Storyline

Shortly after sunrise a farmer on a tractor in West Virginia sees an unattended intact USMC Cobra helicopter inside a crop circle on his land. The bird took off at 23:00 the previous night from the Marine Corps Air Station, New River, North Carolina. While Gibbs and company investigate the site, a smoldering burned-down cabin turns up nearby; Abby remotely suspects that someone died inside the shack; cadaver dogs find a charred body elsewhere. Local citizens give evasive, deceptive, and uncooperative answers, and a state trooper gives some insight. The team find the two pilots in two different places, and they solve both the disappearance and the related murder. Written by DocRushing

Quotes

[first lines]
Agent Caitlin Todd: [Tony is clipping his finger-nails at his desk when Kate walks in] Most people tend to their personal hygiene at home.
Agent Anthony 'Tony' DiNozzo: This bothers you?
Agent Caitlin Todd: No, what bothers me is that it doesn't bother me anymore.
Agent Anthony 'Tony' DiNozzo: I'm an acquired taste.
Agent Timothy McGee: Actually, it's more like the Stockholm Syndrome. The emotional attachment to a captor formed by a hostage as a result of continuous stress and a need to cooperate for survival.
