** Season 12's "Check", where the Big Bad taunted Gibbs by replicating the murders of Jenny Shepherd (occurred in Season 5), Mike Franks (occurred in Season 8), and capped it off by luring Gibbs and ex-wife Diane to a rooftop. Cue Gibbs' dawning horror as he looked at the surroundings and realized Diane was about to be sniped down just like Caitlin Todd a decade earlier (Season 2).

** Very early in the show's run it's explained that Tony snagged a nice apartment for cheap because it was the site of a triple homicide. This is the basis for the plot of a recent episode when the apartment's new occupant, [=McGee=], is nearly killed by two intruders seeking loot left behind the original murderer (they were all involved in a smuggling operation).

* ArcadeSounds: Subverted in the episode "Honor Code". The sounds heard from the NintendoDS are, in fact, the sounds of the user's info (date, time, etc.) being entered into a brand new Nintendo DS.

* ReplacementGoldfish: In the literal sense. Tony keeps actual goldfish as pets, one of which is named Kate after his partner of the same name who was killed early in the series. Later, [[spoiler: when Ziva leaves the team to stay in Israel, he [[TearJerker names the other after her.]]]]

* {{Dramedy}}: The series gets downright serious at times and AnyoneCanDie, but there's enough humor and good jokes thrown in to make it lighter.

''NCIS'' is an American primetime television series created by Creator/DonaldPBellisario and Don [=McGill=] for Creator/{{CBS}} about [[CrimeAndPunishmentSeries Navy criminal investigators]]. The show is a spinoff of ''Series/{{JAG}}'' ([[LongRunner 1995-2005]]), which in addition to the parent series’ [[MilitaryAndWarfareTelevision military theme]] and occasional SpyDrama also leaped on the ForensicDrama bandwagon started by ''Series/{{CSI}}''. NCIS stands for "Naval Criminal Investigative Service"; like ''JAG'', it is based on a real organization within the Department of the Navy, and also much less action-packed in real life than the [[RuleOfCool Hollywood-style fictionalized version the show depicts]]. The organization is the criminal investigative arm of the Navy and Marines, though it is a civilian law enforcement agency, unlike the Army's CID, where the investigators are military.

* CharacterDevelopment: Everyone gets some, but in particular: Tony starts out as TheBigGuy in the first 2 seasons, then becomes TheLancer during season 3 and during season 4 he becomes co-hero with Gibbs. [=McGee=], at first, was the NaiveNewcomer, then during season 2 he became TheSmartGuy and around season 4 developed into TheLancer.

** NCIS apparently employs only one medical examiner with one assistant, and only one forensics lab tech with no assistants. While it's suggested there are substitutes for when they are not at work, they are still called in on emergency cases in their off hours. In reality, both departments would have large staffs just to handle all the work.
