Ziva: You got captured ... on purpose?
Ziva: These people are killers, Tony.
Tony: That's why we have to stay alive long enough to not get dead.
Ziva: That would involve getting rescued.
Tony: Yes it would.
McGee: [on Ziva's ship] There's no record of it.
Tony: Why not?
Gibbs: It was lost at sea. Damacles went down on the 28th of May off the coast of Somalia. There were no survivors.
Tony: So, how was your summer?
Ziva: Out of everyone in the world who could have found me, it had to be you.
Tony: You're welcome.
Abby: It's weird Ziva hasn't contacted me. I mean it would be one thing if she simply hadn't picked up the phone and called me, but I've tried to contact her several different ways.
McGee: Psychics, crystals or telepathy?
Rebecca: So why is Detective McGree conducting the interrogation?
Tony: We prefer the term interview. Less of a negative connotation.
Rebecca: Got it.
Tony: It's all about chemistry. The zing, the pahh!
McGee: What do you mean, 'pahh'?
Tony: You know ... pahh.
If I could drag her back I would, in a heartbeat. But it's no use. Ziva David is dead.Tony

Salim: [re: truth serum] It will not take long for it to start working.
Tony: You're gonna be dead soon, you know.
Salim: You will tell me everything. Who you are, how you came to be here. Everything.
Tony: I'm not gonna tell you anything.
