Nick Stokes: This is total BS!
Gil Grissom: Nick...
Nick Stokes: There was blood on Havilin's hand!
Gil Grissom: Nick, go get a soda.
Greg Sanders: So, how does the victim's blood end up in the suspects mouth?
Nick Stokes: Murder is a messy job my friend
Tom Haviland: I get one phone call, right?
Gil Grissom: Sure. Just like in the movies.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: You took your clothes off for a living.
Catherine Willows: For a very good living.
Lawyer: You took your clothes off for a living?
Catherine Willows: For a VERY good living.
Catherine Willows: Grissom... they're beating our heads in. Judge is going to dismiss... you can feel it.
Gil Grissom: Don't get ahead of yourself.
Catherine Willows: I'm not ahead of myself. I'm up there front and center taking hits along with the rest of CSI. You know, you've turned into a really lousy leader. I need your help, and you're on the sidelines.
Warrick Brown: You don't recognize that guy, do you? It's Tom Haviland, movie star.
Gil Grissom: Clark Gable was a movie star.
Catherine Willows: D.A. just got the call. Tom's manager hired Marjorie Westcott to defend him.
Nick Stokes: Soundbite Westcott?
Catherine Willows: Guilty, rich client, high-profile case it's right up her alley. Publicity for her new cable show.
Gil Grissom: Forget about who's involved. We do this like we do any other case.
Casino Owner: Can the casino do anything to hurry this up, Mr. Stokes?
Nick Stokes: I'm processing as fast as I can, sir. It would help if I had the dice used at this table.
Casino Owner: We replace the dice every hour.
Nick Stokes: I've got my work cut out for me then, don't I?
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: [on television] Aside from the fact that the other woman in this case also known as Tonya is still at large and is still a likely suspect in this murder the evidence Las Vegas CSI did collect the evidence they're using to railroad my client, Tom Haviland, has been completely and irretrievably compromised. I'm holding in my hand compromised, contaminated evidence, ladies and gentlemen. CSI should be ashamed; and you, as citizens, should be outraged. This is not how we do things in America.
Gil Grissom: Tom Haviland's attorneys are not waiving time.
Nick Stokes: Are you serious?
Sara Sidle: They're actually exercising their right to a speedy trial?
Gil Grissom: No requests for continuances, no stall tactics. They're pushing for their day in court.
Warrick Brown: Good defense attorney always does the last thing you expect.
Catherine Willows: Yeah. What typically drags on for months has now been put on the fast track and the prelim is less than 72 hours.
Greg Sanders: I'm only done processing half the evidence.
Catherine Willows: You're going to have to call in help, because if the judge thinks that our evidence isn't strong enough to go to trial, he's going to dismiss the charges on Tom.
Sara Sidle: Can't the D.A. drop the charges and we'll refile when we get our evidence together?
Catherine Willows: Sure, but the odds are that Tom will relocate to Europe and pull a Polanski.
Greg Sanders: And what's a Polanski?
Gil Grissom: Get-out-of-jail-free card. One more thing: Westcott just added a forensic scientist to their roster. She wants him to examine every piece of evidence we have against Haviland.
Nick Stokes: As soon as it's processed they'll get a copy of our report.
Gil Grissom: They're entitled to see it as it's processed.
Nick Stokes: I've never done a case where the defendant took advantage of that rule of discovery.
Gil Grissom: Well, when you can't attack the evidence itself, you attack the method of gathering the evidence.
Sara Sidle: So who's their guy?
Gil Grissom: Dr. Phillip Gerard.
Sara Sidle: Phillip Gerard? Your mentor is their forensic scientist?
Gil Grissom: Yeah. Marjorie Westcott's a smart lawyer.
Greg Sanders: [to Nick] So, now you have to find it on the surveillance tape?
Nick Stokes: If I want to present it to a jury, yeah. Nowadays, people expect a show.
[hands the test results back to Greg]
Nick Stokes: I should've gone to film school.
Sara Sidle: Vic didn't sustain any trauma that would've caused a medium velocity spatter.
Sara Sidle: She wouldn't have. I think her throat was slashed, to shut her up. She was collateral damage. My guess... these blood patterns mean that Tonya's dead. And I bet she was the first to die. Rage killing.
Catherine Willows: So, I've checked every plumbing fixture in this place. There's no blood.
Sara Sidle: Grissom said he found blood under Movie Boy's nailbeds.
Catherine Willows: And that sheet looks like a butcher's apron. Movie Boy had to wash his hands someplace.
Greg Sanders: Psst, Grissom.
Greg Sanders: We got a development. I went over those swatches that Sara gave me from the bed sheet.
Gil Grissom: Are you whispering?
Greg Sanders: I don't want that Gerard guy to hear me.
Gil Grissom: Well, he's not here, so stop it.
Catherine Willows: Marjorie's requesting copies of CSI's proficiency test records, by midnight.
Gil Grissom: So relax. If any of us had failed the yearly proficiency test, we wouldn't be here.
Catherine Willows: You completely forget, don't you? My test is on appeal.
Gil Grissom: Oh, right.
Catherine Willows: Board said I was wrong on one question. I said the question was ambiguous. They're going to rule my way, but not before the prelim.
Catherine Willows: Just trying to rattle me.
Gil Grissom: Is it working?
Catherine Willows: Maybe I should just take a page out of your book. If I don't collect or analyze anything, I don't have to testify. Of course, it helps to be boss. Very politic. Ecklie must be rubbing off on you.
Gil Grissom: Yeah, that's it. Ecklie.
Warrick Brown: I just got served. Movie star's lawyer wants the shirt that I wore to the crime scene.
Gil Grissom: So give it to him.
Gil Grissom: I had to throw it out.
Gil Grissom: Why?
Warrick Brown: It was covered in the blood from the accident victim.
Gil Grissom: Well, you have to find it; otherwise, it'll look like you've got something to hide.
Warrick Brown: Oh, CSI's on trial now?
Gil Grissom: CSI's always on trial, Warrick; you know this. Burden of proof is on us.
Nick Stokes: [as they are reviewing video surveillance] Looks like Raymond was disposing of the bodies for your client. You think he ran out of time before he could move Kim's out?
Dr. Phillip Gerard: Or Ray was disposing of them for himself. You've just supplied Tom Haviland with reasonable doubt.
Nick Stokes: No. What I showed you on video is Ray in the casino during the time the murders were committed.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: His zeal is clouding his judgment. It's not what did happen; it's what the jury will believe could have happened.
Gil Grissom: [to Gerard] What happened to you? You were a pioneer in forensic science. How many bad guys did you put away in Hennepin County?
Dr. Phillip Gerard: My share. How many innocent men have been locked away since then because of sloppy investigating shortcut forensics?
Gil Grissom: You look for mistakes in any lab, you'll find them.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: I shouldn't be able to, Gil.
Gil Grissom: Humans are fallible.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: Not this fallible: compromised blood, sweetheart deals...
Gil Grissom: No, no, no, no. You're subverting good evidence. These are good people.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: The accused is entitled to the best defense possible.
Gil Grissom: The accused is entitled, yeah. He's a movie star, that's why he's entitled. He's killed two women. You know it. But you're willing to decimate these CSIs so that you can spoon-feed a jury into letting him walk.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: A jury believes me because of my reputation just like they do you.
Gil Grissom: The difference is, Philip, I get the same paycheck regardless of what I testify to.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: I'm saying this as a friend. For the reputation of CSI, tell the D.A. to drop this, re-file down the road.
Gil Grissom: What about the victims' families? Who's their friend?
[Gerard doesn't answer]
Gil Grissom: My guys will see you in court.
Sara Sidle: There was another guy in that room. That's, that's great. The defense has us moving so fast we can't make sense of our own evidence.
Gil Grissom: That's what they want.
Captain Jim Brass: [when Tonya's body is found] Did, uh, Tom Haviland ever play a boxer? Girl's face looks like hamburger meat.
Gil Grissom: Looks like uncontrollable rage to me.
Nick Stokes: Grissom, you might want to come down here.
Gil Grissom: Just say it, Nick.
Nick Stokes: Beans and franks. Tonya's a man.
Gil Grissom: Looks like that old Hollywood saying: "Never get caught with a dead girl or a live boy." So, let's see Tom's in bed with what he thinks are two girls. He reaches down on one, becomes very confused. Most guys would have just cleared the room and gargled with whiskey. But Movie Boy, who brags about doing his own stunts, couldn't take the thought of having a man in his bed, so he freaked out.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: [to Grissom] You're not running evidence. Or have you changed your mind?
[Grissom doesn't say anything]
Dr. Phillip Gerard: By the way, tell your mother I say 'Hello' next time you talk. I was so impressed that night we all had dinner. The sign language... how you interpreted for her. Fluid, didn't miss a beat.
Gil Grissom: What'd you do, subpoena my doctor?
Dr. Phillip Gerard: Knowing your genetic predisposition for hearing loss?
Gil Grissom: You've become a bottom feeder, Philip.
Dr. Phillip Gerard: Your work is dependent upon your five senses. The fact that you're losing one of yours wouldn't bode well for any evidence you introduced.
Gil Grissom: You know, all those years I worked for you, you never got to know me at all, did you?
Sara Sidle: [to Grissom] I've looked at everything in that hotel room. Nothing matches that pattern.
Gil Grissom: What about the booking photos of Tom? Were you able to make comparisons off those?
Sara Sidle: I told Brass that I needed them; he hasn't sent me anything yet.
Gil Grissom: This case is a moving target. I'll get ahold of Brass.
[notices Sara is dressed for her court appearance]
Gil Grissom: You look nice.
Sara Sidle: Thanks. Wish me luck.
[turns to leave]
Gil Grissom: Sara? Whatever happens in court, it's not because you're seeing this guy. You deserve to have a life.
Catherine Willows: [to Nick] Remember, if you get stuck just maintain the same posture. If there's any adjustments, you're seen as squirming. It's going to make you look shifty.
Nick Stokes: Thanks, Cath. You know, I've done this before.
Catherine Willows: Well, I've done it longer.
Nick Stokes: [Catherine waits outside the courtroom on the bench; Nick comes out] Damn!
Catherine Willows: What?
Nick Stokes: Damn, damn, damn. I forgot to put case identifiers on my dice photos.
Catherine Willows: Date, time and file number?
Nick Stokes: Yeah.
[Catherine doesn't say anything]
Nick Stokes: Don't look at me that way, okay? I wrote it down on the evidence envelope. I had to move fast. The casino manager wanted us out of there.
Catherine Willows: The dice places Tom at the murder. Victim's blood mixed with his saliva.
Nick Stokes: I was sweating bullets looking at those photos.
Catherine Willows: Did the judge exclude the dice?
Nick Stokes: No. No, just my credibility.
Warrick Brown: Damn! Why didn't I see that coming? Gambling?
Nick Stokes: Hey, we're all in Nevada. It's legal; don't worry about it.
Warrick Brown: Legal doesn't matter in there. You know the judge is going to throw out our blood evidence, right?
Nick Stokes: Truth is, it is compromised, Warrick.
Warrick Brown: The blood is fine. It's their methods that are dirty.
Gil Grissom: Your guys didn't get any extended body photos?
Captain Jim Brass: Chest, hands, arms right there.
Gil Grissom: I need lower extremities for comparison.
Captain Jim Brass: Hey, Marjorie Westcott blew in here and shut us down. She said if we wanted full body shots we were going to have to get a court order. So the D.A.'S working on it.
Gil Grissom: When, between testimony?
Captain Jim Brass: No kidding. Meanwhile, we're presenting half a case to a judge.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: [to Sara] You date... you and Hank. You share a subtle communication. Did he move the bra to where you might have wanted it?
Sara Sidle: I didn't want it anywhere. I collect evidence without emotion.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: You do get emotionally involved, though with the men on your cases. Hank Peddigrew isn't the first time.
Sara Sidle: Excuse me?
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: A murder investigation at the residence of one Charles Renteria. Eyewitness stated he saw you and your supervisor Gil Grissom standing alone outside and you were touching him in a romantic gesture.
Sara Sidle: I brushed chalk from his face.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: Is that what they're calling it now?
Prosecutor for CSI: Objection, your honor.
Sara Sidle: Drywall dust. We were looking for a body.
Atty. Marjorie Westcott: It's a fair question, your honor. Just how far will Ms. Sidle go on the evidence to please her boss, Gil Grissom, whether he returns her attentions or not?
Dr. Phillip Gerard: Gil, good work.
Gil Grissom: My team did it, Philip. I got good CSI's.
[signs to Gerard]
Gil Grissom: Oh, and, uh, my mother says hello.
Captain Jim Brass: Tom's best friend, Ray, he's coming in tonight. Volunteering to give a blood sample.
Gil Grissom: He knows his blood's not on those sheets. They're trying to choke us with evidence.
Captain Jim Brass: He also lawyered up. Guess who's paying the legal bills?
Gil Grissom: The movie star.
Captain Jim Brass: Legalized hush money. Ought to be a law against it.
