CSI: NY

Vacation Getaway - S6-E23

Character mistake: In the scene in which Stella, Adam, and Hawkes are trying to get clues from the $1 bill left by Shane Casey at the bar, Stella notes that the Latin phrase "E Pluribus Unum" has had its word order changed and now reads "E Unum Pluribus". From this, she deduces that the meaning has changed from 'from many, one" to "from one, many'. However, Latin is a highly inflected language, in which the meaning of a word changes not from its position in a sentence, but from the ending that is attached to the word. Therefore, both 'e pluribus unum' and 'e unum pluribus' mean exactly the same thing.

Trivia: Carmine Giovinazzo is the first series regular to appear on all three "CSI" series. He made a guest appearance in the Vegas "CSI" third season episode "Revenge is Best Served Cold," his character was introduced in the Miami cross-over episode "MIA/NYC Nonstop," and is a series regular on NY. He has since been followed by Gary Sinise (Mac).

Chosen answer: Probably to broaden the scope of the show's plot and give the audience a chance to see the characters in a different setting, People act differently at home from the way they do at their workplace. By the ninth season, the characters would have become overly familiar and predictable. It gives the writers a chance to do something different with them.
