Best Dialogs:
Greg: "Mick Sheridan the movie producer? I grew up watching his action blockbusters -car chases, ninjas, cyborg death machines. We used to make body armor out of tinfoil, and re-enact the scene all over the neighborhood. What about you? You were a green beret kid? Secret agent?"
Grissom: "I'm not telling. And stay away from my tinfoil."

Greg: "Well, hush money or not, you have to admit that whole fantasy night thing was a pretty cool gift from a very generous boss."
Sara: "Greg, don't you have a birthday coming up?"
Greg: "Why, yes, Sara, I do."
Catherine: "I'm thinking ear-shredding rock, a beautiful model, boatloads of sushi and ... latex?"
Greg: "Eh, that was last year."
Grissom: "I think fantasies are best kept private."

My Comment:
The case is only slightly interesting. Fast cars and skin-deep people. Yawn! But we have a few nice shipper moments to enjoy.

Greg tells Grissom something about his childhood and asks him at the same moment about his - but - of course - he gets no answer from the boss. Also he gives Grissom a broad hint about "a very generous boss" and Sara helps out by telling that Greg´s birthday is coming up soon. Grissom looks pretty perplexed.

Greg teases Sara.
Sara: "Please tell me there's something more to this guys and cars thing beside the obvious penis-extension metaphors."
Greg: "So you want me to lie?"

Hodges flirts with Catherine.
Hodges: "The abrasives give grip to the tip when it hits the ball."
Catherine: "Stop trying to make that sound dirty. Our vic had a callus on his hand."
Hodges: "Mmm ..."
Catherine: "Don't. Which means that he was probably playing a lot of pool."
Hodges: "Where do you go in this town to shoot stick with a hot blonde and a Ferrari?"

Greg flirts with Catherine.
Greg: "You know, I'd settle for a birthday breakfast."
Catherine: "Now that is a fantasy."
