GOOF: The suicide note Tony picks up has different line arrangement than the one shown on the computer by McGee.
TRIVIA: McGee types in the sentence "The sly brown fox quickly jumped over the lazy dog..." This sentence is commonly use to practice typing skill due to having every single letter of the alphabet.
TRIVIA: This is the first episode where NCIS gets a credit on the news, as opposed to before when they rarely get a credit.
TRIVIA: Senator Kiley's house is the same set used as Director Shepard's house in seasons four and five.
Tony: It was on the nose.
Ziva: Whose nose?
Tony: On the money, Bull's eye, right as rain. (Ziva looks at him questioningly) You were doing better before you went back to Israel. You've reverted.
Tony: Stayed at Abby's last night, huh? Did you sleep in the same room?
Ziva: It is a one-bedroom apartment.
Tony: One bedroom, one bed? One coffin?
Ziva: You want the truth?
Tony: Yeah, I think I can handle the truth.
Ziva: My building was being fumigated and Abby was kind enough to let me stay over, on the couch, in my pajamas.
Tony: Come on, work with me. Can't you lie just a little bit?
(Discussing the cupcake)
Abby: So, how was it?
McGee: Life changing.
Tony: Ziva, looks like you were wrong about Reed Talbot.
Ziva: He's still a crumb-bag.
Ducky: I can give you a preliminary cause of death.
Ducky: Well, yes, it is rather obvious isn't it? Would you care to venture the time of death?
Gibbs: A little after ten this morning.
Ducky: I'm not feeling very needed.
Abby: You cannot have my cupcake and eat it too.
Gibbs: You're not serious?
Abby: There is a thief amongst us and I'm going to find out who and they're going to be sorry.
Gibbs: Do you think you could pull yourself away from this long enough to focus on the murder?
Abby: She reads her horoscope every day, as do I. Today it said I was going to have a positive encounter with a co-worker. Not going to happen.
Gibbs: Abby what are you doing?
Abby: A boundary has been crossed. I've been violated. Nothing is sacred anymore.
Gibbs: Yeah? Tell me.
Abby: Someone stole my cupcake.
McGee: Director Vance I'll need the password to your voicemail account.
Vance: (writes it) For your eyes only.
McGee: Yes, sir.
Vance: And the messages from my wife, not for your ears.
Ziva: You just love snooping around into other peoples' lives don't you?
Tony: Yeah, that's why I became a cop.
(Tony hold up lace underwear)
Ziva: Tony, what are you doing?
Tony: I'm building a profile of the victim.
Vance: Would have appreciated the heads up before the arrest.
Gibbs: You covered good. Trust. Loyalty. They're important.
Vance: Guess you know all about that after today. How do you think we're going to do in that department?
Abby: McGee I will get your DNA one way or another.
Tony: Do what the woman says. She sleeps in a coffin.
Gibbs: No one leaves here until I get back.
Tony: Okay, now I'm officially curious.
(talking about how they found a gun)
Tony: McGee found it with his butt.
(After Abby opens her present)
Abby: Thank you Ziva, you shouldn't have.
Ziva: I owe you for letting me sleep at your place.
Tony: Slumber party. You two spent the night together.
(Abby and Ziva look at each other and smile)
Tony: What's going on here, McGee?
McGee: Don't know, don't care. None of my business DiNossy.
(Abby rushes away as McGee follows her in want of the cupcake)
Ziva: You are such a control geek.
Ziva: Yes, that too.

When Abby confronts McGee for eating her cupcake she says "Book 'Em Danno." Steven McGarrett often says this quote to Danny Williams when they catch a bad guy in the TV series Hawaii Five-O.
Director Vance (To Gibbs): Do you think is a Catch Me If You Can?
This is a reference to the 2002 movie of Catch Me If You Can, starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. The movie is based on true events about a famous con-artist (Frank Abagnale Jr.) who forged checks and made millions as a Pan Am Pilot, doctor and legal prosecutor all before his 19th birthday.
Ziva: Do you want the truth?
Tony: I think I can handle the truth.
This is a play on words from the movie A Few Good Men when a character played by Jack Nicholson asks a character played by Tom Cruise what he wants and he replies with "you can't handle the truth."
Tony: Officer and a gentle-woman...
Tony is referring to the movie An Officer and a Gentleman from 1982, starring Richard Gere and Debra Winger.
