GOOF: Standard SMS text messages allow 160 characters not 150 characters, and when sending a SMS text message through an e-mail account, it is also 160 characters.
GOOF: When McGee is tracing the source of the SMS Sosa got, the last block in the IP address is 2913, which is invalid as they go from 0 to 255.
GOOF: When Gibbs, Ziva and McGee drive up to meet LVM, they park with the passenger side door facing the curb. Next shot, the car is pulling up with the driver side door facing the curb. When they finally park, the passenger side door is against the curb again.
GOOF: There is a camera reflection behind Ducky's head and shoulders in the scene were Ducky is showing Gibbs the bodies for the first time in autopsy.
(Tony flips open a case that has a gun inside)
Ziva: Whoa, that's a big one!
(Everyone stares at her momentarily)
LCpl. Silva: How much trouble am I in?
Gibbs: Trouble? Why don't you sit down?
LCpl. Silva: Four NCIS Agents escorting one Lance Corporal?
Tony: You've got it all wrong, Marine. She's Mossad.
Cesar: So like, you don't got no questions for me.
Tony: (playing a game on his cell phone with his feet up on the table) That's a double negative.
Tony: Don't got no, is a double negative. It's a non standard use of two negative words in the same sentence. Cancels each other out and creates a positive.
Tony: Is that man lotion working for you Probie?
McGee: Didn't shave today. Trying a new look.
Tony: When you say today, you mean the last couple of minutes or?
McGee: Abby seems to like it.
Tony: Like what?
Ziva: Looks nice McGee. It's very manly.
Tony: May I? (Touches McGee's face)
Tony: Hey Boss.
Gibbs: Why are you touching his face?
Tony: I dunno. It feels good though. It's like a bunny rabbit.
Gibbs: (smacking Tony's head) Don't.
Gibbs: You expecting an 'Atta Boy'?
Tony: I thought it would be nice.
Gibbs: (stroking Tony's head) Atta Boy.
Tony: This isn't about orientation. It's about image.
Ziva: So now your image is homopubic?
Tony: The term is homophobic and no. Prejudice of any kind is an ugly thing.
Ducky: Yes, I once performed an autopsy on a man who drowned in his kitchen sink. Yes, apparently, he couldn't remove the drain plug and attempted to use his teeth.
Tony: Well you're walking a slippery slope there Probalicious. Before you know it you're going to be taking bubble baths with clogs on.
McGee: What is wrong with bubble baths?
Tony: Gibbs said keep him on ice; not show him the warning signs of osteoarthritis.
Ducky: Yes, I'd heard about your infatuation with lotions.
McGee: The lotion was for a skin condition.
Ducky: Well, it's quite alright Timothy; skin care is something we should all take more seriously. In my opinion, there's absolutely nothing gay about it. Not that there's anything wrong with... with that.
McGee: I've heard.
Ziva: I think Tony was jerking your brain.
McGee: Jerking my chain? Chain.
McGee: The manicure was only once and it was because I tore a cutical.
Tony: You just set the gaydar off of the whole Atlantic ocean.
McGee: Something wrong, boss?
Gibbs: Just admiring your feminine glow.
Gibbs: McGee, you're trying too hard.
(hands him a can of shaving cream)
McGee: Right. On it, boss.
Tony: My name's Anthony. People call me Tony. Of course, backwards it spells Y-Not.

(about McGee using lotions)
Ducky: I don't think there's absolutely anything gay about it! (nervously) Not that there's anything wrong... with... with that...
Ducky makes the comment "Not that there's anything wrong with that" in regards to the possibility that McGee is gay which references the Seinfeld episode "The Outing" when Jerry and George were "outed" by a reporter and Jerry says, "We're not gay not that there's anything wrong with that."
Tony: You just set off Gaydar across the entire Atlantic seaboard.
A taunt at McGee and a reference to Gaydar (obviously a play on the word radar), whereby gay men are supposed to be able to recognize their fellow homosexuals just by the way they look, act or speak.
Tony clicks his fingers and mentions the Sharks, which he references to the musical and film West Side Story. The finger clicking is an allusion to the beginning of the film when the rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks are singing the song 'Cool'. The use of the clicks is part of the at the time very innovative choreography by Jerome Robbins.
