Trivia

It wouldn't matter if a gfci receptacle had been in the bathroom where the space heater was thrown in the tub, he would've died anyway. The house was built in the 1930's, when only a hot and a neutral would be pulled to the junction box, no ground wire. without the ground the gfci is useless, just for show gfci stands for ground fault circuit inerrupter See more »

Goofs

Morgan and Prentiss refer to the outlet in the bathroom as "GFI," when in fact, the correct term is "GFCI" (for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter). Someone who has installed them in his/her house (such as Morgan) would know this. Additionally, they say that any surge of current will shut the outlet off. GFCI outlets actually shut off if they detect more current flowing out of the hot (shorter) slot than flowing into the neutral (longer) slot. Circuit breakers shut off if current surges, not GFCI outlets. See more »

Quotes

Penelope Garcia: Emily, the strange and great. What can I do you for?
Emily Prentiss: Hey, uhm, I am looking for a drug that would temporarily paralyze or subdue someone, not kill them, but give full control
Penelope Garcia: Well, I always use alcohol. Less fuss, way cheaper
