Numb3rs: Uncertainty Principle

After a series of bank robberies, Don recruits Charlie to help chart the next robbery location, only to overlook the thieves’ true motive.

When Don and his team attempt to catch a pair of repeat bank robbers in Los Angeles, Charlie devises an equation using probability and statistical analysis to pinpoint the location of their next robbery. Although his prediction for the next robbery is correct, his mathematical model turns out to be useless when the robber’s true motives are revealed. His frustration growing, Charlie’s desire to continue to help the FBI falters when a stake-out goes bad, leaving one agent dead and his brother, Don, with a gunshot wound.

Episode Quotes
Terry: How's Charlie doing?

Don: I don't know, he's just working on some famously unsolvable math problem, which is not a good sign.

Terry: At least it's not binge-drinking and strip clubs.

Don: That's true.

Charlie: *To Don* Statistically, you're dead now. You understand what the means? A man pointed a gun at your head and fired. The fact that you survived is an anomaly, and is unlikely that it will be the outcome to a second such encounter.
