With his appearance here, Derek Webster joins the group of people who have appeared in both of Donald P. Bellisario's JAG and NCIS. He appeared in three episodes of JAG (7x10, 10x5 and 10x18) and two episodes of NCIS (1x20 and 4x5).
GOOF: At the beginning of the episode Tony is typing on the keyboard and we find out that he is playing an online game. However, the game he is playing is not played with the keyboard, it is played exclusively with the mouse.
GOOF: When Gibbs and DiNozzo are looking after the bar for evidence, DiNozzo finds a cigarette. In the first shot it is a few centimeters from the stairs, but in the close-up shot it is almost next to the stairs.
GOOF: When Tony leaves the bar and phones Gibbs, Gibbs has on a full set of latex gloves. He takes off the left one, but keeps the right one on as he answers the phone. For most of the conversation, he has the glove on, then suddenly it's gone, with no indication that he had the time or inclination to take it off.
GOOF: The entrance to the sewers says Manassas County, but Manassas is a city in Virginia.
Abby: All I drank was Red Bull!
Kate: How many?
According to the warning label on the back of Red Bull cans, no more then 2 cans (500mL) should be consumed per day.
If more then 5 cans are consumed (1.25L) then possible side affects include nausea, diarrhoea, stomach pains, gas, light green urine color, sleeplessness and/or fatigue when caffeine effect wears off.
Rule #09 - Never go anywhere without a knife. (Used in a conversation between Tony and the Gunny)
TRIVIA: During the episode, Gibbs tells Tony to "watch his six" meaning be careful. Six is military slang for tail because aviators refer to their position in reference to the face of a clock. Twelve o'clock is directly infront of you, and six o'clock is directly behind you.
GOOF: When Kate and Tony present the results of their all-nighter to Gibbs and Tony tries to convince Gibbs to let him shadow Sacco. First, we see Tony sitting at his desk slightly turned to the side to face Gibbs, then Gibbs steps behind the desk to get himself another slice of pizza and Tony sits straight at his desk. And rolls his eyes at Gibbs, which is a really cute scene, but kind of ruined because in the next shot, he again sits facing Gibbs.
TRIVIA: Extra host Dayna Devon popped up in cameos on more than a dozen shows all around the dial in 2004 including this NCIS episode. But wasn't just for fun -- it was also for charity. Dayna has donated all of her acting fees from Dayna TV to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, which helps children infected with the AIDS virus. All those zany, short-lived cameos raised $10,000 for the Foundation.
Tony: Rule nine.
Tony: You know, those rules they teach you guys in the Marine Corps.
Gunny: What rules?
Tony: I always suspected Gibbs was making that stuff up.
Gibbs: Tony, if that game's still on your computer in the morning, I'll pierce your ears myself.
Tony: Gibbs! What are you doing here?
Gibbs: What do you think?!
Kate: Do we know how big his unit was?
Abby: We could ask him... but in my experience, most men lie about that point.
Abby: Gallipoli Gallipoli Gallipoli Gallipoli...
Gibbs: Please stop.
Gibbs: Tony does his best work without an audience.
Gibbs: Good job.
Tony: Did you say something, boss? Kate did he say something?
Kate: Don't push it.
Tony: Pushing it is what I love about this job.
Tony: All men lie to some degree, Kate. It's expected of them.
Kate: Don't confuse your world with reality, Tony.
Tony: It's like when a woman asks a guy to guess her age. You ever done that?
(Kate looks at him)
Tony: You honestly still believe you look twenty five? (walks away)
Kate: Not anymore.
(Gibbs takes Tony's slurpee and throws it out the window)
Tony: That's littering.
Gibbs: Fine me!
Kate: Thank God, Tony's still alive. Who else can piss people off like that?
Gunny: Unless you're a blacksmith, I'm pretty much screwed here.
Tony: You need to think positive, Gunny.
Gunny: You're right. I'm positive I'm screwed.
Tony: Remember the good old days, Kate?
Kate: What good old days?
Tony: When Gibbs would confide in us and treat us like peers?
Tony: Good. I thought I was the only one.
Tony: Boss, is there a reason why you always take these back roads?
Kate: Or do you just hate us?
Gibbs: I hate traffic more!
Tony: I think I'm going to puke.
Gibbs: Roll down a window!
Gibbs: (hands phone to Kate) Here, answer this.
Abby: Hey, Gibbs, it's me, Abby. I got a...
Kate: It's Kate.
Abby: Hey Kate, where's the boss man?
Kate: He's driving. We should be back soon.
Abby: Is he taking you on one of his special short cuts?
Kate: If that's what you want to call it. What's up?
Abby: Well, Gibbs asked me to do some background on Atlas and Sacco, and I found something interesting.
Kate: You're gonna have to speak up. Gibbs is apparently trying to kill us!
Tony: Rush hour. Kinda a misnomer if you ask me.
Gibbs: I didn't.
Tony: I mean it's not like anybody's really rushing anywhere and it always takes more than an hour. They should call it, like...
Gibbs: Shut up and sit there before I shoot you hour!
Tony: I was thinking of something a little shorter.
Tony: (softly) Kate? (he gets no response) KATE!!!
Kate: (Jumping up from under her desk with a start) What?
Tony: (Looking pouty) Time to wake up.
Kate: Look, just don't take any chances, okay? If we're right about Sacco, he's got more than a screw loose.
Tony: Aw, and here I was thinking you didn't care.
Kate: It's not about caring. If anything happens to you, I'm gonna get stuck here working with Gibbs alone.
Tony: Aw, he's not that bad.
Gibbs: Hey! DiNozzo! You still here?
Tony: Then again, you may be on to something.
Tony: It's my lunch break.
Kate: It's 9.30 in the morning.
Tony: I'm on Greenwich Mean Time.
Kate: Well, you're gonna be on unemployment if Gibbs catches you doing that.
Gibbs: Doing what, Kate?
Kate: Tony, you are so lucky you didn't have sisters growing up.
Tony: Why's that?
Kate: Because you'd never have reached puberty. Of course, one could argue you still haven't reached it.
Kate: You were pretty tough with her.
Gibbs: She reminds me of my ex-wife.
Tony: Which one?
Gibbs: All of them!
Tony: My dad was right, I'm gonna end up in the gutter.
Atlas: You got a plan?
Tony: Of course I do. I found you, didn't I?
Abby: I've got a weird feeling.
Gibbs: Abbs, you always have weird feelings.
Kate: I feel like hell.
Tony: You don't look too good either.
Gibbs: DiNozzo. Hey! Get your butt over here.
Vanessa: Is he always like that?
Tony: Ah, only when he's awake.
Gibbs: By the way, Gallipoli? Was an amphibious operation.
Abby: Oh. Oooh. Well, it's on Styrofoam...so it'll float.
Abby: What do you think, Kate?
Kate: Oh, I think you're just suffering from the aftereffects of your party last night.
Abby: All I drank was Red Bull.
Kate: How many?
Kate: Oh, he was just thinking about getting both of his ears pierced.
Gibbs: That right, DiNozzo?
Tony: I think Kate misunderstood, boss. What I was really talking about was elongating the lobe, which is a surgery...
Gibbs: Hey, you wanna look like a gay pirate, that's your call.
Kate: I thought you couldn't type.
Tony: I've decided to improve myself.
Kate: Well, in that case, you might wanna lose that shirt. It went out of style three years ago.
Tony: This from a girl who keeps a puka shell necklace in her purse.
Kate: My grandma gave me those. Wait, you looked in my purse?
Tony: Sorry, did I say that out loud?
Tony: Admit it, you were worried about me, right? You don't have to say anything, I know. Okay, I want you to say it, you care, right? (no response from Gibbs or Kate) ...So, you're saying you don't care?
Gibbs: Tony as far as I'm concerned you are... irreplaceable.
Tony: I knew it. I knew behind the whole marine thing you had a heart...
Gibbs: (Turns to McGee who is at Tony's desk) Forget about it, McGee, he's still alive.
(Off Tony looking stunned at seeing McGee at his desk)
