Day #21 - Favourite Ducky episode or moment

My favourite Ducky episode is the Season 2 episode 'The Meat Puzzle' - one of my top five episodes.

I love it from beginning to end not only because it's Ducky heavy but also because it's Gibbs/Ducky heavy.

Ducky is marvellous in this episode. It has a superb case. We get to see Mrs. Mallard who is utterly wonderful. I love Tony as the Italian furniture-moving-dog-hairdresser gigolo - he's so good. I love that it's Jimmy who comes up with the idea about the teeth and Abby helps him. Gibbs in full 'mother hen' mode is superb, he's so concerned for Ducky. And when he's in the Interrogation room threatening to pull all the teeth out of Jonathan Hanlan's head if Ducky is hurt - well, I believe him; it is no idle threat; he means it! The rescue scene is superb and the way Vincent Hanlan takes his life is really shocking.

And again, despite it being a Ducky-centric and heavy episode, it isn't to the exclusion of the rest of the team - quite the opposite. The team all have their parts to play and do them so well. I really love how concerned they all are about Ducky.

And as an aside it is the episode that got me into writing NCIS. My first NCIS story was based on the exchange between Gibbs and Kate when Kate asks Gibbs what Ducky looked like when he was younger and Gibbs says 'Illya Kuryakin'. I wrote an NCIS/MFU crossover with G/D & N/I.
