Lindsay Monroe: You know, I've always been curious: why do they call this area "Hell's Kitchen"?
Mac Taylor: Well, the story goes, a veteran cop was watching a riot with his rookie partner, who said "This place is Hell itself", to which the veteran replied "Hell is a mild climate compared to this. This place is Hell's kitchen."
Dr. Ray Langston: You know that the, uh, oldest projectile fired from a weapon was recorded in the fourth century in Japan? It was fired from a very crude handheld cannon that you lit with a wick. Its sole purpose was for taking life. Seems that after seventeen hundred years of evolution...[pumps shotgun]...we haven't come very far, have we?Cubs Fan
Mac Taylor: I'm so tired. I used to sit like this with my wife. Her name was Claire. She died on 9/11. Nobody saw it coming. I was cleaning out that closet the other day, and I... I found this beach ball. And I remembered it was my wife who blew it up. I never told anybody this, but I got rid of everything that reminded me of Claire. Too painful. The one thing I couldn't throw away was that beach ball. Her breath is still in there.
Plot hole: The CSIs catch a murder suspect putting down a drink can when reviewing security footage of a robbery, and immediately realise they didn't see it at the scene so assume one of the first cops on the scene must have removed it. Thing is though, the murderers shot out the security camera before the actual shooting occurred, meaning there was loads of time off-camera for the killers to take the can with them, but the CSIs never even consider this - they jump to the conclusion a cop took it even though there's no actual evidence for that.Jon Sandys
