  • Spoilers inside, but generally a wonderful episode. Greatly plotted, funny quotes, and witty scenes. Also interesting cases.

    The Beginning:

    A laundry facility is bustling, amazing machines whirring and lifting up bags, and suddenly? A body flops out, half naked. This was a wonderful beginning to the episode, because it is just such a random way to find a body. I mean really? You put the sheets in the facility to be cleaned. Not to find a body. The Cases:

    Danny’s case turns out to be nothing but a misdemeanour. And despite what Mac tells him, he continues with the case. He feels there is something more to it, but in fact there isn’t. it is just a misdemeanor. Personally, I don’t care what Mac says, I loved the fact that Danny went through with the case. Omar was sweet, despite the fact that he put the vic the homeless guy in jail, we find out he did it to give him a nice warm place to sleep. Very sweet indeed. And Danny seemed to take the sweetness and do it as well. He wanted to talk for this homeless guy. Then there was Mac’s case which was the body that was found in the laundry. This is a case of the elite sticking together and getting away with what they wanted. It was great to see that justice was served, but at the same time you felt bad for Costas, I mean his one true love was killed. Yes he’s killed his friend’s love in the past, but he didn’t have to take his revenge by killing Costas’ love. It was really wicked and disturbing to see the flashback with the killer watching and just waiting for them to wake up, so he could see Costas’ reaction.



    Favorite Scene:

    Though I am a D/L Fan, I must say I thought it was cute how jealous/annoyed Danny was when Omar Lilly decided to flirt with Aiden. It seems its Danny’s month, (or two).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: There are actually three 59th street subway stations in Manhattan: Columbus Circle (the one in this episode), Fifth Avenue, and Lexington Avenue. The sign at the entrance would have specified which one it was. In addition, they put the A, B, C, and D lines on the sign, but they neglected to even mention the 1 and 9.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Hawkes: (giving the results of his autopsy to Stella) However, Jenny Lee had a very unsual abdominal condition. A fizzy navel!

    • Danny: Check you out ! You know, you're lucky you and I work together...
      Aiden: You know, you're cute Messer, but I'm way out of your league.

    • Stella: What do you do when you can't sleep?
      Mac: Work.
      Stella: (shakes head) No, I mean what do normal people do when they can't sleep?
      (Mac just stares at her).
      Stella: They flip the pillow to the cool side.
      (Mac and Stella flip mattress, revealing a wet spot on the mattress)
      Stella: Bleach city. I'm getting frustrated.
      (Mac rips open the mattress with a knife, revealing blood on the inner springs).
      Mac: Don't get mad, get even.

    • Tom Martin: There are a lot of men in this country who look like me. Average.
      Mac: Don't sell yourself short. You're unique. Or at least your blood is.

    • Flack: What do you need roofies for, anyway?
      Tony Garcia: I have a sleep disorder.
      Flack: You provide security. It's your job to stay awake.

    • Tom Martin: Your tactics don't frighten me.
      Mac: It's not my tactics you need to worry about; it's my results.

    • Mac: We follow the book on this one. Chapter and verse.

    • Robert Costa: I'm as American as you are. Andover, Columbia undergrad, and a Master's from Yale.
      Flack: Yeah? Guess what? Where I come from still makes you a foreigner.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Mac: I love the smell of a cover-up in the afternoon.

      This is an alteration of Robert Duvall's famous line from Apocalypse Now. The original line is, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Smells like victory."

    • Chad Willingham: Check out what J. Lo sleeps on.

      Singer/actress/designer Jennifer Lopez is reputed to be very demanding and reportedly she insists on sleeping on fancy sheets with an 800-thread count, like the ones the female murder victim in this episode was wrapped in.

    • Flack: It must be Groundhog Day for Robert Costa.

      This is a reference to the 1993 movie, Groundhog Day, in which Bill Murray relives the same day, over and over again.

    • Mac: Don't get mad. Get even.

      This is a direct quote from American statesperson Robert Kennedy.
