Tony: You ever had something terrible happen and then you think you put it all behind you, but then the terrible comes back and it's more terrible than it was before?
Ducky: I'm confused.
Tony: So am I.
Ducky: Tony, it was very clear to me from the very first day that I met you that you were a man in pain.
Tony: I'm sorry, I think you have me confused with someone else.
Ducky: No, your pain was as clear to me as Jethro's. He lost Shannon, the one love of his life, and you lost faith in yourself for so many reasons. Jethro coped with his pain by repeatedly marrying the wrong woman, thus insuring that ultimately he would be alone and safe from heartbreak. You repeatedly chase the wrong woman. You're alone because you never did, as you just said, put it all behind you.
McGee: So what's the problem? (Wendy)'s divorced. You're single.
Tony: Problem is, been there, done that. Crash-burn.
McGee: That bad?
Tony: NTSB's still looking for bodies.
Wendy: You thirsty? Can I get you something to eat?
Tony: Not hungry.
Wendy: Since when are you not hungry?
Tony: People get not hungry. It happens.
Wendy: Not to you, it doesn't.
Abby: Wendy's quick stop jarred it loose, and the accelerant leaked onto the fuel block, making it catch on fire. Lucky for her.
Gibbs: Lucky, Abbs? Someone was trying to kill her.
Abby: I'm just trying to be positive. Hey, maybe it was Tony.
Gibbs: Not positive.
Wendy: Hi, guys. Great day for a drive, huh?
Tony: What are you doing?
Wendy: Tracking down a lead.
Tony: No, we're tracking down a lead. You're following us.
Wendy: What? Is that a crime?
Tony: Yes! Technically, it is.
Ziva: I got a speeding ticket.
Tony: Ooh. You know what that means, McGee?
McGee: The system works.
Ziva: I was barely going over the limit.
McGee: Let me see. It says you were doing 80 in a 40.
Ziva: Not the entire time.
