A Navy lieutenant, a member of an international nuclear-inspection agency, approaches Gibbs and asks him to solve the officer's own murder; because of his symptoms he knows that someone has exposed him to unknown nuclear radiation; Gibbs and company undertake the case. Abby and Ducky start figuring it out, and Ziva sticks with the subject, whose condition grows worse as though the exposure to the radiation poisoning continues. McGee finds not a smoking gun but rather a smoking cigar; Ducky explains the significance of it. Gibbs and McGee figure out the bad actor, then they change the travel plans for that person. Ziva and the victim have an interesting conversation in a garden. Written by
Did You Know?
The "hospital" that the lieutenant is in, is in fact not a hospital but a military research institute. They use the name and the logo of the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute for the hospital where the man exposed to radiation is dying. There is no hospital at the AFRRI, just research labs.

When Ziva looks at the vending machine in a Washington, DC hospital, a U-NO and two varieties of Rocky Road - candy bars that are available in California but not on the east coast - can be clearly seen. See more

Mark and I ate lunch while we took target practice. I had a bacon cheeseburger with fries washed down with a large coffee.

Run like a health nut, and eat like a slob.

Well, I've always weighed the same. People told me at 40, my body would change. Guess I might not have to worry about that.
