Season 1

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs is the leader of a team of special agents belonging to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Major Case Response Team. Gibbs, a former Marine, is a tough investigator and a highly skilled interrogator who relies on his gut instinct as much as evidence. Gibbs' second in command is Senior Field Agent Tony DiNozzo, a womanizing, movie-quoting former Baltimore Homicide Detective, who despite being the class clown always gets the job done. The team also consists of Officer Ziva David, a Mossad officer who is a skilled fighter, as well as Junior Field Agent Timothy McGee, a computer-savvy agent often mocked by DiNozzo. Assisting them are Abby Sciuto, the energetic-but-Goth lab tech who is like a daughter to Gibbs, and Dr. Donald Mallard, nicknamed Ducky, the eccentric medical examiner full of unusual stories. This team of elite agents, based in Washington.

Gibbs has a series of rules he lives by - in this episode we hear
  • Rule Number One: Never let suspects stay together.
  • Rule Number Two: Always wear gloves at a crime scene.
  • Rule Number Three: Don't believe what you're told. Double check.
  • and the unnumbered rule Never say you're sorry.

Major changes/issues to the series story line
  • No one knows who NCIS is
  • FBI Parnell was called Tom in this episode - all the rest Tobias
  • Gibbs & Parnell act like they don't know each other at all - but it is later revealed that Parnell married Gibbs 2nd ex wife AFTER Gibbs told him not too
  • Tony is the movie buff & Gibbs seems a little slow on the movie quotes, but in this episdoe its all about Gibbs being the movie nut.
