  • Sara can't handle dealing with saliva. She smiles to control her gag reflex when dealing with the spit bucket.
  • All of the crimes take place in the same building.
  • As on is about to hear the intro music for the show, Grissom's pager goes off. After the pager goes off a third time, it is then that the intro music goes into full swing. for more clarity I got this off; This is the first (and possibly only) time thus-far that the pre-title sequence opener was used to mislead the audience. If you listen carefully, the telltale music used to signify the transition between opener and opening sequence begins playing during Grissom's last few bits of dialog in the boxing-ring crime scene, but stops when he gets a page. No doubt that many viewers thought the show was going to start at this point, only to be surprised as the opener continued longer than usual, to show just how busy the team will be in the episode.
