SYNOPSIS
An abandoned car is found full of blood, registered to a missing Navy lieutenant. The NCIS team learns that the missing lieutenant was profiling men, trying to find a perfect man for herself. When they find out that the woman intended to go to a seminar at a local hotel, Ziva goes undercover to find more information. Ducky is busy going through the profiles of the men. Jenny makes a secret offer to Tony.
FUNNY MOMENTS

  • The opening scene between Tony and Jenny Shepard with the flowers.
  • Tony: "What's my motto McGee?", McGee: "Never date a woman that eats more than you do?"
  • Ziva: "You've been whining like a little snitch all week." Tony: The term is ''*****'. Ziva: "I know. I was being polite."
  • The expression on McGee's face when both Tony and Gibbs ask at the same time "Any hits?"
  • Tony looking sheepish when he acts as leader, while Gibbs looking amused every time.
  • The scene in Abby's lab where Gibbs 1) understood geek speak, 2) tried to make her jealous by telling her McGee found the name of the woman in the car, and Abby pulling him by the arm twice (hard).
  • Gibbs grooming his moustache in the mirror of the interrogation room.
  • Tony staring at Ziva's bottom during her "exercising" in the squad room. Ziva: "We could be missing something." Tony (staring at her butt): Believe me, not from this angle.
  • Tony calling the missing Lieutenant a female McGee.
  • When Gibbs wakes Abby by whispering in her ear, "Your computer's on fire." And both Abby and McGee jump to check computer temperature and stuff before realizing they are not alone.
  • When Tony, Ziva and McGee are playing on morph pro and Gibbs walks in when they are putting him and the Director on there!
  • Tony saying: "Even when Gibbs is her father, I am going to date her."
  • The team's reaction to McGee saying he thought of going to the speed dating event. Tony: "After this is over, you and I are going to have a little talk!"
  • Watching Ziva undercover as a nerd.
  • Ziva, after going through all undercover preparations, asking: can anyone please explain what speed dating is?
  • Tony: "Our big, bad spy doesn't do geek." Ziva: "Did he just say Greek?"
  • Seeing Gibbs' reactions to watching Ziva undercover as a nerd.
  • The whole Ziva speed dating scene. Gibbs: "Do turn up the charm Ziva David. You're a geek not deranged."
  • The interrogation of Calvin with Tony and Ziva - Ziva holding a grudge against his "innocent" harassment at the speed dating event, while Tony seemingly sympathizes with him.
More NCIS Quotes

DEVELOPMENT/INSIGHTS
  • Tony's real character shows when Jenny offers him his own team, his sense of responsibility and loyalty makes him hesitate to agree.
  • First time we hear about the undercover operation that Tony had undertaken.
  • Tony is deeply hurt by Ziva's comments on him being threatened by Gibbs' presence when he was doing his best to make Gibbs feel at home again, and then later by Tim's comment on him being only a temporary leader because Gibbs quit and that he is not capable of having his own team, specially when he was already offered it by Jenny.
  • Even with Tony falling every now and then into the role of the team leader, Gibbs is amused and in many scenes seems proud of him.
  • Gibbs watching the team's treatment of Tony after his return and talking to McGee about it.
  • Tony enjoys being the team leader and sometimes may even miss it, but still believes he has lot more to learn from Gibbs.
  • Gibbs acts different with that moustache and it surprises the team and possibly catches them off guard.
  • McGee is more bothered now when Tony calls him Probie.
  • Ducky conducting a psychological autopsy because he has a degree in forensic psychology.
  • There is some odd tension growing between Gibbs and Ducky.
  • Abby is jealous of Gibbs' attention to McGee.

EPISODE TRIVIA

  • The song playing in the opening is "Strict Machine" by Goldfrapp.
  • At the start of the episode, the girl driving the car is wearing the same top as 'Marta' (evil Hamas chick, friends with Ari and now dead) did in 'Reveille'.
  • When McGee uses MorphPro on Tony and Ziva the result is a baby, but just before that he said that MorphPro is used to predict the appearance of your adult offspring. Continuity mistake much?

Mulchahy Tony as team leader 3 Aug 13 2009, 4:31 PM EDT by Mulchahy

This episode (at least for me) marked the end of Tony being team leader. I personally did not like Tony as team leader. I found it awkward having McGee call him Boss and it almost made him an equal to Gibbs. It just felt wierd to watch. So I guess i am asking, did you like Tony as team leader or should that job just stick with Gibbs?
