The Apple iPod that Stella found showed the song title "Moon River", which is the signature song by Henry Mancini, from the film 'Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)'. This keeps with the theme of the 'Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)' theme of the episode, where 3 women dressed in the famous Holly Golightly outfit to rob a jewelry store. Holly Golightly is the name of the character Audrey Hepburn played in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)'. See more »


A bullet pulled out of the mattress was referred to as "41 mm". That would be almost 1.75 inches in diameter. Most likely they intended it to be .41 caliber. The .41 AE caliber is not a very common round, however. See more »


Dr. Sid Hammerback: [Sid and Peyton are flipping a coin to see who gets to do the autopsy on Pauline Rayburn. Peyton wins] It's heads. She's yours. Can - can I at least watch? This is one of the most well preserved mummies I've seen in my many years as a pathologist. The environmental conditions of temperature and humidity and ventalation must have been just, you know, optimum.

Who Were These 'Holly Golightly' Thieves?
12 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beginning to this episode was one of the coolest I've seen. Three women, all dressed like "Holly Golightly" in the classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's," enter a jewelry store and rob it. How they smashed all the glass at once was cool and how the escaped was pretty good, too. Unfortunately, a man got shot and killed accidentally in the holdup, so it turns into much more than just a robbery. Most of the CSI team works on this case.

The secondary story involves a woman who mummified in a fairly short period and was found in the walls of a high-rise that was just in the middle of demolition. How she got into that state and who killed her are the questions. Mac is the main player on this one.

This was a good episode and think it would have been a season-opener than last week's story.
