FLASH IN.

[VARIOUS EXT. LAST VEGAS CITY LIGHTS (STOCK) - NIGHT]

CUE SONG:  "Mad World", Gary Jules


FADE IN.

[INT. CLUB -- NIGHT]  

(Men and women drink.  One man smiles as he's flanked by two women - one woman is kissing his neck.)  

(Across the room, a blonde-haired woman stares worriedly at her cell phone.)  


[EXT. STRIP - NIGHT]

(Outside, a limo passes by.  In the back seat of a car, a young Vietnamese man sits and watches the limo pass by.  His face is bruised and there are tears staining his cheeks.)  

(The cab he's sitting in drives away.)


[INT. TAXI POV]

(The young man looks out the windows as the taxicab drives around the strip.  The bright lights from passing motels and other establishments reflect back through the rolled-up window.)  

(The taxi driver's sweating.)

(The young man in the back seat glances over at the taxi driver.)  


[START:  SPLIT SCREEN]

(Top half:  [INT. CASINO]  The man from the bar leaves with two women.)

(Bottom half:  [TAXI CAB]  The taxi stops and parks.  The driver engages the brakes and sees the young man leave.)  

TAXI DRIVER:  Hey! Where's my money?

(The young man turns around and yells back to the taxi driver.)  

YOUNG MAN:  You wait here!


(Top half:  Cameras flash as photographers snap photos of the man walking through the casino; several women follow him.)  

(A young woman in red snaps a picture of the man walking by.  He notices her and turns back to look at her as he passes.)  

MAN:  You want to come with us?

(A man standing in the back glares at the man walking by.)  

(Bottom half:  The taxi driver waits.  The fare changes from 7.20 to 7.40.  The taxi driver continues to wait.) 

(Top half:  The blonde-girl in red turns to her friend standing next to her.)  

TALLY JORDAN (WOMAN IN RED):  Oh, my God.  Come on.

(The two head out, following the man.)  

(Bottom half:  The taxi driver takes out his log and writes in it:  270 7888 OAKEY ST.) 

(Top half:  The party has moved outside to the pool.)  

(Bottom half:  The taxi driver continues to wait.  The fare changes from 8.00 to 8.20.) 

(Top half:  The blonde-haired woman in red and her friend are now sitting on either side of the famous dark-haired man.  He pays her special attention.

(Bottom half:  The taxi driver continues to wait.  The fare changes form 8.20 to 8.40.)

END OF SPLIT SCREEN

CUE SOUND:  GUNSHOT



FADE IN FROM WHITE

[EXT. 7888 OAKEY STREET - NIGHT]

(Police cars with their flashing lights are at the site.  Officers mill about the area.)

(Camera moves into the car and we notice the fare is now at 24.00.  The taxi driver is slumped forward against the driver's wheel, his eyes closed.  We note the blood coating the shirt covering his right shoulder.)  

(Sara turns on her flashlight and looks at the driver's wound.)  

SARA:  Gunshot wound to the neck.  No visible GSR.

(She looks up and notices the visor.  She flips it down and sees the money.)  

SARA:  Money on the visor.  It wasn't a robbery.

(Grissom is looking in the back of the cab.)  

GRISSOM:  Dirt clods on the floor mat look undisturbed.  Could be from the last
fare.  I don't see any shell casings, though.

SARA:  Partition's closed.  Bullet-proof glass.  He was not shot from inside.

(Grissom walks around the cab as Sara snaps photos of the dead body.)  

(He sees the bullet holes in the passenger door.)  

GRISSOM:  Well, I got two bullet holes in the passenger door.

SARA:  That's a weird side of the car for a drive-by.

GRISSOM:  Maybe he wasn't shot here.  Maybe he just ended up here.

(Grissom looks around the area.  He sees the detective talking with someone in
uniform.  Grissom calls out to him.)  

GRISSOM:  Excuse me?

(The man from the Transit Board looks up.)  

GRISSOM:  Are you with the Transit Board?

MTB REP:  Yeah.

GRISSOM:  Do you have the dispatch log?

(He hands the log to Grissom.  From what we can see, the log shows:  

     270  2549 LAS VEGAS ---
     270  465 LEXINGTON   10:01
     270  3900 LAS VEGAS  10:45  1040
     270  2112 WESTERN BL.  11:01  420
     270  4500 W. TROPICANA  11:30  780
     270  20 FREMONT  12:10  980
     270  7888 OAKEY ST.   12:55.  {BLANK}     )

(Grissom hands the log back.)  

GRISSOM:  Thanks.

(Grissom turns and leaves.)  

MTB REP:  Why's he leaving?

(Sara takes a photo, then puts her camera down to answer the man's question.)

SARA:  Well, that's kind of what he does.

(Sara leans forward into the cab and notices the camera.)  

SARA:  Is this camera always on?

MTB REP:  Only on HBO.  It takes stills for ten seconds when the door opens, and
then for the first ten seconds of the fare.

SARA:  We're gonna need the pictures.

(Grissom is walking away from the site and dialing his cell phone.)  

CATHERINE:  (from phone)  This is Catherine.

GRISSOM:  (to phone)  It's Gil.  How you doing?

CATHERINE:  (from phone)  I'm busy.  Checking up on me?

GRISSOM:  (to phone)  Why would I need to do that?

CATHERINE:  (from phone)  You tell me.

GRISSOM:  (to phone)  Look, I know you tend to get a little territorial about
your crime scenes, and I don't want there to be any tension between us, so I'm
giving you fair warning.

(Grissom stops when he sees the tire treadmarks on the asphalt.)  

CATHERINE:  (from phone)  Fair warning for what?  

(cc)  You're at 7888 Oakey Street. Am I right?

Cut to:  

[EXT. PARKING LOT - NIGHT]

(Catherine is kneeling down next to a dead body in the parking lot.)  

GRISSOM:  (from phone)  Hi.

(She looks up and sees Grissom.  He smiles and waves his cell phone at her.)  

(Jaw dropped open, Catherine closes her cell phone.)

CUT TO:  



[INT. -- NIGHT]  

(Julian Harper's dead body rests against the cushions as Robbins takes his liver
temperature.  Warrick snaps photos of the body.)  

ROBBINS:  Julian Harper.  If it weren't for the cyanosis, I'd say he was doing a
photo shoot for GQ.

WARRICK:  Yeah, I'm sure he wasn't ready for this photo shoot.

ROBBINS:  Body temp's 95.

(Warrick snaps more photos.  Robbins glances at his watch.)  

ROBBINS:  That would make TOD approximately 3:00 A.M.

(Warrick snaps photos of the bedside table with a couple of champagne bottles, a
hotel room VIP card key, a rolled-up bill and some white powder on the black
tabletop.)

WARRICK:  Well, there's plenty of drugs around here.  You think he OD'd?

(Robbins checks the victim's mouth and eyes.)  

ROBBINS:  Yeah, no edema.  Some petechia.  Could be suffocation or
strangulation.  But no ligature marks or bruising.  However ...

(Camera zooms in for an extreme close-up of black fibers on the victim's neck.)  

ROBBINS:  ... some fibers under the chin.

(Robbins puts the sample in a bindle.  Warrick continues snapping photos.)  

(Robbins takes a digital camera out.)  

WARRICK:  What are you doing?

ROBBINS:  It's for my scrapbook.  I've got a perfect spot for him -- a place of
honor between Tupac and Entwhistle.

CUT TO:  



[EXT. MOTEL PARKING LOT -- NIGHT]  

(Close-up of the victim, his head in a pool of blood.  Grissom and Catherine
kneel down next to the body.  Catherine snaps photos of the victim.)  

GRISSOM:  The taxi's last drop-off was this address.  This guy's got dirt on his
shoes and pants.  There was dirt in the cab.  He's got to be the last fare.

CATHERINE:  So, somebody killed them both.  And if it's about money, doesn't
look like this guy has much.

GRISSOM:  Well, I guess it's relative.

START:  SPLIT SCREEN

(Top screen:  Robbins raises the digital camera to snap a photo of Julian
Harper.)

(Bottom screen:  Catherine raises her camera to snap a photo of the victim.)

GRISSOM:  It depends on who you are.

FADE IN.

[EXT. MOTEL PARKING LOT -- NIGHT]  

(Catherine checks out the victim's identification.)  

WILLOWS:  Samay ... Samay Thao.  15527 East Charleston Road.  That's a long way
from here.

(Grissom notes the wounds on the victim's chest.)  

GRISSOM:  I count six shots in his chest.  There were two in the cab, one in the
cabbie.  If the math is correct, that's nine.

CATHERINE:  Suggests semi-automatic, but I don't see any shell casings here.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, there were none in the taxi, either.

CATHERINE:  Killer could have picked them up.

GRISSOM:  To shoot a guy six times in the torso, you either have to be very
close, or a hell of a shot.

DAVID PHILLIPS:  It's okay if I roll him?

GRISSOM:  Yeah.

(David rolls the body onto its side and pushes up the shirt as Catherine snaps
more photos of the victim's wounds.)

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Well, no through-and-throughs.   We should be able to recover
some bullets from the body.

GRISOSM:  Hang on.  (points)  What do you make of that?

(He points to the markings on the victim's bloodstained shirt.)  

DAVID PHILLIPS:  Looks like he rubbed up against something.

(Catherine looks around.)  

CATHERINE:  Could be transfer from that railing.  There's some paint flaked off
of that railing.

(Grissom turns and looks at the railing on the second floor.)  

(Quick flash of:  Samay Thao is on the second floor.  Someone uses a semi-
automatic weapon and shoots Samay Thao.  The impact form the bullets pushes him
up and over the railing.)  

(End of flash.  Resume to present.)  

(Grissom and Catherine make their way down the second floor hallway.  Grissom
checks the concrete floor along the way and finds a lot of blood spatter.)  

GRISSOM:  We got blood drops.

(Catherine looks over at the metal gate.  Grissom looks down over the railing at
the body below.)  

(Catherine sees metal cut.)  

CATHERINE:  Gil.  This looks fresh.

GRISSOM:  Hey, Brass?

SHORT CUT TO:
(An officer kicks the door in and rushes into the apartment.  A second officer
and Brass follow.  A man sitting on the floor starts shouting in Laotian.)  

BRASS:  Las Vegas Police!  Put the gun down!

KEO VIPRAXAY:  (shouting in Laotian)  

BRASS:  (firmly)  Put the gun down!  (softer)  Put it down.

(The man puts the gun down.  Immediately, officers push him to the floor and
handcuff his hands behind his back.)  

KEO VIPRAXAY:  (shouting in Laotian)  (then, in English)  I shoot ... burglar!

CUT TO:  



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



[INT. PALMS HOTEL - HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT]

(Nick and Warrick stand at the base of the bed looking down at the body as they
both put on a pair of gloves.)  

NICK:  Julian Harper.

(Warrick nods.)  

NICK:  Wasn't he supposed to be like, uh ... (very quietly)  the next Brad Pitt
or something?

WARRICK:  Yeah. Now he's the next River Phoenix.

(Warrick turns as he looks around and walks into the next room where Sofia
Curtis is interviewing Gerald, also known as "Blinky".  He stops and stands next
to her.)  

SOFIA CURTIS:  All right, Gerald.

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Uh, they call me Blinky.

SOFIA CURTIS:  And what was your relation to Julian Harper?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Best friends since kindergarten.  Now I work for him.

SOFIA CURTIS:  What did you do for him?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Pretty much everything.  You know, bought his stuff,
hooked him up.  Drove him to meetings.

WARRICK:  Did you find the body?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  I ordered room service.  I wanted to see if he was
hungry.  Boom, there he was.

WARRICK:  Did you touch or move the body in any way?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Uh, no way. No.  I watch those murder shows, you know?  
I know to just keep my hands to myself, and, uh, call the cops.

SOFIA CURTIS:  What is with the robe?

(Warrick looks at the officer standing nearby.)  

WARRICK:  Did you pat him down?

OFFICER:  He's packing a small, friendly weapon.

WARRICK:  Would you mind standing up for us, sir?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Nah, bro, I-I-I ... kind of got the angle of the
dangle going.  The boing, boing, boing.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Stand up.

(Uncomfortable and awkward, Blinky stands up.)  

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  I, uh, took a Prevalis on the plane over.  I been
pitching a tent for, like, eight hours.  Yeah, I-I think I need to consult a
physician.

SOFIA CURTIS:  It's called a priapism.  Just in case you were wondering.

WARRICK:  What else are you on, man?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Oh, uh, nothing.  I mean, uh, I smoked a little herb
at the club, but that's it.

WARRICK:  What about Julian?

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Oh, Jules? Oh, no, he, uh ... he won't even take
aspirin.  You know, he's organic.  You know, treats his body like a temple.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Well, we're gonna need a list of everyone who was here
worshipping the temple.

(She hands him her notebook and pen.)  

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Can I sit down?

SOFIA CURTIS:  Yeah.

(In the background, we hear the shower water running.)  

WARRICK:  Did someone turn a shower on or something?

SOFIA CURTIS:  You cleared that room, right?

(The officer takes out his gun and heads for the bathroom.)  

(Warrick and Sofia both follow.  They both draw their weapons as they head into
the bathroom.)

(In the shower, a young woman in her underwear is on the floor in a fetal
position.)  

WARRICK:  Hey!  Are you okay?

(Warrick tries to help her sit up.  She immediately throws up.)  

SOFIA CURTIS:  (calls out)  Hey!  We need a medic!

(The young woman continues throwing up.)  

WARRICK:  And a bag for stomach contents.

CUT TO:  



[EXT. MOTEL - HALLWAY OUTSIDE APARTMENT -- NIGHT]  

(The officer escorts Keo Vipraxay out of the room.  They head downstairs past
Catherine and Grissom.  Brass steps out of the room.)  

BRASS:  His name is Keo Vipraxay.  He barely speaks English.  He's south Asian,
I think.  Anyway, it's all clear.

CATHERINE:  Thanks, Jim.

(Grissom and Catherine enter the room.)  

SHORT TIME CUT TO:  



[EXT. MOTEL - APARTMENT -- NIGHT]  

(Catherine looks at the end of the shot.)  

CATHERINE:  Double *** buck.  Standard shot is nine pellets.

GRISSOM:  That would account for all the hits.

CATHERINE:  So you're saying that a single shotgun blast, through a security
door, took out two separate victims in two separate locations?

GRISSOM:  Weird, huh?

(Quick flash of:  [NIGHT]  The cab pulls up.)  

GRISSOM:  (v.o.)  The cab drops Samay Thao in front of this building.

(Cut to:  The cab door slams shut and Samay Thao heads toward the building.)

(End of flash.  Resume to present.)  

(Grissom stands in front of the door as Catherine turns the laser on through the
small hole cut in the wire door.  A red dot appears on Grissom's chest.)  

GRISSOM:  And the position of the blood drops gives us a pretty good idea of
where Samay was standing when he was shot.  He was a little shorter than me.

(Catherine adjusts the laser light.)  

CATHERINE:  Shots were centered on his chest, about there.

(Quick CGI visual image:  A blue light visualization of Samay Thao stands
outside the door near the railing.  He's shot and the image vanishes, leaving
just the red laser pointing in the direction of the shot.)  

GRISSOM:   My guess is, the cab was parked down there.  

(Grissom points behind him.)  

(Quick CGI visual image:  A blue light visualization of the taxicab down on the
parking lot.  A gunshot fires and the taxi takes off.)  

GRISSOM:  The driver peeled out when he got shot.

(End of CGI visual image.  Resume to present.)  

(Catherine takes out a measuring device and places it on the laser.)  

CATHERINE:  Vertical deflection down to the cab is roughly 60 degrees.  Standard
shot won't spread that far.

GRISSOM:  The pellets must have come through the screen.

(Quick flash of:  Keo Vipraxay raises the gun and fires.  The pellets go through
the screen, then hit Samay Thao in the chest.  Some of the pellets miss him and
go on to hit the taxi driver.)  

(End of flash.  Resume to present.)  

GRISSOM:  The old billiard ball effect.

CATHERINE:  The cab driver was collateral damage.

CATHERINE:  Okay, but the man with the shotgun said he shot a burglar.  What's
here to steal?

[START:  SPLIT SCREEN]

(Bottom half:  Grissom looks around the room and notes the various items in the
sparsely furnished room.)



(Top half)

[INT. PALMS HOTEL - HOTEL ROOM - DAY]

(Nick puts on his protective eye gear and turns on the ALS.)

NICK:  Semen on the bed sheets, as well as every other flat surface in here.

WARRICK:  (chuckles)  Yeah.  I've got vodka, champagne, cocaine ...

NICK:  Hey, hey.  Pantyhose.

[END:  SPLIT SCREEN]

(Nick picks up the pantyhose.  Warrick pushes the curtains aside and lets the
light into the room.)  

(He looks at the glass windows.)  

WARRICK:  I've got some smudges over here.  

(Nick steps up to the window and looks at it.  Warrick kneels down to look at
the floor.)  

WARRICK:  I've got some footprints.

(Warrick looks at the footprints and visualizes a body standing in front of the
window.  End visualization.)  

WARRICK:  I think someone was standing right there.

NICK:  Was this guy just doing it all over the hotel room?

(Quick flash of:  Julian Harper presses a woman flush up against the window
glass as he kisses her neck.  They're both laughing.  End of flash.)  

WARRICK:  If those are his footprints ... where are hers?

NICK:  Or her feet were up ... in the air.  You tell me -- you just had your
honeymoon.

WARRICK:  You want to swab this?

(Warrick hands Nick a swab.)  

CUT TO:  



[INT. BAR -- DAY]  

(Sofia Curtis interviews Eva, Julian's ex-wife, as she nurses her drink at the
bar.)  

EVA:  I just don't understand.  I mean, who would want to kill Julian?  I mean,
he'd had some weird fan mail, but I don't think any of those kinds of people
would be able to get in his suite.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Were you in his suite?

EVA:  The ex-wife isn't exactly the best person to have around when you're
looking to get laid.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Was that your choice or his?

EVA:  It was mutual.  I'm strictly his manager now.

SOFIA CURTIS:  So if you weren't in his suite, where did you go?

EVA:  I was taking care of business.  Checked the boys in, made sure the suite
was copasetic, had a drink at Skin, and played Pai Gow until hotel security came
to get me.

SOFIA CURTIS:  So how did you get to be his manager?

EVA:  When I was with him, he was broke.  Then after the divorce, I still ...
did his laundry, paid his bills, read his scripts.  After a while, I wanted to
get paid.  Now I get ten percent of everything.  Look ... I need to make some
calls.  Julian's parents, the studio ... can we talk about this later?

SOFIA CURTIS:  Sure. But I need your prints and your DNA now.

CUT TO:  



[INT. CSI - FORENSIC AUTOPSY -- DAY]  

(Robbins reports his findings to Warrick.)  

ROBBINS:  Tox shows low levels of cocaine, alcohol and Prevalis.  Rules out
overdose.

WARRICK:  Really? I guess he was just acting about the clean-living part.  COD?

ROBBINS:  Asphyxia.

WARRICK:  Asphyxiated how?

ROBBINS:  I don't know.  No broken hyoid.  That and the absence of ligature
marks or bruises makes strangulation unlikely.

WARRICK:  Did you find any fibers in his nose or mouth?

ROBBINS:  Nope.

WARRICK:  That doesn't rule out suffocation.  Killer could have used something
that didn't shed fibers.

ROBBINS:  Or maybe they came from whoever he was rolling around with in bed.  
Found, uh, lubricant on his genitals, probably from a condom, and minor
abrasions on his penis, indicative of vigorous, prolonged activity.

WARRICK:  Sex, drugs and movies:  the American Dream.

ROBBINS:  Mm-hmm.

FADE OUT.

(COMMERICAL SET)



FADE IN.

[CGI EFFECTS:  STOMACH CONTENTS DRAINED]



[INT. HOSPITAL ROOM -- DAY]  

(Warrick and Sofia Curtis interview Kate, the young woman found in Julian
Harper's bathroom shower.)  

WARRICK:  Your stomach contents contain alcohol and traces of Triazolam.

KATE:  Try-as-a-what?

WARRICK:  It's a sleeping pill, has you reading the inside of your eyelids for a
week.

KATE:  I didn't take any pills.

WARRICK:  We also found cocaine in your bloodstream.  I guess you didn't take
that, either?

(She shrugs and rolls her eyes.)  

KATE:  So I did a couple of lines, but I didn't take any pills.  If I was gonna
take a pill, I would've popped e or a perc.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Miss Villa, we found you in Julian Harper's suite.  Were you
ever in his bedroom?

KATE:  (shrugs)  Who knows?  I don't even know how I ended up in Blinky's room.  
(groans)  Oh, my ... I swear, if that guy slipped me something ...

SOFIA CURTIS:  Tell us what you do remember.

KATE:  Um ... me and my girls were at Skin, and, uh ... Blinky came over and
said he was partying with Julian Harper.

(Quick flash of:  Julian Harper and the woman in red are in the pimpy booth
kissing.)   

KATE:  (v.o.)  And he said they had this pimpy booth, so we went over.  It
didn't turn out the way I hoped.

(Kate turns around and sees them.  Blinky is sitting next to her and offers her
a drink.  She reaches for the drink.)

(End of flash.)

KATE:  And the next thing I know, Blinky's on top of me.

SOFIA CURTIS:  We could assist you in reporting a date rape.

(She shakes her head.)  

KATE:  Thanks, but no.

WARRICK:  It's not an offer, it's our job.

KATE:  There's this Stuff Magazine party at Ghost Bar tonight.  I'm not gonna
make it harder for me to get in because I tattled on Julian Harper's best
friend.  I mean, if I run into them tonight ...

WARRICK:  Julian Harper will not be there.

KATE:  Trust me, he will.

WARRICK:  The coroner finished the autopsy early this morning.

KATE:  He's dead?

SOFIA CURTIS:  Yeah.

KATE:  I was in Julian Harper's suite when he died?  You're kidding me, right?

SOFIA CURTIS:  And being in his suite makes you a suspect.

KATE:  I am?

WARRICK:  Yes.  So we're going to need to take a sample of your DNA.

KATE:  Oh, man.  

(She thinks about it and starts to smile.)  

KATE:  I am so getting into that party tonight for sure.

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



[INT. - DAY]

(Sara interviews a convenience store owner.)  

STORE OWNER:  Yeah, I remember that guy.  He's, like, Chinese or something, real
spun out.

SARA:  He was on meth?

STORE OWNER:  Well, he was on something.  He was acting all shady.  Downed a
bottle of soda before he even paid for it.

SARA:  And that's how you knew he was on something?

STORE OWNER:  There ain't nothin' out here.  People here act messed up because
they are messed up.

SARA:  The Metro Transit Board said that he caught a Sunstar taxi from this
address.

STORE OWNER:  I called it for him.  Anything to get that tweaker out of here.

SARA:  Any idea how he got here in the first place?

STORE OWNER:  All I saw him do was walk through the door.

CUT TO:  



[INT. CSI - FORENSIC AUTOPSY - DAY]

(Robbins shares his findings with Catherine.)  

ROBBINS:  Samay Thao.  I don't even need to open him up to guess COD.  

(Robbins checks the victim's eyes.)  

ROBBINS:  Ocular inflammation.  Laceration of the sclera.  Hurts like hell when
you get a grain of sand in your eye.  Imagine this.

(He takes a piece of glass out from the victim's eye.)  

ROBBINS:  Bad night for Laotians.

CATHERINE:  What other Laotians are having a bad night?

(Cut to:  Robbins pulls out one of the tables from the morgue.)  

ROBBINS:  Solo traffic collision on Mount Charleston.  Came in early this
morning.  Noy Vipraxay.

CATHERINE:  Vipraxay?  Well, that's a hell of a coincidence.

ROBBINS:  Does it mean something to you?

CATHERINE:  Yeah, he's got the same last name as the guy who shot him.  In fact,
Grissom said that our vic over there caught a cab at a gas station near Mount
Charleston.  I'll have Auto Detail bring in his car.

ROBBINS:  Sounds like your double's becoming a triple.

CATHERINE:  Unless you got any more in your drawers?

CUT TO:  



[INT. CSI - A/V LAB - DAY]  

(Nick walks into the lab; Archie is standing in front of the computer.)  

NICK:  Hey, Archie.  See if you can help me out.  There was a smear on the
window at the hotel.  It came back saliva.  So I ran it through CODIS, got a
hit--felony battery on this guy, Willie Angel.

(Nick hands Archie a photo of Willie Angel.)  

NICK:  Now, he's a Las Vegas resident, but he wasn't a registered guest at the
hotel.  He has no affiliation with Julian's little entourage whatsoever.

ARCHIE:  I think I scoped this guy earlier.

NICK:  Really?

ARCHIE:  Yeah.

NICK:  Do it up.

(On the monitor in front of Archie, we see that he has the security video from
the hotel elevator cued up.  He goes through the video and finds Willie Angel.)  

ARCHIE:  Yeah, there he is.

NICK:  Mm-hmm.

ARCHIE:  (chuckles)  Looking dapper.  All right.

(He runs the tape and notes the time when Willie Angel steps off the elevator.)  

ARCHIE:  12:31 A.M.  Gets off on the high-roller floor.

(He runs the tape and notes the time on ELEVATOR 3 CAM when Willie Angel steps

ARCHIE:  Hey, 2:45 A.M.

NICK:  Shopping bags?  There's no mall on that floor.  He was shopping at Julian
Harper's.

ARCHIE:  Enough time to shop and kill.

NICK:  (sighs)  The Palms issued two card keys -- one to Julian, and one to his
boy Blinky.  But the database shows ... one, two ... three keys were used to
access the suite?

ARCHIE:  Well, assuming the third card was Willie's.  You can't just walk up to
the front desk and pull the "I lost my key" scam on a VIP suite.

NICK:  So ... how'd Willie get it?

(Catherine walks into the lab and finds Hodges yawning.)  

CATHERINE:  Hi.

HODGES:  (yawning)  Sorry.  I just started seeing someone.  Had a bit of a late
night.  Let me ask you something.  How do you know when it's gone from just
friends to more than?

CATHERINE:  Well, if you have to ask, it's just friends.

HODGES:  She is making dinner for me this weekend.

CATHERINE:  Are you the only guest?

HODGES:  Do her roommates count?

(Catherine doesn't say anything, but he catches her look.  He turns reports.)  

HODGES:  The splinter from your vic's eye has four distinct layers:
polycarbonate plastic, aluminum, acrylic and dye.  Being an audiophile, I prefer
the sound of vinyl.

CATHERINE:  It's from a compact disc?  Well, how did it end up in Samay Thao's
eye?

CUT TO:  



[INT. CSI - GARAGE]

(Catherine walks into the garage.  Grissom is already there with a smashed-up
car.)  

CATHERINE:  Noy Vipraxay's car.

GRISSOM:  Easy for you to say.

(Catherine reaches for a coat and puts it on.)  

CATHERINE:  Find anything?

GRISSOM:  Take a look at this.  Gravitational pooling directly under the
steering wheel.

(Inside the car, there's a large amount of blood on the steering wheel and a big
pool of blood on the floor.)  

(Quick flash to:  The car is at the bottom of the hill.)  

CATHERINE:  (v.o.)  The car was found at the bottom of a steep incline.

(End of flash.  Resume to present.)  

CATHERINE:  So he was leaning over it when he bled out.

GRISSOM:  Except he wasn't.  Take a look.  See this?  

(He shines the flashlight on the crime scene photo he has out on the roof of the
car.  It shows Samay leaning against the driver's window.)  

GRISSOM:  (cc)  These were taken at the crash site.  (audio)  If he'd have bled
out in the position he was found, there'd be blood on the door, not under the
steering wheel.

(He points to the door in the photo.  Catherine turns and looks at the bloodless
car door behind her.)  

CATHERINE:  So someone moved the body?

GRISSOM:  There was plenty of mud at the scene, and Samay had mud on his pants.  
Now, maybe we can match soil samples.

(Catherine looks at the CD player in the car.)  

CATHERINE:  Hang on.  

(In the CD player is a broken CD.  Catherine reaches in and removes the disk.)  

CATHERINE:  Trace came back on the splinter that was in Samay's eye.  It was a
CD fragment.  Samay was in this car.

SARA:  (o.s.)  Hey, guys.  

(Sara walks into the garage.  She's reading an open file folder.)  

SARA:  I got work card hits off prints from the two dead Laotians and the
shooter.

GRISSOM:  We already know their IDs.

SARA:  Well, did you already know that they all worked together?

BRASS:  So Samay Thao worked for you?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  Yeah, runs the dryers.

BRASS:  When was the last time you saw him?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  He's been off a couple days now.

BRASS:  Did you know, uh, Noy or Keo Vipraxay?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  Sure. They work here, too.

BRASS:  They brothers or cousins, or what?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  Brothers.  Keo's older.  I hear they got six more back in Laos.  
They work swing -- they're on at 4:00.

BRASS:  Were they friends of Samay's?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  No!  No way.  Keo and Noy are Lao Loum.  They're lowlanders.  
Samay's Hmong; he's in the hills.  They're born to hate each other.  Some tribal
crap.  What kind of trouble are they in?

BRASS:  The kind where you stop breathing.  Noy's dead -- car accident.  Samay's
dead, too -- Keo shot him.

(Joe Cavanaugh turns and sees one of the workers lighting a cigarette.  He
starts shouting to him in Lao.)  

JOE CAVANAUGH:  (shouts)  (untranslated Lao)  

(The worker turns and quickly puts the cigarette out.)  

JOE CAVANAUGH:  (shouts)  (untranslated Lao)  

(The worker goes back to work.)  

BRASS:  You speak Lao?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  And Thai, Vietnamese, Tagalog.  I pulled a stint straight out of
high school.  I got southeast Asia; lucky me.

BRASS:  Yeah, I know how you feel.

JOE CAVANAUGH:  Did Keo tell you what happened?  I mean, his English isn't very
good.

(Brass looks at his watch.)  

BRASS:  No, we're, uh, we're still waiting on an interpreter.

JOE CAVANAUGH:  If you need any help, you let me know.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Willie Angel?

SOFIA CURTIS:  You can't fool the eye in the sky, Willie.  There's a lot of
people looking for you.

WILLIE ANGEL:  Okay, you got me.  What do you want?

(She motions to the officer and they step closer to Willie, who stands up.)  

WILLIE ANGEL:  Hey, what are you doing?

(They start to search his pockets.)  

WILLIE ANGEL:  Hey, you can't do that.

(She holds out the warrant.)  

SOFIA CURTIS:  Oh, this here says we can.

(The officer finds in one pocket that Willie has a card reader.  He hands it to
Nick.)  

NICK:  Ho-ho-ho!  Slick Willie.  Look out now.

(Sofia reaches into Willie's other pocket and takes out a handful of cards.)  

SOFIA CURTIS:  You collect card keys, Willie?

WILLIE ANGEL:  I won at those places.

SOFIA CURTIS:  Really?

WILLIE ANGEL:  I hang on to them for good luck.

NICK:  Well, I bet you're real lucky with this cheap magnetic stripe reader and
palm top, huh?  (to Sofia)  You know you can get into most hotel rooms in the
city with this thing?

(Quick flash to:  Willie stands in the casino behind one of the large machines
and punches the information into the stripe reader.  He swipes the card.)  

NICK:  (v.o.)  You take the old card key, you input the room number, a little
magnetic encoding ...

NICK:  (v.o.)  Julian comes back - (cc) drops his wallet and takes off his watch
- (audio) he falls asleep.

(Willie steps out from his hiding place and starts picking up the things off the
bedside table.)  

NICK:  (v.o.)  You rob him blind.

(Julian Harper stirs.)  

NICK:  (v.o.)   But he wakes up.  So it's kill him or go back to jail.

(He looks at Nick and Sofia sitting across the table from him.)  

WILLIE ANGEL:  I was in his suite.  And, yeah, I'm a thief.  But I didn't kill
anybody.

NICK:  You were in his suite for over two hours, man. That's more than enough
time to snag a couple shopping bags.

WILLIE ANGEL:  'Cause that sick, rich freak wasn't going to sleep.  He was
banging some blonde for, like, two hours.

(Quick flash of:  Willie is stuck in his hiding place while Julian and the
blonde-haired woman are on the bed.  He shakes his head.  End of flash.)  

WILLIE ANGEL:  Talk to her.

SOFIA CURTIS:  We're talking to you.

WILLIE ANGEL:  (sighs)  I don't know what the hell they were doing, but when she
left, he wasn't moving.  I thought he was asleep.  Then I saw the news this
morning.  If it's a killer you're looking for, talk to the girl in the red

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  Then gets back on at 2:33.

NICK:  Certainly looks like she's been through something rough.

(Archie sees something and smiles.)  

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  She forgot her pantyhose.

(He enhances the focus on the girl's legs.)  

NICK:  Good eyes.

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  Great legs.

WARRICK:  Been a while, Arch?

NICK:  Can you follow her out?

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  Yeah.  I just got this footage ...

(Archie goes to work as Greg walks into the lab.)  

GREG:  Hey, I heard you guys are having trouble with the Julian Harper case.

WARRICK:  Who'd you hear that from?

GREG:  Ecklie. He's putting me on it.

NICK:  Man, you gotta quit kissing his ass.

(Warrick chuckles.)

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  All right, fellas, check this out.

red dress steps out of the elevator.)  

(Eva runs out of the elevator and catches up with the girl in the red dress.)  

WARRICK:  Okay, that's Julian's manager.

(They watch as Eva puts some money in the girl's hand.  Eva leaves.)  

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hang on.

(Archie rewinds the footage.  They watch as Eva takes some money out of her back
pocket and gives it to the girl in the red dress.)  

(Archie enhances their hands.)  

NICK:  That's got to be at least a few G's.

GREG:  She a hooker?

WARRICK:  I don't know. I think she could be the killer.

NICK:  Solicitation murder?  Manager pays to have her client whacked.

(Archie follows the cameras and they watch as the girl in the red dress goes to
the bag shop.)  

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  She went shopping.

WARRICK:  Wait a minute.  What kind of hired killer takes their payoff and goes
to the mall?

ARCHIE JOHNSON:  I don't know.

There's the phone number.

(Warrick interviews Tally Jordan.)  

TALLY JORDAN:  You call my cell, I answer, and we talk.  And then you guys show
up and arrest me at the pool, in front of my friends.  Is that fair?

WARRICK:  You left Julian Harper's room at 2:33.  A couple of minutes later,
you're taking money from his manager.

TALLY JORDAN:  I'm not a prostitute.

WARRICK:  Couple hours later, Julian's dead.

TALLY JORDAN:  Okay, this is crazy.  I would never even think of killing Julian
Harper.  I've been a fan of his since he was doing cereal commercials.

WARRICK:  Oh, so you stalked him?  Is that it?  And then you killed him?

TALLY JORDAN:  I'm in Vegas for a speech tournament - (off their skeptical look)
-- Okay, a school-supervised trip.  Does that mean that my school is stalking
him, too?

WARRICK:  Is the club Skin on your school schedule?

TALLY JORDAN:  When I found out that Julian was going to be in Vegas at the same
time I was, I freaked.  Okay, I wanted a look, an autograph, or a picture at
most.  And what I got was incredible.

BLONDE WOMAN:  Go for it.  You're the one he wants.

TALLY JORDAN:  It was like I was in one of his movies.  Until he kicked me out
of bed and ... and then I get off the elevator, and there's his manager handing
me a wad of money.

[INT. CSI - INTERVIEW ROOM 2]

(Sofia interviews Eva.)  

EVA:  I tip all the girls Julian's with.

SOFIA CURTIS:  So you're his pimp?

EVA:  It keeps them from running their mouths.  It protects Julian's image.  
It's just a part of managing his career.



[INT. CSI - INTERVIEW ROOM 1]

TALLY JORDAN:  I had sex with Julian because I wanted to.

WARRICK:  But you took the money, and you bought a purse with it.

(Warrick indicates the purse on the table in front of her.)

SOFIA CURTIS:  I had a conversation with Julian's lawyer.  And he said you
weren't only his ex-wife, you were about to be his ex-manager.  That piss you
off?

EVA:  His lawyers and his agents don't like me.  They pressured him to drop me.  
But Julian and I are family.  That wasn't going to happen.

TALLY JORDAN:  Eva said if anyone asked, Julian was a gentleman.  Later he took
me out and got me a Katherine Baumann purse.  It's a much better story to tell

hard against the steering wheel several times.)  

GRISSOM:  (v.o.)   Samay kills Noy ...

scenes.)  

GRISSOM:  And then he goes to Keo's apartment and Keo shoots him, claiming self-
defense.

CATHERINE:  I don't buy it.  Keo shot him from the other side of a locked door.  
He was waiting to blow the guy away.

GRISSOM:  Which indicates that Keo knew Samay was coming.

SARA:  Maybe he hired Samay to kill his brother, and then he decided to cut him
out of the deal.  Noy had a life insurance policy issued through his union,
worth ten grand.

CATHERINE:  Life's getting cheaper.  Who's the beneficiary?

Cavanaugh.

INTERPRETER:  "There are many things I can tell him about you, so you tell him

BRASS:  In the interview, remember Keo said, "There are many things I can tell
them about you"?  You didn't tell me that.  You left that part out. Why?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  I told you what he said.  You're not arresting me because I
screwed up my translation?

BRASS:  You're a co-beneficiary of Noy Vipraxay's life insurance, right?

JOE CAVANAUGH:  So what?  I help my guys try to get a little security for their
families.  I help them in a lot of ways.  Driver's licenses, green cards ...

BRASS:  Oh, what, what?  Out of the goodness of your heart?  Come on, they have
to come to you.

JOE CAVANAUGH:  Without me, they're back in a rice paddy making three cents a
day.  Look, some of these guys put me on their policy.  It's their way of saying
"thank you."

BRASS:  So when one of your guys kills another one of your guys, you make money
out of it?  We both know that insurance companies don't even investigate claims
under ten grand.  So you get a free pass.

JOE CAVANAUGH:  You don't really think I'd have somebody killed for five grand?

BRASS:  I've seen it done for a lot less.

JOE CAVANAUGH:  That don't mean I did it.  There's new casinos that open all the
time.  They all got laundries.  I bring home 15 G's a month on the side.  So I
am not going to bend over a dollar to pick up a dime.

HODGES:  I was just having the greatest dream.

WARRICK:  You were out.

HODGES:  It was the '80s and I had this Don Johnson beard, you know, the Miami
Vice stubble.  It just gave me this air of danger.  My lady loved it.  (Warrick
nods.)  Um, I found two types of fibers on your guy's chin:  cotton and a
polyester-Lycra blend.  Both dyed black.

WARRICK:  Dyed black?  The bedding might have been cotton, but it wasn't black.

(Nick looks through the scope.)

NICK:  The vic had a pair of black cotton socks.

WARRICK:  Well, I did find black cotton fibers under his chin.

NICK:  Okay, transfer from the sock to the pantyhose, to the neck.  So the sock
was in between the pantyhose and the neck?

GREG:  Padding.  BCP, breath control play.

(Warrick nods.)  

GREG:  Couples increase their partner's pleasure through strangulation.  And if
you're not careful, it leaves marks.

WARRICK:  Hey.

NICK:  Hmm?

WARRICK:  There's some burnt residue on this lamp.

(Warrick puts the residue in a bindle.)  

WARRICK:  You know what I think?  I think someone tied him up, and they couldn't
get the knot undone, because it melted.  So they panicked.  And they pulled the
hose down.

still around his beck and tied to the lamp.)  

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  Dude, Julian?

falls face down on the bed.)  

BLINKY (GERALD ALLISON):  (v.o.)  He did it to himself.  He did it to himself.  
So, I took the pantyhose, and I took them off the light.

murder two.

INTERPRETER:  (in Lao)  (untranslated)  

(He shakes his head.  The interpreter stops.  Keo turns and looks at Brass.)  

KEO VIPRAXAY:  (in English)  I brought Noy here to help me.

BRASS:  What?

KEO VIPRAXAY:  To work hard and save.  To bring our family here.  Our parent.  
Our sister.  My wife.  Instead he waste the money--on the DVD, gambling,
clothes.  

KEO VIPRAXAY:  Noy's life was worthless.  His death is not.

CUT TO:  



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



[INT. CSI - GRISSOM'S OFFICE -- NIGHT]  

(Grissom is in his office.  Warrick knocks on the door.  He looks up.)  

WARRICK:  Griss, we closed that actor case.

GRISSOM:  And?

WARRICK:  Accidental death as a result of auto-erotic asphyxiation.  

GRISSOM:  Strangled himself to death to enhance his own pleasure.

(Warrick nods.)  

GRISSOM:  It was in the days of public hangings that people first noticed that men would get erections and sometimes even ejaculate.  They called it "The Killer Orgasm."

WARRICK:  It's a waste.  Guy had everything -- money, fame ...

GRISSOM:  Yeah, look where he ended up.

CUE SONG:  "Mad World", Gary Jules

CUT TO: 


[INT. MORGUE]

LYRICS:
 All around me are familiar faces, worn-out places, worn-out faces

(The gurney carrying a body is wheeled down the hall.  The identification tag
around the body's big toe reads:
     N. VIPRAXAY
     09/22/05
     A. ROBBINS
     C. WILLOWS

(The gurney table stops next to a second body with the tag that reads:
     HARPER, JULIAN
     09/29/05
     DR. ROBBINS
     W. BROWN

LYRICS:
 Bright and early for the daily races going nowhere, going nowhere

(TOP VIEW DOWN:  The two dead bodies are side-by-side.)

(Someone pulls a sheet over the first body over his face.)

LYRICS:  ... Mad World ...

(Camera rises to show the face of the second body.  Someone pulls the sheet over the second body to cover his face.)  

FADE TO BLACK.

LYRICS:  ... Mad World ...

THE END.
