csi:cats in the cradle

6

There sure has been a lot of racism in the media lately. Between the Charleston church shootings, Obama using the N-word on TV to make a point about racism, the Confederate Flag debacle in South Carolina, FOX News…just FOX News in general, and now Don Lemon holding up a sign with the N-word on CNN, racism is a hot topic…again! The reality is, it never went anywhere. The quote above, from “A Different World” (Episode “Cats In The Cradle”, from season 5), held very true in 1992 when it aired, and it holds true today in 2015. Racism doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Neither will sexism, homophobia and transphobia. That’s society for you…

“And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He’d grown up just like me
My boy was just like me”

This scene couldn't get anymore perfect
  • Greg: Could've been a rockstar
  • Grissom: There's still time, Greg. Tell us about the foreign substance we found in the vic's wound track
  • Greg: Uh, well, I like to rub it all over a woman's body...even better, I, uh, like it when she rubs it all over me. And it's also used as a stool softener.
  • Catherine: It's also the only open lead in our case. Spit it out, Greg.
  • Greg: Mineral oil.
  • Grissom: Possibly used as a preservative to prevent rusting of high carbon steel.
  • Catherine: Like the blades of knives.
  • Greg: Old knives! New ones are made from stainless steel. I'm like a sponge I just absorb information
  • Grissom: I thought that was my line.
  • Greg: Yeah...and I absorbed it

♬ My new employee arrived just the other day
He came to the office in the usual way
But there were meetings to take and PO’s to pay
He learned to work while I was away
And he was leadin’ ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew
He’d say “I’m gonna be like you, Boss
You know I’m gonna be like you” ♬
