Dr. Werner Klein
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler
Det. Jake Berkeley
(after accidentally telling Stetler that Calleigh and Jake are dating Eric tries to call her, but only reaches her voice mail)
Eric: Calleigh, hey. It's Delko. I think I might have just put you in a jam. Give me a call back when you get the message, all right?
(after witnessing Eric and Natalia 'hugging', but Eric was really putting her shoulder back into place)
Rick Stetler: Delko.
Eric: (chuckles) Stetler. What are you sniffing around about?
Rick Stetler: Horatio's got me working to supersede a court order, reclaim your frozen football star's body.
Eric: Working with us for a change.
Rick Stetler: You are aware of the pending new rules regarding fraternization among officers, aren't you?
Eric: You mean 'new' as in different after you and Yelena Salas?
Rick Stetler: Things have changed. The county's caving to the state's pressure on the issue of sexual harassment litigation.
Eric: You know, that's interesting.
Rick Stetler: The department's redefining its policies on fraternization of officers. You would be best served sharing that with the others, in the lab.
Eric: Listen, Stetler, if you have something to say to CSI Duquesne or Detective Berkeley, you'd best be served telling them yourself.
Rick Stetler: Duquesne and Berkeley? I was talking about you and Boa Vista. But, thank you.
Jake: I can't work this case.
Jake: Because you're on it.
Calleigh: (chuckles) What are you talking about?
Jake: I've just been informed of pending changes in department policy.
Calleigh: Are you saying that we can't work a crime scene together because we've been seeing each other?
Jake: More like we can't work a crime scene because we may have a falling out and things get ugly and job performance may suffer.
Calleigh: You sound like you're a firm believer.
Jake: No. I just got Rick Stetler breathing down my neck.
Calleigh: How's Rick Stetler know anything about us?
Jake: I don't know. Listen, I think we should just take a step back. Let things cool down a little bit, okay?
Calleigh: Okay. (walks away)
Calleigh: How does Rick Stetler have even the faintest idea of what's going on in my personal life?
Eric: It was an accident. I left you a message. I called you.
Calleigh: I didn't get it.
Eric: Look, I never intended for this to happen, okay? I don't like the situation with Jake but I wouldn't rat you out. You know that.
Calleigh: Let's just work the case.
Eric: What's the matter?
Natalia: I think my shoulder's out.
Eric: Oh, boy. Okay, look. You gotta go see a doctor.
Horatio: Hm, no I can't. This is gonna go on my record and then it's gonna get out that I can't shoot a shotgun.
Eric: Well, it's not going back in on its own.
Natalia: Okay, well, can you do it for me? Please.
Eric: All right. All right, just relax, okay?
Alexx: So we're looking at a two-part murder. Rita started the process.
Horatio: And somebody else finished it.
Horatio: Okay. So, let me ask you this. If you didn't hire somebody to kill him, who called you from the crime scene?
Elissa McClain: Martin. Doug's manager called.
Horatio: Why would he do that?
Elissa McClain: To tell me what happened. He wanted me back at the house before the police or the press got there, 'cause everybody thinks that Doug and I are still together.
Horatio: Was he there when you arrived?
Elissa McClain: No. Do you think he killed Doug?
Horatio: Do you?
Wendy: Okay. So I didn't exactly tell you everything.
Calleigh: That is the understatement of the year, Miss Legassic.
Wendy: I did call Mr. McClain for my article.
Calleigh: But you conveniently left out the part where you had the murder recorded.
Wendy: I was taping the conversation so I wouldn't miss anything. At the time, I wasn't even sure what I was hearing.
Calleigh: What exactly did you hear?
Wendy: I can't say. I signed a non-disclosure agreement with the TV station. It's legally binding.
Calleigh: So are handcuffs. It's your choice, Wendy.
Wendy: He was literally talking to me one second and gone the next. I kept recording until my cell battery ran out.
Calleigh: And so your first instinct, after you found out he was killed, was to sell the tape.
Wendy: I'm not a monster, Officer. I just wanted to get out of the obituary business.
Calleigh: (sighs) You thought the recording would make you a reporter at WETX. I've got an exclusive for you, Wendy. That tape is never gonna make it to TV. A judge has issued a warrant. I'm confiscating it and I'm arresting you for obstruction of justice. Your journalism career died with Doug McClain. You can write an obituary for it.
Eric: I think you got tired of climbing through windows, Miss Sullivan. I think you got tired of being Doug's second choice.
Rita Sullivan: Being Doug McClain's second choice was more than any girl could ask for.
Eric: Except being his first.
Eric: You're running the double-sided tape from Doug McClain's window sill?
Valera: Yeah. I already did. You had silk fibers on one side. But even better, epithelials on the other.
Eric: And what would cause that?
Valera: You're such a guy. Remember J. Lo's green Versace dress? What do you think held that up?
Eric: Double-sided adhesive?
Valera: This is wardrobe tape.
Frank: (about Doug) So he sold you three championship rings and an autographed team ball willingly?
Theo Knight: Well, his manager did. Martin Wilson? He gave me a good price. I had to have it.
Horatio: You had to have it? You were online within hours of his murder selling it, Theo.
Theo Knight: Look I was gonna add it to my collection here but, when one of these legends dies, collectors go into a frenzy.
Frank: Right. News breaks, your 100K investment climbs up to seven figures. Is that right?
Theo Knight: I guess I'm a lucky guy.
Horatio: Yes, but, not for long.
Natalia: Well, I'm trying to track down Doug McClain's stolen memorabilia off the internet.
Eric: Yeah, how many sites have you been to?
Natalia: Fourteen. So far.
Eric: (laughs) You know how many sites there are, right?
Eric: (laughs) Wait a minute, go back. There's some football stuff there. Championship rings, that them?
Natalia: Looks like it. Look, championship years, '92, '93 and '95.
Eric: Yeah. And there's the football right there.
Natalia: Oh, ye of little faith.
Calleigh: According to the phone records, you were the last person to speak to Doug McClain before he was killed.
Wendy: The closest I got to him was the phone. I was just updating his obituary.
Calleigh: I'm sorry?
Wendy: Newspapers like to be prepared for an unexpected death. We have obituaries of people still alive on file, so when they pass, we're ready to print.
Calleigh: That is morbid. So I take it that you're a reporter.
Wendy: My boss gave me a list of names and told me to update them.
Calleigh: And people will just talk to you?
Wendy: You figure out ways to get them to open up. Doug was a jock. It's pretty obvious what part of the ego you have to stroke.
Alexx: (on the phone, discussing Doug's body being frozen) Doug McClain's wife presented a signed court order, Horatio.
Horatio: Signed by who?
Alexx: Judge Porterson. Miami's leading advocate of progressive science.
Horatio: You mean, leading advocate of science fiction.
Alexx: It's gonna take a hearing before I can get Doug under my knife. By then, we could lose everything.
Horatio: Okay. Here's what we do. Shift to Plan B.
Alexx: I'm on my way to Pre Core now. I'll let you know.
Calleigh: You know, I knew that you liked football but I wasn't aware that you were so into it.
Jake: Well, you need your mornings. I need my Sunday afternoons.
Jake: You find anything, CSI Duquesne?
Calleigh: Only smudges, Detective Berkeley.
Jake: I didn't hear you leave this morning.
Calleigh: Well, you know, a girl's gotta keep some mystery.
Jake: The victim's wife and that character want the body.
Alexx: For what?
Alexx: They wanna freeze him?
Jake; That's what they said.
Horatio: Alexx, I don't see any defensive wounds.
Alexx: It doesn't make sense. Doug McClain was one of the best athletes of his time. A man like this would never go down without a fight.
Horatio: 'Til today.
Wendy Legassic: I'm not a monster, Officer. I just wanted to get out of the obituary business.
Calleigh: You thought the recording would make you a reporter at WETX. I've got an exclusive for you, Wendy. That tape is never gonna make it to TV. A judge has issued a warrant, I'm confiscating it, and I'm arresting you for obstruction of justice. Your journalism career died with Doug McClain. You can write an obituary for it.
Elissa McClain: I didn't wanna go there. I didn't want to see Doug like that. But Martin, Doug's manager, he insisted. He wanted me to play the part of the grieving widow.
Horatio: So you kept up appearances.
Elissa McClain: I went back to the house. I found him there. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. (sighs) I called Pre Core.
Horatio: Which is when you realized he was still alive.
Elissa McClain: I heard him groan. It was, it was so soft, I thought I imagined it. I didn't know what to do, I...Martin wanted to protect the estate, his reputation. But, I just couldn't pretend anymore. I mean, the way Doug was living his life, he was, (sighs) he was depreciating every day. And he was dragging me and our daughter with him. I, uh, uh, he was just gonna keep screwing up until everything just came crashing down around us.
Horatio: He was worth more to you dead than alive. Is that what you're telling me?
Elissa McClain: So I pulled out the knife. (flashback) And like that, it was over. He bled to death. (flashback) Pre Core takes their van for one lap around the block. Arrive shortly after you do. And I play my role one last time.
Horatio: Mrs. McClain, I can assure you that the next several years are gonna be very real.
