TRIVIA: In Italian version of this episode, during one of young Gibbs' flashback, we can hear an excerpt of Sgt. Hartman's training/running song "Physically" taken from the original Italian version of Full Metal Jacket movie by Kubrick.
Tony: Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo doesn't get scared – I've jumped out of airplanes, deaddropped onto aircraft carriers, and I've killed people, sweetheart – lots of them. I've gotten the plague, I've kissed a transvestite, and been tortured by the best the Middle East has to offer.
Burke: And still – you're shaking!
Osman: You could have killed me.
Gibbs: Coulda, shoulda... didn't.
Osman: You are weak.
Gibbs: (punches him) No. Just better.
Gibbs: People died because of that teacher, marines. What do you think should happen to her?
Flores: Sir, that's not my decision.
Gibbs: Yeah, but you've thought about it, right?
Flores: She should be held accountable for her crimes.
Flores: She should watch those girls change the world in positive ways she never imagined.
Gibbs: That a punishment?
Flores: That's a gift, sir. Punishment is knowing she could have done the same.
Gibbs: You're rare, Flores.
Tony: Oh, no. Definitely something. What?
Burke: You intrigue me.
Tony: Uh-oh. Why?
Burke: When something's broken, I want to fix it.

Tony: (trying to deflect Burke's interest) Telling you would be like Superman telling Lex Luthor about his vulnerability to kryptonite: It ain't gonna happen.
Allusion to comic book, TV and movie hero Superman, who's only known weakness is to kryptonite, a piece of his home world that blocks his superpowers and weakens him. Lex Luthor is one of Superman's all-time arch enemies.
Tony: (talking to God in the chapel) What we have here is a failure to communicate.
A popular quote from the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke. The line is said twice, once by Strother Martin as a prison captain after striking a chain gang prisoner played by Paul Newman. Paul Newman later says the same line, after escaping and finding refuge in a church as he talks to his "Maker" much like Tony is doing here. He delivers the line just as he appears in a church window and is instantly shot to death.
