Goofs

This episode begins at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a military installation; rather, it is a private, member-owned facility. Hence, neither Army CID nor NCIS would have initial jurisdiction - which would, in fact, fall to Arlington PD. See more »

Quotes

[Sharif catches Abraham stealing a sandwich from his store]
Mamoun Sharif: Hey! What did I tell you? The owner takes this out of my pocket! The next time I catch you, I'm calling the police! Out the back!
[He hustles Abraham to the back door, but then stops him and gives him the sandwich back]
Mamoun Sharif: So don't let me catch you.
Abraham Moussalah: Thank you.
[Abraham leaves. Sharif turns and sees Gibbs and Mann standing there]
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: It still comes out of your pocket, doesn't it?
Mamoun Sharif: Yes, but where I was born it is a sin to turn away a hungry man.

NCIS teams with Army CID to combat a local home-grown terrorist cell.
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kept my interest throughout, but left many many unanswered questions. Yes this is typical for NCIS, but I had to watch the show twice to see if I missed some key plot twist (couldn't find anything new). One of the usual draws to NCIS for me is that you can miss an episode or two and still get sucked in and feel like you've been entertained. The continuing story line is purposely faint in order to focus the watcher on the current show, not a lot of back-story and repetitive dialog which is usually just right for me. However this episode seemed to lack any coherent plot other than the obvious. Even the sparks foretold between Gibbs and the female CID colonel mislead to the end. If I liked mindless poorly thought-out stories I'd watch (yuccchh!) reality TV.

It lost points with me for being overly vague, but retained 7 out of 10 because even the drivel was exciting. BTW, its time for Ziva to stop being such a pain to work with. She's only likable about 10% of the time.
