NCIS quotes are a big reason to watch the show. The one-liners delivered by the characters in jest and the lightning-quick exchanges as they pertain to the cases make for terrific viewing.
Tony: Where are we off to, guv?
Gibbs: Quantico. Keep talking with that accent, I'm gonna shoot you
I've always believed that jogging does more harm then good. The major here is an extreme example of my theory. The human body was never designed to take that kind of pounding. It's calamitous to the vertebrae, not to mention the trauma it does to the knee.Ducky
By the way, Gibbs. I like the new look.Collier
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.
Bishop: I'm going in.
Abby: Bishop, no! Don't go in there.
Bishop: I'm going to take a look around, maybe get a lead on who this woman really is.
Abby: Just wait! Gibbs and Tony are on their way over there.
Bishop: Gibbs is always telling me to take the initiative.
Tony: Thinking about visiting my ancestral home, England.
Gibbs: Why the sudden interest, DiNozzo?
Tony: I've been thinking about family a lot. I mean all I have is Senior, really. He's not getting any younger. I don't have anyone else. The way things are going I don't see kids in my future. So, I don't know. Guess I'm searching for a sense of belonging.
Take the pictures down Tim. It's rude.Tony
Mitchell: You know my dad used to say "if it matters to someone, it matters."
Gibbs: Smart guy.
Mitchell: I've been chasing Long for two years. I'm still standing here with empty pockets.
Gibbs: You asked for my help. We're going to see this through, whatever it takes. I don't forget my debts, Mitch. I owe you.
Bishop: So, you don't like Mitch because he's cool?
McGee: Look, you know sitting next to him I feel like I'm back in high school getting that one pity vote for homecoming king. And by the way that vote came from my mother. I don't know how she snuck in an illegal ballot but....
Gibbs: You think you know everything DiNozzo. You don't.
Tony: I'm just trying to protect you here.
Gibbs: You know why you got sidelined? This.
Gibbs: This isn't about me. Take care of your team. Do your job. Keep your head in the case. Keep Mitch's family tree to yourself.
Ducky: This isn't about NIS Agent Mitchell's son at all, is it? It's about Anthony. Jethro when I had my heart attack on that beach, it changed me. I had to adopt a whole new perspective. I began to see life differently and it really concerned me. Perhaps this new-found view of yours is accurate. But you must respect that others may need time to see it as you do, even Anthony.
Gibbs: Yeah, and then's the work, Duck. It's got to get done. Gotta respect that too.
