* You know how, in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', Tony keeps making pop culture references, while Ziva can hardly get ''any'' idiom right? Notice how Tony's always talking about his sex while Ziva rarely does? Notice how Tony's quotes cause people to underestimate him, while it's implied Ziva misquotes on purpose to produce the same effect? [[ShipTease Notice how they mirror each other in a few other ways]]? -- {{Tropers.Jonn}}
** The ME's name is Donald Mallard. A mallard, as his nickname (Ducky) implies, is a duck. Essentially, we have a character named "DonaldDuck" on the show. -- Tsunoba
*** That is in his backstory as how he got the nickname: he was a fan of Donald Duck and his name worked perfectly for it, so other kids took to calling him that.
** At first glance, [=McGee=] appears to be the {{Unfavorite}} (at least compared to Abby, Tony and Ziva) where Gibbs is concerned. But after a few seasons of watching Gibbs interact with various people, it's clear that he cares about [=McGee=] as much as any member of his team. But while [[ObfuscatingStupidity Tony]], [[ActionGirl Ziva]] and [[HotScientist Abby]] are allowed to operate with a freer hand (in part because of their respective experience levels and individual personalities), [=McGee=] is kept on a shorter leash because he HAS to be. He has [[AbsentMindedProfessor a tendency to get lost in the details]], become easily distracted by issues in his private life (women, his writing, video games) and occasionally is still intimidated by power (a disadvantage when investigating crimes occasionally involving high-ranking officials). But thanks in part to [[PapaWolf Gibbs]] and his "tough love", he's now a [[NerdActionHero more proficient agent]] and seems far more comfortable in his own skin. And thus, a much more effective member of the team. Now, if Gibbs ever does join [[BadassGrandpa Mike Franks]] in Mexico (or wherever), he can be completely confident that NCIS (and ''NCIS'') is in good hands. And one also gets the feeling that he's training Palmer in the exact same manner. -- ''[=TVsTim1=]''
* In the pilot episode "Yankee White" it is not really strange Gibbs knew the plot of ''Film/AirForceOne'' and about the traitor. [[NamesTheSame The traitor was also named Gibbs.]] Because of the same name and NCIS!Gibbs' patriotism he remembered the plot out of dislike of his name being the name of a traitor.

** The assassin could have filched it. Also, sometimes it's faster to get something from someone else rather than take the time to look for it yourself, especially if you had no idea where exactly the object is.

*In the episode "Life Before His Eyes," Gibbs spends most of the episode in a 'purgatory' diner [[spoiler:populated by the people in his life, both living and dead]]. Only one [[spoiler:currently living]] character says anything to Gibbs inside the diner: [[spoiler:Ducky]], because [[spoiler:Duck talks to the dead.]]

** It gets more interesting: [[spoiler: Gibbs daughter was around 9-10 when she was taken from Gibbs. Ziva ends up being with Gibbs for 8 years before leaving. In essence, Gibbs had a daughter for roughly 18 years and had an experience of letting his daughter leave the nest.]]

* In "Faking It", an early season 4 episode, the team's prime suspect and [[spoiler: murderer of the week]] is connected to an arms dealer the CIA is using named [[spoiler: Arkady Kobach, who is killed by Mike Franks]]. A few episodes later, the team learns that La Grenouille is [[spoiler: being handled by the CIA]], and at the start of season 5, it's suggested that he is [[spoiler: actually a CIA asset]]. Maybe after [[Kobach died]], they brought La Grenouille to take his place, and spite NCIS.

* At the end of season 12 premiere "Twenty Klicks", Vance mentions to Gibbs that [[spoiler: Sergei survived Gibbs shooting him]]. Gibbs thinks it's impossible, but it's very possible. How? [[spoiler: Sergei]] was one of Ari's friends, and took a page from [[spoiler: "Bete Noire" - a bulletproof vest that took Gibbs's rounds]].
