Episode Notes
Sara is seen carrying a large piece of bamboo though the lab. This seems to be a running joke among production. Large, unmanageable props are usually carried through the lab by either Sara or Catherine.

Episode Quotes
Greg: Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, ninety-nine bottles of beer. Swab one down, run it through CODIS, ninety-eight bottles of beer on the wall.
Nick: (Walking in) Whatever happened to "take on down and pass it around"? That was the best part.
Greg: You know us lab rats have to do something to get through the day.

Episode Goofs
Editing goof: This episode opens and closes in a movie theatre. At the beginning of the episode one of the couples seen from behind is Gil and Catherine. They do not go to see a movie till the end of the episode.

Episode References
Gil: This is the last art house left in Vegas. I saw Baraka here, on a double bill with Koyaanisquatsi.
Catherine: Was there anyone else here?
Gil: Sure.
Catherine: With you?
Gil: No.

This is a repeat of the joke from "Pledging Mr. Johnson" regarding the calamari restaurant.

Catherine: Whoo! Theatres are like nightclubs; they should always keep the lights off.

Greg makes a similar reference regarding nightclubs in "Viva Las Vegas".
