NCIS investigates a Marine's car accident and ignites some upsetting past memories for Abby as a young girl (Brighton Sharbino, pictured) on the trail of her first "case" in the January 29, 2013 episode, "Hit and Run."
Abby: Have the bad things been outweighing the good things all these years and I just ever noticed? McGee: What do you mean? Abby: All I ever wanted was to help people with the truth. And I've done that, but then bad still won sometimes. And I just want to file it away, like it never happened so I can go back to being happy. McGee: There's nothing wrong with that. Abby: Yes there is McGee because sometimes the Cutwrights and the Dunns, they just keep fighting no matter what the truth is. And sometimes Ricki never gets to see her grandpa again. If the bad outweighs the good then that means that I'm not enough. McGee: Abby listen to me... Abby: And if I'm not enough, McGee, then why even try?
