Great job!

He's really got the timing down with the sunglasses and the hands on the hips thing.

Thanks so much for playing along!

ha ha! I love that you tube video. The one-liner is THE thing to look out for if when watching CSI Miami!

I have to laugh every time I see Mr. Caruso deliver one of his lines. It all sounds so contrived, so programmed. But there's a big audience out there for stuff like this, so...

Small piece of trivia: the executive producer/creator grew up a few blocks away from me. He was quite a bit older than me, but my sister was friends with him.

I LOVE this show. I've never seen that clip. But, I have seen most of the episodes on it! *LOL*

Great job. I'll accept your challenge.

What a Great Job you did with this meme Mary! I Love David Caruso, he is so good with those sunglasses and one liners. His timing is impecible! I used to watch the show alot more than I do now, the gore kinda was getting to me. That goes for alot of those type shows. Every now and then I will sit and watch an episode though. I really enjoyed this...thanks!
Hugs,
Kimmie
