Gibbs: New phone?
Fornell: I am no longer a Luddite.
Gibbs: Since when?
Fornell: Since now. I still respect your beliefs, Gibbs, but they are no longer my own.

Gibbs: Okay. [laughs] Who is she? [Shuts down elevator] The phone. The plans. Are you dating again, Tobias?
Fornell: Okay. And if I am?
Gibbs: Just tell me.
Fornell: Okay. My sex life--
Gibbs: Oh God, just -- [turns elevator back on]

Vance: What was the operation in '02?
Bishop: Juniper Strike.
Vance: And?
Bishop: We only know as much as this top sheet says. While the list wasn't classified, the operation it refers to is, and since it's a joint operation, we'll need clearance from British SAS.
Vance: Gibbs?
Gibbs: I'd rather not wait, director.
Vance: Me neither. Go.
Bishop: Just to be clear, you want us to hack into the case files.
Vance: [nods]

Gibbs: How many have you got?
Fornell: None.
Gibbs: Doesn't sound like it.
Fornell: Well. I can't get it up.
Gibbs: Aw geeze.....
Fornell: No. The nerve. I can't get up the nerve to go out with them. I should start this all again.
Gibbs: Please. Don't.

Did you happen to catch her name, DiNozzo, or is that not the way dates work anymore?

Gibbs: How did you meet her the first time?
Tony: I met her in a bar.
Gibbs: Let me guess. She approached you.
Tony: They usually do, but...I was a target.
Gibbs: An easy one!

Gibbs: So listen. Stretch. This isn't a game. You've got one shot at your friend. No fooling around.
Tall Tony: Don't worry. I'm an actor.
Gibbs: Yeah. That's what I'm worried about.

Gibbs: You said you were looking for a project. Go find her.
Senior: You serious?
Gibbs: You got something better to do?

Tony: My father brought a straight off the street bag lady into my apartment, rusty old shopping cart and all. And dad said that it was your idea, Gibbs?
Gibbs: I'm glad he found her.

Vance: Well, at this point we can't charge either one of them. Whoever we brought to trial...her defense would be that the other one did it.
Gibbs: I agree with you. There's so much reasonable doubt, a jury could never convict.

You want to know what I got? I got this room. This sad, little borrowed room. It's mine. So, I'm telling you to get out.


Davis: How long were planning on sitting out there?
Gibbs: Probably sleep better out there than I did last night.
Davis: Why, insomnia?
Gibbs: No. Couch is old and the spring popped through. Kept me up.
Davis: What you doing on the couch? Wife got you in the doghouse?
Gibbs: No, it's nothing like that. The bedroom was ours, you know? And, well she passed away.
Davis: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

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.

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
