Storyline

Two young boys find the body of Marine LCpl. Lozada, without one hand; Gibbs and company investigate. Ducky says that the victim died elsewhere, and that the traumatic amputation took place postmortem. Lozada served on the guard detail for a high-level think tank, the Sattler Institute, which uses gifted, precocious kids to suggest solutions for military problems, using simpler, cleaner, purer, less linear, less bureaucratic ways of approaching problems. One student, Angela, had a close friendship with Lozada, who was a former member of a gang; a security tape at the institute reveals a clue. Tony and McGee find another connection, but they run into trouble. A maintenance worker at the institute finds the body of a woman. Ziva and Angela go to Ducky's house, but Angela disappears. Angela and the bad guy show up at Angela's house, as do Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva; right and justice trump. Then the gang gather at Ducky's house for a toast and a turkey dinner. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

When Ducky comes out of the lab into the hallway and takes a left. Gibbs comes around the corner from down the hallway-behind Ducky and says "Hey." However, he says this before he could have seen Ducky. Ducky responded to the "Hey" and turned to meet Gibbs. The voice does not sound like Gibbs, nor is "Hey" something his character would normally say. The assumption is that this may have been inserted in editing by someone else doing the voice over.

Quotes

Krista Dalton: Parker's specialty is the redeployment of rapid response groups.
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: I thought we had people at the Pentagon who do that.
Krista Dalton: We do. But we've found that gifted children have a less linear, less bureaucratic way of approaching things. Simpler. Cleaner. Purer.
