TRIVIA: The magazine that Gibbs picks up when he and Jenny are waiting at the newsstand is called "Bridal Guide". When Jenny says "You've got to be kidding me" and Gibbs replies, "Old habit," he is referring to his previous four marriages.
TRIVIA: The frequent references to Ari are referring to a terrorist first seen in the season one episode "Béte Noire," and he made a few more appearances following that episode until he killed an NCIS agent in episode 2x23 "Twilight." In this episode, they are referring to Gibbs' revenge mission in episodes 3x01 "Kill Ari 1" and 3x02 "Kill Ari 2," which resulted in Ari's death.
Jenny: Webster woke up one day and realized he'd sold his soul to the devil.
Tony: Too bad the devil doesn't give refunds.
Jenny: I hear Gitmo is lovely this time of year. Only you'll be wearing a hood.
Gibbs: That'll kill your view.
Tony: (strapping on a bullet-proof vest) I could have used one of these last night.
Helen: (to Jeanne) Speaking of intestinal parasites, how is your father?
Tony: Well, this guy was either practicing for his plastic surgery finals...
Ziva: ...or injured.
Tony: Hey, what are you wearing?
Tony: Ooo, scrubs can be sexy!
Jeanne: (laughing) You have sex on the brain!
McGee: If it's about the case, we're all ears.
Ziva: Is that like being a fly on the wall?
McGee: Ever seen anyone walk that fast in heels?
Tony: Only at the end of a really hairy date.
(Gibbs picks up a Wedding Magazine)
Jenny: You've got to be kidding me.
Gibbs: Old habit.
Abby: Actually, it's what I found in the director's car that I'm not too sure what to do with.
Tony: What did you find?
Abby: (reaches into her pocket and pulls out some undergarments in an evidence bag) They were in her glove compartment.
Tony: What's that doing in her glove compartment?
Abby: I don't know! But I'm sure the director doesn't want her um, personal business on an inventory log, for the entire federal government to read!
Ziva: Not this personal business!
Abby: And I can't take it off the log, it would be a crime!
McGee: Maybe you should ask the director what to do...
Abby: I am not having that conversation! (she turns and faces Tony) But you could!
Tony: She (Jenny) get one of Le Grenouille's men?
McGee: ...through a tinted window...
Ziva: ...in a car going 40 miles per hour.
Tony: Rock on Jenny!
Fornell: So you wanna tell me this is all about, 'cause they didn't tell me squat.
Jenny: I need face time with one of their undercover assets.
Jenny: Trent Kort; alias.
Fornell: They're gonna want to know why.
Jenny: On-going NCIS investigation.
Fornell: Thats it?
Jenny: One of my informants was killed. I believe Kort has information to help me find the killer.
Fornell: That sounds reasonable; on the other hand, this is the CIA, so they're probably just going to tell me to tell you to go to hell.
Jenny: We were expecting someone from the CIA, not FBI.
Fornell: As you know I am an attachment to Homeland Security-
Gibbs: That doesn't make you CIA.
Fornell: Yet here I am just the same! (he smiles)
(Fornell walks into Jen's office)
Jenny: Agent Fornell...
Fornell: Jenny; Jethro.
Gibbs: Get lost on your way to work?
Ducky: Thus reinforcing the spy world's oldest maxim-
Gibbs: Don't be a spy?
Ducky: Trust no one.
Ducky: Who needs proof, when accusation will suffice?
Gibbs: How far are you willing to get this guy Jen?
Jenny: As far as you went to get Ari, Jethro.
Tony: He's good.
McGee: He's really good.
Gibbs: He better be.
Tony: Guy looks like an English teacher.
McGee: Actually, an art teacher.
McGee: (He uses his camera to peer into the window) Huh, not so bad.
Ziva: The bigger they are, the louder they fall, McGee.
Tony: The harder they fall, Ziva.
Jenny: Perhaps it's clouding your judgment.
Ducky: Perhaps it's not my judgment that's being clouded.
Fornell: That sounds reasonable. On the other hand, this is the CIA, so they're probably going to tell me to tell you to go to hell.
Jenny: Remind them they owe us. And if you want to know why, ask them.
Jeanne: Well I figured a guy like you would be used to doing that.
Tony: Uh, I never got that far.
Jeanne: Ah, well there's a first time for everything.
Jenny: Langley hates the FBI...
Fornell: Yeah, but not as much as they hate you right now. You really pissed them off over something.
Jenny: And you volunteered to smooth things out.
Fornell: Not exactly volunteered. I just drew the short straw.
Trent Kort: Grenouille must have had his own plans for Webster. Sap's probably better off dead. One thing Grenouille's good at is ruining people's lives.
Jeanne: I promise I'll make it worth your while.
Tony: Bribery will get you everywhere.
Gibbs: Directer of NCIS.
Gibbs: That's a job I wouldn't want.
Jenny: Don't worry, no one's offering.
Gibbs: You know why?
Jenny: You mean besides your impatience, total lack of respect to authority, and the fact that you still haven't learned how to play nice with others?
Gibbs Yea, yea, besides all that.
Ducky: Well you don't need a degree in psychology to see that there's a history between the two. Something that is consuming her every action, every thought.
Tony: I sure would like to be a fly on the wall up there. (Ziva gives him a confused, weird look) Never mind.
Tony: You, ah, got off a few rounds.
Jenny: I don't take kindly to being shot at.
Gibbs: How far?
Ducky: Will she go? As far as any obsessed person. As far as it takes.
