Grissom: You know what's really sad? This wasn't just a murder. It was a hate crime. Kevin Marcus hated himself.


  • At the end of the episode, it is revealed that Grissom is taking lip reading classes. He doesn't say it, but tells another student in sign language.


  • After Catherine is attacked in the house, she herself says, "I'm evidence." As a result, she couldn't have been allowed to participate further in the investigation.
  • If you look closely at the dead man's right eye after Catherine hangs up her cell phone, the cop speaks, and when it cuts back to her, if you look at the man's right eye, you can see him quickly blink.
  • When Michael Gilden (Lawrence Ames) is on the coroner's table, his chest rises even though he's dead.
