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.

Vance: We're going to get the bastard.
Gibbs: You checking up on me Leon? I'm fine.
Vance: Are you, Gibbs?
Gibbs: He had a chance to kill me and he didn't.
Vance: Cause he wants you to torture yourself like you're doing right now.
Gibbs: I'm not going to give him that satisfaction.

Bishop: So where do you go from here?
Goode: I know it sounds crazy but I would like to go back to Syria; back to the orphanage. There are so many children being helped there. But I know I can't go back until the country's stablized.

Hegarty: Disaffected young western males, here and in Europe are targeted by terrorist recruiters. Most are troubled kids, seeking redemption and violent action.
Vance: And they buy into jihad?
Hegarty: Media-savvy militants in Iraq and Syria post graphic photos and slip recruitment videos on Facebook and Twitter. Reach right into a kid's bedroom. Parents have no idea what's going on. This is Cleavon Smith, a former Detroit gang member, born again Muslim, who was known as Abu Hussein when he died last week on the killing fields of Syria's civil war.
Gibbs: Do we know how many Americans are fighting in Syria?
Hegarty: About a dozen. We can stop them from returning. It's the ones we don't know about that are the concern, like this Nasry you've uncovered.

Bishop: Sarah Goode is....incredible. I mean after everything she's been through she's handling it so well.
Ducky: And your concern is...?
Bishop: It's all going to hit her later.
Ducky: Well some people don't begin to experience the symptoms until later. It's called delayed onset post traumatic stress disorder. And it affects almost a quarter of PTSD cases.
Bishop: Sarah wants to go back to the orphanage in Syria.
Ducky: That would be a big mistake. It could trigger...
Bishop: A breakdown.
Ducky: Yeah.

Tony: Hey. You haven't said a word to me since we left the office.
McGee: I've been trying to figure out what you're up to.
Tony: Me?
McGee: Yeah. You've been acting so, you know, nice. You haven't abused me in days.
Tony: If you would like me to abuse you, I will abuse you.

McGee: You're seeing someone.
Tony: Huh. I wish.
McGee: Oh please, come on. Dog lady was hitting on you like crazy, she's super cute and...
Tony: Twenty-two years old.
McGee: Since when has that ever stopped you?

Zoe: I'm up here to return something that you left at my place when you rushed out this morning.
Tony: Mmm. Yeah. Well I was a little light-headed. What did I leave?
Zoe: These. *hands him a set of handcuffs*
Tony: Oh boy. You found the key. I had you locked up pretty good.
Zoe: Yeah. You did. Um, are we keeping us a secret?
Tony: Yeah. Uh, listen. This place is a henhouse. It practically runs on gossip and I do not want to be topic number one. And we're doing pretty good in this relationship, right?
Zoe: Right.
Tony: I don't want to spoil it.
Zoe: Okay.
Tony: Okay. Yeesh. You're very dangerous.

Tobias. You need somebody to talk to, we got a lot in common.

Vance

Zoe: Relax, Spider. They know about us.
Tony: Who knows?
Everyone: We all know.
Gibbs: It's about time. Geeze.
Tony: How did you find out?
McGee: We're trained investigators, my friend.
Zoe: And in honor of us coming out, Tony is going to buy everyone drinks.
Tony: I am?
Zoe: Yeah. You are. C'mon. Get your coat.
Tony: Yeah, boss.

You make me a promise. When you find this monster, I get a piece of him.

Fornell

Palmer: Gibbs is going for a checkup. And his doctor told him to avoid caffeine for seventy-two hours.
Bishop: That seems...unwise.
Tony: That could kill him.
Palmer: Or worse! The guy's scary enough when he's properly medicated. I can't imagine what it'd be like with caffeine withdrawal. I can only imagine someone taking King Kong's bananas. I'm not going to turn around.
Gibbs: Good idea.

Gibbs: What are you doing here?
Diane: I brought her. You two need to talk. And we all know that's not something you're interested in.
Gibbs: Got that right.
Diane: So I suggested that---
Gibbs: Ambush me at a crime scene so I can't get away?

NCIS quotes are not to be missed. The crime solving is great and all, but the one-liners from the characters - and Tony's movie quotes, and Gibbs' one-word zingers - are often some of the most memorable parts of a given episode. Be it simple or profound, the show has a way of amping up the drama when it matters most and using levity to keep things grounded. NCIS quotes cover the full spectrum and then some.

NCIS Quotes

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.

Cabot: As you know, the Navy is trying harder than ever to eradicate sexual assault in their ranks.
Gibbs: Was Ensign Tate a rape suspect?
Cabot: Right to the point, as always. No Gibbs, Tate was a second-party complainant. He reported an assault on behalf of a friend.
