Workers find a body at a retrofitting site at a Navy facility; Gibbs and company investigate. Palmer finds evidence, which promptly disappears, and he briefly sees a fleeing person, who takes a shot at him. Vance, the assistant director, continues to use management by intimidation, which does not work on Gibbs. Ducky says that the victim died not from the blow to his head but rather from the injuries resulting from his fall from the third story; Ducky shows Gibbs some curious evidence. The victim's home disappears, and Abby uses hypnosis on Palmer. The team find a second body inside a concrete column, and they figure out everything; Palmer sees the bad guy again and stops him.

Abby Sciuto: One time I got my lip stuck in a vacuum cleaner display in a department store. I lost like a quart of saliva before my cousin pulled the plug. Still have nightmares about it. Can't be alone with Apa-Filter.
Jimmy Palmer: How old were you?

Just a comment on the first quote in the quotes section
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of this is a great episode. I saw a few clips of while flipping channels before I started seriously watching NCIS and I still remembered the episode clips when I re-watched it today, even those I first saw that several months ago. I started watching NCIS because a coworker mentioned how much she liked the show and that she thought I would like Abby, but one of the main reasons I started watching was because of Michael Weatherly who plays Tony. I have seen him in so few things, but my favorite was his role in Dark Angel. Dark Angel is one of and perhaps my favorite show of all time. So I can't help but point out when Tony says or does something that reminds of things Logan of Dark Angel said or did. There was another time this happened in the episode "Hiatus (Part 1)" when he made a comment about the likeliness of him hooking up with Jessica Alba comparing it to finding something on the case. And as I already knew and the trivia section of that episode, Jessica Alba, his costar on Dark Angel, dated and were engaged for a time. My point about the quote (while it took me long to get to it), is that Tony pokes fun at McGee for being afraid of heights, but in Dark Angel Logan was deathly afraid of heights. I just thought it interesting but maybe it isn't that interesting.
