Vance: Hang on. Agent McGee isn't going anywhere.
Eugene: Director.
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.

Gibbs: Look don't be a dumbass. You keep Agent Fornell in your hip pocket or you're a dead man.
Mendez: For freedom? I'd hardly be the first to die. But very well.

Gibbs: Can you beam this up to McGee?
Abby: Well I can't beam it Captain Kirk, but I can send it up, sure.
Gibbs: Captain who?

SecNav Porter: Agent Gibbs, with your reputation, I expected Parsa to be disposed of long before now. So, do tell me, please: what sort of help am I not providing?
Gibbs: Influence.

At least tell me, what is so important that one assignment can trump a career of rule-breaking?

Parsons

Parsons: I'll get to the bottom of this.
Morrow: There's a line in the sand, Parsons. Don't cross it.

I'm positive that NCIS is being set up. Sending you out here was not about Lieutenant McBride. It was about separating you from your team.

Parsons

Tobias: Hard to know who to trust anymore.
Gibbs: Has it ever been easy, Tobias?

Franks: Over the years we do some things, some good, some bad. Decisions that help one person can hurt another.
Gibbs: Damned if you do.
Franks: In the end, we make sacrifices, live with them. Things happen sometimes that are out of our control.

Chegwidden: According to IG records your team isn't just sending people to jail, they're sending them to the morgue.
Gibbs: Yeah, sometimes.
Chegwidden: Ari Haswari, Agent Michelle Lee, Payloma Reynosa, Harper Dearing.
Gibbs: There was no other choice.
Chegwidden: There's always a choice. The question is: were their deaths absolutely necessary?
Gibbs: Nothing I wouldn't do again.
Chegwidden: Please tell me you're not going to say that in court.
Gibbs: I won't be in court.

Ziva: Gibbs you cannot do this alone. You have to let us help.
Gibbs: Hey - it is not your job!
Ziva: It is not about my job. This is about my family!

Vance: Tom Morrow may have a solve. We pull it off this could all go away.
Gibbs: For all of us?
Vance: Clean slate.
Gibbs: What's the catch?
Vance: It might kill you.
Gibbs: So could a bag of clams.
Vance: [laughs] We sure picked one hell of a career didn't we Gibbs?
Gibbs: Got to make a living Leon.

NCIS Quotes

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

McGee: Rule number 70 - keep digging till you hit bottom.
Abby: McGee! There is no rule 70.
McGee: Well, I--
Abby: You just made up a rule. This McGibbs thing has really gone to your head. I don't even recognize you right now.
