Gibbs [softly]: I doubt that.
Sloane: What are you talking about?

Gibbs: What’s your favorite drink?
Kasie: Rum and Coke!
Gibbs: At work!
Kasie: Oh, *not* Rum and Coke!

Brooks: Just told you! Somebody wants me dead.
Gibbs: Who?!

Brooks: What!? It’s only been a few days!
Gibbs [in disbelief]: SIX! It’s been SIX DAYS, Phil!
