Season 4 Episode 9

One Wedding and a Funeral

Aired Friday 9:00 PM Nov 21, 2007 on CBS



  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Mac is taking a picture of the yellow paint trace on the shoe, he takes it sidewards instead of facing the sole, which does not really makes sense. However, the picture shown after he snaps the camera is a more frontal view of the shoe, which makes a lot more sense, but still is inconsistent with his position when he took it.

    • Stella: Mac, why didn't you tell me?

      Mac asks the very same question in 3x17 The Ride when she confesses him that she cut herself on the Emery Gable crime scene. Now it's vice versa.

    • 3 boxes, 3 pieces of material and 3 incomplete buildings in the puzzle; statistics tie up nicely with the 333 plot.

    • At the brawl at the wedding, a wedding guest lets out a Wilhelm scream as he is tossed over a table.

    • The line "Gives a new meaning to cold feet" has been used twice in the show so far. The first time was by Det. Maka in Season 1, episode 15 'Til Death Do We Part'.

    • Mac's first crime scene was on the Riverton Building.

    • Goof: When Mac is discussing the wedding cake in the lab, he briefly flashes back to a vision of the cake, perfectly intact on the table as it was at the beginning of the episode. However, the cake was smashed during the wedding fight before the CSIs arrived so Mac wouldn't have known what it looked like pre-fight.

    • Mac got engaged on the rooftop of a high-rise near the Chrysler Building.

    • Adam doesn't like puzzles.

  • Quotes

    • Mac: (To Stella) Could this be a case from the past? Someone holding a grudge?

    • Voice over the phone: How's it feel to be home, Detective Taylor?

    • Mac: Keep me in the loop
      Stella: Always.

    • Mac: He's using my team to get to me.
      Stella: What's going on, Mac?
      Mac: I don't know, but, I have no doubt this has something to do with the 333 caller.

    • Mac: That's the Riverton Building. That was my first crime scene.
      Adam: No way.
      Mac: This was my first New York apartment. This to scale?
      Adam: Uh, y-yeah, it is, as far as I can tell.
      Mac: This high-rise should be much taller in relation to the Chrysler Building.
      Adam: How, how could you know that?
      Mac: I got engaged on that roof. This puzzle is about my life.

    • George Foodim: I missed my kid's birthday. For nothing. If you'd seen the look in my kid's eyes when I had to leave his birthday party.
      Danny: What do you think his eyes are gonna look like when he finds out Daddy is going away for 25 to life?

    • Adam: I opened up my big mouth and then he said I could figure it out and now I'm stuck.
      Danny: All right, well, what's it worth to ya?
      Adam: Twenty-five bucks?
      Danny: Twenty-five?
      Adam: Yeah.
      Danny: Alright.

    • Flack: (About George Foodim) That is seriously the stupidest guy I've ever met.

    • Mac: Whoa, whoa. You stuffed, dressed and moved your dead friend for a bet?
      George Foodim: It was a hundred grand, man. I... I don't have it. And if I didn't pay up Toby would have gone to my dad.
      Flack: It never occurred to you, with your friend being dead and all, that just maybe the bet was off?

    • Stella: So, how's your Central Park wedding?
      Mac: Well, it's getting stranger by the minute.
      Stella: Hey, I'll take your strange and raise you.

    • Adam: (Having to solve one without the picture) I hate puzzles.

    • Stella: You put this box on my truck? I called the bomb squad, Drew.
      Drew: It's not from me, Stella. Look, every gift I sent to your office was with a card. You know, there was a theme going on, in case you hadn't noticed.

    • Flack: (After finding the dead groom) Gives new meaning to cold feet.

    • Mac: (after finding out that the groom was not involved in the wedding fight) So, how did the only guy not throwing punches end up dead?

    • Flack: (To Mac) So the Hatfields and the McCoys couldn't keep it together long enough to merge the family fortunes...

    • (Stella and Lindsay walk around a corner.)
      Lindsay: I hate to state the obvious, but there is no building.

    • Adam: (enters room) What are you so happy about?
      Danny: I figured out what killed my groom.
      Adam: Was it the mother-in-law?
      Danny: Hahaha, no! It was a missing wedding gift.

    • George: I told you...
      Flack: Ya, 15 shots of tequila, I heard you.

    • Flack: So the neighbours were very helpful. They saw nothing, heard nothing and know nothing.

    • (Showing Danny and Sheldon the bloody cell phone.)
      Sid: My first dead ringer (Danny snickers).

  • Allusions

    • Flack: So the Hatfields and the McCoys couldn't keep it together long enough to merge the family fortunes...

      Flack, when he arrives at the scene and is discussing the case with Mac, makes a reference to the Hatfields and McCoys. The Hatfields and McCoys are the U.S. version of the Montagues and Capulets (from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet). They are two feuding families, from the nineteenth century, from the West Virginia/Kentucky border river area.

    • Title: One Wedding and a Funeral.
