TRIVIA: At the beginning of the level where Tim gives Gibbs his iphone to take a picture of the sailor, and says to "point and click", Gibbs doesn't take a photo but actually just presses the iphone's button to get the the "slide to unlock" screen.
TRIVIA: This is the first episode where the 3 second teaser being shown at the beginning is NOT for for the end scene before the intro (like in past episodes). Now when the teaser is shown, it's for the scene after the intro leading into the first commercial break.
GOOF: When Gibbs arrives, the cop on the scene tells him that the guy on the roof is a sailor. However, there is no explanation how he knows this, and since he won't even tell Gibbs his name, chances are he wouldn't have told that information, either.
TRIVIA: Abby wouldn't wear contacts because she is squeamish about sticking her finger in her eye.
GOOF: When Abby reads the fortune cookie, she says: "Welcome an invitation to change your financial future." What is actually printed on it is this: "Welcome an invitation that will change your financial future."
TRIVIA: McGee has apparently developed a fear of heights which he did not display in season 4, episode "Once a Hero." In that episode, McGee is leaning over the 6th floor railing quite relaxed, looked down at Gibbs and the others.
GOOF: During the close-up shots of the team on the rooftop the first parked car in sight is a silver station wagon in parking space 5 or 6. But when Ducky sees them in the long-distance shot on TV there is a blue sedan parked in space 1 or 2 right next to the rooftop building. In the next (closer) shot the blue car is gone again.
TRIVIA: Gibbs cell phone number: +1 (202) 345-6905 (nice departure from the 555-xxxx fake phone numbers), as saw when he received a text message.
TRIVIA: McGee went to a psychiatrist once when he was younger.
Gibbs' Rule # 15: Always work as a team.
TRIVIA: Abby gets three or four job offers a year.
(Dr. Fleming sees Tony and McGee scuffling in his waiting room.)
Dr. Fleming: Hey, hey. You two have deeper issues than you discussed on the phone.
Tony: On the phone?
Dr. Fleming: Aren't you the couple that called up about marriage counseling?
(Jardine, Tony, McGee, and Ziva all argue loudly about who murdered Lt. Arnett)
Gibbs: (whistles to get everyone's attention) Hey! Break up the dog pile! This is a murder investigation, and I am hearing alot of theories here and not much else. Get on it!
Gibbs: Arnett's computer?
Abby: Scrubbed clean, like the day it was born in Taiwan.
(Abby walks into the deserted bull pen with evidence. She sits down at Gibbs desk and puts on his glasses, picks up his phone and says angrily)
Abby: Special Agent Gibbs! (Abby takes off glasses as she realizes Gibbs is behind her) You're standing behind me aren't you?
Gibbs: Yep. (Abby puts the phone down) You feeling secure about your job, are you Abbs?
Abby: Umm, not so much anymore.
Tony: Colour back, now that you're on terra firma there, Probalicious?
McGee: I would've done it!
Tony: Only, ah, you didn't.
Ziva: I think he's more afraid of heights then you are.
Tony: Please, I rock climbed!
Ziva: (laughing): Yeah, twenty feet, with a harness, to impress a girl.
Tony: Well it worked.
Ziva: Good marriage needs good communication.
McGee: You've never been to a therapist before?
Tony: Me? No. You?
McGee: Yeah. Once when I was young.
Tony: For your acrophobia?
McGee: You're blowing that all outta proportion, Tony.
Tony: Well, you showed a pathological fear of heights earlier today.
McGee: I was staring down ten stories, being a little disoriented, it's a little understandable.
Tony: Disoriented? You had your panties in a twist, tears in your eyes. Oh wait, I couldn't see your eyes, cause they were shut so tight. You were hysterical like a little girl.
McGee: I was not.
Tony: You were huggin the ladder. Ladder hugger. And I've got the photographic evidence.
(Tony pulls out his phone, on which he had recorded McGee from earlier)
Tony: Let technology show you the truth.
McGee: My eyes are not closed. I was blinking.
Tony: Oh. Oh is that what you're doing? Let's let the people decide.
McGee: You're not gonna post that on YouTube.
McGee: You give me that thing or I'm gonna...
(The two of them scuffle, as McGee tries to get the phone from Tony)
Tony: I can't believe Abby would think of leaving without saying anything.
Ziva: Get over it, Tony!
Tony: I mean I understand her not telling you, but me, I mean I've known her for a long time.
Tony: I love you McGee. I promise never to give you a hard time again.
McGee: Yeah, right.
Jenny: I see McGee has your mad act down.
Ziva: (Nudges Tony) Down Tony.
Gibbs: Lieutenant Arnett's file? I could have gotten more from the Washington Post.
Ziva: But would you... (suggestively hand gestures)
Tony: What, in a HazMat suit?
McGee: We're Special Agents Tony DiNozzo and Timothy McGee.
Tony: Very Special Agents.
McGee: Couple? Us? No, no.
Tony: It's okay, Timmy. Timmy, we're in a safe place. We can be ourselves here.
Tony: Here's another reason he'd want to end it all - rejuvenator. Arnett was losing his hair.
McGee: Oh that's a long way up.
Tony: It's a long way down.
(After Abby yells at the team, they are in the elevator, and Abby shouts after them)
Abby: DiNozzo get back in here!
Tony: Anybody wanna come with me?
(McGee pushes him forward)

Jardine not shaking hands and eventually bumping fists with Tony is an allusion to comedian Howie Mandel who has OCD and doesn't shake hands but bumps fists.
