Tuesdays 8:00 PM on CBS

Abby Sciuto is the forensic specialist on NCIS.

She is, in the words of NCIS agent Tony DiNozzo, "a paradox wrapped in an oxymoron smothered in contradictions in terms."

Sciuto's gothic style of dress and her interest in death and the supernatural enigmatically contrast with a generally positive, hyperactive demeanor.

Abby is depicted as fiercely loyal to her team and even considers them family, which frequently leaves her distressed when danger arises on the show.

Abby has at least 11 tattoos on her neck, arms, back, ankle and other places. She is often seen with her stuffed hippo named "Bert" that makes farting noises when squeezed.

Born to deaf parents, she likes her music loud. Like boss Gibbs, with whom she is close, Abby enjoys caffeine, primarily in the form of a fictional drink called "Caf-Pow."

Sciuto graduated with full honors from LSU with a triple major in sociology, criminology and psychology.

She has her master's degree from Georgia State University in criminology and forensic science.

Abby's unusual outlook on life comes into play often in the series - always luckily for us!

Abby Sciuto Quotes

Abby: I only take orders from one person: Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Unless he asks me to do it, it doesn't get done!

Gibbs: No costume this year?
Abby: After last year's Jonas Brothers debacle, Vance banned costumes. McGee? Skinny jeans? Didn't work.

Pauley I started watching NCIS because of your character and then I went to a convention for my church and saw that you are for imaginenomalaria and I am once again inspired to try to tell you that I admire you and your character and no I am not trying to stalk you Ive been married for 23 years and wont throw that for anyone but it would be terrific if we could meet sometime I would like to pick your brain for a book I am writing


Dear Pauley, I would love to know where they get your clothes that you wear on NCIS. I absolutely love the skull and cross bones - sweaters, shirts, socks, et al. they even found some appropriate for Christmas and other holidays.
Please let me know. Love your character.
Janice Grim


Abby, I love your character... undertones of confusion interspersed with absolute brilliance... plus... cute as hell... No, not a stalker, just love the character to bits... Might I get a hug someday? Take care, and don't forget to polish them boots! Loads of hugs, just in case Pauley :o)

Abby, give me a break. Wanting to be stuck in an elevator with Michael Obama. That is a good way to loose viewers. What were the writers thinking? Who ever heard of her five years ago?
Bad move on the show's part!

I love NCIS my favorites are Gibbs and Abbie.



You are my go to girl that gets the job done I love everything about you and your character. I understand you are a lot like Abby, what I like is you inspire young women to get into the fornesic science you are to be looked up to for the warrior you are. Keep fighting the good fight your admirer from afar.


I love NCIS. I watch it everyday. Abby is my favorite character on the show. People at work say that " You look like Abby from NCIS" I guess it is how I do my hair and wear the black and make up. I like it that way. Its me being comfortable the only way I can be. I love this show and I hope it stays and never dies...


Just saw a rerun of NCIS episode in which Gibbs' military service number is written in the blood of a murder victiom.....turns out it was done by the son of the woman in Columbia that saved Gibbs life 18 years prior. Abby compares that message to Gibbs to the Bat Signal appearing in the sky to call Batman for help. She goes on to mention an actor that portrayed both Batman's mentor (don't know which movie she meant; might have meant the TV show) and Obi One's mentor in Star Wars, probably in one of the prequels. I didn't catch that actor's name; got me curious. Any help?
