TRIVIA: At the beginning of the show, mail is being delivered to Gibbs. We see the address and what appears to be a faux zip code (12345). However, the zip code is real, and the location is Schenectady, New York.
GOOF: While Ryan is speaking with Gibbs from the bar, the lever of the pay phone's hook is in the down position.
TRIVIA: When Gibbs returns home and talks to Colonel Ryan in his basement, he's wearing a t-shirt reading "NIS". This is an acronym for "Naval Investigative Service", the predecessor of NCIS, which was restructured out of the old NIS in 1992.
TRIVIA: The episode includes the first meeting between Gibbs and Fornell in Gibbs' 'private office', the elevator with the emergency switch thrown. It's also the first time Gibbs and Fornell are shown to be on a first name basis with each other, at least in private.
Rule #12 - Never date a coworker.
Abby: He's kind of cute.
Tony: So, you're into older guys, Abby?
Abby: Sure, dating older is a sign of maturity.
Tony: Well, what's the oldest you've gone?
Abby: Sixty-five, my biology professor. You?
Tony: Twenty-six, my dry cleaner.
Abby: Haha. I rest my case.
Ducky: You have a remarkable set of teeth.
Tony: Yeah, for an extra from Pirates of the Carribbean.
Ducky: I hear that was really good.
Gibbs: The ride?
Fornell: (to Gibbs) Much as I'd like to, I'm not going to let him shoot you Gibbs.
Ducky: I don't suppose any of you thought to take a photo before you ran screaming from the cabin.
Tony: Hey. That was not screaming. That was yelling. Loudly.
Ducky: Sorry we took so long. Gerald got us lost. Several times.
Gerald: Me? You had the map.
Gibbs: Tobias. You lied to me.
Fornell: Don't take it personally. I'd lie to my own mother if I thought it'd help solve a case.
Fornell: If you screw me on this...
Gibbs: I'll consider it a bonus.
Tony: Today, Abbs!
Abby: That's very Gibbs of you, Tony.
Tony: Thanks, I've been practicing.
FBI Agent: I feel sorry for your boss.
Kate: Why's that?
FBI Agent: You obvious don't know Fornell very well.
Kate: We've worked with him before.
Tony: We just don't particularly like him.
FBI Agent: So then you do know him.
Gibbs: Tony, touch my cell phone again and I'll break your fingers.
Kate: You know he really does like you.
Tony: (Gibbs stays behind Tony) He is right behind me, isn't he?
Tony: You wanna make me open that, boss?
Kate: Gibbs thinks he saw a bomb.
Gibbs: What do you mean, 'thought?!'
Kate: Do I really have to say it?
Gibbs: Say, what?!
Ducky: Yes, Kate. Say what?
Kate: You need glasses, Gibbs! There, are you happy?!
Gibbs: I'm sorry, I didn't quite catch that last part.
Colonel Ryan: You set me up!
Gibbs: Then why are they shooting at me?
Fornell: Just because you're paraniod, doesn't mean people aren't out to get you.
Tony: Where the hell are you, Fornell's here with a warrant for your arrest.
Gibbs: Well, it's a good thing I'm not there, then.
Tony: This is serious, he thinks you're with Colonel Ryan.
Gibbs: Well, he's smarter than he looks.
Kate: Do all Marines build boats?
Tony: Just the ones that have been married a few times.
Kate: Why's that?
Tony: The other ones can afford to buy one.
Abby: I just realized something.
Tony: Gibbs never gives me any compliments?
Abby: No. Maybe it's not that you're dating younger women, but that they're dating an older man.
Kate: So what happened?
Tony: She broke into my apartment and filled my closet with dog crap.
Kate: Ha! Really? I knew there was a reason I liked her.
Tony: I still have her number. Maybe you two can get together and boil rabbits or something.
Kate: Not my style, Tony. I would just shoot you.
Gibbs: And that would be the reason for rule number twelve.
Kate: Rule twelve?
Gibbs: Never date a co-worker.
FBI Agent: You're under arrest.
Gibbs: For what?
FBI Agent: Pissing off the F.B.I.
Gibbs: Get used to it.

Prolific character actor Terry O'Quinn had an important recurring role as Admiral Boone on JAG, who is also a mentor to the series' male lead.
Tony: Maybe you two could get together and boil rabbits or something.
He's referring to his ex-girlfriend's revenge on him, but this is a clear reference and allusion to the famous scene from the film Fatal Attraction, in which spurned lover Glenn Close puts the family rabbit into a pan of boiling water. It also led to the coining of the phrase "bunny boiler" for a woman who takes revenge on an ex partner.
Terry O'Quinn's character, Colonel Ryan, tells Gibbs to Trust No One; this is one of the many quotes associated with X-Files, in which Terry O'Quinn had a couple of guest appearances.
