Episode Quotes
Grissom: News move fast around here.
Sofia: Ecklie travels fast.

Grissom: Ecklie doesn't have a scientific bone in his body. He starts with the answers he wants and then divises the questions that support those answers.

Conrad Ecklie: Well, taken individually, there's nothing specific that warrants disciplinary
action. However, my investigation has led me to question the effectiveness of your team
and your ability to lead it. I'm breaking you guys up.
Gil Grissom: Excuse me?
Conrad Ecklie: I've already spoken with the Director. Staff assignments are under my
purview. Effective immediately, Catherine Willows will be promoted to Swing Shift Supervisor ...
Gil Grissom: Wait a minute, Catherine applied for days.
Conrad Ecklie: I do what's best for the lab. I've decided to move the Swing Shift
Supervisor to days ...
Sofia Curtis: I've been the Acting Supervisor of days for the past month -- I believe I've
proven myself capable.
Conrad Ecklie: Warrick Brown and Nick Stokes will report to Catherine. Greg Sanders,
pending his proficiency, Sara Sidle and Sofia will report to you.
Sofia Curtis: You're demoting me.
Conrad Ecklie: I think you and Grissom suit each other.
