It's evaluation day for the staff, but Grissom's evaluations take a back seat when a severed head, sans body, is found in a car's trunk. Meanwhile, Sara and Nick investigate when a body turns up in the desert, and it happens to be missing the head. Warrick is sent to investigate things at the juvenile detention center after a teen is found murdered. The only witness to the death is the young man James, whom Warrick identified in episode 3, as guilty of a hit and run and promised to look after.

Episode Quotes
Grissom: Repeat after me. Silk, silk, silk.
Nick: Silk, silk, silk.
Grissom: What do cows drink?
Nick: Milk.
Grissom: Cows drink water. They produce milk.
Nick: Hey, Catherine, say, "Silk, silk, silk."
Catherine: Silk, silk, silk.
Nick: What do cows drink?
Catherine: Water. Why?
Nick (after a disappointed pause): Never mind.

Catherine: Now there's a start, "gross." Gross negligence, flying down I-15 in a stolen car. Gross anatomy, a human bowling ball in the trunk. Gross details, let's hear it.

Sara: What has gotten in to you?
Nick: Grissom.

Gil: Vitreous humor is glazed over.
Jim: What does that mean?
Gil: That means that, six to eight hours ago somebody lost their head. Then ... somebody lost their head.

Gil: I forgot.
Catherine: Well, maybe we should be evaluating you.

Sara: Yes! Road trip.

Catherine: (to Gil) I'll meet you at the autopsy. 'Head'-topsy.

Nick: If I'm not ready, be a man -- tell me I'm not ready.
Gil: You're not ready.

Gil: (to Nick) Anybody who's great at anything, Nick, does it for their own approval not someone else's.

Catherine: Definitely a crime of passion.
Gil: You think a female could do this?
Catherine: I could have.
Gil: Scared of you.

Al: What do you think?
Catherine: It sucks... Hey, I just filed for divorce. I feel a little confident.

Jim: (to Lori and Anna Leah) You know what I think? I don't think you two are murderers. I think you're just felony stupid.

James Moore: I had two things going against me: I'm the newest face and the only witness.
Warrick: So it's your life versus time.

Sara: That's one of those funny clues. Could mean nothing or could mean everything.

Gil: So bizarre, human behavior. What you can't cut out of your mind you can always cut out of your photo album.

Warrick: Nothing surprises me anymore.

Catherine: The cousin of footprints. Sock prints ... look.

Nick: Perp thought he could cover his tracks by taking off his shoes.
Catherine: He thought wrong.

Catherine: By the way, what about my evaluation?
Gil: Keep up the good work, Catherine.

Gil: So the footlocker had no headroom.

Warrick: Whatever happened to my evaluation?
Gil: You're sitting in it.

Gil: (to Warrick) Every nine years and 34 days I feel like sharing.
