I "emptied" my trash, which contained the word document of a file and unfortunately now all i have is the PDF version and I don't want to recreate the entire document.  Any solutions to bring it back? I saw them do it on CSI one time!

With absolutely no guarantees you may find data retrieval software that may allow you to get the document back.  You would have to stop using your MBP imediatly so that the document is not overwritten (which it already may be).  No freebies in this department.
If this is worth big bucks to you, you can employ a data recovery firm that also with no guarantees may be able to recover it.
Time Machine alleviates all such problems.
