Storyline

While an intruder starts to prowl through a home, the resident, a woman Marine, Sergeant Dempsey, who's a bomb-disposal tech, shoots him to death; Gibbs and company investigate; Tony notices an inconsistency, and Abby confirms it. A phone call warns of a bomb aboard a decommissioned destroyer on display at the Navy Yard; Dempsey and others check it out; the bomb explodes and injures her slightly. McGee runs into trouble with a cellphone; Fornell and another member of the FBI become involved. Abby gives the name of the intruder, and the gang discover his background; Gibbs says that he was not a burglar. McGee and Ziva meet Dempsey's brother. Dempsey drops out of sight, but the gang find her on a farm, working with a device and a former drug dealer. Everything works out. Tony almost becomes a poster boy. Written by DocRushing

Quotes

Abby Sciuto: Guns usually speak to me. They tell me what I need to know. You, sir, are not co-operating.
Jimmy Palmer: [Entering] This is getting scary. Dr. Mallard talks to the dead. And now you're talking to evidence. Never mind.
Abby Sciuto: Well, it usually works with firearms. This one's not saying a peep.
