Storyline

While a Navy rear admiral rides in a taxicab, two motorcyclists, using silenced pistols, execute both him and the cabbie; Gibbs and company investigate. Abby starts a new program, and McGee receives unusual calls. Ducky says that the target was the driver, not the admiral, because the bad guys pulled one of his teeth and lifted the fingerprints on his right hand. The driver was a political refugee who, seven years before, immigrated into the US from Burundi (in East Africa). The hackie remains a John Doe, but the gang identify a distinct trend. The team narrow their attention to a suspect, whom they find shot to death as a motorcycle zips away; they keep going, and they work it out. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

Tony DiNozzo chides Ziva David for not assimilating into American culture because she doesn't use contractions in her English. However, in the scene with the vending machines, she does use contractions. (She does in other episodes as well.) See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: [as McGee is explaining what he's doing on the computer] Less narration, McGee.
Special Agent Timothy McGee: Tracing.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: [to Ziva, as McGee's fingers continue to fly on the computer keyboard] Look at that. It's incredible. Probie's lips are still moving - while he's working! It's like one of those Romanian orphans who can't stop rocking.
Officer Ziva David: You are so prejudiced.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: I am not. I'm not! By the way, that's a contraction. *I'm.* You should try it sometime.
