Detective Jessica Angell
Goof: Colin Clark supposedly contracted the schistosoma worms while "scouting locations for a new club" in Brazil. But the infection by schistosoma worms is associated with poverty-stricken areas, with no water and sewage treatment systems - not really the kind of place he'd be visiting.
Goof: the water in the tub moves as they watch the dead body - water in tub with dead body shouldn't move!
In this episode we learn the news that the FBI sets DNA protocols for the New York crime lab to observe. However, in the course of the preceding seasons we've seen how rather degraded samples were enough evidence. Mac himself considered an admissible evidence for the 333 case the t-shirt he got in his luggage, even though that suitcase could have been handled by anyone before being returned to him, clearly compromising the chain of custody.
Mac tells Hawkes that since the evidence he ordered Adam to process doesn't follow FBI and DNA protocol, he can't take it to the Court because in that case he'd have no option but throwing Adam out. However, Adam couldn't know that Hawkes was connected to the case and moreover, Sheldon ordered him to run the test before he was removed from the case.
Even though Anna Belknap is pregnant, Lindsay can be seen wearing heels in this episode.
Mac believes in fate but not in coincidences. It sounds like a contradiction.
The CSIs first theory on Laurel Downs's death was that she bled off from the cuts made by the embedded ornament stones in the gown. Seeing as a bride comes in contact with many people during the wedding, people to embrace, to closely dance with and so... isn't it a bit of a too dangerous dress to wear?
The worm parasite depicted in this episode it called schistosoma. It actually gets harder to get rid of it than simply bleed it away. And the worms shown weren't a male and a female: they looked like two females since there's a significant difference between both genders (the male is usually smaller and has a different shape).
Lindsay: I've got something we can use in court. I was able to sequence the worm DNA. The exact genus and species is from Brazil. Now this might
be just a coincidence, but Colin Clark was in Brazil a month ago, scouting locations for a new club.
Stella: Some women dream their whole lives about that killer dress.
(After chasing and tackling a suspect)
Angell: Stupid idiot! Is that redundant?
Flack: Not with this guy, no.
Sid: (After examining Eleanor's body) I knew her. She played in the subway. She had a beautiful voice.
Stella: Still, if Laurel hadn't seen that necklace on Eleanor's neck and followed her into the store, we might never have found our killer.
Mac: Sounds like fate to me.
Colin Clark: You'd never be able to pin those vics on me.
Stella: You're dead wrong about that.
Hawkes: Kara needed me. She tried to reach out. And when she did, I wasn't there. No. I wasn't there for her.
Mac: Sheldon we are gonna get this guy.
Hawkes: What he did to her, it broke me. I could fix the cuts and the bruises but I couldn't change what happened. And I tried, Mac. I tried.
Stella: Hawkes should have followed proper protocol but he stepped over the line because somebody he loved got hurt by this guy.
Mac: Oh c'mon, you know I know that.
Stella: I know. Just... I want you to hold on for a second. You gotta realize that people can't just turn off their emotions when something horrible happens.
Mac: That's exactly why I pulled him off this case.
Hawkes: So what do you want me to do? Just ignore the fact that Colin's sweat is on our murdered victim's clothes?
Mac: The reason we follow FBI DNA protocol is to ensure an unquestionable conviction.
Hawkes: So we sit in here waiting for that perfect scientific connection while Colin could be out there raping and killing another innocent victim? I don't know about you, Mac but I can't live with that.
(About her rape)
Kara: You can train yourself to forget.
(About Kara's rape)
Hawkes: I hate that this happened to her.
Stella: It happened to both of you, Hawkes.
Hawkes: Maybe. But I wasn't the one who moved out.
Lindsay: Is there such a thing as a warrant for worms?
Danny: Eleanor's rape report says that the rapist stole jewelery from her.
Stella: So did the necklace around Laurel Downs' neck belong to Laurel Downs?
Mac: Where were you yesterday morning?
Trey Fager: Grand Central, got huh… let's see... a thousand alibis?
Mac: We'll check on that. Don't take any out of town gigs.
Lindsay: How does a worm from Brazil end up in a bathtub in Brooklyn?
Mac: Worms are like humans. You wanna know exactly where they came from, you can sequence their DNA.
Lindsay: We are talking wormtopsy.
(After Sid mentions some random trivia about coincidences)
Danny: Wow. You've been hanging out with Lindsay, Sid?
Danny: Eleanor Ravelle's blood was in the cuts of Laurel Downs' hand?
Sid: Any way Laurel could have killed Eleanor, dumped her in the bathtub, then jogged over to the wedding dress sell?
Danny: No, I mean crime scenes are in opposite sides of town, TODs are much too close together.
Sheldon: And ex girlfriend of mine was attacked.
Mac: You've already processed evidence in this case that Court could call into question.
Hawkes: You pulling me?
Stella: It is a really strange coincidence that we recover two victims within 24 hours that they were both raped by the same man.
Mac: You sure it's the same guy and not a copycat?
Sheldon: These marks, that brutality... you can't copy that. This guy is back. Only this time he didn't just keep the victim quiet: he killed her.
Stella: She was not here for the running of the gowns. She was in the middle of a race.
Danny: I guess it was a sale she couldn't pass by?
Flack:So our vic's Laurel Downs. She's 28 years old. Found her id couple of power bars, (Checks out the vic's belongings) No cash, no credit cards.
Danny: Who would come to a sale without any money?
Danny: I know running of the bulls is dangerous but... running for the gowns?

Trey: Hendrix with a little Bob Johnson on the side.
Angell: Way off.
Trey: (looking from her to Mac)Muddy Waters?

Lindsay: Coincidences happen. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson they both died on the same day exactly 50 years after signing the Declaration of Independence.
John Adams (October 30, 1735 – July 4, 1826) was the second President of the United States (1797–1801).
Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826) was the third President of the United States (1801–1809).
Sid: Stranger things have been known to happen. Mark Twain was born on the day Halley Comet first appeared. He died on its next appear 75 years later.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910) was an American author who wrote under the pen name Mark Twain. His best well known work are the series of novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
