"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Lab Rats (#7.20)" (2007)
Henry Andrews: So, we're looking for an obsessive, meticulous, dark assed misanthrope who seeks recognition for his efforts.
[Wendy and Henry both look towards Hodges who is sorting his chips and carrots in three neat piles]
Hodges: [without looking up] When would I find the time? I'm always here.

Wendy Simms: Well, we're working under the assumption that the killer was a foster kid, right? With probably an abusive childhood, so, a bloody baby doll. I mean, it's really not much of a stretch to say the doll represents the killer.
Hodges: Grissom had something on that.
[opens case file]
Hodges: "Freud's theory on the uncanny raises the point that as children we want the doll to come to life. But as adults, we are terrified by the idea. The doll could represent the uncanny that is feared. The Sandman."
Wendy Simms: Right, or exactly what I just said.

Henry Andrews: Can I have a chip?
Hodges: [quickly] No.

Hodges: This is exactly why I didn't invite you to join us: you take over everything.
Wendy Simms: I ...
Hodges: [cutting her off] Grissom asked me to gather some techs to review the miniature cases, like a think-tank.
Wendy Simms: Yeah, I know they told me. So... kudos to you.
Hodges: I hand selected them with careful consideration to group dynamics.
Wendy Simms: Well, I can see that. I mean it's you and your backup singers. You're Davy Hodges and the Lemmings.
[with fake enthusiasm]
Wendy Simms: You should take your act out on the road.
Henry Andrews: [off screen] We can hear you.
Wendy Simms: Look, the only reason you don't like me is because I actually stand up to you, which by the way is exactly what you need. I mean, come on, you know I'd be good at all this miniature stuff.
Hodges: That's not the only reason.
Wendy Simms: Really? Okay, what is it?
Hodges: You think you're too cool.
Wendy Simms: Oh my God, what are we, twelve?
Hodges: I don't know, are we?
Wendy Simms: [steps toward him] I don't know, are we?

Wendy Simms: Look, the only reason you don't like me is because I actually stand up to you, which by the way is exactly what you need. I mean, come on, you know I'd be good at all this miniature stuff.
Hodges: That's not the only reason.
Wendy Simms: Really? Okay, what is it?
Hodges: You think you're too cool.
Wendy Simms: Oh my God, what are we, twelve?
Hodges: I don't know, are we?
Wendy Simms: I don't know, are we?
[Hodges doesn't answer]

Archie Johnson: Later betties.
Hodges: Quitter.
Archie Johnson: Glory whore.

Hodges: [on seeing Greg covered in spaghetti sauce] Some garlic bread, some nice Chianti maybe?
Greg Sanders: Kiss my ass. I'd like to see you crawl around a dumpster, determining the difference between blood and marinara sauce, with six mobster goons giving you the stink eye.

Hodges: What?
Wendy Simms: That was a very good idea.
Hodges: Well, I have one occasionally.

Hodges: [after Wendy uses Hodges' phone to call the suspected M.K] Nice one Simms, now they have my cell phone number.

Henry Andrews: [sometime after Wendy uses Hodges phone to call the killer's phone it starts ringing] Did you guys see "Scream"?
Hodges: [giving him a look but attempting to disguise his voice] Hello?... Oh, hi, Catherine. Have I seen Wendy? No, she hasn't been at her desk all day.
Wendy Simms: Gimme.
Hodges: Let me go look... for her.
[Wendy grabs the phone]
Hodges: Oh... Oh wait here she is.
Wendy Simms: Loser.

Hodges: What's this?
Wendy Simms: You frickin' broke it! That's destroying evidence
Hodges: I can fix it

Greg Sanders: Have any of you guys seen Grissom?
[Henry, Hodges and Wendy turn around and hide the miniature]
Hodges: [they shake their heads no] Some garlic bread? Some wine maybe?
Greg Sanders: Kiss my ass. I'd like to see you crawl around in a dumpster determining the difference between blood and marinara sauce with six mobster goons giving you the stink eye
Henry Andrews: Don't know anything about that, were held up in a lab all day
Greg Sanders: What are you guys doing? You know what forget it, I don't even care. I have to go take a shower, would one of you please call janitorial and have them clean my Denali?
Wendy Simms: Sure
Greg Sanders: Oh and I think the killer might have thrown up in the alley, full panel. Enjoy.

Wendy Simms: What on god's green earth possessed you to do this?
Hodges: It was my lucky day.
Wendy Simms: What?
Hodges: It's my lucky day
Hodges: [music plays and a flashback of Hodges walking toward the crime lab appears. He finds a dollar on the ground then looks up to see a pretty woman walking by him while smiling at him. He puts the dollar in a vending machine and buys lucky chips and while going to get them two more bags fall. Then he walks into his lab and checks his email and the Three's company board game he bidded on is his. Then his results print out and he got a match of 1 out of 600 billion] When you walked away it was like the stars aligned, it was my lucky day.
Wendy Simms: Lucky? You're a scientist.
Hodges: I was trying to help Grissom
Wendy Simms: C'mon if Gil Grissom were here he'd slap your face

Hodges: Four people are dead, the killer is still out there and you're mocking?
Mandy Webster: We're mocking you.

Hodges: You in or you out?
Henry Andrews: Well I don't really know anything about these cases.
Hodges: We'll review.
Henry Andrews: I don't know, I have a lot of work to do.
Hodges: And by work you mean IM-ing your Islandic penpal, who thinks you look like Warrick Brown, because that's the picture you posted.
Henry Andrews: How...
Hodges: I just know.

Henry Andrews: [Wendy walks into door frame]
Henry Andrews: Red dog barks at midnight.
Wendy Simms: What are you guys doing in here?
Hodges: Nothing
[everybody starts to leave the room]
Wendy Simms: [Hodges confronts Wendy] Alright freak boy, your phone has been ringing off the hook, so I finally answered it and Warrick and Nick said they have a ton off trace and they need you to clear the desks.
Hodges: No problem. After you.
Wendy Simms: After you.
Hodges: [walks away]
[Wendy stands at the door looking into the room puzzled]

Hodges: It's time to start thinking outside the box.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Theory of Everything (#8.15)" (2008)
Gil Grissom: Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.
Hodges: Winston Churchill.
Gil Grissom: Ian Fleming.

Wendy Simms: What do you think turned it green?
Hodges: It might be sulfur.
Wendy Simms: Sulfur is a naturally occurring component of blood.
Hodges: But in massive doses, it tends to turn blood a blackish, avocado green. When the sulfur atom attaches to the hemoglobin molecule, it turns green. Which is why First Officer Spock's blood is green in Star Trek.
Wendy Simms: No, it's not.
Hodges: Yes, it is. Trust me, I'm an expert.
Wendy Simms: Well, apparently not, because otherwise you would surely know that the oxidizing agent in Vulcan blood is copper and that is why his blood is green. I mean that and the fact that he had a Vulcan father since his mother was actually human. And furthermore, he was promoted to Captain just prior to Star Trek II and then he retired as a civilian ambassador.
Hodges: You're like a geeky, nerdy guy trapped in a woman's body.
Wendy Simms: So are you.

Hodges: Anytime you need a sniffer to detect it, my nose has the cyanide gene.
Gil Grissom: What gene turned your nose brown?

Catherine Willows: [Referring to a burned spot on the floor] Now, get down and sniff the rug.
Hodges: That's all they ever want.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Lost Reindeer (#14.11)" (2013)
David Hodges: Aren't vaguely Dickensian suburban kids Russell's department?

Morgan Brody: Why do you think Santa hanging out here all by his lonesome after the party?
David Hodges: He was probably recovering from the forced celebration of a hyper commercialized holiday that lost all sense of wonder
Morgan Brody: Wow, sounds like somebody got a lot of coal in his stocking as a kid
David Hodges: I wish! Instead of regaling me with stories of Santa, my scientist father lectured me on the impossibilities of the whole thing
Morgan Brody: What? He didn't think a fat man in his sled could make it around the world in one night?
David Hodges: He also had a problem with the climate damage caused by toy factories on the North Pole
Morgan Brody: Gosh, I hope I don't have you as my Secret Santa!

Captain Jim Brass: He'll only talk to one person
Nick Stokes: Who?
David Hodges: Me? Last time I saw him, I scared him!
Morgan Brody: He said he wanna to talk to, and I quote: 'The Funny Science Man'
David Hodges: A compliment, I suppose

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Big Shots (#7.19)" (2007)
Catherine Willows: Don't tell me you're tired of the field already.
Hodges: No, I had to catch up on my Perez Hilton.
Catherine Willows: I take it you're not going to pull a Sanders, then?
Hodges: Let's see... Clean friendly lab, bullet strewn- urine soaked street? That's a tough call.

Gil Grissom: [looking at a bullet casing] Fifty caliber, casing looks new. I bet it's from a Desert Eagle.
Hodges: Or a coffee shop. I could drink an espresso out of that thing.

Hodges: I was right. This is a lot like garbage collecting.
Greg Sanders: You're not helping Hodges.
Hodges: I have no intention to. Field rotation for the lab techs was Ecklie's idea. He was very explicit that I was only allowed to observe.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Field Mice (#10.18)" (2010)
Henry Andrews: Remember that time you said that thing about your having a higher commitment to the lab and the pursuit of justice?
David Hodges: Yeah, I may have said that more than once.
Henry Andrews: Yeah, you have.

David Hodges: Car trouble?
Henry Andrews: Yeah, no kidding. This ruins my whole lunch break and I had things to do!
David Hodges: You know, Henry, maybe you should stay out of parking garages. Bad things seem to happen to you there.

Wendy Simms: Hey. I saw you and Henry in the hall earlier and...
David Hodges: Look, I haven't been messing with Henry. I'm not trying to spoil your date and I hope that you guys have a very nice life together.
Wendy Simms: I really wasn't trying to blame you for anything. I was just checking in.
David Hodges: Why are your hands in your pockets?
Wendy Simms: [awkwardly] Because I'm socially awkward and it gives me a sense of security.
David Hodges: [throws a cardboard box at her head. When she doesn't take her hands out, he continues] You know, after Henry accused me I suspected that someone was trying to pin their practical jokes on me so... I mixed up a little something called "Detection Spray" and I put it all over the surfaces that I thought Henry would most vulnerable to pranks, including his locker. It's essentially a ninhydrin solution that goes on clear and reacts with the amino salts in perspiration, leaving a stain on anyone who touches it. And the more that the person tries to wash it off, the more the stain spreads.
Wendy Simms: That's really fascinating - I should go.
[starts to leave]
David Hodges: I can last up to five days. You may want to wear a dress with pockets tonight.
Wendy Simms: [stops and turns around. After a moment, she takes her hands out and shows him the stain] I'm not proud of this.

Catherine Willows: Well, if you have to ask - it's just friends.
David Hodges: She's making dinner for me this weekend.
Catherine Willows: Are you the only guest?
David Hodges: Do her roommates count?
[Catherine looks at him significantly]

David Hodges: I was just having the greatest dream.
Warrick Brown: You were out.
David Hodges: It was the 80's and I had this Don Johnson beard, you know, the "Miami Vice" stubble. It just gave me this air of danger. My lady loved it.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Empty Eyes (#7.18)" (2007)
Hodges: [leaving message on Sara's phone] Sara, the knife tip Doc Robbins extracted from Becca Mayford isn't metal, it's ceramic and extremely sharp. I accept thank you in advance, and you're welcome.

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

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Invisible Evidence (#4.7)" (2003)
David Hodges: Hey, I heard about court today. Must have been embarrassing, huh?
Warrick Brown: Hodges, why'd you leave L.A. again? Never mind, it's probably none of my business.

Gil Grissom: If you need someone to talk to...
David Hodges: Yeah. When's a good time?
Gil Grissom: We have a psychologist here on Tuesdays and Fridays.

"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.

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.

David Hodges: Oh, and by the way, uh, this is just the work me. You haven't had the full David Hodges experience.
Greg Sanders: I think I'm having it right now.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Swap Meet (#5.5)" (2004)
Hodges: It's a good thing you don't need to pass a spelling test to work the field, "funtain" water?
Greg Sanders: My people are Norwegian, that's how we spell it. So was the funtain water in her lungs?

Greg Sanders: ...so she dies in a pool?
Hodges: Or a spa. And by the way, that's spelled S-P-A, in any language.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Play with Fire (#3.22)" (2003)
David Hodges: [sucking up to Grissom] Hey, boss. Just analyzed the evidence found on your vic's rent-a-car!
Gil Grissom: You should be telling Nick or Sara.
David Hodges: [brushes it aside] Yeah, couldn't find them. They must be on another break. Anyway, the blister pack is methadone. 40 milligrams, former smack addict dose. And that ceramic chip? Not ceramic. It's acrylic with a quartz resin composite used primarily in dental crowns. Cheap ones.
Gil Grissom: Good work.
David Hodges: Yeah, thank you. Listen, I'd like to think that you and I...
Gil Grissom: [cutting him off] Now go tell Nick or Sara.

David Hodges: I'd lawyer up before I'd let you pin the tail on the new donkey!

Hodges: I just finished a diabolical sudoku in six minutes flat. I'm positive.

Hodges: [on seeing Nick's shirt covered in blood] Have you been shaving with a broken beer bottle?
Nick Stokes: No, no. Some drunk driver ran into a radio car at my crime scene, freaking idiot.

Nick Stokes: Nothing was on fire, and I didn't pull anybody from anywhere.
Hodges: Ah, so humble. You know some people are just destined for greatness.

[about pool chalk]
Hodges: The abrasives give grip to the tip, when it hits the ball.

Hodges: [suggestively] Mmm!
Catherine Willows: [flatly] Don't.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Unusual Suspect (#6.18)" (2006)
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.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Buzz Kill (#15.2)" (2014)
Morgan Brody: Well, I know Nick is the expert, but this just looks like a common crane-fly to me. They're everywhere in Vegas, I don't know how they're going help us any point to advance them. You have better luck on your site?
David Hodges: You mean: am I having any better luck with the bird excrement? It's not lost on me that of all the trace you pulled, you gave me the poop!

[Grissom looks at her]

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Weeping Willows (#5.22)" (2005)
David Hodges: The metallic balls would've been released into the air during the welding process.
Gil Grissom: So you're saying our killer has metal balls?

Nick Stokes: Grissom wants you to compare adhesives. He's looking for a match.
[Nick glances for whom Hodges is casting about]
Hodges: Ok. That'll take a laser ablation test. That's good.
Nick Stokes: Why's that good?
Hodges: Well, laser ablation is both visual *and* dramatic.
Nick Stokes: Are you looking for the video crew right now?
Hodges: [scoffs] I would think they would be looking for *me*.
Nick Stokes: Relax, man, their show is only an hour long; laser ablation takes, like, six.
Hodges: Yeah, but when they cut it together, it'll only take 30 seconds.
[Nick smiles, amused, and leaves]
Hodges: [30-second montage of laser ablation preparation and FX]

Gil Grissom: Hodges...
David Hodges: Guys like us just don't get to hang it up. This job is who we are. We are the thin blue line between order and chaos. You take yourself out of the equation, who knows what's gonna happen. That's the Butterfly Effect. You taught me that. The bad guys will win more if we don't have you. Who is Watson without Sherlock Holmes?
Gil Grissom: Watson was a genius in his own right... It's the right time for me to go.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Ending Happy (#7.21)" (2007)
Greg Sanders: You know, I kind of feel bad for these girls.
Hodges: Don't feel too bad. They have health benefits, good pay. The women get regular check-ups. The industry is well-regulated. As opposed to picking a hooker up off the street. Does she have a disease? Multiple diseases? Is she crazy? Is she gonna roll you? Where do you go? Do you do it in your car, behind a building, down a dark alley? So you drive around, scared out of your mind, finally get the nerve up, pick one you like, call her over, she gets in. Next thing you know, you're down on the pavement, cuffed, because she's an undercover cop, but luckily you were three months shy of your eighteenth birthday so when you call your mom to come get you, it doesn't go on my permanent record.

[Hodges does so]
Gil Grissom: From the other side.

David Hodges: I started recording my garbage in a trash journal. So now I discard no more than 3 pounds per week
Morgan Brody: You have a trash journal?
David Hodges: Yah!

Hodges: [after Sara has just completed an explanation on a bug] Since when did you become an insects expert?

Nick Stokes: [smirking] Funny, I didn't get a Christmas gift from Grissom...
[turns to Hodges]
Nick Stokes: Did you...?
Hodges: [also smirking] No...
[Sara gives them both a weird look]

Greg Sanders: Well, did the robe help?
David Hodges: It did! I think I know what the witched cooked in the Wiccan kitchen. And if you step into my Wiccan kitchen, I'll be happy to explain.
