  • Pretty much a case centered episode. With some team interaction humor thrown in.

  • Quotes (12)

    • McGee: We're trying to make a connection between Jennings and his killer. Ziva: Brandon Sykes, but we've hit a dead end. Tony: No pun intended. Ziva: Actually, it was. Tony: Oh. In that case, nicely done.

    • Kevin: (as he's being arrested) This is insane! Tony: Unbelievably insane. And you are a psychopath! You've just leapfrogged to the top of our 'Psychopath of the Year' list.

    • Tony: (as Gibbs interrogates Capt. Jennings' maid) It's like I said, it's always the maid. Ziva: No, you have always said it's the janitor, or the butler, or anyone assigned to work in Abby's lab. But you have never once said, 'maid'! Tony: Anyone ever tell you your memory can be a real buzz kill?

    • Tony: (to Jessica, Dr Daniels' assistant) So, what's a nice girl like you doing at a top secret, government counter-espionage gadget lab like this? Jessica: Bet that sounded better in your head. Tony: No, not really.

    • Ducky: Reminiscence of a rather dark period in English history. Did you know that the preferred method of punishment for treason was to be hanged, drawn and quartered? They would hang victims by the neck and they were taken from the scaffold before they could have the freedom of death and disemboweled. Just like this chap. Except unlike him they would hack them into four quarters and drag them through the streets, their heads stuck on pikestaffs. Ziva: Nice story, Ducky. Ducky: Well, I did say it was dark. And thankfully ancient history. Gibbs: Not so ancient, Duck.

    • Featured Music: "Bye Bye Love" by The Everly Brothers plays in the teaser as the Captain is driving. "Peppermint and Glue" by Sharon Little is playing inside the bar.

    • Rocky Carroll is credited but doesn't appear.

    Trivia (4)

    • GOOF: The blow to the dead Captain's head is on the rear left quadrant of his skull, but in the teaser the Captain turned and faced his attacker before the blow was struck, so it's unlikely an attack would have landed on the back of his head.

    • TRIVIA: McGee says that he was 12 at Christmas in 1989, which would mean he was born in 1977 and at present is either 31 or 32 years old.

    • GOOF: McGee says he was able to use Jennings' emails to ID the NIC address on the recipient's computer. The generally accepted term is MAC address, not NIC address. It is not possible to determine the MAC address of a NIC on the recipient's computer from an email. Could McGee have been confused and meant IP address? This does not sound like an error he would make.

    • GOOF: At the start of the episode, Tony is struggling with a Fatal Exception 0E error, also known as a BSOD. The error flashes and makes noise, which is atypical of Fatal Exception errors. McGee is able to resolve the error by pressing the "F Mode" key, which is used for controlling the behaviour of function keys on Tony's Logitech Media Keyboard and would not have any effect on a Fatal Exception error. Furthermore, McGee is looking at the left screen when he presses the key when the error is showing on the right flat screen.

    Allusions (4)

    • Tony: (Talking about McGee's new girlfriend whom he has never met in real life) You don't know who these people are. It could be a 45 year-old overweight man in Minnesota. This could be a reference to episode 2x09 "Forced Entry", in which Tony starts dating a person he thinks is a girl with the screen name "Hotjugs24". At the end of the episode, McGee traces the screen name and finds it belongs to a person that fits very nicely with the description Tony gave him in this episode.

    • Tony: Hackers? Very young Angelina Jolie. I liked.
      Tony is referring to the movie Hackers from 1995, with Jonny Lee Miller and only 20-year-old Angelina Jolie. In this movie a group of young Hackers unite to fight against an evil computer genius while being chased by the FBI.

    • Tony: Ever see Fatal attraction? Fatal Attraction is a 1989 psychological thriller starring Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer. It is a story of a successful lawyer whose weekend of passion results in his lover stalking him and his family.

    • The "Beary Smiles" talking bear shown in this episode bears striking similarity in both appearance and function to real life 1985 hit childrens toy, Teddy Ruxpin.
