When Bishop uses her car to stop a fleeing suspect, Tony tells Gibbs that she "pulled a Palmer." This is an allusion to episode 5x17 "About Face", wherein Palmer broad-sided a fleeing suspect's pickup truck with his own SUV.
Gibbs' Rule #14: "Bend the line, don't break it."
GOOF: When Gibbs stares in front of the door protecting the shelter, in MTAC you see the night vision satellite images. Then he knocked out a thug with a single punch, 4 remains, and the screen shows 4 caloric dots representing the four remaining thugs and the bottom of the screen you see one dot (Gibbs) and one body down (the knocked out one), but later if you see the image that DiNozzo sees, you can see for a couple of seconds 5 dots representing the bad guys and the bottom of the screen one dot representing Gibbs.
The end of the episode "Berlin"'s car crash was differently than the one in this episode. Ziva was under rubble in the previous episode and in this one the car was not totaled as badly- she was sitting up in her seat. She was moving and in the previous episode Tony was.
Near the end of the episode when Admiral McGee confronts his aide about the murder, watch Lt. Maine. When the Admiral says "He doesn't need an appointment, Lieutenant.", Maine snaps to attention and salutes. When we switch back to the view of Admiral McGee, Maine turns to salute again.
GOOF: The IP given is 192.168.0.14. However, all 192.168.x.x addresses are designated for local networks. That IP address could never lead to an outside location.
TRIVIA: In this episode, when Ziva tells Gibbs she's fine, you would think Tony, the movie buff, would quote The Italian Job from 2003 on what "Fine" stands for: Freaked out, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional, which Ziva would be considering her father was murdered.
In this episode, Shmeil tells Ziva that he told Eli David's escorts that Eli hated peanuts, yet in Enemies Foreign (season 8 episode 8) Eli tells Vance how incredible peanut butter in a pretzel is while he's eating them.
GOOF: When Tony, Ziva and McGee are talking about the dead reporter, Tony says "So instead of looking for photos of Kate Middleton with her top off, he's trying to catch the Pentagon with their pants down?". While he's saying this, Ziva is looking directly at the monitor. Yet, in the very next shot, when McGee starts speaking, Ziva is looking at Tony and moving her face back to look straight ahead.
In this episode, Tony asks McGee who says "buttock", yet in episode 3x05 Switch Tony tells McGee to "kiss my experienced buttocks".
GOOF: Ziva says Eli likes Tony because he calls him Agent Meatball, but it was actually Michael Rivkin that called Tony by that nickname.
GOOF: Eli David's eyes close between cut-scenes of Ziva hugging him. Also, you can see Eli's chest moving indicating he is breathing, although he has been shot in the heart area.
TRIVIA: This is the first time we see inside Tony's apartment.
TRIVIA: We learn that Tony has a goldfish named Kate for his former partner's memory.
TRIVIA: On Diane Sterling's "Diane Gibbs" drivers licence, the address is listed as 505 E. Laurel Street, Alexandria, VA. There is a 505 E. Laurel in Alexandria, VA, but it's Drive, not Street.;
GOOF: When Rose runs to her parents at the end of the episode, her hands are tied with duct tape. When the camera returns after a snapshot of Gibbs, the tape is completely gone even though no one cut them off.
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.
TRIVIA: Ducky reveals another one of Gibbs' rules, #38 "Your case, your lead."
TRIVIA: Richard Schiff and Sheila Kelley playing Harper Dearing and his ex-wife, respectively, are married in real life. They have been married since 1996 and have two children together.
TRIVIA: The scientists that Abby was observing to get an idea on explosion were the Mythbusters. The show is concerned with testing out myths, movie stunts and fan curiosity to determine whether it is plausible. In the particular episode on thermite was used to attempt to split a in half car using 1000lbs of thermite (Episode "Thermite vs. Ice").
