In a dumpster at the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, a three-star admiral finds the body of a long-time friend, who was overdue for a meeting with him; Gibbs and company investigate. At a Trailways station Tony and Ziva pick up Tony's father, who appears to have become somehow connected with the victim in question; Gibbs questions Sr., and the two of them start on unfriendly terms; however, Sr. agrees to do a favor for the gang. Abby finds something in her lab, then something in a taxicab, then McGee finds something on the Internet, then they put it all together. Gibbs sends Ziva with Sr. on his chore, and another guest recognizes her and knows her background and status. Abby uses a connection to produce an answer and a kiss. Ziva and Sr. run into trouble, but they handle it. Jr. and Sr. talk, and they agree to do so even more. Written by
Did You Know?
The serial number of the missing Mark 15 hydrogen bomb, 47787, is very close to the serial number of the so-called "Tybee bomb", an actual Mark 15 hydrogen bomb lost off the coast of Georgia, USA in 1958 following a mid-air collision between a B-47 bomber and an F-86 fighter. Following the collision, the B-47 jettisoned the bomb, serial number 47782, to avoid the danger of the bomb detonating if the damaged aircraft crashed while attempting to land. Despite numerous searches, the missing bomb has never been found. See more
Technically, 3.4 megatons is not "100 times" more powerful than Hiroshima but between 189 to 260 times more powerful.
On the other hand, after more than 50 years, even if the bomb was not damaged in the crash, it would not achieve its design yield. The fusion stage contains Tritium, which has a half life of only 12.3 years and needs to be replaced on a regular basis. After more than 50 years, less than 1/16th of the Tritium would be left. The rest of it would have decayed into Helium-3, which would not only not undergo fusion but even steal neutrons from the fission primary during ignition. So with any luck, the bomb would 'fizzle' (=no nuclear explosion, or at least 'only' a 'small' one).
It would however still pose a very significant security threat because you could use its fissile material to make a functional nuke, reverse-engineer H-bomb design secrets etc. See more
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs
Is this some sort of game you two play? Have you ever just been honest with each other?
Anthony DiNozzo Sr
There may have been things that I haven't told my son... but I have *never* lied to him. You probably won't believe this, Gibbs, but I'm starting to like you. You're not afraid to say what you think.
