NCIS returns on September 20. Look for Tomlin to show up some time in the early fall.

“We are very excited to have the gifted Lily Tomlin join us to play McGee’s grandmother,” said Gary Glasberg. ”We know she’ll bring extraordinary heart and pathos and humor to the show and the cast and crew are thrilled to have her.  But don’t let the word grandmother fool you.  Penelope is sharp as a tack and we’re about to learn some things about McGee’s family that have never been revealed.”

NCIS Quotes

[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.

McGee

Abby: It's okay. Breena's fine. Breathe. Good. Now hurry up and get to the hospital because Breena is in labor.
McGee: Jimmy? Did you hear what she said? She just said Breena's having a baby. I think you broke him.
