Popular Leroy Jethro Gibbs Quotes
[smiling] Tobias. You look awful.
Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.

Tony: A few months ago, you asked me what I really wanted. If I wanted to be an agent anymore, catch bad guys. Now I know the answer.
Gibbs: I had a feeling.
Tony: The Gibbs' gut?
Gibbs: No. You. Seems to me you've known for a while. Only now, you've got a daughter to think of. You can't only think about yourself anymore.
Tony: Evidently we have a daughter. Me and Ziva. She knew me better than I thought. When McGee called, something hit me. I got this feeling, something I'd never felt before. In that moment, I didn't want Trent Kort dead. All I wanted to do was take care of Tali. Everything that she had in her life was gone.
Gibbs: Except you.
Tony: Except me. I'm it. I'm everything to that little girl now. And I've never been anybody's everything before.
Gibbs: But you showed up.
Tony: Yes I did. In all kinds of ways. But that's it. I'm done now. I'm going to take Tali to Israel, look for some answers. Then I'm going to take her to Paris. Ziva loves Paris.
Gibbs: You gotta do what you gotta do.
Tony: And you gotta believe what you gotta believe. [holds out his right hand as if to offer Gibbs a handshake] I'd say thank you but it doesn't quite cover it, boss.
Gibbs: [hugs him] You take care of yourself and your family, DiNozzo.
Tony: Copy that, boss.
Ducky: First Ziva, and now a child?
Gibbs: Not a typical day.
