The body of a petty officer falls from the ceiling of a men's washroom at a nightclub in the basement of a warehouse in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate; Ducky says that someone dressed the victim after he died. The sailor, a storekeeper from NAS Pax River, along with four buddies from the same station, had gone to the nightclub for a wild night. The team puzzle over latex, safety glass, talcum powder, and $40K in cash. Basic footwork and inquisitive thinking eventually produce the connection between a prank and an inheritance. Four musketeers confess, and Kate and Tony seek Chinese food.

When Ducky shows Gibbs the x-rays on the light panel, the skull with multiple fractures is the same exact film as the one from episode "Left For Dead," except it's is horizontally reversed. See more
Dr. "Ducky" Mallard comments on the numerous broken bones of the deceased, and lists "...tibia, fibia, ..." He should have said "fibula", not "fibia". Both the audible dialog and the closed-captioning contain this error. See more
