  • Trivia

    • Goof: The file that Hetty gives to Nell says that Deeks' father, Gordon John Brandel, was born 3/16/1969 which would make him only 8 to 10 years old when Deeks was born.

    • Goof: In the episode "Borderline", Deeks tells Kensi the last time he saw his father was Thanksgiving 6 years ago (making it 2004) and his father told him he hated him, then fired a shotgun at him. In this episode, Hetty tells Deeks that Deeks shooting his father when he was eleven was in self defense, because his father was wielding a shotgun. However, Hetty also tells Deeks his father died in 1998.

    • Goof: In the scene where Deeks first awakes, Kensi leans her arm on the bed rail and the rolling bedside chair nearly gets away from her.

  • Quotes

    • Callen: (at the hospital) The place is crawling with LAPD. You should be safe.
      Deeks: (referring to Kensi) Yeah? Who's gonna protect me from her?
      Kensi: Oh, I think he's feeling better.
      Sam: After you recover, you and I are gonna talk.
      Deeks: Hey, if you see Nurse Debbie out there, will you, uh, will you ask her when I get my sponge bath?
      Kensi: Definitely feeling better.

    • Callen: (in the warehouse) Doesn't add up. We're the targets, this is the perfect place for an ambush.
      Sam: Unless we're not the targets.
      Deeks: (in the hospital) If I'm not the target, why does Santo and his buddy come back to the hospital? (sudden realization) KENSI!!!
      Callen & Sam: (cut back to the warehouse) Kensi!

    • Deeks: Ok, so then why's he carrying a .22? It's a girl's gun.
      Kensi: I'm a girl.
      Deeks: Well, you're not a real girl. You're like - you're like Wonder Woman. And Wonder Woman wouldn't carry a .22.
      Kensi: Compliment accepted.

    • Sam: (after hearing that Deeks was shot) Let's take my car.
      Hetty: I said Mr. Deeks is in surgery. I think your particular skills would be better served at the crime scene.
      Kensi: Hetty, uh, Deeks is my second partner to get shot. So I would really like to be there...look, the last time I wasn't there for my partner, he was dead the next time I saw him. So please...okay?
      Hetty: I think your partner would want you there when he wakes up.

    • Kensi: What is it with guys and nurses?
      Deeks: Whaddaya talkin' about?...Well, they're helpful, and they're know, they do the whole sponge bath thing...
      Kensi (makes a face): Oh, come...! I should shoot you myself!

    • Deeks (Coming out of the anesthesia): Am I dead? 'Cause I feel like I should be dead.
      Kensi (starts up out of her chair in relief): Hey there! You're not getting rid of me that easily.
      Deeks: ...Do I know you?
      Kensi (grins): Deeks...
      Deeks: Not my nurse?
      Kensi (smile fading): I'm serious, Deeks.
      Deeks: ...My name is Deeks? Really?
      (Kensi, scared, turns to get a nurse)
      Deeks: I'm just kidding. I remember you, Fern.
      Kensi (relieved and annoyed): Yeah? You're funny guy? I'm gonna punch you in your bullet-hole.
      Deeks: (stretches and winces) That sounds vaguely dirty; I think I'm gonna have to tell Hetty.
