INT. CSI - DNA LAB - DAY:
Greg is in the quiet lab sitting at the table working. Grissom rushes in and says, "I hear you're backlogged." Greg explains why. Grissom grabs the paperwork in front of Greg and puts it aside on the cart with all the samples on it. He then pushes the car out the door and into the hallway where it stops when it hits the wall. Everyone stops as they see the cart. Nick steps out into the hallway to see what's up. Grissom takes out a file folder and the samples and orders Greg to work on the case of the dead baby only. Greg agrees. Grissom steps out of the lab. In the Hallway, Nick and Sara watch. Best Dialog:
Grissom: "I hear you're backlogged."
Greg: "Twenty "unknowns" from some drug shoot-out. FBI special request. Sheriff told me to clear it off my counter before I do anything else."
Greg: "Yeah. You can almost smell Quantico, you know?"
Grissom grabs the paperwork in front of Greg and puts it aside on the cart with all the samples on it. He then pushes the car out the door and into the hallway where it stops when it hits the wall.
Grissom: "There. Now they're off your counter. Zachary Anderson, DOB 01-23-01. Date of death, three hours ago. Until we find out how and why...this is the only case you work on."
Greg: "Yes, sir." My Comment:
One of my favorite scenes ever. Grissom´s anger. Greg´s fear. He respects Grissom a lot. But it is not his fault that he has to follow the orders of the sheriff. I suppose after this clash with Grissom he is going to put Grissom always first no matter what or who interferes.
Nick and Sara are watching and both have sympathy for Greg. Sweet.
