Fridge: CSI Crime Scene Investigation

Fridge Brilliance
  • The CSI episode "Killer" shows the titular Killer, an otherwise Sympathetic Murderer, a bank robber who kills the former drug addict who ratted him out. He is portrayed somewhat sympathetically (it's noted that he never harmed anyone during a robbery and at the end of the episode he even turns himself in so his wife doesn't lose custody of their daughter). However, at the very end, he cheerfully asks Grissom "So where did I screw up?". Grissom then says, flatly, "You killed two people." This is both Grissom's moral judgment, and is also literally true: he would've gotten away with the crime if he hadn't panicked and committed the second murder. — Luc
