Storyline

At the Naval Station, San Diego, California, Gibbs's sailboat, which he gave to Franks, drifts in, unmanned but laden with two bodies; Vance, Gibbs, Ducky, and a local agent investigate; they check out Franks's home (in Mexico) but find nobody. The boat and the bodies arrive in Washington, DC. The gang identify the dead -- enlisted men, one Army, one Navy, both dishonorably discharged, more recently working as functionaries of a large private military contractor. Franks shows up at Gibbs's house with Franks's daughter-in-law and granddaughter (Gibbs's goddaughter). Gibbs and Franks get a bad surprise; Gibbs thinks and reminisces, then he and Franks have a chat. The daughter-in-law's mother arrives in Washington from Iraq; McGee meets her and takes her to the NCIS headquarters. After a rumble in the dark inside Gibbs's house, Gibbs arrests a bad guy, and Franks, along with his relatives and the grandmother, go to his house, on the beach in Mexico. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

The hull shape of the boat "Kelly" shown when the vessel is upright is inconsistent with the hull shape the whole time Gibbs is building it, and also when the vessel is upside down being cut up by Abby. The hull shown incorrectly in this episode is a hard chine - it has a strong angle between the side and underneath of the hull; the hull shown as the boat is being built (and also being cut up) is smooth curve - there is no distinct "edge" between the side and underneath, it curves from one to the other.

Quotes

Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: I left him with the boat. He trailered it to the west coast. It was a gift for my goddaughter.
NCIS Director Leon Vance: And this is how he repays you.
