Zeitgeisters, as you know, this site is has a love-hate relationship with the television series CSI. Today, this continues as we mine the first CSI (the one I insist on referring to as Original Recipe) for verbal gems.
William Petersen plays CSI’s resident Sherlock Holmes-type, Gil Grissom. He follows obscure trails of evidence until they reveal the story of that week’s murder.
I dug up these quotes from various CSI sites and I observed a good deal of love for The Gris. There are a number of folk on-line who want to dim the lights and get freaky with this fictional forensic ‘tec. Since I only feel that way about Mrs C from Happy Days, I deem the Grissom Groupies sickos whereas I am merely eccentric.
Gris has a way with a one-liner. Check it out:
“People don’t vanish Jim, it’s a molecular impossibility.”
“Amazing how the sight of blood can clear a room.”
“It took five people to kill him. It would only have taken one person to ask him if he was okay.”
“It looks like these guys went to a fight and a hockey game broke out.”
“Yeah. I’m pretty good at mouth-to-mouth.”
“No man is a complete mystery except to himself..”
“Looking for things, analyzing them, trying to figure out the world… that’s the life.”
“If you’re looking the clock, you aren’t looking the case.”
“What makes him a freak, besides his shirt?”
“Wherever you live is your temple, if you treat it like one.”
“If you chase two rabbits, you lose them both.”
“When you assume you make an ass out of you and me.”
Keep watching, a quotable quote is just around the corner!
