Leon Vance Quotes
Major: You know what I think? This whole is just some inter-service rivalry.
Vance: You're wrong there, Major. NCIS is a civilian agency. We don't report to anyone in uniform. We will follow every possible lead, wherever it may take us. Get Waters over here, or we'll drag him in in handcuffs.
Vance: So, why is the victim denying it now?
Cabot: Take your pick, sir. Shame, fear, loss of peer status.
Vance: Special Agent Barkley is sending additional manpower to Louisiana to assist. An interrogation expert, to be exact.
Pride: Don't need one. Agent Lasalle and I can question suspects just fine.
Vance: Recent flaws in your technique would suggest otherwise.
Pride: I only punched that XO once.
Vance: Once was enough.
Bishop: FBI, CIA, NSA - they'd all refer you to me. I am the Parsa expert.
Vance: Just how long has NSA had you on him?
Bishop: Six years, director.
Gibbs: Excuse me?
Gibbs: What are SecNav's orders?
Vance: Now that we have Parsa - press him for intel. Enough to disable his entire terrorist network.
Gibbs: How hard?
Vance: Whatever it takes.
McGee: Delilah? This is not a good time.
Delilah: Well I'm not here to see you.
McGee: Then who?
Vance: Me. If that's okay with you, Special Agent McGee.
Vance: As far as my children are concerned, their mother's father is long dead. Out of respect to Jackie I intend to keep it that way.
Addison: I suppose so. All I can ask is that you might change your mind. I can pay for their college tuition if you would reconsider.
Vance: My children are not for sale.
Vance: You got regrets, that's on you. But it's not up to me and my kids to make them go away.
Addison: Ain't that the truth. I apologize, Leon. You have yourself a happy holiday.
Palmer: I'm so not having kids.
Abby: Okay Jimmy. That does it. Excuse us, director, but something has gotten into Mr. Palmer, and I would like to get it out now.
Vance: Well don't let me interfere.
Porter: Is this another dramatic touch, McGee?
McGee: Not exactly, Madame Secretary. Network security detected an unauthorized electronic transmission. Everything shuts down automatically.
Porter: So that means someone's trying to hack in from the outside.
McGee: No. Lockdown only happens if the attack's internal.
Vance: The threat's in this room.
Vance: What's his ultimate target?
Gibbs: I don't know.
Vance: I've got to notify Homeland, FBI and the ATF.
Vance: Hang on. Agent McGee isn't going anywhere.
Vance: Agent McGee and the rest of his team's presence has just been requested at the White House. His clever strategy just saved countless lives and a multi-billion dollar weapons system.
Gibbs: Yeah we'll get back to you on that, Eugene.
