In the opening of the episode during the investigation of a horse trainer found dead in the cargo bay of a plane: Catherine: "Where to start?" Grissom: "First witness, first suspect." They turn to look at the horse. Catherine: "The horse?" Grissom: "Of course." This is a reference to the 1961 TV show, Mister Ed theme song.
