The Funniest Moment In CSI Season 4

For numerous years, "CSI" was one of the most popular police procedurals on the air. The team uses whatever evidence they have at their disposal to solve murders, as the characters frequently find themselves within precarious situations themselves. With such an eclectic team of characters, it's no wonder audiences tuned in week after week to see what crime needed solving next. 

Seeing as how the show dealt with grisly murders on a regular basis, it should come as no surprise to hear that the show wasn't necessarily known for being a barrel of laughs all the time. After all, crime scenes aren't exactly known for the humor they inspire. However, a little gallows humor never hurt anyone, and since the characters had to find some way to deal with all of the gruesomeness they saw, every so often, they'd crack a joke, including one gem out of the Season 4 episode, "Suckers."

Nick's deadpan delivery was a highlight of Suckers

On the surface, Season 4's "Suckers" seems like a fairly standard "CSI" episode. The team's called to investigate a crime scene where an antique Japanese sword has been stolen. Meanwhile, the detectives are also tasked with solving the death of a teenage girl who got herself involved with a vampire cult. In other words, just an average Tuesday in the world of "CSI."

However, "Suckers" has a bit more humor than your average "CSI" outing. The best joke of the whole episode, and perhaps the entire season, comes when Nick (George Eads) believes he's accidentally damaged a priceless sword. He calmly asks, "How's our insurance?" The gang normally spends its time around dead bodies instead of priceless artifacts, so it's understandable they wouldn't exactly be on their A-game surrounded by a bunch of valuable pieces. Of course, the bit's only made funnier when Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) says, "You are in so much trouble."
