* In "Reasonable Doubt", [=DiNozzo=] Sr runs into a homeless woman who believes that he's her father. Over the course of the episode, it's revealed that she ran away from home because her real father rejected her for being gay, was suffering dementia, and had a brain tumor. At the end of the episode, she's taken to a hospital and her condition is diagnosed as terminal. [=DiNozzo=] Sr then walks into her room and plays along with her delusion so that she can die believing that she finally reconciled with the (long-deceased) father she hadn't spoken to in years.

Then Gibbs gets a phone call from Agent Pride in New Orleans saying that Luca Scuito was on that plane. While it's eventually revealed that he wasn't actually on the plane, for ten eternal minutes it looks like Abby had just killed her little brother.

* The end of season six. When Tony's sitting in the squadroom without [[spoiler: Ziva, trying to explain to Abby and [=McGee=] that it wasn't Gibbs or Vance who made Ziva stay in Israel...it was Ziva herself. Made much worse by how we know that Gibbs believes she's been lying to him, Tony believes she hates him and Ziva herself thinks Gibbs doesn't want her there... and then we switch to the scene of Ziva tied to a chair in Somalia, her face bruised and bloody.]]

'''Abby''': ''(visibly struggling for control)'' No...What I really need to know, Gibbs, is if you're gonna love me, no matter what.\\
''([[PastelChalkedFreezeFrame grey-out]], credits.)''
* "Broken Bird". Ducky is forced to face a monster who psychologically tortured him years ago while he served as a doctor in an Afghan refugee camp. But what brought it home was the very end when Ducky returns to work, quieter than ever before, and proceeds to break down in his girlfriend Jordan's arms.

* The ending of "Till Death Do Us Part". While the fates of [[spoiler: Gibbs, Abby, [=McGee=], Tony, and Ziva]] are up in the air, the finale of the entire episode comes on a beach, where the shock of [[spoiler: NCIS HQ's bombing and there being dead from the attack causes Ducky to suffer a seemingly fatal heart attack. The final gray-out of the season occurs with a shot of Ducky laying on his side, convulsing in pain.]] Especially painful was the thought that "oh, Ducky's heartbroken but at least he's safe--[[spoiler: ''oh holy shit, is he having a heart attack?''"]]

** And Gibbs' hallucinations [[spoiler:of Kate]] in the next episode [[spoiler: "Why me Gibbs? Wasn't taking one bullet enough for you? Why did i have to take two?!" and "Why did i die instead of you?!"]]
** Notable when compared to the others - everyone else is seeing her offering statements of how it's okay and they're going to be all right, even joking around. Gibbs sees her berating him, yelling at him, just in general angry, and specifically at him. It makes the finale, of her [[spoiler: in her coffin, gently ribbing him about being late to her funeral,]] turn the tears to ones of joy.
* In the end of the season ten episode "Shabbat Shalom", Ziva, normally the most reserved member of the cast after Gibbs, screams and breaks down into a weeping mess [[spoiler: when she sees that her father has been shot to death by an assassin. This was after she was going to turn him in for murder too.]] This was the woman who [[spoiler:shot her own brother and only uttered a quiet, but sad, prayer afterward.]] Seeing her in such a state for the first time in eight years is just heartbreaking.

* On an earlier-season note, "Once A Hero" brought the tears, but for a different reason. Firstly, once [[spoiler:it was clear what actually had happened and that the deceased Marine had been trying to ''save'' a teenaged prostitute before he was killed]], and somewhat cathartic tears once [[spoiler: they found all the other girls locked in that van]].
