Storyline

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. Written by DocRushing

Although the shot is very brief, it appears that he wears a couple of British campaign 'Stars' - issued only for the Second World War, making 'Ducky' a minimum of 80 years old. See more »

Quotes

Tony DiNozzo: The Raniers obviously stole something they want, you're going to give it to them.
Ziva David: We don't have it!
Tony DiNozzo: You're going to tell them it's in our hotel room and offer to show them. McGee should be waiting there with backup.
Ziva David: Good plan, except for one minor drawback.
Tony DiNozzo: What?
Ziva David: When I leave, they'll most likely put a bullet through your head.
Tony DiNozzo: Oh... well, I didn't say it was a perfect plan.
