Ducky says that the victim did not die at home, and Palmer says that he had cirrhosis. The victim's wallet contains a $100 bill with new security features not yet circulated to the public, so the Secret Service enters the picture, as does a hot-chick agent, against whom Gibbs wins the first round. McGee and Abby find a print of an inside man at the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP). Tony's father visits him for Christmas, but Tony shows much displeasure.

Did You Know?


The uncirculated $100 has the Liberty Bell on the wrong side of the Franklin portrait. The $100 bill was of a early batch of a new design. Not unreasonable to believe that the layout was changed from current $100 bills. See more »

Another great episode for the holidays
24 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode had an original case and good humour, but it failed to pass on as much Christmas spirit as "Newborn King" did. That doesn't stop it from being emotional though.

First of all the case is awesome and original, a money laundering story. The way they catch the killer is original and great, a classic NCIS case.

The humour made me and my dad laugh a lot especially the scene where McGee meets his old high school buddy. This episode was all in all hilarious.

This episode was extremely emotional for DiNozzo but I feel like his dad wasn't into his performance. Kind of like he was bored when he was filming. This kind of ruined the mood, but it didn't stop the final scene from being emotional. It was indeed a great scene. As usual, Abby brought the Christmas spirit in this episode.

Overall, "You Better Watch Out" is a nice episode even though DiNozzo's father seems like he'd rather be somewhere else. The end was predictable but still rather emotional. The case was really good though. It's is worth watching even though it doesn't have as much Christmas spirit as Newborn King.
