"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Iced (#5.23)" (2005)
Detective Vartann: Homicide called you guys over an hour ago. 4-19 at the Tangiers. No one's responded. Not even the coroner... Both shifts are tapped.
Conrad Ecklie: Did you check
Detective Vartann: [interrupts] I checked the board. No one's available
[pause]
Detective Vartann: except for you.
Conrad Ecklie: I'm the Assistant Lab Director.
Detective Vartann: I know. But you're still qualified to process a scene, right?
Conrad Ecklie: Yes, I am.
[unwillingly]
Conrad Ecklie: I'll dust off my kit. Meet you there.

Conrad Ecklie: I was just thinking, David, I've lost my keys, sunglasses, even a wallet.
David Phillips: Sir, this really isn't my fault.
Conrad Ecklie: But I've never lost a body.
David Phillips: I didn't do anything.
Conrad Ecklie: Find him, Phillips, or this goes on your record.
David Phillips: What would you like me to do?
Conrad Ecklie: Get out! Get out! Out!

Gil Grissom: And this must be Mr. Billmeyer. I'm so glad he's back.
Conrad Ecklie: Very funny.
Gil Grissom: You might want to have Hodges analyze that cigar. Oh, and the print tech is free. He could, ah, spray the party hat with ninhydrin.
Conrad Ecklie: I think I remember how to do my job, Gil, thank you.
Gil Grissom: I love it when you wear your gloves.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Nesting Dolls (#5.13)" (2005)
[last lines]
Grissom: [about Sara] She's a great criminalist, Conrad. And I need her.
Conrad Ecklie: I'm sure you do. You know what? She's a loose cannon with a gun. And she's all yours.

Conrad Ecklie: You are a law enforcement officer, and a representative of this city, that means I expect you to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner in and away from this lab.
Catherine Willows: You know what, if this is gonna be one of your "for the good of the lab" speeches, don't bother. I've heard them.
Conrad Ecklie: Just, take a seat.
[Sara doesn't sit]
Conrad Ecklie: Willows is a supervisor which means you treat her with respect, insulting her in front of coworkers...
Catherine Willows: She's not my supervisor.
Conrad Ecklie: ...Alright, your superior. Sara, you berate witnesses, you disrespect the people you work with, you luck your way out of a DUI take a look! You've got a half a dozen complaints in your jacket. And if Grissom *really* documented your performance there'd probably be a dozen more. That's not the kind of person I want in my lab!
Catherine Willows: The only reason this is "your" lab is because Grissom doesn't kiss ass. You couldn't hack it in the field so you fail your way up, you break up our team, and now you just hang out in the hallways waiting for one of us to screw up!
Conrad Ecklie: Sidle, you're on one week's suspension without pay.
Catherine Willows: Great.
Conrad Ecklie: And when you get back you're apologizing to Catherine.
Catherine Willows: [frankly and with a smile] No I'm not.

Conrad Ecklie: I thought I was clear.
Grissom: You were. Now let me be clear. Sara's behavior is a direct result of my management.
Conrad Ecklie: So I should fire you.
Grissom: But you won't.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Unusual Suspect (#6.18)" (2006)
Conrad Ecklie: [to Nick] Good news is Judge Crawford denied the defense's motion to dismiss.
Nick Stokes: Of course he did. She's just a mixed-up kid trying to protect her older brother. All the evidence points to Marlon.
Conrad Ecklie: Yeah, and all the jury's going to remember is a little girl in a bloody shirt confessing to murder. That's reasonable doubt on a silver platter.

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

Conrad Ecklie: No, I not want your resign, I want you to fix this!


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: A Bullet Runs Through It: Part 2 (#6.8)" (2005)
Catherine Willows: So just how did the meeting with the undersheriff go?
Conrad Ecklie: Worse than the dentist. Better than the proctologist.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Secrets & Flies (#6.6)" (2005)
Gil Grissom: The science in these textbooks is sound, but the tape is more than enough to get reasonable doubt.
Conrad Ecklie: Well, there's no doubt in my mind that Thayer worked his science to get the answers the defense needed.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Blood Drops (#1.7)" (2000)
Conrad Ecklie: That's a career killer.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: King Baby (#5.15)" (2005)
Captain Jim Brass: Welcome to the party.
Catherine Willows: [to Grissom & Ecklie] What's going on? This is my scene.
Conrad Ecklie: High profile case - woke up the supervisors. All hands on deck, Cath. Grissom's lead on this, he's the senior supervisor... I'm an administrator, I run interference for you guys. Starting with the press.
Gil Grissom: It's nothing personal, Catherine. Cases like these rain down hard, you need all the help you can get.
Catherine Willows: I need help. Not supervision.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Grave Danger: Part 1 (#5.24)" (2005)
Conrad Ecklie: I'm proposing we eliminate all overtime on lab work except for priority cases, stop hiring based on attrition, reassign existing personnel based on peak staffing needs. Over the next fiscal year, that should clear at least a million.
Undersheriff McKeen: Assuming any of those measures actually saves money, which isn't really the issue here, is it?
Conrad Ecklie: I'll take the heat.
Undersheriff McKeen: You want to do something for your people? Get them ready for a funeral.
