TRIVIA: Before joining NCIS, Tony worked for the Peoria, Philadelphia, and finally Baltimore police departments.
TRIVIA: Gibbs is wearing a Property of Hoover Police Department t-shirt in his basement. This is a department in Hoover, Alabama.
GOOF: Stan asks Gibbs for help while working on board USS Enterprise. When the COD lands on the carrier, it is not CVN 65 - Enterprise, but CVN 74 - John C Stennis. The Stennis is the carrier shown at the start of the season 1 titles. Also while walking through a hangar bay 13 minutes into the episode, an aircraft behind them has the markings of CVN 70 - USS Carl Vinson.
GOOF: When the helicopter is rescuing the crew of the yacht you see the shoulder boards of an officer in the doorway. The shoulder boards have a loop at the top, as used by the Royal Navy.
GOOF: In addition to the shoulder boards, when the shot focuses on the air rescue team retrieving the capsized yachtsmen, on the shoulder of one of the rescuers there is a blatantly obvious Australian flag. Obviously, the HMAS Perth is not part of the USS fleet.
TRIVIA: About 27 minutes in: when Kate and Tony are disagreeing on how to get to 3-79-9-A.. when they are talking to Abby in the scene before, Kate is wearing a red top and green jacket. They exit into the corridor and continue with their bickering (Kate in the same dress mode, she just puts on a jacket) and then they go their seperate ways. However when the scene changes, cutting to Kate walking down another corridor, (turning slightly to avoid a petty officer), she is now wearing the same purple turtle neck that was used earlier (presumably day one). Cut to Tony going up stairs and then back to Kate, still in the purple turtle neck. Cut to Tony 'Skipping' over a knee-knocker, thinking he has got there first. (AT 3-58-9-A) He opens the door, then it is cut to Kate.. now wearing the original red top and green jacket, flashing her credentials to the officer.
(Abby has analyzed the urine samples from the ship's latest drug test.)
Kate: (ending communication) Sorry, Abby, it's just that we've both really got to go.
Abby: What do you want me to do with all this pee?
Lieutenant in charge of urine testing: Someone from security accompanies them to the head and observes casually by mirror.
Kate: And if someone wanted to beat it?
Kate: The system.
Tony: For a crew that doesn't do drugs, you guys sure do a lot of drugs.
Tony: Is this going to turn into one of those guy-girl things where you insist we stop and ask for directions?
Kate: No because unlike you, I actually know where I'm going.
Tony: I say it's time we turn out the lights and play in the dark.
Stan Burley: I was with the agency for two years before he (referring to Gibbs) looked me in the eyes...
Stan: ...three years before he called me by name, and four years before he got it right... by then I'd actually gotten used to Steve. He must really like you.
PO Schrewe: Meth?
Gibbs: Yeah. It's a funny little white powder, cook up in trailer parks. Makes people do funny things, like... freak out on a flight deck with a plane on final approach.
Gibbs: Is that the best you can do, Stan? After working under me five years?
Burley: At least I don't taint evidence when I bag and tag.
Gibbs: I tripped! One time.
Burley: As I remember, it's because you had your eyes glued to some little...
Gibbs: Do you mind if we get back to the tape now?
Tony: Just accept the fact that you're going to get lost.
Kate: Why do you assume I'm going to?
Tony: Because everyone does. Carrier is a big and confusing place first time on board.
Kate: Duly noted.
Gibbs: Numbers are stencilled on the bulkheads. First one tells you the deck level - they're called bull's-eyes.
Kate: Deck level.
Gibbs: Second one, the frame number. Third tells you the compartment's position in relation to the ship's centre line. The last letter tells you what the space is used for.
Tony: Crossing from port to starboard or starboard to port isn't as simple as going straight across.
Gibbs: Sometimes you gotta go up one deck and down another.
Tony: Or down one deck and up another.
Gibbs: Sometimes two.
Tony: It's frustrating.
Gibbs: Not to mention confusing. But you'll get the hang of it...
Tony: ...After you get lost a few times.
Answering Machine: Gibbs. Talk.
Burley: Gibbs, it's Stan Burley. Put down whatever the hell you're doing with that stupid boat and pick up.
Petty Officer (mad because Tony is checking the racks for drugs):You don't understand sir...
Tony: I do understand! Two of your guys are in sick bay with enough meth in their bloodstreams to kill a herd of Navy goats.
Gibbs: The cat launch is like the wire landing, only in reverse. We're gonna go from 0 to 140 knots in a second and a half.
Tony: Kinda like sex without all that work.
Kate: Everything is like sex to you, Tony.
Gibbs: Cross your arms, chin to your chest. Lean forward as far as you can.
Kate: And breathe normally!
Gibbs: How you doin', Kate? Kate? Dinozzo, how's she doing?
Tony: She's smiling...
Burley: You know, it's funny how it's all starting to come back to me now.
Gibbs: What's that?
Burley: The tightness in my chest, the upset stomach, all the pleasantries that come with working for you.
Gibbs: Your breathing's not labored, you're fine.
Kate: It's not the same thing, you know.
Kate: Well, you and Gibbs, Burley and Gibbs.
Tony: I don't know what you're talking about.
Kate: It was a different dynamic, y'know? A different time. You can't compare the relationships.
Tony: Who's comparing?
Kate: All I'm saying is that...things on the surface are not always the same as when you put them in context with the way they actually developed, you know, under the surface, kinda.
Tony: I have no idea what you said.
Kate: Neither do I. But the intent was sincere.
Gibbs: When can I talk with him?
Corpsman: That's hard for me to say, Agent Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well let me make it easier for you, doc. 1500. Consciousness will make the interview go much smoother.
Gibbs: You okay? Good. Just so you know, this isn't like landing in a 747.
Kate: I sort of assumed.
Tony: Five years with Gibbs; I'm amazed the guy didn't end up in a strait jacket.
Gibbs: What was that?
Tony: Nothing, boss. Just praising your communication skills.
