 EXT. HOUSE – DAY     
     
JODY: It’s a great neighborhood.  Very quiet, very private.  It has an oversized backyard.  That’s a big plus.  The whole house has been newly renovated.  There are upgrades all over the place.  Stainless appliances, air-purification system.  Total move-in condition.  The furniture is rented, but if you like it, I can have the company make you a deal.

JODY: Amy, you are going to love the kitchen, but first I’m going to show you guys the living room.  It has a wall-mounted flat screen and a gas log fireplace.  You won’t believe how easy this is.  One push of a button.  Isn’t that cozy?

DUCKY: Make sure you capture the back of his head, too, if you would be so kind.    
MCGEE: You got it.    
JIMMY: Sorry!    
MCGEE: (OVERLAP)  Sorry!    
DUCKY: There’s no rush, gentlemen.  Our patient isn’t going anywhere.    
MCGEE: Well, Ducky, the old Gibbs is back.    
DUCKY: The old Gibbs?    
GIBBS: McGee!  Over here.  Hands and knees.  On the floor.    
MCGEE: Okay.  Um… you’re not going to step on me, are you?  Footprints!  Footprints.  Looking for footprints.  It’s a pretty tight weave.    
DUCKY: It looks like sisal.  It’s a naturally stiff fiber, woven from the leaf of the cactus plant.  It doesn’t mat, trap dust or build static.  Makes it ideal for carpeting, but personally, I prefer a good shag.  From a criminal-investigative standpoint.    
MCGEE: I don’t see any dirty footprints.    
DUCKY: I think it’s safe to assume that our friend didn’t stroll in here on his own.    
TONY: You look happy to see me, Boss!  (BEAT)  Oh, it’s the coffee.  Ran the military ID our local LEOs got off the body.  Lance Corporal James Finn stationed at Quantico.  Went UA when his unit was shipped to Iraq six months ago.    
MCGEE: Looks like he’s got a pretty good reason for not showing.     
GIBBS: Find out where he was buried.    
DUCKY: It won’t be far, McGee.  Had the trip been longer, some bits would have fallen off.    
MCGEE: Okay, I’ll check the backyard.    
TONY: Scene’s not going to sketch itself.      
  (F/X: JIMMY BUMPS INTO TONY)   
  (SFX: JIMMY GROANS)   
DUCKY: Perhaps it would be better if you fetched the gurney, Mister Palmer.  I’ve seen all I need to see here.    
JIMMY: Yes, Doctor.    
     
  (PASSAGE OF TIME)   
     
TONY: It’s a tidy crime scene.    
DUCKY: Quite.  It appears to be a body drop.  A tertiary crime scene.  Or quaternary.  Or quinary.  I could go on.    
TONY: Oh, you did.  It’s an odd decorating choice.  Although the corpse does give the place a certain lived-in look.    
DUCKY: You can see, he brushed the dirt off his face.      
TONY: Oh, geez!!    
  (F/X: TONY BUMPS INTO GIBBS)   
TONY: Sorry.    
     
DUCKY: Hello.  (CHUCKLES)  Nicrophorus americanus.  Also known as the carrion beetle.  Come here, you little monkey!  Ah ah!  Yeah, a reminder that Shakespeare got it wrong.  We are not food for worms.  It’s the flies and beetles that feast upon us.    
GIBBS: I’m more interested in why someone did this, Doctor.    
DUCKY: Well, then I’ll have to research the predatory, manipulative, grandiose nature of this behavior.  But my first impression is that we’re dealing with a complete loon.    
TONY: That Master’s in psych is starting to pay off, Ducky.

JODY: Merciful God in Heaven!  I have seen a lot of things selling real estate, but can you imagine walking in and seeing that?    
ZIVA: When was the last time you were here?    
JODY: Yesterday morning for a showing.    
ZIVA: And everything was normal?    
JODY: There was no rotting corpse in the living room if that’s what you mean.    
ZIVA: Who else had access?    
JODY: A couple of dozen real estate women.  The keys are in a lock box on the front door.    
ZIVA: Who’s the owner?    
JODY: A local contractor… and me.  I buy and Bob fixes.  We split the profits.    
ZIVA: Bob?    
JODY: Robert Whitehead.  The contractor.    
ZIVA: A number where he can be reached?      
JODY: Yeah.    
ZIVA: So who put the body here?  You or Bob?    
JODY: Neither of us!  You know, it is an empty house.  If you’re looking to ditch a body, that’s a real plus.    
RICK: Jody!  I came as fast as I could.  Are you okay?    
JODY: It’s my husband.  I called him.  (TO RICK)  Just duck under the tape, Rick.    
ZIVA: Stop!  It’s a crime scene!    
RICK: Crime scene.  Honey, you all right?    
ZIVA: She’s fine.    
JODY: I am not fine.  I had to cancel my one o’clock showing!    
MCGEE: (V.O.)  I think I found where he was buried…

 EXT. BACK YARD – DAY     
     
MCGEE: I checked for footprints, but it rained last night.  So everything is pretty washed out.    
GIBBS: You got access?    
MCGEE: Well, there’s side access at street level.  Chain link fence around the yard, but anyone with gloves could have scaled it.    
ZIVA: Wait for me!    
TONY: Did the real estate agent solve the big mystery?    
ZIVA: No.  But she owns the property with a contractor, and every real estate agent in town had access.     
TONY: I think the mystery is how they expect to sell a house for six hundred grand when it only has two and a half bathrooms.


    
MCGEE: Well, you know what they say.  Location, location…. location.  So, judging from the marks around the edges, I’d say the digger used a garden spade.  The soil is not real packed, so it would have been easy digging for a male or female.    
GIBBS: You see that?    
MCGEE: Black plastic bags.    
TONY: Garbage bags.    
GIBBS: Body bag.  Get it back to Abby.  Have a soil sample.  I want ground-penetrating radar.    
MCGEE: Uh, Boss, those techs are booked weeks in advance.  I’m going to tell them it’s an emergency, and I will not budge until they show.    
GIBBS: Who’s staying with McGee?    
ZIVA: I can, if you want Tony to check out the other real estate women.    
TONY: Fine with me.    
GIBBS: Tony!  Stay with McGee.    
ZIVA: You shouldn’t have licked your chops like a hungry wolf.

TONY: Much better.  Before I smelled like dirt and sweat. Now I smell like dirt, sweat, and sandalwood.    
ZIVA: Good morning!  What are you doing at my desk?!    
TONY: I couldn’t find my deodorant, so I used yours.    
ZIVA: You, you didn’t.    
TONY: Yeah, we’re partners.  What’s the big deal?    
ZIVA: A hair!    
TONY: Come on.  You attach electrodes to men’s testicles.  You’re getting squeamish about a hair?  I’m not going to feel bad.  Those ground-radar techs didn’t show ‘till dawn.  McGee and I watched the sunrise together.  It was very “Brokeback Mountain.”    
MCGEE: He had me at “Howdy.”    
ZIVA: How romantic.  I’m sorry I missed it.    
MCGEE: Well, I can show it to you on my new phone.  It takes video.  Behold the majesty of the sun.    
ZIVA: On a two inch screen?  Are we all getting those?    
MCGEE: Nope.  I bought it.    
ZIVA: Expensive?    
MCGEE: Not really.    
TONY: Ha!  Yeah, really.  You’ve been dropping a lot of cash lately, McGee.  New phone, new watch, new teeth.  What’s up?    
GIBBS: Ducky matched the dental records.  The body downstairs is Lance Corporal Finn.  Ziva, when did you – McGee!  How long does it take to put on a clean shirt?    
MCGEE: Ten seconds.  With buttons a little longer.  (BEAT)  Rhetorical question.    
ZIVA: Contractor’s off the hook.  He’s been out of town for a week.  Going to check on the real estate agents this morning.    
TONY: That’s all you did?    
ZIVA: No, while you and McGee were watching the sunrise, I was pulling Lance Corporal Finn’s SRB, and I have to say it was…. spotty.  He was UNC on the range and failed his swim qual.    
GIBBS: So they made him a supply clerk.    
ZIVA: Right.  Six months ago he signed out on a three day pass before deploying to Iraq, and he never returned home.    
GIBBS: Get me his C.O.    
TONY: He’s in Iraq.  (BEAT)  I’ll contact MTAC.    
MCGEE: I’ve put in a request for Finn’s bank records, earning statements, and medical records.    
TONY: Night wasn’t a total loss.  Ground radar picked up a shovel about ten feet from the gravesite.  Already sent it to Abby. 

(GIBBS WALKS O.S.)   
MCGEE: Yep.  The old Gibbs is back.

GIBBS: Do you see something, Abs?    
ABBY: Beauty.  I mean it’s tragic, but if you were to see this tableau in a museum, you’d swear it was a brilliant commentary on the human condition.    
GIBBS: What?  A corpse staring at the TV set?    
ABBY: It says it all.    
GIBBS: Well, it doesn’t say who put him there, or why?    
ABBY: That’s for us to find out.  (GASPS)  You shaved your mustache!  I liked you with a little hair on your face.    
GIBBS: I’ve still got my eyebrows.    
ABBY: Good point.  I found Finn’s blood, hair, and fingerprints on the plastic.  So he was probably wrapped in it.  But I didn’t find any other prints on the plastic or the shovel.    
GIBBS: Any chance of grabbing the gravedigger’s sweat off the handle?    
ABBY: After being underground, it’s unlikely.  Strange case, huh?  I had this friend once that used to display road kill in his living room.  He got an NEA grant --    
GIBBS: Abby?    
ABBY: Next I analyzed the soil.  It’s compost material, rocks, and small sticks.  Nothing’s over an inch long.  That indicates it was processed through a screen.    
GIBBS: Pretty clean for dirt.    
ABBY: Well, it’s a commercial product.   But the house was just re-landscaped, so it’s not surprising.  I sent the acidity levels to Ducky.  I then inventoried Finn’s personal items.     
GIBBS: Got anything with a date on it?    
ABBY: Nope, sorry.  No credit card or purchase receipts.  I guess he was a cash guy.  I mean, if you can call a guy with thirty-one dollars and seventy-one cents a cash guy.  His clothes were Dockers from Sears.  No judgments.  The shirts are large, the shoes are off-brand.  And his underwear are boxer/briefs, like you wear, Gibbs.    
GIBBS: You’re fishing, Abs.    
ABBY: So, are they regular boxers?  Trunks?  Bikinis?  Nothing? (GIBBS WALKS O.S.)

JIMMY: Yes, Doctor.    
DUCKY: Well, let’s plug the numbers into the computer and see how long our friend has been leaking into the topsoil.  Agent Gibbs will be here soon, and he will ask…    
  (SFX: DOORS SLIDE OPEN)    
GIBBS: How’d the Lance Corporal die, Doctor?    
DUCKY: How he died may take me a while.  Try when did he die?    
GIBBS: That’s my next question.    
DUCKY: That I can answer.  It’s a tricky calculation.  One has to factor in temperature, soil acidity, and the variety and volume of insects who now call Lance Corporal Finn home.    
GIBBS: Give me a round number.    
JIMMY: Ninety-two days with a three percent margin of error.    
DUCKY: It would appear you deserted before you died.

REBECCA: At a bar two years ago.  I was there with some girlfriends, and when I got up to go to the lady’s room, he blocked my path.  Said he couldn’t keep his eyes off of me.    
MCGEE: And that worked?    
REBECCA: What worked is that when we talked, he had something to say.  Most guys won’t shut up about their online war games.  But this guy, he had seen real action.  And I was feeling patriotic that night.  So I invited him to come home with me.  The sex was fantastic.

STENGEL: (ON MONITOR) Finn wasn’t one of my stronger Marines.  Wasn’t surprised he went U.A.    
GIBBS: Did he have any enemies in the company?    
STENGEL: (ON MONITOR) He was well-liked.  Played poker.  Not well, but covered his debts.  Liked to talk about his sexual exploits in detail.  You know how Marines love that.    
GIBBS: How does a dead Marine stateside send letters home from Iraq?    
STENGEL: (ON MONITOR) I wondered about that myself.  Get over here, Marine!  Meet Lance Corporal Hagan… soon to be Private Hagan.  Before deployment, Finn gave him… a couple hundred bucks to pop letters in the mail to two women.  First batch started six months ago.  The second three months later.  Got enough to last the rest of our deployment.

DUCKY: Well, you just flashed a slight reflective smile when I said that Gibbs didn’t believe your wife.    
RICK: I did not!    
DUCKY: Timothy?    
  (MUSIC OVER ACTION/MCGEE REVIEWS CAMERA FOOTAGE)   
DUCKY: (V.O./RECORDED)  I’m afraid he doesn’t believe me.  (ON CAMERA) I don’t know if God was watching your wife and Finn that night, but you were.    
RICK: My wife and the dead guy?    
DUCKY: Yes.  When your wife ran out of the house, you buried the body.    
RICK: My god, man.  Why would I do that?    
DUCKY: Because you wanted the money.  Well, you had to wait until her father died, before you could implicate her in the murder.  But once she got her inheritance, you disinterred the body.    
RICK: You have a vivid imagination, Ducky.  But uh… imagination doesn’t prove anything.    
DUCKY: Yeah, you’re quite right there.  But evidence does.  Ah, good.   Abby, have you lifted the DNA from the shovel handle yet?  You know, from the sweat we discovered on the handle? 

 

   
ABBY: Oh, yeah!  Right.  I’ve got it running.  I’m ready to check it.  I just need a sample.    
DUCKY: Well then, test it against the saliva on this.    
RICK: You’re right!  I tried to cover up her murder, but I didn’t kill him!  That cheating bitch did!    
MCGEE: Boss, Mister Carvell here admitted to Ducky he buried the body.    
JODY: Oh, my God!  It was you?!    
RICK: Who else cleans up your messes?  I was watching the two of you from the window.    
JODY: You watched us make love?    
RICK: That’s not what I’d call it.    
GIBBS: Then what happened?    
RICK: They had a fight.  She hit him on the head, and she ran.    
JODY: Rick.  He’s lying!    
RICK: All I did was bury him.    
DUCKY: Oh, I’m afraid you did a bit more than that.    
RICK: Right.  I unburied him.    
MCGEE: Sit down.    
DUCKY: A reexamination of the conjunctival and facial tissues reveal petechial hemorrhages suggesting asphyxia.  So I looked for atelextasis in his lungs, which results from shallow breathing due to an obstruction, such as plastic.  And there it was.  Lance Corporal Finn was buried alive.     
RICK: He was dead!  I know he was dead!    
JODY: You bastard!  You killed him!    
GIBBS: Ziva, get her out of here.  McGee, handcuff him and get a sworn statement!    
JODY: (SHOUTS)  I hope you fry!    
RICK: (SHOUTS)  Go to hell!  Go to hell.    
ABBY: Wow.  I’ve got to come up here more often.    
     
  CUT TO:    
     
 INT. ELEVATOR – DAY     
     
  (ELEVATOR DINGS/ DOORS OPEN)    
  (ZIVA BUMPS INTO GIBBS/MOANS)   
ZIVA: Gibbs!  I screwed up.    
GIBBS: Well, yeah.  You almost spilled my coffee.    
ZIVA: When Tony and I ran out to pick up Jody, I left Finn’s bag of gold by my desk…    
GIBBS: Hm-hmm.    
ZIVA: I know I should have taken it to evidence, but we were focusing on--    
GIBBS: Here’s the inventory.    
ZIVA: You took it to evidence!  It says here the bag contained eighteen thousand dollars worth of gold.  We are sixty thousand dollars short.  (BEAT)  You gave Siri and Rebecca back the money they loaned Finn. (ELEVATOR DINGS/ DOORS CLOSE)    
  (ELEVATOR DINGS/ DOORS OPEN/ CLOSE)
(GIBBS AND ZIVA WALK INTO THE SQUAD ROOM)    
GIBBS: I thought I’d save the courts some paperwork.    
ZIVA: You wouldn’t be getting soft? Of course, not.  You shaved your mustache.    
     
     
MCGEE: Boss, reception called this morning.  They said that someone is here with information about – sorry – about a case.  I went to meet her and um… this is Jessica Coleman.  James Finn’s fiancé.
