    I enjoyed the episode. It was nice to see Jaleel White playing against type.

    Loved George/Nick in the episode. I love when he works with Sara - their back and forth banter, loved when he was talking to that kid towards the end, when he got between Doc and the husband, and when he had the husband arrested because he assulated Doc.

    It was an awesome episode! Finally got one with Nick and Sara up front, and Brass and Doc were ever present too. Felt like old times. George and Jorja worked really well together. Just proves to me again how much I really don't care for Finn or Morgan. And the chat with the guest stars, writers, and George was great fun! Congrats to him and his wife on the upcoming baby! :)

    I'd watch this episode again. I have to remind myself that George/Nick can't look like the Nick Stokes in season 1 forever. I'd like to think that his Castro look was for shooting some film somewhere and that he didn't have time to shave. (Congrats on the new baby, George!) I enjoyed his time here throughout, and thumbs up for having that a-hole arrested for assaulting the good Doc Robbins. I also like his time with Sara, too. Lots of Nick, Sara, Doc, and Jim throughout. This is definitely different from that other episode, Unfriendly Skies, which I would watch again, mainly just to hear Grissom's epic speech about the dead passenger in the end.

    Jaleel White's such a treat to watch, I love him in Psych about Gus's a cappella group. And I love the victim's yellow bag. I can't let the nerve of some flight attendant carry my carry on farther from my plane seat, I can do it my damned self. I like the new take on stealing from other passengers on a plane while they sleep. It's beyond the old, tired pickpocketing people from the streets or the trains, so this is something new to me.

    A good 9.0 out of 10 episode to me.

    I think my favorite scene was when Nick was messing with the kid in the police station.

    I also loved seeing Nick and Sara in the beginning of the episode. Nick picking on Sara's physics background

    And congrats to George and Monika on the upcoming arrival. He's going to be an awesome dad.

    I agree. Great episode.

    Felt like old school CSI. The 'bantering' between Nick and Sara. The writers actually got how they've always been with each other. :)

    I loved all the scenes mentioned here. George tweeted that te scene between him and Sara was ad-libbed a lot. Shows how working together so long and the actors KNOWING their characters, better than these writers do, that the writers should listen to them. ;)

    George, also, tweeted that the scene between him and the stone kid was made up a lot too.

    Which begs the question, why was George really suspended. Still think it was the argument between him and CM.

    It was so nice to see the old crew front and center with this episode. And Morgan barely in it, finally!!!!

    And congrats to George and his wife on the little one that is on the way. George will be a great dad. :)

    I think it was more of to show they are 'protecting' the writer than anything. She could easily cry foul or something and make some stuff up.
