Quotes

Gibbs: [entering the NCIS morgue to meet with the terrorist Ari Haswari, opens a body bag containing Marta's body, one of Ari's partners] She was beautiful.

Ari Haswari: Very.

Gibbs: [noticing that Ari is unmoved] Did you make love to her and then blow her brains out?

Ari Haswari: She would do the same to me.

Gibbs: Why do you do this?

Ari Haswari: The same reason you do.

Gibbs: I don't think so.

Ari Haswari: Then you're lying to yourself.

Gibbs: What now? You go back to the Middle East? Tell them that Marta was Mossad and she blew the op?

Ari Haswari: Yes.

Gibbs: Two out failures in a row. I'd axe your ass if you worked for me.

Ari Haswari: People who blow themselves apart to kill their enemies have lower expectations.

Gibbs: How do you sell Marta as a double agent?

Ari Haswari: My men the FBI permitted to escape, they know the effort I put into this operation, buying Smokey Sams, kidnapping Agent Todd so I could identify Marine 1, and when they search Marta's apartment they will find money and documents traceable to Mossad. Hamas will believe me. Al Quaeda is more wary.

Gibbs: They don't believe you, you're dead.

Ari Haswari: Yes. And if they do I may learn what they plan as the next 9/11. Would you risk losing that opportunity over pride?

Gibbs: [wanting revenge] It's not pride.

Ari Haswari: If not pride then what? Love of country? Sense of duty? I'm sure they exist in you, but what burns is pride my friend. Shalom.

Gibbs: [as Ari leaves Gibbs shoots him point blank in the shoulder, just as Ari did with Gerald earlier] Just wanted to help you convince Al Quaeda.

[Gibbs leaves calmly while Ari laughs at Gibbs resolve]

Tony: Well, what's wrong, other than the Hamas guy?

Gibbs: The Hamas guy! You know: the terrorist, the bastard, the ass! We call him everything but his name. You know why that is?

Tony: Because we don't know his name?

Gibbs: Because you're not working a hot case. I want his name! I want it *today!* And don't tell me it's Moby Dick!

Missile vendor Mark: Nice bike, Mr. Craig.

Ari Haswari: It's a motorcycle. A bike is something one pedals.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: Tony, I'm worried about him.

Tony DiNozzo: Gibbs? That's like worrying about Jim Bowie in a knife fight.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: Bowie was killed at the Alamo.

Tony DiNozzo: I know. I saw the movie.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: Tony. He's fixated on that terrorist.

Tony DiNozzo: Not fixated; determined. Like Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive. Like the Duke in The Searchers. Mel Gibson in Payback.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: You ever read a book?

Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: McGee said you were looking for me. Actually he said I was under house arrest. I figured it was your way of making a point.

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Do I have to tell you the name of the creek you're up without a paddle? Or how deep it is?

Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: About up to my knees?

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Ah, so you're familiar with this creek?

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: I need you to profile a terrorist.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: What terrorist?

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: The one you couldn't stab.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: [uncomfortable pause] Ducky tell you that?

Gibbs: [Gibbs is working on his boat while the TV in the background mentions Ari Haswari's failed mission] Suspected drug dealers. Whose idea was that?

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: Secret Service.

Gibbs: They give Ari his get out of jail for free pass too?

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: Nah, CIA did that. All the Directors agreed, including yours. Ari's father was Mossad, probably knocked his mother up to get a son with Arab blood. Sent him to medical school to vet him as a doctor in Gaza. This guy's been a sleeper all his life.

Gibbs: [deadpan] Well, I'd like to put him in a coma.

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: Al Qaeda fronted this Hamas op. Ari was just having to do what'd make his bones with 'em.

Gibbs: [uncompromising on his answer] You tell that to Gerald.

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: You forget I lost a man and had three wounded.

Gibbs: No, but it seems you did.

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: You know better than that.

Gibbs: There's a line, Tobias. That bastard crossed it. You don't make your bones shooting friends.

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: What d'you want him to do. He's in Al Qaeda.

Gibbs: [smacks boat hard] *I don't know!*

DiNozzo: I'm sorry I took a long lunch, Boss, but I was working a hot case.

Gibbs: What's a hot case to you, DiNozzo? Shadowing a tight ass?

DiNozzo: That's not fair, Boss.

Gibbs: War is not fair! And we are at war. Until I dismiss you, which could be any moment now, you will fight that war 24/7. That includes eating, sleeping, taking a crap. Got that?

DiNozzo: Yes, Boss. Can I say something?

Gibbs: Only if it has something to do with that bastard I'm after!

DiNozzo: It does.

Gibbs: Then speak!

DiNozzo: Boss... You've really gotta see Moby Dick.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: [regarding the terrorist who shot Gerald and Gibbs] Why did he give you a shot at him?

[Tony is "in love," again]

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: What's this one's name?

Tony DiNozzo: She's Swedish.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: You don't know her name. How can you be in love with someone and not... I forgot. It's you we're talking about.

Ari Haswari: [while pouring wine] It's a very nice Chardonnay, Caitlin. And almost perfectly chilled. I wish you'd taste it.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: Let her taste it.

Marta: I don't drink.

Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: That's right. Muslims don't use alcohol.

Ari Haswari: Well, not at home.

[winks at Kate]

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: Directors want your word that you'll forget about Ari. They think you'll blow his cover.

Gibbs: If I get paid back, it won't be by blowing his cover. Why are *you* asking me this and not my director?

FBI Agent T.C. Fornell: He refused to.

Gibbs: [Gibbs finally laughs] Yeah.
