Storyline

A Marine corporal from WW2, Ernie Yost, who is a new widower and a recipient of the Medal of Honor, voluntarily enters the headquarters of the NCIS, where he happens to meet Gibbs, to whom he confesses having murdered a fellow Marine. Gibbs and the gang investigate, but at first they do not buy the confession or understand it. The SecNav shows interest, for Yost has written to him. LCdr. Faith Coleman, of the JAG Corps, demands to arrest Yost and charge him; however, the NCIS bunch have other plans for him. The team put the pieces together, and both Kate and Faith shed a few tears. A Japanese former soldier lends a hand and serves a meal. Gibbs, a former gunny, takes Yost to dinner. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

This is the second time Charles Durning and Mark Harman worked together. Although not shown on screen at any time, they both previously appeared in The Last Supper (1995) alongside Courtney B. Vance and Cameron Diaz. See more »

Goofs

When Lt. Coleman and the MPs arrive to arrest Corporal Yost, DiNozzo pulls back his tie to display the Medal of Honor hanging from his chest. All three stand at attention but only the MPs salute, Coleman does not. By tradition the Medal of Honor is saluted by all personnel unless the military person is without cover (that is bare-headed), as Coleman is. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Henry: Gibbs.
Gibbs: Hey, morning, Henry!
Henry: That sushi place you sent me to...
Gibbs: What, you didn't like it?
Henry: I liked it fine, only you didn't tell me I had to speak Japanese to order.
Gibbs: You don't order; you eat what you're served, with a smile. Just like being married.

Great Show
25 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was also my favorite episode of NCIS. Charles Durning does a great job, and there are some great scenes in the show. My favorite is when Tony reveals the Medal of Honor to the two Marines who snap to attention and salute. In my opinion, (and I may be prejudice since I am ex-Navy)NCIS is the best show on TV. For the most part, they get the language right (bulkhead, etc) and the customs (not saluting when your cover is off, etc) Michael Weatherly is a good actor who can go from acting goofy to serious parts (like the time, he had the plague) And of course there is Leroy Jethro Gibbs. It will be real interesting to see how the spin off does.
