Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: [walking into the room] How are you doing?

Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: As a matter of fact, I would.

"CSI: NY: Stealing Home (#2.22)" (2006)

Dr. Sid Hammerback: [to Hawkes] You ever have a threesome? It's not as glorious as you might imagine. It's complicated in dealing with different personalities and hey, sometimes you're just not in the mood, if you know what I mean. It's hard enough explaining that to one woman, let alone two.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: [interrupting] Sid.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [continuing] And then there's...
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Sid.
[motions the body]
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Anything else?

Dr. Sid Hammerback: [Sid and Peyton are flipping a coin to see who gets to do the autopsy on Pauline Rayburn. Peyton wins] It's heads. She's yours. Can - can I at least watch? This is one of the most well preserved mummies I've seen in my many years as a pathologist. The environmental conditions of temperature and humidity and ventalation must have been just, you know, optimum. You can only compare it to the best sex you've ever had, reaching climax at percisly that-that...
Dr. Peyton Driscoll: [Interrupting] Alright, Sid, you can help. But I get to print her.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Fair enough.

The natural degradation of the human body made it unappealing, even in the most deviant of men. Why someone would want to have sex with a lifeless body in the first place is...
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: [Interrupting] Sid.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: I mean it's counterintuitive...
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Sid.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: What?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: You're going to that creepy place again.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [Shrugs and nods] Okay.

Sid Hammerback: I just sold the patent this morning.
Jo Danville: Well, congratulations. That's good, isn't it?
Sid Hammerback: Oh, yeah. Um, it was purchased by a Japanese firm. Apparently, they're going to market it as an anti-snoring pillow.
Jo Danville: Anti-snoring, huh? God, I could have used that with my ex-husband. I would've paid dearly for that.
Sid Hammerback: [choking up] Yep. That's pretty much what they did.
Jo Danville: Sid, are you okay?
Sid Hammerback: [still emotional] Uh... actually, no. I'm, um... incredible. Jo, they bought my patent... for $27 million.
Jo Danville: What?
Sid Hammerback: I'm a very rich man, and-and I have no idea what to do about it.

Dr. Sid Hammerback: Mm-hmm. Brett Hollister, age twenty-five. Suffered blunt force laryngeal trauma resulting in complete cricotracheal separation.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Water in the lungs?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Uh, trace amounts. He stopped breathing before the truck sank. I imagine he floated up through the open hatch. Sadly, victim number three wasn't quite as fortunate.
[an ME assistant hands Sid a folder]
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Thank you. Uh... an elevated blood alcohol content caused vasodilation of her blood vessels, there exacerbating the onset of hypothermia.

Detective Lindsay Monroe: Constipation, swelling of the feet, help getting up from a chair, constant urination. Want to switch?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: I already have all of that. I just want the time off.


"CSI: NY: Can You Hear Me Now? (#4.1)" (2007)
Detective Mac Taylor: [about Charles Price's killer] He was the killer's ticket off the island. Uniformed security escort, no questions asked. Then when he wasn't needed any longer, Charles was the next victim.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: The killer followed through on his threat. "Two more will die".
Detective Mac Taylor: No, I don't think so, Sid. Charles and Georgia surprised him. That means they were unexpected casualties of the original plan.


"CSI: NY: The Triangle (#5.10)" (2008)
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: [to Sid as he heats up an organ] You workin' up an apetite?

Dr. Sid Hammerback: Mac, been meaning to ask. I'd like you to consider coming to our house for Thanksgiving this year. My daughter's coming in, cousins from Philly. We do a really nice job. I use a Collins scalpel to carve the bird, it gets the meat paper thin.
Detective Mac Taylor: I appreciate the offer, Sid.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Now you can't spend the holidays alone again. I'll drag you if I have to.
Detective Mac Taylor: You're gonna have to add some meat to that skinny frame of yours if you're gonna be making threats, and I was about to say I do have plans this year, thank you.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [pause] Oh. I'm intrigued.

Dr. Sid Hammerback: [about hydrofluoric acid] Do you have any idea how often I've wondered what would happen if you swallowed this stuff? There it is, sitting on the shelf, perhaps the most corrosive acid known to man. You just get that urge to take a swig! You know what I'm talking about?
Det. Mac Taylor: Absolutely. It's like, whenever I pick up a scalpel, I wonder if I could perform a live autopsy on myself.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [excited] You do that too? Because I thought I was...
[realizes that Mac is joking]
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Don't play with me like that!


"CSI: NY: Hung Out to Dry (#3.4)" (2006)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [to Mac and Hawkes] The rawness of the flesh indicates she was alive during the beheading, but I bet she didn't feel a thing. Her blood alcohol level was 0.26 - blotto. The highest I've ever registered was 0.23, but that was in celebration of my first divorce. I fell down a flight of stairs, didn't feel a thing.


"CSI: NY: Rush to Judgement (#5.13)" (2009)
Danny Messer: [during an autopsy of a decapitated man] Mr. Potato Head! The live version.
Detective Lindsay Monroe: More like the bloody, dead version!
Dr. Sid Hammerback: I used to play with Mr. Potato Head as a boy. I would time myself, see how long it took to assemble him. Some would say I was... obsessed!
Danny Messer: You? Obsessed? Nooo!


"CSI: NY: The Box (#5.9)" (2008)
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Found a piece of jewelry, in pretty good shape.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Based on age, I'd say they're probably the victim's parents.

Lindsay Monroe Messer: Hey Sid, have you ever seen someone punch herself in the face?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Uh, no... Are you going to punch yourself in the face?
Lindsay Monroe Messer: Uh, let me try that again. Have you ever had a victim on your table who's exhibited self-inflicted punch wounds to the face?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Uh, well, I've pretty much seen it all, but no, I have not come across anyone who has successfully punched herself to death.


"CSI: NY: Personal Foul (#4.19)" (2008)

"CSI: NY: YoungBlood (#2.6)" (2005)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: You miss us? The ME's life?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Yeah, but I like being in the field. In here, all I ever saw was the victim, out there... I see the crime.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: I like it in here.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Why is that?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: It's quiet.


"CSI: NY: Unwrapped (#8.17)" (2012)
Det. Mac Taylor: What do you got for me, Sid?
Sid Hammerback: If I had a nickel for every time I heard that question. I'm afraid I've spoiled everyone around here over the years. The age-old tradition of the investigator being present at autopsy is to answer questions that might assist the medical examiner, moi, in determining the cause and mode of death, not the other way around.
Det. Mac Taylor: Well, that's what the book says, but I don't think they knew about Sid Hammerback when they wrote it. You always have more answers than questions. That's why you're the best.
Sid Hammerback: Flattery will get you everywhere.


"CSI: NY: Risk (#2.13)" (2006)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Sorry for the delay, QT and I were necking.
Detective Stella Bonasera: Come again?
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Necking... looking at his neck.
Detective Stella Bonasera: [makes sound of understanding and slight relief]
Dr. Sid Hammerback: You don't think I would kiss a corpse, do you?
Detective Stella Bonasera: No, no. Of course not.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: That's disgusting.
Detective Stella Bonasera: I agree.
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Long as we got that straight.
Detective Stella Bonasera: Sid, cause of death?


"CSI: NY: Love Run Cold (#3.3)" (2006)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: Cause of death was not natural. He was in superb shape, lungs, heart, all vital organs are near perfect.
Detective Mac Taylor: So you're saying... he's actually still alive?


"CSI: NY: Sangre por Sangre (#7.4)" (2010)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: They say there are six million ways to die. Panthro Torres chose three. Official C.O.D. is cerebral hemorrhaging from a cracked skull due to his head hitting the awning. Had he survived that, he certainly would have succumbed to exsanguination from impalement. Not a bad way to go, considering option number three: a ruptured vena cava, courtesy of a fragmented .45.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Somehow, "ouch" doesn't quite cover it.


"CSI: NY: The Party's Over (#5.15)" (2009)
Dr. Sid Hammerback: [Stella is wearing an cocktail dress and carrying a brown paper evidence bag] You might have chosen a different bag to go with that dress.
Detective Stella Bonasera: You think?
