    • Gibbs: When did (Jackie) get the lawyer?
      Vance: Just over nine months ago.
      Gibbs: Right after the attack on NCIS. She had to prepare for life after you.
      Vance: I always thought I would go first. I mean, that's the way it should be.
      Gibbs: Well, should be isn't life.
      Vance: And now here I am. Here you are, Gibbs, in this basement, trying to carve out a new life. Me, I'm--
      Gibbs: You have two beautiful kids who love you and need you to be okay. Leon, you get up every morning, and you put one foot in front of the other. Without her.

    • McGee: Boss, I don't mean to interfere, but is (Vance)?
      Gibbs: He's fine.
      Craig: Doesn't seem all that fine to me. And it kills me to say it, but if he's not fine, he can't be here.
      Gibbs: Well, that's not your call, Director.
      Craig: No, it's not. That would be up to SECNAV Jarvis. Look, Gibbs, for all intents and purposes, he's on your team now. So that means it's your job to protect him and my job to protect you.
      Gibbs: Give him time to figure things out.
      Craig: And if he doesn't?
      Gibbs: He will.
      Craig: Let's hope you're right.

    • Tony: So, is he back for good?
      Gibbs: I don't know.
      Tony: But he's not Director Vance, so he's Agent Vance? Would that make him Probie Vance?
      Gibbs: DiNozzo, enough, okay?

      For all the hype about Vance, he wasn't in the story as much as I thought he would be. It was good to have him back...

    • PetraJelaviMi Feb 15, 2013

      please don't tell me that Vance's wife is alive and she is some kind of spy or something...

    • cuculhain Feb 20, 2013

      she died in the hospital after Vance brought her in with the ambulance, it wasnt faked, she's dead

    • PetraJelaviMi Feb 20, 2013

      I know she died in last episode, but when I read about this episode first thing that I thought was that she actually is alive cause it says that Vance finds out secrets about his wife...

    • Addic7ed Feb 20, 2013

      We know she's dead. But she could have been a spy posing for a housewife. These things happen.

    • Addic7ed Feb 20, 2013

      A sleeper or something? Nice.
