  • One more great episode..

    The CSI team are so devoted and excellent at their work and give you the impression that not only this is the way that everything should be done -in terms of seriousness, responsibility and broadened knowledge- but also that this is the way they are done.. It is amazing what one can do with so little evidence.. They put the pieces together and their instinct never lets them down.. It seems that for them their job is their life and they would do anything to be efficient at their job.. The feeling they have after one more triumph of their team is their reward..moreless
  • Art & Music - great combos.

    We have Mac & Stella dealing with a woman literally shot through the heart with a arrow. Where this case leads them is interesting from the playboy being a possible target to the ladies he "follows" seeking revenge. But as it turns out, it definitely a crime of passion but not from the party they thought. Which I thought was a great twist. A "pasted" concert promotor was a more cut & dry for me. I knew Gus Drood had a hand in it, I just didn't know how much the band was involved. I loved the interaction between Mac & Lindsay in this episode. Both with the bows & guitars. He very much respects her skills & thought process and she is still willing to learn new investigative skills. Of course we have the scene at Cozy's were Danny learns a thing or two about his boss which is nice. Mac does have skills outside of the lab.moreless
  • This was a really cute episode. Loved the musical tie in and there were a lot of great scenes. I also loved the scenes with Stella on the computer and the mosaics. spoilers inside.moreless


    Loved seeing Frankie and Stella together before he went all craaaazy. Also liked the whole art exhibit. Some modern art can be amazing. Then there was also the whole death bit in the beginning. That must be horrible, when the girl died and he was stuck to her? Crazy. THE CASES:

    First there was the case of the whole chick being murdered. Carlo was a jerk. He used women, and you can't blame the guy for wanting to kill him. I mean even Flack admitted he wanted to kill him. You felt sorry for the artist, because it was supposed to be a party for his work, but it was a party for Carlo to get laid.

    Then there was the case with the Rough Sects. I loved them, and I love how the manager makes the girl's think they killed the guy when in actuality he killed him. The manager could have saved him but he covered the guy with glue. What a jerk. And I felt sorry for the girls because of the manager.


    The black book scene with Flack. All the quotes from it. And how him and Stella were checking it out. And he kept saying "his words, not mine." I love my Flack. I also loved the scene with Lindsay and the arrow and how she wanted to do it again. The look on her face after she fires it in the bull's-eye for the second time? Absolutely adorable. I love Lindsay

    I also loved the whole Mac at the Jazz club and Danny and Lindsay together. Very cute. Love them together.

  • A band called Rough Sects, art gallery and Mac plays the guitar!

    So the eppy started off with Stella and her boyfren, Frankie at an art gallery. (Note: Frankie's an artist) And fast forward to the rooftop. Well, a couple was kissing and suddenly an arrows starts flying and goes right through both the couple. Caution : Avoid kissing on the rooftop next time. =P I like the idea of making a painitng with inserting tiny other lil pictures. It's creative i must say.

    Second case is followed up by Danny and Lindsay bout a guy found in glue. And nearby, a group of band called the Rough Sects were practising. In the end, it was one of band members who killed the guy and the producer of the band poured glue over the poor guy.

    Oh, and Mac plays the guitar in a pub called Cozy's. Not forgetting, Danny and Lindsay were together in the pub *squee*moreless
  • Rough Sects? Who thought that one up? Mac plays in a band...What am I missing? I know Sinise does.

    Rough Sects? Who thought that one up? Mac plays in a band...What am I missing? I know Sinise does. Watching this on a re-run, I'm just about ready to slap Stella's boyfriend. His comments "The art is as beautiful as you are" are such corny, cheesy lines. OK, thinking it over, I can see why Mac might get out, have a life, play bass is a band on Wednesdays... So yeah, I actually believe that now. Musician, Painter, Softball... is there anything Danny can't do? Or did he only say that for Lindsay?

    Now that brings me to the best bit in the episode... Danny and Lindsay date non-date innocent meet-up in a jazz club to mates sharing a drink... Just get together already!!!!! (This would be in upper case but tv.com doesn't let you).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The wall of posters used in this episode will be seen again in 4x16 Right next door when Mac and Stella bring the children out of the empty building.

    • Goof: When Mac and Stella are first examining the "corpse", you can see her blink when the camera is on Mac; though her face is turned away, her lashes move.

    • At the end of the episode, when Mac is playing in the jazz club, the musicians onstage with him are Carol Williams & Kimo Williams who are members of Gary Sinise's band, The Lt. Dan Band.

    • Goof: When the arrow is being removed from the deceased female in the morgue (at 9 minutes 27 seconds), it can be clearly seen that the arrow being pulled from her back is moving faster than it disappears from her front.

    • Mac often unwinds on Wednesday evening by playing guitar in a small jazz bar named Cozy's.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Stella: 'Art is the sex of imagination.' (Mac gives her a look) It's a George Jean Nathan quote. Frankie likes to say it.

    • (Questioning Sienna who says she didn't kill)
      Flack: Sorry. Can't take your word for it.
      Stella: But we will listen to your fingerprints.

    • (Lindsay identifies the victim as a music promoter)
      Lindsay: It's not as glamorous as I would have imagined. Where's the limo and the girls with the tight shirts?
      Danny: Yeah, trust me, it's not like that at all.
      Lindsay: You know more about this than your average CSI?
      Danny: Yeah I played for a while, enough to get a taste of the world, and that was enough for me.

    • (After Hawkes says anyone at the party is a suspect. Mac and Hawkes look at Stella)
      Stella: Well my prints aren't going to match. Promise.

    • (Danny walks into a jazz club where Lindsay is already there waiting for him)
      Danny: Sorry I'm late.
      Lindsay: It's okay. I ordered you a beer.
      Danny: Thanks. So, what's up?
      Lindsay: It's just something I thought you might be interested in.
      Danny: Jazz music? That's me.
      (Danny sees Mac on stage with a bass guitar as Mac makes a comment about a member of the band)
      Danny: Get outta here. Are you kidding me? How'd you know he played?
      Lindsay: Figured it out. I could tell by the way he held the bass in the lab that he knew guitars, and I knew he had a standing appointment on Wednesdays. Could have been a shrink, or yoga, but I took the music option.
      Danny: I'm impressed.
      Lindsay: Maybe you didn't know him as well as you thought.

    • Flack: Carlo's all about the details, isn't he?
      Stella: Flack!
      Flack: Commenting, not condoning.
      Stella: Uh-huh.

    • (After Lindsay hits bull's eye with her first arrow ever)
      Lindsay: (puts out hand) Can I have another?
      Mac: You've proven the point.
      Lindsay: (takes another arrow) I know.

    • (Lindsay watches Mac shoot an arrow at the range)
      Lindsay: Another weapon you're an expert with. I don't know whether to be impressed or worried.

    • Stella: Pubic hairs are not like fossils, they don't hang around forever.

    • (Stella just handed Flack a report of Mirabella's pubic combing)
      Flack: Two foreign pubic hair samples. Now there's a party!

    • Flack: (walking up to Stella and randomly saying) I've slept with a lot of women. Some wild, some crazy, some both.
      Stella: (looks at him) 'Scuse me?
      Flack: Carlo's words. Not mine.
      Stella: Ah.
      Flack: Shoulda swung by the hospital to meet this guy. He's a piece of work. He calls himself the new American playboy. Lives, drinks, and breathes women. Again his words. With that in mind, as far as jealous exes go, lot of 'em.
      Stella: Looks like Carlo's emerged as our primary target.
      Flack: Five minutes into the interview, I wanted to kill him.

    • James Golden: Nobody was there for my art.
      Stella: I was.

    • Danny: (to Lindsay) Wanna go see Rough Sects?

    • Mac: Our killer's a hunter...and his prey is human.

    • Mac: You guys on that music promoter?
      Danny: Like glue.
      Mac: (laughs as he walks away)
      Lindsay: He doesn't think that's funny. He's humoring you.
      Danny: You don't know him like I do.

    • Mac comments on Stella's dress, and she says that she wasn't planning on working. Mac says: been there. This is an allusion to Risk, where Mac is called out of a mayoral function and shows up to the scene in a tuxedo.

    • Stuck On You is the title of a 2006 movie starring Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear.

    • Stuck On You is also the title of an Elvis Presley's song that reached number one on the charts in 1960.
