GOOF: At the beginning of the episode, Tony states that he has used up the whole of his phone battery, trying to find out what happened to his car, yet he is seen using it several times, throughout the episode.
TRIVIA: The car that was named by McGee "Probie" was an "84 Camaro Z-28 5 speed."
GOOF: Look closely as Abby exits the elevator to pick up Kate for their Spa appointment. Gibbs has a phone to his ear, it cuts to Abby then back to Gibbs, who no longer has a phone.
TRIVIA: In the closed captioning, "ki" is mis-spelled as "chi." Both mean the exact same thing, but "ki" is Japanese while "chi" is Chinese.
Coleman: Why are you sticking your neck out for this guy?
Gibbs: Several marines witnessed Petty Officer Dobbs saving lives. No one witnessed him taking one.
Abby: The lock is almost virgin... it's barely been opened.
Palmer: Sorry about your weekend.
Palmer: Yeah, mass email. The sender was "anonymous" but it was pretty obvious...
(about the mass spectrometer)
Abby: There's a certain MIT grad that's supposed to be fixing it but he's actually making it worse.
Gibbs: Sooner than later, McGee!
(McGee throws down his tools in exasperation)
McGee: Why don't you just hire a service tech?
Abby: Well, I would, McGee, but it's Sunday. (bows her head in prayer)
Gibbs: Are you here for a reason Abbs?
Abby: I wanna talk dirt.
Tony: (to McGee) A long shot is you getting laid by Penelope Cruz.
(Gibbs glances at Abby's outfit, stunned.)
Abby: I was at church Gibbs.
Palmer: (watching Abby try to work the kinks out of her neck) You know the inefficient flow of chi is a major source of stiffness. (Abby looks at him, interested) Oh, a silent auction item at my niece's school benefit. A weekend seminar in the art of shiatsu.
Abby: Do me.
Palmer: Uh, no, I showed up late.
Abby: Your hands, my body now.
(Palmer massages Abby, Tony walks in and slaps him upside the head)
Tony: What the hell are you doing, Palmer?
Palmer: I, I, I...
Tony: You've read the agency policy on sexual harassment, didn't you, Palmer?
Palmer: It wasn't like that!
Tony: It never is. Now go, you little autopsy gremlin. Get out of here!
(McGee is describing his first car)
McGee: 84 Camaro Z28 five-speed.
Tony: That's a smoking hot car, McGee!
Tony: What the hell went wrong with you?
McGee: First day I got behind the wheel I had a slight... thing.
Tony: (touching McGee lightly on the shoulder) Head on?
McGee: I was trying to figure out the wipers. Took my eyes off the road for a second, and when I looked up, there it was, right in front of me.
Tony: (wincing) Car?
McGee: Bus. I got a student pass the day I got out of traction.
(Tony comes over and hugs McGee in sympathy)
Tony: I didn't know.
Tony: Gibbs is a boat man. He doesn't understand that I have to have my car.
Ducky: Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones The shoulder bone connected to the Neck bone, the neck bone connected to the Head bone...
Abby: He's doing it again, McGee.
Tony: Doing what?
Abby: You become Gibbs when he's not around.
Tony: I do not.
McGee: Actually, you do.
Abby: The Caf-Pow, the head-slaps, turning my music off. "What do you got, Abbs?"
McGee: He has been in a foul mood all day.
Abby: That's another Gibbs trait. You don't quite have the stare down yet.
(as they watch Tony's car disintegrate)
Gibbs: Fiberglass. Not good for boats either.
Gibbs: Here to gloat?
Coleman: Actually, I happen to believe in miracles.
Gibbs: Oh, really?
Coleman: Yeah. Never had one happen in front of me, so figured if one did, I'd like to be standing by so I could call the Pentagon.
Gibbs: Miracles take hard work, Commander.
Tony: You realize Mother Teresa would have road rage hell out there?
Abby: Do you think he's gonna want us to hang around?
McGee: I don't know. I can't imagine there's anything that can't wait 'til tomorrow.
Abby: Go ask him.
McGee: You ask him.
Abby: You're the "Special Agent".
McGee: No, he likes you more.
Abby: That's because I don't ask him stupid questions. Rock paper scissors?
McGee: On three.
Abby: One.. two..
Gibbs: Something on your mind?
Gibbs: You weren't thinking about leaving, were ya?
McGee: Absolutely not, no.
Ducky: What do you expect me to find?
Gibbs: Nothing. I just need to buy more time.
Ducky: Oh Jethro! I can spend forever finding nothing.
Abby: Many kinds.
Tony: Uh. Full body?
Abby: Places you could only dream of, DiNozzo.
Tony: Masseuses or masseur?
Abby: I go both ways. You?
Tony: Only with (reading caller ID) Harris, my insurance agent.
Abby: Whatever works, man.
Gibbs: DiNozzo, same clothes you wore yesterday?
Tony: I buy a lot of same things, it makes mornings less stressful. (to the phone) Yeah I'm here!
Gibbs: (hanging up the phone) Now you're gone.
Tony: You two are spending the weekend together. (growls)... Hold on, let me paint a picture.
Kate: You're a pig!
Kate: Dunbarton, near campus. Really hope she was over 21.
Tony: You'd love to know, wouldn't you? Going somewhere this weekend?
Kate: Love to know, wouldn't you?
(They are walking by a red Hummer)
Kate: Why don't you get one of these? Fits your personality perfectly. Loud, overbearing, politically incorrect.
Tony: It is tempting Kate, but I love the car I have.
Kate: Had. Too bad you're not as faithful to the woman in your life.
Tony: Ha that's funny.
Kate: But for your sake I hope that you and she reunite.
Tony: Actually I don't know if I want her back.
Kate: And why is that?
Tony: She's been violated.
Tony: Boss, Lt. Commander Coleman wants to talk to you.
Gibbs: Tell her I'm not here.
Coleman: Why don't you tell me yourself?
Gibbs: Petty Officer Dobbs died in that uniform saving lives, Chief.
Walen: Appreciate that, Agent Gibbs. Doesn't excuse taking one before he left.
Abby: First of all, you owe me big time. It took Kate and me six months to get the reservations to that spa.
Gibbs: You tell me you found something, and I'll think about making it up to you.
Abby: Typical man. Promise you everything until he gets what he wants. Right, McGee?
McGee: Well, actually I..
Abby: Thanks, McGee.
Tony: It's not the same bus boy. My car is part of my being.
Kate: It's a car, Tony.
Tony: It's a classic, Kate. It's a 90 ZR1 Corvette, powerful, fast, gorgeous.
Kate: In other words, it's you.
Kate: Tony's car was towed. Poor baby had to take the bus to work.
Tony: Do you know what kind of people take the bus?
McGee: Yeah, I take the bus.
Gibbs: Any luck with Emmy psychiatrist?
Kate: It's Sunday, Gibbs.
Gibbs: I know. That's what everyone keeps reminding me.
Coleman: This your idea of an apology?
Gibbs: For what? I just don't like to drink alone.
Coleman: The fact that you know where to find me on a Sunday morning is a little scary, Gibbs. Please?
Gibbs: Not as scary as your trunk.
