Quotes

Sara Sidle: We were just talking about murder and whether we would commit it. I couldn't, Warrick could and Nick's on the fence. We're taking an exit poll.
Nick Stokes: Catherine, you're a mother. You and Lindsey are on that plane. How far do you go?
Catherine Willows: All the way.
Sara Sidle: [surprised] You didn't even hesitate.
Catherine Willows: That's right. If it involves the protection of my child I fight to the death.

An early gem
4 November 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Ah, I can for once write a spoiler-free review since another user has provided us with a spoilerific review! Only nine episodes in and CSI delivers big time with this thought-provoking episode. Unlike run-of-the-mill episodes with Grissom's legendary bad jokes before the opening credits, this one makes us - or at least I *hope* most who will see this will - think about the thought experiment presented to us by Grissom. His dialog paints a deeply discomforting picture of the Human Condition and *suggests* that we think: can we *become* better humans? (This is not a spoiler since I am neither revealing his actual words nor their context.) Only time will tell.

You can't get much deeper into the philosophy of the Human Condition in the Real World. A full 10/10 if there ever was one.
