The calendar Sheldon moves at the cab company to view the hole in the wall made by an angry cabby has a photo of the cheerleaders from the episode's other subplot.
Goof: Danny's apartment (especially the entrance hall) is noticeably different than the one in 3x18 Sleight Out of Hand. Also, the pool table is nowhere to be seen.
There are more than a million pigeons in New York. Also, the city's population of Argentinian parrots escaped from a box that was manipulated by an airport worker.
Sid likes fencing.
Goof: When the basketball game victim falls dead to the ground, his shirt is pushed upwards, showing part of his belly. However, when the emergency workers arrive, the shirt has been stretched down to his jeans.
Despite Mac wanted to know Reed for Claire's sake and Reed seemed open to the idea, it looks like it hasn't been that way. Reed reappears for professional reasons, and it sounds like they don't have any kind of personal relationship going on. Not being related under normal parameters, they are kinda forced to get along when life brings them close again.
It is not likely that Lindsay would grab a cab either being aware of the serial killer story. A short walk would have led her to the next subway station which wouldn't have meant that much trouble since she was wet already.
Goof: The 3rd Street Station that Lindsay mentions to be closed doesn't exist.
It is not likely that Reed would get in a taxi after having been chasing the taxi driver serial killer story.
Despite Mac gave Reed his cell phone number for private reasons, Reed is using that personal information against Mac, violating Mac's trust and also professional standards at work about his source.
Goof: Lindsay is going through the cheerleaders' photos to find a biometric match of the heavier woman, and she picks one of a blonde cheerleader. As she is about to scan it, a close up of a woman wearing big sunglasses can be seen. However, when the scan is done, it is revealed as the original blonde cheerleader photo.
Goof: The AED scene at the basketball game has several problems with it. Firstly, the emergency workers don't cut off the victim's shirt to get the paddles on. (Skin contact is needed for them to be used properly.) Secondly, they don't position one paddle on his upper left and one on his lower right chest sections. (This is done to make sure the current flows correctly to the heart.) Thirdly, the workers start the procedure as Danny and Flack leave their seats and end it as they arrive on the court, meaning they gave up after only a minute or so at best. Usually, an emergency worker would keep CPR/AED going until EMS arrives and takes the victim away. (To stop before EMS arrives would open the stadium up to a serious abandonment lawsuit.)
Goof: Paige Lopez's incident report misspells connection as conection.
Lindsay: Need help picking the right shade?
Danny: Ha, ha, ha, that's just it. Unless the make-up counter at Bloomie's is selling mood lipstick, this partial print we got from the vic's mouth seems to have changed color. It started out pink.
Lindsay: And now it's amber.
Danny: Means the efflorescent crystalline residue we're looking at is atropine trace.
Lindsay: Well, that explains the color shift. So which cheerleader wore it?
Danny: And if she had poison on her lips, why isn't she dead too?
Lindsay: Any stomach contents?
Sid: Like you wouldn't believe. At least two hotdogs, popcorn, nachos, peanuts, an ice-cream sandwich and almost a full liter of beer.
Danny: I'm surprised he could get out of his seat!
Sid: What's even more surprising is the traces of phentermine I also found in his bloodstream.
Lindsay: Wait, time-out, Scott was taking an appetite suppressant?
Sid: Clearly a failure in this case, but someone still found him lovable!
Danny: Lip prints.
Sid: Twelve to be exact. I lifted them from both cheeks, the neck and the forehead. In various shades, from Candy Kitten to Sangria Sunset.
Lindsay: Twelve girls on the cheerleading squad.
Danny: I'm surprised he didn't kick the bucket from altitude sickness with these seats!
Lindsay: That or the nachos...
(Danny and Flack are at the basketball game)
Flack: (talking about the guy winning $1 million) Never gonna happen!
Danny: Why, you think you could do it?
Flack: You're kidding me? Boom, nothing but net, baby!
(After the guy's name has been drawn)
Danny: Oh, I think he can do it!
Flack: No, he can't!
Danny: Wanna make a little wager?
Flack: 50 bucks?
Danny: I hate to take a colleague's money but for you, I'll be happy to make the exception! Come on!
(While Danny, Lindsay, and Don are questioning the cheerleader)
Flack: Crime of passion?
Lindsay: Crime of patience.
Mac: Today I got a call from the widow of Ben Melvoy.
Stella: The attorney from Jersey.
Mac: They had a toddler and a newborn. They were two weeks away from celebrating their tenth anniversary. Then he gets in the wrong cab.
Stella: My God.
Mac: But you know what hit me the hardest? She couldn't have been sweeter; held it together; didn't even cry. All she asked me to do was stop this killer from hurting somebody else. In spite of all the heartache, bloodshed, he's causing all I could really offer her was an apology. Are we gonna get this guy?
Stella: We have to. We have to.
(Danny is on the phone with Lindsay)
Danny: Hey, where are you?
Lindsay: I'm taking a rain walk, it's a Montana thing, you wouldn't understand.
Danny: Yeah, maybe I would. Maybe there's a lot of things that... that I understand now. How about that?
Lindsay: Yeah, like what?
Danny: How sorry I am for pushing you away.
Lindsay: Danny, I tried to give you your space but I don't know how much longer I can feel alone. It's messing with my work. It's breaking my heart.
Danny: I know, no; I know, I do. I swear to God it won't happen again. 'Cause the truth is...truth is I miss you... I miss you more than I can say even if, uh, I don't know how to say it.
Lindsay: Do you have any idea how hard you are to love?
Danny: (smiling) Why don't you come over here and tell me in person? Please.
Lindsay: I gotta go...
(Danny is home when someone knocks at his door. He opens up and Rikki is standing in front of it, with a bowl of sugar in her hand)
Rikki: Normally, neighbors ask for sugar. But I thought I'd be daring and offer some first.
Danny: (smiling and taking the bowl from her) Rikki.
Rikki: Mind if I come in?
Danny: Rikki, listen. I've been thinking, this thing... this thing between us. You were right. We made each other feel good. I'm starting to think it's a bad thing for us to do.
Rikki: (interrupting him) Danny, I'm moving.
Danny: (totally surprised) You're moving?
Rikki: (nods) I need a fresh start. Too many memories.
Danny: I'm... I'm...
Rikki: No. Don't say you're sorry. Just say goodbye.
Danny: (sighs) Goodbye.
(Rikki turns around and wants to leave, but Danny calls her back.)
Danny: Rikki, wait. (Rikki turns around) What about the sugar?
Rikki: (touching his cheek) You're a sweet man, you keep it.
(Rikki then leaves and Danny goes back inside)
(Danny and Lindsay are in autopsy and on their way back to the lab Danny runs after Lindsay.)
Danny: Hey, wait up a sec. Where is the fire?
Lindsay: Got work to do.
Danny: I was thinking that maybe we could... ehm... talk.
Lindsay: Now? This isn't exactly the best time.
Danny: Ok, fine, you tell me when.
Lindsay: Honestly? I don't know.
(Lindsay turns around and leaves Danny behind. He is sighing.)
Danny: I hope it was worth it. Because you just kissed your life goodbye!
Reed: We have a serial killer to catch.
Mac: No, Reed! I have a serial killer to catch! You just want a headline! But I get it, so out of love and respect for your mother, I'll give you an exclusive. You ready! (very angrily) Watch who you mess with!
Reed: Is that a threat from you or the killer?
Stella: What was it you once said? When the heat is on, gotta wear more sunblock.
Mac: I said that? Think I was just back from vacation.
Danny: Peanuts! Popcorn! Poison!
Flack: (smirking while watching the cheerleaders give lip prints) Sexy...but dangerous.
Flack: You should piss Lindsay off more often.
