Gibbs makes moonshine?! How did I miss this fact? It seems like I was way more interesting in what was happening with the team then the murder in this episode of “NCIS.”

Me: I knew Shmuel wasn’t going to be a boyfriend type. Tony was just too obsessed with figuring it out.

Dad: Yeah, but did you see his face when Ziva walked out with Shmuel? That was not who he expected. Ha ha ha.

Me: When has Tony ever gotten a Ziva mystery right?

Dad: Never. But that didn’t stop him from trying the whole episode.

I think the reason I focused more on the team was because the father of the kidnapped victim was annoying me. I get it, you’re angry with yourself for not picking up your daughter. That doesn’t mean you could have stopped your friend from getting murdered, or your daughter’s kidnapping. Take a chill pill. Oh, and don’t question Gibbs.

Dad: I wanted him to punch him.

Me: Wait, who’s doing the punching?

Dad: Gibbs should have punched that girl’s father in the face.

Me: If I got kidnapped, wouldn’t you be making sure the police did everything they could to find me?

Dad: Eh, you’re old enough to take care of yourself.

Me: Thanks.

Dad: (Laughter).

The Miranda Pennybaker storyline got me thinking, how many people who participate in illegal activities does the government just monitor? Are they waiting for them to cross a bigger line? Or do they think they’ll eventually lead to bigger fish?

My favorite moment of the night, other than Shmuel, was when Ducky head-slapped Tony for imitating him. Ha! I’m beginning to wonder who hasn’t slapped Tony.

Dad: Palmer. He’d never have the guts.
