Catherine Willows: What are you doing?
Gil Grissom: I'm going insane. I don't understand this diagram.

[stands behind him and successfully ties the tie]
Catherine Willows: I'm looking forward to your speech.
[Grissom's speech on a napkin]
Gil Grissom: What can I say about Conrad Ecklie?
Sofia Curtis: Sofia Curtis.

[Grissom leaves the ballroom and comes to the hotel]
Officer Metcalf: Hey, Griss. What's with the monkey suit?
Gil Grissom: I was at a funeral across the street.
Officer Metcalf: At a casino? My condolences.
Gil Grissom: Do you always process like this?
Sofia Curtis: Like what?
Gil Grissom: With your mouth.
[Sofia tells something to Grissom who isn't paying attention to her]
Sofia Curtis: [pause] That time I was talking to you.
Gil Grissom: Huh?
[turns to her]
Gil Grissom: Sorry. I was, uh, treating it like white noise.
Catherine Willows: Why are you talking to yourself?
Gil Grissom: I'm trying a new technique.
Catherine Willows: Is it working?
Gil Grissom: I have no idea.
Catherine Willows: You crack this kid's head open, all that would come out would be T and A.
Greg Sanders: I think you said that about me once.
Catherine Willows: Actually, more than once.
