Abra-Cadaver is the fifth episode of season three of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Grissom, Warrick and Sara investigate when a woman who was already missing disappears while taking part in a magician's act. Things get worse when the magician burns to death on the stage.

- Tom Noonan and William Petersen worked together in 1986, in the production of Manhunter. In the movie Petersen was Will Graham and Noonan was Francis Dollarhyde, a psycho-killer that Petersen wanted to capture.
- Grissom incorrectly says that abracadabra is made up of three Hebrew words meaning father, son, and the holy spirit. In reality, abracadabra is derived either from Hebrew or Aramaic language "Avra Kadavrai" meaning "I will create as my words."
- Grissom: I knew that Houdini could swallow and regurgitate keys on cue, but I've never heard of skin pockets.
- Doc Robbins: Learn something new every day, don't you?
- Sara (to herself after finding a print): I'm no psychic, but I have been known to read palms.
- Grissom (about the big box-like container that the woman disappeared from): This been processed yet?
- Warrick (jokingly): Yeah. You want me to bag it?
- Sara: Let's take it back to the lab. Maybe we can make Greg disappear.
