    Catherine: Watch it wiggle see it jiggle. I get it.

    Said as they are about to test their theory of electrocution with 'gelatine man'. These words are an allusion to the text of an advert for Jello from the 1980s. (edit) The name of the character who is Sherlock in the episode is Denis Kingsley. This is a nod to Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, who had five children, two of whom were named Denis and Kingsley. (edit) The method in which the murder weapon was concealed closely parallels the Holmes story "The Problem of Thor Bridge" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, first published in 1922. (edit) Greg: 7% solution of cocaine; morphine
    In the Holmes stories, Sherlock used a 7% solution of cocaine, during times of boredom.

    The 7% Solution was later a movie in the 1970's, that dealt with Holmes's growing addiction to cocaine, and his treatment at the hands of Sigmund Freud.

    And, in one of the stories, Holmes was found, by Watson, to be in an opium den, while in disguise. Whether or not he was taking opium is up for debate. (edit) Grissom et al: n/a Throughout the episode, there were many references to the various items relating to Sherlock Holmes. Among the items of interest are: The violin, the Deerstalker hat, the famous Meerschaum pipe, the 19th century syringe, the Persian slipper with tobacco in the toe.

    Other Holmes references include mention of Reichenbach Falls, where Holmes found Professor Moriatry and met his (supposed) death. (edit)
