GOOF: In the last frame of the show, we see Gibbs grabbing for the light switch to shut it off. However, when he makes the "Pulling" action, not only is the light still on, but you can see that he never makes contact with the switch.
TRIVIA: When Laura Rowens serves coffee to Gibbs in her kitchen, the coffee cups have the words "Navy Federal" on them. Navy Federal Credit Union serves Navy and Marine personnel and their dependents, and offers a full range of financial services.
TRIVIA: Harriet Margulies, who is the audience liaison for both Don Bellisario and NCIS, is seen playing a phone operator at Scarlet Secret.
TRIVIA: While McGee and Gibbs are waiting on the street after interviewing a witness, the NCIS van is hit by a football thrown by two boys. Gibbs picks up the ball and throws it back to them, resulting in a rather long pass. The actor who plays Gibbs, Mark Harmon, attended Los Angeles Pierce College as a student and quarterback. He then transferred to UCLA and was the starting quarterback for the UCLA Bruins in 1972 and 1973. He was also awarded the National Football Foundation Award for All-Round Excellence in 1973. Harmon was also born to College Football All-American University of Michigan football legend and Heisman Trophy winner Tom Harmon.
Rule #23 - Never mess with a Marine's coffee if you want to live. (recited in a conversation between McGee, Kate and Tony with the participation of a couple of Marines standing guard.)
GOOF: In the last scene, when McGee shows Tony the photo of Tony's cybergirlfriend, the photo is a vertical layout, but when shown in close-up, it is horizontal.
Gibbs: I need to know who hired Grotinski to create the email trail between Rowens and Davidson.
McGee: Well, there's about 150 gigabytes of data on several hard drives.
Gibbs: Only 150? Hell, that shouldn't take much time at all. (Gibbs leaves)
McGee: (turns to Abby) He has no idea what a gigabyte is, does he, Abby?
Abby: I don't think he knows what hard drive is, McGee.
Abby: I have to talk to Gibbs.
McGee: You're gonna have to wait 'cause the last time I disturbed him in interrogation was the last time.
Abby: Hey McGee. Ready to plunge into the seedy side of the Internet with me?
McGee: Well, I thought we agreed never to discuss that at work.
Abby: McGee, I'm talking about the case.
Kate: He does have experience with cybersex.
Gibbs: Yeah? That true DiNozzo?
Tony: I think what Kate meant to say was that I met a very nice girl online once.
Gibbs: Yeah. What was her name?
Tony: Names aren't that important... 'Hotjugs24'. But I think she meant it as a metaphor.
Kate: Now why would somebody hide a camcorder in a vent?
Tony: You're kidding, right? Oh, ya know, when this is over we really need to talk, Kate. You're scaring me.
Abby: Care to guess which fetish they have in common Kate?
Kate: No, no, I'm going to hell just listening to all this.
Kate: This house is sorta how I always pictured Tony's place.
Gibbs: Yeah except DiNozzo has better furniture.
Kate: I hate hospitals.
Tony: Maybe we'll get lucky, and he's dead.
Laura: (about McGee) Is he old enough to be an NCIS agent?
Gibbs: I ask myself that every day.
Kate: We think Laura Rowans is having an online affair with Jeremy Davidson.
Abby: Really, I could have told her....internet romances never work out.
Tony: They all end in attempted murder.
Abby: Only the really hot ones Tony.
Kate: (after Tony tricks McGee into drinking Gibbs' coffee) Maybe next time you should remember rule 23.
Tony: Is that the one about not marrying a woman who eats more than you?
MP: Never mess with a Marine's coffee if you want to live.
Mrs. Rowans: It was just a game.
Gibbs: Does this feel like a game, Mrs. Rowans?
Kate: I had to wear a skirt today.
Tony: D'you say something?
Kate: Y'know, you realize what would happen if I dropped this knife, Tony?
Tony: Yup. I'm still deciding whether it's worth it or not.
Abby: We're talking cleaner than clean, whiter than white! You put him in a lineup with snow, Snow is going to Jail!
Gibbs: Or it just means he was never caught.
Abby: Or it just means he was never caught.
Michelle Davison: (after being challenged by Gibbs/Kate saying NCIS) NCI What?
Tony: I gotta get one of these.
Tony: I'm talking plasma screen Kate.
Kate: 12 years of catholic school says that ain't gonna happen.
Tony: You still have the pleated skirt?
Tony: What was that tip I picked up in Baltimore? (he slaps his forehead while saying this) Right on the tip (touches his tongue). Oh yeah. Rapists are liars, Kate.
Tony: It's in our blood, we're passionate.
Kate: The only thing running through your blood Tony is cholesterol....and possibly chlamydia.
Tony: It's curable.
Kate: (seeing a sexy picture of Mrs. Rowens on Davison's computer) She had to have sent him that.
Gibbs: Yeah, how do you figure that?
Kate: Well let's say theoretically I had a picture like this. I wouldn't be handing them out on a street corner.
Tony: I dated a woman who used to wear my police uniform and make me call her Detective Sipowitz.
Kate: What the hell is wrong with you?
Tony: It wasn't my idea... well the uniform was.
Abby: You think he did it?
Gibbs: Kind of depends on your definition of it.
Abby: Spoken like a true politician Gibbs!
Kate: Got big plans today, Tony?
Tony: Well, it is Saturday, Kate, what do you think?
Kate: Oh, you have a date with a girl who can't spell her last name?
Tony: Ha Ha.
Kate: First name?
Tony: Wow, Laura Rowan wrote these.
Tony: Ok, Abby, I'll of course need copies of all of them.
Gibbs: (after he hands Tony his coffee) You drink that DiNozzo, and you're dead.
Gibbs: Whoa what?
Kate: Whoa...it's..it's uh.. pretty specific...Gibbs.
Kate: By specific I mean explicit. In a truest most pornographic sense of the word.
Gibbs: Yeah, I'd say thats specific Kate, bag it.
Gibbs: Hey Kate, your brothers really like that?
Kate: Sadly, yes.
Gibbs: Huh, explains a lot.
Tony: So, you wanna drag her in here and accuse her of attempted murder McGee.
McGee: No, I didn't say that.
Tony: No let's do it, it's not like she hasn't been through enough crap already.
McGee: Well, you would know, you're the master at giving it.
Tony: Watch your lip, Probie.
Tony: ....Your quivering lip.
Kate: Hey! My God, I swear the two of you are worse than my brothers, and they're practically psychotic. We have to ID this guy, if we find a connection between the two of them we bring Laura Rowans in for questioning. Agreed?
Tony: We'll come back. Agent Todd, make sure the MP guarding him doesn't screw up the DD932A6 form like he did last time. If he does it's your ass. Clear?
Tony: Crystal what?
Tony: Better, now get moving, I don't have all day.
Abby: Did you know?
Abby: If I find out that you knew, I'll kill you.
Tony: (on phone to nurse) We'll be there in fifteen minutes.
(Gibbs pushes down on the pedal)
Tony: Make that ten.
