CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Episode Scripts

N/A - Mea Culpa

I need you to answer the same questions I asked you at the first trial.
And I need you to answer them honestly, just as you did back then.
On December 20, 1999, you responded to a call at 2028 Boulder Highway.
- Is that correct ? - Yes.
Can you describe the crime scene ? It was a hardware store.
I entered through the back door.
The victim had been severely beaten.
And our forensics determined that the murder weapon was a wrench.
Exhibit A.
Do you recognize this object ? Yes.
I bagged and processed this wrench.
My initials are on the seal.
Where did you find it ? It was in a toolbox under the kitchen sink at Garbett's Gourmet, which is a restaurant next to the crime scene.
Now, are you certain that this wrench was used to kill the victim ? Yes.
We found trace blood in the metal grooves.
And the DNA matched the victim's.
What, if anything, did you find on the handle ? We found the defendant, Mr.
Garbett's fingerprints.
We also found his prints at the hardware store.
What else did you find at the store ? Well, it appeared that the killer tried to cover his tracks by setting a fire, a lack of sufficient combustibles may have thwarted his effort.
Dr.
Grissom.
Exhibit B.
Do you recognize this ? Yes.
It's a matchbook.
Did you find this matchbook at the scene ? Dr.
Grissom, just so we can be clear, this is the matchbook that you found at the crime scene.
Is that correct ? Your Honor, may I take a short break ? Prosecution requests a ten-minute recess.
The defense asks that Dr.
Grissom answer the question now.
Answer the question, then we'll break.
Yes, this is the matchbook I collected at the crime scene.
All right, we'll take a ten-minute recess.
So, you wanna tell me what this is all about ? Grissom, the defendant was found guilty at his first trial.
The only reason we're back in court is because his new lawyer convinced some appellate judge the original jury instructions were faulty.
This has nothing to do with the evidence.
There's a fingerprint on this matchbook.
So ? I don't remember it.
It's not in my notes.
The evidence seal isn't broken.
If the print's there now, it was there before.
The defendant's fingerprints are all loop patterns.
This is an arch.
It's not a match.
This is not the defendant's print.
Are you sure ? You know, when the defense hears about this, they are going to call every other piece of evidence into question.
I don't need to tell you what that means.
I've given them reasonable doubt.
Heard we have a problem.
The Middle East has a problem.
You missed a fingerprint on a key piece of evidence.
I'm trying to keep an open mind.
Then how do you explain it ? At the moment, I can't.
Could someone have substituted a different matchbook ? Well, the evidence seal wasn't broken.
The matchbook's appearance is consistent with the crime scene photos.
Since your original testimony differs from the actual physical evidence, I thought I'd inform you I've opened a supervisory inquiry.
Well, that's good, Conrad.
You know, I can't recall a lab director as expeditious as you.
- You okay, Bobby ? - Been better.
What the hell happened ? I was about to test-fire the Mac-10 when it accidentally discharged.
Don't know how it happened.
Should've been more careful.
Whose Whose case you working ? Sara Sidle and Greg Sanders.
Gun was found next to a dead body at an off-Strip parking lot.
All right.
Make sure you file a report.
- Yes, sir.
- Everybody back to work.
Just keep me posted.
I remember this case.
The Garbetts owned a restaurant that was next door to the victim's hardware store.
Max Larson owned the private alleyway that was behind both places.
That's right.
He blocked the alleyway with a dumpster.
Yeah, the guy was a jerk.
Well, he claimed the restaurant's delivery trucks were clogging the alley.
Didn't the Garbetts sue to have the Dumpster removed ? They lost.
There was no easement in their title.
And without access for deliveries, the restaurant business just dried up.
All the physical evidence pointed to Garbett.
And according to the victim's business partner, Garbett had an argument with the victim the day before the murder.
Garbett's appeal didn't call the forensics into question.
Why are we here ? I'm calling the forensics into question.
I printed this matchbook.
There was no print.
Take a look at it now.
Well, the fingerprint's pink So you used Ninhydrin ? Well, I know that on some surfaces, Ninhydrin can take time to develop a print.
It was in last May's Journal of Forensic Sciences.
I remember the article.
But I can't remember whether the variables in the test case are consistent with ours.
Well, if the print matches the suspect, who cares ? It doesn't match.
So, you and Warrick take over the file, make sure all of the other evidence is beyond reproach.
Catherine, you supervise.
To avoid any appearance of impropriety, I'm going to be hands off.
Sofia.
You do know that the Journal's back issues are available on-line.
The lab has a password.
When you read from a computer screen, you have to lean in.
I like to lean back.
Therefore, I prefer a hard copy.
Is this what your looking for ? May.
Yes.
Thank you.
News travels so fast around here.
Ecklie travels fast.
Look, in case you're not up-to-date on your QA/QC memos, I've been the lab's quality control officer for the past year.
Congratulations.
That job requires a detail-oriented person.
Grissom, I've been assigned to your inquiry.
I just wanted to give you the heads-up.
I'll be impartial.
I'd expect nothing less.
Margaritaville ? That is still the lab's password, right ? Warrick, in your field report, you documented the collection of several hairs near the body, but DNA never analyzed them.
Well, the DA had sufficient evidence and filed charges before I could give the hair to Greg, so I moved on to another case.
Process the hairs now.
Yeah.
Catherine, do you remember why you were late to this crime scene ? Eddie had a gig and you couldn't find a baby-sitter.
Actually, I kind of made that up.
Eddie did have a gig.
It ended early and he and I Well, let's just say that not all my memories of him are bad ones.
Which reminds me, you, at the time, were going out with that assistant manager of the Flamingo.
Susan.
Boy, did she have it bad for you.
She kept calling while we were working the scene.
You had to shut your phone off.
Yeah, well, now she's VP of Food Services, so I get free steak and eggs every Sunday morning.
Free steak and eggs means she didn't know about the flight attendant.
Does everyone know my business around here ? Okay, Nicky, since you have such a good memory, why don't you explain the unidentified prints that you lifted from the murder weapon.
I lifted six prints off the wrench.
I ran them through I-AFIS.
Five were a match to the suspect.
One was unidentified.
Now, at the time, we all agreed that that print was irrelevant, because the wrench was found in the common area.
Okay, well, we're going to have to compare that unidentified print with this matchbook print.
Will do.
Hey, Catherine .
we didn't do anything wrong here.
I agree.
But the prosecution may not see it that way.
Hey, how's Bobby doing ? Shaken, but working hard.
Trying to figure out why the gun discharged.
Well, fortunately, Bobby dodged his bullet unlike our victim.
C.
O.
D's a single gunshot wound to the leg.
And it severed the femoral artery.
We processed the guy's jeans.
Tight GSR pattern around the entrance hole.
So, he was either shot by someone at close range who left the gun behind, or it was self-inflicted.
Why would the shooter leave the gun behind ? He probably wouldn't.
And most suicides are through the torso or through the head.
- So if it wasn't intentional - It was accidental.
Greg insert this rod into the hole.
Trajectory is up to down.
Consistent with a self-inflicted, accidental injury.
Have you been able to I.
D.
him ? No wallet.
Prints didn't hit.
No relatives came forward.
So, I'm calling him John Doe Number 124.
A perfect match.
Someone other than the suspect touched the matches and the wrench.
The wrench was found in a toolbox in the suspect's restaurant.
The murder happened after closing.
Who else had access to that restaurant ? Mrs.
Garbett.
It's, uh, Mrs.
Katz now.
I remarried.
Okay Mrs.
Katz.
Duly noted.
Please, have a seat.
I appreciate you coming down here and meeting with me.
Look, my ex-husband called me from jail.
I know about the new trial.
But this case has nothing to do with me.
Not anymore.
He got a life sentence.
The crime lab testified.
You think he's guilty ? Jason was a quiet man.
Bottled everything up.
In 25 years of marriage, he raised his voice maybe a dozen times.
But when he expressed himself the neighborhood knew.
Mom, I got your voice mail.
- Keith.
- What's going on ? Mr.
Stokes is with the crime lab.
Look, we'll help in any way we can.
What I'd really like to do is get a list of anyone who had access to that restaurant five years ago.
Sure.
May I ask why ? Recent evidence - has come to light - What evidence ? Oh, now that I can't discuss.
My father's innocent.
My son has never stopped believing in his father.
He has sacrificed everything for Jason : Moved back to Vegas, hired a new attorney, poured all his money into the appeal.
So you weren't living in town at the time of the murder ? - No, I was living in L.
A.
- Okay.
Look whatever you need from us Mom ? I have some old records back at the house.
I could send them over.
Yeah, that'd be great.
You're listening to music.
It was Greg's suggestion.
No, it's good.
Well, maybe not your music taste, but we'll work on that.
You have my DNA profile for the hair sample I gave you ? No.
No ? Do you need more time ? No the sample you sent me wasn't human so I sent it over to Trace.
Maybe Hodges can tell you something.
All right.
Thank you.
And Mia, Avril's fine, but if you really want to experience musical heartache, you should check out Nina Simone.
Grissom, Judge Witherspoon wants me in her chambers first thing in the morning.
She's going to demand a full update, Gil.
I can't explain the appearance of the print on the matchbook.
That's what I'm trying to figure out.
You're making the lab look bad.
Word has it you've reopened the entire case.
An unexamined hair and an unidentified print on the murder weapon ? Grissom, did we make a mistake and arrest the wrong guy ? I don't know.
Hey.
We gotta talk.
Ecklie's used his hot line to the sheriff.
The whole department knows about the inquiry.
There's nothing I can do about that.
Yeah, well, I want to give you a heads-up, 'cause here's how it's gonna break down : In order to appear objective, Ecklie's gonna follow Sofia's recommendations.
The problem is, she's Acting Supervisor of Days, so she needs Ecklie to sign off to keep her gig.
And you think she'll say whatever Ecklie wants.
Yeah.
And this isn't just about the Garbett case.
He's looking into your whole team.
And your ability to lead them.
Poor Conrad.
I hate to tell you, but when it comes to politics, he whips your ass.
So watch your back; it's gonna get ugly.
Thanks.
The hair on the right is a human hair.
The hair on the left is from your five- year-old crime scene.
Given the big fat medulla, I'd say canine, and given its coarseness I'd say it could be a poodle or a Portuguese Water Dog.
What ?! A Portuguese Water Dog.
They were found on fishing vessels in the 1800s.
Are you serious ? Warrick, I thought you were following it up with DNA.
I am.
The hairs got kicked to Trace.
Yeah, they're from a dog.
Very obvious under the microscope.
I will find out if the victim or suspect owned a dog.
- I'm on it.
- Thanks.
Ecklie was so pissed when I told him about these hairs.
- You told Ecklie ? - Yeah.
He's a friend.
I sent him a card for his promotion.
The guy was very touched by my thoughtfulness.
We all are.
Are you finished with the gun ? Yeah, I figured out what caused that A.
D.
Some garage gunsmith tried to turn this baby into a machine gun.
That is a big-time felony.
Not to mention dangerous.
Here, take a look.
See, the trip has been ground down, which prevents the bolt from locking back.
Vic never even pulled the trigger.
Did you get an I.
D.
off the serial number ? It's also ground down.
Nearly halfway through the metal.
Well, I love a challenge.
Well, it's all yours.
The Garbetts' restaurant employed six waiters, two cooks, and a busboy.
All of whom would've had access to the kitchen and to the wrench.
Right: Garbett's ex-wife, three of the waiters and both cooks prints were in I-AFIS because of work cards, but none was a match to the mystery print.
And what about the other four ? I ran their socials to get their addresses.
I'll grab a uniform, go bang on some doors.
I'm Nick Stokes.
Good day, sir.
My name's Nick Stokes.
I'm with the Las Vegas Crime Lab.
I'm reinvestigating Max Larson's homicide.
I was hoping to get your, uh, your fingerprints.
It would help eliminate you as a suspect.
Thank you, ma'am.
Max didn't like dogs.
We don't allow them in the store.
How about you, Mr.
Reeba.
Do you down a dog ? No.
Mr.
Brown, what's this about ? I'm sorry, I'm not at liberty to discuss ongoing cases.
Look, I have a right to know.
Max was my business partner.
Well, all I can tell you is that the defendant was granted a new trial.
Based on a friggin' technicality.
I talked to the D.
A.
myself.
The crime lab is reviewing the case file now.
Garbett killed Max.
I was right here when he tried to shake us down.
If you don't move that dumpster, I swear, - I'm gonna kill you ! - Judge says I'm in the right.
- You can go to hell.
- You're gonna regret this.
So tell me: how many customers did you have tonight ? Hey, Rick what's a number less than one ? This isn't over.
I guess he could've handled it better.
But Garbett's delivery trucks they were always blocking access to our parking lot.
We complained He refused to do anything about it, so we exercised our legal rights.
A judge rules in our favor.
Two days later, Max is murdered.
Can you imagine killing over an incident like this ? I've seen people kill for a lot less, sir.
Mr.
Reeba, you and your partner were joint owners of this property, right ? - Yes.
- With right of survivorship ? Correct.
And when he died, you got it all, isn't that right ? What are you getting at ? Nothing.
It's just a question.
Video Spectral Analysis.
I want to see if I can bring out the image on the matchbook.
We didn't have this equipment five years ago.
That's why I'm doing it now.
How was the door-to-door ? Good exercise.
Everyone volunteered their prints but no match.
Warrick, just the guy I wanted to see.
Ecklie, you know I'm real busy It won't take long.
My office.
I'll cut to the chase.
Did Supervisor Grissom instruct you to analyze the hairs you found near Max Larson's body ? It was my job to bring the hairs to DNA.
- Did you ? - Yes.
- Five years ago.
- No, yesterday.
- Look, if there was a problem - Have a seat.
In my capacity as Assistant Director, I'm now privy to personnel files.
You've done outstanding work over the years, Warrick.
Truly.
I see commendations from detectives and D.
A.
's I also see you have a gambling problem.
I had a gambling problem.
What's your point ? Well, it appears Supervisor Grissom counseled you appropriately.
That's correct.
So he gave you access to departmental resources to help you deal with the problem ? No he helped me - by being a friend.
- Good.
You've been a big help.
Thanks.
Hey.
This is confidential.
I don't have an office, so The inquiry into Grissom.
Just reviewing all documentation.
Case identifiers, analysts' initials Your responsibility is to confirm that all conclusions drawn are supported by the data.
- They are.
- Excuse me ? I worked on this case.
The conclusions, they are supported.
I assume that's what you're finding ? Catherine I appreciate your interest, but I think it's prudent to reserve my findings for the Assistant Director.
Right.
Neil, you got a minute ? I don't think I have any work pending for you.
I need your expertise.
Matchbook print.
- Everybody's talking about it.
- Well, good.
Scientific discoveries arise through discourse.
Now Ninhydrin works by reacting to one end of a protein chain to form Ruhemann's purple Which makes fingerprints visible.
Protein chains are made up of a series of amino acids, sometimes a hundred units long.
But only one end of the chain has the H-N-H The N-terminus.
It's the only part of the protein molecule that interacts with Ninhydrin.
But fingerprints are subjected to bacterial degradation, which causes the proteins to break down into smaller amino acids.
Upping the number of N-termini.
And making the fingerprint more visible.
But because new fingerprints are sometimes composed of fully intact proteins, you could spray Ninhydrin, and not see a result for months, yes ? Or in rare cases, years depending on the rate of degradation.
My matchbook print was inside a plastic evidence bag.
That could affect the rate.
Let's see plastic Plastic traps in heat and humidity.
Bacteria would continue to break down over time.
So theoretically, the bag was acting as a humidifying chamber.
I'd say you were processing a print in slow motion.
Thank you, Neil.
I'm confused.
Do we think the dead guy bought a defective gun, or was he selling a gun he'd already modified ? Maybe he modified it for his own use.
If that was the case, then why would he need to file down the serial numbers ? Good point.
Okay, so you take the polishing compound, and you rub it on the obliterated serial number.
And then you hit the spot with the wheel until it's mirror smooth.
Fry's Reagent.
It differentially eats away at the compressed area.
To expose the denser metal of the serial number.
Take a look.
Pop goes the serial number ! Run it through NCIC and local pawn shops.
See if we can get an address.
All right.
- How you doing, Greg ? - Excuse me.
Sara.
- You got a minute ? - I guess.
Flitz's Compound.
I'm sure you're not polishing your jewelry in the lab.
That would be unauthorized.
What can I do for you ? As you know, it's my job to review everyone's file.
I just want to make sure you finished up with your PEAP counselor.
That's none of your business, Ecklie.
Well, not only is it my business, but I plan to speak with your supervisor.
About what ? You have updated him, right ? Yeah, yeah, we've had an abbreviated conversation.
I'm doing fine.
I completed my required number of sessions months ago.
Grissom failed to note that conversation in your file.
But I'll take care of it.
All right.
Thanks.
Expose the matchbook to white, and that covers the spectrum.
I'll bring out the illuminants and contrast.
Rotate it 180.
"Club PCH".
- "Los Angeles".
- Is that probative ? Maybe.
Defendant's son lived in L.
A.
So I did a background check on Keith Garbett.
He has no record.
Moved to California two years before the murder.
He opened a veterinary practice in Encino.
He was a veterinarian ? Didn't I just say that ? We found some dog hairs at the crime scene.
Out of context, it didn't really mean anything.
Well, now it does.
- Mr.
Stokes.
- Keith.
Well, tell me you've got some good news.
Dad's lawyer says the case could get tossed.
I'm Detective Jim Brass, Las Vegas Police.
We'd like to ask you a couple questions.
- Sure.
- You ever been to Club PCH ? I did some clubbing in my 20's.
What does this have to do with the investigation ? Keith, what we'd really like to go ahead and do is get a set of your fingerprints, if we could.
Okay ? Why ? You know, I'm sorry, but I don't exactly trust you guys.
You destroyed my family.
You let my dad rot in jail for five years, and now you're coming after me ? No way.
Forget it.
I thought that went well.
There's more than one way to get his prints.
Trash on the curb Public property, right ? Don't need a warrant.
This conversation is on the record.
Part of the official inquiry into the Max Larson case.
Understood.
Five years ago, were you part of a team that processed a homicide at 2028 Boulder Highway ? You know I was.
Specifically, what tasks did Supervisor Grissom assign to you ? Gil doesn't micromanage.
We all know what needs to be done.
I photo-documented the scene, I collected blood evidence, and I brought the charred newspaper to Trace.
In the analysis phase, did Grissom review your reports with you ? Are you asking if he performed a supervisory review ? - It's policy.
- He must have.
I'm sure he did.
Are you doing all this for the sake of the lab or to indict Grissom ? Catherine, there are a number of talented CSIs, like yourself, who have put in to be supervisors.
I just want to make sure the right people are in the right place.
About my request I really would like to supervise days.
Right.
You're a single mother.
Better hours.
And I bet you could use the extra cash.
No, this promotion isn't about money.
Must be nice to be independently wealthy.
We're done here, right ? Yeah.
Vacuum metal deposition.
Sometimes the evidence isn't in the bag it's on it.
Comparing unknown matchbook print to garbage bag print.
- Game, set - Match.
We're closed.
Hey, did you hear me ? I said we're closed.
It wasn't my restaurant.
It wasn't my problem.
You lied to us.
Said you were living in L.
A.
at the time of the murder.
But while your parents were in court, suing to have that dumpster removed, you were running the restaurant.
In fact, you signed the vendor checks that week.
They were in a box of records your mother sent over.
You saw the business was going under.
Their marriage was in trouble.
And when the judge ruled against them, you snapped.
The evidence is circumstantial at best.
You can play it that way.
It's fine with us.
You and your father can both stand trial.
I mean, after all, he was the one who had motive.
He threatened Larson.
His prints were on the wrench.
You think the D.
A.
is going to try two people for the same crime ? Oh, yes, ma'am.
At minimum, they're looking at conspiracy.
As far as we know, they could've been in it together.
It's easier to overpower a guy when it's two against one.
Yeah, but I don't think it went down that way.
After your father was convicted, you gave up on your veterinary practice.
Moved back to Vegas spent every last dime you had on his defense.
Now, that tells me you had a guilty conscience.
It should tell you that I love my father.
Your father spent the last five years in prison, man.
If you love him so much, why don't you tell the truth.
Set him free.
My father had nothing to do with it.
Keith I never thought that they would convict an innocent man.
So I kept quiet.
To protect yourself.
We'll convene in my office at the end of your shift.
Regarding what ? - This case is over.
- Don't be late.
What's going on ? Dispatch said to meet you here.
Well, three days ago we found a John Doe who was shot to death in an abandoned parking lot off Strip.
Uh, there was a Mac-10 near the body.
Gun is registered to a Paul Turlock, who happens to be the owner of the house.
So you want to see if Paul Turlock and John Doe are one and the same.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Odds are looking pretty good so far.
Police ! Anybody here ? Sara.
Any of these look like your guy ? Guy on the end with the "Rita" tattoo.
Think Rita's his mom or his girlfriend ? If it's not crossed out, it's definitely his mom.
Mac in the box.
Five of them.
Serials obliterated.
Files and grinding stone.
It's all the tools needed to convert a semi into an auto and then cover your tracks.
Each modified weapon's a separate count.
Each filed-off serial number's a separate count.
This guy was looking at ten felonies.
Actually, he already got the death penalty.
Hey, Paulie, we liked what we saw.
Deal's a go.
Five large for five units.
I'll call youse back to arrange a time.
Paulie.
9:00 p.
m.
Monday.
- That's tonight.
- "We liked what we saw" ? That tells me that Paulie's already met with the buyers probably to show them the prototype of the Mac-10.
Maybe they met at the parking lot where we found the body.
You know, most likely they'd hook up at the same location to complete the sale.
Buyers don't know he's dead.
Lucky for us.
Hell of a job on the Larson case, Nick.
If it weren't for you, the son would've walked.
It was a team effort.
Team effort ? Just like the Westanson case, right ? Last year, that woman who burned to ashes in a barrel of diesel fuel.
Yeah.
Yeah, I'm familiar with the case, Conrad.
I reviewed Grissom's report.
It seems to me that you were a one-man CSI machine.
Grissom rejected Fay Minden's testimony, but not you.
No, Grissom allowed me to pursue a new lead, under his supervision.
Did he offer you any other CSIs as support staff ? D-Don't worry about it.
I respect your independence.
Anyway, good work.
Keep your hands up.
No sudden moves.
ATF*.
I'm an agent.
*Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Just keep your hands where I can see 'em, and you won't get hurt.
Special Agent John Calder, ATF.
- He's an undercover agent.
- I don't believe this.
You're involved in a buy bust for some firearms ? You boys burned us bad.
We were gonna make an arrest tonight.
Suspect's name is Paul Turlock ? Yeah.
Mr.
Turlock A.
D.
'd a Mac into his femoral artery.
You guys are four days too late.
Wrap it up, boys, let's go home.
If I understand you correctly, the latent fingerprint on the matchbook continued to process itself after you were finished.
Theoretically, yes.
As I know you are aware, I've asked Sofia to review your handling of the Max Larson homicide.
Did Supervisor Grissom violate any procedures in mishandling the evidence ? I don't believe he mishandled anything.
He followed laboratory protocol, and when he saw that the evidence didn't correspond to his records, he notified the D.
A.
and recused himself from case review.
Are you saying that his handling of the discovery of new evidence while on the stand is within our protocols ? As it applies to this case, yes.
In the in the process of investigating this case, your ability to supervise has come into question.
Isn't that a little beyond the scope of this inquiry ? Again, we have no evidence that Grissom violated any protocols or proc Thank you for your input.
Okay, Conrad, what do you got ? Let's hear it.
Well, taken individually, there's nothing specific that warrants disciplinary action.
However, my investigation has led me to question the effectiveness of your team and your ability to lead it.
I'm breaking you guys up.
Excuse me ? I've already spoken with the director.
Staff assignments are under my purview.
Effective immediately, Catherine Willows will be promoted to swing shift supervisor Wait a minute, Catherine applied for days.
I do what's best for the lab.
I've decided to move the swing shift supervisor to days I've been the acting supervisor of days for the past month I believe I've proven myself capable.
Warrick Brown and Nick Stokes will report to Catherine.
Greg Sanders, pending his proficiency, Sara Sidle and Sofia will report to you.
You're demoting me.
I think you and Grissom suit each other.
Why are you doing this ? There's been a chronic lack of supervision on the graveyard shift.
Your people have been covering for you, Gil.
For your shortcomings.
Before your mismanagement jeopardizes this lab, I'm rectifying the situation.
My decision is final.
He kind of talked to all of us.
It was more like he ambushed all of us.
Real sorry, Grissom.
There's no reason to be.
Look, Ecklie doesn't have a scientific bone in his body.
He starts with the answers he wants and then devises the questions to get them.
This sucks.
This guy has been kissing ass all his life, he's trying to tell me He's trying to tell us what makes a good supervisor.
What makes a good team ? Well, if a team gets used to doing things a certain way just because that's the way they've always done them, then they start to lose their effectiveness.
Oh, come on.
You don't really believe that.
No.
I believe that the longer a team works together, the stronger they become.
But I'm not in charge of the lab, nor would I want to be.
I got this That's the kind of cash I'm bringing down right now.
I always knew there'd come a time when we weren't working together anymore.
I just didn't think it'd be under these circumstances.
Brown.
Okay.
All right.
No, I'll tell Nick.
We'll see you there.
Congrats, by the way.
All right.
My new supervisor.
- Catherine ? - Yeah.
