Death is no laughing matter.

According to CSI Files sources, episode 13 of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will be called "A Thousand Days on Earth". The final episode aired before the writers' strike was the eleventh for the season, so episode 12 remains a mystery at this point. "A Thousand Days on Earth" begins in a comedy club. It's an intimate little place off of the strip, and Adam Spence is performing in front of a crowd. He laughs at his jokes right along with them.

Things get a bit more complicated when he jokes about abortion and one of the audience members gets offended. Adam can't see him through the glare of the spotlight, but he continues to make light of the situation, joking around with the man and getting the rest of the audience to laugh again. The man gets up and drags the woman next to him out of the club. Before he exits, the man turns to hold his hand in the semblance of a gun, pointing it at Adam. Adam pretends to be frightened but clearly doesn't feel threatened.

After the show, Adam goes out behind the club to find his car in the dark parking lot. He calls his wife as he walks, asking her if their children are doing well and telling her to give them a kiss for him, saying that he will be home in 15 minutes. After he hangs up, he looks for his car and can't seem to find it. A car suddenly speeds toward him and he has to jump out of the way to avoid being hit. The car stops and backs up, the window rolling down as a man inside identifies Adam as the man they're looking for.

Instead of attacking him, the man tells Adam that it was a great show, and Adam thanks him, making sure to toss a lighthearted insult at the man before the car drives off, swerving because the driver is clearly intoxicated. Adam wants to find his car--he's starting to feel on edge. He turns around and jumps when he sees a figure standing there.

The man standing next to Adam asks if he's okay after nearly being plowed down by the car full of idiots. Adam says he'll be fine and watches the man walk away. Now he really wants to find his car because this isn't feeling quite so funny anymore. He hits the panic button on his car alarm and nearly jumps out of his skin when the lights and sounds erupt very close to where he's standing. Feeling like an idiot, Adam starts to get in his car--until he sees a box on the ground at the edge of the parking lot, which is being lit by the flashing lights of his car. He goes to look inside and is mortified at what he sees: the body of a three year old little girl, laid out as though in a coffin.

Brass does a press conference, trying to find out who the little girl is. Meanwhile, the team analyzes the box her body was found in. It's a microwave box, and the barcode leads them to the microwave's owner: Nora O'Toole, a bubbly and talkative girl who lives with her fiancÚ Dean. Dean says that he must have thrown the microwave box out with the trash. He gestures to the empty dumpster outside of the window and says that it must have been taken away already. The team will have to find something else on the box that can help them find their killer.
