The body of a petty officer falls from the ceiling of a men's washroom at a nightclub in the basement of a warehouse in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate; Ducky says that someone dressed the victim after he died. The sailor, a storekeeper from NAS Pax River, along with four buddies from the same station, had gone to the nightclub for a wild night. The team puzzle over latex, safety glass, talcum powder, and $40K in cash. Basic footwork and inquisitive thinking eventually produce the connection between a prank and an inheritance. Four musketeers confess, and Kate and Tony seek Chinese food. Written by
