… sejauh ini.

Yang pertama, Organ Grinder. Menambah pengetahuan antara lain bahwa pembunuhan dengan racun adalah kekhasan pelaku wanita yang mendendam.

Nick menelusuri organ beracun yang telah didonorkan, di antaranya ginjal. Dialog dengan sang penerima donor sungguh mengiris hati.

CARL MERCER:  I must’ve had 100 tests.  How’d you doctors miss this?

NICK:  A heavy metal like selenium presents so rarely that it’s

CARL MERCER:  You don’t look like a doctor.

NICK:  No, sir, no, I’m not.  I’m Nick Stokes.  I’m with the Las Vegas
Crime Lab.

PHYSICIAN:  I’ll be right outside.

NICK:  Thank you, doctor.

NICK:  I was hoping I might be able to get a sample of that new kidney of yours.

CARL MERCER:  A sample?

NICK:  Biopsy. A sliver.

CARL MERCER:  You mean open me up again?

NICK:  Maybe an invasive scope.  The only way I can get an accurate barometer of
the poison in Mr. Fairmont’s system is through one of his organs.

CARL MERCER:  I’m sorry, young man but this is my kidney now.  I waited four years.  I can’t have anyone cut into me for it.  I just
can’t.

NICK:  Hey, I understand.  Thank you for your time.

NICK:  I like your watch, man, that’s cool.

CARL MERCER:  It broke while I was down in surgery–stuck on 11:00.  Think the
Lord’s trying to tell me something?

Suatu hari, Nick dipanggil Mr. Mercer.

CARL MERCER:  What if I could tell you?  My body's rejecting the organ.  Doctor 
says it's got nothing to do with poison.  It's antibodies.

NICK:  I'm sorry.  

CARL MERCER:  I told you this watch stopped while I was down in surgery?  It's 
funny ... it's like it knew all along the kidney wasn't going to take.  
Anyway... there's one last good thing I can do before I leave this earth.  So 
... how do we do this?


Yang kedua, Caged. Saya sudah terkesan oleh perwatakan Aaron Pratt, penderita autis 
yang mengantongi dua titel master dan bekerja di perpustakaan. Sepanjang episode ini,
saya tidak mampu menerka pelaku pembunuhan. Apalagi motifnya.
Grissom menghadapi Aaron Pratt dengan sangat profesional dan manusiawi.
Dia tidak menilai pemuda itu aneh hanya karena tidak senang 
barang-barangnya diubah posisi.

NICK:  Is this guy the real deal?

GRISSOM:  I think he's incapable of deception, Nick.  We're just witnessing 
displaced anxiety.  I mean, look around.  Everything's in precise order.

NICK:  Organized by size.

GRISSOM:  Order provides comfort.  His life is based on routine.  Without it, he 
can't function.

Lalu Grissom bertukar pengetahuan dengan Aaron. Saya selalu takjub akan kemahiran
penulis skenarionya menyisipkan dialog macam ini.
AARON PRATT:  "Then must you speak of one that loved not wisely ... 

GRISSOM:  ... but too well."

AARON PRATT:  Othello, act five, scene two, lines 343 and 344.

Nah, siapa bilang film thriller cuma modal sadis dan seram-seram?
