NCIS
#208 : L'ultime recours

Synopsis: Le capitaine de frégate Mickael Bornan est immolé par le feu en plein sommeil sur son lit d'hôpital. Il s'était plaint auparavant de douleurs à la poitrine et fut rapidement opéré à coeur ouvert. Selon le docteur Bayers, responsable de l'intervention, le patient a mené la vie dure au personnel du service. Le NCIS conclut à un assassinat. Notamment avec l'officier Evan Hayers, dont le père avait maintes fois remis en place le jeune Bornan, à l'époque sous ses ordres. Seulement, Hayers, n'affectionnant pas particulièrement l'uniforme, a déserté ses quartiers.

GIBBS: Name?    
TONY: Commander Michael Dornan, Safety Officer on the Kennedy.      
GIBBS: Which just got back from the Gulf.    
TONY:` Yeah, Friday.  He’d been complaining of chest pains.  Had open heart surgery four days ago.  The doctor who led the team that operated on him is on the way in.    
GIBBS: I’ll talk to him.

 INT. HOSPITAL ROOM – DAY     
     
TONY: Oh!  That had to hurt.    
GIBBS: What started the fire, Duck?    
DUCKY: The source of the conflagration appears to be internal.  The majority of the damage is confined to the torso.     
KATE: He was receiving oxygen through a nasal canula.    
DUCKY: Still it would have needed a source of ignition, and I seriously doubt it could have caused this kind of damage.    
KATE: Could he have been smoking in bed?    
TONY: The Corpsman saw him ten seconds before the explosion.  Dornan was out cold.    
MCGEE: Boss, listen, I know this may sound far fetched, but…    
GIBBS: Will you spit it out, McGee?    
MCGEE: Spontaneous human combustion.    
GIBBS: (BEAT)  Where’s the surgeon?    
TONY: She’s in the waiting room.  Just got here.  (TO MCGEE)  Probie, what are you thinking?  Spontaneous human combustion?  It’s an urban myth.    
DUCKY: Actually, Tony, we shouldn’t disregard the notion.  Stories of the phenomenon go way back to the Bible in fact.  But it wasn’t popularized until Dickens.    
JIMMY: Charles Dickens?    
DUCKY: Yes, he used spontaneous combustion to kill off one of his characters, Mister Krook, in the novel Bleak House.  It caused a minor uproar.  Dickens was accused of perpetuating the age-old superstition.    
TONY: I saw that movie.    
DUCKY: The silent version or the British miniseries?    
TONY: They were talking.

BYERS: Commander Dornan was complaining of pain.  He insisted the night staff call me in.    
GIBBS: Insisted?    
BYERS: The Commander liked to throw his weight around – especially with the junior nurses and the corpsmen.    
GIBBS: Normal post op pain?    
BYERS: To appease him I did an echocardiogram and he was fine.  I gave him a Percocet for the pain so he could fall asleep.    
DUCKY: Ah… Jethro, I’ll be--    
GIBBS: You headed back?    
DUCKY: Yeah.    

 
GIBBS: Commander Byers, this is Doctor Mallard, our M.E.      
DUCKY: Hi.    
GIBBS: Doctor Byers is the surgeon that operated on the victim.    
DUCKY: Oh!    
GIBBS: Doctor Mallard is a man of few words.  I don’t have any more questions for you right now, Doctor.  Thank you for your time.    
BYERS: Sure.    
  (GIBBS WALKS O.S.)   
DUCKY: What exactly was the procedure?    
BYERS: Aortic valve repair.    
DUCKY: Congenital aortic stenosis?    
BYERS: Acquired.    
DUCKY: And the prognosis?    
BYERS: Everything went real well.  I was expecting Commander Dornan to be back on active duty in two months.    
DUCKY: Oh, thank you.  Uh… I may have to ask you a question or two after the autopsy.    
BYERS: I’ll give you my numbers.    
  (KATE YAWNS)   
TONY: It’s too bad you didn’t get to bed at a sensible hour.  I mean sleep because obviously you were in bed.    
KATE: I get it, Tony.    
GIBBS: McGee.    
MCGEE: Yeah, boss?    
GIBBS: Stay here.  Meet with the engineers and the plant manager.  I want this oxygen system completely checked out.    
MCGEE: On it, boss.    
GIBBS: Everything in this room goes back to Abby.    
KATE: Everything? (BEAT)  Right.

JIMMY: It looks like he burned from the inside out.    
DUCKY: He does, doesn’t he, Mister Palmer?  Oh, that’s the remains of his stomach.  Make sure they get to Abigail for content analysis.    
JIMMY: Um… Doctor?    
DUCKY: Yes?    
JIMMY: Does it help you to talk to them?    
DUCKY: They’re still human.  Well what we do is very invasive and impersonal.  It helps me establish a relationship.

GIBBS: Is that a band?    
ABBY: No, spontaneous human combustion.    
GIBBS: Don’t waste my time, Abs.    
ABBY: If you ever read my Master’s thesis, you may become a believer.    
GIBBS: Doubt it.  

 
ABBY: I can show you photos of what was left of a two hundred and forty pound woman.    
GIBBS: Yeah, but you won’t.    
ABBY: She was sitting in a chair.  All that was left were blackened seat springs, a section of backbone, one foot still in a satin slipper, and ten pounds of ashes.  The rest of her apartment was untouched.    
GIBBS: Abby, you know what?  Just tell me what caused the explosion.    
ABBY: Ooh.  A bribe.  That always works.  So I checked out all the electrical equipment from the hospital trying to find the source of the ignition.  Nothing.  Everything’s in perfect working order, including this monitor which recorded the victim’s vitals up until the point of blast off.    
GIBBS: Huh.    
ABBY: Somebody went a little postal with the fire extinguisher.  It complicates finding trace evidence.    
GIBBS: The Commander was being barbecued.  I doubt they were concerned with forensics.    
ABBY: True.    
GIBBS: You don’t know what caused the explosion?    
ABBY: Other than S-H-C?    
GIBBS: All right. Get with Ducky.  Maybe together you can solve it.    
ABBY: Roger that.  When he’s finished slicing and dicing, we’ll go bang heads.

TONY: I was thinking of becoming a doctor.    
KATE: You?  A doctor?    
TONY: Anthony DiNozzo, comma, M.D.    
KATE: Let me guess.  A gynecologist?    
TONY: Ooh.  No, I was thinking more dermatologist.  Normal hours.  Big bucks.  Never an emergency.  I mean, nobody ever died from a zit.    
MCGEE: I had a terrible case of acne as a kid.    
TONY: Of course you did, Probie.    
MCGEE: Boss, plant engineer says that oxygen is supplied to the rooms through a central system.  They did a complete check and everything was in order.    
TONY: Day shift concurred with night shift.  The Commander was a pain in the ass.    
KATE: Divorced, ten years ago.  No kids.  Wife’s happily remarried living in Santa Fe.  Um… parents are retired.  One sister.  And they’re being notified by CACO.  DiNozzo! (SFX: CELL PHONE CHIMES B.G.)

DUCKY: Actually, I was quite the hoofer. (DUCKY DANCES/ HUMS)   
GIBBS: Let’s see it, Abs.    
ABBY: Based on the condition of the body, the burn patterns, and the debris scatter, we were able to recreate the explosion.    
TONY: Doesn’t tell us much.    
ABBY: Watch when I rotate it one eighty and play it in slo-mo.  That’s the point of ignition.    
     
     
     
     
KATE: What caused the explosion?    
ABBY: Well, this was taken from that area of the mattress.    
DUCKY: I also provided Abby with epidermal scrapings from the victim’s upper left torso.    
ABBY: And the spectrometer found minute traces of antimony sulfide and potassium chlorate on both.    
MCGEE: Matches.    
ABBY: Light my fire, McGee!    
GIBBS: Someone struck a match and ignited the oxygen.    
TONY: Well, according to the corpsman, the Commander was asleep.    
ABBY: This was no accident, Gibbs.  Barbeque Boy – he was murdered.

CASSIDY: Safety officers are generally disliked.  They have the authority to stick their nose in anyone’s department.  No one can say a word.    
TONY: That sounds like Gibbs.  So Commander Dornan made enemies.    
CASSIDY: He made an art of it.    
TONY: Definitely sounds like Gibbs.    
CASSIDY: So I’ve just been pulling files of all the people he put…

BYERS: So do I.  (BEAT)  Well, have you finished the autopsy?    
DUCKY: Yes.  Oh!  Yes, there was one question I wanted to ask you.  Why did you choose to perform a valve repair as opposed to a valve replacement?    
BYERS: It was a close call, but Commander Dornan was insistent.  If we replaced the valve, he wouldn’t be able to go back on active duty.    
DUCKY: Yes, true.      
BYERS: But the team felt that the valve was repairable and it was.  Ironic though, isn’t it?  We saved his life only to have him die in a freak accident.

MCGEE: Yeah.  My first pass at facial recognition will be against the data base of military personnel and government employees.    
CASSIDY: I can save you the trouble.  That’s Ensign Evan Hayes.  He’s in the engineering department on the Kennedy.  Commander Dornan rode his ass.    
GIBBS: More than other young officers?    
CASSIDY: Yeah.  He did not like him.  I’m not sure why, but it got so bad that Ensign Hayes verbally threatened him.    
GIBBS: DiNozzo, get me the Report of Investigation.    
CASSIDY: There isn’t one.  Commander Dornan asked that I not write one up, that he would handle it himself.    
GIBBS: NCIS Special Agents do not look the other way because they’re asked to, Agent Cassidy.    
CASSIDY: That wasn’t what happened.    
GIBBS: Yeah?  What happened then?    
CASSIDY: I felt sorry for the kid.  He didn’t deserve the abuse.  Some people can handle it and he couldn’t.  And I didn’t think it should show up on his record.     
GIBBS: Get Ensign Hayes in here, Agent Cassidy.  DiNozzo, you go with her to make sure.

BYERS: My father’s a retired Chief Petty Officer.    
DUCKY: You ever contemplate private practice?    
BYERS: Actually, my obligation to the Navy is up.  I’m leaving next month to accept an offer from Columbia Pres.    
DUCKY: New York.  Now that is exciting.

MCGEE: Thanks.  (INTO PHONE)  NCIS Special Agent McGee speaking.    
GIBBS: Thanks.    
MCGEE: (V.O.)  Really?  When did this happen?    
GIBBS: What?    
KATE: Why are you being so tough on Agent Cassidy?    
GIBBS: I haven’t done anything to her yet.    
KATE: You made her spend the day, alone, with DiNozzo.    
GIBBS: She survived.  They’re on their way back.    
MCGEE: Wait boss, one second.  (INTO PHONE)  Okay, got it.  Thank you, Ma'am. (TO GIBBS)  Ensign Hayes just made a charge on his credit card.  A hotel on Brannick Road….  

 
GIBBS: (OVERLAP)  Contact DiNozzo and Cassidy.  Have them meet us there.  You man the phones.  Kate, come on.  Let’s go.

GIBBS: Gibbs, NCIS.    
SPENCER: May I see that please?  (BEAT)  Okay.  What can I do for you, Agent Gibbs?    
GIBBS: You just checked in an Evan Hayes.  What room is he in?    
SPENCER: That would be illegal to release that information.    
KATE: We’re investigating a crime and we need to speak with him.    
SPENCER: Then I suggest you get a warrant.    
GIBBS: Hayes is in the United States Navy.  As you just saw, I’m a Special Agent in the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.  I don’t need a civilian warrant.    
SPENCER: You’re absolutely correct there, Sir.  You need the military equivalent, a D-D-Five-Five-Three.     
GIBBS: Are you a law student?    
SPENCER: Second year Georgetown.    
GIBBS: I’m going to give you a lesson tonight in practical law.  I’m going to ask for Hayes’ room key.  Politely.  And you’re going to hand it over.    
SPENCER: Key?  Hotels haven’t used keys in years.    
KATE: If he has to wake up a judge, nobody is going to be happy.    
SPENCER: Okay.  But announce yourself first.  That’s in compliance with the recent Supreme Court Decision.

TONY: Let’s see some I.D.    
TIFFANY: Just give it to them, Jonathan.    
TONY: Thank you, Jonathan.    
GIBBS: Where’d you get this?    
JONATHAN: A guy gave it to me.    
GIBBS: You’re going to have to do better than that, Jonathan.    
JONATHAN: Look, I swear, it’s the truth!  We were hanging out after swim practice and this strange guy just walked in.    
TIFFANY: Really spaced.    
JONATHAN: He…he just handed me the card and said that we should have a good time with it, that he didn’t need it anymore.  

 
TIFFANY: It’s true, Mister.  He was trying to get rid of us.      
JONATHAN: He said he wanted to use the pool.    
TONY: And you didn’t think that was a little weird?    
JONATHAN: Well, yeah, but I mean he said we could party with his credit card.    
GIBBS: Where’s the pool?    
JONATHAN: Alexandria Central High.      
GIBBS: Agent Cassidy, you and DiNozzo babysit these people until their parents get here.  And collect their car keys.    
JONATHAN: Ah, come on, man.    
TONY: Nobody likes a whiner, Jonathan.  Nice shirt.  (TO CASSIDY)  See?  I knew we’d end up in a hotel room tonight.

GIBBS: Special Agent Gibbs, NCIS!  Get down on your stomach.  Spread your arms and legs.  Quickly.    
HAYES: I’m done taking orders!    
GIBBS: Do it now, Ensign Hayes!  No, son.  You don’t want to do that.    
HAYES: Then put the weapon down!    
GIBBS: No, I can’t.  I’ve got to cover my partner, isn’t that right, Kate?    
KATE: Right.    
HAYES: A woman…. I would never hurt a woman.  

 
GIBBS: Okay.  I’m holstering my weapon, okay?  All right, your turn.    
HAYES: I’ve been trying to pull this trigger all night, but I can’t because I’m a coward.    
GIBBS: You’re not a coward.  You just don’t want to die.    
HAYES: I can’t spend the rest of my life taking his orders!    
GIBBS: Commander Dornan pushed a lot of people’s buttons, not just yours.    
HAYES: Commander Dornan?  He’s not my problem anymore.  This is the only place I ever felt safe.  It’s the only place I was ever happy.    
GIBBS: All right, let’s talk about it.    
HAYES: It’s too late to talk.    
GIBBS: Don’t do it.

MORGAN: That’s Evan.  He was troubled, but I had no idea he was suicidal!    
GIBBS: He was suspected of murder.    
MORGAN: Murder?!  Evan!  No way!    
KATE: We think he killed a superior officer at the Bethesda Naval Hospital Tuesday.    
MORGAN: Tuesday?  When?    
KATE: A little after zero three hundred.  

 
MORGAN: Three a.m.?  No, that’s impossible.  He was with me.  He called.  He woke me and my wife up.  He wasn’t making any sense.  I told him I’d come get him.  I picked him up in front of the hospital around two.    
KATE: You must have the wrong time.    
MORGAN: No, I’m certain.    
KATE: Well that’s not possible.    
GIBBS: Agent Todd, I’ll meet you up in the squad room.    
KATE: (OVERLAP)  No, Gibbs!  That would mean…!    
  (KATE WALKS O.S.)   
  (SFX: DOORS SLIDE OPEN)    
GIBBS: How long were you with him?    
MORGAN: We stayed up talking all night.    
GIBBS: About what?    
MORGAN: Mostly his father.  They had a lot of problems.    
GIBBS: Ensign Hayes tell you why he was at the hospital?    
MORGAN: He said he wanted to confront someone who was giving him a hard time, but he lost his nerve.

TONY: Ensign Hayes has an alibi?    
KATE: What’s going to happen?    
GIBBS: Nothing.  You did everything by the book.    
KATE: I killed an innocent man, Gibbs!    
GIBBS: It was suicide by cop, Kate.  Get over it.  We focused on the wrong guy.  

 
MCGEE: No one went in or out of Commander Dornan’s room between the time the corpsman checked up on him and the explosion.    
GIBBS: What about the corpsman?    
MCGEE: I checked his record against the Commander’s.  Their paths never crossed until the Commander came in for surgery.    
GIBBS: There were four others on the security video you couldn’t identify.    
MCGEE: Right.  I’ve cleared three of them.  One is still unknown… and I’m on it.    
GIBBS: Go back to the ship.  Go over your files again.    
CASSIDY: Agent Gibbs, I need to explain.    
GIBBS: There’s nothing to explain, Agent Cassidy.  You didn’t file a report, now two Naval officers are dead.  Would it have mattered?  We’ll never know.  DiNozzo!  Go down to the lab.  Go over all the physical evidence from the hospital room again.    
TONY: Uh… what am I looking for?  I’ll figure it out.

JIMMY: Yes, Sir.    
DUCKY: Oh dear.    
JIMMY: Oh, Abby wanted you to see this as soon as you got in.    
DUCKY: Mister Palmer!  I want Commander Dornan’s remains back on the table.  (INTO PHONE)  Kate, how are you?

TONY: I haven’t had a woman say that to me in a long time.  Sorry.    
ABBY: You break anything, you’re dead meat.    
TONY: What are you working on?    
ABBY: Evidence analysis report, DiNozzo.    
TONY: I think you misspelled tetrafluoroethylene.  I’m a great speller.    
ABBY: Don’t you have somewhere else to be?    
TONY: Gibbs told me to go through the physical evidence.    
ABBY: Oh, he expects you to find something that I didn’t?    
TONY: Just another set of eyes, Abs.  

 
ABBY: I really need to finish this.    
TONY: Sorry.  Dornan’s personal effects?    
ABBY: Yeah.    
TONY: Ooh.  Well he didn’t only have heart problems.  This guy was blind!  Did you find any trace of cigarette ash?    
ABBY: In an oxygen fire?  I don’t think so.  Wait!  I did find something that might be a cigarette filter.    
TONY: Abby, I think I know how the oxygen was ignited.

GIBBS: Abby, what do you got for me?    
ABBY: Not me.  Cecile B. DiNozzo.    
TONY: Stalag Seventeen.  G.I. uses a cigarette as a time fuse to blow up a Nazi train.  Come on, guys.  Don’t try this at home, McGee.  It’s for grownups.    

GIBBS: 
DiNozzo (SFX: TONY SMOKES/ COUGHS)   
TONY: How do people do this?  Okay, the cigarette becomes a time fuse.  Check this.    
  (SFX: MATCHES LIGHT)   
TONY: Uh-huh.  In real time it takes about twelve minutes for it to reach the matches.    
ABBY: It’s cool, huh?  The killer placed it next to Dornan’s side under the tented sheet, next to the open oxygen line.    
TONY: Then he left the room.    
GIBBS: Who was there twelve minutes before the fire?    
MCGEE: Doctor Byers.    
KATE: She was the one who murdered him?!    
DUCKY: He wasn’t murdered.  Commander Dornan died as a result of his surgery.  Doctor Byers made it look as if he was murdered.    
KATE: Well who was she trying to frame?    
DUCKY: No one.  She was covering her mistake.  In nineteen ninety-five, she was the subject of a malpractice investigation on a heart valve repair almost identical to the one she performed on the Commander.    
ABBY: So how do you know that he was dead before the fire started?    
DUCKY: I compared Dornan’s preview E-K-G to the last I-VAC recording.  That heartbeat wasn’t his.      
GIBBS: She still could have murdered him.    
DUCKY: Well, not intentionally.      
GIBBS: Doctor…

PATIENT: Thanks you, Doctor Byers.    
BYERS: Ducky!  What a pleasant surprise.  Special Agent Gibbs.    
DUCKY: Janice, there was no Percocet in Commander Dornan’s stomach.    
BYERS: I’m glad it’s over.    
     
  CUT TO:     
     
 INT. WAITING ROOM – DAY     
     
BYERS: Dornan was in pain and demanded to see me.  I rushed to the hospital, did an echocardiogram and realized not replacing the valve was a mistake.  It was failing.    
DUCKY: Why didn’t you operate immediately?    
BYERS: When I told him he became hysterical.  He went into cardiac arrest.  I tried to resuscitate him, but couldn’t.  A second failed valve repair would end my career, and the job at Columbia Pres.  I panicked.  I tried to cover up.      
     
  CUT TO:     
     
 INT. HOSPITAL ROOM – FLASHBACK     
     
BYERS: (V.O.)  I placed the EKG sensors on my own chest.  I turned off the audible alarm, cleared the record data, and reset the time/date stamp ahead fifteen minutes.  I disconnected the oxygen tube from his nasal canula and inserted it into his incision so the oxygen could accumulate in his chest cavity.  Then using one of his own cigarettes and a match book… I placed it on the bed.    
     
  CUT TO:     
     
 INT. WAITING ROOM – DAY     
     
BYERS: On my way out I stopped by the nurses’ station and told them that I had sedated him and he was resting, and to check on him in a half hour.    
DUCKY: Janice, you didn’t kill him.      
BYERS: But I did… by not replacing the valve in the first place.

CASSIDY: (V.O./FILTERED)  This is Paula.  Leave a message.    
TONY: (INTO PHONE)  Hey.  It’s me.  Come on, just ‘cause you’re pissed at Gibbs is no reason not to return my calls.  Right?  So dial the number ‘cause you’ve got it.  Okay.    
  (HANGS UP PHONE)   
MCGEE: Sometimes you’ve just got to know when to let go, Tony.    
TONY: You don’t really expect me to take advice about women from you, do you?    
MCGEE: I could stay here and argue the point, but I have a date.    
GIBBS: So?  Now what?    
DUCKY: I don’t know.    
GIBBS: You can’t let any woman affect you like this, Duck.  Especially one you didn’t know that well.    
DUCKY: My concerns are more immediate.  I have two tickets to the opera tonight.  She was going to accompany me.  Jethro?    
GIBBS: No.    
DUCKY: I wonder if Kate would be interested.  Do you know where she is?    
TONY: No.
