"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Goodbye and Good Luck (#8.7)" (2007)
Marlon West: I asked Hannah to teach me how to make GHB, and how to get it into Kira. I just wanted to mess her up a bit. I snuck it into Kira's room a few days ago; I still had a key. Hannah must've made a copy.
Sara Sidle: I believe you, Marlon. I really do. But the only thing that a jury's going to see is your prints on the lube, your prints on the windowsill, and another dead girl.
Marlon West: Why is Hannah doing this to me?
Sara Sidle: I don't know. All I know is... you don't deserve to take the fall for this. And the question is... are you going to let your sister get away with this and spend the rest of your life in jail?
Marlon West: If Hannah wants me in jail, that's where I'm going to be. There's nothing I can do about it.

Hannah West: You don't expect me to confess to something I didn't do?
Sara Sidle: I am just putting you on notice. You are not fooling me anymore.
Hannah West: I think I know why you're so angry, Sara. I did some research. I read about what that serial killer did to you out in the desert, under that car...
Sara Sidle: We're talking about you, Hannah.
Hannah West: It must've been so terrible being trapped like that all alone. Did your life flash in front of your eyes?
Sara Sidle: That is none of your business.
Hannah West: You must've been so sad knowing that you were gonna lose everyone who mattered to you.
Sara Sidle: Stop it, Hannah.
Hannah West: Look, I know how it feels. One moment my parents were alive, and the next they were gone.
Sara Sidle: Answer the question!
Hannah West: My life changed in that moment. All that I have left is Marlon. Why would I do anything to hurt him?
Sara Sidle: [stands and hits the table] Stop playing games with me!
[leaves the room]
Hannah West: You're the one who's playing games.

Hannah West: [to Sara] He didn't kill Kira. He cared about her.
Sara Sidle: Hannah, what makes you think that I would believe anything that you tell me?
Hannah West: [sweetly smiles] I suppose I'm an optimist. College has been a difficult adjustment for Marlon, especially after we lost our parents.
Sara Sidle: I'm sorry about that.
Hannah West: You're not really, though. When will Marlon be able to leave?
Sara Sidle: Well, we're going to keep him here as long as we possibly can.
Hannah West: At least that's honest. It also seems a little vindictive.
Sara Sidle: Given your brother's history, I think it's pretty sensible.
Hannah West: What's wrong, Sara? You're different than you used to be. You're angry. And a little sad, too. Why?
Sara Sidle: If you want to spend more time with your brother, I recommend you invest in a good lawyer, Hannah.

Captain Jim Brass: [to Sara] It's going to be tough to get a warrant.
Sara Sidle: I need Marlon West's DNA. If his semen is in Kira Dellinger, it puts him at the murder.
Captain Jim Brass: Look, they had a known sexual relationship, so there's no evidence of rape. And I don't know if you know this, but Marlon's mother and father were killed in a car accident last year. Judge Bowman is going to be very sensitive to that. It could look like harassment.
Sara Sidle: Jim, are you going to talk to the judge or not?
Captain Jim Brass: Wow, you really got it out for this kid. What's the deal here, Sara?
Sara Sidle: Marlon West has killed before.
Captain Jim Brass: Not according to a jury of his peers.
Sara Sidle: Did you have fun talking to Kira Dellinger's parents?
Captain Jim Brass: Excuse me?
Sara Sidle: Must've been a lot of screaming and crying and despair.
Captain Jim Brass: Yeah, there usually is. What's your point, Sara?
Captain Jim Brass: My point is, if we had done our job right the first time, Marlon West would be in jail, and Kira Dellinger would still be alive. Talk to the judge.

Marlon West: [to Marlon] We're here to talk to you about Kira Dellinger.
Marlon West: Kira committed suicide.
Sara Sidle: Actually, she was murdered.
Marlon West: Somebody I know ends up dead and I'm automatically a suspect?
Captain Jim Brass: History has a way of repeating itself, Marlon.

Nick Stokes: [about Marlon West] He confessed. It was later thrown out on a technicality. We really didn't need it. The prosecution's case against Marlon was very strong.
Sara Sidle: Until Marlon's little sister Hannah got on the stand and confessed to the murder herself.
Catherine Willows: Oh, yes, I remember this case. A high school senior at age 12.
Nick Stokes: She's a pint-size Machiavelli. She manipulated events, fabricated evidence, and in the end...
Sara Sidle: She claimed that she did it because she loved Marlon. Some warped sense of justice... She graduated later that summer, became legally emancipated from her parents and went off to Harvard, pre-med.
Gil Grissom: You keeping tabs on her?
Sara Sidle: Not recently. Look, accident or no accident, Marlon killed before. Hannah sunk this case, Marlon got a free pass, and now he's killed again.
Catherine Willows: Well, we don't know that just yet. I mean, we don't have Marlon's DNA to compare with the semen that was found in the victim. All the old evidence was expunged with the verdict.
Sara Sidle: I want this case.
Gil Grissom: The one that got away?
Sara Sidle: We're not supposed to let them get away, right?

Ronnie Lake: [about the Jiminezes] How are we going to handle this?
Sara Sidle: Well, the guy's under arrest.
Ronnie Lake: He'll be free by tomorrow. Her husband is obviously abusing her.
Ronnie Lake: There's got to be something we can do.
Sara Sidle: We'll be back for her body next month. Or his. Or both. There is nothing you can do about this, Ronnie. Don't kid yourself.

Sara Sidle: [to Ronnie about Mrs. Jimenez] What happened? Her husband attack her again?
Ronnie Lake: No. She came involuntarily. It took some convincing, but she's agreed to go to a shelter.
Sara Sidle: She won't stay.
Ronnie Lake: Maybe not. But at least now she has a chance. Look, I did it all on my own time, no OT. I know it's not the way you do things, but I think it's part of the job. At least, that's how I want it to be. For me.

Hannah West: [to Sara] You need to talk to me again?
Sara Sidle: I do. I know that you killed Kira Dellinger. I just can't prove it.
Hannah West: That must be frustrating for you.
Sara Sidle: Hannah, Marlon's dead.
Hannah West: Wow. That's a really sad and desperate ploy, Sara. It's beneath you.
[Sara shows Hannah the photo of Marlon hanging at the windowsill]
Hannah West: .
Sara Sidle: He was doing well here, wasn't he? Making friends, joining a band, falling in love. But you're still a freak, just like high school.
Hannah West: You're lying. No. This is a lie.
Sara Sidle: His world got bigger, and yours stayed the same, and you killed Kira so you could keep him all to yourself, didn't you?
Hannah West: [screams] It's a lie! No... it's a lie! It's a lie! This is a... lie!
[She drops her backpack and grabs Sara's hands. Sara struggles with her and kneels as Hannah cries]
Hannah West: Stop it! Marlon... he-he-he can't leave me all alone.
[Sara puts her arm around Hannah]

Sara Sidle: I don't think Kira punched Marlon. I think Hannah picked up the tooth from a fight that Marlon had earlier in the evening. And I think she planted it on Kira.
[Grissom is silent as he thinks about it]
Sara Sidle: That's crazy.
Gil Grissom: It's possible.
Sara Sidle: This kid is spinning me in circles again.
Gil Grissom: You know, Sara, some cases, some suspects, can get under your skin. Like this tooth. But you can't let 'em make you feel bad.

Sara Sidle: Gil, You know I love you. I feel I've loved you forever. Lately, I haven't been feeling very well. Truth be told, I'm tired. Out in the desert, under that car that night, I realized something, and I haven't been able to shake it. Since my father died, I've spent almost my entire life with ghosts. We've been like close friends, and out there in the desert, it occurred to me that it was time for me to bury them. I can't do that here. I'm so sorry. No matter how hard I try to fight it off, I'm left with the feeling that I have to go. I have no idea where I'm going, but I know I have to do this. If I don't, I'm afraid I'll self destruct, and worse, you'll be there to see it happen. Be safe. Know that I tried very hard to stay. Know that you're my one and only. I will miss you with every beat of my heart. Our life together was the only home I've ever really had. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love you. I always will. Good bye.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Unusual Suspect (#6.18)" (2006)
Hannah West: When's the last time you had to sit down to be eye level with a murder suspect who is standing up?
Sara Sidle: Hannah, you are smart.
Hannah West: So I've been told.
Sara Sidle: But you are not smart enough to get away with murder.
Hannah West: I think I am. A lot of people are smart enough to get away with murder. You probably are too. But you have to be really smart to make people think things happened... that never did.
Sara Sidle: What do you mean... exactly?
Hannah West: Please don't worry about me. I'm going to be fine.
[leans in]
Hannah West: [whispering] I didn't kill Stacy. Marlon did.

Sara Sidle: I bet you really liked high school.
Nick Stokes: Yeah. Playin' football, chasin' girls, books when I wanted to learn somethin', what's not to like?

David Hodges: Ah, teen lust. It's starts with some chemistry, mess around with some biology.
[Nick and Sara give each other looks]
David Hodges: And once you have some experience under your belt then you introduce the physics. Apparently chivalry is not dead. The bloody fingerprint tested positive for nonoxynol spermicide.
Nick Stokes: So much for the boyfriend.
Sara Sidle: If we can't pin this on Hannah or Marlon, they could both walk.
David Hodges: You could flip a coin.

Sara Sidle: [reading what's on Hannah's dress] Rainbow party?
Nick Stokes: Yeah, it's a party game where the boys get the girls to wear different colored lipsticks while they have oral sex. The boy with the most colors wins. It's supposed to be trendy.
Sara Sidle: So much for spin the bottle.

Hannah West: You don't think I could have done it. Either one of you.
Sara Sidle: That's a big job... for a little girl.
Hannah West: Not if you have the right tools.
Sara Sidle: Smart kid like you, knows your brother is suffering, you feel bad, you wanna help... so you fabricate some evidence.
Hannah West: Uh, if you thought the evidence was fake I wouldn't still be in jail.

Sara Sidle: Do you have any physical evidence that would conclusively rule Hannah out as a suspect?
Nick Stokes: Well... yeah. She's four-foot three and sixty-five pounds. The crime just required more strength than she's got.
Catherine Willows: How old is she?
Nick Stokes: 12.
Warrick Brown: In high school?
Nick Stokes: She's a high school senior. She skipped six grades. She's a prodigy.
Sara Sidle: Which means that she has the brains for murder.

Sara Sidle: [to Hannah about Stacy's murder] You put sodium in the showerhead to get back at her?
Hannah West: A prank for a prank. I thought that there'd be a few sparks, that she'd freak out and that'd be it, but the nozzle exploded. Stacy ran... and fell down the stairs... and died. I tried to cover it up.
Sara Sidle: You miscalculated.
Hannah West: I guess I did.

Hannah West: Look, I don't need a lawyer, and I don't need my parents. I just want to do what's right.
Sara Sidle: Hannah, taking the blame for something you didn't do may be noble, but it doesn't make it right.
Hannah West: That's deep. Okay. It happened like this: Stacy humiliated me, I wanted revenge.
Sara Sidle: Yeah, and you knew that there was no way you were ever going to get it by yourself.

Nick Stokes: The evidence says either one of them could have done it, but I think they were in it together.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: Okay, I'll proceed against Marlon for the murder and bring charges against Hannah for conspiracy.
Conrad Ecklie: Another trial? You sure you want to go through all this again?
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: Stacy's parents and the community will have my ass if I don't.
Sara Sidle: Well, then maybe this is good news. I was just going over Sofia's notes from the original investigation. The night of the murder, Hannah and Marlon's parents had left them alone in the house. A pizza was delivered to the residence around 9:00 PM.
Nick Stokes: That's right around Stacy's TOD.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: So, did anybody talk to the delivery guy?
Sara Sidle: Yes, and at the point that Sofia did, a month had passed. Now, the delivery guy's at the house all the time. He recognized photos of both kids, but he could not be sure which one answered the door that night.
Nick Stokes: But one of them did answer the door.
[Sara nods]
Nick Stokes: So that means they were not together at the time Stacy was killed.
Conrad Ecklie: Yeah. So much for conspiracy. We're right back where we started.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: Where we are is in the crapper. Look, I have to disclose the cart. Defense is going to eat me alive.
Nick Stokes: Marlon's your guy. He's your guy - just because Hannah wasn't there doesn't mean she didn't help plan this.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: Well, I sure hope it's Marlon, because he's the one we have on trial.
Nick Stokes: I stand by the case we filed.
Conrad Ecklie: I agree. The girl's just trying to protect him.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: Sara?
Sara Sidle: This was more about brains than brawn. I think Hannah did it.
Conrad Ecklie: Two out of three.
A.D.A. Jeffrey Sinclair: In my world, that's called an acquittal.

Sara Sidle: [to Hannah] Hey, there.
Hannah West: Did you come to say bye?
Sara Sidle: No. Actually, you and I are going to be seeing a lot of each other. If you thought the DA wouldn't prosecute a twelve-year-old for murder, you were wrong. He wants justice for Stacy and her family.
Hannah West: Of course. He's a totally linear thinker. Most of you guys are.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Iced (#5.23)" (2005)
Dr. Al Robbins: Interesting fact about cyanide - not everyone can smell it.
Sara Sidle: Right, it's a genetic quirk.
Dr. Al Robbins: Unfortunately, I don't have that ability.
David Hodges: [walks into the morgue] "The nose" has arrived.
Sara Sidle: Hodges has the genetic quirk?
[Robbins nods]
David Hodges: It's a blessing and a curse.

Greg Sanders: I found this toilet behind my apartment complex. It's volunteered for an experiment.
Sara Sidle: It's moving.

Greg Sanders: Ah, a sex journal. Lists of girls, dates and sexual activies.
Sara Sidle: Boys and their conquests.
Greg Sanders: I've never even heard of some of these.
Sara Sidle: [Surprised] Really?
Greg Sanders: Never mind.

Mia Dickerson: So, I'm thinking that Trip put a trophy condom on his neighbors door and then transferred a trace of his reproductive material back onto his own doorknob.
Sara Sidle: You've uh, you've heard of trophy condoms?
Mia Dickerson: Sara, I went to college.

Greg Sanders: Hey Grissom, when you went to college did you live in the dorms?
Gil Grissom: Surely, you jest.
[Sara laughs]
Sara Sidle: You know they say a BA is worth a million dollars of extra income over your life.
Gil Grissom: Yeah but the present value of college tuition is about the same amount.
Greg Sanders: So you're saying college isn't worth the expense?
Gil Grissom: I guess it depends on what you learn.

Mia Dickerson: Hey. Want to talk about semen?
Sara Sidle: Okay.

Sara Sidle: [after a toilet explodes in a college dorm] Well, there's got to be some logical explanation.
Greg Sanders: Well, if dorm food is as bad as I can remember, we should consider explosive diarrhea.

Sara Sidle: I'll drive.
Greg Sanders: You *always* do.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Bully for You (#2.4)" (2001)
Sara Sidle: [Sara smells like decomp] Give me a mint.
Nick Stokes: You're gonna need more than one.

Greg Sanders: You smell like death.
Sara Sidle: I've heard.
Greg Sanders: You know... a real man wouldn't mind.

Sara Sidle: Soup?
Nick Stokes: Human... soup. Well, we are 73.5% liquid, eh, Dave?
David Phillips: Add some bacteria, a couple gases, and... voila!

David Phillips: From the sound of it, I'd say he's been dead about two months.
Sara Sidle: Sound of it?
David Phillips: [shakes the bag, liquid sloshes around inside it]

Greg Sanders: You smell like death.
Sara Sidle: I've heard.

Nick Stokes: Shut up. She was not.
Warrick Brown: I saw her in action.
Nick Stokes: Really?
Warrick Brown: Yeah, she was.
Nick Stokes: Catherine?
Catherine Willows: I was what?
Warrick Brown: I was just telling Nick how you were a big bully in high school.
Catherine Willows: A bully? All right, I guess I was. But, I mean, not the kind that people want to take a gun out and shoot.
Warrick Brown: No.
Nick Stokes: No, no. You were the kind that guys fall all over themselves trying to impress.
Catherine Willows: Like you, Nick, huh? Oh, Nick... what were you in high school?
Nick Stokes: Me? I was, uh... I was "dependable".
Catherine Willows: Dependable.
Nick Stokes: Mmhmm.
Catherine Willows: Dependable jock, dependable stoner?
Nick Stokes: No. Never a strap, never a smoker. Just all-around "dependable" guy, I guess.
Warrick Brown: Cath laughs. right before Sara walks into the break room: What Nick's trying to say he was unpopular.
Nick Stokes: pointing at Warrick for emphasis: No, no I'll tell you what I wasn't; I wasn't a Mac Daddy wannabe with a 'Members Only' jacket.
Warrick Brown: What's wrong with those Member's Only jackets? They were kinda cool back in the day.
Sara Sidle: Nick, Ronny's got something on Liquid Man, says it's hot.
Nick Stokes: Great.
Warrick Brown: Hey Sara, what were you in high school?
Sara Sidle: Nick walks past her and sniffs: Science nerd.
Nick Stokes: whispers: You changed? But you still smell. Let's go.

Gil Grissom: Sara, do you have any duct tape in your kit?
Sara Sidle: Yeah. It's what I use to hold it together.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Rashomama (#6.21)" (2006)
Sara Sidle: I remember David saying "You'd think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day." So there we were at Cupid's Kiss, a nuptual Neverland where the cheese factor was dangerously high and the flowers were obviously fake. Can the love be real when the flowers aren't?

Greg Sanders: "You'd think she'd know better than to wear white on the bride's big day." A dame was dead, but enough about her. The air was hot and heavy with wrong, making me thirsty, thirsty for a tall drink of water. That's when I saw her: a flower, but not the kind you pin on a lapel. She was long-stemmed.
Sara Sidle: All right, Raymond Chandler, we get it.
Greg Sanders: Those weren't just Miracle bras. They were creating four Wonders of the World.

Lacey: Cruella made me wear underwear today. Nobody makes me wear underwear.
Valerie Whitehall: [pulling a buccal swab from Greg's kit] I'll do you if you do me.
Sara Sidle: They did not!

Sara Sidle: I'm not anti-wedding. I'm just anti-stupid.

Sara Sidle: Why do we always eat here?
Greg Sanders: Open 24 hours.
Sara Sidle: Everything in Vegas is open 24 hours.
Greg Sanders: It's tradition
Nick Stokes: [walks in from car] Mmmm. Smells like bacon. Slide over.
[sits down]
Nick Stokes: That scene took forever. We were there, like what, 9 hours.
Sara Sidle: 11.
Greg Sanders: Dead laywer and 200 eyewitnesses? That's gonna take a while.
Nick Stokes: [nods] Why do we always eat here?
Greg Sanders: [smiling] It's tradition.
Sara Sidle: Ah, tradition. Like becoming a property exchange between your father and your husband.

Greg Sanders: We could compare them to the buccal swabs that we collected... if we still had them
Sara Sidle: Well, we just have to recollect them.
Greg Sanders: All 200 of them?
Sara Sidle: eah. And since we can't leave... someone else is... gonna have... to recollect them.
Nick Stokes: This is crap! I've been waiting on IAB for 14 hours. I'm tired, and I kinda smell. And I don't have a friggin' car

Sara Sidle: I need your hands.
Nick Stokes: I thought you'd never ask.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Accused Is Entitled (#3.2)" (2002)
Gil Grissom: Tom Haviland's attorneys are not waiving time.
Nick Stokes: Are you serious?
Sara Sidle: They're actually exercising their right to a speedy trial?
Gil Grissom: No requests for continuances, no stall tactics. They're pushing for their day in court.
Warrick Brown: Good defense attorney always does the last thing you expect.
Catherine Willows: Yeah. What typically drags on for months has now been put on the fast track and the prelim is less than 72 hours.
Greg Sanders: I'm only done processing half the evidence.
Catherine Willows: You're going to have to call in help, because if the judge thinks that our evidence isn't strong enough to go to trial, he's going to dismiss the charges on Tom.
Sara Sidle: Can't the D.A. drop the charges and we'll refile when we get our evidence together?
Catherine Willows: Sure, but the odds are that Tom will relocate to Europe and pull a Polanski.
Greg Sanders: And what's a Polanski?
Gil Grissom: Get-out-of-jail-free card. One more thing: Westcott just added a forensic scientist to their roster. She wants him to examine every piece of evidence we have against Haviland.
Nick Stokes: As soon as it's processed they'll get a copy of our report.
Gil Grissom: They're entitled to see it as it's processed.
Nick Stokes: I've never done a case where the defendant took advantage of that rule of discovery.
Gil Grissom: Well, when you can't attack the evidence itself, you attack the method of gathering the evidence.
Sara Sidle: So who's their guy?
Gil Grissom: Dr. Phillip Gerard.
Sara Sidle: Phillip Gerard? Your mentor is their forensic scientist?
Gil Grissom: Yeah. Marjorie Westcott's a smart lawyer.

Sara Sidle: Vic didn't sustain any trauma that would've caused a medium velocity spatter.
Sara Sidle: She wouldn't have. I think her throat was slashed, to shut her up. She was collateral damage. My guess... these blood patterns mean that Tonya's dead. And I bet she was the first to die. Rage killing.

Catherine Willows: So, I've checked every plumbing fixture in this place. There's no blood.
Sara Sidle: Grissom said he found blood under Movie Boy's nailbeds.
Catherine Willows: And that sheet looks like a butcher's apron. Movie Boy had to wash his hands someplace.

Sara Sidle: There was another guy in that room. That's, that's great. The defense has us moving so fast we can't make sense of our own evidence.
Gil Grissom: That's what they want.

Sara Sidle: [to Grissom] I've looked at everything in that hotel room. Nothing matches that pattern.
Gil Grissom: What about the booking photos of Tom? Were you able to make comparisons off those?
Sara Sidle: I told Brass that I needed them; he hasn't sent me anything yet.
Gil Grissom: This case is a moving target. I'll get ahold of Brass.
[notices Sara is dressed for her court appearance]
Gil Grissom: You look nice.
Sara Sidle: Thanks. Wish me luck.
[turns to leave]
Gil Grissom: Sara? Whatever happens in court, it's not because you're seeing this guy. You deserve to have a life.

Atty. Marjorie Westcott: [to Sara] You date... you and Hank. You share a subtle communication. Did he move the bra to where you might have wanted it?
Sara Sidle: I didn't want it anywhere. I collect evidence without emotion.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: You do get emotionally involved, though with the men on your cases. Hank Peddigrew isn't the first time.
Sara Sidle: Excuse me?
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: A murder investigation at the residence of one Charles Renteria. Eyewitness stated he saw you and your supervisor Gil Grissom standing alone outside and you were touching him in a romantic gesture.
Sara Sidle: I brushed chalk from his face.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: Is that what they're calling it now?
Prosecutor for CSI: Objection, your honor.
Sara Sidle: Drywall dust. We were looking for a body.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: It's a fair question, your honor. Just how far will Ms. Sidle go on the evidence to please her boss, Gil Grissom, whether he returns her attentions or not?

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Crate 'n' Burial (#1.3)" (2000)
Sara Sidle: Are my observations distracting you?
Gil Grissom: Huh? Oh, I barely heard you.
Sara Sidle: Good thing I have a healthy ego.

Sara Sidle: Hey, Grissom. Can you come tape me up?
Gil Grissom: [after Sidle goes back into the room] I love my job.
Catherine Willows: It shows.

Sara Sidle: Hey, Grissom, could you come tape me up?
Grissom: [to Catherine] I love my work.
Catherine Willows: It shows.

Nick Stokes: Yeah, but I got her a chem set.
Sara Sidle: You keep that; might learn something.
Nick Stokes: Stop flirting with me.

Nick Stokes: Hey, Catherine, when's your little girl comin' by?
Catherine Willows: She isn't.
Nick Stokes: Yeah, but I got her a chem set.
[looks over to see Grissom had bought the same gift]
Sara Sidle: You keep that; might learn something.
Nick Stokes: Stop flirting with me.

Sara Sidle: [about Catherine's daughter having a birthday] What's the rule, how long do I have to be here before I start kickin' in for gifts?
Catherine Willows: When spirit moves you, Sara, so in your case I guess, um, never.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Table Stakes (#1.15)" (2001)
Catherine Willows: Well, according to her credit card records Portia Richmond hasn't spent a dime since she's been in the Mediterranean.
Sara Sidle: She's dead.
Catherine Willows: Not necessarily. She may have been... swept off her feet.
Nick Stokes: Some guys still like to foot the bill.
Sara Sidle: How would you know?
Nick Stokes: Hey, I only go dutch if girls ask the wrong question.
Catherine Willows: What question it that, Nick?
Nick Stokes: "What do you drive?"
Sara Sidle: It's a legitimate question.
Nick Stokes: No, it's not. What it means is "how much do you make so you can take care of me".

Sara Sidle: You're awake, I hate you.

Nick Stokes: [walks in to see Greg lively doing his work] What up, G?
Sara Sidle: You're awake, I hate you.
Greg Sanders: Couple glasses of merlot, a rack of lamb on my day off. I slept like a baby yesterday. You look horrible.
Sara Sidle: Thanks, Greg.
[Greg looks at Nick]
Nick Stokes: Don't look at me. I got 'sunshine' all night.
[Nick glances over at Sara who glares back at him, definitely catching exactly who he's calling "sunshine"]
Nick Stokes: Check for DNA in the sexual assault kit and the fingernail, please.
Sara Sidle: Everything has to be in CODIS ASAP.
Greg Sanders: Oh, is that all? I want to know who's going to authorize my overtime?
Sara Sidle: Suck it up, Greg. You're well-rested.
[Sara walks away]
Greg Sanders: [to Nick] You want a valium for her?
Sara Sidle: [from a distance] I heard that!

Warrick Brown: What ever happened, "To cross the tape, go the distance"?
Catherine Willows: [dials number on cell phone] I was probably saying that to get you to service my needs at the time.
Catherine Willows: [Sara answers]
[still half asleep]
Catherine Willows: Hello.
Catherine Willows: Hey Sara you sleepin'?
Sara Sidle: [sighs] Yeah.
Catherine Willows: Aww...

Sara Sidle: What am I, working food and beverage at one of the hotels? I haven't had a day off in three weeks
Sara Sidle: I mean if they're gonna call me in, throw me a bone, give me the 4-19 on the elevator
Nick Stokes: Someone's bitter
Sara Sidle: I'm tired
Nick Stokes: You, tired, I thought you never sleep
[Sara yawns loudly]
Nick Stokes: [Nick laughs]

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Primum Non Nocere (#2.16)" (2002)
Gil Grissom: There are three things in life that people like to stare at. A rippling stream, a fire in a fireplace and a zamboni going round and round.
Sara Sidle: Charlie Brown. 'I love a zamboni'

Sara Sidle: Since when are you interested in beauty?
Gil Grissom: Since I met you.

Sara Sidle: You sucked at team sports, huh?
Greg Sanders: I was captain of the high school chess squad.

Sara Sidle: [Greg is explaining how he was captain of the high school chess squad] Chess is not a sport, Greg. Sports are physical.
Greg Sanders: Well, sex is physical. So is that a sport?
Sara Sidle: Not to me.

Milton: I shot an arrow into the air,it fell to earth, I knew not where; For, so swiftly it flew, the sight. Could not follow it in its flight. Long, long... '
Nick Stokes: Sir, that's, that's really sweet.
Milton: That's Longfellow. What do you kids know about poetry?
Sara Sidle: Nick, the arrow came in through that window.
Nick Stokes: Yeah.
Milton: Even an idiot would see that.
[Nick goes out, looks around and finds another arrow, he comes back]
Nick Stokes: Hey Sara, I found another arrow shot into the ground near that tool shed.
Sara Sidle: Maybe the shooter got nervous.
Nick Stokes: Well, to work in a Brothel you're required to register your fingerprints. So...
Sara Sidle: I'm almost done here, I'll catch up.
Nick Stokes: Okay. I'll let you know if we get lucky.
Sara Sidle: [turns to Milton and finishes the poem] 'Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke; And the song, from beginning to end, found again in the heart of a friend.' Keep the faith Milton.

Sara Sidle: [after putting her hand in the water] Feels like bath water. It's gotta be ninety degrees. There's no way we're going to get an accurate TOD.
Gil Grissom: Places like this always keep their pools warm, it encourages the girls to swim topless. It's good for business.
[at Sara's look]
Gil Grissom: So they tell me.

Gil Grissom: Where's your coroner?
Sheriff Ned Bastille: Couldn't get him on the horn. Probably out in some barn, up to his elbows in a cow's vagina.
Sara Sidle: Excuse me?
Sheriff Ned Bastille: Oh yeah, coroner's a part time gig here in Bryant County. He's a veterinarian. That's his money gig.

Gil Grissom: Twenty-five people here last night, and nobody sees anything.
Tanya: [passing by] Nice hat honey.
Sara Sidle: So, uh, you've been to a place like this before?
Gil Grissom: I worked a murder/suicide at the Naughty Kitty once.
Sara Sidle: No, no. Come on, you know what I mean.
Gil Grissom: As a customer? No.
Sara Sidle: You've never paid for sex?
Gil Grissom: I have not. I find the whole idea very... bleak.
Sara Sidle: Really? How come?
Gil Grissom: Sex should provide the opportunity for human connection, but paid sex does the opposite of that. To me, sex without love is... pointless. It makes you sad.
Sara Sidle: Well, I'm pretty sure I don't make you sad.
Gil Grissom: No. You make me happy.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Fallen Idols (#7.17)" (2007)
Sara Sidle: You rang?
Archie Johnson: Yes, found the owner of that cell phone.
Sara Sidle: Megan.
Archie Johnson: Nope. Shiela Latham.
Sara Sidle: What is Megan's best friend's cell phone doing in the front seat of her boyfriend's van?
Archie Johnson: [singing] If that's your boyfriend, if that's your boyfriend...
Sara Sidle, Archie Johnson: He wasn't last night.

Sara Sidle: You know, when I was in college, I had this boyfriend - and I thought we were monogamous. Then one night during the post-coital panty search, he handed a pair of underwear that wasn't mine.
Warrick Brown: Ooh! How'd he explain that one?
Sara Sidle: He said they belonged to his sister...
Warrick Brown: Yeah right... Let's hope your taste in men has improved.
Sara Sidle: Yeah...

Sara Sidle: [about to shave Grissom's face] Do you trust me?
Gil Grissom: Intimately.
[They wink at each other]

Sara Sidle: High school student with a van... I'll bet half the senior class is in here.

Sara Sidle: [laying in bed watching Godzilla together] I always feel sorry for the monster.
Gil Grissom: Then you better turn it off before they use the oxygen destroyer on him.

Gil Grissom: Do you believe that intelligent life exists on other planets?
Sara Sidle: I'm not sure there's intelligent life on this planet; I just was in the barn.

Sara Sidle: [looking at the pigs] I think the fat one likes you.
Nick Stokes: They always do.

Sara Sidle: Hi.
Nick Stokes: Hey.
Sara Sidle: What are you doing?
Nick Stokes: Well, I read about this farmer in Canada who killed a bunch of women and fed them to his pigs.
Sara Sidle: Oh.
Nick Stokes: Yeah, their health department had to put out a bulletin that said "Warning, your pork may be contaminated with human."
Sara Sidle: I'm so glad I'm a vegetarian.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Sex, Lies and Larvae (#1.10)" (2000)
Sara Sidle: What if... you can hear the victim's screams? In the car, or at the store.
Gil Grissom: You have empathy for her, Sara. You want someone to pay for what was done to her. That's normal.
Sara Sidle: [pauses] You want to sleep with me?
Gil Grissom: [looks up at her] Did you just say what I think you said?
Sara Sidle: That way, when I wake up in cold sweat under the blanket, hearing Kaye's screams, you can tell me it's nothing, it's just empathy.

Scott Shelton: Like I said, I'd wrestle her off me, but I never, ever, laid a hand on her.
Sara Sidle: How 'bout a gun?
[glares at him]
Scott Shelton: [looks to Grissom]
Scott Shelton: You have your hands full with her.
Gil Grissom: So do you.

Gil Grissom: You've still got to convince a jury.
Sara Sidle: On bullets. It's got to be better than bugs.
[Grissom looks at her]
Sara Sidle: Less Latin.

Scott Shelton: [after Sara discovers blood that has been wiped clean off the wall] I have no idea how it got there.
Sara Sidle: It "got there" when you shot your wife in the head before you wrapped her in a blanket and dumped her in the mountains.
[points her finger in his face]
Scott Shelton: Get your finger out of my face!
[they fight]
Sara Sidle: You touch me again, you draw back a stump.
[to Grissom]
Captain Jim Brass: Get her under control!
Gil Grissom: [shouts] Get him out of here, Jim!
Scott Shelton: Told you she was a handful.
Sara Sidle: You don't know a handful!
Gil Grissom: Hey, hey, what's the matter with you?
Sara Sidle: I am a woman, and I have a gun and look how he treated me! I can only imagine how he treated his wife!

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Nesting Dolls (#5.13)" (2005)
Sara Sidle: [Sara and Grissom sit facing each other. The light from the setting sun filters through the darkening room] It's funny... the things that you remember and the things that you don't, you know. There was a smell of iron in the air. Cast-off on the bedroom wall. There was this young cop puking his guts. I remember the woman who took me to foster care. I can't remember her name, which is strange, you know, 'cause I couldn't let go of her hand.
Grissom: Well... the mind has its filters.
Sara Sidle: I do remember the looks. I became the girl whose father was stabbed to death. Do you think there's a murder gene?
Grissom: I don't believe that genes are a predictor of violent behavior.
Sara Sidle: You wouldn't know that in my house. The fights, the yelling, the trips to the hospital. I thought it was the way that everybody lived. When my mother killed my father, I found out that it wasn't.
[Sara starts to cry. Grissom reaches out and holds her hand]

Catherine Willows: You know, every time we get a case with a hint of domestic violence or abuse, you go off the deep end. What is your problem?
Sara Sidle: Yeah, I probably do, and you let your sexuality cloud your judgment about men, and I'm gonna go over your head.

Sara Sidle: [to Ecklie] The only reason this is your lab is because Grissom doesn't kiss ass. You couldn't hack it in the field, so you fail your way up, you break up our team, and now you just hang out in the hallways waiting for one of us to screw up.

[Grissom comes to Sara's residence]
Sara Sidle: Well, if you're here, it can't be good... Can I get you anything?
Grissom: Sure. An explanation.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Good, the Bad and the Dominatrix (#7.23)" (2007)
Gil Grissom: I'm the only one Heather trusts.
Sara Sidle: I get it.
Gil Grissom: Sara.
Sara Sidle: [Grissom can't think of what to say] It's fine. Do what you need to do.

Lady Heather Kessler: I don't respond well to men who judge me based solely on my profession.
Sara Sidle: I get that a lot too, law enforcement.
[they share a smile]

Sara Sidle: How much do you think a night like this would cost?
Catherine Willows: Heather told me, five years ago she was clearing twenty grand a week. And that was before Lady Heather dot com.
Sara Sidle: [after a moment] What is she like?
Catherine Willows: Beautiful, smart, intense... charming. The only woman I've ever seen rattle Grissom.
[Sara stops processing and looks up]

Catherine Willows: Heather on the other hand, uninhibited, and can beat him at mental chess...
Catherine Willows: [Sara can't believe what she's hearing] They had chemistry and he's a scientist, I have no proof and I know he'd never tell me, but I'm certain they spent the night together... I wonder which one wore the chaps.
Sara Sidle: [clears her throat] Lots of coins and toothpicks, they don't sweep under here.
Catherine Willows: More power to him really to find someone outside of work, 'cause... you start fishing from the company pier and asking for trouble.
[Sara has a look of total shock]

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Empty Eyes (#7.18)" (2007)
Sara Sidle: My date got canceled.
Gil Grissom: I'm sure he had a good excuse.

Sara Sidle: [crying] I held his hands, just like I held hers and I lost perspective.
[Grissom wipes Sara's tears]

Nick Stokes: It was good that you were there for her Sara. She didn't have to die alone.
Sara Sidle: [sadly] We usually show up too late to meet the victim.

Hodges: You ever do the right thing, and still feel guilty?
Sara Sidle: [softly] Yeah. Sucks, doesn't it?

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Sounds of Silence (#1.20)" (2001)
Sara Sidle: What was that all about? Grissom signs?
Warrick Brown: You know he drinks when he goes out at night?
Sara Sidle: He goes out?
Warrick Brown: Exactly. Who knows anything about that guy?

[Grissom wouldn't tell them how he learnt sign language]
Sara Sidle: [coming into the room] What was that all about? Grissom signs?
Warrick Brown: What does Grissom drink when he goes out at night?
Sara Sidle: He goes out?
Warrick Brown: Exactly. Who knows anything about that guy?

[Grissom walks in with a witness]
Sara Sidle: Well, now we know why Grissom's late.
Warrick Brown: Ahh, you just don't like any other women in his life.
Sara Sidle: I'm gonna pretend I didn't hear that.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Evaluation Day (#1.22)" (2001)
Sara Sidle: It's hard to tell where the human ends and the animal begins.

Greg Sanders: [turns to Sara] Squirrels love'm,
[turns to Nick]
Greg Sanders: they get tossed at the Dodgers Stadium,
[turns back to Sara]
Greg Sanders: and they make a hell of a butter.
Sara Sidle: You're nuts, you know that?
Greg Sanders: Exacomundo. PEANUTS! Right scopes' the skin, left scopes the shell of the nut. Think peanuts Espanol.

Sara Sidle: For every one that parts, one stands above ground.

Sara Sidle: [to Greg] I heard you finally lost your virginity.

Sara Sidle: I don't have a death wish, and I'm not a drunk. In case you were worried.
Gil Grissom: I'm not worried. I'm concerned.

[to Greg, referring to his first autopsy]
Sara Sidle: So I heard you lost your virginity.

[Beeper goes off; Catherine calls in]
Jerrod Cooper: Hello?
Catherine Willows: Oh, hey.
Jerrod Cooper: Who's this? I just dialed my own damn beeper.
Catherine Willows: It's my beeper now. I found it.
Jerrod Cooper: It ain't your beeper, girl. That's my beeper. I do a lot of business on that beeper.
Catherine Willows: What kinda business?
Jerrod Cooper: Oh, you know. Slangin' a little somethin' somethin'.
Catherine Willows: Oh, a little somethin' something'. Maybe a little bling-bling?
Jerrod Cooper: What do you know about some bling-bling?
Catherine Willows: Invite me over to your crib, baby, and you might find out.
Jerrod Cooper: It's on. Three Aces Motel. Room 202.
Catherine Willows: Three Aces Motel, room 202. See you soon.
[she hangs up, and looks at Sara who was listening]
Catherine Willows: Did I just do that?
Sara Sidle: What's a "bling bling"?
Catherine Willows: Got me.

Catherine Willows: Is there anything in there with alcohol?
Sara Sidle: Root beer?

Gil Grissom: [considering three possibilities using the "Norman" dummies] Norman pushed... Norman jumped... Norman fell.
Sara Sidle: Wouldn't you, if you were married to Mrs. Roper?

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Unleashed (#11.19)" (2011)
Sara Sidle: During Iona's cat role-playing, did umm, she ever express the desire to be eaten by a mountain lion because that's how she died.

[CSIs approach Dr Neth's mansion, loud music playing]
Sara Sidle: Someone's having a party...
Dr. Raymond Langston: Well they won't mind if we crash.
[Rings doorbell]
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Good evening! May I help you?
Dr. Raymond Langston: Dr Tyrell Neth?
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Yes.
Dr. Raymond Langston: I'm CSI Langston, this is CSI Sidle. We're from the Vegas crime lab, we'd like to ask you a few questions about Iona Vail.
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Certainly.
Sara Sidle: Can we come in?
Dr. Tyrell Neth: [laughs] By all means.
Dr. Tyrell Neth: I hope you like animals.
[CSI's walk into room full of 'cat' women, and exchange increduous looks]

Dr. Tyrell Neth: The idea of animal transformation - therianthropy - is as ancient as mankind itself. In native cultures, young males gain an animal spirit at puberty. Often the initiate must kill his spirit animal, consume it as a right of passage.
Dr. Raymond Langston: Yes I'm familiar with the concept but umm... my understanding of therianthropy is that it's fleeting, it's meant to be symbolic. In many cultures, the notion of retaining the shape of the beast is seen as nothing less than a curse.
Sara Sidle: Cat got your tongue? Maybe you could loosen it enough to tell us about Iona Vail.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Way to Go (#6.24)" (2006)
Gil Grissom: [the camera focus is on Grissom] I don't know. Most people want to die in their sleep, I suppose. Never know that it's happening, like a crime scene. Surprise, you're dead.
[the camera has slowly spins around to reveal Grissom is in a bedroom]
Gil Grissom: I'd prefer to know in advance that I was going to die. I'd like to be diagnosed with cancer actually, have some time to prepare.
[Grissom sighs]
Gil Grissom: Go back to the rain forest one more time, re-read 'Moby Dick.'
[the camera is now behind Grissom and focus on a room. A female steps out wearing a white silky bathrobe]
Gil Grissom: Possibly enter an international chess tournament.
[the female walks towards Grissom and the camera focus stays only on her body]
Gil Grissom: At least have enough time to say 'goodbye' to the ones that I love.
[the female sits besides him. It's Sara]
Sara Sidle: I'm not ready to say 'Goodbye.'
[Sara smiles at him. The camera focus switches to Grissom who smiles back]

Sara Sidle: Mr. Phillipe, I have a dead man with a nineteen inch waist and no way to identify him, any help, at all, would be appreciated.
Mr. Phillipe: Do you have a picture?
Sara Sidle: I have a head shot.
[shows him a picture of a severed head]

Gil Grissom: What do you think?
Sara Sidle: I think I feel fat.

Sara Sidle: I think someone died like this.

Sara Sidle: Take a left at the sewing machine and a right by the Mason Jars.
Greg Sanders: [looking around] Which sewing machine?
Sara Sidle: Just follow the North Star!
[Shines her torch on the ceiling]

Sara Sidle: Mrs Santiago, I need you to look at something
Mrs. Marta Santiago: If I do, will you leave?
Sara Sidle: I can't promise that.

Gil Grissom: I haven't seen you in a while, have I?
Sara Sidle: You see me every day.

Buddy Ween: That son of a bitch! He was working off the books. I can't believe he would try to stiff me.
Sara Sidle: He's actually the one who got stiffed.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Committed (#5.21)" (2005)
Sara Sidle: When my father died, my mother came to a place like this for a while for evaluation.
Sara Sidle: It looked the same, it smelled the same. It smelled like lies.
Gil Grissom: You sure you're OK?
Sara Sidle: Crazy people do make me feel crazy.

[last lines]
Gil Grissom: Well, jail or no jail - I don't think she'll last six months. She'll die without her son.
Sara Sidle: That would be better for both of them.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Snuff (#3.8)" (2002)
Sara Sidle: Why are you throwing phone books?
Warrick Brown: Because a beaker gets glass all over the place.

Catherine Willows: [to Douglas Sampson about Susan Hodap] You killed her.
Sara Sidle: [to Douglas Sampson, referencing the fact that he became infected with HIV by exposing himself to Susan's infected blood while killing her] I guess she killed you back.

Greg Sanders: Sara, I just want you to know that when we were in the shower together, I didn't see anything.
Sara Sidle: Really? Gosh, I saw everything...

Greg Sanders: No matter how hard you work to get big, there's always someone bigger.
Sara Sidle: It could be what keeps them going. Like Freud said, "Anatomy is destiny".
Greg Sanders: What do you think Freud would have to say about one of these being the murder weapon?

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Harvest (#5.3)" (2004)
Sara Sidle: This counts as field work, you know.
Greg Sanders: Oh, I'm smiling on the inside.
Sara Sidle: Dirty laundry or garbage?

Sara Sidle: You know what? You take garbage.
Greg Sanders: Thanks.

Sara Sidle: [sees two pill bottles] Daniel Perez is taking oxycodone for pain, and Alicia was on diazepam.
Warrick Brown: Diazepam? That's a pretty hard-core antidepressant for a kid that small.
Sara Sidle: I guess they didn't want her complaining while they were mining her body for healthy cells.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Bodies in Motion (#6.1)" (2005)
Officer Metcalf: My money's on meth lab.
Sara Sidle: You know, Metcalf, just because somebody lives in a trailer park, doesn't mean they're a meth cook.
Officer Metcalf: You guys are a real pain in the ass, you know that?
Gil Grissom: Get used to it, pal.

[Greg puts his hand in the soupy goop in the trunk and pulls the drain plug back - the goop splashes on his face]
Sara Sidle: Technically, that makes you a cannibal.
Sara Sidle: [pause] Grissom would be proud.
Greg Sanders: Grissom would've tasted it on purpose.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Lab Rats (#7.20)" (2007)
Sara Sidle: Hey.
Wendy Simms: Hey.
Sara Sidle: Here you go. I checked under the keys.
[she hands Wendy a keyboard]
Sara Sidle: Crusty white stains, pale blue under ALS.
Wendy Simms: Semen, huh? What made you check under the keys?
Sara Sidle: A butt print
[models with her hands]
Sara Sidle: on the credenza.
Wendy Simms: Yeah, okay, that's gross.
Sara Sidle: CDC contacted us because the whole office has a herpes simplex one outbreak, and nobody could figure out why. I guess you never really know what's going on in your office.

Wendy Simms: Hey Sara, is it true that the miniature cases have been keeping Grissom up at night?
Sara Sidle: [defensive] How would I know?
Wendy Simms: I just thought that maybe you guys all talk about it, and Hodges told me that Grissom confided in him and you know what, never mind, just forget I even asked.
Sara Sidle: Well, listen, I don't know what Hodges has been telling you but do you really think that Grissom would confide in him, about anything?
Wendy Simms: No, of course not.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Fannysmackin' (#7.4)" (2006)
Greg Sanders: [weakly] Sara
Sara Sidle: I didn't think you could see me.
Greg Sanders: I can't. I know that Sidle scent.

Catherine Willows: Pig and the piglets are in the pigpen.
Warrick Brown: About time. Finally some good news.
Catherine Willows: Did you know Pig, a.k.a Cole Tritt, was the only adult? The rest were all under 18. One was 14.
Warrick Brown: You're kidding. Who raises these kids?
Catherine Willows: I mean, they weren't all delinquents. Demetrius James was a college student.
Nick Stokes: Hangin' out with the wrong crowd in the wrong town. I'm tellin' ya, havin' a fake I.D in Las Vegas is like havin' a - a free ticket on the hell train. Sex, drugs, gambling, no adult supervision, 24/7, by the time they're 21 they've done and seen it all.
Catherine Willows: Make me slit my wrists why don't ya? I'm raising a teenager here.
Warrick Brown: Ah, you're doin' a great job, Linds is gonna turn out to be a beautiful young woman. Besides, I grew up in Vegas, I didn't turn out so bad, did I?
Nick Stokes: Yeah. That was pre-Mirage. Back when you were goin' to the casino, playin' the arcade games. Nah, Vegas is a different animal now.
Warrick Brown: Yeah, these kids need to beat people up in the street to be entertained. They need some good discipline, they need their grandmother whuppin' their ass like I had.
Nick Stokes: Yeah, a good slap.
Sara Sidle: You know, it kinda sounds like you guys are blaming everyone but these kids. I mean, you don't get a bye just because you grew up here or your parents are on drugs or - - those kids were perfectly capable of telling the difference between a wild night out and beating somebody to death.
Gil Grissom: The truth is, a moral compass can only point you in the right direction, it can't make you go there. Our culture preaches that you shouldn't be ashamed of anything you do anymore. And unfortunately this city is built on the principle that there's no such thing as guilt. "Do whatever you want, we won't tell." So without a conscience, there's nothing to stop you from killing someone. And evidently you don't even have to feel bad about it.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye (#6.13)" (2006)
Gil Grissom: [after finding Hodges coloring his grey hair with a sharpie marker] Vainity, thy name is Hodges.
Hodges: This isn't what it looks like. I actually like my grey hair, the few that I have.
Sara Sidle: Hodges, don't you know that grey hair can be very attractive.

Gil Grissom: High altitude enhances the entire sexual experience. It increases the euphoria.
Sara Sidle: Well, it's good. I don't know if it's that good... Cite your source.
Gil Grissom: Would you hand me a swab please?
Sara Sidle: You're avoiding the question. Cite your source.
Gil Grissom: A magazine.
Sara Sidle: What magazine?
Gil Grissom: "Applied psychodynamics in forensic science".
Sara Sidle: Never heard of it.
Gil Grissom: I'll get you a subscription.

Sara Sidle: We were just talking about murder and whether we would commit it. I couldn't, Warrick could and Nick's on the fence. We're taking an exit poll.
Nick Stokes: Catherine, you're a mother. You and Lindsey are on that plane. How far do you go?
Catherine Willows: All the way.
Sara Sidle: [surprised] You didn't even hesitate.
Catherine Willows: That's right. If it involves the protection of my child I fight to the death.
Warrick Brown: See? We have four people here, all with different opinions. Think of how the passengers must have felt.
Sara Sidle: What do you think, Grissom?
Gil Grissom: I can't answer that question.
Catherine Willows: That's a cop-out. It's a simple question. What would you have done if you had been one of those passengers?
Gil Grissom: It's not about that. You all have different opinions but you've taken the same point of view. You've put yourself in the shoes of the passengers, but nobody's put themselves in the shoes of the victim. That's the point.
Sara Sidle: I'm sorry. What are you saying?
Gil Grissom: Nobody stopped to ask Candlewell if he was all right. They just assumed, because he was kicking the back of Nate's seat, that he was a jerk - because he was pushing his call button that he was bothering the Flight Attendant - because he was trying to get into the lavatory he was making a scene - because he was going back and forth up and down the aisles, he was posing a threat.
Catherine Willows: He was a threat.
Gil Grissom: No. He turned into a threat. It didn't have to be that way. People make assumptions. That's the problem. You just did. And I think these passengers made the wrong assumption and now this guy's dead.
Warrick Brown: Well, if that's your stance how could it have been prevented?
Gil Grissom: If just one person had stopped and taken the time to look at the guy, to listen to him, to figure out what was wrong with him it might not have happened. It took five people to kill him. It would've only taken one person to save his life.

D.B. Russell: That's news to me
Sara Sidle: Well, you know how he is
Julie Finlay: What does he have?
Sara Sidle: All he would tell me is that the strings from the crime scene are starting to sing to him
Julie Finlay: That's very helpful

Sara Sidle: I thought that Maya was down here visiting
D.B. Russell: She was
Julie Finlay: Wait! You took Avery Ryan's advice?
[DB doesn't answer]
Julie Finlay: Does Maya know that she was down here as bait?
Detective Kevin Crawford: In case you wanted to know, we had her under surveillance 24/7. I'd hardly call that bait
