“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 child arrived just the other day;
Came to the world in the usually way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay.
He learned to walk while I was away.
He was talkin’ ‘fore I knew it.
And as he grew he said,
“I’m gonna be like you, Dad.
You know I’m gonna be like you.”


Chorus :
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.
We’ll get together then.
You know we’ll have a good time then.”

Well, my son turned ten just the other day.
He said , “Thanks for the ball, Dad. Come on, let’s play.
Could you teach me to throw ?” I said, “Not today.
I got a lot to do.” He said, “That’s okay.”
And he walked away and he smiled and he said,
“You know,
I’m gonna be like him, yeah.
You know I’m gonna be like him.”

Chorus

Well, he came from college just the other day,
So much like a man I just had to say,
“I’m proud of you. Could you sit for a while ?”
He shook his head and he said with a smile,
“What I’d really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys.
See you later. Can I have them please ?”

Chorus :
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.
We’ll get together then.
You know we’ll have a good time then.”

I’ve long since retired, my son’s moved away.
I called him up just the other day.
“I’d like to see you, if you dont mind.”
He said, “I’d love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
You see my new job’s a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But it’s sure nice talkin’ to you, Dad.
It’s been sure nice talkin’ to you.”

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
He’d grown up just like me.
My boy was just like me.
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
