The Gibbs-Fornell Twosome
2 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the camaraderie between Gibbs and Fornell should be developed more. They have a comedic timing that works extremely well. I don't remember the episode title, but I especially liked the scene when Fornell was cooking Italian at Gibbs' house. When Gibbs came home and picked up the dishes to bring to Fornell in the kitchen, he was actually giddy at having a home cooked meal. That is an emotion we rarely see from Gibbs. Then Fornell asked him if he was going to wash his hands before dinner just like a housewife that was home cooking all day sweating over a hot stove. It was just too cute. Also, the time Fornell brought home dinner, which was suppose to be hamburgers but wasn't, and they both ended up eating cereal, because what he did bring home was so awful. I can see them as an odd couple of sorts. Just a little food for thought.
