Storyline

Two civilians find the body of a Navy petty officer first-class, submerged in a backyard hot tub; Gibbs and company investigate; Ducky sees an unusual clue. The widow fills in Tony and Ziva, and Abby makes a significant discovery, implicating a ship of the Royal Navy. Gibbs takes a strong dislike to a major in the Royal Marines; however, Ziva asks the major to "do a quickie". Tony and Ziva find an important valve handwheel, and Gibbs gains an advantage by using a pipe wrench. The ship leaves port, but the major stays behind, and the major turns out to be something else, as does a special agent of the CIA. Vance tells Gibbs to cool it; Gibbs takes a different tack, and he finds a visitor when he returns home. The gang trace missing money; they figure out who killed the sailor, and who stole the money, then they nab the person responsible. Tony sets off an alarm. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

The English never had the first Marine corps ever. In 1665 the first real Marine corps as so, was deployed by the dutch Marine so the American marines decent from the Dutch and not from the English.

Update: The Royal Marines were formed in 1755 as the Royal Navy's infantry troops. However, the marines can trace their origins back to the formation of the English Army's "Duke of York and Albany's maritime regiment of Foot" at the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company on 28th October 1664. In addition, it was stated that the U.S Marine Corp was modelled after the British Marines, not the Dutch. So, there actually two things wrong with the initial statement; date and origin. See more »

This is one of the better episodes. What makes it stand out is Daniel Gillies as the British officer Malloy who has to be one of the handsomest creatures ever to walk planet earth. NCIS usually tends to be populated with doltish muscleheads for whom I have zero empathy. In perhaps a year or two Gillies should be playing Bond. He just crackles. I found myself holding my breath while he was on screen.

The fun comes in this episode from jurisdictional disputes with the British Navy, the CIA and ...

The one thing I did not like were the expositions on CSI technology given between experts who obviously should know all this already. The writers should have this exposition directed at a more naive character.
