NCIS quotes are a big reason to watch the show. The one-liners delivered by the characters in jest and the lightning-quick exchanges as they pertain to the cases make for terrific viewing.

Delilah: You didn't tell us you were engaged.
Judy: It was only for six months. We split up last month, so I didn't see the need in telling you.

I already agreed to stay away from the windows.


McGee: Why didn't you tell Delilah you were going on a cruise?
Judy: I did, well, I thought I did.

No, I didn't know. I just found out.


I'm not a terrorist.


Parker: I'm sure you'll all be happy to hear that I have decided not to take Director Vance up on his offer to join your team. And, I'm guessing that's the first you've heard of it.
Vance: I was waiting on Agent McGee to return before I filled them in, and you're early.
Parker: Oops. Sidebar? I appreciate the offer, Director, but I'm not ready to jump into anything new just yet.
Vance: Perhaps you'd like to spend some time in the field with the team before you make your final decision?
Parker: I already made it. Plus, I got tickets to a Simon and Garfunkel reunion concert later today, and I've been waiting a long time for that baby, so.
Jimmy: Hey, why are you guys standing around here. Haven't you heard?
McGee: Whoa. What's up?
Jimmy: A Navy petty officer turned into a zombie.
Torres: A zombie?
Jimmy: Yeah, crawled all over the ground and everything. You didn't get the call?
Parker: That kind of thing happen a lot around here?
McGee: First for me.

Torres: The man's desk is not even cold.
Knight: Well, it's going to get colder in Alaska and we do need the bodies.

Torres: Hey, Tim. You said that Gibbs was happy. What do you mean?
McGee: I don't want to talk about it.
Torres: You can't leave me hanging, bro.
McGee: I'm sorry. It felt kind of private.
Torres: Is he going to be okay?
McGee: I think he probably hasn't been this OK in a long time.
Torres: What about that guy? Can you believe Director Vance offered him Gibb's job already?

I'm not going back.


Gibbs: Hey, doc.
Ducky: Jethro. Going on a trip?
Gibbs: Yeah, Alaska.
Ducky: Fishing or business?
Gibbs: Hopefully both.

Jimmy: You spoke with Gibbs? How is he holding up? I've been worried about him.
Ducky: As have I, that's why I paid him a visit.

Gibbs: Yeah, Gibbs.
Kasey: We found Libby's article and it claimed Sonova's own internal environmental impact report said the mine would have quote unavoidable catastrophic consequences to the water and surrounding animal life.

NCIS quotes are not to be missed. The crime solving is great and all, but the one-liners from the characters - and Tony's movie quotes, and Gibbs' one-word zingers - are often some of the most memorable parts of a given episode. Be it simple or profound, the show has a way of amping up the drama when it matters most and using levity to keep things grounded. NCIS quotes cover the full spectrum and then some.

NCIS Quotes

McGee: You and Zoe broke up?
Tony: You heard.
McGee: Why didn't you tell me?
Tony: Well the break-up bug's going around. Didn't want you to catch it.

I'm more of a Super-Mario guy, myself.
