NCIS > NCIS Review: Devil's Trifecta (With the Devil Always Being the Ex) > Comments Page 3
i didn't like the ex-wife giving orders to TEAM GIBBS and gibbs NOT saying anything...and the team just following HER orders....that drove me crazy with Col. Hollis Mann....tony, tim and ziva work for GIBBS...NOT the FBI or such....and i was expecting the eppy to have RJ...that's what was listed in the TV GUIDE....and i REALLY "DON'T " like diane.
Why does ever NCIS review trun into a sex talk cant we for once talk about the case
dee: Gibbs has been married 4 times but only has 3 ex-wives. We met one ex-wife in the episode where his relationship with Col. Mann ended but I don't remember which ex she was. I don't know if we met his other ex-wife.
We still have one more ex-wife to meet. It'll probably happen sometime before it ends. I really like it when Diane shows up, though, since I know Fornell will be involved. I think it would have been really fun if Diane had been able to interact with Mike Franks before he was (STUPIDLY) killed off. Now, THAT would've been some fireworks!!
The episodes with Gibbs' ex-wives are always funny, Diane in particular. I kind of wish they would find someone for him, though. It would have to be someone who can relate to his work. Col. Mann was great and I really like his chemistry with Coast Guard Agent Borin. That defense attorney who kept calling him "mister" Gibbs instead of "agent" was excruciatingly annoying. I am sooo glad that that potential romance never went there. I didn't feel any chemistry between Gibbs and Dr Ryan, either.
I remember when he first met Col. Mann. She came to his house to discuss the case and he snuck a look at the backs of her legs. To cover-up, he turned around and she looked at his butt. Cute!
What a surprise gift this episode was! This time of year when it's easy to get so busy and stressed out, my FAVORITE show makes me laugh hysterically and then sigh at the ending. Great job.
Tommie -- Not sure if the voice has to do with the weight loss, but it definitely has changed a few times since McGee's first appearance in Season 1. Speaking of weight loss, though, I noticed that McGee's face is a little rounder now. Good -- it was just too skinny before.
To quote Fornell on finding ex-wife Diane on the sofa with McGee, "Holy 4th of July weenie roast..!" I almost choked to death laughing so hard. Joe Spano was in (very) rare form in this very funny episode! He just kept knocking off one-liners like Pop Tarts. Same for Sean Murray / McGee. When Diane was begging for a hug from McGee, I was screaming at the TV "NO!!! Don't trust her, McGee!" The rest is history. Kudos go to the writer(s) of "Devil's Trifecta." You nailed it, guys - thanks for the early Christmas present!
Someone mentioned above McGees voice change and I was wondering about that too. Although I've noticed that Gibbs voice has changed as well, but it's not heard as often as McGee...something they're doing maybe?
Besides that I really did love this episode. One of the funniest episodes from NCIS, that's for sure.
They should really work in Gibbs fourth ex wife though, you know the one who we don't know the name of.
What a lame storyline... hardly woth the TiVo time !
I have asked three reviewers about magees voice Change and no one responds. Anyone else out there think it has to do with his weight loss?
I loved how Gibbs put on the NCIS hat before saying, "I'm not alone."
Anyone notice the sweatshirt Gibbs was wearing in the last scene? It was old and torn, it had a small handprint and "Papa" painted on it. We know from flashbacks that Kelly called Gibbs "Daddy" but I think Kelly made this for Gibbs.
@elizmom: I don't think we have met all of Gibb's ex-wives. He has four and I only know the name of three: Shannon, Stephanie, and Diane. Who was the other one? What episode was she in. Also, Diane has been in only one other episode, last year's "Devil's Triangle." Stephanie has been featured in one, and of'course we have seen Shannon many times.
"Holy Fourth of July wienie roast...what am I looking at?"
"The two of you need to stick a pin in it!!!!!!!"
When they asked what was with the fish I was also watching an episode of Hawaii five O the one with the diamond smuggling so I thought hey maybe their smuggling something inside the fish and I was right I just didn't think of it being phones and DVDs.
Diane's tendency for nicknames came out in an earlier episode when she called Gibbs "Mr. Woodchuck" and McGee "McCaulay Culkin." I guess she likes nicknames.
Was I the only one missing a movie reference to a movie where they were smuggling money inside fish? (Was that "Turner and Hooch" maybe? I can't remember.)
Love this show no matter how good or bad the episode may be. I just wish that they would give McGee a girlfriend already instead of him being the ultimate loner all the time. Also hopefully they are kidding about making Gibbs, Fennell and their ex wife a trifecta too often.
For those that dont know the case was base on a real life event and has happen many times in our country
Just glad Tim was the butt of the joke and not Tony this time around ...thought the ep was stupid, really not funny at all, just lame .... surely, we can have good personal stories and NOT keep bringing Diane back into the mix. Hopefully, that's the last we've seen of her...
The case wasn't all that great, however, the light heartedness of this episode made up for that. I think it was warranted after the seriousness of the last few episodes.....
I loved the zingers from Fornell. And the McGee ribbing was priceless......
It was a funny episode with McGee and Diane sleeping on the couch and Gibbs just looking at them and when Fornell cane in got all jealous
Gibbs looking at McGee and Diane on the couch was just too funny! Good McGee stuff finally. It's been a while.
A stupid episode. Nobody was acting like they usually do. Why would all the women side with the crazy ex?
