Summary: Nick remembers something Sara said. Set after the diner scene in Strip Strangler.

Spoilers: Unfriendly Skies, Strip Strangler.

A/N: Just a short little piece. I was watching that episode and it made me think about that.


"Yo, Warrick, got a minute?" Nick asked, exiting the diner.

"Sure, what's on your mind?"

"Well, I was just thinking about something-how lucky we are that Grissom was able to join us after that little, you know..." Nick trailed off.

"Yeah, it sure is lucky you told Catherine where he was or we would probably be at his funeral right now."

"Yeah, I know. Well, I was just thinking about how lucky we really are. Do you remember the conversation we all had a couple of months ago after that man died on the airplane? About being able to take a life?"

"Yeah," Warrick said.

"Well, do you remember everyone's answers?"

"Yeah, why?"

"Well, I remember what Sara said, about not being able to take a life and...I guess if it had been her instead of Catherine...well, I guess it's a good thing we didn't send Sara."
