GOOF: At the very start of the episode Jamie Carr is doing a slow striptease. She's wearing a flimsy robe which she slides off her shoulders. It falls completely to the bed and she tosses the robe to the side. The camera switches to a male onlooker, and then back to Jamie, who, as before, has the robe completely on her, belt tied and all!
GOOF: When looking at the missing wives driver license photos we see that Jamie Lee Carr's DOB / License Issue / Expiration Dates are all 9-31 - This is September 31st but there are only 30 days in September. The court code for her license that we can see is D5 R3. This may relate to the D System and Risk Scale for rating backcountry ski and snowboard mountain descents. The zip code listed 23259 does not exist. On Leanne Roberts license her street is listed as Woodlaen Drive. Assuming it was supposed to be Woodlawn or Woodlane. Her court code is (PWN NOO8Z) in computer leet speak this is "Own Noobs" roughly translated to "kick newbies butts." The zip code listed 23259 does not exist. On Carter Finch's license we see that once again a computer leet speak term is in the court code. It is listed as "L337 SK1775" also know as "Leet Skills" or "Elite Skills." The zip code listed is correct for Portsmouth. Each license has the owner getting their license issued on their birthday. It is unlikely that each of the 3 would go get their license on their birthday. Both licenses where we can see the year list the issued year as 2004 and the expiration as 2008. All 3 licenses list the postal +4 code as 0999 even though the 2 wives and Finch are in different Zip codes. Jamie Carr in an organ donor and it shows a red heart with the words "Organ Donor" on the other 2 licenses they are not organ donors but you can see the faint outline of the heart.
TRIVIA: We learn from Gibbs conversation with the Director about the new assistant assigned to Abby that the guys in the mail room call her "Energizer Abby."
GOOF: When McGee gets the last log on for Carter Finch his program lists the IP Address as: 2184.108.40.2061.6
This is an invalid IP Address for 2 reasons.
1. The IP is listed in dot-decimal notation and there are only supposed to be 4 separate numbers not 5.
2. The range for each of the 4 numbers is 0-255. The 1st and 4th numbers are above this range as such they are invalid.
TRIVIA: When Ziva is hitting the keyboard in frustration, she repeatedly hits the J key.
GOOF: When Abby is on the phone trying to reach Gibbs, McGee enters the lab to ask Abby if she saw Gibbs, we can see the reflection of the camera man and some of the crew in the glass door.
GOOF: There is no saying "Zevel ze zevel" (crap is crap), in the Israeli jargon.
TRIVIA: Abby is beside herself that she has to work with another person, but in episode 2.14 "Witness":
Abby: I need an assistant.
Gibbs: Not in the budget.
GOOF: When Gibbs is trying to stop the sergeant from killing the other guy, he's holding his ID in diffrent ways each take: one he holds from the bottom and the other from the top.
TRIVIA: Apparently when Abby did this...
Abby: Gibbs, I can't work like this anymore! (Abby had the fake knife and scared the heck out of everyone by pretending to slit her throat)
... it wasn't actually in the script. Pauley Perrette forgot that Mark Harmon/Gibbs was supposed to be ignoring her and jokingly did that. And that was Mark's actual reaction, they thought it was funny so they left it in there.
Ziva: Tony, it's almost nine o'clock. Isn't tonight your big birthday dinner?
Tony: We broke up.
Tony: Apparently, her husband didn't think it was a good idea.
Ziva: She's married?
Tony: Knew she was too good to be true.
Ziva: Do you still have those dinner reservations? My treat.
Tony: I guess I could drown my sorrows in surf and turf.
Ziva: That's a good attitude.
Tony: I'll catch up. (Tony runs back to his desk to get the bag with the lingerie he had bought for his date. Without lookin back, Ziva knows what he's doing.)
Ziva: You will not be needing that!
Tony: Oh. Well, in all fairness, that was McGee's fault.
Tony: Well he's the one who brought the rubber bands down from the supply room. Should have known better.
Ziva: I think he learned his lesson. I never knew a rubber band could leave such a welt.
Tony: It's all in the release.
Ziva: It's astounding you actually find the time to do your job.
Tony: What did I tell you about telling her about my personal life?
McGee: I'm sorry. She tricked me again.
Tony: Hey, next time, why don't you tell her how I lost my virginity?
Ziva: I've been meaning to ask you about that, Tony. How does a fifteen year old boy go about meeting a coquette?
McGee: She means Rockette, boss.
(Seeing the people at the crime scene)
Ziva: Where did all the people come from?
Tony: Don't you see the signs "yard sale day."
Ziva: I see, and do marines sell their yards often?
McGee: No actually, people gather stuff they don't want anymore and sale it in their yards.
Ziva: Why would anyone want to buy someone's junk?
Tony: One man's junk is another man's treasure.
Ziva: In Israel we have a saying "zevel ze zevel". (Tony and McGee look confused) Crap is crap.
Tony: If things get hairy, just follow my lead. (To a group of cheerleaders) What's happening ladies?
Ziva: I don't need a babysitter, Tony, I've been in hundreds of these situations.
Tony: Never with me. As far as I'm concerned, you're a probie.
Ziva: I've never had sex with you either, does that make me a virgin?
Tony: Trust is a virtue that's earned, not given.
Ziva: (In a mocking tone) Profound!
Tony: I try.
Tony: Hey, quit feeling sorry for yourself. Do what you do best.
McGee: Oh, you mean screwing up?
Tony: No, finding answers where no one else can.
(Tony walks away with Ziva)
Ziva: That was nice of you.
Tony: Never kick a Probie when he's down, Ziva.
Ziva: I thought the expression was 'dog'.
Tony: Same difference.
Abby: What's the matter, Chip? Don't like watching porn with me? Sorry, I'm not really one of the fellas, but I'm doing the best I can.
Chip: I don't really watch the explicit material of my peers, ma'am, uh, Abby. Abby, I don't really watch it at all.
Abby: Not buying it, Chip.
Chip: And why is that?
Abby: Two reasons. One, you're male, and two, you're breathing.
Chip: I really hate being called Chip...
Abby: I really hate that Ozzy got fat and stupid. Live with it.
(Tony is showing Ziva the nightgown that he got for his girlfriend. He is holding it up to himself)
Tony: What do you think?
(Gibbs walks in)
Gibbs: It's not your color, Tony.
(Chip and Abby are watching the website porn)
Abby: This has been the longest 2 days of my life. Popcorn Chip? (Abby offers the popcorn to Chip)
(Chip doesn't answer because he is so involved with watching the porn)
Abby: Chip, are you with us?
Chip: Oh yeah... sorry Ma'am I guess I zoned out for a minute.
Palmer: What are you doing, Dr. Mallard?
Ducky: Performing an autopsy, Mr. Palmer.
Palmer: Shouldn't we have a body?
Gibbs: We have two crime scenes, one website, zero bodies! I want some answers!
Gibbs: What do you have, Abbs?"
Abby: Um, a PhD in porn. I've spent the last six hours searching through webcam files trying to find some kind of lead, and I have consumed more porn than Tony has in his lifetime. (pauses briefly) Okay, maybe not, but I have watched a lot of smut.
Gibbs: Did you learn anything?
Abby: I'm not nearly as flexible as I should be...
Gibbs: Anything about the case?!
Abby: Right... I was getting to that...
(McGee thinks that Ziva is a "Star Wars" fan)
Tony: She has a photographic memory, Probie, not a social disorder.
Ziva: The odds of finding him off a list of that size is...
Gibbs: Better than the odds of you winning this argument.
(McGee and Gibbs enter a basement)
McGee: The money could be anywhere. (Gibbs stares at him) I'm gonna find it.
Ziva: It could take days to search this place.
Tony: Why don't you tell Gibbs that, he loves our input.
Ziva: I've been meaning to ask you about that, Tony. How does a 15-year-old boy go about meeting a coquette?
McGee: She means Rockette, Boss.
Abby: (to Gibbs) If we investigated every weird video from the internet, well, you know... (Gibbs looks at her) ...OK, you don't know, but trust me.
Ziva: (to Tony and Gibbs) Which proves what I long suspected, that despite the conservative image Americans really love their porn.
McGee: Girlfriend is always emailing me these internet videos. She sent me one of this room last week.
Dinozzo: Why do I find that hard to believe?
McGee: What, you never get forwarded weird videos to your email?
Dinozzo: All the time. I meant the part about you having a girlfriend.
Abby: Gibbs, I can't work like this anymore! (Abby has a fake knife and scares the heck out of everyone by pretending to slit her throat)
