When a man is found murdered at an elaborate holiday party complete with real snow and live reindeer, the CSI team is brought in to investigate.
At an elaborate private seasonal party complete with real snow and live reindeer, the Santa is fatally stabbed. The teams finds he switches places, barely noticed, with host Ryan Bonham, whose pre-teen son Blake is the only witness of an intruder. Furthermore, the fake snows got mixed with a Mexican cartel's smuggled cocaine.
David Hodges: Aren't vaguely Dickensain suburban kids Russell's department?
Captain Jim Brass: Happy holidays!
D.B. Russell: Not for Santa, I hear
Captain Jim Brass: There is gonna be a lot of dissapointed kids this year
D.B. Russell: David? Got a name yet?
David Phillips: Lucky for us, the victim was not a Secret Santa, he has got business cards, everything.
Morgan Brody: Why do you think Santa hanging out here all by his lonesome after the party?
David Hodges: He was probably recovering from the forced celebration of a hyper commercialized holiday that lost all sense of wonder.
Morgan Brody: Wow, sounds like somebody got a lot of coal in his stocking as a kid.
David Hodges: I wish! Instead of regaling me with stories about Santa, my scientist father lectured me on the impossibilities of the whole thing.
Morgan Brody: What? He didn't think a fat man in his sled could make it around the world in one night?
David Hodges: He also had a problem with the climate damage caused by toy factories on the North Pole.
Morgan Brody: Gosh, I hope I don't have you as my Secret Santa!
D.B. Russell: This woman worked at Bonham Reality?
Morgan Brody: No, actually she worked at another fine Vegas establishment: the Cathedral Strip Club. She's a featured dancer.
D.B. Russell: Miss Reindeer. Wow, that's quite an honor!
Morgan Brody: According to her bio she beat out seven other strippers for the rack...antlers...crown
D.B. Russell: I got it.
Captain Jim Brass: You're both professional pole dancers: you work the stripper pole, he works the North Pole!
D.B. Russell: So the guy we thought had the best motive for killing Jayson Walt is actually the guy who has the least desire to see any harm come to him!
Captain Jim Brass: He'll only talk to one person.
Nick Stokes: Who?
David Hodges: Me? Last time I saw him, I scared him!
Morgan Brody: He said he wanna to talk to you, and I quote: 'The Funny Science Man'.
David Hodges: A compliment, I suppose.
