* IntergenerationalFriendship: The rest of the team with Ducky (in his 70s) and Gibbs (in his 50s). In early seasons Ducky and Abby even indulged in occasional intergenerational flirtation, while Gibbs and Abby still do.


Added DiffLines:

* InsuranceFraud: In the episode "Reasonable Doubt", the team is faced with a dead officer, with his wife and mistress accusing each other of the murder. They can't arrest either of them, because the physical evidence is so ambiguous that no matter which one they charge, any decent lawyer could establish reasonable doubt that it might have been the other one. It turned out to not be a murder at all, and the two women faked the crime scene because the man's life insurance wouldn't pay out on a suicide.

* JediMindTrick: When Team Gibbs is questioning a random hotel desk clerk, he claims the person they are looking for pulled one of these on him.
* JerkJock: Though not in high school, Tony, especially in early [=McGee=] episodes. Incidentally, his major was Phys. Ed.
** Tony's high school basketball teammates were even worse because they were, basically, an AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil (complete with [[RedArmbandOfLeadership red arm bands]] [[YellowSashOfPower of enforcement]]) who terrorize underclassmen with impunity. Tony thought they were disbanded after they were caught attacking him but he was simply left alone [[spoiler: on orders of his beloved coach who allowed the abuse to continue into the present day because "it's school tradition"]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Tony, he skirts into JerkAss territory.
* JoinTheArmyTheySaid: The VictimOfTheWeek in one episode was an unscrupulous Marine recruiter who made promises that would never be met, such as promising one recruit that he would be trained as a medic. As Gibbs points out, the Marine Corps doesn't have medics; they use Navy corpsmen.
* JurisdictionFriction[=/=]RightHandVersusLeftHand: The team frequently run into jurisdiction issues with the FBI and other government organizations.

** 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.
* KnowYourVines: While investigating a murder in a national park [=McGee=] has to search a patch of poison ivy for a murder weapon. Tony recognises what the plant is, but when Tim says he can handle things, Tony doesn't correct him.
