Fornell: You said we were going after Sergei.
Gibbs: No, no. You said that. I said let's go.
Fornell: Which would imply agreement. What the hell are we doing out here? Wait a minute. An intervention? Is that what this is?
Gibbs: Do you think you need one?
Fornell: No! I mean last night was bad yes, but not bad enough to make any kind of New Age come-to-Jesus even remotely necessary.
Gibbs: Good. That's not what this is. No more slow-motion suicide Tobias. You want to kill yourself, fine with me. Go ahead. I'll even come with you.

Fornell: I'm done.
Gibbs: You're done -- with what? Embarrassing yourself? Or you mean embarrassing the badge. You've done a good job with both. [Fornell punches Gibbs]
Gibbs: That all you got, Alice? [Fornell swings again and Gibbs shoves him through the door]

Gibbs: Do you feel better?
Fornell: We should be in D.C. looking for Sergei.
Gibbs: Not in this condition. Forget about Sergei. What's really bothering you?
Fornell: Don't Freud me Gibbs. You're not qualified.
Gibbs: You know what I'm asking.
Fornell: Back off.
Gibbs: You blame me.
Fornell: Jethro...
Gibbs: It's okay Tobias. I blame me. I'm the one who got her killed. If Diane wasn't on that rooftop she would be alive. And you wouldn't be walking around pretending like I wasn't the one who put her there.
Fornell: So it's all about you.
Gibbs: Yeah. It is all about me. And it's about you. And it's about Diane, and it's about the drinking and it's about all of it.
Fornell: No, my friend. It's just me. I killed her. No one to blame but myself. And I really need a drink.

Fornell: God I really do look like hell.
Gibbs: Did you think we were lying to you, Tobias?
Vance: Well it's nothing a hot shower can't fix.
Fornell: Amen to that, Leon. And a hot meal with my daughter.
Bishop: Well then, our timing's perfect.
Emily: And I was thinking more of sushi?
Fornell: Whatever you want baby. Whatever you need, it's yours.

Gibbs: Then can we hack into, uh, his GPS REM thingy and backtrace his memory deal?
Abby: Um, none of those things are things Gibbs. One of them's a band and when someone turns their phone off there's nothing you can do. I mean it's off.

Gibbs: Jake I want to ask you something. Work-related.
Jake: Will it require top secret clearance to answer?
Gibbs: Yeah, and it stays between us.
Jake: I'm all ears.
Gibbs: What do you know about Russian-Palestinian relations?

Gibbs: Where is Hollis Mann?
Bishop: Uh, I think she went back to the DoD.
Gibbs: You think? What do you mean, you think?
Tony: We've been at this all night. We're all a little tired. Why don't we take a break, get some air.
Gibbs: No, there is no break. There's no breaks until this case breaks.
Tony: Never get personally involved in a case. You're breaking rule number 10 boss.
Gibbs: You're damned right I am DiNozzo. You have a problem with that?

Riley: Is this what you meant when you said "trust you" Agent Gibbs?
Gibbs: Our office had nothing to do with that.
Riley: They are dragging Eric's name through the mud. It's exactly what I was afraid would happen.
Gibbs: Why don't we take this to the conference room.
Riley: No, no no. There's nothing to talk about. The damage is already done. I thought you were a man of honor. You got me. Hey but what's one dead gay sailor, right?

Meade: I'd watch your tone, Agent Gibbs. I don't think SecNav would appreciate NCIS treating an Admiral like a criminal.
Gibbs: Oh, we already talked to SecNav. How did she phrase it?
Hollis: Nail the son of a bitch.
Meade: For what?
Hollis: Killing Lieutenant Kutzler's first Medal of Honor nomination.

A leader looks after his men. He fights for them. That's who Lieutenant Kutzler was. You're a disgrace to that uniform, and I look forward to testifying at your court martial.

Hollis: It's your fault Diane's dead. That's what you're thinking.
Gibbs: I'm not wrong.
Hollis: You didn't pull the trigger.
Gibbs: I put her in the cross-hairs. He wanted to make it personal. Still does. I'm figuring it out. But you being around me makes you a target. So that's why you're shutting me out?
Gibbs: I don't need you mixed up in this. I don't need you mixed up in me!
Hollis: It's not your call. I'll take my chances. I can handle myself. Hmm?
Gibbs: Copy that.

Vance: We're going to get the bastard.
Gibbs: You checking up on me Leon? I'm fine.
Vance: Are you, Gibbs?
Gibbs: He had a chance to kill me and he didn't.
Vance: Cause he wants you to torture yourself like you're doing right now.
Gibbs: I'm not going to give him that satisfaction.

NCIS Quotes

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.

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.
