Gibbs — the show is pointless without him (and was for those couple of episodes)

Wouldn’t it be great to see Gibbs perform his attention getting device to the back of Obama’s head. Maybe Barry would figure things out.

Unofficial Rule A: Never say apologise, as it’s a sign of weakness.
Unofficial Rule B: We don’t believe in coincidence.
Unofficial Rule C: But we do believe in bad luck.
Unofficial Rule D: Don’t speak geekspeak, speak English.
Unofficial Rule E: Headslap only the back of your underlings’ heads: anything else would be demeaning (Gibbs once said a slap on the face was humiliating, whereas a cuff to the back of the head was a wakeup call).
Unofficial Rule F: Always anticipate
Unofficial Rule G: Know how to do every job that your underlings can do (this rule falls down if one your underlings happens to be Tim McGee, but we would all get a good laugh watching Gibbs trying to hack into the CIA’s computers)
Unofficial Rule H: If a computer doesn’t work, hit it.
Unofficial Rule I: Always acknowledge good work by underlings.
Unofficial Rule J: When using Truth by Intimidation, always remain silent for at least a count of 5 after doing the act of intimidation, at which point the canary will sing.
Unofficial Rule K: When in the interrogation room, stop the recording devices when the information strays into personal matters irrelevant to the investigation (e.g., don’t ask/don’t tell rules for gay Marines, revelations of unrequited love)
Unofficial Rule L: When your cell phone breaks, have DiNozzo “fix” it (unwrap a new one from the supply drawer)
Unofficial Rule M: Always ask for permission to touch the body: it belongs to the M.Examiner (Ducky has been known to get stroppy if anyone spoils his crime scene, he reportedly threw somebody down a hill).
Unofficial Rule N: When doing a shootout, don’t kill the hostage and avoid shooting off their ear.
Unofficial Rule O: Don’t call Ziva ‘Ma’am’ and don’t call Jenny ‘Madam Director’, if you want to live.
Unofficial Rule P: When hacking the CIA, give underlings a get out of jail free pass.
Unofficial Rule Q: When breaking others’ rules, do not get caught.
Unofficial Rule R: If you want to gain access to a secure area to investigate, carry a cup of coffee and some paperwork and act like you belong.
Unofficial Rule S: Never, ever (ever) get Ziva angry.

Just started watching this show on re-runs on USA channel. The family is now hooked - each character is interesting, but the show would be nothing without Gibbs (no relation to Robert “Baghdad Bob” Gibbs).

Gibbs: “Anticipate McGee” (after Gibbs cuffed the buy at the EXIT to the wash)

#1 is Gibbs, #2 is Abby.

Gibbs is cool. He’s tough and authoritative but his people love him. Great leadership qualities! I love his little grin when they think he isn’t looking.

I thought Abby was sort of goofy until I read her Bio. I was very impressed with her as a person as well as an actress.

What happened to Kate? I really liked her but I missed the episode where something happened to her and she was replaced by the the other girl.

Unofficial Rule A: Never say apologise, as it’s a sign of weakness.

My ex-wife firmly believed this rule. She would NEVER say she was sorry, she considered it a sign of weakness..I’d always find a new shirt, pants, jeans, whatever which could never, ever, ever take the place of a simple “I’m sorry”..

In an ensemble cast, it’s difficult to choose, but I started watching because of Ducky (my favorite U.N.C.L.E. spy) with his Higgins’-like memories/knowledge (and accent), stayed because it’s fun to watch McGee and DiNozzo bicker (and even more fun when McGee wins) and might find it too stale if they ever replace Ziva and her Mossad attitude, the most interesting female agent they’ve had. Okay, one shouldn’t discount Abby, who is certainly the most unusual agent in NCIS. Poor Gibbs is last on the list, but only because his character is the least humorous; however, who wouldn’t want him on their side in a tough spot?

I’m convinced that Ziva swings both ways based on comments she’s made..

That said, I’d hit it..:)

Kate was murdered by an ongoing villain called Ari Haswari. I pretty much quit watching the show after that. Surprised its still going strong these many years later.

She was killed by an assassin. Was shot in the forehead right in front of everybody.

I don’t think she “swings both ways” unless it’s for a mission or to throw DiNozzo off balance, but I haven’t seen every episode yet.

Abby and Gibbs are a toss up. Neither would be as good without the other. Only Abby can get away with stuff with Gibbs, she brings out the softer side of him.

Gibbs, looks out for his people, on & off the job, Ziva & her Mossad attitude. McGee & Abby. Ducky of course!
Love the show, have most seasons on dvd for my mom when she was dying. Don’t need them as they are on reruns every nite after Glen Beck. (and during, but Glen and Country come first)

I missed the episode where Kate was killed but I saw the episode when they brought Ziva in. Nobody wanted her to take Kate’s desk. I like Ziva though. I like her because she intimidates DiNozzo. I feel sorry for McGee.

The characters are all great, but Gibbs is my favorite. Am a sucker for the male leaders.:-) Abby gets on my nerves a tad because her character is immature, and hurting herself with bad habits. Also, she looks to me like she's hiding her real age under the “Goth” get-up.” That said, I love that she can talk honestly and freely to all the other characters, especially Gibbs. The character development makes this show really enduring. Two negatives: too much pretense that fornication is without consequences, and a little too macabre. Like “Ducky” I feel the dead deserve respect. That doesn't mean you can't show gore, but some shots are pretty cheap and hokey.
