  • Great episode

    Great episode, very well done, nice to finally see Tony's apartment indeed, and I absolutely loved the fish called Kate part...

    But it surprises me to see nobody noticed that on the corner of Ziva's computer, there is a small copy of the picture from Tony in his I have to admit this was the third time I watched this episode and I never noticed it before either...
  • Nice and touching.

    This episode was really good onec again, with a great storyline and a great case that was investigated. But certainly the interactions between Senior and Junior were what made this episode special. There were some really touching moments and some not so touching moments but all of it came together beautifully.

    It was a nice Christmas-themed episode! I definitely enjoyed it! I am really looking forward to the next one!

    EDIT: And I thought it was ana AMAZING touch to name the fish Kate. <333 Submlime choice!moreless
  • Loved this episode!

    I think this was the best episode ever!
  • Tried to think of something clever about the episode but couldn't !!!

    While I wouldn't go as far as Magicmax, below, I do have to say this was pretty dull fare for a Christmas episode.

    After the hilarity of Devil's Trifecta, this was really dull and the "reveal" of Tony's apartment was underwhelming, to say the least.

    This flamboyant, Italian American who loves movies, good food and women has a flat so sterile and boring that McGee wouldn't live in it.

    Where were the racks of movies?

    Where was the State of the Art sound system that he got McGee to set up in a previous episode?

    What about "Kate" the poor fat Goldfish in one of those horrible glass bowls that are basically death traps. The poor thing would be floating upside down within a month.

    And the ultimate horror of that bedroom with the pitiful single bed !!!!

    No single guy I know would have a single bed unless there simply wasn't room for a double.

    All I can say is that if the rumours about Michael Weatherly having a big say in the design of this flat are true, then he is more anally retentive than he purports McGee to be.

    As with Devil's Trifecta, the case was secondary to the relationship issues but what happened to Abby, this Christmas?

    A sad little set piece in the lab instead of her running around like a headless chicken as she usually does.

    Sorry fellow reviewers but anyone who thought this was an episode worthy of a "9" or "10" rating, seriously needs to get the rose tinted glasses surgically removed.

    Hoping for better in the New Year!

    . might I be the first to wish all my fellow reviewers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  • Dinozzo's Sanctuary

    It was really great getting to see how Dinozzo's apartment was like. Wasn't what I expected though. He has really grown! Or he just have been putting up a front all those years when he's at work.

    Showing Ziva's house would be great next. As we have seen Gibbs's, McGee's, Vance's and Ducky's.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: Well, Junior's the only family I have left. After his mother died, it-it just hasn't been the same.
      Ziva: He showed me a picture of her. She was really beautiful.
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: Mm-hmm, inside and out. She was the love of my life, Ziva. I've never been able to fill up that void. But God knows I've gotten into a lot of trouble trying.

    • Tony: I don't understand. Where are you staying?
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: At your place.
      Tony: No! No, no, no, no. Because it's-it's not big enough.
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: Oh, come on, Junior. You've got room. (looks at Ziva) Doesn't he?
      Ziva: Um, I-I would not know. I've never been invited.
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: Is that true? What's the matter with you?

    • Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: (about his single size bed) That's your bed?
      Tony: Yeah.
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: Not much room for play.
      Tony: Well, when I come home dad, I sleep alone.
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: You're serious?
      Tony: Dad, this is my sanctuary. Okay? If I'm going to see a lady, I will stay at her place. That way, I can leave when I want and nobody overstays their welcome. What?
      Anthony DiNozzo Sr.: You're missing so many things, intimacy, commitment.

  • NOTES (2)


    • The bartender at Gillespie's tells Gibbs and Ziva that Huffner and Cannady used to sit at the end of the bar every night, "just like Cliff and Norm." He's referring to Cliff Clavin and Norm Peterson, the two regular barflies in the series Cheers, which ran from 1982 to 1993 on NBC.
