** 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.

* TalkingDownTheSuicidal: Season 14's "Keep Going" centers around Jimmy trying to keep the son of the victim of the week from jumping off a building while the rest of the team tracks down down the killer. At the end of the episode Gibbs catches the killer, explains to the son that the killer would have tracked down and killed his father no matter what the son had done, and the young man goes back inside, at which point Palmer gets a standing ovation from all the emergency workers who'd been watching him for the past several hours.
