NCIS EPISODE RECAP
"THE MISSIONARY POSITION"
airdate: April 10, 2012
written by: Allison Abner
directed by: Arvin Brown

SYNOPSIS
Following the murder of a Marine, Tony and Ziva join Ziva’s longtime friend and mentor in Columbia in a search for a missing Marine Lieutenant and Navy Chaplain. Meanwhile, Jimmy Palmer decides who will be his best man. (CBS Press Release)
FUNNY MOMENTS

  • Palmer's "reveal" of his wedding tux -- and the team's reactions to it.

  • "Poor guy, he looks like a pretzel." "An a-saulted pretzel?"

  • "McGee's idea of an incredible party is a bunch of free corn nuts and an Xbox marathon." "Sounds pretty good to me!"

  • Did Abby really suggest that "nude ice hockey" might be part of Palmer's bachelor party?

  • Manny running from McGee. Clang! Thud. No more running. Gibbs makes it seem effortless yet again.

DEVELOPMENT/INSIGHTS

  • Gibbs and the Doc have clearly taken another step in their relationship... and Ryan enjoys the way the sunlight shines into the bedroom in the morning. But she's still not ready to have her son, Parker, meet Gibbs.

  • Abby will be Palmer's "Best Man" at the wedding.

  • Even Palmer thinks the wedding tuxes are bad: "So bad it's good, right?"

  • Ryan really wants to "chat" with Monique Lisson; while Lisson has become involved in something that's not turning out well.

  • Monique urges Ziva to find happiness within her self, and to find "someone" to avoid "a lifetime of cold beds and memories".

EPISODE TRIVIA

  • Retired Interpol Agent Monique Lisson is Ziva’s longtime mentor. Ziva describes her as "The big sister I never had."

  • Commander Maria Castro has apparently replaced Lt. Commander Melanie Burke as the Navy Yard Chaplain.

So tune in and chat about the episode.

callerbear Palmer's Wedding Tux 1 Apr 12 2012, 3:47 AM EDT by codename:mara

Couldn't believe the tux. Think I wore one exactly like that (well, the jacket anyway -- my shirt was white) to a high school prom.

What were we thinking?

It'll be interesting to see all of the groomsmen (Ducky and Abby included) dressed like that in the Season Finale. And what will Ziva be wearing?
