Cook: What are you doing?
Abby: Re-negotiating. This is a canister of DX7 gas. If I release it in this room, we'll all be dead in ten seconds.
Brown: What...that's not a smoke bomb?
Abby: Put down your weapons.
Cook: You're bluffing.
Abby: You're going to kill the hostages no matter what I do. No witnesses - I heard you say it. If my life can save theirs, I'm down, 100%.

Brown: Why aren't we dead?
Abby: 'Cause there's no such thing as DX7 poison gas. I actually just made an airborne incapacitating agent.
Cook: I knew you were bluffing. I knew she was bluffing.

Gibbs, this is Janice. She's my new friend. She helped saved the lives of the hostages. And you can arrest her now, cause she's working with the bad guys.

Abby

Gibbs: Are you doing okay?
Abby: I was this close to violating one of my most sacred principles.
Gibbs: But you didn't. That bomb was fake.
Abby: That's because I knew you were coming. I just knew it. But what if I didn't? What would I have done?
Gibbs: You'd have done the right thing, Abs. Whatever that is. I don't know much, but I know that.

Bishop: Want me to alert building security?
Gibbs: No. I'll shoot him.

Klugman: I came here to clear my conscience. The man wouldn't even give me a chance.
Vance: Well now that you've done so publicly, why don't you let me explain myself. By getting rid of a dirty agent ten years ago I was protecting my own. And I will continue to protect them. So I suggest you stay away from this building and the honest agents that work here or any problem you have with me will get much much bigger.
Klugman: I was here to help, but....you really are just a politician now, huh?
Vance: Go.

Tony: So the illegal sports book was yours then?
Carver: No idea what you mean. But I'd love to know who exactly you heard it from.
Tony: Well I bet you would, but then, I have a feeling that the same thing would happen to him that happened to the last guy who pissed you off? So....

Vance: Klugman what the hell are you doing here? Who did this to you?
Klugman: You did this....Director.

Vance: It's a lie.
Porter: Of course it is, but this is Washington. How much mud-slinging will you and the agency endure before we can prove it?
Vance: Right. What option do we have?
Porter: Well per Klugman's lawyer he drops this whole thing if you step down

Porter: Leon, there are no good options here. You've been in this chair for longer than your past two predecessors combined. Maybe it's time for a change. Maybe you write a book; go fishing. Spend time with your kids.
Vance: And what kind of example does running away set for them?

Vance: You're the boss, boss. Although when I asked to tag along I thought this was going to be more like, you know, Butch and Sundance. You're the quick-draw, I'm the brains. Kind of co-equals.
Gibbs: Yeah, we're not.
Vance: So what, I'm Robin to your Batman?

Gibbs: You said you had nothing to prove.
Vance: Damn right.
Gibbs: Well you're not acting like it. The job changes, Leon. We change, for better or for worse.

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.
