Silva: We were all concerned!
Torres: Oh, yeah, the guys you sent to kill me looked real worried.

You're like the Goldilocks of NCIS!

Quinn [to Gibbs]

I love this sofa. It's like being hugged by a microfiber cloud!


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.

Abby: Hey Tony.
McGee: Vance got a call.
Tony: Ziva. Are we sure?
McGee: I'm so sorry, Tony.

Orli: Actually, I'm here for a much more important reason. Something far more personal. Bring in Tali.
Vance: Wasn't that Ziva's sister?
Orli: Her namesake, yes.
Tony: Whose namesake?
Orli: You may have heard there was one survivor pulled from the farmhouse. Her room was in a corridor not destroyed by the fire. Tali is Ziva's daughter. And your daughter, Tony.

Tony: If I had known she was pregnant, I would have been there in a second.
Orli: Which is precisely why she didn't tell you. She didn't want to disrupt your life any more than she already had.
Tony: That was not her decision to make.
Orli: You know better than anyone how fiercely independent Ziva was. She did not need a man to complete her. She was quite comfortable and confidant raising Tali on her own.
Tony: Without ever telling me.

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

Palmer: Hey, are you coming back to work?
Tony: Of course I am. Why wouldn't I/
Palmer: I don't know. You're a single dad now, Tony. An agent in the line of fire. Wasn't sure you'd want to juggle.

[smiling] Tobias. You look awful.


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.
