NCIS > NCIS Review: Be It Ever So Humble... > Comments Page 2
Are you kidding? How about an ok show but the worst. Tony was so annoying rolling on the floor etc. Gone was the best.
Not only is the goldfish name Kate, but the quote about staying at the women's place is the reversal of what was said in the Season 1 Episode 8 "Minimum Security" by both Kate and Gibbs. This is the episode where Tony first met Special Agent Paula Cassidy (Jessica Steen).
Not keen on Tony senior, just so sad he is so into his self that he hurts Tonyjunior so much
I wonder whatever happen to the lady who clean his home
PS - In last week's TV Guide it was said that DiNozzo's apartment was very similar to Michael Weatherly's actual digs. Apparently Michael is quite the designer and did his home himself and it's quite gorgeous.
I loved this episode - and give major kudos to the NCIS writers for listening to the fans and their wishes for getting back to basics this season with what made us love NCIS in the first place - the core characters.
Great Christmas present! Thanks!
I think Tony was so hurt by the death of his Mom followed by the chronic absence of his Dad and no friends growing up that he recreated what he knew best - a cold, elegant shelter with only a goldfish named Kate where he kept protected from any human interaction. Perhaps that will all change now with the "I love you" hugs by Jr & Sr. Merry Holidays, everyone!
Well without a doubt I thought it was the best episode so far this year. Tony's apartment allowed us a rare glimpse of Tony outside the confines of NCIS. As we look back over 10 seasons, I doubt any NCIS fan could say that is what they would have pictured his home looking like. Even with all the spoilers we could read, the writers and in particular the set designers have left us a ton of hidden messages in what is lying around. Obviously he has no desire to share this special place with a special someone yet. I mean this is a major wall he has built around himself as it appears none of the team has ever been to his place. I just wonder if that wall will begin to crumble as the season progresses. I loved the new Secret Service Agent but lets face it, we don't need another EJ. Either get Tony and Ziva together or allow us fans the pleasure of seeing Tony happy with another. I think its time he have that someone special, he is 44 years old for gosh sakes. To me the biggest questi
The one movie poster in Tony's apartment was for "Chinatown", not "Casablanca."
I'm stunned that some don't get why Tony wasn't all warm and fuzzy with Sr's visit.The man ware-housed him off to boarding schools/summer camps at age ten, and was not involved in his son's life. And we've learned in the other Sr eps that his father has never called or visited his son unless he needed something. The man always has an agenda,and he's the master manipulator. Why should Tony suddenly trust the man? And look how he betrayed his son again,bringing the neighbor to Tony's bed! Tony is the most forgiving soul, to a great fault. But I completely get why he treated his Dad the way he did. And of course he once again forgave him. I guess if you don't like a character,you can't have empathy for them. Too bad, as there's so much more to Tony than some "see".
So this is Tony's inner 'life'? A perfectly maintained, perfectly elegant and fabulously furnished apartment with a single bed? I think Tony is trying to make a point to himself about himself every time he unlocks his own door. If this apartment is the 'real' Tony, then who is the guy we've seen for ten years? Like everyone else, I loved the goldfish baby talk and that he named it Kate. I loved that the only movie poster was Casablanca and I loved the absolutely PERFECT cookies Senior made, which is a miracle all on its own. Senior always looks at the easy way out the first time and his flamboyance at being a player at his age is amusing each time it comes up, because, I for one, believe he is - not to mention Robert Wagner will be sexy to his dying day.
I feel sorry for Tony now. The poor guy cannot trust any woman he's met in the past 12 years to come inside his domain and share with him. I am sure Ziva and Abby would have been knocked sideways if they had been allowed inside.
I know that no one can be as stupid or as offensive as Michael - this has to be someone who is putting on an act, trying (and succeeding) to be the most ignorant of human beings. is there no way he can be blocked?
Lust is a sin people and it scare me how many of you are Okay with what Tony dad did hell its part of one of the 7 deadly sins What he did was wrong and he need to pay for it.

I cut and pasted your comment and didn't bother fixing your spelling and grammatical errors. You really are living in an alternate reality than the rest of us. I usually ignore your comments because they are adolescent and insulting. I don't like your language, it is vulgar and rude.
Where are the monitors for this site?
coco14: I have a twin bed, too. But it's more out of necessity: I have a small bedroom.
@Can't Eat Fish - Setting aside the personal belief that sex should be a very personal, meaningful act between two people, DiNozzo Sr. at least broke basic house-guest etiquette when he invited the neighbor into Tony's apartment without Tony's knowledge. As Tony told his father most emphatically earlier, this was Tony's private sanctuary. He'd never even invited his own team-mates and close friends to visit his place. DiNozzo Sr. had no business inviting the amorous neighbor inside for even a drink, let alone sex.
The understated (and gorgeous) elegance of Tony's apartment surprised me. It shows that the "frat-boy" image is a front, that he has, in fact, grown up. To a certain extent. The twin bed tells me that he still isn't ready to let anyone in to share his life.
Watching Tony baby-talk a goldfish (Kate!) was hilarious. With the work hours he keeps, I can see why any other pet would not be practical, though. I guess he still misses Kate.
I'll need to watch this one again, but aside from a few bits (including the final scene) that made me smile, I'm not finding myself overly fond of this one. I get that Tony's relationship with his dad is still awkward and that Senior is pretty well entrenched in his bad habits, but their interactions still felt a bit off to me, somehow. I'm hoping the last scene means they're finally going to start interacting more normally from now on.
Loved Ziva's scenes with Senior; I think she's pretty much adopted him (and vice versa). :)
Also loved seeing more of Palmer this time around. He's often overlooked, which is a shame because he is so darn loveable (not to mention hilarious). :)
@RachelW: Flush the goldfish? I love it! Very funny. I also like the idea of Tony Sr. "breaking in" (or "burning") Tony Jr's bed. And I agree: what's the big deal? It's just sex; it's not like he committed murder or some antisocial, bizarre act on it. Although I will agree that it puts a whole new spin on the idea of a father and son "sharing their DNA." Lighten up people and have some fun with it.

I not sure what viewers expect from a TV show - I watched with no expectations and loved every minute of it. NCIS never disappoints. Lighten up everyone. Oh, by the way, I am single and have a twin bed - what's the big deal?
I found this to be a mediocre episode, and I'm not sure why. I think perhaps Tony was over the top a touch when dealing with his father in the apartment. (Gorgeous apartment. Interesting that it has a step down at the entry, just like Ziva's apartment did. Um, even when people sleep alone, they often do have a double bed, so it seems a little forced that Tony only has a twin.) And clearly, Tony wanted nothing to do with the nosy neighbor, but Senior in bringing her into Tony's apartment and bedroom, he disrespected Tony's privacy (among other things!)
Loved Tony's glee when learning more about McGee from Stewie at the dump, though I'm not sure why they were pushing the Osama Bin Laden anniversary right now (apart from that almost no one remembered it).
I liked Ziva's take on the holiday season. Being Jewish, I have a lot of mixed feelings about it (Hanukkah is really a relatively small holiday and not supposed to be about gifts—not that I turn them away!).
So, this episode we have a father trying to make amends and in the end, succeeding. The next two-parter is Eli trying to do the same with Ziva, but I doubt the results will be the same, unless he dies protecting her life, and in his dying breath asks for forgiveness and gives his blessing for her new American life- I can see him dying, maybe even to protect her. But the rest- NAH!
Tony Sr is Tony Sr and he did what was expected BUT I understand "not in my bed". The Christmas show was good, not too mushy, really like a real family. We all have expectations that are not met and sometimes we have to get over them and let the love fly. In the end that what happened, the love came out.
The thing with the ring reminded me (and I really think was intended to remind people) of the scene in Seven Years in Tibet when the Brad Pitt character tracked down and returned the family watch/heirloom to his "friend" years after Pitt's character had conned his friend into trading it out of selfishness to keep the _several_ junk watches Pitt had accumulated. What it symbolized in the movie was the transformation of Pitt's character, which was what the movie was about. I think Senior's tracking down the ring and passing it on to Tony was the same idea.
Great episode. I thought it was funny that tony has a gold fish named Kate that he talks to and said was getting fat. It was great that toneys dad gave toney the ring he was suppose to get on the Christmas he was 21. Toneys place was nothing that I expected. Can't wait till the show returns.
