David Hodges (CSI)

David Hodges is a fictional character on the CBS crime drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, portrayed by Wallace Langham. Hodges has a habit of giving far more information than anyone wants to hear while explaining things and is afraid of germs. Hodges, a lab technician with a B. A. from Williams College, was transferred to the Las Vegas crime lab from the Los Angeles crime lab, where his superiors felt he had an attitude problem. In Las Vegas, Hodges has annoyed his co-workers and superiors, in the season 3 episode, "Play With Fire", he is one of the employees suspected of causing an explosion in the lab where co-worker Greg Sanders was working and, as a result, injured. Despite being accused of causing the explosion by Catherine Willows and Warrick Brown, he vehemently denies responsibility to the point of promising to call his lawyer if taken to case on the incident, he is cleared when it's discovered that Catherine caused the explosion. In the April 9, 2007, edition of TV Guide, Langham described his character as a "pain in the ass" who "kisses up" to his superiors.

Langham said Hodges considers himself superior to the other laboratory technicians and wants to be like Gil Grissom. While Grissom was on a sabbatical during the seventh season, Hodges used an alias to sign up for an online class that Grissom was teaching. Grissom, appears to find Hodges annoying and tells Hodges to report his findings to other CSIs or asks him to leave his office, yet Hodges seems to be under the impression that he's held in much higher regard by the senior CSIs than he is and doesn't note his own character flaws. In "I Like to Watch", Hodges contacts the reality television crew, following the CSI crew while they investigate a case so they can video tape when he gives his report to Sara. While doing this, he uses as many complicated terms as possible, Sara asks if he is all right. At one point during the episode, he sees them filming the DNA lab and says that they should be in his trace lab because DNA is so overrated; these traits become less apparent during season 9, though they are still used for comic relief and he is more portrayed as someone with poor social skills than a genuinely annoying character.

Despite his attitude, Hodges sometimes redeems himself. In the fifth season finale, "Grave Danger", he saves the entire CSI team when he calls them seconds before they are about to open the container that has trapped Nick Stokes and notifies them that Semtex charges are rigged at the bottom. In the seventh season episode "Lab Rats", Hodges persuaded his fellow laboratory technicians to surreptitiously work with him in an attempt to identify The Miniature Killer. Hodges concluded at the end of the episode that bleach might be a common factor linking all four murder scenes. Grissom found Hodges in his office inspecting one of the miniatures and, after Hodges explained his conclusions, praised Hodges for his work. Returning to form, Grissom again asked Hodges to leave his office. During this covert investigation, a phone number, linking the four Miniature Killer victims and previous suspect Ernie Dell, was dialed using Hodges's phone. At the beginning of the eighth season, David Hodges becomes a main cast member.

In the episode "The Case of the Cross-Dressing Carp", he tells Grissom he misses working with him on The Miniature Killer cases. Hodges is known for having an unusually acute sense of smell, is able to identify many chemical compounds by their odor alone. In one case, he was asked to verify if a person's stomach contents had traces of cyanide, which has a smell not unlike bitter almonds, but which requires a specific scent-related gene to be able to discern, which Hodges possesses. Due to a shortage of CSIs at the beginning of season 9 due to Warrick's death, Hodges has been rotated onto the field at least twice—three times overall, counting an appearance on the field in season 8, he is known for his disdain of working on the field. Despite this, he lazily discovered crucial evidence in a matter of seconds during one outing. In "One to Go", Hodges becomes upset upon hearing of Grissom's departure, telling him, "The bad guys will win more if we don't have you," and asking, "Who was Watson without Sherlock Holmes?"

This prompts Grissom to respond, "Watson was a genius in his own right." Because of this, he is unfriendly toward his would-be new colleague, Raymond Langston going so far as to waste Langston's time while making him wait to get trace evidence processed. However on in the episode "The Grave Shift", he does state to Langston that he's impressed after Langston demonstrates the construction and detonation of a cornmeal time-bomb made to kill a victim. At the end of "The Grave Shift", he strides into Grissom's old office—now shared by Nick Stokes, Greg Sanders, Riley Adams—and places Grissom's infamous fetal pig in a jar on one of the shelves, stating that it "belongs here", he leaves without a word. In season 12 episode 4 "Maid Man" he confesses to Catherine that twice he failed to pass the driving test and received a license only the third time. Hodges is an avid fan of the 1970s TV sitcom Three's Company, winning an online auction for a fictional Three's Company board game in the episode "Lab Rats".

He is apparently an aficionado of country-soul singer Willis. In a season 5 episode, "Iced", Hodges is revealed to have a "genetic
