Bishop: Well. You are telling me to talk about my feelings? All right. Tell me Gibbs, how have you processed getting shot? Who is it you're opening up to?
Gibbs: Dr. Taft. I've been talking with him since the Sudan case. Everyone reaches a point, Bishop. Even me. You just got to take the first step.
Bishop: But I can't.
Gibbs: Rule #28. When you need help, ask.

Bishop: You can change the future. Yours and Alex Quinn's. A soldier who fought bravely for his country and is fighting for his life. A life that you can save. You once took an oath to never leave a fallen soldier behind. Now's your chance to make good on that promise.
Doogan: The deal was my only shot at getting out of here. I just wanted a fresh start.
Bishop: That's exactly what this is. A new beginning. I know. Don't let a bad situation define who you are.

Fornell: All right, this is too pathetic. Grab your stuff, let's go.
Tony: Go where?
Fornell: My house.
Tony: You're inviting me to your house for Thanksgiving dinner? I thought I was your second-least favorite?
Fornell: You are. But dry turkey, blackened dinner rolls....it's really more of a punishment.
Tony: So now that we're friends, can I call you Toby?
Fornell: Don't push your luck.

Barbara: My daughter doesn't open up to many people, Gibbs. So I guess if she trust you, I should too. It is not easy knowing she's hundreds of miles away working in a dangerous job. If I had my way, she'd live here and be a teacher. Or a nun.
Gibbs: Daughters.
Barbara: That being said, it is very comforting to know she's surrounded by people who care about her.
Gibbs: I'll look after her.
Barbara: I'm counting on that.

McGee: You know I once dated a girl who had pteronophobia.
Tony: What is that?
McGee: A fear of being tickled with a feather.
Tony: That's interesting. Kinky. Wait a minute. You haven't dated that many people. Do I know this person? Is it Delilah?
McGee: No. It's not Delilah.
Tony: Is it Abby? It is! It's Abby!
McGee: Listen. She will kill me, okay? You have to promise, promise that you will not tell her.
Tony: I promise. You have my word as a gentleman, I promise.

Friedgen: You've got to understand. I didn't do anything. I'm innocent, but nobody believes me. Everyone thinks I'm guilty of murder and got off on a technicality.
Clark: The police aren't looking for anyone else, Gibbs.
Gibbs: What do you want me to do?
Friedgen: I want NCIS to arrest me for murder. I want the truth to come out. I deserve my day in court, sir. I want to be court-martialed.

Green: Is this THE DiNozzo?
Malone: In person.
Green: Hey, you are a legend around here. I've heard a lot of wild stories about you. Tell me about the naked bust. That's not true.
Tony: That is 100% true.
McGee: So who was naked, you or the perp?
Tony: Both of us. I was undercover at a nudist colony.
Malone: See we got this tip. Pole dancer was stealing from her boss, so she's hiding out in a nudist colony. DiNozzo volunteers to go undercover.
McGee: Of course he does.
Green: Is it true you spotted her right away but didn't make the arrest for two days?
Tony: Three days.

Bishop: Now can you tell me why you weren't there when the bomb went off?
Jake: The agency's been asking me the same question. There was a threat assessment before the conference; it was covered up, and then leaked. They suspected I had knowledge of it.
Bishop: Did you?
Jake: Ellie, come on.
Bishop: Where were you?
Jake: You know this is so frustrating.
Bishop: Is this why you've been so distracted and distant lately?
Jake: When you had NSA clearance, we could discuss things, at lunch, at home. But now...
Bishop: I know. I understand and...I hate it.

Tony: Bish is in the cone of silence. Do you know who she's talking to?
McGee: Jake, I think. Obviously something she doesn't want us to hear.
Tony: She seems a little down. Think maybe I should talk to her.
McGee: Leave her be.
Tony: Maybe she's in need of a little brotherly advice.

Here. Sit down. You talk, I'll listen.

Gibbs

Bishop: At first, I thought that you were having an affair. But I know what's going on now, and I know that you're in trouble at work.
Jake: Ellie....
Bishop: Yesterday I went to surprise you at lunch. But when I got there I saw you being reprimanded by Taylor Matthews from Internal Affairs.
Jake: Stop. I'm not in trouble at work. This is so hard. I've been trying to tell you but I don't know how. I'm having an affair with Taylor. At first it was just an office flirtation, that's all it was. But then we went to Dubai. I'm not making excuses but after the bombing....
Bishop: Shut up. I don't want to hear any more.
Jake: Ellie, Ellie you don't deserve this. Look, I hate myself for what I've done.
Bishop: Were you with her last night?

Jake, I'm in a bad place. I hurt a lot. I'm going home to Oklahoma. Don't contact me. I'm not sure when I'll be back.

NCIS Quotes

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.

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.
