Loco Motives is the tenth episode of seventh season in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Plot OutlineEdit

A man found alive and up to his waist in solid concrete with a dead woman next to him proves extremely difficult to identify.

The third victim of the Miniature Killer is found at a chicken processing plant and a possible link to the first victim is discovered.


  • Loco Motives is ironic because the term 'loco motives' would imply that someone has crazy intentions.

David: You know, we're getting kind of backed up in here.
Doc Robbins: The only one I hear complaining about it is you.

Suzy (to Warrick): I like you. You're a giant.
Warrick (laughs): And you're a princess.
Suzy: Thank you. (giggles & playing with her hair)

Catherine (to Max while he's stuck in cement): Are you ready to give me a name? You know, you are in a very deep hole, in every sense of the word, my friend. Think about that while we chisel you out. It's going to take a few hours. Assuming we're careful. See you!

Sara (to Grissom): You look like the kid who just found the prize in the bottom of the Cracker Jack box.

Greg: Unappetizing place to get your rocks off.
Grissom: Not if you have a poultry fetish.

Mannleigh (to Brass): I have no idea how Raymundo ended up dead. I liked that boy.
Brass: Apparently, so did your wife. She was spending some quality time with Raymundo down at the plant.
Mannleigh: If I killed every guy that banged my Bubbles, they'd be stacking up like cord wood.
Brass: So you have no problem with it?
Mannleigh: Look, Bubbles is an insatiable slut, but she's my slut and I love her.

Brass: Construction crew found him this morning. Woman's dead and he's not talking. Wouldn't even give me his name even after I gave him my name!
(Catherine is laughing in the background)
Grissom: Did you, uh, pull his wallet?
Brass: Everything is just the way I found him. (Catherine is still heard laughing) You know, I figured some knuckle head came in off the street, found him figured he had a free pass and picked his pocket. (Catherine is still laughing) Anyway, I'm talking to people on the street (starts to laugh) I'll let you know what we find.
Grissom (smiling): Catherine, do you need a minute?
Catherine (snickering behind her hand): Yes, yes, I mean...I mean no, Gil, I-I'm good. (to Max, the guy in cement) So how's your day going? (starts to laugh again)
Max: Lady, the best day I've ever had is worse than the worst day you've ever imagined.
Catherine (smirks): Oh, I doubt that.

Catherine (to Max who is in cement): Look, you're not going anywhere. It'll be a lot better for you if you just cooperate and just tell us what happened.
Max: You wanna know what happened?
Catherine (trying not to laugh): Mmhmm.
Max: Figure it out yourself.
Grissom (smiling): That's the fun part.
(Catherine starts to laugh again)

Max: I'm the guy who buys his daughter a puppy for her eighth birthday, and the next day, he backs out of the driveway and...
(Catherine, from inside the observation room, rolls her eyes and shakes her head.)
Brass: No. No. Don't tell me you ran over the puppy.
Max: No. I ran over my daughter. (Catherine's jaw drops.) Twenty years later, she still walks funny. (Catherine laughs quietly.)

(As Grissom is watching the video email Ernie Dell has sent to him confessing to the murders)
Ernie Dell: My name is Ernest Edward Dell, I was born in 1946, in Ames, Iowa. My life's been hard, but I don't complain, I never expected better. I'm good with my hands, I make things, I fix things. I'm a handyman. It's what I am. A man has a right to a... an honest day's pay. Me, I service the machinery of death, so that people can eat. If that makes me evil, then so be it. I'm not the sociable type, I... I know that. Spend any amount of time around people, you get your heart broke. Treachery, hypocrisy, promise of love. Look into the mouth of a person and you'll find lies, wriggling there like maggots, waiting to grow wings. The world has gone mad. A man could kill from sun up, to sunset, and still his work would never be done. (kills himself)
