  • Life Imitates Art: The actress who plays Natalia Boa Vista sister's image was found among the many, many photographs of Serial Killer/The Dating Game contestant Rodney Alcala. Fortunately she wasn't a victim and the story was later Ripped from the Headlines, with her sister in a cameo (also not as a victim).
  • Playing Their Own Twin: Grant Gustin played twins in the episode "Terminal Velocity."
  • Playing Against Type: One episode had Ben Browder play an unhinged wannabe firefighter-turned arsonist.
  • Reality Subtext: Upon being served papers in New York City in the CSI: NY crossover episode "Manhattan Manhunt," Horatio says, "I have a number of memories up here and not all are good. So I apologize." This is a reference to David Caruso's time in NYPD Blue, in which he had a very public spat with series creator Steven Bochco and left after the fourth episode of season 2 on acrimonious terms.
