TRIVIA: Before joining NCIS, Tony worked for the Peoria, Philadelphia, and finally Baltimore police departments.
TRIVIA: Gibbs is wearing a Property of Hoover Police Department t-shirt in his basement. This is a department in Hoover, Alabama.
GOOF: Stan asks Gibbs for help while working on board USS Enterprise. When the COD lands on the carrier, it is not CVN 65 - Enterprise, but CVN 74 - John C Stennis. The Stennis is the carrier shown at the start of the season 1 titles. Also while walking through a hangar bay 13 minutes into the episode, an aircraft behind them has the markings of CVN 70 - USS Carl Vinson.
GOOF: When the helicopter is rescuing the crew of the yacht you see the shoulder boards of an officer in the doorway. The shoulder boards have a loop at the top, as used by the Royal Navy.
GOOF: In addition to the shoulder boards, when the shot focuses on the air rescue team retrieving the capsized yachtsmen, on the shoulder of one of the rescuers there is a blatantly obvious Australian flag. Obviously, the HMAS Perth is not part of the USS fleet.
TRIVIA: About 27 minutes in: when Kate and Tony are disagreeing on how to get to 3-79-9-A.. when they are talking to Abby in the scene before, Kate is wearing a red top and green jacket. They exit into the corridor and continue with their bickering (Kate in the same dress mode, she just puts on a jacket) and then they go their seperate ways. However when the scene changes, cutting to Kate walking down another corridor, (turning slightly to avoid a petty officer), she is now wearing the same purple turtle neck that was used earlier (presumably day one). Cut to Tony going up stairs and then back to Kate, still in the purple turtle neck. Cut to Tony 'Skipping' over a knee-knocker, thinking he has got there first. (AT 3-58-9-A) He opens the door, then it is cut to Kate.. now wearing the original red top and green jacket, flashing her credentials to the officer.
TRIVIA: The villain of this episode, Erin Toner, is named for the casting associate for NCIS; this practice is not unique to shows produced by Donald Bellisario, who has a tendency to name some of the characters on his shows after people he knows. Erin Toner (the character's namesake) receives on-screen credit as the casting associate beginning with Season Two's first episode, "See No Evil."
TRIVIA: Mark Schilz, the dead lieutenant, shares his name with one of the producers of NCIS, who is presumably his "namesake.
GOOF: It's never explained how the thief got the $1.2 million off the ship leaving a loose thread to the storyline.
TRIVIA: We learn that the Navy term "TFOA" means "things falling off aircraft".
GOOF: Abby tells Ducky that she doesn't like to be called Abigail. However he continues to do so throughout the series.
GOOF: Kate says that the Eisenhower was a day out of Norfolk on Mar 4, 1994 after a six month deployment in the Mediterraneum Sea. Actually the ship spent most of 1993 in dry dock at Norfolk and wasn't deployed again until Sept 1994 off Haiti. Tony says that the pod was dropped off an F-14 from the squadron, VF-212 "Red Wolfes" on the Eisenhower. While there was a squadron VF-212 formed in 1948 it was disbanded a short time later. In 1955 it was reformed, but it's designation changed in 1956 to VA-212 and disbanded once again in 1975. Its name was the "Rampant Raiders." As for the name "Red Wolves" it belongs to squadron Helicopter Sea Combat 84 (HSC-84) and is "dedicated to Naval Special Warfare support and Strike Rescue."
GOOF: When Gibbs is questioning the investigating NCIS agent via video conference, he says two of the dimensions of the USS Eisenhower are "95,000 tons" and "1,049 feet long," both of which are incorrect, it's actually 101,713 tons and 1,098 feet long.
TRIVIA: This is the first episode when Gibbs hits the back of Tony's head.
TRIVIA: When Tony, Abby, and Gibbs are examining the cargo pod, Abby says something to Gibbs in sign language that is never voiced. She signs, "Tony's weird."
TRIVIA: We learn that Kate is Catholic.
GOOF: Since the victim went overboard from the ship, everything that was attached to his body must have come from the ship, including the weights and chain. So an obvious avenue of investigation would have been to find out if there were weights missing from the ship, who had access to them, when it was noticed they were missing, and if the victim ever used the weights. Yet the team didn't look into any of this.
TRIVIA: The text that makes up "Weylin's Diary" that Abby is reading on her screen is actually copied from an online novel, "The Keeper," by Rod Chappell.
TRIVIA: When we see Tony take off the ship, the helicopter he's on has the number 406. When we next see the helicopter landing in Puerto Rico, the number is now 420.
GOOF: After the final intermission, the scene opens up with the port (left) side of the the Forrest except for the fact that the number showing is now 12 and not 51.
