  • Trivia

    • Goof: When they tested Abby for GSR the bracelet was on her right arm but when we flashed to when she shot Janet, she shot her with her left hand and the bracelet was on her left arm.

    • Goof: When Natalia and Alexx are discussing whether the second model jumped or was pushed, the flashbacks visualise him falling face-down, but the body is lying face-up.

    • A complainant can't just show up and present a restraining order to a person, as Natalia's ex-husband did to her. A sheriff serves restraining orders to the respondent.

    • Goof: The memory card they got from the victims phone (Nokia N90) is not, as stated, a micro SD but a RS-DV MMC which is the only kind of memory card you can use in that phone.

    • How is it that there is a Temporary Restraining Order against Natalia and how could it destroy her job? A temporary restraining order is normally only in effect for 30 days (and normally the parties are given notice so that they can argue the validity of it). As it is named, it is only Temporary so that it would not destroy Natalia's job (unless she can't survive 30 days working the lab alone). Also, judges are able to put in cavets such as, they may be in each other's presence as long as there are other law enforcement officials present - thus enabling her to continue working crime scenes (although not alone). As she is the 'rookie' that should not be a problem.

    • Goof: When Natalia and Eric return to the murder scene the last time and Eric finds the bullet hole behind the photo, he doesn't first take a photograph of the scene before he disturbs it to show the hole to Natalia. He has disturbed the scene without before and after photos.

  • Quotes

    • Calleigh:What's going on?
      Natalia: It's not good.
      Calleigh: You wanna talk about it?
      Natalia: I'm terrified of him Calleigh. He's capable of anything, and you know whats even crazier? My therapist think this is some kind of suppressed attraction.
      Calleigh:What do you think it is?
      Natalia: I don't know, but I just wanna kill him.
      Calleigh: I can understand that, but you may not want to say it out loud.
      Natalia:Thats good advice.

    • Horatio: Is there a reason Jason would want Steve dead?
      Abby: They're models they all want to kill each other.

    • Horatio: Why did you leave the scene?
      Animal Trainer: I didn't want to get involved
      Horatio: Well now you are.

    • Janet: (about her modelling agency) Our boys come to use with nothing, so we buy them clothes, we pay for their pictures, their gym memberships...
      Abby: ...veneers, liposuction.
      Janet: you have to understand that models are flakes… they run off, they get fat, they get hooked on drugs-
      Horatio: And they end up dead.
      Janet: Think what you want, I have a business to run.
      Horatio: So do I.

    • Janet: Can I go now?
      Ryan: Don't go far.
      Janet: I wouldn't dream of it. (stands up) Oh and by the way, that, uh, look is so last season. (Ryan looks down at his clothing)

    • (At the scene of the second victim)
      Alexx: Wow... Modeling is suddenly the most dangerous job in Miami.

    • (About the victim)
      Eric: Steve carry a cell phone?
      Natalia: He's a model, he probably lived on one.

    • In reality Natalia would not have to leave the crime scene. Restraining orders work both ways. It is just as illegal for her ex to enter the scene.

      Otherwise he could just sit within 100ft of her house forever.

    • Kari Wuhrer appeared in the CSI: Miami pilot playing Tiffany Langer.
