- Sofia (about the deceased police officer): I was watching her die and I didn't even realize it.
- Grissom: Look, Sofia, there weren't any carbon monoxide sensors in the apartment so no one could have known. And in fact if I hadn't gone away we would have had another month to work with; you would have never been in that position.
- Sofia: But it doesn't make you feel any better either, does it? (Grissom shakes his head slightly. There's a long pause) You know the scene has been released, Ms. Tallman was pretty insistent. They offered to leave a uniform with her but she wasn't having it. (pause) So what are you looking for? The miniature's complete.
- Grissom: It's not perfect though. Officer Kamen was not the intended victim.
- Sofia: Well she was dressed like her, she died in the right position, so did the cat.
- Grissom: I'm still not sure it's perfect enough. (the phone rings, Grissom answers) Grissom. Yeah. (pause) Okay. (puts the phone down) Now it's perfect.
- At the end of the episode, Grissom states that the Miniature Killer has murdered five people, but they have actually only killed four people so far: Izzy Delancy, Penny Garden, Raymundo Suarez and Officer Kamen, in this episode. Barbara Tallman was suffocated by her brother.
- Hodges has a cat named Kobayashi Maru (or little Kobe and Mr. K) as he also calls him.
- The miniature paper is dated February 17, 2007. Catherine states that it is dated "the day after tomorrow" which made the current day February 15, 2007 which is the date of the original airing.
