#211 : C'est pas moi, c'est elle

L'Equipe de la Police Scientifique est appelée à resoudre le meurtre d'un très riche et renommé entrepreneur, retrouvé mort dans l'ascenseur d'un hôtel. Lorsque le corps sans vie de Bob Fairmont, un promoteur, est découvert, l'équipe découvre rapidement que le lieu du crime a été "aménagé" et la victime opérée et recousue. Après avoir mis en évidence la cause de la mort, un empoisonnement, l'équipe est choquée de découvrir que les organes vitaux de Fairmont ont été prélevés et vendus, ce qui accroit considérablement la difficulté de l'enquête.

SCENE #01:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL -- LOBBY -- NIGHT]

(A MAN and A WOMAN walk through the lobby, their arms around each other.)

MAN:  You're going to like my room.  You can see the entire strip from my
balcony ... and the bed.

(He turns her around, her back against the wall.  Her hands come up against his
chest.)

WOMAN:  (nervously)  I usually don't do this.  I-I mean, especially with
somebody that I just met.

MAN:  Yeah?  Well, I could tell that just by looking at you.

(The MAN presses the elevator door button.  The elevator bell dings.)

WOMAN:  Uh ...

MAN:  Come on, don't worry, all right?  You can trust me.  Okay?

WOMAN:  Promise?

MAN:  I never lie.

(The MAN starts to kiss the WOMAN.  He backs her up into the elevator.)

WOMAN:  You are so bad.

MAN:  Yeah, I am.

(He lifts her up and carries her into the elevator.  He presses her against the
elevator wall and starts kissing her.  After a moment, the woman looks down and
sees the dead body on the floor ... )

SCENE #02:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL -- NIGHT]

(SARA and GRISSOM arrive at the scene.  They duck under the crime scene tape and
walk toward BRASS who is already there.)

SARA:  Hey.  Dispatch said suspicious circs.

BRASS:  Yeah.  We got an anonymous call to 9-1-1 at the same time the couple
found him.  A male voice said:  "A man has collapsed at the Devon.  Hurry."

GRISSOM:  Where's the man?

(GRISSOM looks at the empty elevator.  There are two cones on the floor ... and
no body.)

BRASS:  Oh, he's unconscious, but breathing.  So paramedics took him to Desert
Palm Hospital.  There was no bullet wounds, no knife ... nothing.

SARA:  You got a name?

BRASS:  Bob Fairmont.  Upscale home developer.

SARA:  "A Fairmont Home, You'll Never Roam?"  Those billboards are everywhere.

BRASS:  Well, they took these pictures before they moved him.

(BRASS hands GRISSOM a stack of photos.  GRISSOM puts his kit down and looks
through the photos.)

GRISSOM:  Well, this is as phony as a chappaquiddick neck brace.  See how the
clothes are all bunched.

SARA:  Collar's off to the side, leg fabric's gathered.

GRISSOM:  It's impossible to redress an unconscious person to make it look like
they dressed themselves.  You notice anything about the suit coat?

(GRISSOM shows the photo to BRASS.  BRASS takes it and looks at it.)

BRASS:  Well, unless he's going to court or to church, there's no way he buttons
all three buttons.

(BRASS gives the photo back to GRISSOM.)

GRISSOM:  Very good, Jim.  (to SARA)  Why do they think they can fool us?

HARD CUT TO BLACK.

SCENE #03:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL - LOBBY -- NIGHT]

(SARA takes pictures of the elevator.  GRISSOM studies the photos.)

BRASS:  I'm going to go to the hospital to talk to Fairmont's wife.

(SARA continues to take pictures.)

GRISSOM:  Call me if you learn anything.

(BRASS leaves.  NICK walks up to them.)

NICK:  Hey, guys.  I just pulled the manager out of a restaurant.  Bob Fairmont
was staying in room 2927.  Catherine's parking the car.

GRISSOM:  Let's go up.

SARA:  We'll meet you there.

NICK:  Okay.

CUT TO:



SCENE #04:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL - HALLWAY -- NIGHT]

(GRISSOM walks toward room 2927.  In front of them is the door to the stairs. 
NICK, SARA and CATHERINE follow.  They all stop in front of the closed room
door.)

GRISSOM:  Mr. Fairmont was staying in Murder Central.

CATHERINE:  (agrees)  Mmm.

NICK:  "Murder Central"?

SARA:  You never heard that phrase?

NICK:  (exasperated)  Well, if I did, would I have asked the question?

(SARA looks smug as she got a reaction from NICK.

GRISSOM:  Sara, you're with me in here.  (to CATHERINE and NICK)  You guys get
the elevator.

CATHERINE:  All yours, girl.

SARA:  Thanks.

(GRISSOM unlocks the hotel room door.  He and SARA enter.  CATHERINE and NICK
walk back down the hallway.)

NICK:  (disgruntled)  Sara doesn't know what Murder Central means any more than
I do.

CATHERINE:  (puts a hand on NICK'S shoulder)  Oh, Nick, give it up.  We got a
death imminent to worry about.

SCENE #05:

[EXT. HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM -- NIGHT]

(BRASS questions JULIA FAIRMONT)

JULIA FAIRMONT:  My husband's in surgery.  Can't this wait?

BRASS:  I'm sorry, no.  He was found under suspicious circumstances.  Do you
have any idea who may have redressed him or moved him?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  (shakes her head)  He usually goes with women who look a lot
like me ... only younger.  And I'm embarrassed to say that I've been flattered
by that, at times.

BRASS:  Do you have a name?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I was very much on the outside of that part of his life.

BRASS:  I see.

(BRASS puts his notebook back in his jacket pocket.)

SCENE #06:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL - ROOM 2927 -- NIGHT]

(Standing side-by-side, GRISSOM and SARA look at the room in front of them. 
They're silent as they look around the room.)

SARA:  I know.  The room's talking to us.  They had champagne. 

(SARA walks into the room, GRISSOM remains by the door.)

SARA:  They were celebrating something. 

(She looks at the glasses.) 

SARA:  No lipstick on either glass.  9-1-1 did say it was a man's voice that
placed the call.

GRISSOM:  Smell the musk?  Hint of bleach? 

(GRISSOM looks up at the mirror over the bed.  He notices that the bed is
mussed.) 

GRISSOM:  Sexual intercourse.

(SARA turns around to look at GRISSOM.)

SARA:  They kept the drapes open.  A married man who's not worried about ...
photographs, long lenses ...

GRISSOM:  Well, he's either careless or arrogant, maybe.

SARA:  Or he has a death wish.  (SARA looks down and picks up a bra.)  34 C?  If
he was with a woman, who was the guy on the 911 call?

SCENE #07:

[INT.  DEVON HOTEL - ELEVATOR -- NIGHT]

(CATHERINE and NICK work on the elevator.)

CATHERINE:  Hand me that magnifier.  (NICK hands her the magnifier.)  Thank you.

NICK:  What do you got?

CATHERINE:  See those white specks? 

(Camera zooms for a close up of the white specks.  Resume to present.) 

NICK:  What do you think, cocaine?

CATHERINE:  No, I don't think so.

NICK:  How can you tell just by looking?

CATHERINE:  Never you mind. 

(CATHERINE takes a tape lift of the white specks.)

CATHERINE:  Let's just get this to trace.

CUT TO:



SCENE #08:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL - ROOM 2927]

(NICK opens the hotel room door and walks inside.  GRISSOM and SARA are just
putting on their goggles and taking out the ALS.)

NICK:  Okay, we're done in the elevator.  You guys need a hand?

GRISSOM:  Yeah, you want to dust the champagne bottle?

SARA:  The average American hotel room is covered with stains invisible to the
naked eye.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, but they're not all biological.  Some are soda stains, food
stains, whiskey stains, you know.

SARA:  No matter how clean or expensive the room seems that why always travel
with nonoxinol nine.

(They stand up.)

GRISSOM:  You sound like you're making a commercial.  Nick, hit the lights, will
you?

(NICK turns the lights off.)

GRISSOM:  Okay, we're looking for the freshest stains.

SARA:  Soda, maybe ... maybe champagne ... oh!  Someone's little soldiers ...
more champagne.

(They look up at the walls.)

GRISSOM:  Hmm ... "starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight." 

(GRISSOM takes off his goggles and heads for the door.)

GRISSOM:  Okay, I'll let you guys do the collection.

NICK:  Thanks a lot.

(GRISSOM turns around.)

GRISSOM:  Oh, and Sara? 

SARA:  Hmm.

GRISSOM:  Last hotel room nearest the stairwell -- easy entry and egress for an
intruder and if the victim fights back, fifty percent less chance of being
heard.

SARA:  Rooms only on one side.  Murder Central.

(GRISSOM nods his head and leaves the room.  The door closes behind him.)

NICK:  (smiling)  You are so busted.

(SARA turns around to look at NICK.  She smiles.)

[EXT. LAS VEGAS CITY (STOCK) - NIGHT]



SCENE #09:

[INT. CSI - DNA LAB -- NIGHT]

(Camera close up of a scope view of the "white specks" found on the elevator
floor.  The magnification view is increased.  Camera turns around and goes back
up the viewer to the eye looking through the scope.  End of scope view.)

CATHERINE:  I gave this to trace.  Why do you have

GREG:  Well, because I deal in DNA.  The smallest sliver of epidermal tissue.

CATHERINE:  This is skin.

GREG:  Scalp skin.  Itchy.  Can be embarrassing in social situations especially
if one is wearing a dark shirt.

CATHERINE:  Dandruff.

(GREG reaches out and brushes non-existent dandruff from
CATHERINE'S shoulder.)

GREG:  Good chance whoever moved the guy into the elevator ...

CATHERINE:  Had a bad case of seborrhea.

(CATHERINE deliberately leans forward and brushes the non-existent dandruff from
GREG'S shoulder.)

CATHERINE:  Thanks.

(CATHERINE turns to leave the lab.  GREG stops her.)

GREG:  Hey, Catherine?  Do you think Sara would ever go out with me?

CATHERINE:  (thinks about it)  Sure.  (deadpans)  As long as you don't tell her
it's a date.

(CATHERINE leaves the lab.)

CUT TO:



SCENE #10:

[INT. CSI - HALLWAY - NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(CATHERINE exits the DNA lab and walks down the hallway.  WARRICK catches up
with her.)

WARRICK:  Hey, Cath... are you on this Fairmont case?

CATHERINE:  House mogul caught with his pants on?  Yeah, I'm just rolling to the
hospital to get his clothes. Why?

WARRICK:  You know the Fairmont house was one of my first calls three years ago?

CATHERINE:  You serious?  For what?

WARRICK:  Shots fired.  He shot himself while he was cleaning his gun.

CATHERINE:  Wow!

WARRICK:  Yeah. And after hearing about tonight I'm wondering if that's what
really happened.  I'm going to pull his file and check it out.

CATHERINE:  Let me know.

WARRICK:  I will.

SCENE #11:

[INT. DEVON HOTEL - ROOM 2927]

(NICK picks up the used condom from the fixture on the wall.)

NICK:  Nice shot.  (looks inside)  Reservoir's still wet.

(NICK bags it.)

SARA:  Why did he throw it?

NICK:  Mmm. I'm only impressed if he aimed.

SARA:  I wonder if the woman has any idea she left her DNA behind?

NICK:  Not rocket science.  Man's inside, woman's out.

CUT TO:



SCENE #12:

[INT. CSI -- HALLWAY]

(BRASS fills GRISSOM in about the 911 tape.)

BRASS:  Wife says the guy's a player.  She doesn't know the women.

GRISSOM:  You tell her about the 911 tape?

BRASS:  The male voice?  Oh, I just got back from central dispatch.  The tape's
lost.  New computer system.

GRISSOM:  Any ear-witnesses?

BRASS:  The dispatcher says it could've been a woman whispering.  Or a very old
person, gender indeterminate.

GRISSOM:  That's about as good as an eyewitness.

(GRISSOM'S phone rings.  He answers it.)

GRISSOM:  Grissom.  (pause)  What?  (pause)  I'll be right there. 

(He hangs up and looks at BRASS.)

GRISSOM:  No lunch.

(GRISSOM turns around and heads back down the hallway.)

SCENE #13

[INT. CSI - FORENSIC AUTOPSY]

(ROBBINS goes over the findings with GRISSOM.)

GRISSOM:  We got a time?

ROBBINS:  Well, all indications are he was brain-dead from the time he collapsed
at the hotel

GRISSOM:  From?

(Quick CGI POV to:  A camera close up of the deceased's forehead.  White flash
to a view of the brain where blood starts to leak out.)

ROBBINS:  (v.o.)  An artery out-pouches blood floods the subarachnoid space.

(End of CGI POV.  Resume to present.) 

ROBBINS:   Heart still beats, but the brain's dead.  And it doesn't regenerate.

GRISSOM:  Aneurysm from trauma ...
infection...?

ROBBINS:  Genetic predisposition.  Both parents went that way.  It increases a
person's chance of stroke ten-fold.  He looks like an athlete.

GRISSOM:  Brain dead at 38, otherwise healthy and strong.  Is this a
Frankenstein?

ROBBINS:  I was wondering when you'd ask.  Prime donor candidate.  Next of kin
signed off.

GRISSOM:  How many organs they take?

ROBBINS:  Eight in under two hours.

GRISSOM:  Man, those harvest doctors move, don't they?

(Quick flashback to:  The heart monitor beeps.  The doctor puts the first organ
in the pan.)

DOCTOR:  Kidneys, stat!
DOCTOR:  Go, go, go!

(Various flashes of the organs being removed and of various machinery monitoring
the donor.)

DOCTOR:  Here comes the liver.  Ready with a basin, please.
NURSE:  For ...
DOCTOR:  Right now.
DOCTOR:  And here we go!

(The second organ goes into the pan marked:  "Liver".)

DOCTOR:  Clamp it.
DOCTOR:  Get it back, get it back.
DOCTOR:  Ready and got it.
DOCTOR:  Here we go.

(The final organ is placed in the pan.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

GRISSOM:  (nods)  All right, I'll notify the PD about the organs.

(GRISSOM leaves the room.)

CUT TO:



SCENE #14:

[INT. CSI - DNA LAB]

(GREG takes a swab from the condom.  SARA reads through some papers as she
waits.)

GREG:  So I was thinking.  Maybe we could take our break at the same time. 
(beat)  Later this shift.  (beat)  Together.

SARA:  Sure.

GREG:  (surprised)  Really.

(GREG tests the swab.  SARA leans in to look.)

SARA:  Semen.  No surprise there.

GREG:  Well, without the DNA sample from the hotel guy this test is pretty
useless.

(SARA goes back to looking at the photos.)

SARA:  I'm more interested ... in who the woman is.

GREG:  Well, just like the bra, I'm going to need a reference of her DNA in
order to do anything, and that's not going to happen until ...

(SARA rifles through the autopsy photos.  She sees something.)

SARA:  What the heck?

GREG:  What?

SARA:  (looking up)  Stripes.

(Without further explanation, SARA walks out of the lab.)

GREG:  Stripes.

CUT TO:



SCENE #15:

[INT. CSI - HALLWAY]

(SARA and GRISSOM walk through the hallway.  SARA shows GRISSOM the photos.)

SARA:  Transverse white bands that appear six weeks after the onset of symptoms
of toxicity.

GRISSOM:  You got a closer view?

(SARA hands GRISSOM the photo she was looking at.  Camera zooms in to the
fingernails to show the white stripes.)

GRISSOM:  Uh ...

SARA:  They look like mees lines to me.

GRISSOM:  Could be livor mortis.

SARA:  Or white striae, indicative of heavy metal poisoning.

GRISSOM:  We can't count on a photo to draw that kind of conclusion.  We need
the body.

CUT TO:



SCENE #16:

[INT. CSI - FORENSIC AUTOPSY]

(SARA, GRISSOM and ROBBINS look at the empty table.)

SARA:  Don't take this wrong, Dr. Robbins, but ... how do you release a body
that's been redressed and dumped in an elevator?

(ROBBINS pushes the table back into the cabinet.)

ROBBINS:  I deal with cause of death, which was an aneurysm and therefore, a
natural, and based on that his body is released to a mortuary.

(ROBBINS sits down at the computer monitor.)

SARA:  The whole transplant thing didn't raise a flag?

GRISSOM:  I thought I'd raised a flag with the good doctor when I told him I was
going to notify the police department but evidently, I mis-communicated again.

SARA:  Great.

(ROBBINS enters the search in the computer database.)

(The results are as follows:
[Name:           FAIRMONT, ROBERT    
Cause of Death:  Natural     Date:    12/13/01
Time of Death:   4:00 a.m.   Case #:  29574
Destination:     Desert Haven Mortuary     ]

ROBBINS:  All may not be lost. Here...  body of Robert Fairmont released at 0400
hours to the Desert Haven Mortuary.

SARA:  I know that place.

GRISSOM:  Well, if they haven't embalmed him we can still get a blood sample
test for heavy metal poisoning.

SARA:  Good. I'll drive. 

(SARA heads for the door.  She turns around when she realizes that GRISSOM isn't
moving.) 

SARA:  You're not coming?

GRISSOM:  (looks up)  You found it, you run with it. 

(SARA seems surprised.) 

GRISSOM:  You can do it. Take Nick.

SARA:  Okay.

(SARA leaves.)

SCENE #17:

[INT. DESERT HAVEN MORTUARY]

(FURNACE POV:  SARA looks in through the window.  Her face shows her shock and
surprise.)

SARA:  How long's he been in here?

RANDY GESEK:  92 minutes at 1,600 degrees.  At, exactly, was it that you wanted
to see?

(SARA turns around to look at RANDY GESEK.)

NICK:  His fingernails.

RANDY GESEK:  I'm very sorry.

NICK:  Who approved this cremation?

(RANDY looks at his clipboard and sighs.)

RANDY GESEK:  His wife, Julia Fairmont.

SARA:  Same person who approved the organ transplants.

(RANDY nods.  SARA turns to look at the furnace.)

(SARA picks up a piece of ash and places it in a mortar.  She grounds it with a
pestle.)

CUT TO:



SCENE #19:

[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT - WAITING ROOM]

(BRASS and SARA  JULIA FAIRMONT.)

BRASS:  You told me your husband was in surgery.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  He was.

BRASS:  Surgery to take his organs not to save his life.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  He was technically ... dead.  He wanted to donate his organs. 
I was following his wishes.  Why are you being so hostile?

BRASS:  Someone was poisoning your husband.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  What?

SARA:  We don't know the dose or the duration but we do know the type of poison. 
We processed your husband's remains. 

(Quick series of flashes to match SARA'S narration.  SARA in the lab taking the
piece of ash.  SARA testing a sample of the ash in the analyzer.  SARA pressing
the button to start the machine.)

(Machine test results read as follows for "Alignment Mode Lamp 1":

SARA:  (v.o.)   Most poisons would be completely burned off by cremation but
heavy metals are very resistant to heat.   This heavy metal -- selenium.

(White flash to the fire in the furnace.  Printer prints results.  End of
flashback.  Resume to present.)

SARA:  Did you notice that your husband's breath might have been garlicky?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Garlicky?

SARA:  The body will excrete demethyl selenide -- smells just like garlic.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Uh... no.

SARA:  The white stripes on his fingernails--did you notice those?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Um ... we didn't see each other a lot.  Bob was busy building
his company.

SARA:  That bother you, him never being home?

(JULIA FAIRMONT looks at BRASS.)

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I think it would bother any woman.

SARA:  Did you know that the most common choice of premeditated murder among
women is poison?  They cite its passivity.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I did not poison my husband.

SARA:  You cremated his body.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  He wanted to be cremated.  I cremated him.  He wanted to donate
his organs.  I did that, too.  Now, if there's nothing else, I will be at home
preparing for my husband's memorial service.  Excuse me.

(Angry, JULIA FAIRMONT grabs her jacket and stands up to leave.  SARA stops
her.)

SARA:  Do you want us to notify you?

(SARA and JULIA turn around to look at each other.)

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Of what?

(SARA stands up and walks toward JULIA FAIRMONT.)

SARA:  When we find out the exact amount of selenium given to your husband and
over what period of time?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I thought you couldn't tell.

SARA:  Your husband's gone, but his organs are still out there.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  (nods)  Well, good.  Yes, I would like to be notified.

(SARA turns to look at BRASS.)

SCENE #20:

[INT. HOSPITAL]

(NICK stands behind the physician as they explain the situation to the PATIENT,
CARL MERCER, in the bed.)

CARL MERCER:  Straight up, am I going to die?

PHYSICIAN:  You have only a small fraction of the poison that was in your
donor's body--one organ.
With nothing new coming in it should work its way out.

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:  (smiles)  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. 

(The doctor leaves.  NICK steps up toward the bed.) 

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.  (He shakes his
head.)  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 glances down at the watch on the railing.)

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?

(NICK chuckles.) 

NICK:  Yeah, get it to a watch repair shop.  (pause)  I hope you get to feeling
better, Mr. Mercer.

(NICK leaves the room.)

SCENE #21:

[INT. CSI -- HALLWAY]

(SARA updates GRISSOM.)

SARA:  Nick struck out on the kidney.  I got four "no's" over the phone.  One
yes from a recipient in Illinois-- heart.

GRISSOM:  Useless-- heart has no memory for poison.

SARA:  Why can't we cut the middle man and just check the wife's house for
selenium?  (GRISSOM looks at SARA.)  All right, I know, something about
constitutional law.  Get probable cause, then get a search warrant ...

(GREG walks on into the hallway, directly in front of SARA and GRISSOM.)

GREG:  Sara! I was just looking for you.  Still up for break?

SARA:  Sorry, Greggo-- hot case.  I'm going to go look at Nick's champagne
bottle.  How you doing with our DNA?

GREG:  Uh ... inside-outside we're still looking for a reference for comparison
but the epidermals are looking promising.

SARA:  Nice.

(SARA leaves.)

GRISSOM:  You want to clue me in?

GREG:  Sara and I were just going out for dinner.

GRISSOM:  On the case, "Greggo".

GREG:  Oh. Right.

SCENE #22:

[INT. HOSPITAL]

(CLAUDIA GIDEON walks in and heads for the Nurse's station.  CATHERINE is
standing next to the station, waiting.)

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Excuse me ... I'm Claudia Gideon, Bob Fairmont's secretary.  I
came to pick up his property.

NURSE:  Oh, I'm sorry, but Ms. Willows already asked for them.

CATHERINE:  His property is part of our investigation.
I'm afraid I have to take it.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Oh, fine. I was just doing my job.

CATHERINE:  Yeah, me, too.  Did you work for the Fairmonts three years ago, when
Mr. Fairmont was shot?

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I was out sick that day.

CATHERINE:  Interesting. 

(CATHERINE sees something on CLAUDIA'S sweater.) 

CATHERINE:  You have dandruff.

(CATHERINE turns to get tape from her kit.)

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Is that really proper etiquette?

CATHERINE:  It is when I'm on a case.  Do you mind?

(CATHERINE takes a tape lift.)

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Where did you say you worked?

SCENE #23:

[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT - INTERVIEW ROOM]

(BRASS questions CLAUDIA GIDEON.)

BRASS:  I'm going to ask you again -- were you in that hotel room with Bob
Fairmont?

(CATHERINE enters the room and closes the door.)

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I was not, no.

CATHERINE:  But you did redress him and place him in the elevator.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  You don't know what you're talking about.

CATHERINE:  Well, that's dangerous to say to a scientist. 

(CATHERINE puts her file on the table.) 

CATHERINE:  Dandruff is nothing more than sloughed-off skin.  It has a nucleus
just like a cell on your arm or your big toe. 

(CATHERINE puts the test results and photo in front of CLAUDIA GIDEON.) 

CATHERINE:  These 13 DNA markers from this dandruff cell are a match to the
dandruff that I recovered from your sweater.  You were there.  At that hotel.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Okay, Mr. Fairmont told me earlier that day to meet him in his

bed -- naked,

(Quick flashback to:  CLAUDIA GIDEON finds BOB FAIRMONT in bed naked.  She looks
shocked.) 

CLAUDIA GIDEON: (v.o.)  ... unconscious.

(CLAUDIA moves and picks up his clothes.)

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  (v.o.)  He always told me reputation before health -- no
scandals.  I dragged him to the elevator.

(CLAUDIA drags BOB FAIRMONT into the elevator.  She leaves him there.  The
elevator doors close.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

CATHERINE:  Let me guess -- you snuck out down the stairwell.

(She nods.)

BRASS:  Who was Fairmont partying with in that room?

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I don't know.

CATHERINE:  Well, we won't mind if we compare your DNA to the vaginal
contribution of a condom that we recovered from Mr. Fairmont's room?

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  (nods)  Sure, go ahead.

CATHERINE:  Good.  We'd like to show you something else -- about that accidental
shooting three years ago at your boss' house.

SCENE #24:

[INT. CSI - OFFICE]

(On the monitor is a computer reinactment of the first shooting years ago.  The
green figure is sitting down at a table when the gun falls down and shoots the
victim in the groin.)

WARRICK:  In this reinactment, Fairmont shot himself while cleaning his gun?  In
this reenactment the story just doesn't add up.  I think I fell for it because I
was new and I wasn't too eager to talk to another guy about him almost shooting
off his manhood. 

(BRASS sighs.  WARRICK straightens the monitor.)

WARRICK:  This is the room as it was then based off of my crime scene photos. 
This is crime scene reconstruction, new school.  Works backward, reverse time. 

(On the monitor it shows a different scenario with the green figure standing in
the foyer.)

WARRICK:  The bullet hit here.

(The screen backs up showing a red figure (the shooter) sitting in a chair and
shooting the green figure (the victim) in the groin.)

WARRICK:  The only logical place for that bullet to have been shot from is four
meters away, one meter high.  He didn't actually shoot himself.  Someone shot
him.

CATHERINE:  We're thinking it was you.

BRASS:  Admission form from the ER, 9/6/98.  The person who brought Fairmont in
on the accidental shooting... was you.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I didn't shoot him.

BRASS:  You didn't poison him, either.  All these bad things just happen to you.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I'm on call 24 hours a day, okay?  Mr. Fairmont beeped me.  I
drove out to the house, and I took him in.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Yes, I shot him.  He was supposed to go riding with me and he
didn't show up till two in the morning.  No calls, nothing.  I was ... hurt.

CATHERINE:  So, you just sat there in the dark and aimed south of his belt.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I just wanted to scare him.

(Quick flashback to:  BOB FAIRMONT returns home and finds his wife angry and
holding a gun on him.)

BOB FAIRMONT:  It was a business meeting.
BOB FAIRMONT:  I swear.
BOB FAIRMONT:  I-it wasn't like before.
BOB FAIRMONT:  I was thinking about you the whole time.

(She shoots.  He grunts from the impact.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

BRASS:  So, why didn't you tell the truth then?

MRS. FAIRMONT:  I wanted to, but Bob wouldn't let me.  He said that it would
ruin his career -- Fairmont Family Estates.

WARRICK:  I'm presenting this case to the D.A., even if it is three years old.

CLAUDIA:  My husband's dead.  We had our problems but I loved him I don't ... I
don't much care what you do now.

BRASS:  Well, there's only two reasons a woman shoots a man.  She either loves
him or hates him.

CATHERINE:  Or both.

GRISSOM:  Secretary moved the body.

CATHERINE:  We just interviewed her.  She copped to moving him.  We're looking
hard at the wife on the poisoning.

GRISSOM:  The secretary has dandruff.

CATHERINE:  We know.  Dermatomycoses seborrhea -- we got it.

CATHERINE:  She could be back from dinner at any moment.  This shouldn't take
long.

BRASS:  Could you tell us why you keep your shampoo in your office?

CATHERINE:  Shampoo full of the same poison found in Bob Fairmont's remains?

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I don't know.

BRASS:  Aw, you have to do better than that.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Maybe I pied it up at the pharmacy on lunch and put it there. 
I don't know.

(CATHERINE opens the refrigerator and looks inside.  She finds a small tub of
garlic cream cheese.)

CATHERINE:  Cream cheese.

CATHERINE:   Garlic cream cheese ...

BRASS:  Hides the bitter aftertaste.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  I haven't done anything.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Other than poison Bob.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Poison?  I'm the one who looked out for him.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  You?  I ran his home.  I entertained his clients.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Who made all of his dental appointments, huh?  His haircuts?
Who got his taxes in on time?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  You covered for his mistresses ...

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Why did he need mistresses?

BRASS:  Ladies ... don't go there.

CARL MERCER:  Did you find out who poisoned Mr. Fairmont?

NICK:  No.  No, sir.  ,I have found selenium in his office but... without
actually knowing how much was in his system ...

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.

GRISSOM:  You asked for it.

NICK:  Yeah, that's my point.  Carl Mercer risks dying sooner to help our
investigation but who protects his rights?

GRISSOM:  He has free will.

NICK:  Well, so do I.  I want to retract our request.  I don't think any
investigation for the dead is worth hurting the living.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  He squeezed me in between business meetings at the hotel.

BRASS:  And you didn't think to tell me that when we first talked?

(In the observation room, GRISSOM, SARA and NICK listen in on the questioning.)

JULIA FAIRMONT:  No, because you asked me about him being redressed in an
elevator ... and, besides, when I left him, he was ... alive watching the news.

(Quick flashback to:  JULIA kisses BOB FAIRMONT and leaves.  The news can be
heard on the television.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

BRASS:  Oh, so, he had a stroke alone, after you left.

back on the bed.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I'm not a doctor.  I don't know when he had it.

BRASS:  Well, CSI is testing that champagne bottle for selenium.

JULIA FAIRMONT:  I didn't think poison caused strokes.

BRASS:  You seem to know a lot about poison for not being a doctor.

SARA:  Fairmont had three gold crowns.  They should've survived the cremation.

GRISSOM:  At least partially.  Heavy metal, after all.

SARA:  His wife ... had them removed at the mortuary.  That adds new meaning to
the phrase "gold digger."

GRISSOM:  Actually, that's how the phrase got started.  People used to dig up
the bodies to extract the gold.

SARA: Now they just marry them.  In some countries, this would be enough to have
her arrested for murdering her husband.

GRISSOM:  What's the most important component in a poisoning.

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  (scoffs)  Why would she hide my shampoo in my office?

BRASS:  What, you know she did that?

CLAUDIA GIDEON:  Well, it wasn't her husband.  He was already dead.  She's

JULIA FAIRMONT:  It can look however it wants.  I have nothing to hide.

BRASS:  You mean since you yourself have been poisoned?

JULIA FAIRMONT:  Yeah, why aren't you asking Claudia Richards about that?  First
my husband, then me?

SARA:  That's murder.

NICK:  Yeah, well, it would have been murder for a 300-pound man.

in selenium supplements injected in animals.

SARA:  Animals?  Like cats, dogs?

NICK:  Mostly livestock, grazers.

SARA:  To make up for the lack of selenium nutrient in the soil.  How did
Claudia get access to this stuff?

CATHERINE:  (o.s.)  A dairy farm.

knew more about livestock than I did.  She rode horses.

GRISSOM:  (gently)  One of life's riddles ... (GRISSOM turns around to head back to the building.  He turns back to SARA.)  ... But, hey ... the good news ? There's no statute of limitation on murder. 

(GRISSOM makes his way back to the building.  SARA turns and walks away.)

FADE TO BLACK.
