I went full Gil Grissom on this case... (22.29)

Chuck: Although it's lovely to see you, Bryan, there was no need to come in from your Rumspringa.

Much as I dig getting my Amish on with Dake, I did have to come. José Lugo. You can't prosecute this one, Chuck. I went full Gil Grissom on this case, and there was no way to charge the kid with murder.

Chuck: Body of a prison guard would indicate otherwise.

Rumspringa is a rite of passage during adolescence, translated in English as "jumping/hopping around", used in some Amish and Mennonite communities. The Amish, a subsect of the Anabaptist Christian movement, intentionally segregate themselves from other communities as a part of their faith. For Amish youth, the Rumspringa normally begins around the age of 14 to 16 and ends when a youth chooses baptism within the Amish church, or instead leaves the community.

Not all Amish use this term (it does not occur in John A. Hostetler's extended discussion of adolescence among the Amish), but in sects that do, Amish elders generally view it as a time for courtship and finding a spouse. A popular view exists by which the period is institutionalized as a rite of passage, and the usual behavioral restrictions are relaxed, so that Amish youth can acquire some experience and knowledge of the non-Amish world.

Gilbert Arthur Grissom (born August 17, 1956), Ph.D. is a fictional character on the CBS crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, portrayed by William Petersen. Grissom is a forensic entomologist and, for the series' first nine seasons, a CSI Level III Supervisor employed by the Las Vegas Police Department. He appeared in 198 episodes, and was replaced by Laurence Fishburne and, later, Ted Danson.
