    Mcabby101 Sean's Nickname 0 Jun 3 2010, 6:28 PM EDT by Mcabby101

    I saw a video on Youtube with Sean and Pauley where she talks about Sean's nickname,"baby duck".but it has bad audio. Does anyone know where this clip is from so I may try to locate it to see it with better audio? Sean's giggle at the beginning is SO adorable! Thanks! Also, way to go on whomever put this list together. Something
    tells me next season Tony will have more names for Tim. = )
    Do you find this valuable?

    I'd like to note this name.

    It is Spanish for The Boss or Boss man.

    I saw it in my cousins blog, her husband is in Afghanistan and his nickname if Heff from Heffe (real name is Jeff).

    I heard it in NCIS earlier today and was like Hey! I never knew why Abby called him this until now.
