Like father, like son. Or vice versa. It's almost hilarious how they try to hid Senior's identity as long as possible.
They like their camera move of starting with the shoes and go up, huh?
Good morning, guys.
Hey. You're in a good mood.
How can you not be? This is my favourite time of year. The air is so crisp and so clean. I did what I always promised myself I would do. I... walked to work.
Good for you, Ziva.
What is that?
Something that's gonna wipe the smile right off your face. Mmm! Cold case files.
What am I supposed to do with them?
They're all pre-computerization. They need to be inputted into the system.
Well, that sounds like a job for a clerk.
It's a big job. And each file has to be reviewed by an agent.
Vance gave it to Gibbs, Gibbs gave it to me, I'm giving it to you, our most junior agent.
TEYLA!!! You just missed Cadman.
Ziva is so happy, and Tony is happy too just because he can give her the extra work. And Tim joins! He's so glad to not be the probie anymore.
Oh Tony. Your dad has got a good excuse this time. Sort of. And McGee and Gibbs recognize the movie reference.
Wait, they're respecting the procedure now? McGee and Penny were the last straw?
And Tim who keep looking at Tony.
I like how McGee avoids to look Tony when they walk near him.
And then warn him of Gibbs's arrival.
The plot is 'we know he was framed. But how, why, by who and more importantly, how to prove it?'
Hi, new secondary character to join the club of best secondary characters. Oh, Senior, that wasn't the good thing to say. In the other hand, he's doesn't try to hid anything. I like that he honestly wonder if he did it.
You didn't think you could buy me off with a piece of cake, did you?
Gibbs will never find out. How's he gonna know?
I'd have to tell him.
Well, then, I guess I'd have to tell him about your little antics at the Halloween party last month with Susan Grady from Polygraph down in the copy room. Huh? She was dressed as a nun, and you were dressed as Leroy Jethro Gibbs with a little silver wig?
Nobody knew about that.
I know. DeNiro... DiNozzo. I'm watching.
McGee warned me about you.
Wow, Susan, you're moving from McGee in style! But was it for Dorney, or for the Gibbs roleplay? And how did Tony find about it?
So nice of Tim to warn him about Tony. I'm imagining a secret reunion of the newbies where he gives a speech and a booklet in what to expect of Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo and how to deal with it.
Are you done yet?
Eat your cake.
Tim can't tell him no, even when he should. It's probably in the booklet. He's still looking for a way to succeed.
He's the picture of innocence, no? Vance believes it.
McGee and Ziva shop for new furniture. Tim likes the chairs, Ziva like the curtains.
He's hanging himself.
Don't give up hope, Tony.
I gave up hope when he started dating girls younger than me. And that was the late '80s.
Dorneget, take Mr. DiNozzo to the break room. Get him something to eat.
If he gives you any trouble, shoot him.
He's joking. I think.
"If I am? Cute? Oh, yes, I am. Thanks for noticing."
The little perks of working there.
Hello, best reminder ever of Leap of Faith. You remember the episode, it's when Tim faced his fear of height to save Tony and Tony told him 'I love you'. And also this other thing. With the couch. And the shrink. And the couple. And Vermont. And the first apparition of very Special Agent, used then to mean not straight.
So it's the same Jenn with the mails!! Well, now, you better hope she's not the gossiping type. I love McGee's smile. "Hi, nothing strange here, it happen often. You did get my booklet, right?"
And they just start again when she's gone!
And Tim still try to resist. But Tony use The Puppy Look. Who could resist?
Tony, you have to realize that we are working every angle possible. But we're one very special agent short.
Dear GG, Cardea and Schenck, thank you for taking care of my tinhat. It was getting dusty. It's just this short of 'I love you but I can't do more.'
Very special was used as innuendo, as teasing (when he presented Tony to the group of Probies last year), and now like that.
The little, quick smile.
One more thing. Where did Dennis claim to be? Because I... Tim, I told you Gibbs and Vance told me to stay away from the case. Sorry.
*snort* Senior look so smug! And Tim is getting his revenge for Tony's 'please, don't tell me about the case' quite quickly.
Ah, so he was drugged, then.
You don’t get it. Tony never wanted your money; he wants a father.
How'd it go with my father last night? Where is he?
You shot him. Can't say I blame you.
Are we supposed to recognize this case?
Yes, a nice Tony/Abby scene! With Pauley or Abby who hold back laughter.
Poor Abby, she's doing it again. Her work is condemning someone she cares about.
What do you mean, you don't know Abby? Are you new too, or FBI? I can't see the badge.
Aww, he called McGee. Who sound really relieved to hear him. (No, reaching for Tony/McGee moments would be linking Gibbs's comment of Tony deserving better with Tony's comment of there's no better when talking about Tim.)
Take off the cuffs.
You heard him.
I'm not sure why Senior went with them, but I'll accept it just for this scene. Gibbs is having fun.
Agent DiNozzo disobeyed direct orders from both of us. He stuck his nose in the case. What are you gonna do?
That's what I figured.
Aww, Tony. He could have called you. Unless it was supposed to be a surprise. And again, Gibbs is having a lot of fun.
Do something with this, Junior.
Want an apron?
YES! All done!!
