I had to go thru your comments even thought I cannot watch it until the weekend. I am looking forward to checking it out!

I did have to investigate a bit on Lindsey Willows because I was wondering the same thing a couple years ago.. Is she the same girl?

From 2000-2005 Lindsey was played by Madison McReynolds and was in 9 episodes. From 2006-2007 she was played by Kay Panabaker in 3.

In researching, I found this line that I remembered right away because it was so typical of a parent not wanting their child to do what they do, if it is not appropriate. Do you remember it?

From "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Harvest (#5.3)" (2004)
Catherine Willows: [scolding Lindsey after she tried to get a ride off the highway] I don't know what I'm going to do with you. You've been talking back to your teachers, skipping school, and now hitch-hiking. What's next?
Lindsey Willows: [under her breath] Stripping.
Catherine Willows: Excuse me?

More comments to follow. I am trying to find others to respond too. :) I know we aren't the only two in Norwalk watching CSI~ hahaha

Impressive research on Lindsey; I didn't even know the character's name. And thanks for my being my blog advocate. What dedication — even reading this before you've seen the show.

• Grissom: You know, Nick, you’re lucky you’re not in here, too.” Nick: “Understood.”
This part reminds me of your comment last time on the CSI's becoming cops. Nick never should have taken off running for them. I guess they are starting to feel it is their jobs.

• “They didn’t realize they were missing with an Ultimate Fighter.” (Insert eye roll here.)
What an idiot.....

• Another person throwing themselves out of a window?!
Every show this season has had one or two. I guess it is less gruesome than the "Bones" episode when the woman was shoved down the elevator shaft and torn into unknown pieces as the elevator went up and down time and time again.

• They brought the entire dumpster into the lab?! Ohhh-kay… Another take from Bones. They always have to bring everything to the Smithsonian.

• Is that Grissom’s hearing going bad (again – I though we were done with that unresolved storyline) or is his attention drifting again?
The hearing... maybe part of his departure?

• A REALLY random thought: Why are 90 percent of the goldfish are at the right side of the aquarium? That’s the second time in two scenes.
They had to be gnawing on something in the corner.

• Is it just me or wouldn’t it be cool to hear a director’s commentary to know what those lab contraptions actually do?
And if they really exist?

• Did that lab tech just flirt with Nick?
Nick needs a love interest....

• Grissom: “Did you just ask me out?” Only between Grissom and Hodges. A classic awkward moment.
What the heck? I think he was offended that Gil was not interested. But wait, did the pschologist suggest Hodges try to befriend Gil to help the healing? Seems they are all trying to throw a little gay in: Gray's and the new Raising the Bar.

• The only thing I could think of when Adams was looking for the cell phone was: “She better find it before it goes to voice mail. …”

Riley to the dumpster rescue.

• If you look like Daniel Craig, I’m Christian Bale’s look-alike stunt double. Hey, a guy can dream!

That guy was out of his mind!

• Hodges: “I broke your case again.” Catherine: “Go.” Hodges: “Fish.” Outstanding!
Creativity; I love it!

• That’s Martinez from “NYPD Blue!” I’m loving these actors cast in these bit parts. That show, besides “Law & Order,” is one of the few shows that has survived and thrived with multiple cast changes.

Others that are popping up, and not just as guests, are those from Third Watch. Kim is in Lipstick Jungle, one is in Cold Case and others are in recurring roles. It is good to see them around again.

• Why doesn’t anybody on this show call 9-1-1? Morons.

On that same note, they always go to the scenes right when they know they are going to find the vic and they don't automatically take an ambulance, even when they know they are going to need one. Or hope so anyhow. I guess it is the drama of screaming out "I need a bus in here".

• Grissom has a dog?! Awright! But could you answer the phone already? Drives me nuts in all shows. I can't handle letting mine ring more than twice.

• What’s with all the dead bodies at the end? Did I miss something?

Cary... you did miss something; Here is your line from above: • “Juan will never forgive me.” Juan never forgave any of them. He killed everyone that had anything to do with the case. They should have known not to mess with Juan...

Since my new blog format got a rave review from my avid reader Tess, it’s back – and may become a permanent fixture.

FMI, do other people read my entries, but don’t comment? Keep in mind this blog is supposed to spur conversation and debates. First, my favorite quotes from this episode:

• Adams: “Halloween is next week.” Nick: “In Las Vegas, it’s all year.”

• Woman: “Nice outfit. I wore the same thing last year.” Nick: “Me, too.”

• Grissom: You know, Nick, you’re lucky you’re not in here, too.” Nick: “Understood.”

• “They didn’t realize they were missing with an Ultimate Fighter.” (Insert eye roll here.)

And now for my chronological blog thoughts:

• Another person throwing themselves out of a window?!

• They brought the entire dumpster into the lab?! Ohhh-kay…

• Good for Catherine being an assertive mother and sending her daughter home. Is that same actress? (If so, she’s blossomed.) … That club owner has some nerve to say she showed “bad parenting” because her daughter had a fake ID.

• Is that Grissom’s hearing going bad (again – I though we were done with that unresolved storyline) or is his attention drifting again?

• The vic’s dad is a major crime lord. Gulp.

• “Juan will never forgive me.” Double gulp.

• A REALLY random thought: Why are 90 percent of the goldfish are at the right side of the aquarium? That’s the second time in two scenes.

• Is it just me or wouldn’t it be cool to hear a director’s commentary to know what those lab contraptions actually do?

• Did that lab tech just flirt with Nick?

• No, Catherine didn’t overreact. And yes, she does need to worry about her daughter.

• Grissom: “Did you just ask me out?” Only between Grissom and Hodges. A classic awkward moment.

• The only thing I could think of when Adams was looking for the cell phone was: “She better find it before it goes to voice mail. …”

• If you look like Daniel Craig, I’m Christian Bale’s look-alike stunt double. Hey, a guy can dream!

• What’s up with the techno music crap as background music? I know; that’s redundant.

• Hodges: “I broke your case again.” Catherine: “Go.” Hodges: “Fish.” Outstanding!

• See, I knew there was something weird about those fish! • That’s Martinez from “NYPD Blue!” I’m loving these actors cast in these bit parts. That show, besides “Law & Order,” is one of the few shows that has survived and thrived with multiple cast changes.

• Why doesn’t anybody on this show call 9-1-1? Morons.
