  • Mac and the team investigate a series of murders that seem to be reenactments murder scenarios from the classic board game Clue.

    "Clue: SI" is not a bad episode but at the same time it is not one of the better episodes of the season. I played Clue a lot as a kid and think it's one of the all time classic board games. However I'm sure it worked well here. I just had a little trouble with the fact that the killer was able to pull of the murders with such relative ease. Especially tracking down the vintage revolver. I know it's not too difficult to track down such things in the internet age, but it just seemed to contrived for me that he did so easily. The part of the story considering that deals with Mac's personal struggles is getting to be a liability. I find it hard to believe that a guy like Mac Taylor still refuses to acknowledge his physical and psychological scars. "CSI: NY" is definitely still worth watching. I will tune in for the next episode and you should too!moreless
  • the crime drama

    the storyline was awesome the game of clue made it very interesting to watch what didn't was the christine thing, its a crime drama not a soap opera love affair. It made me sick, ruined the show
  • Music

    I know they have reformatted the musical aspects of the show. We hear more music when they are investigating and during lab work ups. I am enjoying the beautiful piano music tonight!

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (35)

    • Flack: Her classmate, Alexa Holdman, discovered her when she was practicing one of those twirly things.
      Mac: A pirouette?
      Flack: Like I said, a twirly thing.

    • Hawkes: Petechial hemorrhaging. C.O.D.'s most likely asphyxiation.
      Flack: You needed an exam for that? She was hung up by a rope.
      Jo: We're not sure the rope killed her.

    • Flack: All right, I may not be the owner of a wonderful white lab coat, but it sounds to me like you're saying somebody strangled her, then strung her up.
      Mac: Why hang somebody who's already dead?

    • Mac: No one else was in the... (Unable to remember the word) ...the, uh...
      Flack: Building? No.

    • Christine Whitney: I'm sorry I didn't... I didn't return your calls. I didn't know what to say.
      Mac: I understand why you're angry with me, Christine.
      Christine Whitney: I'm not angry. Um... hurt, uh, confused... a little embarrassed. I realized I'd been acting like a teenage girl, you know? Butterflies
      in my stomach 'cause I'm so excited to see you, fighting the urge to text message every minute... making a lot more of this than... than what it is, so I'm going to take a step back.
      Mac: No, I don't want you to do that.

    • Christine Whitney: Why don't you tell me what's wrong? Why are you shutting me out of whatever it is that you're going through?
      Mac: That's not what I'm doing. This isn't... about us.
      Christine Whitney: Oh. Oh, okay. I get it. It's none of my business.
      Mac: That's not what I'm saying.
      Christine Whitney: Mac, the problem is that you are not saying anything.

    • Mac: You... you make me very happy. I'm just... struggling with...
      Christine Whitney: You can tell me. You know, all those nights that I sat by your bedside in the hospital, it wasn't because I felt some obligation. I was where I wanted to be. I sat there day after day, praying... because I wanted... I needed you to recover. Mac, you can trust me.
      Mac: I can't... I can't remember things.

    • Christine Whitney: Why didn't you share this with me, Mac? Never mind. I asked a question I already know the answer to. You know, one of the most endearing things about you is your pride. But it's also your weakness. And I... I have to decide if I can live with that.

    • Sid: A dancer, more than any other human being, dies two deaths. Martha Graham said that.

    • Hawkes: Hey, never get Lucy a cell phone.
      Danny: She's only five, Doc.
      Hawkes: I mean, never ever. I went through Ellen White's cell. There were 500 texts from this week alone.
      Danny: Wow. Anything out of the ordinary?
      Hawkes: No, just a lot of IMHOs and FTWs.

    • Adam: Messer, you got to do me a favor and tell your wife to back off, okay? 'Cause I didn't do it. Okay, and I don't like being accused of things I didn't do when I didn't do it because I didn't do it, okay?
      Danny: That make any sense to you?
      Hawkes: Yeah, he didn't do it.

    • Danny: Hey, babe, what'd you do to Adam?
      Lindsay: (To Danny and Hawkes, revealing she's been pranked as she has blue ink ring around her eyes) Don't think that you two aren't suspects.

    • Lindsay: I think I'm a pretty nice person. Levelheaded, patient, as is evidenced by the man I've taken as my husband.
      Hawkes: God knows how you do it.

    • Lindsay: (After being pranked) Somebody decided: hey, she's an easy target. Let's play lab prank on Lindsay because she's... what, weak? (Chuckles) Whoever did this is going down.

    • Mac: (To Lindsay, who has been pranked into getting blue ink rings around her eyes) That brings out the color in your eyes.

    • Jamie Lovato: You like shooting young girls with old guns?
      Sam Cross: I never shot anybody.
      Flack: Of course not. You're a good guy. Let's see. Sam Cross, 25 years old. Highlights include: assault, armed robbery and burglary. So, tell me, what made you graduate to murder?

    • Sam Cross: I'm just a stickup guy. I never graduated to nothing.
      Jamie Lovato: I can't imagine why.

    • Sam Cross: That's not even my gun... I found the damn thing.
      Jamie Lovato: That's the lame-ass story you're gonna go with?

    • Sam Cross: It was just... lying there. Lying.
      Jamie Lovato: That's an interesting word choice.
      Sam Cross: Yeah, well, you know what? A free piece comes your way and you take it.

    • Jo: (To Lindsay) Remind me never to get on your bad side.

    • Christine Whitney: It meant a lot, you, um, opening up to me last night.
      Mac: I wish it wasn't so hard for me.
      Christine Whitney: Yeah, I know that. But I want you to always feel you can come to me, be honest with me, no matter how hard it is. I'm tougher than you think.
      Mac: I know how tough you are.
      Christine Whitney: I want to help you, Mac.

    • Adam: Tracked the seller of the antique revolver, and it wasn't easy because it was made back when the dinosaurs were roaming the earth.

    • Adam: After some masterful Internet sleuthing by moi, I was able to track down the gun to the seller.

    • Mac: Someone's playing a game with us. Mrs. White. Conservatory. With a rope.
      Lindsay: Lisa Weston had red hair, and she was killed in Hell's Kitchen with a revolver.
      Jo: Mrs. Scarlet in the kitchen with the revolver.
      Lindsay: Holy crap.
      Mac: It's Clue.

    • Mac: Six suspects. Nine rooms. Six murder weapons. 324 possibilities to deduce the killer.

    • Danny: Seriously, babe, how long you planning on wearing those sunglasses?
      Lindsay: Till I don't look like I'm a member of the Blue Man Group.

    • Danny: (To Lindsay, discussing who might have pranked her) Probably could take Mac out of the equation because, you know, joke is not really a part of his vocabulary.

    • Danny: (To Lindsay, who's been pranked) Think I would pull that kind of prank on... on my own wife?

    • Danny: How does a whisker from a giant snow leopard in the Central Park Zoo end up on a dead body halfway across town?
      Robby Hull: I'm the primary zookeeper for the snow leopards.
      Danny: So, does anyone else interact with them?
      Robby Hull: They can be temperamental animals. Anybody gets in that cage without proper training, that's when limbs start getting ripped off.

    • Flack: Mac Taylor in the lounge with the Glock.
      Jamie Lovato: You just couldn't help yourself, could you?

    • Steve Davis: I need to see Dr. Emerson.
      Flack: Oh, you will, in court behind a stand as she's testifying against you for murdering three of her patients and nearly killing her fiance.

    • Steve Davis: My mother loves her vacation home, and my father loves his French whores. They don't... they don't love me.

    • (Danny arrives to the lab with a bouquet of red roses)
      Lindsay: You got some hot date I don't know about?
      Danny: Yeah, taking my wife out to dinner tonight.
      Lindsay: Oh, what's the occasion?
      Danny: You don't need an occasion to take your wife out to dinner, do you?
      Lindsay: It was you. I knew it. I said it was you.
      Danny: Adam was supposed to be in Ballistics, not you.

    • Lindsay: So it was Messer in Ballistics.
      Danny: With methylene blue. Can you forgive me?
      Lindsay: It's almost gone. This better be some dinner.

    • Mac: I have something I need to say to you, and I didn't want it to wait. I love you, Christine (She doesn't reply) Aren't you gonna...?
      (They kiss)
