NCIS Season Premiere Recap: "Truth or Consequences"

at . Comments

Last night's season premiere of NCIS brought agents DiNozzo and McGee to the Horn of Africa in search of one of two things: their vanished colleague Niva David, or if they could not find her, vengeance against the people who presumably killed her.

The episode, which picked up three months after last season's finale, opened with DiNozzo being interrogated in Somalia by a terrorist mastermind, Salim Ulman.

How did he get there and did he escape? Is Niva alive? Via alternating flashbacks and present action sequences, we learn the answers in "Truth of Consequences."

Tony in Trouble

Here are some of our favorite NCIS quotes from last night ...

Gibbs: Is that it?
Tony: Yeah. What else is there?
Gibbs: Well, maybe we send a couple of agents. You know, put some eyes on the target. Change the circumstances.
Tony: And you can sell that to Vance?
Gibbs: Oh yeah. | permalink
Ziva: These people are killers, Tony.
Tony: That's why we have to stay alive long enough to not get dead.
Ziva: That would involve getting rescued.
Tony: Yes it would. | permalink
Abby: It's weird Ziva hasn't contacted me. I mean it would be one thing if she simply hadn't picked up the phone and called me, but I've tried to contact her several different ways.
McGee: Psychics, crystals or telepathy? | permalink
Tony: Our team leader is the fearless special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Former gunnery Sergeant, marine sniper, coffee aficionado, and functional mute. | permalink
Salim: [re: truth serum] It will not take long for it to start working.
Tony: You're gonna be dead soon, you know. | permalink
Ducky: We do not guess, Timothy. Nor do we assume, presume, guess-ture or prognosticate. | permalink
Salim: DiNozzo. It's an Italian name.
Tony: An educated man.
Salim: I got my B.S. from Yale University.
Tony: [scoffs] I got my B.S. in the streets ... Yale. You guys got a lousy football team. | permalink

NCIS Quotes

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
Gibbs: You wouldn't feel the way you feel, right now, if you weren't ready.

I am an NCIS special agent. My duty is to serve and protect the United States, and our Navy and Marine Corps across global boundaries. I recognize my badge as a symbol of authority and public trust. I will live my life above reproach, understanding my actions reflect upon my fellow special agents, and our agency.
