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.

This is one of my all-time faves as well! I love it so much, I even have an icon for it! *points*

I think some of the best one-liners on the show are between Gibbs and Fornell. Still get a giggle fit whenever I see that scene in "Jack-Knife" when Gibbs goes to Fornell's house early in the morning, and poor sleepy Tobias (new! improved! with beard!) opens the door.

Gibbs: "What happened to your face?"
Fornell: "What happened to your arm?" (Gibbs had it in a sling because he had been hit by a car)
Gibbs: "The job."
Fornell: "The same."

They're so wonderfully deadpan. *g*

Oh, really? That's good to hear! It's such a good quote. And you have a very nice icon indeed.

Oh, they really are.

Oh, that one. Yes, I love that too - so perfect.

They really are.

Ha, that's brilliant! xD I also went with an S4 quote.

I love the way Gibbs and Fornell play off each other - Fornell is one of my favorite recurring characters - I get so excited whenever he is on - I would love to have a new episode with both him and Kort in it... how great would that be?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 15th June 2011 09:12 (UTC) (Link)
They really are so good together.

He's my favourite recurring character, I wish we had more of him. Now a wish for Kort and Fornell in the same episode has been raised by a lot of people.

I know they were all in 'Internal Affairs', but that didn't count really - we need scenes when they are all together.
