Dog Eat Dog is the ninth episode of the sixth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


When a man is found dead in a dumpster having literally eaten himself to death, the CSIs retrace his steps to find out how it could have happened. Meanwhile, a divorcing couple are found dead together on the floor of their house, where their dog becomes the first suspect.


  • While Hodges is sorting out the stomach contents he labels all the containers with the different types of food: one says "mac & cheese" another "bacon"; etc. And on the last container, the one with the newspaper ad for the buffet (which the victim had swallowed), there's a label that says "WEIRD."
  • During this episode, when they "fade to black" for the commercial breaks, the first time you hear a chomping sound and the second time a dog barking.
  • The Prader-Willi syndrome's characteristics are hypotonia, hypogonadism, hyperphagia, cognitive impairment and difficult behaviors.
  • In this episode, we learn that Brass is cleared by the review board for the shooting of Officer Bell.
  • Hodges can't stand the smell of hot dogs especially hot-dog-breath.
  • This is the last episode where Nick has his mustache.


  • The "Aunt Jackpot's Pretzels" napkin has the logo superimposed on a blank napkin. The logo seamlessly covers the bottom part of the stack of napkins where several napkin layers overlap. The logo is also very bright and reflective.


Sara: Beat-up car in a Lexus neighborhood.
Sofia: We ran the plates. RO doesn't live here. We're tracking her down.
Nick (reads the bumper sticker as they walk pass the car): "Bitch on wheels." Can't wait to meet her.

Hodges: I heard your case is going to the dogs.
Nick: Oh, Hodges, heel or better yet play dead.
Hodges: Play nice. I'm throwing you a bone.

Sara (to Nick about dead victims' record collection): There's something missing between The Beach Boys and Billy Joel.
Nick & Sara: The Beatles.

Catherine: Do you think we may be able to ID the hotdogs through the ingredients?
Hodges: No. Believe it or not most hotdog companies are very proprietary over their recipes.
Catherine: How about though griddle marks?
Hodges: Oh, yeah, I'll run it through the hot dog appliances database.

Grissom: A hotdog at the ballpark tastes better than steak at the Ritz.
Greg: Well, I can tell when you're quoting something. (he sits) Who said it?
Grissom: Humphrey Bogart. Did you know that the term "hotdog" was actually coined at a baseball game? (Greg shakes his head) New York polo grounds somewhere around 1867. A German butcher was selling something that he called "Dachshund Sausages" out of his pie wagon. He put 'em on a roll so that his customers wouldn't burn their fingers. He'd yell out, "get your Dachshund Sausages, they're red hot." (Greg looks like he wants to get up and leave) Soon, all the vendors at the polo grounds were sellin' 'em too, but they were too lazy to say "Dachshund Sausages." So they just called 'em "hotdogs."


  • Big Weenie by Eminem (heard when Greg is examining the hot dogs)
  • I Want it All by Depeche Mode (heard when Dr. Robbins finds the bullet inside of the body)
  • Hung Up by Madonna
  • My Name Is by Eminem
  • Baby's Got a Temper by Prodigy (heard during the eating tournament)
