Big Shots is the nineteenth episode of the seventh season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
A friend of Drops is shot to death next to him in a limo. A young woman is killed after falling out of a car.
The common denominator between the deaths: Aaron James, the brother of Demetrius James whom Greg hit with a car in self-defense.
- When the team is together in the conference room talking about the evidence, the scar on Sara's face from the scratch in the previous episode "Empty Eyes" is still visible.
- Brass (to Drops): You got booze, bling, girls, guns and drugs in a limo. Would you call that doing legitimate business?
- Drops: Yeah.
- Catherine (to Hodges): Don't tell me you're tired of the field already.
- Hodges: No, I had to catch up on my Perez Hilton.
- Catherine: I take it you're not going to pull a Sanders, then?
- Hodges: Let's see, clean friendly lab, bullet-strewn, urine-soaked street? That's a tough call.
- Drops (to Nick): Whoa! Crime lab Nick Stokes! I see we're between bad haircuts.
- Nick (to Drops): Okay, now I need you to remove all of your clothing. Including your shoes. (hands him some orange scrubs) You can put these on for now, and I'll come back to get them when your done.
- Drops: No thanks, uh, I've got one of my queens bringing me a suit. I will not be throwing on these nasty ass scrubs.
- Nick: You are covered in blood. Your clothes are evidence now, and I am going to come back in here and I'm going to get them. If not, you're just going to be standing here in your underwear.
- Drops: What underwear? I don't wear drawers.
- Nick: This is not a compromise, Kellen. (to the guard) You might want to close your eyes or turn around.
- Drops (to Nick): Now c'mon, Crime Lab, I thought we was old buddies.
- Nick: The only thing we have in common, Kellen are the dead bodies that seem to keep piling up around you.
- Mrs. James (to Greg): Taking one of my boys wasn't good enough was it? Now you've got to take both? What did we ever do to you?
- Greg: Mrs. James, I don't have anything against you or your family.
- Mrs. James: Then what is it? Is it the money? Then take it! I just want my boy back!
- Sara: Mrs. James, you need to calm down...
- Mrs. James: I'm not talking to you!
- Sara: You're going to get yourself in trouble here.
- Officer: Ma'am. You're gonna have to leave.
- Mrs. James (to the officer): Protecting the nice white boy from the mean black lady. (to Greg) You've gotta help me. You owe me. You owe me!
- (The officer pulls her down the hall and Greg follows)
- Greg: What do I owe you?
- Mrs. James: Huh. Yeah, like you don't know.
- Greg: I'll tell you what I know. I know that Demetrius was a killer. And Aaron, Aaron made the decision to hang out with Drops. He made the decision to do drugs and to bring that girl into the limo. That's not on me. It's on him. And you.
- Mrs. James: Aaron is all I have left. (walks away)
- Drops' Attorney: Captain Brass, I've seen the ballistics report. The shots fired from inside the limo were fired second. That's textbook self-defense.
- Drops (smiling): Textbook self-defense. Told you, forensics be jammin' a brother up.
- Grissom (to Greg): The D.A tells me you requested that he go easy on Aaron James.
- Greg: Yeah.
- Grissom: He's getting a suspended sentence. He was released on his own recognizance. If the kid's brother hadn't died, would you have done the same?
- Greg: I don't know, I just, uh... Do you think it's wrong?
- Grissom: Doesn't matter what I think.
