Gibbs: What do you need?
Bishop: For everyone to stop treating me like I'm this fragile thing that's about to break.
Gibbs: [laughs]
Bishop: What?
Gibbs: How many times a week did you check on me after Iraq? You kept showing up, even after I said I was fine.
Bishop: That's different, Gibbs. You almost died. We were all worried.
Gibbs: So's your family. They just want to make it better.
Bishop: I've been so inundated with everyone's opinions on how I should feel and what I should do, I haven't actually been able to process it myself.
Gibbs: You can't do that if you won't talk about it.

Bishop: Well. You are telling me to talk about my feelings? All right. Tell me Gibbs, how have you processed getting shot? Who is it you're opening up to?
Gibbs: Dr. Taft. I've been talking with him since the Sudan case. Everyone reaches a point, Bishop. Even me. You just got to take the first step.
Bishop: But I can't.
Gibbs: Rule #28. When you need help, ask.

Barbara: My daughter doesn't open up to many people, Gibbs. So I guess if she trust you, I should too. It is not easy knowing she's hundreds of miles away working in a dangerous job. If I had my way, she'd live here and be a teacher. Or a nun.
Gibbs: Daughters.
Barbara: That being said, it is very comforting to know she's surrounded by people who care about her.
Gibbs: I'll look after her.
Barbara: I'm counting on that.

Friedgen: You've got to understand. I didn't do anything. I'm innocent, but nobody believes me. Everyone thinks I'm guilty of murder and got off on a technicality.
Clark: The police aren't looking for anyone else, Gibbs.
Gibbs: What do you want me to do?
Friedgen: I want NCIS to arrest me for murder. I want the truth to come out. I deserve my day in court, sir. I want to be court-martialed.

Here. Sit down. You talk, I'll listen.

Abby: You forget about South Sudan, mister. You're not going anywhere.
Gibbs: Abby--
Abby: Don't Abby me. You collapsed in the squad room, Gibbs. What part of that is okay with you?
Gibbs: Were you there? I did not collapse.
Bishop: Yeah, you kind of did, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Aw swell. Where's DiNozzo? Where's McGee? Let's bring the whole gang in here.

Gibbs: I'll talk. I don't need my head examined.
Taft: Oh, no. Perish the thought. In which case, that

Taft: What are you afraid of, Gibbs?
Gibbs: Nothing.
Taft: Cut the crap. Life threw you a major league curve. You get a lot of support but at the end of the day, when your head hits the pillow, it's just you. Admitting at least that much might be half the battle. Everybody's afraid of something. Even the great Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Gibbs: Nice nails, Tim.
McGee: Thanks, boss. You know, Delilah said---
Gibbs: Of course! You can't say manicure without m-a-n.

Tony: Hey, McGee! Why don't you do the digging. That seems to be your specialty.
Gibbs: And ruin the manicure? That's not going to happen.

Gibbs: We're doing this the hard way.
Judith: I like the hard way.

Gibbs: How'd you find my house?
Osario: Former PD, remember? I could find a flea on a rat's anus.

NCIS Quotes

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.
