When the agents go in to question Doug Windom, in the long shot he is holding the cutting touch to far from the metal he is cutting. In the closer shot he is holding the touch much closer, but the metal isn't yet ready to cut. If he put the heat on his work the moment the scene began, by the time of the close-up he would be ready to begin the cut. See more »

This Episode Was very touching
6 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have watched this episode just like every one of the series... But this one has a emotional note to me.. The mother of Charlie being a musical person... It really touched my heart... and then ending when ebs was playing the piano a piece which the mother composed..

Well It got me going.. watched the ending part 10 times.. still get tears in my eyes when I see the father closing his eyes remembering his wife. I think the show is very good... and sometimes the emotional things about it .. got me really moving. Lets see what you all thought of this one.. I am curious.

I have to mind you.. that I am not easy touched by series in general.. but hell.. I liked numb3rs the first time I saw it :)
