By accident two bikers meet a dead driver who destroys their ride; the late driver, a petty officer and a naturalized citizen of the USA, was of Egyptian descent. His death resulted from massive internal bleeding due to an intestinal blockage caused by emeralds. He had just arrived from duty as an interpreter at Camp Delta at the US Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba; his luggage contained five unmailed letters to others from a woman special agent of the NCIS at Gitmo. Gibbs, Kate, and Tony go to Gitmo while Abby checks out perfumes in Washington. The gang sort things out, identify a son-in-law of Bin Laden, and prevent a murder. Written by DocRushing

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Try and brand the cologne.
Abby Sciuto: Why, you want some?
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Nope, don't use cologne. Women I date think the smell of sawdust is sexy. That's probably why I don't... date many women.
