Lady Heather: Roleplay is a legitmate form of therapy; a safe way to access one's desires... and one's demons. Right Doctor?
Dr. Raymond Langston: You're the expert...
Sara Sidle: During Iona's cat role-playing, did umm, she ever express the desire to be eaten by a mountain lion because that's how she died.
[CSIs approach Dr Neth's mansion, loud music playing]
Sara Sidle: Someone's having a party...
Dr. Raymond Langston: Well they won't mind if we crash.
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Good evening! May I help you?
Dr. Raymond Langston: Dr Tyrell Neth?
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Yes.
Dr. Raymond Langston: I'm CSI Langston, this is CSI Sidle. We're from the Vegas crime lab, we'd like to ask you a few questions about Iona Vail.
Dr. Tyrell Neth: Certainly.
Sara Sidle: Can we come in?
Dr. Tyrell Neth: [laughs] By all means.
Dr. Tyrell Neth: I hope you like animals.
[CSI's walk into room full of 'cat' women, and exchange increduous looks]
Dr. Tyrell Neth: The idea of animal transformation - therianthropy - is as ancient as mankind itself. In native cultures, young males gain an animal spirit at puberty. Often the initiate must kill his spirit animal, consume it as a right of passage.
Dr. Raymond Langston: Yes I'm familiar with the concept but umm... my understanding of therianthropy is that it's fleeting, it's meant to be symbolic. In many cultures, the notion of retaining the shape of the beast is seen as nothing less than a curse.
Sara Sidle: Cat got your tongue? Maybe you could loosen it enough to tell us about Iona Vail.
Lady Heather: I don't know what you're fighting, Doctor, but it looks like you're about to be overrun. Nate Haskell... is an enemy. A formidable enemy, but... he's not *the* enemy is he?
Dr. Raymond Langston: [sighs] When I went for my interview at med school, the first question they ask you quite naturally is, "Why do you wanna be a doctor?". Well I can't remember the answer I prepared but I remember the one I gave; I told him, if I'm helping people... I'm not hurting them. The guy stared at me for what seemed like a lifetime, then he burst out laughing. So I started laughing. And within a half an hour I'd secured myself place in medical school.
Lady Heather: You had answered truthfully.
Dr. Raymond Langston: There's violence in me. In my blood, sometimes I can taste it.
Lady Heather: But as long as you keep a lid on it...
- DNA is not destiny, that's what I've always told myself.
Lady Heather: I can't answer your question.
Dr. Raymond Langston: I didn't ask you a question.
Lady Heather: Sure you did. Why else did you come here? Tell me that story? Doctor you want legitimacy. You want to know that it's OK to lose the muzzle for a while. I can say this. The good Dr Langston isn't going to catch Nate Haskell.
Dr. Raymond Langston: If I give in to my nature... I won't catch him. I will kill him.
Lady Heather: Yes you will.
Dr. Raymond Langston: What becomes of me then?
