  • A kid finds a gun that was used to kill someone.

    7.5
    In this episode a kid finds a gun and McGee shows us his skills in the forest to try and find the body but it was Dinozzo who found it I thought that the killer would be either the son or daughter but I didn't know who was the killer It was an ok episode and I would say it was average.
  • Meh, it was OK, but not the best episode. An average episode, I think it was just a filler, but still good.

    8.0
    It wasn't the best episode in the series, but it was good for a filler episode.

    The lack of Tiva is causing me to go insane, but the big thing at the end is making me excited.

    I love how McGee's dad was a Marine...it makes him so much cooler now ^.^

    I really like the twist at the end, wasn't expecting it, but I never really expect my hunch during the episode to be right anyway.

    In NCIS, even the filler episodes are good. I also love how Abby acts as team leader in this but nobody listens to her.....

    A filler episode, but still good.moreless
  • (Another Amazing NCIS) Episode! Keep it up, guys!

    10
    This was quite a uniwque episode, and definitely oe that I enojyed a lot! The storyline was quite different from anything we've seen in the past. I also loved tht fact that we got to see another episode with a child, as these seem to be the most interesting!



    There were some great moments in the case. I had a suspicion about the end outcome from the beginning, but I never could've predicted just how this case would work out! It was like a intricately woven work of art!



    Overall, definitely an amazing episode that I would highly recommend! Perhaps not the baest episode, but I still loved it anyway!moreless

  • A great episode. A classic case, brings back memories.

    A great episode. A classic case, brings back memories.



    When a 12-year-old kid's mother finds a loaded weapon in his room, NCIS forensics discover that someone was shot with it. The gun was found next to a dead body, and an adventurous search for a body ensues.



    When the body is found, it turns out to be a Dylan Bates, an infamous bully who has done some terrible things.



    The episode is a great example of TV nostalgia. It was not a filler episode - it was a classic case, with classic evidence, and classic twists and turns.



    So, basically, it was a classic.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • TRIVIA: The game the the kid was playing in the beginning of the show was Battlefield Bad Company.

    • GOOF: In two previous episodes, McGee very famously got terrible cases of Poison Ivy because he was clueless in the woods. This history doesn't jive with his Boy Scout expertise portrayed in this episode.

    • GOOF: It's a bit strange, but in episode 4x15 "Friends and Lovers", McGee is deathly afraid of maggots, but in this episode he is pretty nonchalant about seeing the maggots on ground.

    • GOOF: DiNozzo makes fun of McGee for having been a Boy Scout. He says that it's extremely lame for someone to be part of that no matter what age. Yet in Season One he tells Kate that he himself was in the Boy Scouts and was kicked out for going for "Brownie points."

    • NITPICK: Ellis' mother has been deployed to Yokohama for three months, but when Ziva and Tony go to her house on the base, there are a four or five of newspapers laying around. Wouldn't she have canceled her paper before leaving? The papers did not appear to have been there for a long time, but were recently left, so they weren't leftovers from immediately after she deployed.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Tony: (as he looks at Noah's stash of porn mags) Naked girls and guns. That's what childhood dreams are made of.
      McGee: I'm guessing we experienced very different childhoods.

    • McGee: (when Tony tries to sell him the left handed clubs he bought by mistake) Why would I buy a set of clubs that Ducky could not use?
      Tony: Why?! Oh gee, let me think, I don't know, maybe because if you don't buy them I will tell Ducky that you destroyed his one of a kind, hand crafted, hickory shafted, vintage golf clubs!
      Gibbs: (spotting Ducky behind Tony) I think you just did.
      Ducky: Let's call it even, Timothy. That jazz guitar album that I borrowed from you...
      McGee: My original vinyl of Django Reinhardt's Crazy Rhythms?
      Ducky: Yeah, you were right. It was unique, it was... original.
      McGee: It was autographed! What happened to it?!
      Ducky: Good question. (he leaves)

    • (Abby walks in holding coffee)
      Abby: Gear up!
      (Team looks at her strangely)
      Tony: You're not Gibbs.
      Abby: There's a gun found, Navy base housing.
      McGee: Abby, that doesn't warrant a team call out. A) there are thousands of guns on the Navy base...
      Tony: And B) you're not Gibbs.
      Abby: Okay, what if I told you that the base MPs gave me the gun to test?
      McGee: Doesn't warrant a team call out.
      (team shakes their heads)
      Abby: And the gun was found under a kid's bed, and it was loaded.
      Ziva: Still does not warrant a call out.
      (Abby sips coffee)
      Abby: Ugh. And it was recently fired.
      Team: It's not a call out.
      (Gibbs walks in)
      Gibbs: You heard the lady, gear up.
      (They all get up)
      Abby: They only listen to their master, Gibbs. Only you can crack the whip.
      (hands over Gibbs coffee)
      Abby: Only you can drink this swill.
      Tony: It's just a gun at a Navy base, boss.
      Gibbs: There's brain matter on the barrel, DiNozzo. Somebody shot someone in the head with that weapon.
      Tony: You left that part out Abby.
      (All leave except Abby)
      Abby: That's right people, mush!
      (Abby pretends to crack whip)

    • Ziva: This reminds me of the forests I used to have fun in as a child.
      Tony: Find that hard to believe.
      Ziva: What? That Israel had forests?
      Tony: No, that you had fun as a child.
      (Ziva laughs)
      Ziva: Oh sure, my father used to blindfold us and take us into the middle of the forest, and then we had to find our way out. By ourselves.
      Tony: I stand corrected.

    • Zane: There's Travis' naked woman!
      Tony: Where?!

    • Ziva: I hit a stone wall.
      Tony: Brick wall.
      Ziva: No, it was a stone wall. I backed up too quickly.
