CSI: Miami

Season 7 Episode 1


Aired Sunday 10:00 PM Sep 22, 2008 on CBS



  • Trivia

    • While explaining how he helped fake Horatio's death, Ryan states that the medical examiner was an ATF plant. But Dr. Wellner was actually the fill-in medical examiner in the previous episode, before Horatio had even met Agent Caldwell and concocted the fake shooting.

    • Jose Zuniga who plays Juan Ortega in this episode, plays Detective Cavaliere on CSI, and has played a Detective on the original CSI since the forth season. Which is kind of ironic, because in this episode he plays a hard criminal, then on CSI, he puts away hard criminals. He also appears in an episode of CSI: Miami's first season playing Carl Galaz.

    • Calleigh is the only one on the team that doesn't see Horatio alive. Ryan knows the plan and Eric meets with Horatio but Calleigh doesn't.

    • $10,000,000 in $100 bills (the highest U.S. denomination) would require 100,000 bills and weigh approximately 220 pounds (100 Kg). There is no way that that much money would fit into a small briefcase and no way that Yelina could lift it on her own. Ironcially, Gil Grissom on CSI pointed out the same error to a crooked casino owner in the episode Suckers. Also, in CSI New York Detective Mac Taylor mentioned the weight of money too. In the latest episode, 5x01 Veritas, Mac said, The depths of the tire impressions on the car...would have been much deeper if there was two million dollars in that vehicle.

  • Quotes

    • Ortega: Taken down by a dead man

    • Eric: (about Ron's body) We searched everywhere. There's still no body.
      Horatio: We got to keep looking, Eric.
      Eric: I'm with you, H, what do you want to do?
      Horatio: Whatever it takes, we'll find him.
      Eric: You and me?
      Horatio: You and me, Eric.
      Eric: This never ends, does it?
      Horatio: And it never will.

    • Eric: (about the secret operation) Why Wolfe? Why didn't you come to me?
      Horatio: Eric, you were the obvious choice, and there was a chance this was going to fail. I didn't want that for you.

    • (Calleigh and Eric call the number on suspect's phone)
      Ryan: This is Wolfe. Hello?
      (Sees his number on computer screen)
      Calleigh: Ryan.
      Eric: (heated) It all makes sense now. How you got there so fast, why you released the body...
      Ryan: Eric. I want you relax 'cause this isn't how it looks.
      Calleigh: Really? 'Cause it looks like you and Caldwell are responsible for Horatio's murder.
      Ryan: (angry) Really? 'Cause you're wrong.

    • Calleigh: So, what happens now?
      Jake: Well, ATF will send me somewhere, put me on ice for a while, six months to year.
      Calleigh: And there's no guarantee?
      Jake: No, there's never a guarantee. (pause) I was kinda hoping you would wait.
      Calleigh : I feel like the last couple of months all I've been doing is waiting. It's terrifying, I mean, I wonder every day if I would see you again, if something happens to you, if I would know about it. I can't live like that.

    • Calleigh: How did you get out without being noticed.
      Jake: I didn't. They are looking for me right now and if they found me, I'm dead.
      Calleigh: That's an incredible sacrifice to make for the case.
      Jake: I didn't do it for the case, Calleigh. I did it for you.
      Calleigh: Thank you.

    • Frank: Let's find out who did this, Calleigh.
      Calleigh: As long as we are breathing, Frank.

    • Calleigh: I think I know who shot Horatio.
