Gibbs' Head Slap
Apr 18 2008, 3:46 PM EDT | Post edited: Apr 18 2008, 3:46 PM EDT
I know that the "head slap" originated one day on set during rehearsal. Michael W. was going on and on ... kidding around ... and Mark H. gave him a head slap to bring him back to the moment. Everyone got such a hoot out of it that it was decided to keep it in the script and let Gibbs use it from then on. My question is: does anyone have anymore information about that day? What was Michael actually doing .. ad libbing probably. Help anyone? 2  out of 2 found this valuable. Do you?

According to an interview with Michael when he was in Melbourne last year... he was adlibbing and going off course, and Mark whalloped him one! Mark is a true professional and Michael admitted that he was driving Mark nuts with his adlibbing and goofing around on set. 3  out of 3 found this valuable. Do you?

What do you think:
Can we start an overview of all head slapping scenes so far?
It would be cool to have collection of the scenes like this:

3x04 8min55sec:
Ziva and Gibbs talking in the elevator.
Gibbs: I trust you. You know that. But when we leave this elevator…
Ziva: You start kicking my butt.
Gibbs: I don’t kick butt.
... and then slaps her head .-)

*laughs* That would take several pages. Especially if we include the headslaps Tony gives McGee.

Unfortunately the interview wasn't an online one.

These days most of the headslaps are scripted.

Then I guess the most recent would be the sustained "Gibbs' slap by hat" in "Flesh and Blood". Or does that not count? as it appeared to be more of a beating than a slap!
