for 27 hours. They didn't want to come out. Can you blame them?

    • Grissom: Hey Nick, bring her back.
      Nick: Why?
      Grissom: I want to find out why a mother would play dead.

    • Allison: I hope you help me.
      Catherine: Help you?
      Allison: Staying secret.

    • Catherine: When you and Warrick processed the crime scene did you find any evidence of a sister living there?
      Sara: No, but we weren't looking.
      Catherine: We are now.

    • Hodges: Ah, good you're here. I love an audience.
      Greg: Well don't expect any applause.

    • Nick: Lift with the knees, Super Dave, lift with the knees.
      David: Thanks, but I have done this before.

    • David (to Archie & Bobby): No, you may not touch or pet the decedent.

  • Allusions

    • Hodges: And I thought Robin Williams had hairy arms.

      Standup comedian Robin Williams has done several bits regarding his excessive body hair.

    • When Sara was inspecting the house, one of the walls was covered with butterfly paraphernalia. This may have been something taken from the Season 4 episode "Butterflied" in which Grissom stated to Dr. Lurie how he couldn't give up all that he's worked for to be with the girl (namely Sara) that had given him the chance to live his life again.

    • In the scene where the body of Hayden is about to be autopsied, three lab techs come to look at his body. Hodges says "It's not every day you get Chaka on a slab." Hodges later comments on he's going to get cranky if David comes in to see a sleestak in his lab. "Chaka" and "Sleestak" are allusions to characters in the popular Sid & Marty Kroft television series "Land of the Lost."
