Like the episode very much. I was sure Ducky was going to step in when Gibbs and Tony strong armed the boy in autopsy. Didn't see the gay thing coming but handled well. I like Dornagan and I hope he has a recurring role. I also liked Ducky's summary when he was talking about the incidence of heart attacks in men. The plot line with a pace maker being controlled remotely was deliciously sinister. Tony seems a little too desperate for my taste - I wish they would tone that down a bit.

I absolutely love to watch NCIS; BUT, I don't need to be "entertained" by a homosexual. Certainly hope this guy's sexual orientation doesn't become part of the storyline(s). Not my idea of entertainment. I don't need it, don't like it, etc. This could potentially be a "deal-breaker" for me.

I thought I am in minority , but then I saw the rating for this episode and realized that ,thank God , I'm not . The lowest for the season. Well, it was clear from promo's first few seconds - we are getting our aging playboy Tony back. I was having Glee flashbacks during the episode. Don't get me wrong, it's not about gay Dorney...it's fine by me, don't really care about his sex life. It's mostly about of low level of "funny" jokes.... Where is Tony who wanted to find love ? Even though I have to say I like storyline. I hope creators will continue the story about arm dealer.

I love this show. I am a huge McGee fan and I loved his rule #1. Never lie to Gibbs. But he didn't have to use it. Loved how Dornaget has a crush for tony and said it had to be Tony to sign it and McGee signs it. Would have loved to have heard/seen a little of Ziva's speech. Liked how they handled the gay issue. All in all great episode. Like always I will rewatch it cuz I did miss some things near the end but I always rewatch them.

I have never watched this show only bits of it because i don't want to see Gibbs hit his on people on the back of the head for a joke. Mark Harmon we know you'er pretty you just don't have to be a complete Ass...

i can tell you as far as a heart racing even with a pacemaker: it DOES happen....it happens to my dad...he has a ICD in his chest....i would say, the guy in this eppy, had a BAD one....because it aparently was NOT catching it right.

i agree on who tptb are turning tony into a JOKE....it's getting old...i want to see the SMART AGENT....the cop that made gibbs WANT him at ncis & ON his team, and what has KEPT him on gibbs' team all these years....joking around to loosen the tension, during a HARD case is 1 thing....but, being the BUTT of everyone's joke is NOT.

i liked how tim handled the probie...and the gay issue....speaking of the probie: where was he sitting in the bullpen?...just wondering.

Having a similar gizmo in my chest I like how they knocked the guy off. I find it an amazing bit of technology that the device can be regulated like it is. Yes, 400 beats per minute is fast, they put mine in because my resting heart rate was 175 beats a minute.
Good episode all around, though I too would like to have seen a snippet of the speech using her "ineresting" use of our language.

I am with DCB, in that because I worked as a nurse, I, too wondered why any medical device company would manufacture a pacemaker that could ramp up to 400 beats per minute when that would kill the patient...it just doesn't make sense. Still, it was an entertaining episode, and I am apparently the only one who found Dornegat annoying as heck, because he seemed so stupid and totally clueless as to what it takes to be a field agent...he just doesn't seem to have any special skills or talents to bring to the team, and he's not handsome or good looking enough to pull it off on charm, so I would rather that he not become a regular on the show. I would LOVE it if Jamie Lee Curtis did become a regular, because she's a delightful actress, but not this bungling gay guy.(And no, I am not a homophobe, I have several gay friends, I just don't see the point of this character)

I would have liked to see a closing scene where Tony finds out that the girl he lusted after during this case turned out to be a Russian agent; that would have made him go limp.

Meanwhile, exactly how old was the guy who was hired to hack the pacemaker? He looked about 12.
