  • Trivia

    • TRIVIA: The song that Ziva listens to at the end is "O Mio Babbino Caro" (My dear papa) from Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini. In this aria Lauretta begs her father to look favorably upon her beloved Rinuccio. For many this aria will be linked to the Tuscan countryside and scenes of Florence from the Merchant/Ivory production of E.M. Forster's A Room With a View.

  • Quotes

    • Joe: Look, I get it. You show up here, you offer me some ice cream and a balloon to stick around. But I'm sorry, sir. I can't accept.
      Gibbs: Case isn't closed. I still need your help.
      Joe: I'm not staying in this room another day.
      Gibbs: Okay, then you can bunk with me. Rocky Road's in the freezer.
      Joe: You're hilarious.
      Gibbs: Yeah, I know. Get in the car.

    • Gibbs: Ducky, I sent home plenty of marines like Westcott, and-and I knew their heads weren't right. I hoped that there would be someone on the other side to catch them.
      Ducky: You had no choice. I mean, you had to stay behind. It was your duty.
      Gibbs: I'm on the other side now. I tried to catch Westcott. I didn't. He wouldn't let me.
      Ducky: And when do you take "no" for an answer?
      Gibbs: I'm angry, Ducky.
      Ducky: You can't fix the world, Jethro. But you can call the boy.
