* LifeImitatesArt: [[Recap/NCISS14E12 "Off The Grid"]]'s Big Bad was an anti-government militiaman who hid his true nature so well he became a member of the Energy department just so he could get his hands on nuclear waste to make a dirty bomb. It's [[FunnyAneurysmMoment somewhat less funny]] now that [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabinet_of_Donald_Trump the head of the EPA wants to severely restrict the department (if not get rid of it altogether), added pictures of coal mining and removed references to climate change on the EPA website, the Secretary of Energy wanted to eliminate the department before knowing what it actually did, the Secretary of the Interior thinks lead bullets are fine for the environment, the Secretary of Education prefers private and charter schools to public schools, and the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development flat-out admitted he had no experience in that department]].

Added DiffLines:

* ThrowItIn: Gibbs' famous DopeSlap resulted from Harmon genuinely giving one to Weatherly, who he felt was goofing off too much while filming a scene (ironically, the very reason Gibbs usually gives them to people). TPTB thought it was hilarious and encouraged Harmon to make it a character tic. In true Harmon style, he gives the credit to ''Weatherly'' for not breaking character or stopping the scene.
