The first one is when Goren and Bishop are in the woods looking at the area where the killer waited and drew his little map. Bishop walked over and very quickly gave the site a cursory look and left. Goren quietly knelt down and studied the drawing in the dirt. Then looked around himself and I think he was imagining what he would have done that night of the killing, putting himself in the killer's body.
The second scene is when they are searching the money room. Bishop quickly enters the bathroom and again a cursory look. Goren quietly assays the room and then finds the window tool. He took his time and was thorough. It paid off. The difference in the investigative style was glaring. Age and experience......or just someone being a better detective. Made me appreciate the team work Goren had with Eames.
Your remarks above and Cassie's got me to thinking about Goren as a teacher. Wouldn't he be a wonderful teacher at the Police Academy? They would learn the importance of studying the details of each case and how the smallest detail can be the key to unlocking the truth. I think he would enjoy it too. He does love to impart his knowledge to others and he is patient, kind, caring and compassionate - qualities that I find honorable in any profession, but especially teaching. But he would probably miss solving real cases. Too bad he couldn't do both. Maybe he could be cloned. Oh God...what a thought. That could lead to another whole thread! ;D
The ideal situation for him would be to teach parttime and then Major Case the rest of the time. Cut back on assigned cases to allow for the teaching assignment.
