Trivia

John Manotti (Austin Pendleton) is inspired by Stephen Hawking, the well-known scientist who is paralyzed and in a wheelchair due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The subplot about the supposed maltreatment that Manotti received by his nurse is inspired by a real investigation about Hawking's nurse. See more »

Goofs

When Goren and Eames visit Dr. Manotti's first wife Laurie and her daughter at their home, at one point it sounds like actress Anne Dowd (playing Laurie) calls the daughter Lena. However the daughter's name is actually Mona - Lena is the name of Dr. Manotti's physical therapist. See more »

Trying To Add It All Up Wasn't Easy
17 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very cranky, obnoxious mathematics genius is working on a special "Theory Of Everything." He has an assistant who is acting nervous and trying to tell his boss something when he's poisoned. His coffee had been spiked with radiation. It was not a pretty death.

This episode turns out to be a real "whodunnit." It looks like it's an easy case of finding the murderer but it doesn't turn out that way, thanks to some very clever deductions by our resident own resident genius, "Det. Robert Goren" (Vincent D'Onofrio).

This was not an easy case to fully understand. Sometimes some of these episodes are like that. This case involves hidden motives, secret codes and all kinds of complicated matters, some dealing with physics.

The guest star is Austin Pendleton. That isn't a familiar name to most of us but if you're a longtime television and/or movie watcher, his face is very familiar. He's been in a lot of good shows in both mediums. Here, he plays, "John Minotti," the man behind "The Theory Of Everything." You'll find him a very interesting character.
