NCIS Season 13 Episode 4: "Double Trouble" Quotes
Bishop: Want me to alert building security?
Gibbs: No. I'll shoot him.
Klugman: I came here to clear my conscience. The man wouldn't even give me a chance.
Vance: Well now that you've done so publicly, why don't you let me explain myself. By getting rid of a dirty agent ten years ago I was protecting my own. And I will continue to protect them. So I suggest you stay away from this building and the honest agents that work here or any problem you have with me will get much much bigger.
Klugman: I was here to help, but....you really are just a politician now, huh?
Tony: So the illegal sports book was yours then?
Carver: No idea what you mean. But I'd love to know who exactly you heard it from.
Tony: Well I bet you would, but then, I have a feeling that the same thing would happen to him that happened to the last guy who pissed you off? So....
Vance: Klugman what the hell are you doing here? Who did this to you?
Klugman: You did this....Director.
Vance: It's a lie.
Porter: Of course it is, but this is Washington. How much mud-slinging will you and the agency endure before we can prove it?
Vance: Right. What option do we have?
Porter: Well per Klugman's lawyer he drops this whole thing if you step down
Porter: Leon, there are no good options here. You've been in this chair for longer than your past two predecessors combined. Maybe it's time for a change. Maybe you write a book; go fishing. Spend time with your kids.
Vance: And what kind of example does running away set for them?
Vance: You're the boss, boss. Although when I asked to tag along I thought this was going to be more like, you know, Butch and Sundance. You're the quick-draw, I'm the brains. Kind of co-equals.
Gibbs: Yeah, we're not.
Vance: So what, I'm Robin to your Batman?
Gibbs: You said you had nothing to prove.
Vance: Damn right.
Gibbs: Well you're not acting like it. The job changes, Leon. We change, for better or for worse.
Porter: You're bleeding.
Vance: I made a mistake. I forgot to trust my agents to do their job. And in the process I forget what my job was. It won't happen again ma'am. I gave up being an agent so I could lead and protect this agency. That's where I can make a difference. It's where I still can.
Porter: So you inspire loyalty in your agents. Loyalty to the point of stupidity sometimes but loyalty nonetheless. So if I have to fire you tomorrow, they'll be upset.
Vance: Yes, I'm still in charge. Now get back to work. You're stuck with me.
Gibbs: Change is hard.
