Tinder Box - S1-E22

Trivia: Because the episode 'Tinder Box' closely resembled (and was likely based on) the fire at a nightclub in Rhode Island that killed 100 people, the local CBS affiliate decided not to air the episode so soon after the event.

Maria Santos

Deep Freeze - S6-E5

Trivia: One the episode's murder suspects is played by a then-relatively unknown Stana Katic. Two years later, she began playing the opposite side of the law, homicide detective Kate Beckett, on Castle, the role for which she has since become most famous.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: Because of the October 2002 DC-area sniper killings, CBS considered delaying the broadcast of the episode "Kill Zone", in which Horatio pursues a sniper. However, when two suspects were arrested and charged with the sniper slayings at the end of October, the network reconsidered, and chose to air the episode during the November 2002 sweeps as originally planned.

Show generally

Factual error: Calleigh Duquesne frequently wears completely inappropriate clothing throughout the whole series. She often wears blouses that are so low cut that the neckline is below the lower curve of her breasts. No officer of the court in the US would be allowed to dress this way. There is no grey area here, and this is not a character mistake - first time a CSI turned up at work dressed like that, she'd be sent home to change. Second time, she'd be on suspension until she agreed to change her dress standards. Also (and this regularly happens in CSI: NY as well) she is regularly wearing high heels - also a certain no-no for as CSI. Incidentally, male CSIs have equally strict dress standards.

Answer: Earlier in the episode, Horatio tells Mac that Penrod was seen in Tribeca getting his leg set, only to bolt when he learned a nurse wised up the cops. Caine and the NYPD probably got Penrod's address from the hospital.
