Main Characters in this Episode
Gil Grissom: I let him talk to me, actually. In fact, he just spoke. Didn't you hear him? He just told me he didn't commit suicide.
Catherine Willows: Oh, hey.
Jerrod Cooper: Who's this? I just dialed my own damn beeper.
Catherine Willows: It's my beeper now. I found it.
Jerrod Cooper: It ain't your beeper, girl. That's my beeper. I do a lot of business on that beeper.
Catherine Willows: What kinda business?
Jerrod Cooper: Oh, you know. Slangin' a little somethin' somethin'.
Catherine Willows: Oh, a little somethin' something'. Maybe a little bling-bling?
Jerrod Cooper: What do you know about some bling-bling?
Catherine Willows: Invite me over to your crib, baby, and you might find out.
Jerrod Cooper: It's on. Three Aces Motel. Room 202.
Catherine Willows: Three Aces Motel, room 202. See you soon.
Catherine Willows: Did I just do that?
Sara Sidle: What's a "bling bling"?
Catherine Willows: Got me.
- Goof (continuity error): When Grissom uses the sprayer on the balcony, he fills it to a quarter, then is shown from behind with a more than half-filled sprayer, then again frontal with a quarter-filled sprayer (at 0:36:50, blu-ray time).
- Goof (factual errors): Holly Gribbs' firearm is a Glock 23 (.40S&W), which can only use a double-stack magazine. However, when a CSI examines the magazine from that firearm, she is holding what is clearly a single-stack magazine from an M1911 (.45ACP).
- Goof (revealing mistake): When Grissom and Nick are looking at the wrist of the fallen millionaire, you can clearly see the eye lid of the millionaire moving and twitching when the camera leaves the shot of his face.
- Goof (revealing mistake): The series often use actual people to play the numerous dead people in the cases. Due to this, the "dead bodies'" eyelashes are often seen moving. Small movement is understandable, but in some episodes, the movement is way too revealing.
- Goof (continuity error): The man who falls from the building went out and purchased a $40,000 watch. When they show the movement inside the watch it is a Japanese quartz movement valued retail at the most $45.00. Not the kind of movement found in a watch of that cost. The movement would most likely have been either Swiss quartz, or mechanical.
- This episode was dedicated in memory of Owen Wolf. He was a production assistant for the show who was shot in the head on August 13, 2000, as a victim, in a botched armed robbery, in Van Nuys, California.
