Stella: "I knew it would be a no-brainer for you."
Hawkes: "...she didn't just say that."
Mac and Flack: "She did."
On a case about the death of a bike messenger. Danny delivers some bad news, Stella is upset.
Danny: "Hey, don't kill the messenger. [Pause.] See what I did there?"
Stella: "Yeah, it was cute."
That's one of the things I love best about CSI:NY. They say the most horrible jokes, and they're exactly the jokes you would say. And they all know how entirely horrible the jokes are. CSI has it too (Grissom's pre-credit one liner, Greg's jokes like "Urine trouble!"), but CSINY makes an art out of it.
Dude. In the first episode of second season, "The Way We Were" (by 46bliss, made famous by the VM episode "Silence of the Lamb") is played! Sweet! And no, there wasn't actually any of the lyrics. But I could still tell. Because I've listened to the VM soundtrack so much I can pick up the beginning of one of the songs when less than two seconds is played in a commercial, so I could pick out the song for this montage, yo.
I need a CSI:NY icon. Or two. Nah, three. It'll be Danny, Flack, and Hawkes. My boys. Oh yes.
