  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (18)

    • McGee: Boss, it's only been like 10 seconds. I know I'm good, but I'm not that good.

    • Tony: What is it, drugs? Jeffrey: Stuff from Iraq. Like from 100,000 years ago. Tony: There were no people then, Jeffrey. Jeffrey: Whatever. It's old.

    • Gibbs: Okay, I'm going to tell you how to handle this. Next time she calls, you give her two words from the bottom of your heart. McGee: Two words. Gibbs: 'Stick it!' McGee: 'Stick it'?! I'm not sure I... (Gibbs hangs up on him)

    • Deputy Secretary of State Elliot: So, you lost the agent who is chained to Jeffrey White? McGee: Well, yes, but... Dep. Sec. State Elliot: Using the transitive property, then, that leads me to the conclusion that NCIS has lost Jeffrey White! McGee: No. Dep. Sec. State Elliot: No? Then you have Jeffrey White in custody? McGee: Well, I... I... It... Dep. Sec. State Elliot: (giving up in disgust) Call me the minute you find him. Or whenever your mouth begins to work again. Whichever comes first.

    • McGee: So where did you finally put the GPS? Abby: I thought about subdermal implantation. McGee: Ah, under the skin. Abby: Yeah, like, maybe in his neck. Tony wouldn't go for it, but I would have loved to have done that. McGee: Didn't consider a suppository? Abby: I thought of it. He balked. McGee: Surprising. Abby: Yeah. I put it in his shoe. Really boring.

    • This isn't the first time Don S. Davis has played a government official. He is most famous for being the head of Stargate Command in the TV series Stargate SG-1. In that show, he was promoted, and now oversees anything Stargate-related. Looks like he was demoted when he came to the Navy.

    Trivia (5)

    • GOOF: When Kate discovers the body of "Lane Harrison", Gibbs says that the throat was slashed to the spine, she then says that "Lane Harrison didn't kill those two guys in Seattle." When earlier, Abby had said there were three murders tied to Lane in Seattle. Further, when Ducky is examining the body, Kate says, "We think that he's responsible for three other murder, same M.O."

    • GOOF: McGee, when talking to the Deputy Secretary of State, names "Lane Danielson" as Jeffrey White's partner, and refers to that same name again to her later. In all other references to this person, intra-team, the name is "Lane Harrison." Two total uses of "Danielson", by McGee; and 5 using "Harrison" by Abby (2), Kate (1), McGee (1) and Gibbs (1).

    • TRIVIA: The chain between the cuffs looks (in the earlier-mentioned trivia submission) about 2 feet long. Jeffrey's right arm is chained to Tony's left arm, but with Tony driving the truck we see at least twice that Jeffrey's right arm is resting on the passenger side window ledge.

    • TRIVIA: When Tony and Jeffrey get to the house trailer they are still in the orange jump suits. Once inside , we see they have changed clothes. They could very well have cut off the jump suits, but it is impossible for two people whose arms are chained together to just put on a shirt. While it does appear that Tony may have cut the sleeves down the seam and is sewing them back together again, but to do that he would have to have cut the seam from the cuff of the sleeve to the armpit and then cut the seam of the shirt from the armpit to the bottom. Quite a job to do twice... by hand.

    • GOOF: After Tony wrecks the truck, Gibbs and Kate show up. Gibbs is talking to the biker while getting in the car. Kate's window is up, and in a flash it's down.

    Allusions (2)

    • Tony compares the situation that him and Jeffery are in to the film The Defiant Ones (1958). In the film, two escaped convicts chained together, one white and one black, must learn to get along in order to elude capture.

    • Abby: He's a regular Mack the Knife, Gibbs. A reference to the character from the Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht work, The Threepenny Opera. Macheath (Mack) is a charming, but fraudulent guy, whose favorite killing method is the knife. The song of the same name was made famous by both Louis Armstrong and Bobby Darin.
