Barrett: This isn't right. It's too easy.
Tony: He knows where Ziva is. There's nothing easy about it.
Barrett: Cobb's playing us.
Tony: Playing Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Guy must have a death wish.
Barrett: What does he want?
Tony: Rule 16: If someone thinks they have the upper hand, break it.
SecNav: You need time, Leon? For God's sake, take all the time you need.
Vance: I'm not talking about time, sir, I'm talking about mistakes. Now you learn to accept a lot with this job. Resolutions that I knew were wrong. And now we're facing the consequences.
SecNav: We can't talk about this here. You know that. We need a SCIF. It's a black op.
Vance: Right this way, sir. Modifications were made, sir. We can talk all we want. The room's tight as a drum.
Vance: Good morning, Mr. Secretary.
SecNav: (nods) Like hell it is, Leon. This better be damn important.
Gibbs: Agent's dead, Mr. Secretary. Another critical. I don't know how much more important it could get.
Vance: (nods) Right this way, sir.
Abby: McGee, what are you doing here?
McGee: (nods) Waiting for you. How's Cade?
Abby: Stable, sort of. I mean, he's lost a lot of blood.
McGee: (nods again) Well, he's a big guy. He's got a lot of blood to lose. Did you stay with him all night?
Abby: He's a friend, McGee. I would do that for any friend. For you or for Tony, for Gibbs.
McGee: (nods) I know you would. And listen, it's okay if you two are more than friends. I understand, seriously. I really like Cade, and I can understand how a man of his stature could be intriguing to a woman...
Abby: Are you for real right now, McGee?
Agent Cruz: I have to work outside of the country.
Ziva: For how long?
Agent Cruz: It could take a while.
Ziva: Then don't go. Stay.
Agent Cruz: I can't.
Ziva: Well, tell them that I threatened to divorce you.
Agent Cruz: They know I'm not married.
Ziva: Well, if you keep doing this, you'll never be.
Agent Barrett: You can have Rota, if you want.
Tony: I think I'll stay put. No sense walking away from a good thing.
Gibbs: That a compliment, DiNozzo?
Tony: No, boss. Sorry. Never.
Cobb: Now, what kind of lesson would you learn if my actions were humane?
Gibbs: You failed as a Navy officer. You were an embarrassment to the CIA. A disappointment to your dad. And you want to teach me a lesson?
Agent Barrett: We're all worried about Ziva.
Tony: I know. It's just different for some of us.
Gibbs: Ziva went to meet Ray Cruz at his hotel, and he wasn't there yet. And now she's missing.
Kort: Gibbs, all I did was provide your team with Cruz's location.
Gibbs: Well, we think Cobb got her.
Kort: You think I sent her in there on purpose? To gain what, exactly?
Gibbs: If she gets hurt, you answer to me.
Kort: Is he threatening me, Director?
Vance: If he wasn't, I am.
