Season 7 Episode 2


Aired Tuesday 8:00 PM Sep 29, 2009 on CBS



  • Trivia

    • TRIVIA: When the team arrests Elaina, Tony says "you're a bad puddy tat." He said she's been a "bad kitty cat" when he arrested Jaime Carr in the episode, "Voyeur's Web."

    • GOOF: When Tony and McGee flash their badges when introducing themselves at the Auction School, Tony's badge is missing his photo ID, you can clearly see the slot where it sits is empty. McGee's badge has ID clearly seen.

    • TRIVIA: When Tony is at the urinal he is singing "Chad Gadya," a song often sung at Passover Seders. Abby and McGee also used to help brush up on their Hebrew in the previous episode using this song. Tony mispronounces "Chad," using the American "ch" sound instead of the more guttural throat sound used in Hebrew, though he may be pronouncing it wrong on purpose.

  • Quotes

    • Ziva: Hello, Abby.
      Abby: What the hell is wrong with you?! How could you have doubted Tony after everything you've been through together? Do you really think that Tony killed Rivkin because he was jealous?!
      Ziva: Abby, please calm -
      Abby: You weren't thinking! That's what you weren't thinking! Although I suppose I could understand your initial reaction. You were at an emotional time for you and for people to act rationally - but to tell Gibbs that you didn't trust Tony?! Which I guess I could also understand, because I guess he did just shoot your boyfriend. In your living room. To death. All right, I'll give you that one, but this is Tony we're talking about here! All soft and goofy on the outside and 100% rock on the inside! And after everything you accused him of, he risked his life to go save you! You should be ashamed of yourself, even though in hindsight it is starting to make a little bit more sense now. But either way, the ball is in your court! It is Tony one and Ziva zilch! This is your move, and it had better be a good one! Oh, God. I was so worried about you. (hugs Ziva)
      Ziva: I know.

    • Tony: She's already re-engaged! Does that remind you of anyone, boss?
      Gibbs: How long are you going to keep making those jokes, DiNozzo?
      Tony: I think that was actually the last time I am ever going to make that joke. Sorry.

    • Danorth: Is this about Eric Jurel? I've already heard – good news travels fast.
      McGee: Good news?
      Danorth: Well, he's dead, isn't he?
      Tony: Did you wake up this morning wanting to be the prime suspect in a murder investigation?

    • Tony: Taking the tour?
      Ziva: I have my first psych evaluation.
      Tony: Oh, yeah, I always love those.
      Ziva: I'm sure. You get to talk about yourself the entire time. (Tony laughs, Ziva is embarrassed) I'm sorry, I meant, um...
      Tony: No, no, no, that's okay. No one's ever accused you of having tact. (he realizes what he just said) Sorry.

    • Tony: Hey, you missed a shot there sidekick.
      McGee: I'm not your sidekick, Tony.
      Tony: And yet you are.

    • Ziva: It is called um...
      Gibbs: It is called a Buck Morris chisel.
      Ziva: That is not for rescuing me, that is for leaving me in Israel. You are probably wondering perhaps I rigged it to explode.
      Gibbs: No, I was thinking this is a really nice chisel.

    • Ziva: I was not sure what to say.
      Tony: Well you were sure it had to be said in the mens' room?
      Ziva: I'm sure it had to be said. (Pauses) When you shot Michael, I almost killed you where you stood.
      Tony: I wasn't standing.
      Ziva: No you weren't, you were lying on the ground, without adequate backup, completely violating protocol...
      Tony: And double parked.
      Ziva: Yes. I noticed. But that does not matter. Just like it does not matter how it worked out for Michael.
      Tony: So what does?
      Ziva: That you had my back, that you have always had my back and that I was wrong to question your motives.
      Tony: So why did you?
      Ziva: I trusted my brother Ari, I trusted Michael, I could not afford to trust you.
      Tony: I thought you weren't sure what to say.
      Ziva: I guess I had a long time to think about things.
      Tony: I'm sorry Ziva.
      Ziva: No it is I who am sorry.
      (Kisses Tony on the cheek) Your instincts were right, you were a cop and I should have never faulted you for thinking...
      Tony: (Grabs Ziva) I'm a cop! I think like a cop...genius!

    • McGee: That is extremely helpful, I can pull the GPS history and look at the logs... (he watches Tony and Ziva staring at each other) And I'm gonna go do that after I get... a Nutter Butter. (he leaves quickly)

    • Fillmore (puts a letter on the desk): My letter of resignation.
      (Tony picks up letter)
      McGee: That's a very long...
      Fillmore: I had a hard time choosing the right adjectives. I couldn't decide between childish, juvenile and just plain old annoying.
      (Fillmore glares at Tony)
      McGee: It's true.
      (McGee chuckles and Fillmore turns to McGee)
      Fillmore: And you, you know better. But you are so busy playing the faithful sidekick, you just go along for the ride. Well I've had enough. (snatches paper out of Tony's hands and slams it on desk) Make sure that Agent Gibbs gets that. (storms out)
      Tony: Annoying?
      McGee: Sidekick?

    • Tony: How long have you been standing there?
      Ziva: Long enough to see that you are well-hydrated after your time in the desert.

    • McGee: She'll call if she's ready.
      Tony: Last time I said that I ended up tied to a chair in North Africa.

    • McGee: You know Janet with psych services?
      Tony: Man hands, great eyes.
      McGee: Yeah, she asked me out for drinks, tomorrow night.
      Tony: That's not bad for a guy who spent half the last mission sleeping on the floor.
      McGee: I was not sleeping on the floor.
      Tony: Could've fooled me.

    • Tony: What's going on around here anyway? I just signed an autograph going through security.
