NCIS Season 12 Episode 14: "Cadence" Quotes
Bishop: So. Military school, huh?
Tony: So. Yeah.
Bishop: Uniforms, PT, drills....
Tony: Those are all things that happen at military school, yes.
Bishop: How'd you end up there?
Tony: It was Senior's Hail Mary - trying to straighten me out after six boarding schools in four years.
Leave the gun, take the cannoli. The Godfather? Come on kid it's a classic.Tanner
Tanner: The first night is usually the hardest. If you need me, I'm down the hall.
Young Tony: I'm 17, not 7. And this isn't my first new dorm room, new clothes, new teachers. Back off, buddy, okay?
Tanner: The name's not Buddy. It's Mr. Tanner. And from now on you are Cadet DiNozzo. Grab some rack time.
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.
Golan: What the hell are you doing?
Young Tony: Give him a break Golan, come on.
Golan: Drill leader.
Young Tony: What?
Golan: You will address me as drill leader, Cadet DiNozzo.
Young Tony: Okay well drill leader: I think Piggy needs a little break. Probably the nurse.
Golan: That's two demerits, DiNozzo.
Young Tony: What for?
Golan: One for dropping out of PT. One for your tone.
Young Tony: Yeah whatever. Let's get Piggy to the nurse.
Golan: Piggy's going to stay where his until he learns how to keep up with the rest of the squad. You are you going to get back in line if you know what's good for you.
Young Tony: Well one thing's for sure: I never know what's good for me.
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?
Tony: Okay let's get something straight. You will not - under any circumstances - tell McGee one detail of what you saw at my old school.
Bishop: The only thing I saw was that you were a good cadet and that they respect you.
Tony: Yeah. So let's not go blabbing about it.
Bishop: Why does it bother you? It's part of who you are. You can't ignore the past Tony.
Tony: Just watch me. And not one word or I'll tell McGee that song you sing in the shower.
Bishop: How do you--
Tony: Cheap motel. Thin walls. It's a ridiculous song.
Bishop: What's Honor Corps?
Phelps: It's a group of students who police sub-standard cadets, break a rule or bring squad performance down - they pay you a visit.
Bishop: Look Travis - I'm sorry for what happened to you but I'm wondering what happened to Christine.
Phelps: They disciplined her. Every night for a month before she died, they broke her.
Tanner: You have an opportunity here. You have talent on the basketball court. You're smart. You don't like rules and regulations, me neither. You going to let that stop you?
Young Tony: It's self-preservation.
Tanner: You worried about Cadet Golan?
Young Tony: Yeah, he runs Honor Corps. It's only a matter of time.
Tanner: Honor Corps won't touch you.
Young Tony: How do you know that?
Tanner: 'Cause you're a starter on the varsity basketball team, DiNozzo. And I look out for my guys. Now there are things about this school that are going to change. Honor Corps is one of them. This is a good place. You it all, don't run. Take a stand and I'll stand with you.
Bishop: It's your past, Tony. And it's a good one.
Tony: I have a tricky relationship with the past. I can either bury it or fixate on it. Still working out the kinks.
Bishop: Well whatever happened in your past helped make you the awesome guy you are today.
