[S3E24] And The First Degree



Calleigh is a ballistics and tool mark specialist originally from Louisiana. She is fluent in Spanish and has a bachelor's degree in Physics from Tulane University. While working for the New Orleans Police Department, she was given the nickname "Bullet Girl" for her knowledge of, and expertise with, firearms. Calleigh is an almost eternal optimist, with a sunny disposition and a smile to match. However, this attitude does not in any way interfere with her quest to put criminals where they belong. She is well liked by all her co-workers, although they sometimes remark on her being almost "way too happy". And, while she does not believe in supernatural curses and the like, she does believe in karma.[1] Though her time as a CSI has exposed her to intense violence and gore, in season 2 it is shown that she has an intense fear of ants that Eric Delko helps her overcome.[2]In season 7, it's also shown that Calleigh uses a Sanyo Pro-700 that has been digitally modified to have as big a screen as her cell phone.[3]




[S3E24] And The First Degree



She also shares a mutual attraction with Special Agent Peter Elliott, a Secret Service agent from the Financial Crimes Division, when they first meet.[11] Hagen, in jealousy and hostility, tells Elliott to back off from Calleigh. Elliott becomes engaged to state attorney Monica West, but neglects to inform Calleigh of this, continuing to offer warm overtures to her. Calleigh is naturally upset and angry when his fiancée walks in and introduces herself, though Elliott tries to defend himself by saying that he was going to tell her soon.[12] Later, when the lab is under investigation by the FBI, Calleigh determines that Elliott was the last person to handle the money that went missing from evidence, and that it is Monica West who is leaking false information that discredited the Miami-Dade Crime Lab, as well as stealing the money.[13] Despite their fallings-out, Calleigh and Elliott remain friends, and she calls him in to determine the authenticity of money they confiscated during the course of a case.[14]


Ryan Wolfe's first case upon joining the lab investigates the possibility that Calleigh's father killed a man while driving under the influence of alcohol. Therefore, Calleigh and Ryan's relationship begins on a bit of a sour note.[4] However, Calleigh soon grows to accept him as a colleague, frequently assisting him when he was still a rookie. She is often caught in the middle of verbal sniping between Ryan and Eric Delko before the two made up and became friends.[15] She later buys an iPod for Ryan's niece, and, when he pays her back with a $100 bill, she is dismayed to learn from Federal Agent Peter Elliot that the bill is counterfeit. Though Calleigh confronts Ryan about his participation in the very Death Pool they are investigating (the source of the fake money), she does not follow up officially, and Ryan destroys all his "winnings" shortly afterwards.[14] The two have grown to be closer friends. In season 4, episode 16, Calleigh and Ryan argue over the morals regarding the case and a rumor spreads that the two have fought. At the end of the episode Calleigh invites Ryan out for a beer after work and the two smile at each other implying that the argument from earlier has been forgotten. In season 7, episode 20, after Ryan is kidnapped, Calleigh shows great concern for his discrepancies.


During an investigation in 2006, another of her former love-interests surfaces: an undercover ATF agent, Jake Berkeley. Unfortunately, she wrongly became convinced that Berkeley had become too enamored of his role in a weapons-dealing, drug-using motorcycle gang, and at one point Calleigh suspects he murdered his clean partner, Ken McCartney, though this assumption is later proved false.[16] They resumed their relationship by the end of season 5.[17] In fact, Calleigh goes to Antigua with Jake on her "first vacation in a long time," so it can be presumed that they are involved in a significant romantic relationship.[18] After the details of their relationship are leaked, Jake suggests that they should take a break from each other in order to continue working together.[19] It isn't a break that lasts for long, as they are soon holding hands just outside the lab.[20] After a pleasant brunch in which they both enjoy mimosas, Calleigh is involved in a shooting, leading to her being investigated by IAB. Calleigh confronts Jake about some extra mimosas on their tab, upset that the extra drinks call her own sobriety into question. She tells Jake that he may not be the right cop for her case, but Jake is the one who later exonerates her by finding the key piece of evidence.[21]


After colleague and friend Eric Delko is critically wounded in the line of duty, Calleigh and fellow CSI Ryan Wolfe go to the hospital to give him blood, but they learn that they are too late and that he is on plasma due to catastrophic blood loss. Calleigh and the others take turns at his bedside; she places her cross necklace in his hand to show how much she cares, and is scared for him while he is unconscious (Eric is Roman Catholic). She is the first to talk to Eric after he wakes up, and the first to learn of his impaired memory when he asks for his months-dead sister Marisol. Calleigh, not wishing to upset Eric in his critical condition by reminding him of her tragic murder, demurs for the time being. She is instrumental in discovering his shooter by her analysis of the bullet fragment recovered from Eric's head.[22] After Delko's return to work, Calleigh keeps a close eye on him, going over his reports and hoping his recovery is as complete as they would like. Unfortunately, she discovers a small but critical error in his procedure, which almost allows a killer to escape justice. Later, a depressed Delko declines to join her in the interview room, saying forlornly he came back to work too soon, even though he earlier provided critical insight to the case. Sympathetic, Calleigh allows him to sit out the interrogation.[23] The impairment of Eric's memory is further demonstrated when he fails to remember the woman who was suing him, and Calleigh intervenes for him. Eric appreciates that, and Calleigh appreciates being appreciated, at which point she surprises him by kissing him on the cheek.[7] After Jake is involved in an accident, Calleigh and Eric share a moment in which she verbally compares the relationship she has with both men, revealing that while she doesn't know how she feels about Jake, she trusts Eric with her life. This comparison seems to please Eric. Later, Calleigh and Jake kiss, with Eric looking on jealously. Calleigh notices that Eric had seen the kiss - and his strained expression - and looks very guilty as she gets on the elevator.[17]


In mid season seven, she has a delayed reaction to the smoke she had inhaled while trying to save the evidence in a fire with Ryan. Eric requests paramedics to be called and holds Calleigh while trying to keep her calm until they arrive. He rides with her to the hospital where she is treated by Alexx. Eric spends much time at her bedside during which he says, "I can't imagine living my life without you." When she later wakes up she confirms that she heard him and that it was "like a dream" to which he replies "It was real".[31] They have their first kiss in Season 7 Episode 16 ("Sink or Swim"). In Season 7 Episode 19 ("Target Specific"), Calleigh is working on a gathering evidence when a man, later identified as Sergei Patrenko, puts a bag over her face and steals her gun, but she manages to recover her gun at the end of the episode, and Sergei is shot and killed by a sniper while in custody. In Season 8 Episode 14, "In the Wind", Calleigh is shown in bed with Eric, passionately kissing.


Bruce Willis definitely did not just get a few laughs when he made his first appearance (Season 6, Episode 21, "The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad"), and they can thank Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing in Friends. According to CBR, Willis lost a bet to Perry, who wagered that their movie The Whole Nine Yards would be a box-office hit. As a result, Willis agreed to star in the sitcom for free.


Before receiving a Golden Globe Award for his outstanding performance in 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin both charms and annoys viewers with his role as Parker in Friends, first introduced in Season 8, Episode 17 ("The One With Tea Leaves"); Parker is Phoebe's boyfriend for two episodes, a constantly energetic person who seems to find everything commendable, even the most trivial details.


In Season 3, Episode 22 ("The One With The Screamer"), Ben Stiller leaves a great first impression for both Ross and the viewers when he shows up as Tommy, Rachel's theater date. When Tommy finds an elderly couple sitting in their seats accidentally, he screams at the couple, showing his true colors as a rage-fueled bully. As Ross is the sole witness to this outburst, Rachel still thinks of Tommy as a sweet guy.


Continuing his legacy as a renowned actor who first got his big break in the celebrated extreme body horror movie, The Fly (1986), Jeff Goldblum plays a legendary actor named Leonard Hayes, auditioning actors for his stage play. He offers Joey confusing advice so that the latter can nail his return audition, such as "don't be afraid to explore the vertical."


In the opening sequence of Season 3, Episode 24 ("The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion"), Monica is telling her friends about her boyfriend, Pete, at their usual couches. Tomas (Williams) and Tim (Crystal) quickly interrupt them, who share the seats with the gang as the shop is unusually crowded with customers. Tomas and Tim's story about the former's wife's infidelity intrigues the six main characters so much that when the duo leaves the shop, Monica could not recall what she was supposed to say about Pete in the first place.
