CSI 8.02 "A La Cart" [watched on cbs.com: 2007-10-05]


This wasn't a bad episode, but I wasn't particularly in love. (Okay, I'm not sure I've ever been in love with this show, but still.)


Ecklie: "You and your supervisor were in direct violation of lab policy--"
Sara: "Are."

Ecklie: "When did you and Supervisor Grissom begin your relationship?"
Sara: "We've always had a relationship."

Sara: "Two years ago. I think it was a Sunday."

They actually used Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" for the bobbing head? Wow.

When Grissom said his Ichabod Crane quote and we cut to credits I wondered if we had a pre-credits pun last episode. *checks* Nope. Weather report, Grissom pouring water onto the model, Sara in the water.

I don't actually believe Greg knew about Sara and Grissom. I think he's just fronting.

Warrick: "One minute we're married, the next--"
Cath: "Eddie and I stayed together way too long."

So the divorce is official, and we're back to the Warrick/Catherine UST (assuming of course that we ever particularly left it).

Dave mentioned a "bar mitzvah." Was he canonically Jewish before this? [He's not listed as such on wikipedia.]

Cath: "Well it could have been whatever food was on the skewers. ALS'll pick up anything that's fatty or dairy-based."
It looked like fruit on the skewers.

night vision glasses

Warrick: "I can see just fine."
Cath: "Where are you?"
Warrick: "Right here."

Hodges: "Just so you know, I'm a bit of a go-cart enthusiast myself."
     Oh, come on. It's not bad enough that Greg knows something about everything, Hodges has to start accumulating quirky interests as well. You people all live in the fricking lab, how do you have time to be enthusiasts about much of anything?

Nick: "When I was a kid, we used to make these [go-carts] out of lunch trays [..]"
Greg: "When I was a kid, I used to make bombs."
     Love Nick's look off that line.

I also enjoyed the way they look at each other and kinda shrug before bolting off in pursuit of Rodney.

Brass: "Did you wash your hands?"
Michael: "Sorry, force of habit, waiter."

I like Michael a lot. It made me sad that he turned out to be the killer.

Nancy (Katz, soon to be Ellis): "I can't even see it, but it feels big -- the ring I mean."
And "there's way too much metal under those tables..." Hee.

Ecklie: "Gil, nobody wants to hear about your lovelife less than I do, but since you didn't handle this right, I have to take a formal statement. This should have been a conversation between friends. I mean, we could have found some way around this. Catherine could have done Sara's evaluations. Why didn't you just tell me?"
Grissom: "We didn't want you to know."
Ecklie: "Don't most women like the world to know they're dating someone?"
Grissom: "Where do you get your information about women, Conrad?"
     Which is a funny and well-delivered line, though I would definitely support Ecklie's dataset.

And wow, I'm really impressed that Ecklie's being so kind about this.

Ecklie: "When did you two, y'know?"
Grissom: "Nine years ago."
Ecklie: "You know, you two need to get your stories straight."

Is there a reason the restaurant owner has an accent? I felt like it was supposed to indicate that she was sinister -- so I felt less uncomfortable about it once it turned out that she wasn't the killer, but still.

Grissom: "Come on Conrad, there's always room for JELL-O."
Ecklie: "That's expensive JELL-O. [...] Good work. See if we can't re-use some of that."

9 years ago = The Forensic Academy Conference
Did she have those facial wounds at episode's opening? *checks* Ah, yes, she does, if you're looking closely. But mostly that side of her face is in shadow.

Sara [on moving to Swing]: "Besides, I am sure that I could use more daylight in my life."

I recognized Greg first in the go carts, then Nick, but wow, Cath and Doc Robbins, too.

Grissom: "No thanks, I like to watch."

Oh, poor Sara, watching them all.
