In the Caribbean Sea near the Bahama islands, a tourist swimmer finds the submerged body of a seaman who has disappeared from a destroyer of the US Navy. The victim wore his dress whites, an officer's sword (honed to a razor-sharp edge), and a Saint Christopher medal; chained to the body were two weights of 25 pounds (11.36 kilos) apiece. Gibbs and company investigate aboard the ship and elsewhere; Abby tells them about a document of a strange sort in the pocket of the sailor's jumper, and she offers some insight about it. The team eventually identify aboard the same ship a petty officer who's connected with the victim and the death; they also save the skipper from an explosion. Written by

As Abby works to crack the video game, Caf-Pows accumulate on her desk. There is a close-up of the first when Ducky comes in, interested in the game. He leaves, but returns with a second one, for which she thanks him, calling him a "prince". Both drinks have orange straws. Later when Abby comes to a password prompt, still two Caf-Pows are visible, but one straw is now green. She mutters the password cracking software could take a while. When the code breaker hits later on, Abby is dozing with now four Caf-Pows on her desk, three with orange straws and one green. See more

You know Abby, sometimes the dead make more sense to me than the living.
