    Trivia (5)

    • GOOF: When the team finds the body with the Potomac view in the background, the shadows are wrong. The shadows inside the building are not all in the same direction indicating a closer light source than the Sun.

    • TRIVIA: Ducky tells Tony that when Ziva had been sent back to Israel, she was almost killed on an undercover assignment in Morocco.

    • TRIVIA: Gibbs is old friends with Special Agent Callen, and they had worked together in Serbia.

    • TRIVIA: Callen starts speaking in Russian so that a neighbor from St Petersburg who hears him will think he's Russian mafia. If so, it will be as an American contact, because his Russian accent was terrible.

    • GOOF: When Tony dials the phone (in the scene just after Gibbs' meeting with Abby) the touch-tones that we hear are "1234567", however these are not the numbers Tony dialed. This is evident as the "1" button is visible as he dials the first number.
