  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Natalia: I guess you just... you never know when death is coming.
      Horatio: No, we don't, and that's why we shouldn't live in fear of it.

    • Ryan:You know, all this bad stuff started happening when I touched that coffin. You don't think that that's a coincidence,do you? You know, like Alissa was cursed by it and now I am?
      Calleigh: Don't be silly.I belive in science.
      Ryan: Yeah, I do too, I'm just, I'm just saying it's kinda weird.
      Calleigh: It's not weird. We're just here to pick up Alissas computer. It's right here, we'll shut it down, bring it to the lab, and have Cooper analyse the harddrive. It's very simple.
      ( The computers goes up in flames on it's own)
      Ryan: Coincidence?

    • Calleigh: You see, I don't think this place is so scary in the daytime, do you?
      Ryan: What? Nah, come on, I wasn't scared.
      Calleigh: You know I listened to the entire tape, don't you, Ryan?
      Ryan: So, there was an accomplice here?
      Calleigh (laughs): Way to change the subject.

    • Cooper (about putting together the non-melted components of the victim's computer): So I frankensteined this little contraption together you see before your eyes. It's my little monster. It's kinda fitting for the case, don't you think?
      Calleigh: Yes, it's very cute. In fact, I can't believe you put all of this together today; it took me a week to set up my TiVo.

    • Eric (after Ryan falls onto a dead body): You okay Wolfe?
      Ryan: I hate this case.
      Eric: Yeah tell me about it.

    • (Alexx examines a victim) Alexx: I can't say for sure, but it looks like blunt force trauma. Tripp: A golf club as a murder weapon? Alexx: Wouldn't be the first time.

    • Det. Tripp: You play golf Trevor?
      Trevor: Yeah, is that illegal?
      Horatio: No, but killing your ex-wife is, Trevor.

    • (A body has disappeared from the morgue, and another left in it's place)
      Alexx: Well I still don't understand how my body, put another body here and then left the morgue.

    • (A body is missing from the morgue):
      Ryan: You know, what I want to know is how Ed got up and got out of here without any one seeing him.
      Alexx: My staff isn't trained to watch the living.

    • (Ryan stares at the Santeria ritual coffin)
      Eric: Starting to believe?
      Ryan: Well ehh… there's a dead guy walking around there, I suffered temporary paralysis and then there was some spontaneous combustion over there… and all that since we brought this thing (points at coffin) here, so I would have to say yes, Santeria definitely had something to do with Alyssa's death, sure.

    • Valera: (about Santeria involvemnet in the case) Heard some one died twice today, freaky.
      Eric: Yeah, but I know somebody killed twice today.

    • Horatio: (walking out of the exploding car) Burn, baby burn!

    • (Ryan drops files)
      Alexx: (looks at him) You gonna pick that up?
      Ryan: I can't feel my hands.
      Alexx: You messin' with me?
      Ryan: No, they're completely numb. Is there something on them?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Cooper: So I frankensteined this little contraption you see before you.

      Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel by Mary Shelley first published in 1818. It tells the story of the creation of a working 'man' by the cobbling together of parts of various corpses, in the same way Cooper has cobbled together computer parts to access the damaged hard-drive.

    • Horatio: Burn baby, burn

      The lyrics Burn Baby, Burn are from the chorus of Disco Inferno is a single by The Trammps from the eponymous album. It gained much greater recognition once it was included on the soundtrack to the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever. It was also notably covered Tina Turner in 1993 and by Cyndi Lauper in 1999.
