This is my rifle. There are many like it. This one's mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it, as I must master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.

Gibbs [voiceover]

I must fire my rifle true.

Gibbs [voiceover]

Davis: You know, the thing is, I was fighting myself. Trying to be some empty version of what I was before. But I think I need to try and find a way to be who I am now. You know what I mean?
Gibbs: Yeah.

Bishop: If we're going to work, you got any food around here?
Gibbs: I have three TV dinners.
Bishop: No. I need some food with a little bit more food in it.
Gibbs: Then let's go get some

Gibbs: How about you? Did it get weird, her and her husband?
Tony: Do you really want to know?
Gibbs: No.

Catherine: The infamous Agent Gibbs.
Gibbs: Lady, save your breath. You're barking up the wrong tree.
Taft: Oh, Gibbs?
Gibbs: Look, if you want to quit, quit, okay? I don't need you. I don't need your shrink. I don't need whoever would take your place.
Taft: Gibbs, this is Catherine. My wife.

Catherine: Look, before he comes back I just want to thank you real quick for being Cyril's friend. We've been through a lot since losing Paul. And I think this sparring you guys do? It's good for him. You're good for him, Gibbs. Very good.
Gibbs: Not as good as he's been for me.
Catherine: Not that you're going to tell him that.
Gibbs: Oh no. His head's already big enough.

Gibbs: We're wasting time.
Fornell: I wouldn't do that if I were you. SecNav's inside with her ex-husband and his girlfriend. Makes me miss Diane.

SecNav: Maybe it's time I re-evaluate my priorities.
Gibbs: You going to quit?
SecNav: If it's best for my family. You don't agree? Think I'm being ruled by fear, what?
Gibbs: I don' think it matters what I think.
SecNav: Humor me.
Gibbs: Family's important.
SecNav: That's it? No rousing pep talk? No "we need you on that wall, Madame Secretary"?
Gibbs: Disappointed?
SecNav: A little bit. Yeah.

Tony: Gibbs, I don't think Abby's heart cakes are edible.
Gibbs: They're tofu, DiNozzo. You keep chewing.

Tony: Remember Max Headroom, Gibbs?
Gibbs: Who?
Tony: From the 80s. Robot-head.

Grossman: Conveniently, I was born without empathy. With regard to Senior Chief De La Rosa's unfortunate passing, I reviewed the video and there was no proof he died of anything other the complications due to his own line of work. Secondly, even if there were foul play, there is no link between his death and our mission.
Gibbs: What is your mission?
Grossman: Our mission is classified.
