A night starts strange and rapidly goes south from there, as Nick, Greg and Hodges "kidnap" Henry to celebrate his birthday at a desert hole-in-the-wall Bar-B-Q place. They start by getting run off the road, then finding a dead man with a raccoon attached to his face in the target restaurant... which was closed six months earlier by the health department. Meanwhile, back in Vegas, the rest of the crew experiences the same sort of strange, as they deal with a 911 call leading to a dead woman drowned in a bathtub, and an unconscious man with narcolepsy... and an extra body part.

Episode Notes
The working title for this episode was "To Serve Harry".

A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device is actually used by people suffering from sleep apnea, a medical condition where the unconscious mechanism for breathing doesn't work properly, which causes constant interruption of sleeping.

Nielsen Ratings: Appendicitement was seen by 16.43 million people, and was rated 10.0/16 in households, 5.2/13 in adults 25-54, and 3.9/10 in adults 18-49.



Episode Quotes
Greg: Henry, my friend, you are about to have the best birthday of your life, because we are taking you to THE one, THE only, Harry's Hog Hideout.
Henry: What's a 'Hog Hideout'?
Nick: It's only the best Bar-B-Q known to mankind. It's a little bit of a drive, but don't worry, Greg knows where it is.
Greg: I thought you said you knew where it is?

Greg: Henry, my friend, you are about to have the best birthday of your life, because we are taking you to THE one, THE only, Harry's Hog Hideout.
Henry: What's a 'Hog Hideout'?
Nick: It's only the best Bar-B-Q known to mankind. It's a little bit of a drive, but don't worry, Greg knows where it is.
Greg: I thought you said you knew where it is?

Brass: A woman was attacked and violently drowned in his own bathroom and he says he slept through the whole thing?
Ray: Being connected to a CPAP is kind of like being connected to a ventilator. It's a noisy machine and it's a reasonable alibi.
Brass: Mr. Higgins knows a lot about reasonable alibis. (points to TV screen) He's a big fan of true crime.

Nick: Look. You may get a shot off, you may even kill my young friend there, but then I will unload on you. I can't miss from here. And you don't want to be dead, now, do you?
Slick: You're a cop?
Nick: That's right.

Episode Goofs
Either Greg's assessment of it being a mile away was way off or there's a continuity issue -- while low in the sky, the sun was still up as they leave the car, but it's full-on dark by the time they get to Harry's. Typical walking pace is ca. 3mph, so it takes about 20 minutes to walk a mile. Even with Henry limping a bit they should make it in a half hour, so there should still be some twilight.



Analysis
When Brass refers to Higgins being a fan of "True Crime", a TV screen is shown with six episode titles on it. Some appear to be rather close and/or identical to the titles of CSI first season episodes, and the list may be an in-joke listing of working titles for season one eps.
