Are you kidding? How about an ok show but the worst. Tony was so annoying rolling on the floor etc. Gone was the best.

Not only is the goldfish name Kate, but the quote about staying at the women's place is the reversal of what was said in the Season 1 Episode 8 "Minimum Security" by both Kate and Gibbs. This is the episode where Tony first met Special Agent Paula Cassidy (Jessica Steen).

PS - In last week's TV Guide it was said that DiNozzo's apartment was very similar to Michael Weatherly's actual digs. Apparently Michael is quite the designer and did his home himself and it's quite gorgeous.

I loved this episode - and give major kudos to the NCIS writers for listening to the fans and their wishes for getting back to basics this season with what made us love NCIS in the first place - the core characters.
Great Christmas present! Thanks!

I think Tony was so hurt by the death of his Mom followed by the chronic absence of his Dad and no friends growing up that he recreated what he knew best - a cold, elegant shelter with only a goldfish named Kate where he kept protected from any human interaction. Perhaps that will all change now with the "I love you" hugs by Jr & Sr. Merry Holidays, everyone!

Well without a doubt I thought it was the best episode so far this year. Tony's apartment allowed us a rare glimpse of Tony outside the confines of NCIS. As we look back over 10 seasons, I doubt any NCIS fan could say that is what they would have pictured his home looking like. Even with all the spoilers we could read, the writers and in particular the set designers have left us a ton of hidden messages in what is lying around. Obviously he has no desire to share this special place with a special someone yet. I mean this is a major wall he has built around himself as it appears none of the team has ever been to his place. I just wonder if that wall will begin to crumble as the season progresses. I loved the new Secret Service Agent but lets face it, we don't need another EJ. Either get Tony and Ziva together or allow us fans the pleasure of seeing Tony happy with another. I think its time he have that someone special, he is 44 years old for gosh sakes. To me the biggest question of the night not answered was, What were all the books and notbooks and folders on the table for? Is he taking courses in school? I guess we will just have to wait and see what great things are ahead for Tony and NCIS. Still the best show in rerun or first run on the air.

The one movie poster in Tony's apartment was for "Chinatown", not "Casablanca."

I'm stunned that some don't get why Tony wasn't all warm and fuzzy with Sr's visit.The man ware-housed him off to boarding schools/summer camps at age ten, and was not involved in his son's life. And we've learned in the other Sr eps that his father has never called or visited his son unless he needed something. The man always has an agenda,and he's the master manipulator. Why should Tony suddenly trust the man? And look how he betrayed his son again,bringing the neighbor to Tony's bed! Tony is the most forgiving soul, to a great fault. But I completely get why he treated his Dad the way he did. And of course he once again forgave him. I guess if you don't like a character,you can't have empathy for them. Too bad, as there's so much more to Tony than some "see".

So this is Tony's inner 'life'? A perfectly maintained, perfectly elegant and fabulously furnished apartment with a single bed? I think Tony is trying to make a point to himself about himself every time he unlocks his own door. If this apartment is the 'real' Tony, then who is the guy we've seen for ten years? Like everyone else, I loved the goldfish baby talk and that he named it Kate. I loved that the only movie poster was Casablanca and I loved the absolutely PERFECT cookies Senior made, which is a miracle all on its own. Senior always looks at the easy way out the first time and his flamboyance at being a player at his age is amusing each time it comes up, because, I for one, believe he is - not to mention Robert Wagner will be sexy to his dying day.

I feel sorry for Tony now. The poor guy cannot trust any woman he's met in the past 12 years to come inside his domain and share with him. I am sure Ziva and Abby would have been knocked sideways if they had been allowed inside.

I also really enjoyed McGee's MIT friend finding his 'calling' in garbage. So much for the fast track all MIT grads are supposed to be on.

Lovely episode without too much gooey holiday schmaltz.
