While testing an experimental robotic driverless SUV, a woman Navy lieutenant becomes trapped inside the car, and she dies of carbon-monoxide poisoning. Gibbs and company, finally unable to avoid the dreaded sexual-harassment training lecture, attend, but a phone call summons them to investigate the death. The victim's civilian co-workers tend to suspect suicide, but McGee suggests otherwise; one part of a surveillance tape has become erased. Tony and Ziva make a startling discovery; Abby becomes stuck in an uncomfortable situation, but Gibbs rescues her, although McGee does not. Tony sings a song and sees Jeanne again, and the gang get the answers and the bad guy. Written by DocRushing

In one scene, Abby asks McGee "what was that movie where they took the whole car apart, searching for heroin". McGee doesn't know and says he "is not Tony." That movie is "The French Connection" (1971). See more »


After Abby is pulled from the car, Gibbs' hand goes from on her shoulder to over her ear and back again as the camera switches angles. See more »


Torsten Engler: All I'm saying, Agent DiNozzo, is our entire team is under a tremendous amount of stress. We're competing against dozens of teams. Three and a half years of work, and it all comes down to a single proof of concept test.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Robot car race?
Torsten Engler: In crude terms, yes.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: What do you get if you win?
Torsten Engler: Recognition in my field.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: What about one of those cool trophies like they hand out in Nascar?
Torsten Engler: I wouldn't know. I'm a scientist, not a... redneck.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: It is the fastest growing sport in the country.
Torsten Engler: I rest my case.

Baby you can drive my car
27 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A robot-type car is the site of the death of an officer, and at first the death appears to be a suicide. That is, until Abby finds herself locked in the vehicle with exhaust fumes pouring into the passenger compartment. Gibbs comes to the rescue, and now the team realizes they are dealing with a murder, not a suicide. The suspense builds nicely in the Abby scene, with McGee turned away at a critical moment, immersed in his work and not realizing Abby is in trouble. Mercifully, Gibbs walks in at that moment to see what's going on. Meanwhile, Tony seems to be spending a lot of time at the local hospital, which is making Ziva nervous. She will find out soon enough what's going on.
