Eric Delko's Best One-Liner From CSI: Miami

In 2002, the series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" expanded to Florida with the release of "CSI: Miami." The newest addition to the world of crime drama and police procedural shows brought with it a new atmosphere and new characters who worked tirelessly to solve some of Miami's most unbelievable crimes.

A show about a team of agents investigating murder cases and apprehending dangerous criminals can sometimes be hard to watch. Still, the characters on the series always have a way to capture the attention of the audience with their intriguing story arcs and subtle quirks that separate them from the grisly work they do.

The cast includes Adam Rodriguez as agent Eric Delko, who always seems to have the perfect lines at the perfect time throughout the entirety of the show. His witty charm brings a lighthearted quality to the series that is sometimes needed after a particularly rough case. However, in one episode, he delivers a near-perfect one-liner that might just be his best in the series.

Delko makes light of a dark situation in Season 2

In Season 2, Episode 6, "Hurricane Anthony," a tropical storm ravages the area leaving chaos and several victims in its wake. Not everything is as it seems, though, and as it turns out, some of the victims weren't victims of the storm at all but something or someone else.

The episode's ending shows several of the agents trying to take it easy and recover from the busy and overwhelming crimes. However, when detective Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter) gets up to leave, she finds a silver lining in the situation. She mentions that it may have been a good thing that a criminal hit someone's car in a hurricane because if he hadn't, they wouldn't have found and apprehended a murderer.

At this, Delko simply chuckles and remarks, "Leave it to you, Calleigh, to find something good to come out of a hurricane." The perfectly timed line not only makes detective Duquesne smile but shines a light on a dark episode. The fact that this line sounds oddly like it could be on an inspirational poster arguably makes it the best Delko one-liner in the series.
