Gil Grissom : In religion. I believe in God, in science, in Sunday supper. I don't believe in rules that tell me how I should live.
Father Powell : Even if they're handed down by God?
Gil Grissom : How many crusades were fought in the name of God? How many people died because of someone's religion?
Father Powell : Fanaticism, not religion.
Gil Grissom : Semantics. They're still dead.
Father Powell : Light bulb goes out other people fix it, get a new one. Light bulb goes out for the Catholic he stands in the dark says, "What did I do wrong?"

[Grissom looks at the suspect, then looks at the dead body]
Gil Grissom : Yeah, I imagine he does.
Father Powell : Ah. Then you'd have no problem with my talking to him.
Gil Grissom : It's the 11th hour. I wouldn't expect anything less.
Father Powell : Eleventh hour?
Gil Grissom : When the reality of their actions set in, they usually turn to religion.
Father Powell : Can you think of a better time?
