Gibbs: It's a classified government file!
Fornell: I'm a classified government guy!

Fornell: Get your hands off that light switch! You'll ruin the mood.
Gibbs: "The mood"? We gonna make out? What?
Fornell: I'm just trying to express my appreciation for your hospitality and friendship.
Gibbs: You wanna show your appreciation? Stop wearing my clothes!

Dr. Grace [about Quinn's prying]: She's new, Gibbs, but you have her well-trained! What's next? You gonna take me downstairs to your torture room and try to squeeze something outta me?
Gibbs: Sure. What's your preference? Stock a little waterboard, a little bamboo under the fingernails?

Bishop: Gibbs is famous for coming in just before the weekend starts and saying--
Gibbs: Grab your gear!

Torres: He knew we were gonna meet here.
Gibbs: How do you know that?
Torres: Because he planted a bomb under my seat. I activated the pressure trigger when I sat down.
Gibbs [sees the bomb and grins]: And you're waiting until now to tell me that?
Torres: Well, I was in the middle of something. How does it look?
Gibbs: Hm, like it may hurt for a second!
Torres: You are enjoying this.
Gibbs: Oh, yeah. A little.

Quinn: Left behind some scorned women, huh, Gibbs?
Gibbs: I have no comment.

Tony: I can't stay here.
Gibbs: We know that.
Tony: If that's Ziva, I gotta go.
Gibbs: We know. McGee, get him a plane.

Doctor: The bullets narrowly missed his spine but still cause significant nerve damage.
Emily: Are you saying he's paralyzed?
Doctor: Nothing permanent. We anticipate problems with his right arm and leg. He faces extensive rehab, and there'll be tough times ahead, I'm afraid..
Emily: [crying] Been there, done that.
Gibbs: Nothing he can't handle.

Vance: Gibbs. Where's Agent DiNozzo.
Gibbs: Headed to Israel.
McGee: His plane leaves in a few hours.
Abby: What is it, director?
Vance: I just got a call, from Tel Aviv.

Ducky: First Ziva, and now a child?
Gibbs: Not a typical day.

[smiling] Tobias. You look awful.

Tony: A few months ago, you asked me what I really wanted. If I wanted to be an agent anymore, catch bad guys. Now I know the answer.
Gibbs: I had a feeling.
Tony: The Gibbs' gut?
Gibbs: No. You. Seems to me you've known for a while. Only now, you've got a daughter to think of. You can't only think about yourself anymore.
Tony: Evidently we have a daughter. Me and Ziva. She knew me better than I thought. When McGee called, something hit me. I got this feeling, something I'd never felt before. In that moment, I didn't want Trent Kort dead. All I wanted to do was take care of Tali. Everything that she had in her life was gone.
Gibbs: Except you.
Tony: Except me. I'm it. I'm everything to that little girl now. And I've never been anybody's everything before.
Gibbs: But you showed up.
Tony: Yes I did. In all kinds of ways. But that's it. I'm done now. I'm going to take Tali to Israel, look for some answers. Then I'm going to take her to Paris. Ziva loves Paris.
Gibbs: You gotta do what you gotta do.
Tony: And you gotta believe what you gotta believe. [holds out his right hand as if to offer Gibbs a handshake] I'd say thank you but it doesn't quite cover it, boss.
Gibbs: [hugs him] You take care of yourself and your family, DiNozzo.
Tony: Copy that, boss.

NCIS Quotes

[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.

McGee

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.
