Why in Database: Turtle themes appear in four episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

In Grave Danger (season 5, episode 24), the music of The Turtles is used, the recording that the kidnapper sent to the lab includes the song Outside Chance.

In Big Shots (season 7, episode 19), one character tells about the limo he was riding, at a slow pace.

See, first of all, that limo was turtle stepping’ it down the block.

In Kill Me if You Can (season 9, episode 15), turtle plays an important role because it has the status of a witness – it was splashed with blood. Therefore, Gareth (because that’s his name) is visible in a few scenes and in a large number of dialogues.

– Well,the blood void means that the tortoise was there during the shooting.

– Wonder if he’s a rare species. ‘Cause I read that African tortoises can be worth as much as $10,000.
– Just please hurry,okay? ‘Cause he’s been traumatized enough already.
– He’s a material witness in a homicide investigation.
– I meant traumatized by you.
– So who brings a tortoise to a gunfight? If the killer was trying to take it with him after he killed the girl, then it stands to reason that the killer brought it in the first place.
– Or maybe it was hers, which is why he killed her.

– The tortoise gave you up, man. We found your prints on his shell in Jena’s blood.
– Wait a minute, you have Gareth? Is he okay? Can I see him?
– That puts you at the murder, jackass.
– All right,okay. Yeah,I-I was there.
– Right.
– But I didn’t kill her. Jena was going through some stuff. Okay? So she wanted to go to Vegas to,uh pick herself up, have a little fun. You know? So I thought I’d just drop in on her, and I brought Gareth. She loved that tortoise.

– Jena, what have you got there?
– Not “what” Who. Say hello, Gareth. He’s a gift. For Mickey.
-Um, slow and steady wins the race, dude.

– Gareth Morton? The broher’s name is Gareth?
– Yes, like the cat.
– And the tortoise.
– And the dog.

In The Descent of Man (season 9, episode 19) there is only one mention of the turtle in the dialogue, but the turtle itself is quite crucial. The dialogue is abot various things that fall from the sky, poisons, people, turtles and it takes place after the main character has solved the case in which the killer turned out to be a bird and the murder weapon is the turtle threw from the air – which, of course, is a reference to the figure of Aeschylus, which the main character also mentions in this episode.

– Seems like a lot of things keep falling out of the sky, right? Poison, people, turtles.
– Tortoises.
– Whatever.
