Tony and Ziva become personally and intensely engaged in their next assignment, an undercover one partly under the covers. The Marine Corps CID in Kuwait has found incriminating documents among the personal effects of two Canadian assassins who died in a car wreck. The documents suggest a plan for the killers to target one or more high officials at the annual Marine Corps birthday ball in Washington, DC, so the NCIS investigates. Gibbs and McGee find that two bad guys are good guys, then Gibbs and Fornell again discuss a problem in their usual conference room. Abby and Chip provide much data, then the team figure out everything and extract Tony and Ziva. Gibbs celebrates his birthday alone.

Jenny makes a comment to Gibbs about "the former Czech Republic"; however, the Czech Republic is currently the Czech Republic, and was formerly part of Czechoslovakia. The Czech lands prior to WWI were part of Austria-Hungary, and before that the Austrian Empire. It was before The Battle of Mohács (1526) that these Czeck lands were independent, and they were not referred to as "The Czech Republic". See more
You haven't fired your gun. Why are you cleaning it again?
It keeps me calm. Helps to keep my mind on the job in my hand.
The phrase is "the job at hand".
