McGee: Good news. I'm mentally stable.
Wolf: Almost disturbingly so.
Gibbs: Go home, Ducky.
Ducky: I am bored to tears at home.

Gibbs: Until I hear that from a doctor not named Mallard, I want you resting. Doc, look, if something comes up and the kid gets stuck, I'll call you. You know I will.
Ducky: All right, I'll leave, but not happily, I assure you.
Gibbs: I don't need you happy. I need you healthy.
Tony: How does one get to be a Navy Facilities Manager anyway?
Judy: Oh, same way one gets to be a very special agent, I imagine.

Judy: Uh, hard work, determination, and as for the luck, I prefer to make my own.
Tony: Amen to that, sister.
