Detective Mack "Mac" Taylor
Detective Stella Bonasera
Dr. Sid Hammerback (Episodes 93+, Recurring Previously)
Adam Ross (Episodes 93+, Recurring Previously)
Goof: When Danny is washing his hands, there are two close-up shots in which he has blood all over his hands. Between those shots, there's another one in which he has (almost) no blood on them.
Goof: Stella is not wearing gloves when she is into Diakos' apartment, and she is seen opening a door. It is highly unlikely that there was no evidence whatsoever of Stella's and Angell's presence in the room when the police showed up later and processed the scene.
Goof: How does Sid get to the warehouse and how come is he allowed in without a vest?
Even though Stella gave up to her vacation days to save Adam's job, she fakes it and calls in sick to enjoy a day off and pursue a case on her own which sounds fraudulent.
Goof: Stella uses a heart beating meter as a lie detector, which isn't a reliable method, let alone considering the stressful situation the man was put into.
Goof: Danny takes his cell phone out of his jeans pocket before washing his hands. It doesn't make much sense for him to do that only than to conveniently have quick access to it to reply to Lindsay's call. Moreover, even though his hands are covered in blood, the cell phone is not stained at all.
Goof: Danny throws the blood stained shirt he is wearing to the wastebasket in the locker room. However, it is a piece of evidence that will help into the investigation of why he shot the guy.
Scripps Florida developed the touch screen protein analyser depicted in this episode, the one which determines that traces of heroin contained a human-specific protein. Professor Jennifer Busby and software engineer Bruce Pascal set up the real piece of equipment at the set for filming.
Marty Pino and Anabel used to go over Sid's place every Sunday for dinner.
Anabel Pino was a grade school teacher.
Hawkes: The prion that causes Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a degenerative neurological condition.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is which develops the human form of mad cow disease.
Goof: When Pino escapes from Lila Wickfield's apartment, Flack hurries towards the window and Marty can be seen running down in the alley. He turns his head to the side for a second, only moment when his sunglasses are visible. Danny reaches the window seconds after and states that he is wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses, even though he didn't have the chance to see them.
Goof: When Lila Wickfield notices the condom wrapping on the floor she is not wearing gloves; the second after, when she picks it up, she is wearing a yellow glove on her right hand.
Mac: Bikini wax party.
Flack: Apparently not all their customers are women.
Danny: Put the gun down, Marty.
Marty Pino: Come on, Danny. I don't wanna hurt anybody. I just wanna get out of here.
Hawkes: You know that can't happen, man. Come on.
Mac: It's over, Marty!
(As she puts him in the cargo container to be shipped away)
George Kolovos: We had a deal!
Stella: I lied.
Mac: All right, playtime's over.
Receptionist: What do I tell my customers?
Mac: Credit card's declined. Fire drill. I don't care. Just get everybody out of here as quickly and as quietly as possible.
Receptionist: Get out. Carmen, that's it. Get Mr. Jones out of his harness.
Anabel Pino: (To Sid) Marty finally asked me to marry him. You're the closest thing I have to a father. Would you give me away?
Prof. Papakota: (who is near sighted, to Stella) It was your hair. I didn't need my glasses to know it was you.
Mac: What's wrong?
Danny: Vest is in my locker.
Mac: You're staying here.
Mac: This is not open to debate.
Sid: Marty, look at me. After you left the ME's Office, how many people did you kill to make your drugs? I... I... get him out of my face.
Hawkes: Then our heroin wasn't just made by a human. It was made out of a human.
Mac: You all right?
Danny: I don't know. I mean, this is crazy. I mean, Marty was one of us, and now we're questioning him for murder?
Sid: (After trying to perform the autopsy on Anabel Pino) I can't cut her open, Sheldon. I'm sorry I'll have to get someone else to do the post.
Danny: (To Lindsay after the shooting) Hey, babe. How you feeling?... That's good... Same old, same old over here.
Sid: The last 15 overdose cases Pino worked. I had them exhumed.
Mac: You're the doctor, but isn't this one a few organs short?
Sid: Two kidneys, one bladder, and a liver to be exact.
Mac: All the organs where narcotics naturally accumulate.
Sid: And each of these bodies is missing the same ones.
Mac: It appears as if Marty Pino was able to produce heroin by cutting out and processing key organs from his assigned overdose cases. He used his training and this place as his own personal heroin pipeline. Only after he lost his job and access to dead junkies, he resorted to murder.
Stella: Let me take it.
Mac: I'm sorry, Stella. What I said before still stands. I can't have you investigating this. You're too emotionally involved. Diakos tried to kill you. I'm going to handle this one personally.
Stella: You already have so much on your plate, Mac.
Mac: I know how much this means to you.
Mac: Little Stevie?
Receptionist: Who's asking?
Flack: Members of his fan club.
Angell: Even if Kolovos takes the bait, we make a deal for the coins and catch him in the act, the man has diplomatic immunity in this country and no reason to cooperate.
Stella: You're right. But what if I told you we weren't gonna arrest him in the United States?
Angell: Stella, before we go forward with this, I have two things that I have to ask you.
Stella: Mac doesn't know. He can't. He already asked me to stand down.
Mac: How's Lindsay doing?
Danny: Uh, she said she looks like a whale, and she's bored. And she also said she found a dead beaver on her parents' property, and that she was tempted to rope it off with crime scene tape and start processing.
Mac: Well, next time you talk to her, you tell her we miss her.
Hawkes: (Interrupts Flack as he is interrogating Pino) Come on. What are you doing? The man just lost his wife.
Flack: He's lying about something.
Hawkes: He's scared, confused.
Flack: And he's your friend, Sheldon, so I understand why you're hearing something different.
Hawkes: There's no doubt Marty's made some mistakes. But I know he loved his wife. He couldn't have killed her.
Flack: Okay, then prove it.
Flack: I know a lot of my colleagues worked cases with you, and they all say that you're a good man. And, Marty, I know you know how this works, so I'm just going to come out and ask you: did you shoot your wife?
Marty Pino: Of course not.
Hawkes: Now I know why she looked so familiar. It's Anabel Pino.
Flack: Wasn't there a Dr. Pino at the ME's office?
Mac: Marty Pino.
Hawkes: Marty liked to gamble. He dug himself into a deep hole. Sid caught him falsifying his overtime slips. He had no choice but to let him go. He got into some financial trouble, but murder? There's no way he's capable of this.
Mac: I think a guy who's hit bottom is capable of anything.

Stella: The ancient Greeks would put coins on the eyes of their deceased to pay the passage from the land of the living to the land of the dead.
According to Greek mythology, the deceased had to cross the Estigya river in their passage from the land of the living to the land of the dead. Caronte, the boat man who crossed the souls, would take a coin to be paid for the passage. The coins on the eyes were used so the eyes would stay closed (rigor mortis would keep them open otherwise) because they believed that if the deceased kept them open, a relative will soon pass away as well. So another coin was usually placed under the tongue to pay to Caronte, because otherwise he would use the ones on the eyes.
Prof. Papakota: I heard that several tombs had been discovered in Cyprus believed to have dated back to King Philip II.
Philip II of Macedon (382–336 BC) was the father of Alexander the Great, Philip III and possibly Ptolemy I, the founder of the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt.
Angell: You said he called Diakos your Moby Dick.
Moby Dick is an 1851 novel by Herman Melville.
