** The third episode of Season 3 is a giant love letter to the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise, which actually is in the episode's plot with a pair [[spoiler:(actually a trio)]] of high-tech thieves who break into apartments in tuxedos. They're even called "James Bond wannabes" by a radio DJ.

* AmoralAttorney: These guys show up every so often as villains. One example is serial rapist D.J. Pratt's lawyer and a guy who [[spoiler:irradiates a copy of the Tibetan Book of the Dead with thallium in an attempt to defraud the city; this led to two radiation deaths and nearly got Sid killed as well.]]



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Every so often the [=CSIs=] will find a body that has fallen on something blunt. One example: A body that fell off a balcony and landed on a sharp ice sculpture.



* ImplausibleSynchrony: The 333 killer will time certain events to happen exactly at 3:33, and he can rest assured that Mac ''will'' be freaked out when he looks at his watch.

** There is one specific rapist in the second season named D.J. Pratt who goes out of his way to rape the same woman '''twice''', the second time after he was acquitted of the first rape. This turns him into Aiden's ArchEnemy when the rape victim comes to her and turns him into a SmugSnake ArcVillain for the season; her pursuit of Pratt leads her to tamper with evidence, [[spoiler:get her fired, and eventually get her killed by Pratt; that murder is how they bring him down after he and his lawyer show arrogance towards the CSIs and after he rapes a prostitute in another episode (said prostitute, in an attempt to get away from him, tripped and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice fell onto a spike]]]]. Pratt is one of the most stuck-up enemies on the show.

* RecruitedFromTheGutter: One VictimOfTheWeek was an up-and-coming musician who was a homeless drug addict until his girlfriend and her band took him in. [[spoiler: It turns out that they'd been invoking this trope; rescuing a drug addict to join their band and [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident arranging a relapse/overdose]] when their life insurance had "matured" enough to give them a big payout.]]

** Two seasons later, during the Cabbie Killer saga, the team discovers that a student at an Ivy League prep school and his father [[spoiler:are in fact two-fully grown men who are using the school and parties to prey on female student; one of the rape victims is the daughter of one of Mac's antagonistic comrades from the previous season. Bonus points for them having records. They are arrested for both the rapes and for the "son" having killed a counselor who confronted him about the issue when the daughter informed him of the rape and a new attempt, but the officer shoots him [[KilledOffscreen dead offscreen; all we hear is the gun shot.]]]]

* JustOneLittleMistake: The only mistake the second killer in "Criminal Justice" makes is [[spoiler: he planted the evidence after Hawkes had sprayed for footprints at the scene, and the distribution of chemicals on the evidence alerts the team to the fact the evidence was planted after]]. Otherwise he nearly commits ThePerfectCrime. Which makes sense, because [[spoiler: he's a DA, and has fifteen years of experience with criminals and the crime lab to know how they work]]. Also a case of MurderTheHypotenuse.

Added DiffLines:

* MurderByRemoteControlVehicle: An episode features a SerialKiller whose gimmick is remotely sabotaging computer systems (e.g. changing the ordering system of a restaurant so a victim with an allergy has their meal loaded with allergens and blocking the emergency call). His first kill was a variation of this trope; he hacked the GPS of the victim's (expensive) car so it would take them to a bad part of town, lock up the doors and engine and then [[GiveChaseWithAngryNatives sound the car alarm to lure in crooks]].

** Several to ''Film/TheMatrix'' and ''Series/{{Oz}}'' in an episode that featured Harold Perrineau as an inmate [[spoiler: who's spared from execution when a guard dies. He also killed Sheldon's sister a decade ago, although he wasn't on death row for her murder since it's officially unsolved]] who [[TheAtoner helps Sheldon escape]] when Edward Furlong's character sets off a prison riot (he even gets to say a variation of [[{{Terminator}} "Come with me if you want to live!"]]) while the rest of the Five Man Band uses computerized blueprints on a [[TechnologyPorn touchscreen table]] aid Sheldon.

** "Blood Actually", a set of three short stories, to ''LoveActually'' and ''ValentinesDay'', but unlike the films there's no connections between the characters (unless Sid autopsying the three victims counts).
** Stella is apparently named for [[AStreetcarNamedDesire Stella Kowalski]].

* VehicleRoofBodyDisposal:
** In "American Dreamers", a skeleton is placed on the open upper deck of a doubledecker tour bus.
** In "Hush", Mac and Stella investigate when half of a crushed body is found on top of a shipping container on a truck. The other half is eventually located in a warehouse. It turns out that after the murder, the person who helped the murderer clean up placed the body on top of a shipping container, hoping it would be crushed and look like an accident.
