** Subverted in "Bete Noir", when Gibbs asks if Kate and Tony checked the computer of the man whose house they were sent to search. Kate says he didn't even have a GameBoy. Tony points out a Game Boy is a handheld system, and she's thinking more of an XBox or {{Playstation 2}}. ** Also Subverted with Killscreen. The information given about killscreens is completely accurate, but killscreens are almost non-existant in modern games because of how they are designed and don't consist of a single screen as how killscreens are explained in the episode.

* ThePollyanna: Luca, Abby's younger brother [[spoiler: "the one [she] grew up with" not the long-lost biological one]] has ''ridiculously'' good faith in people. This has led him to be suckered into at least one Ponzi scheme and in the cross-over with ''NCISNOLA'' he is unshakably certain that Eva, a woman he's let into his home and has a crush on, is a good person despite everyone telling him she's isn't due to the fact that she [[spoiler: is a Russian spy, hid listening devices, guns, and money in his apartment, drugged him and left him in a motel, and used him as bait for an assassin. Turns out he's actually right and she was doing everything to prevent the Russians from getting top secret technology]]. ** He points out that his habit of "helping strays" must be biological since [[spoiler: his parents helped Abby, "sight unseen"]].

** Tony would've been fired for sexual harassment of Kate before the end of the first season in a normal workplace. The show eventually hangs a lampshade on this when the team goes to a sensitivity training seminar, where Tony doesn't pay attention. To fix this, Ziva licks him.

** On another occasion, Tony baits Ziva into saying something bad about Gibbs. She almost falls for it, then turns around because she knows Gibbs will doubtless be coming up behind her. He's actually in MTAC.

'''Tony:'''Well Saleem, there's only one force on Earth that can short circuit a man's better instincts, put fire in his veins, makes him dive head long into danger with no regard for his own well being... Vengeance, Saleem. I'm here to kill you.

* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Abby is a wonderfully chipper woman but she does seem at times to not understand how terrible some human beings can be and stunned at a truly grisly murder case. ** Her brother, Luca, is actually worse as Abby notes he assumes anyone he tries to help is a wonderful person who deserves it. This attitude has caused him to unknowingly invest in Ponzi schemes and help a woman fleeing her ex who turns out to be a Russian spy wanted for murder. Despite hearing the truth, Luca still insists on helping her and is stunned the woman turns out to be so dangerous.

*** Suggestive comments: in Sub Rosa, [[spoiler:an emergency blow on a nuclear sub throws Kate into Gibbs' arms. His response to her "Wow"? "That's what they all tell me"]]. In My Other Left Foot, Gibbs also claimed to know [[spoiler:that the tattoo on Kate's butt was not a rose]]. It's also Gibbs, not Tony, who suggests Kate try on the [[spoiler:Puerto Rican two piece Tony gave her - a bikini bottom and a hat]], a comment that would be unremarkable from Tony, but is not nearly so typical of Gibbs.
