At night at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, a hit-and-run driver strikes and kills a running woman Navy petty officer third-class; Gibbs and company investigate; Abby identifies the nature of the vehicle, Tony and McGee narrow the search to one pickup truck, and they find the owner, who stops talking, hires a mouthpiece, and in confidence tells her an incredible alibi. Abby confirms that someone else drove the truck; the lawyer checks out the alibi and assures Gibbs that it's solid, but she properly declines to reveal the story; however, she drops a bread crumb, which Tony and McGee trace. Abby finds a thumbprint attached to a name, which leads the gang to a second Marine at Quantico. Tony and McGee develop a hypothesis about a three-way murder club; the weak link flips on his co-conspirators, so he gets the deal. Gibbs and the lawyer share a dinner and a pleasant conversation.

Abby is underneath the pickup truck when Gibbs comes down to talk to her. She slides out from under the truck and then kicks the mechanic's creeper she was lying on out of the way. It goes almost out of sight under the truck. In the next shot the creeper is out from under the truck and back where it was before she kicked it. See more
