Grissom: Hey, Nick, bring her back.
Nick: Why?
Grissom: I want to find out why a mother would play dead.


  • During Dan's interrogation, his lawyer refers to a Brent Moyer admitting to breaking the glass. The character's name is Brent Martin, not Brent Moyer
  • During the phone call, you can see it raining. If it rained that night, the finger print on the rock that was outside would have been washed away by the rain, and the roof doesn't look like it extended far enough out to cover the rock.
  • Nitpick: There is no way that a fingerprint would have surfaced that dark on such a porous item as the rock.


  • There's a full moon that can be seen in the sky when they show the shot of the house for the first time.
  • The picture of the Werewolf, Grissom is looking at in his office is the picture used on the Wikipedia website in the article about werewolves and the words used by Grissom explaining the werewolf seems to be taken from the same article.
  • The fatal bullet: Nick identifies the fatal bullet as being made of silver. The idea that a silver bullet is one sure way of killing a werewolf is more of an invention of modern literature than part of folklore and tradition.
  • Hypertrichosis (the condition Grissom mentions) is just a medical term for excessive body and facial hair growth.
