Day 14 - Favourite Quote

Now this is another difficult one as NCIS is chock full of wonderful quotes, it's something they do so well. I could go with half a dozen at least without even thinking about it.

However, I'm going to with:

"It's a technical term, Tobias."

It's from 'Smoked' (my third favourite episode) and from a wee scene in Abby's lab where Gibbs, Fornell, Abby and Tim are present. The entire little exchange goes like this:

GIBBS: McGee, less talk.  More the computer chip doo-da.   
MCGEE: Making with the Doo-da, Boss.   
FORNELL: Doo-da?   
GIBBS: Yeah, it’s a technical term, Tobias. You wouldn't understand. 

It's just such a perfect thing for Gibbs to say, given how technophobic we know he is and it's spot on banter between him and his second closest friend. And it also shows how well Tim now knows Gibbs, how he doesn't try to get techie, but happily uses Gibbs's own term.

It's also something J and I say often - so it's very memorable and meaningful to me. So over all of the ones I love, the ones that have significance for my pairings, this one is my favourite.
