Storyline

A real-estate agent and two clients find the body of a Navy woman lieutenant commander, Maya, who has served as a Naval attaché overseas (most recently in Cairo, Egypt), and whose husband, Nick, is a detective for the Metro PD, Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate. Nick tries to help, but his help does not help; however, Gibbs and Nick find a common ground, as do Tony and Nick, who gives Tony a slip of paper. Ziva poses several questions to CI-Ray, and he poses one to her. Maya made a number of trips between Cairo and Islamabad, Pakistan. Gibbs sees one clue, and McGee and Abby pursue it, then Tony and Ziva find something. Gibbs and Abby learn that Maya caught a bad guy after he committed a major crime. Ziva figures out several things, and she extracts a confession. Nick offers some personal advice to Tony and Ziva. Written by DocRushing

Quotes

Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Ah, but I killed the proposal. Should've seen it. Rocked the tuxedo. Set out the candles. I even managed to shed a tear.
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: [Gibbs enters] Something you want to share, DiNozzo?
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: No, not really, boss. But hey, you should be getting ready to play Father of the Bride. I'd base it on the Spencer Tracy classic - and skip the Steve Martin.
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: Yeah? I'm happy for you, Ziva.
Ziva David: Ha. I did not exactly say "yes" so... it's not exactly official.
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: It will be if it's right.
