"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Cross-Jurisdictions (#2.22)" (2002)
Horatio Caine: It's honey.
Catherine Willows: You say that like it means something.
Horatio Caine: Well, honey on its own is just honey. But add platic wrap and... it's a different situation.

Catherine Willows: Ready, honey?
Horatio Caine: Coming dear.

Honey Girl: Some guys like to lick it off.
Horatio Caine: Really? I prefer the swab myself.

Eric Delko: Someone gonna cover me?
Horatio Caine: I got you.
Catherine Willows: Cover you for what?
Eric Delko: Alligators.

Tim Speedle: Only way to outrun an alligator is swim faster than the guy next to you. Right Delko?
Eric Delko: I used to have a partner.
Horatio Caine: Guys, please.

Gordon Daimler: Rich people don't go to jail.
Horatio Caine: You're not rich.

Gordon Daimler: The Corwins lent me their jet.
Catherine Willows: Just like they lent you their boat?
Gordon Daimler: Ask the pilot. Dylan called him in person telling him to fly me to Monaco.
Horatio Caine: Hmm. I'd rather call Dylan at the hospital to confirm.
Catherine Willows: The husband didn't die. You left us a witness and enough evidence to incriminate you in two states.

Special Agent Dennis Sackheim: What did she say?
Horatio Caine: That you need to learn the language.

Horatio Caine: Detweiler, I know you want to impress your boss, but there's an innocent man on that boat. Now, if you take this shot, I'm going to be in your grille for the rest of your natural life. I want you to think about what that might be like. Think about that.
[after a moment of decision, Detweiler stands down]
Horatio Caine: Thank you. Speed, the Corwins have a jet. Find the jet. Call the FAA, and ground the jet by the authority of Miami-Dade County.


"CSI: Miami: MIA/NYC Nonstop (#2.23)" (2004)
Det. Mac Taylor: What have you got?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: A break in the case. Our victims live at 720 Star Island. Penrod jotted down 702.
Det. Mac Taylor: [in disbelief] He hit the wrong house?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [Matter-of-factly] He hit the wrong house.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [observing Mac process a crime scene] That's interesting. We scrape before we transport.
Detective Mac Taylor: We always vouchsafe at the scene. Different process, same principle.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yeah, it's interesting. And you fume at the scene, too.
Detective Danny Messer: [entering the room] Did I hear somebody say "fume"? 'Cause them I'm your man.
Detective Mac Taylor: Danny, I had you at that bodega in Queens.
Detective Danny Messer: I know, I know. I heard a cop went down; I figured you could use a guy like me.

Detective Mac Taylor: May I help you?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: My name is Caine, Miami CSI. I'm investigating a double murder case.
Detective Mac Taylor: Detective Mac Taylor. Crime scene unit, first grade. I'm listening.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Two nights ago in Miami, double murder case. A married couple. And I was... I was assuming that Murdoch here was my suspect.
Detective Mac Taylor: Narco unit. We think he was killed about three days ago. Strangled, probably a belt.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So that could mean that my suspect killed Murdoch, took his identity, went South, did my murders. It could also mean that we're chasing the same man.
Detective Mac Taylor: You think he's in New York? Well, one way or another, everything's connected. Brought you to me.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Trail ends here. I want first bite at prosecution. As you know, Florida has the death penalty.
Detective Mac Taylor: So does New York.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, but you have not executed since '76.
Detective Mac Taylor: Politics.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mac, I have a sixteen year old girl who is suddenly without both parents. I have promised her peace of mind.
Detective Mac Taylor: I got an officer's widow who'd like some answers. We got a deal.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Hey, Laura. I think it's important for you to be in a safe place right now.
Laura Spelman: Safe?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yeah. They're probably going to broadcast on the news that you survived the attack.
Laura Spelman: You mean he could come back?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, when...
[Laura starts to cry]
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: When... Laura... Laura, listen to me. Laura, I am going to find this man. He is not going to hurt you again. But I need you to be in a safe place until I do. You understand? I want you to go with those officers until I find him. The next time you see my face, you're going to know that you're safe. I promise. Okay?

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Something's not right, Alexx. Point of entry is back here, but the origin of the blood drops is down here in the study where Mom was killed. And they travel up this hallway to the bedroom, where Dad was eventually killed. Which means the killer bypassed the bedroom where Dad was attacked. Why would he do that? Why wouldn't you eliminate the muscle first?
Dr. Alexx Woods: That would have been the smart move. Why do you think he didn't?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Dad survives the attack, he managed to get up, come this way and head down the hall toward you, right? And along here, you see arterial gushing.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Where our suspect sank this sucker in him. Single-edged, all right. Phone's right here. Don't know why he didn't try to use it.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That's because he wasn't going for help, Alexx. He came down here to protect his daughter.

Det. Mac Taylor: Found this in the elevator shaft. There's no hilt, which means it doesn't leave a mark.
Doorman Kevin Dowell: Anybody could have stabbed him.
Det. Mac Taylor: When our lab tests the blood on your uniform and it matches Michael Jr.'s, that "anyone" becomes you. Specificity of DNA. You got back on the elevator, you dropped this down the shaft. Unfortunately for you, you dropped something else.
[Mac pulls out an evidence baggie]
Det. Mac Taylor: Would you mind holding up your arms, please?
[Kevin holds up his arms, and Mac compares the tassel to his uniform]
Det. Mac Taylor: Missing tassel. I imagine when you were wiping the blood off, the tassel was severed. You're the only doorman in Michael Hanover, Sr.'s last will and testament. The lawyers released it after we picked you up. There's an interesting thing here on page fifty-one. "For saving my life by administering emergency CPR when I sustained a heart attack, keeping me alive until the paramedics arrived, I leave the sum of one million dollars to Kevin Dowell, payable in full upon my death."
[flashback]
Michael Hanover, Sr.: A million, Kevin. You're in my will.
[present]
Det. Mac Taylor: Only you got impatient. Tried to speed up the process. So you had Hanover killed. That brings us to Penrod. Monster like him, what's his connection to a hardworking guy like you?
Doorman Kevin Dowell: Every good doorman needs a dealer. He's been mine for ten years. Drugs, women. Every kind of kink, you name it. Got to keep the tenants happy. There's nothing Penrod won't do.
Det. Mac Taylor: For a price.
[cut scene of Horatio arresting Penrod]
Davey Penrod: I don't know what you're talking about
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm talking about murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
[flashback]
Davey Penrod: [on the phone] Now, I told you. Half a mil and I'm in. All right, now give me the address. All right, hold on. Seven-oh-two Star Island. Now, I got an ID. Don't worry. Got a lowlife nobody'll miss.
Det. Mac Taylor: [to Dowell] That "lowlife" was an undercover New York City police officer. You couldn't have drawn more attention if you'd sent up a flare.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Alexx?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Blood pool's dry at the edges. Puts TOD around eleven.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So her head is literally hanging by a thread of skin.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Single-edged knife. Mom was attacked from behind, sliced left to right. No indication of resistance.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: She was probably asleep.
Dr. Alexx Woods: He transected all the neck muscles down to the second cervical axis.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: He decapitated her, Alexx.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Guy's a monster. Or he doesn't know his own strength.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well he's about... to know ours.


"CSI: Miami: Broken (#1.6)" (2002)
[Horatio examines a golf T-shirt]
Horatio Caine: You on to your next victim, Stewart?
Stewart Otis: That's not mine.
Horatio Caine: Really? Whose is it, mine?

Stewart Otis: [about his victim] I never even got to play with her.
Horatio Caine: [pause] Life, Stewart, is filled with disappointment.

[Horatio & Bernstein look at the crowd]
Detective Bernstein: 50 witnesses.
Horatio Caine: 50 suspects.

[Eric finds "MISSING" pictures of little girls]
Eric Delko: These cartons - he must keep them like some sick kind of trading cards.
Horatio Caine: They're not trading cards. They're headstones.

Horatio Caine: [to reporters] I'm not going to comment on evidence, but what I will say is that this animal has provided us with a mountain of evidence, and we will not sleep till we've been all the way through it, because we know that beneath that mountain lies his grave.

Brad Repkin: I have rights!
Horatio Caine: You violated your rights so shut up!


"CSI: Miami: Dispo Day (#1.18)" (2003)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: This cocaine did not come from Haiti.
Tim Speedle: Not unless Haiti's in the middle of our crime lab.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: They ask about your girlfriend?
Eric Delko: H, you know I don't have a girlfriend.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No girlfriend this week?
Eric Delko: The girl I'm seeing... I'm glad she doesn't have a polygraph.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Hey, Jack. You miss being a real cop?
Jack Seeger: You're just full of them today, aren't you?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You have no idea!

Paul Tomassi: Do you have any idea how much one of those costs?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: About half as much as two.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Five hundred dispos, we've never had a problem.
Detective Frank Tripp: You take the dope out of evidence, re-analyze it to make sure nobody pulled a switcheroo, and then cart it across town? We should just burn it at CSI.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Remind me to order the industrial-sized incinerator next time.
Detective Frank Tripp: Dispo route's classified. Somebody was in on the secret.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No such thing as a secret in Miami, Detective. Only useful information.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You guys couldn't find you ass with both hands.


"CSI: NY: Manhattan Manhunt (#2.7)" (2005)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I want you to be the first to know that you are returning to Florida.
Vincent Rosetti: Cool. I like the sun.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, well, you won't get to see very much of it, Vincent, because we... enforce... the death penalty.

Detective Don Flack: [about the students shot execution style] How did this happen? There were security guards at every one of the Endecott's Manhattan properties.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [about Darius] He's gotta be here somewhere.
Det. Stella Bonasera: Are we sure this is Darius?
Det. Mac Taylor: Take a good look at the position of these kids. Look familiar?
Det. Stella Bonasera: Yeah, those nurses in Midtown. He played in their blood.

Det. Stella Bonasera: Are you this hot on every case?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, I made a promise to a 8-year-old boy and I'm not going to let him down.
Det. Stella Bonasera: Say no more.

Det. Stella Bonasera: [about Horatio being served with a notice] Listen, I get named on these things all the time. Our union attorney's great of you want me to give you his number.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: This is a matter outside the job.
Det. Stella Bonasera: Sorry.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I have a number of memories up here and not all are good. So I apologize.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [cuffing him] Vincent Rosetti, you're under arrest for the murder of Lydia Johnson.
Det. Stella Bonasera: And that's just the charge in Florida.
Vincent Rosetti: Selling your weapon in Union Square to a stranger, Vincent. That wasn't too bright, was it?
Vincent Rosetti: No way I've been in Attaca the last six months on a stolen property bid.
Det. Stella Bonasera: Yeah we know that's where you met up with Henry Darius.
Vincent Rosetti: So I was in lockdown with him, big deal.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: On the contrary, Vincent. It is a big deal.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mac, heard there was a break in the case?
Det. Mac Taylor: Stella already has you on speed dial. I thought you had to duck out on personal business?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I got an extension.
Det. Mac Taylor: Good news for both of us.


"CSI: Miami: Blood in the Water (#4.2)" (2005)
Horatio Caine: You sent your bogus son to date their daughter so you could steal... their gold.

Horatio Caine: Not a pretty sight, is it, Frank?
Detective Frank Tripp: No, but it beats the show this morning. Twenty-year old girl gets attacked by sharks, older brother jumps in to save her. Both are missing. I think we have a better chance of finding the brother.

Laura Gannon: Please find our children.
Horatio Caine: Mrs. Gannon, I've got my best diver on it. If they're out there, we'll find them. Okay?

Luke Gannon: All I did was jump in and try and save my sister.
Horatio Caine: That's the way you wanted it to look.
Luke Gannon: You're wrong.
Horatio Caine: Am I? You torched the ship, it sank; the salvager scuttled it, you guys split the take.
Luke Gannon: Never happened.
Horatio Caine: We found Damon Loughlin's body. That's gonna tie you to the Elias house, the kidnapping, and the murder.
Luke Gannon: Why would I kill him?
Horatio Caine: Because he tried to prevent you from taking the gold.
Luke Gannon: Do you have any proof of that?
Horatio Caine: [warningly] Do not test me.

Laura Gannon: [learning she's been conned] I am such a fool.
Horatio Caine: Mrs. Gannon, you're not a fool. These are pros. This is what they do for a living.

Horatio Caine: Mr. Gannon, you have an arrest record that spans back some fifteen years now. That's quite a résumé.


"CSI: Miami: Evidence of Things Unseen (#1.16)" (2003)
[upon finding one of their suspects dead in the water]
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: The husband is dead... the wife is dead...
Detective Frank Tripp: The Russian's dead.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes. Let's go talk to the other Russian, the cousin, before he chokes on a Twizzler.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [Horatio is describing what the victim is wearing] Jeans, T-shirt... K-Mart socks.
Detective Frank Tripp: Big spender.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: He is obviously lying.
Detective Frank Tripp: Well, his lips were moving. Of course he's lying.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I've one more question for you. Do you have a life insurance policy on your wife?
Rick Breck: Are you kidding? I don't even have health insurance.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You see, I think if we connect these two cases, we'll have a shot at probable cause.
Detective Frank Tripp: The probable cause is that she's a stripper, she's a junkie, and she's a whore.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: She's also a human being.
Detective Frank Tripp: And now she's a corpse.

[finding their hit-and-run vehicle]
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: This car's been reported stolen, so we have to anticipate a mixture of DNA, right?
Eric Delko: Infante's and the car thief's. H, I thought you made him for a liar on this.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Infante *is* a liar. I just don't know what the lie is yet.


"CSI: Miami: Kill Zone (#1.9)" (2002)
Horatio Caine: So what do you get when a six foot tall man lays down with a three foot long rifle?
Calleigh Duquesne: Hot flashes... but that's just me.

Horatio Caine: Nice work. Have you considered a transfer to S.W.A.T.?
Calleigh Duquesne: I don't look good in all black.
Horatio Caine: I beg to differ.

[after catching a sniper who has killed four innocent people]
Sniper: Don't you want to know why?
Horatio Caine: You just killed four innocent people, you're evil, you enjoy death, I hope you enjoy your own.

Calleigh Duquesne: So, how do three people get shot in broad daylight on a busy street and nobody sees anything?
Horatio Caine: Sniper.

Horatio Caine: [measuring the distance of their sniper's nest] Six hundred and fifty yards.
Calleigh Duquesne: That's six and a half football fields.
Horatio Caine: One shot, one kill. This guy's either military trained or police.
Calleigh Duquesne: He's Marine Corps, probably. They're the best snipers in the world.

Horatio Caine: Okay, listen up. This guy is one shot, one kill. If he can't make it, he's not going to take it.


"CSI: Miami: Golden Parachute (#1.1)" (2002)
[first lines]
[Horatio & Eric arrive upon the scene of an airplane crash]
Eric Delko: [to phone] Flight 906, outbound Miami to D.C. Dropped off the radar at 0820, crashed right after takeoff.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: How many on board?
Eric Delko: [to Horatio] NTSB confirms 2 pilots, 6 passengers - total of 8 souls.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: 8 souls unaccounted for, OK.

[Eric pumps on a man's chest trying to reanimate him]
Eric Delko: Come on, breathe!
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Eric. Eric! He's gone.
Eric Delko: I lost him.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It happens.
Eric Delko: He could have told us something.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We don't need him to.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [looks around] We've got the whole story right here.

[Horatio & Calleigh look at the wreckage]
Calleigh Duquesne: Is it as bad as it looks?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It's actually worse than it looks.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: But that's not what brought the plane down.
Eric Delko: No... mmm... actually the shoe hit the fan, I found a piece of leather in the N°2 engine.
Megan Donner: [Megan cuts into their conversation] Let me guess, red suede $450 a pair, right?

Dr. Alexx Woods: [Alexx is going over the bodies] How are we doing on survivors?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Not good. How many have you got in here?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Four or five, depending on what pieces match.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Calleigh, the bullet?
Calleigh Duquesne: There was no bullet.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well how did the pilot get shot?
Calleigh Duquesne: He didn't.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [a close up of a rivet loosening appears. The pressure fires it through the cockpit where it hits the pilot] A rivet runs through it.


"CSI: Miami: Money for Nothing (#2.17)" (2004)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [after warning and shooting the bad guy] They never listen.

[first lines]
Sam: We have several rental properties available right now in Hialeah.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'd rather have them closer to the city.
Susie Barnam Keaton: Horatio... I told you, just because I slept with your brother does not make us your problem.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, but it makes you my family.

Tim Speedle: I got the GPS tracking signal from those two money bags, but it's stationary. Now why would a guy who just robbed an armored truck be parked like a sitting duck?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It's possible because I put two in his gas tank.
Tim Speedle: You could have put two in him.

Mary Donlan's Partner: Counterfeit?
Eric Delko: You ran off with $3.2 million in fake hundred strapped to your back.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Gonna make one hell of a story for the cell block.
Mary Donlan's Partner: Doesn't make sense. We pulled it right out of that truck. Didn't even have time to open the bags.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, I guess somebody beat you to it, didn't they?
Mary Donlan's Partner: But the truck came right from the bank.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, it did. Eric, go over to Dade Mutual and retrace the steps of the money, please.
Mary Donlan's Partner: Hey, what happens to me?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Twenty years to life.
Mary Donlan's Partner: Twenty years for stealing counterfeit cash? The money isn't even real.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Killing somebody was.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Dade Mutual bundled $3.2 million in real cash. We have a thief that was apprehended with 3.2 in counterfeit bills. That leaves the man in the middle: you. So here's my question, Paul. Did you, somewhere along the route, stop and swap the money out?
Paul Donlan: John and I were driving the shipment from point A to point B. Same as always.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So you notified Dispatch that you were twenty minutes late?
Paul Donlan: There was construction at the County Auditorium. Check the log.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I did, and we are $3.2 million short.
Paul Donlan: Then talk to the guy who stole it, okay? You gonna believe him over me?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Paul, in my business, I don't have the luxury of believing anyone.


"CSI: Miami: Body Count (#1.24)" (2003)
Stewart Otis: Why didn't you let me die?
Horatio Caine: Because you died a long time ago, Stewart. Let's go.

[Stewart Otis has been recaptured]
Stewart Otis: I will get out. It's my nature.
Horatio Caine: And I'll be waiting. That's my nature.

[Horatio learns a convicted child molester has escaped from prison]
Detective Yelina Salas: Horatio, you okay?
Horatio Caine: Nope. And with Stewart out there, no one is.

Horatio Caine: This murder is a decoy. We have an escape in progress.

[to the mother of a kidnapped little girl]
Horatio Caine: I can assure you, this man's interest in Emma is not monetary.


"CSI: Miami: Dead Zone (#2.2)" (2003)
[Caine is looking at a shark jaw and stuffed swordfish, sailfish, giant grouper on a wall]
Gabriela Betancourt: Something you need?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Possibly. These your husband's?
Gabriela Betancourt: Um-hmm. He likes to mount all his trophies.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I bet that makes you feel special, huh?

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Not even treasure?
Marty Jones: You guys found treasure in our quadrant. So that's what it's really all about?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, it's really about murder.

Bret Betancourt: Lieutenant, um, unless you have a warrant, it was really nice to meet you.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mr. Betancourt, you are about to make an enemy you don't need. Trust me on that.

Marty Jones: I don't even know how to use a speargun.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, you don't. Which is why you held it like a pistol.

Marty Jones: [laughs and clicks hook] Scares little kids and law enforcement. My hook.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Just like a pirate.
Marty Jones: Yeah. She's not too good with pliers; but, I love my hook. I love her.


"CSI: Miami: Simple Man (#1.17)" (2003)
Don: Look, Horatio, we're on the same side.
Horatio Caine: I'd like to think so.
Don: Yeah. Well, we are in the middle of the trial. We've already picked the jury, we called our experts, we spent over a million dollars in taxpayers money...
Horatio Caine: We have new evidence.
Don: Yeah. Well, that's what appeals are all about. Listen, this is not about the case anymore. Now, it's about winning.
Horatio Caine: Well, you know what then? We're not on the same side.

[about Alexx]
Horatio Caine: Fastest scalpel in the East.

Horatio Caine: [gunshots] Nice Shot.
Calleigh Duquesne: Hey
Horatio Caine: Are you busy?
Calleigh Duquesne: Oh, I'm up to my ass in alligators.
Calleigh Duquesne: There was a big shooting on the causeway yesterday. 54 expended rounds, not to mention Detective Hagen is riding me like a Gulfstream Park pony.

Detective Yelina Salas: [learning Horatio has re-opened the Abby Sandoval case] Just be careful, Horatio.
Horatio Caine: If I did that, it would take all the fun out of it.


"CSI: Miami: Innocent (#2.24)" (2004)
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Lieutenant Caine, do you really think the CSI that's responsible for destroying the original evidence should be assigned to the case?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I don't remember asking for your opinion, Rick.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Well, the commander suggested IAB should check into this, find out how this accident occurred and which employee maybe involved in undermining a major murder investigation, not to mention compromising countless other cases. It is Delko, right?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Eric, would you give us a minute, please?
Eric Delko: Sure H.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: 'H'. You see, that could be interpreted as a lack of respect for a superior.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You know, I am willing to take that chance.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: So as his superior, did Delko screw up?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, if any body did, I did.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: You did, you weren't even in the building at the time. Yelina says you were at the PD.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: My lab, my oversight.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: You cover a lot of people's screw-ups, don't you? Delko in evidence, your brother and that girl. What's her name? Susie right?
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Rick, and that is a private matter.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Well, you see, I see a pattern of you withholding critical information and I've opened a file on you.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Walk away.

[after it's proven Delko didn't deliberately try to destroy evidence]
Eric Delko: H, I'll be in the layout room.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay, Eric.
[Eric leaves]
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: I suppose I owe you an apology.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: The man you need to apologize to, Rick, just left the room.

IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: It isn't my job to be liked.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mission accomplished.

Marc Snowden: [Attorney representing pornography producer] My client is a prominent businessman with strong ties to the community. He has a family and three little girls.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Will they be appearing in your films, Mr. Jeffers, when they grow up?


"CSI: Miami: Bunk (#1.13)" (2003)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: MDP2P.
Tim Speedle: Methylenedioxyphenyl-2-propanone. It's not really a recreational drug. It's not really anything
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Maybe that means he didn't mean to make it. Go with me here for a second, Speed. Now, if you sub in formic acid for nitric acid, you get Ecstasy, don't you?
Tim Speedle: The cook screwed up.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Right. But because the pills were white, he figured he could still sell them as X.
Tim Speedle: So he replaces one ingredient along the chemical pathway to try and make something legal.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, he did, and ended up making a chemical so powerful, that its fumes could kill human beings.
Tim Speedle: So what are we chasing, the fumes or the pills?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We're chasing the cook.

Gregory Kimble: It's not against the law to have those chemicals.
Detective Adell Sevilla: No, it's not. Really brilliant operation Dr. Welmont has going on here. He provides the house, the chemicals and the recipe. He pays off a couple of cooks like you with lux cars. That's peanuts to the guys who sling the pills. Pills so unusual, there's not a law against it, but at the end of the day, he and his partners split about six million bucks.
Gregory Kimble: It's not six million.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: This is where you say "I don't know any Dr. Welmont."
Detective Adell Sevilla: [answering her phone] Yeah. Right.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: What do you got?
Detective Adell Sevilla: That was the medical examiner.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mm-hmm.
Detective Adell Sevilla: Just picked up a nineteen year old kid. Overdosed on E.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [to Greg] Nineteen years old. Nice going.

Tim Speedle: If we found a pill with Welmont's company stamp on it, why are we going to see the cook again?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Because he's weak. Welmont is the target, but Kimble is our ammunition.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Here's the irony: had you not been kind enough to provide me with the murder weapon, I would have been stuck with negligent homicide for the neighbor. But as it stands now, I can charge you with murder. And I haven't even gotten to the nineteen year old who ODed.
Dr. James Welmont: So what are you saying?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm just saying... thanks.


"CSI: Miami: Blood Brothers (#2.1)" (2003)
Horatio Caine: How'd you get that burn on your face?
Clavo Cruz: That's a razor burn. I get too many ingrown.
Horatio Caine: Wrong! It's from an airbag!

Dr. Alexx Woods: Horatio?
Horatio Caine: Alexx, take a look at these tread marks. They go from black to light, and that is caused by what? Acceleration.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Hit and run. Suspect was speeding away.
Horatio Caine: Nope. Point of rest, point of impact right in front of that tread.
Dr. Alexx Woods: You're telling me the driver meant to hit her?
Horatio Caine: I'm telling you that our hit and run is now a murder.

Horatio Caine: How are we doing?
Dr. Alexx Woods: No ID, but a handful of Benjamins in her pockets.
Horatio Caine: You think she's a pro?
Dr. Alexx Woods: I was thinking maybe a SoBe call girl, but everything about her says model. Implants, collagen, rib removal, weight... or lack of it.
[to the body]
Dr. Alexx Woods: Barely out of your teens. You don't belong here yet.
Horatio Caine: Let's notify Interpol. Most of these models are foreign nationals. Take a look at that.
[indicating the victim's hand]
Horatio Caine: It looks like glass.
Dr. Alexx Woods: It doesn't look like windsheild glass.
Horatio Caine: No. It's not tempered. It's blue. Maybe it's from some type of bottle.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Azuret champagne comes to mind.
Horatio Caine: So she fought with this guy before he ran her over. Boy, is he a prize.

Horatio Caine: You never gave any thought to the way your father arranged your life. You just took with no questions asked.
Ramon Cruz: You still can't arrest me. I'm in Florida waters!
Horatio Caine: Actually, you're not in Florida waters. About five hundred yards that way, you passed into international waters. The Coast Guard was waiting for you to make that mistake. Now you have fifty years to think about how you helped me in your arrest.
[Horatio points at Clavo]
Horatio Caine: And you, you watch your back. I'm not done with you. Now, gentlemen, it's been a pleasure. So remember, Clavo, when you're in Miami: We. Never. Close.


"CSI: Miami: Big Brother (#2.8)" (2003)
[finding incriminating evidence at a crime scene]
Horatio Caine: The killer just made their second mistake.
Yelena Salas: What was his first?
Horatio Caine: First mistake was murder.

Bob Keaton: What is this? Who are you?
Horatio Caine: Bob, we located methamphetamine in a car registered to you, and now you will be detained for questioning.
Bob Keaton: [to Susie] Are you kidding me? Susie, what are you, an idiot for bringing them here? What'd you do, drive up on a curb again, you stupid bitch? I ought to crack your head.
Horatio Caine: Hey. Hey, Bob. The next time you feel like taking a swing at somebody, you start with me. You understand me?

Horatio Caine: Do you recognize the meth, Bob? That is the meth that you sold my brother, Raymond Caine, the night you killed him.
Bob Keaton: Somebody else killed your brother.
Horatio Caine: The unknown third party theory.
Bob Keaton: The guy must have found out our deal was going down, shot Ray, ran off with the money.
Horatio Caine: And you just took your drugs and went home that night. I don't think so, Bob.
Bob Keaton: You know, Internal Affairs couldn't figure this out. What makes you so special?
Horatio Caine: The rumor of a dirty cop, Bob, is far juicier than a confirmation.
Bob Keaton: You just called your brother a dirty cop.
Horatio Caine: And maybe he was, Bob, but he didn't deserve to die.
Bob Keaton: We all have to die sometime.
Horatio Caine: Some... some sooner than others, Bob.


"CSI: Miami: Wet Foot/Dry Foot (#1.3)" (2002)
[an arm is found in a dead shark]
Alexx Woods: I think we're going to need a bigger body bag.
Horatio Caine: If anyone can find one, it's you, Alexx.
Alexx Woods: You got that right. All right, fellas. You heard the man. Bag him. My shark now.
Horatio Caine: I'm off to ruin a captain's day.

[Megan walks into Horatio's office]
Megan Donner: You ought to give me the name of your decorator.
Horatio Caine: Well, it's just a phone and a desk when we're not in the field.

Eric Delko: Coke wrapping must have picked up some blood when it was being loaded off of the boat.
Horatio Caine: Locard's theory. Primary transfer.
Eric Delko: Kind of like going to the bathroom: You can never wipe enough.


"CSI: Miami: Open Water (#4.22)" (2006)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Frank, I've got blood here. And there's a shoe print.
Detective Frank Tripp: Scuff marks, too.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Signs of a struggle.
Detective Frank Tripp: Railing's pretty high. Looks like Mike didn't dive in there by choice.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So if he didn't dive, he was pushed.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Agent Wynn.
Agent Robert Wynn: Lieutenant Caine. Oh, I hope you don't mind me dropping in. It doesn't work to call ahead.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: What do you want?
Agent Robert Wynn: Well, actually, I need your help, lieutenant. Something doesn't... smell right to me. The woman central to the investigation against Officer Delko becomes your girlfriend, thus protecting her from further scrutiny, and suddenly her own drug charges just disappear.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Agent Wynn, you should have done better research. There were no charges filed against the Delkos.
Agent Robert Wynn: You know, I did you a favor, lieutenant. I could've subpoenaed Marisol, stuck her in front of a white light and a grand jury. I was just trying to see if there was something there.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So you wasted your time.
Agent Robert Wynn: An investigation into a dirty lab is never a waste of time.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Agent Wynn, I don't know who you are or who you work for, but if you ever contact Marisol again, it'll be the last thing you ever do.

Marisol Delko: Last week, during my treatment, you said you were there for me.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Right.
Marisol Delko: What does that mean?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, I, um... I thought we agreed that we would do whatever we wanted.
Marisol Delko: Does that... does that include marriage?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It does.


"CSI: Miami: Just One Kiss (#1.4)" (2002)
Drake Hamilton: You said our DNA was contained in a single cell. How do we escape that?
Horatio Caine: Your family? You stop procreating.

Horatio Caine: [to Drake Hamilton] Are *you* suggesting that *I* protect a woman? That's rich.

Horatio Caine: The old Hamilton arrogance asserted itself.


"CSI: Miami: Dead Woman Walking (#1.15)" (2003)
Dr. Alexx Woods: I think I found cause of death.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Before you open him?
Dr. Alexx Woods: [handing Horatio an x-ray] Cervical fracture.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Looks like somebody snapped his neck. Have you tested under his nails for skin?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Just about to.
[Alexx takes the paper bag off the vic's hand]
Dr. Alexx Woods: Wait a minute. His hand wasn't like this on the scene.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You think that's parasite activity?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Not like I've ever seen.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That's got to be a chemical burn, though, right?
Dr. Alexx Woods: But that would have presented immediately.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Alexx? There's only one thing I know that burns like that.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Radiation. We can't stay here.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Got to notify the team. They may have been exposed, too.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Hey.
Belle King: No silver jumpsuit, hmm? I guess that means I'm... I'm all better.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, um... you've actually ingested some isotopes. An isotope called Iodine-131.
Belle King: The stuff they use for cancer therapy?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mm-hmm.
Belle King: But I haven't ingested anything. And even if I did ingest a little bit of Iodine-131, it wouldn't kill you.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Actually, you've ingested quite a bit of it.
Belle King: Well, how much?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It's my understanding that at these concentration levels...
Belle King: How much?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Um... roughly equivalent to what four patients undergoing radiation treatment ingest in, let's say, a six month period.
[Belle laughs nervously]
Belle King: Somebody's making a mistake. This... this can't be true. I didn't eat or drink Iodine-131.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We think you were poisoned. Now, the doctor is coming in to...
Belle King: How long?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We think you have about a week.

Belle King: Did you know Horatio was the first CSI?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: He was... the what?
Belle King: In "Hamlet." When Hamlet was poisoned and dying, he asked his best friend Horatio to tell the world who murdered him.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay, I'll tell the world.


"CSI: Miami: Grave Young Men (#1.20)" (2003)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You got a minute?
Detective Frank Tripp: Thirty seconds.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay. Jeff Wilton.
Detective Frank Tripp: Who?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Jeff Wilton is a high school kid from Homestead that disappeared three days ago.
Detective Frank Tripp: Father's an ex-con.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: And a concerned parent.
Detective Frank Tripp: A divorced parent. Soon as he got out, wife took off, left the kid behind. Told the neighbor she liked the guy fine enough, as long as he was in prison.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay. You think the kid did the same thing?
Detective Frank Tripp: No, I think Jeff's in the Keys with a cheerleader. I think he'll run out of money, stroll back in a couple of days with a hickey on his neck and a smile on his face.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: What if he doesn't?
Detective Frank Tripp: Well, I've got twelve confirmed dead yanking at my chain right now.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So you're not interested in the kid unless he's dead?
Detective Frank Tripp: You know what I mean.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay, Frank. Why don't you let me take this one off your hands?
Detective Frank Tripp: There's no crime scene to investigate.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Maybe not, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a crime.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: What do we have here? "Four-Twenty Boyz". Time to get high, I bet.
Eric Delko: [with a snort of laughter] How do you know that?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: My brother worked Narcotics undercover.

Principal Roland: Lieutenant Caine. Bill Roland. I'm the principal.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay, Bill. SWAT is on the way. Any sign of Jeff Wilton?
Principal Roland: None. He could have slipped into the assembly with the other students.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay, I'm going to need everybody out of the building right now.
Principal Roland: I don't want to create a panic.
[screaming is heard, followed by a fire alarm]
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Something just did, Bill. Everybody out. Everybody out, Bill!


"CSI: Miami: Entrance Wound (#1.12)" (2003)
Detective Christian Brunner: The only surprise there is the ex didn't find a stash of violent porn.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So you think his alibi is going to clear him, huh?
Detective Christian Brunner: Read the M.E.'s report again. She was killed at approximately seven p.m.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: "Approximately" seven p.m. Time of death is always the most fluid aspect of any crime. I mean, even you should know that.

Tim Speedle: You're trying to identify the DNA of the mold?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, I am. Which would mean the smear from the bungalow could only come from a single host colony, like the killer's bathroom.
Tim Speedle: Mold's a primitive organism.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: But if it's biological, it has DNA.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You have a forensics buff in the house.
Mrs. Bastille: They're Lee's. He can't get enough. I think they're disgusting. No... no offense.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [smiling] No, none taken.


"CSI: Miami: 48 Hours to Life (#4.4)" (2005)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Look at this high-velocity spatter right here. And more interesting is this.
Eric Delko: That's a partial print. It's a little low on the wall, isn't it?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Whoever did this slipped in the blood, and then attempted to break their fall with that print.
Eric Delko: Well, the print's on top of the spatter.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Means the blood had time to dry.
Eric Delko: Gives us a timeline.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We are to believe, Eric, that this kid killed this woman, waited for the spatter to dry, and then slipped and fell in the blood pool.
[Delko's phone chirps]
Eric Delko: That was Tripp. He says the kid just confessed.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: The kid confessed? That was quick.
Eric Delko: There's only forty-eight hours till his arraignment.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: In this system, that kid doesn't have forty-eight hours.

Michael Boland: I haven't been on my boat for three months.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That's an interesting choice of words, considering the boat is not registered to you.
Michael Boland: It was my wife's boat. She was trying to sell it. We're reorganizing.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You mean getting divorced.

Dr. Alexx Woods: Through-and-through. Bullet missed everything important. That means the gunshot wound didn't kill her.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So what did, Alexx?
Dr. Alexx Woods: I noticed this when her skin dried out. Skin's worn around her nose and mouth from friction. She wasn't just struggling for air, Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So, she was smothered.
Dr. Alexx Woods: That's what the evidence says.


"CSI: Miami: Out of Time (#8.1)" (2009)
[searching for Eric in the Everglades]
Calleigh Duquesne: What if he collapsed in the water?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: He's out here, Calleigh, and we're gonna find him.

[flashback to 1997]
Eric Delko: Detective Caine, I thought you were going to invest in a pair of sunglasses.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: And I thought you were going to find them for me, Eric.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We believe that a DNA test will confirm the blood found on Hollings will match the victim.
Evan Talbot: You have a pinhead-sized sample of blood. You can't run that for DNA.
Jesse Cardoza: For one test, we can.
Evan Talbot: Yeah, the defense has the right to run their own DNA test. And if you use the sample up, there's none left for them.
Jesse Cardoza: You're saying if we test it, we can't use it against the guy, and if we don't test it, we can't get the guy.
Evan Talbot: Yeah, that's the law. Excuse me, I have to be in court.
Jesse Cardoza: Well, the law just screwed us.


"CSI: Miami: Nothing to Lose (#3.16)" (2005)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We'd better find this crime scene quick before we get kicked out of here.
Eric Delko: Don't we have jurisdiction?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Conditions like this, the only one with jurisdiction... is the fire.

Fire Chief Kyle Donaldson: According to your own guy, the crime scene burned.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Chief, you and I both know that fire does not destroy all evidence.
Fire Chief Kyle Donaldson: We've got a major wildfire here. It's extremely dangerous.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: A man has been shot out here. If I don't process this crime scene immediately, somebody's gonna get away with murder.

Detective Yelina Salas: Hey. You sounded urgent. What's up?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Have a seat. Okay?
Detective Yelina Salas: Okay.
[Horatio and Yelina sit down]
Detective Yelina Salas: That look in your eyes. I've only seen it once before.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Suzie Barnam, Yelina.
Detective Yelina Salas: From the elevator. Yes, um... I already told you, you don't have to explain yourself.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I mentioned that there are complications with Suzie, didn't I? And there are.
Detective Yelina Salas: Yes?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Madison is not my daughter.
Detective Yelina Salas: What do you mean, not your daughter? She looks just like...
[realization dawns on Yelina]
Detective Yelina Salas: Ray?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, Yelina.
Detective Yelina Salas: But... how long have you known?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I've known all along.
Detective Yelina Salas: Then why... why tell me now?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Madison is sick. She needs a bone marrow transplant, and it turns out that I'm not a match. But she does need a relative as a donor.
Detective Yelina Salas: I'm no relative to that girl.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I know that.
Detective Yelina Salas: Ray Jr.? What Ray did is what Ray did. My son - his son - shouldn't have to pay for it. I won't let him.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yelina, the child could die.
Detective Yelina Salas: I can't.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Whether we like it or not, Madison is family.
Detective Yelina Salas: [firmly] Not my family.


"CSI: Miami: The Oath (#2.20)" (2004)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Rick, you're in my crime scene.

"CSI: Miami: Nailed (#4.8)" (2005)
Gary Hall: So, I'm human.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Too bad there isn't a swab to confirm that.

Detective Frank Tripp: I've gotta admit... divorce sucks!
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Frank... it's a killer.

Eric Delko: I never made it to the original crime scene; did you?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Five hours ago.


"CSI: Miami: Forced Entry (#1.14)" (2003)
Horatio Caine: An eye for an eye.
Leonard Murphy: I didn't start this.
Horatio Caine: No... no, you didn't start it, but you finished it.
Leonard Murphy: I wanted justice.
Horatio Caine: Leonard, justice is not for you to dispense. And now you're going to pay for it.

[upon finding dead male victim tied to bed, lying on stomach]
Detective Bernstein: No sign of forced entry
Horatio Caine: Oh I wouldn't be so sure of that
[camera pans over victim, showing him to be clad only in bathrobe]


"CSI: Miami: Death Grip (#2.4)" (2003)
Dr. Alexx Woods: Shame to have to kill an animal for doing what comes naturally.
Jeff Corwin: Guys, we can't kill this animal. I mean, it's endangered. It's Federally protected.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay. Let's irrigate its stomach, then.
Jeff Corwin: All right. Let's just see what he coughs up.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Listen, I don't want to rain on your parade, but how does child abduction sound to you?
David Kendall: Lana loves me. There's no abduction involved.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Is that right? I'm talking about Consuela Valdez. Sound familiar?
[Horatio notices David's reaction]
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Oh, your strings are tightening on that one, huh?
David Kendall: Look, I helped look for Consuela. That's...
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, you did. Yes, you did. And you transferred... you transferred fibers from her sweatshirt into Lana's bedroom.
David Kendall: Fibers?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes. I'm the fiber king, Dave. I'm the fiber king. So what do you want to do? Easy or hard, it's up to you.


"CSI: Miami: Triple Threat (#5.18)" (2007)
Dr. Alexx Woods: Shot in the light of day in a house filled with people? That's cold-blooded Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Correction Alexx. It's as cold... as ice.

[a man has been shot, then impaled on an ice sculpture]
Alexx Woods: Shot in the light of day in a house filled with people? That's cold-blooded, Horatio.
Horatio Caine: Correction Alexx. It's as cold... as ice.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Where's the boy?

Eric Delko: We're goin' home?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [matter of factly] We're going home!


"CSI: Miami: Bloodline (#5.19)" (2007)
Scott O'Shay: You can't pull me in here for every crime in Miami.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Not every crime. Just the ones you're guilty of.

Anna Sivarro: I didn't tell you a lot of things.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You were protecting your son, Anna. Like any good mother.


"CSI: Miami: From the Grave (#4.1)" (2005)
Horatio Caine: Here we go.

Horatio Caine: The FBI considers the Mala Noche the most dangerous crime organization in the United States, ladies and gentlemen. They stay away from drugs to avoid deportation, but what they specialize in is murder for hire, extortion... the list goes on. In short... they are Miami's new Mafia. Now, I must tell you that they have already killed six police officers.
Ryan Wolfe: Trying to scare us, Horatio?
Horatio Caine: Born in the Nicaraguan wars, they have no fear. So anyone not interested, I'll understand.
[Calleigh, Delko, and Wolfe all exchange glances]
Calleigh Duquesne: We're in if you're in.


"CSI: Miami: Prey (#4.3)" (2005)
Horatio Caine: You're going to jail.

IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Horatio, you and I need to have a conversation.
Horatio Caine: Now is not a good time, Rick.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Jennifer Wilson. Does the name ring a bell?
Horatio Caine: That's none of your business.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Well, see, you made it my business when you sent a patrol officer to sit on her house. You got no right authorizing overtime for a case that originated out of our jurisdiction.
Horatio Caine: Miss Wilson is a citizen of Miami and may be in grave danger.
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Yes, I know. I've familiarized myself with the case.
Horatio Caine: Well, then you know the story of a nine year old girl who lost her parents to a killer, don't you?
IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler: Ten years ago. New York, right? You're still trying to protect her.
Horatio Caine: That's the job.


"CSI: Miami: Last Straw (#10.14)" (2012)
Natalia Boa Vista: Sororities are not easy. Girls can be pretty petty and mean. And people hold grudges because of it.
Elle Toring: Yeah, I-I'm sorry. Um... I... I've been through a lot lately. I-I lost my job, I had to move home. It's just been really hard. I'm... I'm pathetic.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I don't agree with that.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mr. Toring, attempting to lie to me is an unwise practice.


"CSI: Miami: Complications (#2.11)" (2004)
[H talks to a doctor, who's a suspect]
Horatio Caine: Keith.
Dr. Keith Winters: That's "Doctor", Lieutenant.
Horatio Caine: Maybe not for long.

Detective Yelina Salas: Do you want me to pick up Dr. Winters?
Horatio Caine: No, I would hold off.
Detective Yelina Salas: Why? We just blew his alibi wide open.
Horatio Caine: You give somebody enough rope, they might hang themselves.


"CSI: Miami: Special Delivery (#9.17)" (2011)
Ryan Wolfe: Meet our vic, Doug Govoli. Based on the castoff, looks like our victim didn't go down easy. In fact, I'd say he put up a pretty good fight.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I would agree with that.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Mr. Holland, I recommend that your son leave the room.
Peter Holland: No. He's, uh... he's fine.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I strongly recommend that he leaves.
Peter Holland: He's my son.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Suit yourself. Were you aware that your wife was using her business to traffic heroin?
Nick Holland: Dad, what are they talking about?
Peter Holland: Nick, wait outside.
Nick Holland: You guys got it all wrong. Okay?
Peter Holland: Nick, go.
Nick Holland: Sheila didn't even drink alcohol!
Peter Holland: Just go!
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Nick, I'm sorry.
[Nick leaves]
Peter Holland: Well, that was one hell of a stunt.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I gave you two warnings, didn't I?


"CSI: Miami: Match Made in Hell (#9.10)" (2011)
Paul Nichols: [his head of security has been arrested] Torture? Why would he want to do that?
Eric Delko: Because Matthew was pursuing one of your girls and not paying your fees, and you didn't like that.
Paul Nichols: Good luck proving that.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That's what we do. And guess what? You're next.

Ricky Tobar: I said I'm not talking until my lawyer gets here.
Eric Delko: [laughs] Your lawyer? H, who do you think pays for this guy's lawyer?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That would be mister Paul Nichols, Ricky's boss.
Eric Delko: He's not your lawyer, Ricky. He's your boss's lawyer. He's here to protect your boss.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: By setting you up to take the fall, Ricky.
Eric Delko: Now, we know you attacked Matthew, and that's good for at least attempted. It's not too far from there to murder.


"CSI: Miami: Tinder Box (#1.22)" (2003)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We are dealing with a fire-starter, and they can be very - I repeat, very - unpredictable.

Fire Marshal Ronnie Jameson: Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Hey, Ronnie. You okay? What's the matter?
Fire Marshal Ronnie Jameson: I'm gonna resign. Wanted you to be the first to know.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Ronnie, you could not have prevented what happened in there.
Fire Marshal Ronnie Jameson: All those souls, Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I understand that. But we need more good men, not less. And now more than ever. You know that.


"CSI: Miami: Sudden Death (#9.2)" (2010)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: The girl humiliated you, and you wanted to do the same to her.
Richard Ellison: It stopped when she ran away. She was fine.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: She was not fine. She died from the champagne hours later.
Richard Ellison: I never meant to hurt her.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It's called... involuntary manslaughter.
Richard Ellison: I could go to prison for this?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I don't think you understand the situation. Your actions killed the girl.

Sarah Walker: What about Kristen? What about her body?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Kristen will go home, too, and rest in peace.
Sarah Walker: Maybe her family will find comfort in knowing that you caught the killer.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: That's the hope.


"CSI: Miami: Bone Voyage (#8.7)" (2009)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Jimmy, to avoid a date with the needle, you need to testify.

Calleigh Duquesne: We found her car in the Glades. Apparently, there's blood at the scene.

Calleigh Duquesne: You want to work it as a murder?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm trying to prevent one.


"CSI: Miami: Collision (#4.17)" (2006)
Rita Davis: Can I go now?
Horatio Caine: Let me see, how can I put this... no.

Horatio Caine: You've made your son an orphan.
Howard Benchley: He's still got a dad.
Horatio Caine: At this point, Howard, he doesn't think so.
Howard Benchley: Barb told him I was dead?
Horatio Caine: That's correct, and I understand her instinct.
Howard Benchley: You know, legally, I am still that boy's father.
Horatio Caine: That is true. But being someone's father... is not a right; it's a gift.


"CSI: Miami: Speed Kills (#3.8)" (2004)
Horatio Caine: You leave that to me.

Horatio Caine: Well, you know what they say, Frank: Speed kills.


"CSI: Miami: Witness to Murder (#2.12)" (2004)
[Tolson beat Eugene, a mentally retarded man, to death]
Pete Tolson: I did that guy a favor, man! That guy was a retard!
Horatio Caine: You know, Pete, Eugene had some things to overcome, I will give you that. But, you know what? You know what, Pete? At the end of the day, *he* just put *you* away for life.

Horatio Caine: You know sometimes... sometimes people look different in pictures.
Eugene Thomas Walter: Then how do you know it's them?
Horatio Caine: That... that is an excellent point.


"CSI: Miami: Freaks and Tweaks (#1.23)" (2003)
Bomb Tech: [about the bomb] Yeah, lucky for you. We're talking at least 16000 feet per second.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Really? It felt like 15.

Chaz: I know all about you. Lieutenant Horatio Caine. Homicide, bomb squad.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I run you in on something?
Chaz: I actually know your brother, Officer Raymond Caine. Well, I... I knew your brother. Big meth-head. God, he loved his crank, didn't he? You probably know that, don't you? Considering you had to do the mop-up on him after he checked out.


"CSI: Miami: Spring Break (#1.21)" (2003)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [their victim had come to Florida for spring break] It should have been the time of her life, Alexx. Not the end of it.

Amy Gorman: I swear, I already told you everything I remember, okay?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Amy?
Amy Gorman: You said my bite marks couldn't help. What's changed all of a sudden?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Actually, it's not all of a sudden. The blood from the bruising is absorbed back into the skin over time. Giving us a greater definition of the bite mark.
Amy Gorman: Teeth are like fingerprints. I know. I can't, I'm sorry. I just want to go back home and pretend none of this ever happened to me.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: And that's understandable.
Amy Gorman: You think I'm awful.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No, I don't. I think you're a human being. And that's okay.

Detective Jake Berkeley: Why'd you find that?

Detective Jake Berkeley: So did I.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, but in your case, you allowed the evidence to fit your theory, Jake, instead of the other way around.


"CSI: Miami: Law & Disorder (#10.18)" (2012)
Detective Frank Tripp: Well, the driver's sober. He said he didn't see the victim in the alleyway.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We got a cause of death?
Dr. Tom Loman: Her cervical vertebrae and lateral malleoli are crushed.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So she's got a broken neck.
Dr. Tom Loman: Not exactly. These injuries suggest she was already on the ground when run over. And look... frothing. And... ocular miosis.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Which tells you what?
Dr. Tom Loman: These are all symptoms of being poisoned by a nerve agent. Odds are, she was already dead when the car hit her.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So what you're saying is the car was unrelated to her death.
Dr. Tom Loman: She's cyanotic. I'd say she was poisoned minutes ago at most.
Detective Frank Tripp: Maybe the killer's still inside, Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Frank, lock it down. Nobody leaves.

Eric Delko: You bought for your entire cancer support group?
Marisol Delko: They're in so much pain, Eric. Most of them can't get around.
Eric Delko: How much, H?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Five bags total.
Eric Delko: Marisol, do you realize what you've done?
Marisol Delko: I did it for them.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Is he in the clear?
Eric Delko: Yeah. He had a credible explanation. Everything checked out.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: All right. In future, if you're going to watch somebody's back, let me know about it, so I can watch yours. All right?


"CSI: Miami: Dead Ringer (#10.8)" (2011)
Dr. Tom Loman: [about their victim] I'm afraid I have bad news. Liver temp's eighteen degrees below normal.

Natalia Boa Vista: We've been following Esteban for twenty-four.
Detective Frank Tripp: So he couldn't have done this.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You mean physically?
Patrick Lieber: Emotionally. Psychologically. I mean, you know how- what teenagers are like. Blaire was the worst kind of bully.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Why didn't you just suspend her?
Patrick Lieber: I tried. Her parents threatened a lawsuit, and the school made me back down.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm going to need the names of the students that complained, Mr. Lieber. Every one of them.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Alexx, what can you tell me?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Cause of death is asphyxiation due to suffocation.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: From being in a confined space?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Considered that, until I washed her.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: She's got bruising on both sides of her face.
Dr. Alexx Woods: From smothering. Her frenulum is torn. Classic signs.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Do we know what was used?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Maybe. Found some plastic material on her shoulder.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Okay. Bound, kept in a confined space. This sounds like kidnapping, Alexx.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Seems odd to kidnap someone, then dump the body in a public place.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, we are applying reason to an unreasonable act, aren't we?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Unreasonable acts are all I see.

Eric Delko: I was a little freaked out about my boss seeing my sister. But, um... seeing how happy she is, I can't argue with it.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: No concerns?
Eric Delko: No. None for her. But you need to know that she's a lot sicker than she looks. Doctors think, um... months. Can you live with that?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I can.


"CSI: Miami: Fallen (#9.1)" (2010)
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Keith, listen to me. When someone lies to me, it really, really hurts my feelings. You're Starling's boy. You've been with him the whole time, right? Go.
Eric Delko: How did he get you to do it? Money?
Keith Garwood: You cops are all the same. You think people are just motivated by money.
Eric Delko: We know you worship Starling. How did he convince you to kill a cop?
Keith Garwood: What are you talking about? Nobody said...
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: A police officer was killed. A police officer was murdered. That's on you. In the state of Florida, Keith, it's a mandatory death sentence.

Vince Kessler: Uh, I didn't.
Detective Frank Tripp: You molded it yourself, idiot.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Which means we can match it to you.
Vince Kessler: Look, not my finest hour, I will admit that.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: It's also gonna bring you an assault charge.
Vince Kessler: Look, Connie was a monster on the track. Okay, the only chance my team had of winning is if she wasn't playing. All right? Besides, ipecac is harmless.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Unlike the beating you gave her.
Vince Kessler: No, I didn't. I just- I wanted to get her a little sick so she couldn't play.
Detective Frank Tripp: You got money riding on this?
Vince Kessler: No, I just want to see my team win.
Detective Frank Tripp: Well, I'm the biggest sports fan you'll ever meet, but that is just plain stupid.

"CSI: Miami: Wannabe (#2.18)" (2004)
Dr. Alexx Woods: Brutal murder. Broad daylight in the middle of the Grove. Thought I'd seen it all. Paramedics sure left a mess.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: They certainly did. So, we have a frozen crime scene. What about preliminary?
Dr. Alexx Woods: Multiple stab wounds. Paramedics said they worked on him for twenty minutes. He was a fighter.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, he was a fighter. And he was a runner, too, wasn't he? The blood runs all the way back to the house. Which means the killer followed him down here to finish the job.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Anyone see anything?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Well, we have four eyewitnesses and four different stories.
Dr. Alexx Woods: Typical.

"CSI: Miami: Slaughterhouse (#1.8)" (2002)

State Attorney Rebecca Nevins: Yeah. No one can find her, which helps Kyle, of course.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'll send my team up there right now.
State Attorney Rebecca Nevins: Thank you, Horatio.
[Nevins leaves, and Julia approaches]
Julia Winston: Did I hear her say her witness is missing?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: You did. Where's Kathleen, Julia?
Julia Winston: Why are you asking me that?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I'm asking you because you petitioned for custody this morning hours before this proceeding.
Julia Winston: Of course I did. I'd do anything for him now.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: And that's my point.


"CSI: Miami: Tunnel Vision (#6.18)" (2008)

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So it's him again, isn't, Walter?
Walter Simmons: Yup. Makes it what, ten big games that he's hit so far? Wonder how much he got away with this time. One, maybe two million? Huh... All right, so the chandelier must have gotten hit when the robber opened fire. Dropped on this poor bastard who picked the wrong seat, crushing him to death.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Maybe not, Walter. That's a bullet hole.
Walter Simmons: Look at that. Sure is. Glass from the broken chandelier bulbs inside the wound means that he was shot before the chandelier fell on him.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Collateral damage from the shooting.
Walter Simmons: Guy's never shot anybody before, H. He's making mistakes.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Yes, he is, Walter. And we all pay for our mistakes.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Need I remind you that perjury is a felony, and you're facing five years.
Lloyd Arrington: Yeah, I want a lawyer.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: What did we get?
Jesse Cardoza: I dug up underlying court documents related to the Sloan divorce. Affidavit of the minor Jason Sloan.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [seeing a picture of Jason with a black eye] The little boy.
Jesse Cardoza: There was a history of abuse. Beatings. At first, the boy admitted his dad's the one who knocked him around, then he recanted. And Child Services said the only reason he recanted because he feared his father, and the judge agreed. Matthew Sloan lost custody three weeks ago.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: This is the justice that Matthew was looking for.
Jesse Cardoza: [nodding towards Arrington] You know, that guy lied about getting the TRO. Maybe he's the abuser.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: There's only one way to find out.
Jesse Cardoza: Follow the evidence.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: She was murdered and buried on a property.
Chief Judge Joseph Ratner: Now Caine, where'd you dig that up?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Gary Logan's backyard, your honor.
Chief Judge Joseph Ratner: Now that's what happened to that girl! She did call a few times, yes, said she was my daughter. But why should I believe a teenage runaway...
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [cuts him off angrily] That's why you paid Gary Logan to have her killed.
Chief Judge Joseph Ratner: All right Caine, that's enough. I've had enough of your accusations, you get out of my chambers!
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I hate to inform you, your honor, that these are NO LONGER your chambers.
Chief Judge Joseph Ratner: [smugly] Now you know there's no way you're gonna prove all this in court.

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: [seeing their victim at the crime scene] Dr. Loman. I think we can safely say "overkill".

Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Speaking of which, Low Dawg Productions, Clavo.
Clavo Cruz: I got no idea what you're talking about, but the Vienna Convention - that's still for shizzle.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: I don't care about your diplomat father. Are you smuggling drugs into South Florida?
Clavo Cruz: Drugs?
