Episode Notes
This episode was originally entitled "Insects".

Episode Quotes
Grissom: You have empathy for her, Sara. You want someone to pay for what was done to her. That's normal.
Sara: You want to sleep with me?
Grissom: Did you just say what I think you did?
Sara: That way, when I wake up in cold sweat under the blanket, hearing Kaye's screams ... You can tell me it's nothing. It's just empathy.

Sara: You're the one who said one piece of evidence is better than ten eyewitnesses.
Grissom: What do you tape everything I say?

Brass: So, you planning a little late-night luau? Roast pig?
Grissom: It's an experiment.

Brass: So it took longer for the insects to get in there?
Grissom: And deposit their eggs. Maybe two whole days. I've wrapped porky here pretty tight.

Catherine: (to Gil) Hey, how's the body with the bugs?

Sara: I never get used to this part, you know when the bugs get going.
Gil: Just doing what God intended. Recycling us back to earth.

Warrick: D.A. asked me to testify on a chain of custody. I can do that in my sleep.

Conrad Ecklie: Your reputation as an entomologist elevates this entire crime lab, which elevates my stature, by association.
Gil: Well, then you must not feel very small today, by association.
