Episode Summary

EDIT
Red, Red Wine
AIRED:
Ballard is annoyed when she finds out that the fact that she had a date with Falsone is around the squad room. Munch has a doctor's appointment and he's not talking about it. Dr. Griscom calls on the homicide unit when he sees a number of deaths that are related by a poison named phosphozine. The FBI steps in on the poisonings and they put MGee in charge of a task force; they consider it an act of domestic terrorism. One of the victims was a priest; two others were his parishioners. Gharty suspects the communion wine. Following this idea, wine bottles are collected from churches around the city. A needle hole is found through one of the corks. A citywide canvassing of all places where wine can be purchased is launched. Gee disagrees with the bureau's policy of keep information from the public. One possible suspect is captured; however, strange as he is, he's not the one. Through an internal leak, the media is alerted and warns the public, sparking chaos. MGee suspects the source of the media leak is his father and Gee doesn't deny it. Further investigations lead to a phosphozine delivery in which one bottle was allegedly damaged and discarded, the delivery driver (whom Bayliss & Sheppard had encountered) is arrested.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • During the team meeting, Mike Giardello states that Episcopalians receive communion on the first Sunday of each month. This is incorrect, Episcopalians, like Catholics, receive communion at every mass.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Flynn I needed to make a difference. I needed to have an effect on people lives.
        Bayliss That is why you poisioned people? So you wanted, you wanted to feel powerful? You wanted to ruin people's lives? You wanted to hurt them? You wanted to kill people? You wanted to change the future, Mr. Flynn? That is not fate, that is murder. That is cold blooded callous murder.

      • Munch No ma'am a black tongue and swollen gums are not symptoms of phosphozine poisoning. Maybe it's scurvy. Have you been lost at sea recently? No!

      • Stivers You know how much wine there is in Baltimore?
        Munch Oceans, but most of it's undrinkable.
        Lewis Well never the less, I for one am going to go home and take all my wine, I'm gonna dump it in the toilet.
        Munch Meldrick, this doesn't apply to you, we're talking about wine with corks, not screw tops,
        Lewis Oh.

      • Shephard I gotta tell you, digging up a priest definatly feels sacrilegious to me.
        Bayliss I read about this old Buddist funeral tradition, meditating on a corpse. You sit in there for days, watching as the dead person bloats, turns black, decomposes, you stay with the remains until you understand that the body is just a shell. Life goes on, it doesn't end. It just transforms.
        Shephard I have a hard time imaging life beyond my body.
        Bayliss Yeah, in your case so do I.
        Shephard You coming on to me Bayliss? In a cemetary.
        Bayliss I'm just responding to the moment, Renee. Besides I always tend to feel the life force surge in the presence of death, don't you?
        Shephard I don't know about surge but I feel a definiate twinge.

      • Munch Anyone who's ever had a so called flu shot will eventually contract a terrible debilitating diseases that makes Gulf War Syndrome look like ache.
        Gharty So called.
        Munch Flu immunization is a hoax perpetrated by the shadow government and it's national security forces against the American people. They're stealth testing biological warfare technology on an unwilling American public. Guinea pigs like you.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Phosphozine: is a fictional chemical. Unless a poison is extremely well-known, like arsenic or cyanide, writers are encouraged to use imaginary exotic substances so as not to create too many instances of life imitating art.

      • Music in this episode: Los Babies del Merengue "Le Salio" & "Ay Que Vacilon" alb: Ay Que Vacilon.
