MATTHEW PHELPS:  Get it off.  I'm not going to say it again.

TRAVIS PHELPS:  Dad, just five more minutes and I'll be on level nine.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Now!

(AIMEE PHELPS walks out into the living room in her pajamas.)

AIMEE PHELPS:  Dad!  You said I can watch nickelodeon.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  You've watched enough tv for tonight.  It's time to go to bed.

AIMEE PHELPS:  How come he doesn't have to?

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Both of you, bed now!

(AIMEE PHELPS turns around and stomps off to her room.  MATTHEW PHELPS walks up to the television set and turns it off.)

TRAVIS PHELPS:  Dad!  You got to save it first!

MATTHEW PHELPS:  This game saves it automatically.

(TRAVIS PHELPS stands up to go to bed.  He passes by the table and grabs the can of soda.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Oh, no, no, you know how much sugar's in that thing?

(As MATTHEW PHELPS stands to take the can of soda, gunshots burst in through the living room window.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Get down!

(MATTHEW PHELPS dives for his son and covers him.  The gunfire continues.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  (shouts)  Son, are you all right?

(His son, scared out of his wits, doesn't answer.  MATTHEW PHELPS looks up.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Aimee?

(MATTHEW climbs to his feet and runs to his daughter's room.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Aimee!  Aimee!  Aim ..

(He turns the corner and sees her room in shambles.  The bullets tore through everything.  And on the bed is his little girl, dead.)

SCENE #03:

[EXT. PHELPS RESIDENCE -- NIGHT]

(The lights of the Emergency vehicles parked in the driveway flash in the night.  A large crowd of neighbors and curious on-lookers has gathered outside the taped off area.)

(WARRICK and GRISSOM make their way toward BRASS.)

WARRICK:  Hey.

GRISSOM:  Didn't you grow up in this neighborhood?

WARRICK:  Yeah, not too far away.  My grandmother still lives down the block. Lot of familiar faces.

MAN:  Hey, Brown, you going to find the guy who did this?

WARRICK:  We're going to do our jobs.

BRASS:  Jason Gilbert.  Shot through and through.  He going to be all right, though.

WARRICK:  What was he doing here?

BRASS:  Visiting his girlfriend next door. He hit the deck when the shooting started.  Didn't see a car.

GRISSOM:  Drive-by.  His girlfriend see anything?

(WARRICK walks into the room.)

WARRICK:  What happened, man?

MATTHEW PHELPS:  They killed my baby.

(He puts his head down and starts to cry.  WARRICK puts a supportive hand on the man's shoulder.)

WARRICK:  (softly)  I'm sorry, man.  I'm sorry.

(GRISSOM walks into the house and as he does with any other crime scene, he starts looking around.)

WARRICK:  I got here as quick as I could.  What happened?

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Cops said they were aiming at some white kid.  I thought I was making a difference.

(MATTHEW PHELPS closes his eyes and starts to cry again.)

WARRICK:  You are making a difference.  I'm living proof.  I'm sorry.

(GRISSOM walks further into the house and notes the bullet hole in the bookshelf.)

(Quick CGI POV to:  Camera zooms forward taking the path of the bullet, through the cabinet, through the wall, through the pillow, and finally lodging in the little girl.  End of CGI POV.)

(WARRICK sighs.)

GRISSOM:  You going to be able to handle this?

SCENE #06:

[INT. PHELPS' RESIDENCE -- NIGHT]

(WARRICK examines the empty display shelf.)

WARRICK:  Matt told me his house was broken into about a week ago.  They took all of his awards, his medals.  Everything in this case.  I hope whoever took it, it meant as much to them as it did to him.

(GRISSOM examines the bullet holes in the wall.  He sighs.)

GRISSOM:  Well, we're obviously looking for an automatic.

WARRICK:  No doubt.  All this damage.

GRISSOM:  The bullets went through the glass, shed their jackets or disintegrated completely on impact with the wall.

(Quick CGI POV of the bullet hitting the wall and disintegrating.  End of CGI POV.  Resume to present.)

GRISSOM:  All we have left are lead cores, which are of no comparison value.

(GRISSOM and WARRICK look up as the Coroners remove the body.)

GRISSOM:  The only bullet that may help us is inside that little girl.

SCENE #07:

[EXT. HYPERTRIX -- NIGHT]

(NICK and DET. SAM VEGA walk up toward the business' front door.)

NICK:  Hypertrix?  Sounds like a breakfast cereal.

VEGA:  Some internet service thing.  I stopped thinking about that stuff when I found out my NASDAQ fund was worth less than my son's comic book collection.

NICK:  Dot com ... dot bomb.

VEGA:  The office floor where the DB's located is restricted-- authorized employees only.

NICK:  I'll need the access log.

VEGA:  I already spoke to building security.

(VEGA hands NICK a sheet of paper.)

NICK:  Cool.

SCENE #09:

[INT. HYPERTRIX - COMPUTER ROOM - NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(The door opens and NICK and DET. VEGA walk in.  Immediately, NICK feels the
temperature change.)

NICK:  Ooh.  Hey, David.

(DAVID PHILLIPS is already inside the room kneeling before the body taking the
body temperature.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Nick.  Cool enough in here for you?

NICK:  I'll manage.  Most computers dissipate over two thirds of the energy they
consume as heat.  A/C's here for them, not the worker bees.

VEGA:  Victim's name's Garret Kwan.  Job title, CTO.

NICK:  Chief Technology Officer.  T.O.D.?

(DAVID PHILLIPS looks at the digital temperature gauge.  It reads 86.3 degrees
F.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Ambient here's about 65 degrees, which makes core temp drop
roughly two degrees per hour.  Figure he's been dead five to seven hours.

NICK:  Apparent blunt force trauma.  Minimal seepage around the wound.  No blood
on the floor.  The paramedics roll him?

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Uh, yeah.  Said they found him face down, head towards the
rack.

NICK:  (to VEGA)  Any sign of a weapon?

VEGA:  Nothing obvious.  No windows.  Only one way in or out.

NICK:  Yeah, but there's plenty of places to hide.

(Quick flashback to:  Someone hitting GARRETT KWAN over the back of the head
from behind.  He takes the hit and goes down.  End of flashback.  Resume to
present.)

NICK:  Okay.  One dead boss.  Three live employees.  I like the odds.

SCENE #10:

[EXT. PHELPS' RESIDENCE -- NIGHT]

(Evidence markers #2 & #3 are put down on the ground next to blood spatter out
on the sidewalk.)

BRASS:  So, Jason Gilbert, the kid who was shot, not too popular in the
neighborhood.  Just in a fight last week, down the street.

WARRICK:  Yeah?

BRASS:  Uh-huh.

WARRICK:  You saw his girl.  She was hot.  They're probably macking on her.  
(pause)  Matt said he heard tires screech.

BRASS:  Mm-hmm.

WARRICK:  And the bullets went from right to left.

BRASS:  Uh-huh.  (BRASS figures it out and points somewhere to WARRICK'S left.)  
Over there?

(WARRICK turns his head and they both head in that direction.  They find a
mailbox overturned.)

BRASS:  You know, it's a federal offense to be messing with the postal service.

WARRICK:  Took that corner pretty hard, huh?

BRASS:  Yeah.

(WARRICK takes a picture of the overturned mailbox.  He picks the mailbox up and
turns it right-side up.)

BRASS:  Doesn't that dent look a little high to you?  Like a truck or an SUV?

(WARRICK takes a picture of the dent.)

(Quick flashback to:  An SUV rounds the corner, tires screeching and hits the
mailbox, making the dent and knocking it over.  End of flashback.  Resume to
present.)

WARRICK:  Yeah.

BRASS:  I'm not just another pretty face, you know.

WARRICK:  There's a silver paint transfer, though, right here.

(WARRICK points to the portion of the dent where the mailbox made contact with
the vehicle.)

OFFICER:  Captain.

BRASS:  Yeah?

(They both turn around.)

OFFICER:  Just got a call.  PJ's tavern, a few block away.  Guy was brandishing
an automatic weapon.  They're holding him at the site.

CUT TO:



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



SCENE #11:

[EXT. P.J.'S TAVERN -- NIGHT]

(The Owner of the Tavern talks to the OFFICER.  WARRICK and BRASS approach
them.)

OWNER:  This guy's a punk.

BRASS:  Hey, tell me what you're telling him.

OWNER:  (pointing)  This guy's no good.  He's been in here before, and every
time it's trouble, so this time, I exercised my right not to serve him.  You
know what the little freak does?  Lifts up his jacket, and shows me a piece.  I
tell him to take a hike.

(WARRICK looks over at GENE JAYCOBS who has suddenly taken an interest in
WARRICK.  His eyes never leave WARRICK.)

BRASS:  Yeah?

(WARRICK notes with interest the semi-automatic weapon that the OFFICER
confiscated from GENE JAYCOBS.)

OWNER:  Then he proceeds to tell me how I better watch my back, 'cause it
wouldn't be the first time tonight he killed somebody.

BRASS:  No kidding. All right.

WARRICK:  Jay ... Jacobs?

OWNER:  No, it's Gene Jaycobs.

WARRICK:  Gene Jaycobs.  I knew that kid.  I went to school with him.  He got
kicked out.

BRASS:  Okay, let's see what the lad has to say for himself.  Thanks a lot.

(WARRICK puts on his latex gloves as he and BRASS head for GENE JAYCOBS.)

BRASS:  Hey, Gene!  What's happening!  Uncuff him.

GENE JAYCOBS:  (to WARRICK)  Do I know you?

WARRICK:  (doesn't answer the question)  Put your hands out in front of you.

GENE JAYCOBS:  (nods)  Oh, it's like that, huh?

(WARRICK takes a sample off of GENE JAYCOBS' hands.)

WARRICK:  I can process this now.  It would tell me if you fired a gun within
the last couple of hours.  But I'm going to take this back to the lab, make you
sweat it out.

BRASS:  Okay, officer, I think someone needs their cuffs put back on.

(The officers put the handcuffs back on GENE JAYCOBS.  WARRICK walks away.)

SCENE #12:

[INT. HYPERTRIX - WHITE OFFICE -- NIGHT]

(TODD BENTON sits down in his chair.)

TODD BENTON:  I know what that is.  You're checking me for blood spatter.  I
watch the discovery channel.  (beat)  I found the body, I called the police.  
Not too smart, if I'm the one who killed the guy.

(TODD BENTON is talking to the wall.  Or rather, he's practicing to himself.  He
pauses and evaluates what he says.)

TODD BENTON:  (quietly):  That's good.

(He stands up a little ... just enough to look over the wall.  He sees NICK and
DET. VEGA standing on the far end of the room.  He sits back down.)

TODD BENTON:  (muttering)  Not too ... not too smart, if I'm the one who ...

(NICK and DET. VEGA approach TODD BENTON'S desk.)

NICK:  Mr. Benton, could you stand up for me, please?

(TODD BENTON stands.  NICK takes out his ALS and checks for blood.  Just as he
rehearsed, TODD BENTON runs through his lines.)

TODD BENTON:  I know what that ... is.  I know what that is.  You're checking me
for blood spatter.  I watch the discovery channel.  Look, I ... I found the
body, I called the police.  Not too smart, if I'm the one who killed the guy.

VEGA:  Thanks for pointing that out.  When was the last time you saw Garret
Kwan?

TODD BENTON:  I didn't; not tonight.  I was working.  Working halfway to carpal
tunnel syndrome.  So-called ergonomic chairs.  Should be a crime, if you ask me.  
The chairs are ... okay, you know, it's, it's not like my office has a good view
of the door.  You should be talking to Charlie.  Charlie has the good view.

NICK:  Charlie?

(TODD BENTON points to the desk behind NICK.  NICK turns around and sees the
empty desk.  He looks back at TODD BENTON.)

TODD BENTON:  Yeah, okay, yeah, um, Charlie ... Charlie doesn't work here
anymore, so that doesn't really help you.

NICK:  Could you hold your hands out for me, please?

[INT. HYPERTRIX - WHITE OFFICES -- NIGHT]

(NICK is checking out ANDERS MOLYNEAUX.  He checks a swab.)

NICK:  Pretty easy to see the door to the server farm from here.

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  That is a fact.  And here's another.  I didn't see anything.  
I was coding.  Link.  Compile.  Debug.  All night.  The work absorbs me.

VEGA:  What kind of work?

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  My code monitors internet traffic and server load.

NICK:  So you make your computer watch other computers that other people are
watching?

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  Just because you can't see the beauty in data flow doesn't
mean it doesn't exist.

VEGA:  What was your relationship to Garret Kwan?

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  I'm employee number seven.  Kwan was employee number six.  
Big brain by reputation, my boss by random chance.

(NICK looks at VEGA.  VEGA nods.)

SHORT TIME CUT TO:



SCENE #14:

[INT. HYPERTRIX - WHITE OFFICES -- NIGHT]

(NICK and VEGA question SERENA CHASE.)

SERENA CHASE:  You know, they, um, they confiscated all my murder weapons when I
left Microsoft, so I don't know if you'll find anything.

NICK:  Yeah, you don't exactly fit the corporate image.

SERENA CHASE:  Well, it's my image, the company doesn't get a say in it.

VEGA:  Looks like you get special treatment around here.

SERENA CHASE:  Yeah, well, I earn it.  I optimize 'net infrastructure.  I saved
this company $8.3 mill last year.  Got a five-figure bonus.  And, uh, yes, I did
see Garret go into the server farm around 6:00, 6:30.

NICK:  So your boss is laying there dead for five and a half hours plus, and you
never even notice he's gone.

SERENA CHASE:  Oh ... well, I mean, nobody else did, either.  Look, I was, you
know ...

NICK:  Working.

SERENA CHASE:  That is what we do here.

NICK:  (smiles)  Right.

(ROBBINS goes over AIMEE PHELPS with GRISSOM.  )

ROBBINS:  Bullet entered through the throat, severing the spinal column.  C2's
adjacent to the brain stem.  Sever that, respiration shuts down, resulting in
almost immediate death.

(ROBBINS picks up the bullet.  Camera zooms in on the bullet.)

ROBBINS:  Wood splinters embedded in the jacket.

GRISSOM:  Well, it went through a bookcase.  Nine millimeter.

there's a muffled gunfire.  Water splashes in a tank.)

(GRISSOM rounds the corner and enters the Ballistics Lab where WARRICK and BOBBY
DAWSON are testing the gun.)

(BOBBY DAWSON opens the tank and retrieves the bullet.  He closes the tank and
heads for the scope.  He looks up and sees GRISSOM.  WARRICK takes off his
goggles and walks toward the group.)

(GRISSOM puts the bullet in a container of detergent.

(BOBBY DAWSON takes the bullet out of the container and looks at both of them
under the scope.  He lines up the bullets and its a match.)

BOBBY DAWSON:  All right.  Bingo.  Your bullet came from that gun.

GRISSOM:  You're sure.

BOBBY DAWSON:  Yeah, I'm sure.

WARRICK:  We got him.

(BRASS questions GENE JAYCOBS.)

BRASS:  So, Jason Gilbert --  what did he ever do to you?

GENE JAYCOBS:  Drawing a blank.

BRASS:  The kid you shot!

GENE JAYCOBS:  I didn't shoot nobody, man.

BRASS:  Jason's girlfriend told us that you were practically stalking her.  She
must have turned you down a hundred times.  You didn't like that, did you?

GENE JAYCOBS:  Is that what she told you?

BRASS:  Yeah.

GENE JAYCOBS:  Lying bitch!  I found that gun!

(Quick flashback to:  GENE JAYCOBS picking up the gun from the ground.)

GENE JAYCOBS:  Damn!

GENE JAYCOBS:  (v.o.)  Gun was jammed, I cleared it.

(End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

BRASS:  You cleared it, all right-- into Mr. Phelps's home, killing his
daughter!

GENE JAYCOBS:  (stands up)  No, it was the last bullet.

BRASS:  What are you talking about?  You threatened a bartender with an empty
gun?

GENE JAYCOBS:  He didn't know that.  I can show you where I found it:  Alleyway
behind Washington Avenue ...

[OBSERVATION ROOM -- CONTINUOUS]

GENE JAYCOBS:  (over speaker)  ... Next to a big yellow dumpster.

WARRICK:  Oh, come on.  That's it?  That's his genius story?

GRISSOM:  We only found a small amount of GSR on his hands.  Could have been
transfer from just picking up the murder weapon.

WARRICK:  He's lying.

(WARRICK exits the residence.  Other Officers leave carrying boxes of stuff.  
WARRICK meets up with GRISSOM.)

WARRICK:  Our shooter isn't only a liar, he's a thief.  Found tons of electronic
equipment in there, still in the boxes.

GRISSOM:  Well, either he's buying in bulk, or that stuff's hot.

WARRICK:  No guns or ammo.  But I do have his car keys.

(GRISSOM and WARRICK walk down the stairs to the car.  They unlock the car.  The
car alarm chirps.)

(GRISSOM looks inside the car.)

GRISSOM:  I'm afraid the only bullets in here are silver bullets.

(WARRICK looks outside the car for damage.)

WARRICK:  I may have something here.  The shooter's vehicle took out a mailbox.  
The dent's in the right spot, and the car is the right silver color

GRISSOM:  You got any paint transfer?

WARRICK:  Nothing visible.

GRISSOM:  Call auto detail.  We'll tow it back to the lab.

SCENE #19:

(DAVID PHILLIPS goes over the preliminary findings with NICK.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Blow came from an object roughly rectangular in shape,
resulting in a depressed fracture of the parietal bone,

(DAVID points to the wound at the back of the deceased's head.)

(Quick flashback to:  Someone standing behind GARRET KWAN, hits him on the back
of the head, he falls to the ground.)

(Quick CGI POV to:  Camera zooms into the wound and to the skull where blood
seeps through.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  (v.o.)  ... with radiating linear fractures extending outward
from the point of impact.  

(End of CGI POV.  End of flashback.  Resume to present.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Based on the fracture pattern, I'd say it was a single strike
to the head.

NICK:  Explains the lack of spatter at the scene.

DAVID PHILLIPS:  First hit's free.

NICK:  Killer knew what he was doing.

(DAVID turns around to pick up something he found.  He shows it to NICK.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  And, uh, take a look at this.  Black plastic.  Found it in the
wound.

NICK:  Possible transfer from a murder weapon?

WARRICK:  Hey.

(MATTHEW PHELPS stops painting and turns around.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  I heard you got the shooter.

WARRICK:  It's not that simple.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  You think it's him?

WARRICK:  We got all our guys on this, Matt, all right?

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Yeah.

(MATTHEW PHELPS turns around and resumes painting.  WARRICK watches as a group
of kids jog by wearing football uniforms.)

WARRICK:  You still using them same old uniforms?

(He stops painting and turns around to talk with WARRICK.)

MATTHEW PHELPS:  That stuff's expensive, man.

WARRICK:  Yeah.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  But we managed to get the basketball court tarmacked, thanks to
contributions from folk like you.

WARRICK:  Hey, I ain't stupid.  I know where I came from.  I wouldn't be
anywhere, if it weren't for this place.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Well, you was always going places.  You just lacked discipline.

WARRICK:  Still do.  I don't recognize this ugly-ass gang symbol.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  You know, it's, it's hard to keep up with it all.  I just don't
know anymore.  What with all the break-ins ...

WARRICK:  Break-ins?!

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Rec center's van was stolen a couple days ago.  How am I going
to tell these kids that they can't play in the semifinals 'cause I got no way of
getting them there?

WARRICK:  I'll look into it for you, all right?  We'll get them there.  When's
Aimee's service?

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Wednesday.

WARRICK:  Matt, if there's anything I can do ...

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Just get me five minutes alone with the shooter.  Just five
minutes.  I know it's not going to bring Aimee back ... but I can't sleep at
night, knowing that he's still breathing out there.  Can you?

(WARRICK'S cell phone rings.  He answers it.)

WARRICK:  Brown.

GRISSOM:  (on phone)  Jaycobs has an alibi.

[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT - HALLWAY -- DAY]

(WARRICK and MATTHEW PHELPS walk into the Police Department.)

GRISSOM:  Mr. Phelps, it's good to see you again, sir.  (to WARRICK)  Would you
excuse us a moment?  Warrick.

(They walk to the side.)

GRISSOM:  What's he doing here?

WARRICK:  If Jaycobs is going to slip through our fingers, I need someone else
to explain to him what went wrong.

GRISSOM:  This was not a good idea.

(WARRICK looks over and sees a man standing in BRASS' office.)

WARRICK:  That's supposed to be his alibi?

GRISSOM:  David Artiss.  Says he was with our suspect the night of the drive-by.  
Says he dropped him off at PJ's tavern right before we picked him up.  Says he
also saw him find the mac.

WARRICK:  Clothes he slept in, bloodshot eyes.  The guy's a junkie, Grissom.  
You can see it, I can see it, and the jury will see it.

(BRASS joins WARRICK and GRISSOM.)  

BRASS:  DA listened to the alibi's statement.  He knows it's questionable, but,
uh ...

WARRICK:  But what?

BRASS:  Half an hour before the house was shot up, Jaycobs and his alibi were at
the sports chalet.

WARRICK:  Come on.

BRASS:  Salesperson remembered seeing both of them.  They bought a baseball bat.  
Artiss even has the receipt.

WARRICK:  Sports chalet is ten minutes away.  That's no alibi.

BRASS:  I don't know.  After what the DA heard, he said he's not going to file
charges.  Doesn't want the clock to tick.

WARRICK:  So that's it?  As easy as that, he walks.

(The hallway door opens and GENE JAYCOBS walks out.  MATTHEW PHELPS stands off
to the side and sees him walk out into the hallway.)

BRASS:  Look at it this way -- you have more time to build your case.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Is that him?  Why are they letting him go?  Why are they
letting him go?!  What are you guys doing?

(MATTHEW PHELPS sees GENE JAYCOBS and completely looses it.  WARRICK stands in
the middle and holds the man off.  He pushes MATTHEW PHELPS out of the hallway.)

WARRICK:  Not here.  C'mon.

MATTHEW PHELPS:  What are you doing?!  He killed my daughter!

WARRICK:  C'mon.  We're going to cool off.

(WARRICK gets MATTHEW PHELPS out of the hallway.)

BRASS:  (to GRISSOM)  They're going to put Jaycobs in protective custody to
avoid repercussions in the community.  Where are we going to put Warrick?

boxes on the table.)

ARCHIE:  ... Cool-looking office.  It was kind of fun being out in the field.  
Pulling drives, collecting evidence ... flashing I.D.  I think I got a flair for
it.

NICK:  You bucking for a promotion?

ARCHIE:  Not bucking ... nudging.  You know people put their lives on these hard
drives?

SERENA CHASE:  No, um ... this is actually harmless fun, so...

VEGA:  Court documents Garret Kwan was suing you for sexual harassment.

SERENA CHASE:  Are you, um, familiar with the term "spurious"?

VEGA:  Are you familiar with the term "murder suspect"?

SERENA CHASE:  I was just trying to let him know I was available, okay?  Low
pressure.  The guy freaked out, he thought I was trying to get him into some
bogus lawsuit, so he preempted me with one of his own.  It's called a scare
tactic.

NICK:  Scared to lose your job?  Your five-figure bonus?  

VEGA:  Scared enough to kill him?

SERENA CHASE:  Okay, look, I was flirting with the guy.  I will e-mail you with
the number from my lawyer.

(WARRICK puts the bag on GRISSOM'S lab table and opens it.  He starts pulling
out trophies and showing them to GRISSOM.)

WARRICK:  Matt's team won this three years ago.  This trophy was given to the
rec center last year.  I found all this stuff in Jaycobs' car.

(GRISSOM stands up.)

GRISSOM:  Well, if this is evidence, it needs to be tagged and catalogued.

WARRICK:  This is the same guy who shot Matt's daughter in the head.  He's
walking around laughing at us.

GRISSOM:  Can you prove that?

WARRICK:  (yelling)  What is this?  I've been putting guys away like this for
years.  And now that it matters, it's like you're holding me back here.

(He's getting louder.  GREG and another office worker come out of their labs to
see what's going on.)

GRISSOM:  The job, Warrick, is to process evidence.  Objectively, and without
prejudice.

WARRICK:  I'm so tired of hearing that.  I've heard it a million times.  I can't
be like you.  I'm not a robot, okay?  

(This surprises GRISSOM.)

WARRICK:  I actually care about these people.

(JACQI FRANCO in her lab pushes her chair to see what's going on.)

(GRISSOM doesn't argue with WARRICK.)

GRISSOM:  You know what?  You're not working on this case anymore.  I'll have
another assignment for you tomorrow.

WARRICK:  Keep it.

cart aside as he storms out the hallway.)

GREG:  We got to talk.

NICK:  Hey, did you I.D. that scraping from my vic's head wound yet?

GREG:  Yeah, yeah, it's a common plastic, polyethylterephthalate -- P.E.T.--
Used in everything from garbage bags to magnetic tape to floppy disks.

NICK:  Okay, thanks.

(NICK turns to walk away.  GREG stops him.)

GREG:  Yeah, but that's not what I wanted to talk about.

NICK:  What, then?

(GREG motions for NICK to come into his lab.  Amused, NICK steps forward.)

GREG:  Look, I thought that we had a relationship.  What are you doing taking
Archie out into the field, instead of me?

NICK:  (laughs)  It's the right tool for the right job, man.  You have to
understand the world you're investigating.  Hey, Archie.

ARCHIE:  (lifts his head)  Yeah?

NICK:  Hey, what's that star trek episode where the guy's got the forehead
thingy, and the time portal ... ?

ARCHIE:  In Classic, TNG, DS9, Voyager or Enterprise?

NICK:  I have no idea what you are talking about.

ARCHIE:  It doesn't matter.  Look, I got something to show you here.  I found
this on Anders' computer.

NICK:  What is this, a video game?

ARCHIE:  No, it's actually an FRPG:  "Fantasy role-playing game."  You see,
players use avatars to represent themselves in a fantasy world.  There's Serena,
Todd, and Kwan in this alternate universe conjuring up a gateway, which summons
a beast-like Anders, who decapitates Kwan.

NICK:  You know a lot about this stuff, don't you?

ARCHIE:  Mm-hmm.

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  It was merely a game.  An entertainment.

NICK:  Nah, it's more like a place where you can play god, right?  Maybe treat
people the way you wish you could treat them in real life?

VEGA:  Virtual murder is not quite as satisfying as the real thing, is it?

NICK:  You look a little uncomfortable, Mr. Molyneaux.

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  This office is always uncomfortable.  Ventilation sucks.  I
put Kwan in my game because I was upset.

NICK:  Upset about what?

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  I was designing characters for a new multi-player Sim ... on
company time.  Kwan found out ... somehow.  Man always seems to be one step
ahead of his underlings.

NICK:  How?

ANDERS MOLYNEAUX:  If I'd known, he would've been working for me.  In this
instance, he informed the board.  Unauthorized use of bandwidth.  Nearly got me
fired.

VEGA:  But you didn't kill him.

ANDERS MOLYNEUX:  No.  Am I sorry he's gone?  No.

NICK:  Then transfers the data to Kwan's machine.  Big brother.

ARCHIE:  Company owns a network, company owns what's on it.  Sick, but legal.

NICK:  Well, knowledge is power.  Kwan had his computer set up to auto-burn a
new disk every night-- here.  This was made the night of the murder.  If we
found out o was away from their desk at the time of death ... we got our killer.

(NICK hands ARCHIE a disk.  ARCHIE runs it and looks at the data.)

robbery, if not murder.  By the time you get to lockup, every roughneck in the
joint is going to know you off'ed a nine-year-old little girl.

(GENE JAYCOBS snickers.)

GENE JAYCOBS:  You know, in school, you were a nerd, Brown.  You were, remember?  
Every kid there used to beat your ass.  Thick glasses, hand-me-down clothes,

MATTHEW PHELPS:  Yeah, yeah.  And then what?  Lawyers? Trial?  You wait ten
years for somebody else's definition of Justice.  And they always put the
criminal's rights before the victim's.  The first good night's sleep I had was

nine millimeter cartridge in the backyard of a house a few doors down from where
Jaycobs said he found the gun.  Backyard of a house that had been broken into.  
You said he was a thief, right?

WARRICK:  Yeah.

he was breaking into houses.  Apart from that, I think he was telling the truth.

Xanaphia (19:29)

Lolo1710 (19:41)

Sonmi451 (21:20)
