Synopsis: Une jeune femme, Erin Kendall, est témoin d'un meurtre dans l'immeuble en face de son logement. Le temps qu'elle allume sa caméra pour garder une trace du crime, agresseur et victime disparaissent. Elle peut seulement affirmer avoir aperçu un uniforme de marin. McGee est chargé par Gibbs de tirer les choses au clair. En l'absence de cadavre ou d'éléments prouvant l'agression, Gibbs pense à classer l'affaire. Mais Tim, déterminé à montrer de quoi il est capable, en fait une affaire personnelle. Finalement, les empreintes d'un marine, une arme et un coffret vide sont découverts par les enquêteurs.

GIBBS: Get the sedan, McGee.    
MCGEE: Where are we going, boss?  

 
GIBBS: Not we.  You.  Apartment building in Georgetown.  A woman reported seeing a sailor being strangled.

GIBBS: Metro police don’t think it’s anything, but the woman’s insistent.    
MCGEE: What do you want me to do?    
GIBBS: Investigate, McGee.  It’s what we do.  If there’s anything, call in.    
MCGEE: Right.    
TONY: Our little boy’s growing up.

MCGEE: You checked it out?    
FLOYD: Yeah, the apartment manager let us in.  No sign of struggle and nobody was even there.  No forcible entry.  The neighbors didn’t see or hear anything.    
MCGEE: So why did you call us?    
FLOYD: She wouldn’t let it go.  I think she was up a little bit too late.  Had a little too much to drink, you know?  Look, I’ve got some other real cases to investigate.  Her name is Erin Kendall.  Apartment Two-B.  Make sure you ask her to show you the video.  (CHUCKLES)

TONY: We’ve all seen the credentials.    
GIBBS: That’s it?    
MCGEE: No.  No, to get a closer look at the assault, Erin used a camcorder with a two hundred to one zoom lens.    
GIBBS: Let’s see the video.    
MCGEE: Well, she didn’t actually start recording until after the men had moved away from the window.  But it does show that the lights were on.  When Metro Police got here, they were off.    
TONY: That would do it for me.    
MCGEE: Boss?  The truth?    
GIBBS: That would be good.

ABBY: Okay.  I need an assistant.    
GIBBS: It’s not in the budget.    
KATE: The name Robert J. Thorne has to be an alias.  Nothing on his apartment rental application checks out.  His driver’s license, social, references are all phony.  He lists his occupation as a sales representative, but the company doesn’t exist.    
GIBBS: The owners of the building didn’t verify anything?    
KATE: He paid the first month, last month and every payment since in cash.  Apparently, dead presidents are the only reference they needed.    
MCGEE: Ran the serial number on Thorne’s Sig by the manufacturer.  It was sold fifteen months ago to a Virginia dealer.  He works gun shows.  Trying to track him down.    
GIBBS: What’d you find?    
TONY: Couldn’t tell when Petty Officer Dillon was last in his apartment.  Bed wasn’t made, but from the looks of the place, it never is.

MCGEE: So Tony was right.  He was dealing drugs.    
ABBY: Maybe not.  The traces were microscopic.  So it could just be from hiding money.  (TO GIBBS)  He calls himself a federal agent.    
GIBBS: The U.S. money supply is contaminated with traces of cocaine.

KATE: Give me a bill.    

GIBBS: A hundred?

MCGEE: Yeah, I like to be prepared for any emergency.

ABBY: You’re such a Boy Scout.  Money is a great receptor because the ink never really dries.  One bill used to snort cocaine and then going through an ATM leaves minute traces of the drugs on thousands of others.

(CONT.)  Four out of five bills in circulation are contaminated to the level that can be detected by drug dogs.

MCGEE: Oh, I’m getting it now, Boss.    
FLOYD: Keep me posted.    
GIBBS: Duck?    
DUCKY: Oh, based on the lividity and blood pooling, the body was most definitely moved.  The ligature marks indicate strangulation as the cause of death.  These parallel lines suggest electrical cord.  Time of death… twelve to fourteen hours ago.    
GIBBS: That would confirm the witness’ story.    
DUCKY: Yeah.  Bag his head and hands, Mister Palmer.    
TONY: Hey, do you want to help me with the grid?

MCGEE: Here you go, Boss.    
GIBBS: What’s next?    
MCGEE: What?    
GIBBS: How do we proceed, McGee?    

MCGEE: Right.  Well, uh… we’ve got to figure out who Thorne is and find a connection between him and Petty Officer Dillon.  Probably the money. 

(CONT.) And I think it would be a smart move to keep an eye on Thorne’s apartment.  If he doesn’t know we’re on to him, then he’ll be back.    
GIBBS: What else?    
MCGEE: I think Erin and the building manager should work on a composite sketch.  Am I forgetting anything?

 INT. AUTOPSY ROOM – DAY     
     
DUCKY: Bring me an evidence file please, Mister Palmer.  This fiber appears synthetic, most likely the Petty Officer didn’t pick it up from the portable loo.  Their making your death appear a robbery was a very amateurish attempt at a red herring.    
JIMMY: I’ve always found that a very curios expression.    
DUCKY: Yes, it is, isn’t it?  You know the derivation?  Fox and hounds.    
JIMMY: How’s that Doctor Mallard?    

DUCKY: Well, the only practical way to cure a herring is by smoking and salting.  Yes, it turns the fish a crimson red and gives it a very distinctive smell.  In the early Fifteenth Century, they used to train their hounds to hunt foxes by dragging a red herring along the ground on a piece of string to leave a trail of scent for the dogs to follow.  Then later on, they would drag a red herring across the scent trail of a real fox to test the dog’s ability to ignore a false sent or false clue. 


(CONT.)  Hence the term red herring became to mean a false clue designed to fool one’s opponent.    
JIMMY: It’s fascinating.      
DUCKY: Yeah. (WRITES) Thank you.  Do you know the etymology of the phrase, white elephant?    
JIMMY: You know, I should really get this up to Abby.

MCGEE: I did.  It’s a waste of time.  It could have been anybody.    
ERIN: Let me try something.    
  (SFX: KEYBOARDING)   
ABBY: What are you doing?    
MCGEE: Erin is incredible!  She has rewritten software code for the M.A.U program to incorporate hyper-threading.  
ABBY: I thought you were working on the composite.    
MCGEE: It’s not gonna happen.  Erin, any idea on how to over-clock the processors?    
ERIN: Yeah, um… you’ve got two options.  Changing either the FSB or the multiplier locks.    
JIMMY: Oh, a gift from Doctor Mallard.    
  (SFX: GIGGLING B.G.)   
ERIN: There it is!

KATE: Jill Meyers.  NCIS.  Special Agent Todd and DiNozzo.      
TONY: We’d like to talk to you about a Petty Officer Keith Dillon.  When’s the last time you saw him?    
JILL MEYERS: A couple of days ago.  So how did you find out that I know Keith?  Did he… he tell you?    
KATE: Petty Officer Dillon has been murdered.    
JILL MEYERS: What?  What happened?    
KATE: Well, that’s what we’re trying to find out.    
TONY: How long have you and Petty Officer Dillon been… seeing each other?    
JILL MEYERS: Keith came in a couple months ago.  So he’s dead?    
TONY: Yeah.    
KATE: You’re married.    
JILL MEYERS: Uh… yeah.    
TONY: Does your husband know about Keith?  
JILL MEYERS: Uh uh.  He’s a… he’s in Iraq.  Been there eight months.       
KATE: Anyway he could have found out?  Were things were getting serious with Keith?    
JILL MEYERS: I was going to send my husband an email… breaking up.  Good thing I didn’t.  Keith wanted me to quit my job and move in with him.    
TONY: He was going to support you?    
JILL MEYERS: Yeah.  He was coming into a lot of money.  I guess I’m stuck here now.    
TONY: Did Keith ever talk about a guy named Robert Thorne?     
JILL MEYERS: Keith didn’t talk about anything.  Our relationship was more… physical than anything else.  I do know he was pissed he didn’t make it as a Navy SEAL.    
KATE: Anything else?    
JILL MEYERS: My husband doesn’t need to find out about Keith, right?    
  (KATE AND TONY WALK O.S.)   
KATE: Dear John email?  What a calculating witch.  She gives all women a bad name.    
TONY: I’m never getting married. There’s no upside to it.    
KATE: That’s not true.  Statistically, married men live longer.    
TONY: They don’t’ actually live longer, it just seems longer.    
KATE: You’re just cynical.    
TONY: Am I?  Marriage was never intended to last more than a few years.    
KATE: Where did you get that?  

TONY: Anthropology one-oh-one.  The concept was invented by cavemen with a life expectancy of twenty five years.  ‘Till death do us part meant four or five years tops.    
KATE: That was very enlightening, DiNozzo.  And I do understand now.  You think like a Neanderthal.

ABBY: Don’t mess with my music!    
GIBBS: How do you work with that?    
ABBY: It helps me to concentrate.    
GIBBS: On what?    
ABBY: Fibers that Ducky found on Dillon.  Definitely one from the trunk lining of a car.  I’m going to run them through the FBI’s M.A.U. database and try to narrow it down to make, model and year.  What’s this?    
GIBBS: Thorne’s original Virginia gun purchase application for his SIG.  See if you can lift a print off it.

GIBBS: Did you find the girlfriend?    
KATE: She’s a piece of work, but we did find--     
TONY: It’s all about the money, Boss.  Petty Officer Dillon told his girlfriend he was gonna be rich.  A career E-six?  It wasn’t coming from the Navy.    
KATE: We figure Thorne killed him for the money.    
GIBBS: You think?    
TONY: What are you thinkin’?    
GIBBS: Where’s the money?

TONY: (INTO PHONE)  Bowers.  (SPELLS)  B.O.W.E.R.S.  Can you fax me a copy of the files?  Great.  Thanks, Lieutenant.  (TO MCGEE)  Some advice?  You can sit there and second guess what you should or shouldn’t have done and never get the answer.  Or you can get back on the job and catch the bastard.  The Sig in Thorne's sofa bed was used to murder a Carole Anne VanBuren in suburban Raleigh and a Thomas Roy Bowers in Baltimore.    
GIBBS: Any tie between them?    
TONY: Just the Sig.  VanBuren was involved in a messy divorce.  Husband’s a lot richer with her dead.  Bowers was a tough union steward leading a long strike.    
GIBBS: Both hits.    
TONY: Sounds like it.    
GIBBS: Have the local LEOs in Raleigh and Baltimore…    
TONY: Fax the files.  Already did, Boss.    
GIBBS: How’s the root canal?    
KATE: Nothing to it.    
TONY: Thanks to…?    
KATE: You, Tony.  I have to give you credit.  The hypnotist really worked.   

TONY: Thank you.    
KATE: You know, Gibbs, this hypnotist consults with police departments on cases of repressed memory.  She might be able to help McGee recall details.    
GIBBS: Yeah?  Why don’t we just use a Ouija board?    
KATE: Hypnotism isn’t a parlor game, Gibbs.    
GIBBS: You could fool me.

FOX: He’s ready.  Now traumatic memories are permanent.  The biggest barrier to recalling them is stress.    
KATE: Well, McGee was certainly under a lot of stress last night.     
TONY: Probie’s always under stress, Kate.    
FOX: Well, with hypnosis we bypass the stress, go into the subconscious where the memories are.  Now being here where the incident occurred will help.    
GIBBS: So does a good whack to the head.    
FOX: May I continue, Agent Gibbs?  (TO MCGEE)  Agent McGee, when I touch your forehead, you will open your eyes and remain fully relaxed.  It will be last night when you were talking to Erin on your cell phone.  You will see and hear everything clearly.    
MCGEE: What is it?    
FOX: What’s happening?  

MCGEE: She’s heard a sound.  She’s scared.    
FOX: What is she saying?    
MCGEE: She’s talking low.  Sounds frightened.    
FOX: Her exact words.    
MCGEE: Someone’s trying to break into my apartment.    
FOX: What did you do?    
MCGEE: I went to the window.

GIBBS: (V.O./FILTERED)  You ran it through AFIS?    
ABBY: (INTO PHONE)  I didn’t have to.    
GIBBS: (V.O./FILTERED)  Why not?    
ABBY: (INTO PHONE)  Because I already know everything that you need to know about him.

GIBBS: (INTO PHONE)  Good work, Abs.  (TO FOX)  Can you give us a minute, please? (END TELEPHONE INTERCUTS)   
FOX: Sure, no problem.    
GIBBS: Abby found Thorne.      
KATE: Where?  
 
GIBBS: In Ducky’s cold storage vault.    
TONY: He’s dead?    
KATE: I don’t… I don’t understand.    
GIBBS: Abby matched the print taken from Dillon’s corpse to one taken from Thorne's gun application.  Petty Officer Dillon and Thorne are the same guy.     
TONY: Dillon was the hit man?    
GIBBS: He probably used the name Thorne when he was hired to kill those two people.     
KATE: A macho, washed-out SEAL, trying to prove his worth.    
GIBBS: Creates a fictitious persona, Thorne, to freelance as a killer.     
MCGEE: If there’s no Thorne, who murdered Erin and Dillon?

JEREMY: I’m the manager.  I’ve got keys to all the apartments.

KATE: Ah.  Did you have to redo your first report for Gibbs?    
TONY: A few.    
KATE: What’s a few?    
GIBBS: Five.  It would have been more but I took pity on him.    
KATE: Ooh!
