I'd be willing to bet whoever wrote that line would be thrilled we are quoting it seasons and seasons later :rofl:

Anyone remember the actual doppelgänger team - I think from Metro? - with the coffee swilling boss and the flirty Italian and the sassy girl and nervous geek? I love when Gibbs and his doppelgänger scare the crap out of their suspect n interrogation :evillaugh:

I'm glad someone else remembers and loves it!

I really liked how it was just kind of a B story, it was a pretty good counterpoint to the multiple murder/Gibbs getting involved with the wrong woman again A story, without detracting from it. I think Gibbs and the detective playing bad cop, scary cop with the suspect is maybe my favourite part, but it was just a fairly worn old trope being used in a really very deft way, I thought. I think my other favourite moment is Kate (I think) commenting to Gibbs (I'm pretty sure) "that was weird" and getting a totally blank reaction because evidently Gibbs just finds the detective guy pretty normal or whatever and hasn't twigged the significance of three mean ex wives, etc. That always makes me laugh, I love Kate having foot in mouth disease :evillaugh:

A Doppelgänger is a German word for someone or something that is a person's twin in appearance. It often has sinister or paranormal connotations. It's not a biological twin, but someone who looks so much like a person as to be mistaken for them. In fiction, often it signifies bad things such as someone doing something bad and getting you into trouble or someone taking your place (a la Mad Eye Moody in Harry Potter).

I'm super irritated because my DVR is acting up & therefore I'm not able to record this ep & I'm sure I would have liked to watch this one again (and my On Demand has been acting up lately, too, so that's not really an option, GRR). But I am LIKING this. Not this latest twist with the dude showing up at Vance's house. Oh HELL no.

OMG. Gibbs & Vance trailing that taxi was everything. "I've got moves." "You're just jealous your sorry ass phone can't do this." :lol2: (I might be paraphrasing a bit, but omg. SO PLAYFUL.)

Am I the only one watching this excellent episode??? There was a Tabby scene and then a McNozzo interrogation (with role play, says my friend Sandy, and I said, oh my, a la George Takei). This episode has like all my favorite things. :smitten:

Interesting ep. I liked that Vance was more involved, but I was afraid they were gonna dump Vance and screw with my team. Not sure if I like how Vance was portrayed... they made him look a bit clueless and that's not my idea of Vance.

I wasn't the biggest fan of SecNav in this episode, but I suppose she was just doing her job. Still.

I didn't see Vance being portrayed as clueless as much as distracted by the case. Like he was so involved that he wasn't thinking like an agent because he was too emotional. I think that's why Gibbs made that comment at the end about, "It happens, Leon." He figured Vance would probably miss something, but he's been there before himself, so he was giving him a pass. And then it made Vance realize that where he belongs is in the director's office, not in the field. So it worked for me. ;D

I couldn't watch this episode because I had a writing group meet-up, but I did see the last 15 minutes. I was worried Vance was going to get axed, and that would be the major change, revelation, blah blah blah blah. But nope. (Which I'm glad...) I like that the SecNav is tough, though.

I need to watch the rest of it. I'm intrigued by the McNozzo you mention, Sherry. And the Tabby. (BTW... next episode is an Abby one!! Hoping for some cute Tony & Abby scenes. There aren't enough these days...)

Hopefully OnDemand works for me. According to the cable guy, I'm not even supposed to get it, yet I still do, so... I won't complain.

The McNozzo was an interrogation scene & it was great. ;D The Tabby scene was basically Tony getting results, so nothing too exciting, but I was just happy they had a scene together, lol.

I'm kinda worried about next week's episode because the Abby episodes have gotten kinda weird over the past few seasons, BUT Steve Binder wrote it, so maybe that will save it. Chris Waild wrote this episode and I've decided I really like him as a writer, too. ;D

I think I generally like Chris Walid's eps, and he also has a thing for Gibbs' glasses, so I deeply approve of him for that ;D

He has written some good ones. And he reads people's tweets, which is always awesome. ;D I wonder if he was amused or just frightened by some of mine. LOL.

They were right in the thick of things, Pat. Gibbs & Vance did most of the fieldwork on this one, actually.

And we've sort of forgotten about the replacement knee, new hair and "constant pain;" and the "pissed at DiNozzo" stuff; and...

In other words, just another new season at NCIS... :sigh:

(on a related note -- a handful of random "signs" over the past year or so are making me worried that this will be MW's last year. He's always been so active in publicity stuff before, and always so chatty on Twitter, etc. That's changed -- a lot. I know he's got 2 little kids and a production company now, but ... he's got 2 little kids and a production company now. And when asked (for this recent TV Guide, I think) if he ever considered a spin off for Tony, having his own team, he said something along the lines of "yeah, that would be the logical next step." I keep hoping it's as a part of the Mothership, but who knows.

It just seems like over the past couple years, they haven't known what to do with Tony, and while of course it makes sense he'd mature, they don't know how to give him a mature sense of humor & fun. I wonder if part of that is that MW isn't finding it as much fun as he did before.

At any rate ... am worrying a bit these days... :sigh: )

Well, the show has been on for 13 seasons now. I know I'd be devastated for it to end, but it's going to happen sooner rather than later, I would imagine. I can't imagine the show lasting very long without either of them. But for the time being, nobody's going anywhere, so I think we should just enjoy this season, whatever may happen. :) But that's just the optimist in me, lol.

Finally got a chance to watch this episode (tech week and all that got in the way). When I first heard about the agent stealing from evidence I first thought this might be a knock-ff of the Monk episode where he teams up with a supposed "dirty cop" who is later cleared. Kind of glad it didn't go that way. Loved seeing Vance again (and in a different position than usual).

Agreed, Sherry. Honestly, I've counted every season beyond ten as a bonus - for some reason I imagined they'd do ten and wrap it up. To be on season 13? Fantastic. But people have been predicting its demise for years now, so I'm not assuming anything.

Just watched this episode today!

I really liked it, especially...

- Rocky. I'm fairly lukewarm about Vance as a character, but Rocky plays the part so well and so genuinely. The scenes in which he and Gibbs play off of each other were the best. Absolutely loved that verbal and mental sparring, and it made for some funny dialogue. Double trouble, indeed!
- Vance's toothpick habit.
- The "bad" ex-NCIS agent, who I thought was a brilliant thinker and really quite clever.
- Lump. That dude was awesome. He didn't die at the end, did he? This episode has some enjoyable tertiary characters.
"Does Lump have a real name?"
"I'm sure he does, but I don't exactly send out W-2s."
(I'm sure that isn't the exact wording, but it made me :rofl: )
- Tony pissing off that scary bookie, and refusing to back off. Ellie seemed mildly concerned.
"Listen you cocky SOB, you don't have anything on me and you know it."
- The Tabby scene. They're so rare these days.
- Tony and Tim doing the re-enactment in interrogation. "And I'll play a better-looking version of yourself."
- They seem to be playing down Vance's somewhat shady past as the seasons go on. I did find the "I'll protect the honest agents" remark funny considering the semi-legal/within-the-lines things Gibbs (and Co) and Vance have done themselves over the years. But hey, they are the apex of "good" so I guess you can't touch that! Maybe when someone steals some evidence and frame a co-worker or something they'll get permanently ostracized and never forgiven for it. :rofl:

I'm sure I'm excluding other scenes that I liked, but.... my memory is short.

and the "pissed at DiNozzo" stuff

Maybe I'm reading too much into things, but I did detect a trace of this when Tony called Gibbs and then the detective showed up. Gibbs has turned up the "harsh" in most of his conversations with him, if you pay attention. While Gibbs has always spoken bluntly and firmly to him in the past (and I expect it no other way!), now it seems more-so and all the time.

:rofl: We got this last night in the UK........... :rofl: Probie, bet Gibbs has waited years to say that.

Bits got me thinking, Sec Nav, said Vance had been in longer than his predecessors, and that 10yrs ago would have been season 3 and Jenny just taken over. Then in end of 5 when Jenny gets killed Vance is Dep Director. I know Vance says he understood now why he gave up being a field agent, (IMO he was pretty useless) and yes although I don't like his diplomacy skills, he does make a better Director than field agent.

Now, did anyone see Sec Nav's shoes..............they were to die for. ;D

(on a related note -- a handful of random "signs" over the past year or so are making me worried that this will be MW's last year. He's always been so active in publicity stuff before, and always so chatty on Twitter, etc. That's changed -- a lot. I know he's got 2 little kids and a production company now, but ... he's got 2 little kids and a production company now. And when asked (for this recent TV Guide, I think) if he ever considered a spin off for Tony, having his own team, he said something along the lines of "yeah, that would be the logical next step." I keep hoping it's as a part of the Mothership, but who knows.

It just seems like over the past couple years, they haven't known what to do with Tony, and while of course it makes sense he'd mature, they don't know how to give him a mature sense of humor & fun. I wonder if part of that is that MW isn't finding it as much fun as he did before.

At any rate ... am worrying a bit these days... :sigh: )

Wow. Forgot I'd written this; just checking out the thread since Pats updated.

Don't like being right in cases like this. :(
