Big Middle - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: Season 5 Episode 16 "Big Middle" Sara Sidle marks a triangle on a bed sheet around evidence and then proceeds to cut along the inside of the triangle lines in order to remove the evidence from the sheet. In the next shot, Sara is shown removing the cut out from the sheet, which now has been cut along the outside of the triangle lines.

Big Middle - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: The board behind the oddsmaker keeps changing. At the beginning, he has crossed out the odds on the game between Miami and Memphis from 5 to 7 1/2 to 10 1/2. When Brass comes in, the board is only showing 5. It then changes every time it switches from Brass to the oddsmaker- it will show the 5 crossed out and then not crossed out the next time. Finally in the final shot, it shows the board without the 1/2 after the 10. (00:17:15)

Nick Stokes: There's a sucker born every minute.
Gil Grissom: Yep, and they all come to Vegas.



In a number of episodes people are shown eating and drinking in the laboratories. For instance, in "Miss Willows' Regrets" Nick and Greg are seen eating fried chicken in the lab, and in "Overload" Sara eats a sandwich while watching Grissom experiment with her deli pickle. There are other examples. No reputable laboratory (which this is supposed to be) would allow its staff to eat or drink while in the lab. It is basic scientific protocol to prevent contamination of samples or the person picking up toxins on their food.



This episode featured a guest appearance by Tom Noonan. Noonan and series star William Petersen played villain and hero, respectively, in the film "Manhunter."
