  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Gibbs: What happened on the cliff?
      P.O. Vengal: I told you what happened.
      Gibbs: Your track record for the truth is unimpressive.

    • Tony: Aww, you don't know much about dating, do ya?
      Kate: Huh, why don't you enlighten me?
      Tony: Well, there's always one phony break-up, that proceeds the real break-up. Everyone knows that. (He tweaks Kate's nose.)

    • (Kate prepares to rappel, makes nervous noises)
      Tony: You used to protect the President?
      Gibbs: We've got to check your harness. There, how does that feel?
      Kate: Like I'm about to throw up.

    • Gibbs: Let's pretend we don't know anything.
      Tony: Not much of a stretch.

    • Gibbs: Duck, what are you doing here? It's the middle of the night.
      Ducky: How could I be at home in my warm and comfortable bed knowing my brethren were here, toiling away in the name of national security?
      Gibbs: Couldn't sleep, huh?
      Ducky: Not a wink.
      Gibbs: Neighbors again?
      Ducky: Or, as I like to refer to them, "the Devil's spawn".

    • Kate: Get a search warrant for the servers.
      Gibbs: We don't have time for a warrant. What's a quicker way?
      Kate: Hack into the servers.
      (Gibbs grins)
      Kate: I can't believe I just said that. I would have never suggested that before I started working here.
      Gibbs: You're welcome! Get McGee over here. Have him work with Abby. ...
      Kate: Are you sure we need to do that?
      Gibbs: You have a problem with McGee?
      Kate: Not me.

    • Tony: How was your weekend?
      Kate: Oh, let's see, I paid bills, did laundry, went shopping, vacuumed. I bet you don't even own a vacuum.
      Tony: I lease.

    • Priest: You should come by church sometime. I get a cash bonus for every person past a certain number.
      Kate: (surprised) You do?
      Priest: Wow.
      Kate: I'm sorry. I'm not used to a priest with a sense of humor.

    • Gibbs: Let me rephrase that DiNozzo. You're NOT gonna give me the vitals on that car.

    • Abby: Can't you type any faster?
      McGee: Not unless I grow another hand.
      (Abby leans down and puts her arms around him)
      Abby: Here, let me.

    • Tony: Don't worry Kate. I've got your back.
      Kate: That's what I'm afraid of.

    • Tony: (to Kate) Interesting, how she pegged you for unmarried.

    • Ducky: Ice cream's here.
      Tony: Thank god! I'm starving!
      (Gets a look from Gibbs)
      Tony: I can wait.

    • Tony: They were arguing about something. You know something about that.
      (Gibbs gives Tony a look)
      Tony: Sorry boss.

    • Gibbs: Up to, shoot and sketch.
      Tony: Gee's a long way up.
      Gibbs: DiNozzo, was there something in my tone of voice that made that sound like a suggestion?!
      Tony: On it!

    • Tony: (to Kate) What kind of sick and twisted logic makes you think the boyfriend is always to blame?!

    • (Kate is with Gibbs on the crane)
      Kate: This is going to help us solve the case again because...?
      Tony: It's fun?!

    • Kate: I wish I had a better understanding of this rappelling stuff.
      Tony: I have kind of a crazy idea. (smiles at her)
      Kate: Those are never comforting words coming from you.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Abby gets the white piece of paper with Dave Smith's email address from her computer monitor for McGee, there is a yellow post-it note next to it. This reads: 'Got a lust for life'. It is a song by Iggy Pop.

    • Kate: A priest with a motorcycle? Good idea for a TV show.

      This could be a reference to Dan Aykroyd's short-lived sitcom, Soul-Man, about a minister father raising his kids.
