  • Quotes

    • Ziva: Orli was the reason my parents split up. I did not say anything, because I did not think it mattered.
      Tony: Did it?
      Ziva: She was a young officer. And my father was weak. And then it just ended. And I always just told myself that that was just another rule she broke in order to advance her career. But now I think she was here for the same reason I went to Berlin. Because maybe she loved my father. You know, I keep thinking if it was not for Orli, things would have been different. I would be a different person.
      Tony: Then I should catch her before she leaves. (holds her hand) You know and thank her.

    • Yaniv: You would do anything for your family even if they had done wrong, would you not?
      Ziva: (referring to his Brother Ilan Bodnar) You wrote him off. You had not spoken in years. I do not understand this loyalty.
      Yaniv: It never leaves us, does it, Ziva?

    • Tony: I always knew you were the type.
      Ziva: I'm many things, Tony. A type... not one of them.
      Tony: Oh, yes you are. You are the type who likes to hang up her man's clothes for the night.
      Ziva: (laughs) When I have a man the favors I offer have little to do with clothes.
      Tony: That's good to know.

    • Bodnar: You know explanations will require time that we do not have.
      Ziva: We can make the time.
      Bodnar: Perhaps, in a few days. Nothing will make me happier. For now, take my word for it. Nothing is entirely as it seems. I wish things were different, Ziva.
      Ziva: Thanks to you, they're not, Ilan.
      Bodnar: Please forgive me and walk away. Vendettas lead to nothing but heartache.
      Ziva: The only heartache I have, Ilan, is from ever trusting you at all.
      Bodnar: Well, then I will regret that for the rest of my life. Goodbye, Ziva.

    • Orli: Wait, CIA and Interpol are already in Italy, I have a team there also. I could put you in touch, if you wish.
      Ziva: That will not be necessary. (walks away)
      Orli: Her independence lights up the room. (to Gibbs) You molded her well.
      Gibbs: She came that way.
