When speaking to the truck driver in Midtown Callen identifies himself and tells the driver to abort the protocol and gives the driver the verification code Alpha, Charlie, Zulu. The driver radios in to the dispatcher and Is told to release the truck to Agent Callen. Now, the driver never told the dispatcher Callen' s name, but the dispatcher knew it anyway. Here's how, earlier it was stated that Sam and Callen consulted on the security protocol. The verification code Callen gave the driver was probably unique to Callen. Alpha-Agent, Charlie- Callen, and Zulu is another form of military time most commonly used by the Navy, thus designating Agent Callen NCIS. See more »


Agent Callen take cover behind a Dozer bucket when Chambers is firing at him. The bucket takes multiple hits from Chamber's 9mm handgun leaving several large holes visible. The Bucket on a Dozer is made of very thick heavy gauge steel and would not sustain any noticeable damage from a small pistol cartridge. Anything less than a large caliber high powered rifle with AP rounds would do nothing but scratch such heavy metal. See more »
