Delilah: Rule number 9. I listen. You and I on the other hand...we need to work on our communication.
McGee [kisses her]: Hello.
Delilah: Hi.

People call us blue collar. I don't care what color your shirt is. You bring pride to the job, people notice. Even if they don't, you notice.

Look at me guys. I am doing paper work. Then I'm going to go make some bread with a girl that makes me smile. I'm evolving.

Ducky: My mind has been scattered with grandfatherly worries.
Gibbs: Grandfather?
Ducky: Mr. Palmer has declared when the child is of speaking age, she will call me "Grand-Ducky".

Bishop: So why did Linda leave him?
Tony: She probably got clued into his line of work.
Bishop: I thought he was a businessman.
Tony: Ha.
McGee: Well he calls himself an entrepreneur. But he's kind of more like a head-hunter who finds rich people, by--
Tony: It's okay Tim, you can say it. My dad is a con man.
Bishop: What? But he's so---
Tony: Handsome? Charismatic? Right place, right time? Exactly.

McGee: You know, maybe you should give him an activity. It'll occupy his mind. Pretend like nothing's wrong?
Bishop: Like you do for Tony when he's depressed?
McGee: Yeah.
Tony: You do?
McGee: Oh yeah. When Ziva stayed in Israel?
Tony: Oh yeah. You asked me to help me replace that Tron wallpaper in your bedroom with the new Star Wars stuff.
McGee: Worked like a charm.

Gibbs: Give him an activity. McGee does it for you.
Senior: Junior. You there?
Tony: Hey dad. Listen we'll work on that paper thing but I really need you to do something for me.
Senior: You do?
Tony: Yeah. I need you to re-caulk my tub.
Senior: You mean like a handy-man kind of thing?
Tony: Yeah that's it. Sort of an emergency, I heard it on the news. There's a recall on the caulking I used.
Senior: You're kidding!
Tony: No, no. Causes athlete's foot. Nasty. I know you've got a lot on your mind--
Senior: Oh that's all right. I'll be fine. I can handle it.
Tony: Well thanks a million, dad.
Senior: See you son.
Gibbs: Works like a charm.

Senior: You know the idea of Linda and I getting married, I felt it made Junior really proud.
McGee: Yeah it did.
Senior: Ever since he was born, I've been chasing this moment where I walk into a room and he announces me with his head held high. I just can't seem to earn it. I really miss Linda.
McGee: You know, maybe you could try promising her that you know, that you won't do it anymore.
Senior: Won't do what?
McGee: The questionable stuff.
Senior: Questionable stuff?
McGee: Well yeah, I mean you know -- the conning stuff.
Senior: Conning? Linda thinks that I'm conning somebody?
McGee: No. I don't know. Tony said that Linda might have left because of your conning.
Senior: She left because she met an architect with fancy glasses who bought her a ticket to Acapulco. Is that what Junior tells people? That I'm a con artist?
McGee: I'm sorry. I should get back to the office. Sorry.

Gibbs: You know I've got a friend. He paid his dad's hotel bill once, because his dad couldn't cover it. And I said to my friend, I said "why'd you do that? Your dad never did anything for you". The look on his face. Never seen anything like it. There was more love on his face than I ever saw. I guess that his dad meant more to him than he knew.
Aziz: What does that have to do with anything?

Senior: I need to tell you something.
Tony: Oh, you don't need to say anything.
Senior: Look. I've done a lot of things in my life. I've pretended to be better than I am. I've dealt with some pretty shady folks, but son -- I am not a con artist. I am an entrepreneur. The difference between an entrepreneur and a con artist is that an entrepreneur believes in the dreams he's selling. Whether my deals fell through or not, I believed in what I was selling. There. That's the look that Gibbs was talking about.

You have arrived at your final destination.

NCIS Quotes

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
