NCIS: Gibbs Rules

The fact is some of these rules have shared numbers, some rules and their numbers are missing (yet to be revealed) and some have been revealed but not their number. The producers say the doubling up of some of the rules was intentional although many believe they are the result of continuity errors (at least in the earlier shows), which may be explained in later episodes, as some have been. However, it does go to show it is a living breathing set of rules, with changes being made as required by the circumstances. Perhaps Gibbs is human after all – or maybe the scriptwriters are!

Rule 1: Never screw over your partner.

From Season 4, episode 14 “Blowback”. This rule is likely to be from Gibbs’ Marine days where the Corps motto of Semper Fidelis (always faithful) comes into play and where they are likely to work in pairs, particularly as a sniper team. This rule is also shared with another Rule No. 1: “Never let suspects stay together” - from Season 1, episode 1 “Yankee White”. This rule has been broken a few times and is likely to come from his NCIS work, see rule 2 below.

Rule 2: Always wear gloves at a crime scene.

From Season 1, episode 1 “Yankee White” and is unlikely to be a personal rule of Gibbs but one from his NCIS work. Gibbs’ first boss at NCIS was character Mike Franks who told Gibbs that he didn’t need dozens of rules but just the three golden ones. The speculation is this could account for 2 sets of rules with 1 set having NCIS connections and why there may be (or are) 2 rules for each of the first three rules! The producers have said they have yet to reveal the double up on rule 2.

Rule 3: Never be unreachable.

From Season 3, episode 13 “Deception”, however Gibbs has been known to intentionally break this rule on numerous occasions. This rule is also shared with another Rule No. 3: “Don't believe what you're told. Double check”, from Season 1, episode 1 “Yankee White”. This second rule No.3 is likely to be for his NCIS work, see Rule 2 above.

Rule 4: The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best.

From Season 4, episode 14 “Blowback”.

Rule 5: You don't waste good.

From Season 8, episode 22 “Baltimore”.

Rule 6: Never say you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness.

This rule is mentioned numerous times throughout the show, but is first “numbered” in Season 7, episode 12 “Flesh and Blood”. The rule is very similar to the phrase: “Never apologize, mister, it's a sign of weakness,” used by actor John Wayne in the 1949 film “She wore a yellow ribbon.” This is referred to in a later episode when another character in the show says he believes Gibbs got this rule from “the Duke himself”. Although this is the most often quoted rule, it is also the rule most often broken by Gibbs (over half a dozen times). In Season 4, episode 16 “Smoked” he even adds a caveat to the rule explaining “an apology isn't a sign of weakness if it's between friends.”

Rule 7: Always be specific when you lie.

From Season 1, episode 23 “Reveille”.

Rule 8: Never take anything for granted.

From Season 3, episode 10 “Probie” – the rule is also stated as: “Never assume” in Season 9, episode 21 “Rekindled”.

Rule 9: Never go anywhere without a knife.

From Season 1 episode 13 “One Shot, One Kill” – the rule also has some variations mentioned in the show, such as: "never leave home without a knife", "always carry a knife" etc. This phrase can be found in the 1903 book “The Riddle of the Sands” by Erskine Childers and is explained with the supporting comment “It was his seaman’s idea of efficiency”. It seems carrying a knife has been commonplace for sailors (since at least the 1800’s) and so is no surprise for a Marine to use this rule.

Rule 10: Never get personally involved in a case.

From Season 7, episode 21 “Obsession”, and Gibbs admits this is the rule he has most trouble with. In a later episode this rule is also referred to as the “number one rule in Washington politics”.

Rule 11: When the job is done, walk away.

From Season 6, episode 24 “Semper Fidelis”. In the book “Hidden Language Codes” by R. Neville Johnston this is described as: “the gift called “Duty Done. To leave people to marshal their own resources is an act of kindness.”

Rule 12: Never date a co-worker.

From Season 1, episode 15 “Enigma”. This has happened once before and it’s possible the rule was instigated as a result of Gibbs’ romantic relationship with the character Jenny Shepard (a previous probationary agent of his and a future NCIS Director).

Rule 13: Never, ever involve lawyers.

From Season 6, episode 7 “Collateral Damage”. According to another character, Gibbs has 6 other rules involving lawyers but, “You only need to know number 13; it's the umbrella one.” Gibbs has however broken this rule at least once before, to help an ex-mother-in-law.

Rule 14: Bend the line, don't break it.

From Season 11, episode 4 “Anonymous was a Woman”.

Rule 15: Always work as a team.

From Season 5, episode 5 “Leap of Faith”.

Rule 16: If someone thinks they have the upper hand, break it.

From Season 8, episode 24 “Pyramid”.

Rule 18: It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission.

From Season 3, episode 4 “Silver War”.

Rule 20: Always look under.

From Season 12, episode 17 “The Artful Dodger”.

Rule 22: Never ever bother Gibbs in interrogation.

From Season 4, episode 10 “Smoked”.

Rule 23: Never mess with a Marine's coffee if you want to live.

From Season 2, episode 9 “Forced Entry”.

Rule 27: There are two ways to follow someone. First way, they never notice you. Second way, they only notice you.

From Season 7, episode 15 “Jack Knife”.

Rule 35: Always watch the watchers.

From Season 8, episode 22 “Baltimore”.

Rule 36: If you feel like you are being played, you probably are.

From Season 9, episode 1 “Nature of the Beast”.

Rule 38: Your case, your lead.

From Season 6, episode 16 “Bounce”.

Rule 39: There is no such thing as coincidence.

From Season 7, episode 21 “Obsession” – in a later episode another character quotes their own version of this as “Rule 39A there is no such thing as a small world”.

Rule 40: If it seems like someone is out to get you, they are.

From Season 7, episode 22 “Borderland”.

Rule 42: Never accept an apology from someone who just sucker punched you.

From Season 9, episode 16 “Psych Out”.

Rule 44: First things first, hide the women and children.

From Season 7, episode 23 “Patriot Down”.

Rule 45: Clean up the mess that you make.

From season 7, episode 24 “Rule Fifty-One” – the rule is also stated as “Never leave behind loose ends” in Season 3, episode 24 “Hiatus Part 2”.

Rule 51: Sometimes you're wrong.

From season 7, episode 24 “Rule Fifty-One” when it is written on the back of the card with Rule 13 on it, kept in the small tin at Gibbs’ home.

Rule 62: Always give people space when they get off an elevator.

From Season 11, episode 13 “Double Back”.

Rule 69: Never trust a woman who doesn't trust her man.

From Season 9, episode 7 “Devil’s Triangle”.

NCISfanatic GIBBS HEADSLAP

 

And remember…

“A slap to the face is an insult — to the back of the head is a wake-up call.”

NOTES:

In 3×05 ‘Switch’ we learn there are actually about 50 Rules. In 3×15 ‘Deception’ the writers seem to have forgotten that they already used Rule #3. A new Rule #1 is given in episode 4×11 ‘Blowback’ creating another duplicate. Some have speculated that the original Rules #1 and #3 are actually ‘Crime Scene Rules’ and not Gibbs’ Rules. There are also theories that because the rules are not written down, the numbers may be fluid. Regardless, we now have two versions of Rule #1 and Rule #3. However, with the Season 7 Finale 3×15 ‘Deception’, we have some clarification that Gibbs’ Rule #3 is actually “Never be unreachable.” At the end of the episode, Rule #3 is visible on a scrap of paper inside the box. That makes sense because Gibbs’ Rule #3 wasn’t mentioned until season 3 when the writers had put at least a little thought into Gibbs having a set of rules. Using that theory, it makes sense that Gibbs Rule #1 is “Never screw over your partner,” mentioned the first time in season 4.

Here is NCIS Executive Producer Shane Brennan’s surprising explanation:
“Gibbs lives his life by a set of rules that took root from the first day he met Shannon. Over time, Gibbs added to the rules. When he joined NIS, Mike Franks told him he didn’t need dozens of different rules to be an agent… just three ‘golden rules.’ And this is why we have double ups on rules #1 and #3. Three of them are Gibbs’ rules; three of them are Mike Franks’ rules. We are still to reveal the double-up on rule #2. And it’s up to the fans to guess which of the rules were Mike Franks’ three golden rules and which were Gibbs’.”

One of Gibbs’ Rules that has not been strictly followed is Rule #6, “Never apologize. It’s a sign of weakness.”Another is Rule #3, “Never be unreachable.” Gibbs often leaves his cell phone behind when he does not want to be reached. Gibbs’ Rule #6 is “Never apologize — It’s a sign of weakness,” however Gibbs has made at least six exceptions to Rule #6:

1. His apology to Kate for being late to her funeral.
2. His apology to McGee for not backing him up when he was interrogated
(and arrested) by the DC Metro Police.
3. His apology to Franks because of his amnesia.
4. His apology to Ducky following his return from Mexico.
5. His apology to Joann for not being able to protect Shannon and Kelly.
6. His apology to Abby in the Season 7 Finale, Rule Fifty-One.

UPDATES:

Season 7 — Rule #44, Rule #45, Rule #51: Gibbs mentioned Rule #44 In episode 7×23 ‘Patriot Down’ when sending a warning to Mike Franks, explained in the Season Finale as, “First things first. Hide the women and children.” Rule #51, “Sometimes — You’re wrong,” was given during the Season 7 NCIS Finale 7×24 ‘Rule Fifty-One’ and Rule #45 was mentioned without an explanation.

Season 8 — Rule #5, Rule #16, Rule #35: After a long wait, two new rules were introduced in 8×22 ‘Baltimore’ an episode that finally revealed how Anthony DiNozzo became an NCIS agent. Rule #35, “Always watch the watchers” and Rule #5, “You don’t waste good” …Gibbs’ mentions Rule #5 and tells Tony, “You’re good.” Later, In the Season 8 Finale, Tony mentions Gibbs’ Rule #16 to E.J. Barrett, “If someone thinks they have the upper-hand …break it!.”

NCIS is made up of an interesting cast of characters. Fans will agree the most interesting in the bunch is Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). One thing that makes him stand out from the rest is the fact that he has a set of rules he expects everyone on the team to follow. There are 69 rules, but not all of them have been revealed. Here’s a rundown of Gibbs’ rules.

Gibbs's Rules are an extensive series of guidelines that NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs lives by and teaches to the people he works closely with.

Origins

In Season 1's "Missing", Tony guessed that the rules originated with the Marine Corps, but Gunnery Sergeant Bill Atlas confessed that he had never heard of them.

On the other hand, during the Season 2 episode, Forced Entry (episode) when Rule Twenty-Three was once referred to during a case, a nearby MP quoted the rule correctly.

Later, in Season 6's "Heartland", Tony asked Jackson Gibbs whether he had taught the rules to Leroy, but Jackson ruefully said he hadn't managed to teach his son much of anything.

It was revealed in the last few minutes of "Heartland" that Gibbs's rules originated from his first wife, Shannon Gibbs, where she told him at their first meeting that "Everyone needs a code they can live by". The only rule of Shannon's personal code that is quoted is either her first or third: "Never date a lumberjack."

Years later, after their wedding, Gibbs began writing his rules down, keeping them in a small tin inside his home which was shown in the Season 7 finale episode, Rule Fifty-One (episode). Though he uses it often we almost never see the tin.

The knowledge of the rules's origins is left as a mystery to the people that Gibbs works with, though some of them do make concentrated efforts to find out. Anthony DiNozzo makes several attempts to find out who taught Gibbs the rules, though he has not yet met with any success.

Rules

At the beginning of her tenure with NCIS, during the Season 3 episode, Switch (episode) Gibbs informed Ziva David that there were approximately fifty rules that were his job to teach her.

Some years later, Gibbs added the "51" Rule to the tin he kept the rules in while according to Tony, seven of the rules directly concern lawyers, and that the eighth rule was inspired by a lawyer as revealed during the Season 6 episode, Collateral Damage (episode). Rule forty and above are not rules necessary for everyday life, they are for emergencies.

Although there are presumably at least 91 rules by the time of "Rule 91" in Season 18, not all of even the ones so far mentioned are in [list of Gibbs' Rules]. Currently, the list only includes rules up to Rule 69.

The Rules

NumberRuleReferenced inNotes
1(1) Never let suspects stay together. "Yankee White" (Season 1);
"Ships in the Night" (Season 8)
According to McGee in "Ships in the Night", Rule Number One has actually been taken twice (see below).

"Need to Know" (Season 9)
2 Always wear gloves at a crime scene. "Yankee White" (Season 1)
3(1) Don't believe what you're told. Double check. "Yankee White" (Season 1) This rule appears similar to Rule #8.
3(2) Never be unreachable. "Deception" (Season 3), "Rule Fifty-One" (Season 7) However, Gibbs has been known to be intentionally unreachable at times, normally when going undercover on a whim to maintain cover.
4 The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best. "Blowback" (Season 4)
5 You don't waste good. "Baltimore " (Season 8)
6 Never say you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness. "Flesh and Blood" (Season 8) Referenced throughout the series (often with a smack to the back of the head), but not given a specific rule number until this episode. The rule is also a direct reference to John Wayne's catch phrase in She Wore A Yellow Ribbon: "Never apologize, mister, it's a sign of weakness." DiNozzo notes the connection in Hiatus Part 1.
7 Always be specific when you lie. "Reveille" (Season 1)
8 Never take anything for granted. "Probie" (Season 3) Gibbs also quotes it as being "Never assume" during "Rekindled" (Season 9).

10 Never get personally involved in a case. "Obsession" (Season 7);
"She" (Season 16)
In ObsessionAnthony Dinozzo admitted to Gibbs that he has broken rule 10 again to which Gibbs responds "Yeah, that is the I've had the most trouble with:"

12 Never date a co-worker. "Enigma" (Season 1);
"Jet Lag" (Season 7)

Unnumbered Rules

RuleReferenced inNotes

Don't work the system when you can work the people. "Hung Out to Dry" (Season 1)
Don't stop checking and rechecking evidence until you are satisfied. "Light Sleeper" (Season 3) Appears duplicative of Rule #3.
If you want to find something, you follow it. "Deliverance" (Season 6) According to Gibbs, he learned this one from Mike Franks.
Never second guess yourself in a relationship and life.

Other People's Rules

Exceptions

Although Gibbs has his list of rules to live by, he does not always adhere to them. One example is Rule #3. When Gibbs does not wish to be reached, he has been known to leave his cell phone behind. Except that many believe that to be one of Frank's rules since there are two Rule #3's. The other being 'Don't believe what you're told. Double check,' which sounds more like Gibbs. Also, on the anniversary of his last marriage, he unplugged his home phone and dropped his cell phone in paint thinner after his ex-wife began harassing him with phone calls. Gibbs also admits that rule number 10 is the one that he has had the most "trouble with" in "Obsession".

Gibbs broke Rule #1 (Never let suspects stay together) in "Ships in the Night" in order to get a confession. This also occurred in Caught on Tape (episode) but the suspects turned out to be innocent. Additionally, Gibbs broke the rule in A Man Walks into a Bar (episode) but the suspects were only guilty of covering up suicide, not murder.

Gibbs broke rule #13 (Never involve a lawyer) in Mother's Day (episode) Gibbs's ex mother in law becomes a suspect in a murder of a Navy officer. Gibbs contact Allison Hart, a lawyer, to represent her.

Gibbs also broke Rule #12 with former NCIS Director and partner in Europe, Jenny Shepard. Jenny was Gibbs' probie in their Europe missions and became romantically involved, which was ended by Jenny so she could lead her own team in Madrid. Although, since the relationship ended badly, some people suspect that this rule was created because of this relationship.

Another exception that Gibbs sometimes makes concerns Rule #6. Though Gibbs constantly tells people around him to never apologize, that it is a sign of weakness, he himself has apologized on at least seven occasions:

  1. To Caitlin Todd for being late to her funeral in Kill Ari Part 2 (episode).
  2. To Donald Mallard following his return from Mexico in Smoked (episode).
  3. To Joann Fielding for not being able to protect Shannon Gibbs and Kelly Gibbs in "Mother's Day".
  4. To Abigail Sciuto for frightening her and not being able to tell her what she wants to hear in "Rule Fifty-One".
  5. To the victim's lover for her loss, although he originally believes that she was being selfish in "A Man Walks Into a Bar".
  6. To Timothy McGee for not being with him when he was accused of shooting a cop in "Probie".
  7. To "The General" (Captain Wescott) in Shell Shock Part 2 (episode) for making him face a former serviceman and teammate, in which the encounter went poorly. Gibbs said, "That was my bad," for making Westcott agree to the meeting.
  8. To Mike Franks in Hiatus Part 2 (episode).

Though not shown, in "Semper Fidelis" ICE Agent Julia Foster-Yates claims that Gibbs and Fornell apologized to her for accusing her of murdering a coworker. McGee is shocked at the idea that either of them would apologize.

Gibbs also almost never accepts an apology from someone, preferring to simply offer correction to whomever made an error in an attempt to teach a lesson. One exception to this aspect of the rule was when McGee apologized concerning the situation with his sister, Sarah McGee in Twisted Sister (episode). Gibbs has also accepted some apologies because they are covered by rule #18: "It's better to seek forgiveness, than ask permission."

Also an apology isn't a sign of weakness if it's between friends, as Gibbs tells Dr. Mallard in "Smoked".

Although not strictly an exception, Gibbs did add a sort of corollary to Rule 39 concerning coincidences. In Head Case (episode) when Tony says, "We don't believe in coincidences around here," Gibbs added, "However, we do believe in bad luck."

In the same episode that Rule 17 was revealed, it was also made clear that an exception to the rule against interrupting Gibbs during an interrogation is if the information anyone in the NCIS Major Case Response Team uncovered was important and relevant enough to the case at hand that it was worth an interruption. Similarly, in Pay to Play (episode), it was revealed that while directly interrupting an interrogation was not allowed unless whatever information was uncovered was important enough to the case to make it necessary, sending a text to the person with Gibbs and bring him or her out if they uncovered anything in the case is tolerated.

Rule 10 was eventually retired in She (episode). This alongside some complications arising in ...and Executioner (episode) relating to the revelation of Gibbs' role in Pedro Hernandez's death as well as being forced to admit it to his team ultimately caused him to have a nervous breakdown before ultimately making peace with himself in Daughters (episode)

Duplications

Throughout the series, there have been two rules referenced as the first and third of Gibbs' rules. For some time, it was believed that the duplications were either continuity errors or that the list of rules was meant to be malleable. Eventually, however, Executive Producer Shane Brennan revealed that the duplication was actually intentional:

"Gibbs lives his life by a set of rules that took root from the first day he met Shannon. Over time, Gibbs added to the rules. When he joined NCIS, Mike Franks told him he didn't need dozens of different rules to be an agent... just three 'golden rules.' And this is why we have double ups on rules #1 and #3. Three of them are Gibbs' rules; three of them are Mike Franks’ rules. We are still to reveal the double-up on rule #2. And it's up to the fans to guess which of the rules were Mike Franks’ three golden rules and which were Gibbs'.” (Shane Brennan's explanation of the duplication of Rules #1 and #3.) In spite of this, however, Franks seems to know Gibbs' rules as well as anyone, as evidenced in the episode "Patriot Down" when Gibbs passed the message "Rule #44" (First things first: hide the women and children) to him through Camilla.

The 40s

While most of the rules are for everyday use, Gibbs' rules 40-49 are considered emergency rules, to be invoked only in the most dire of circumstances. ("Rule Fifty-One") When Gibbs told Abby that rule 40 was in play, and Abby told Tony, he took it to mean that "something unspeakably bad is going down."

The Complete List of Gibbs Rules - NCIS

I write about many subjects typically surrounding my kids, including fundraising, gifts for children, vacations, and Boy Scouts.

Special Agent Jethro Gibbs and His Rules

On the TV show NCIS, Jethro Gibbs provides words to live by in the form of Gibbs Rules. There are many different Gibbs Rules, some are based on being an agent like rule #9 - "Don't Go Anywhere Without a Knife". Others are based on being in the Marines like rule #23 - "Don't Mess With a Marines Coffee, If You Want to Live". Some are based on life like rule #44 - "First Things First, Hide the Women and Children". At one point, Dinozzo revealed there were seven rules that dealt with lawyers, to date, we've only heard one of the seven.

In season 3, episode 4, Zeva ask Gibbs how many rules he has, and Gibbs states 50. In the final episode of season 7, when Gibbs turns over rule #13 and writes rule #51. Since then, Rule 69 was revealed, indicating, the fearless NCIS leader has been adding to his list.

In total only 35 of Gibbs rules have been revealed. At first, it was thought there were only 50 rules, however, as the seasons have gone on, there seems to be a growing number of rules as the latest rule 73 was revealed in Season 16.

Maddie roe age 16 on June 08, 2019:

For me its Gibbs rule #23 : "Never mess with a Marine's coffee, If you want to live." My bff is a Marine and you mess with his coffee than you better run

Tom Fattes (author) from Naperville, IL on November 13, 2018:

Thank you for the update. I need to go back and watch the episode again.

Tom Fattes (author) from Naperville, IL on November 13, 2018:

Thank you. I missed this tonight.

John Ervin on November 13, 2018:

I think Gibbs mentioned rule 73 in "A Thousand Words" (16.7). "Never meet your Heroes"

Rule 73 on November 13, 2018:

Never meet your heros

November 13th 2018

DFYcontent on July 24, 2014:

That's like asking which one of your kids you like best ;-)

The one that springs to mind right now is Stakeout (5x12). Loved the crime, the team interactions,... just a very enjoyable and fun episode to watch (again and again).

anonymous on November 03, 2012:

when Abby and Ziva slap each other

anonymous on July 04, 2012:

#37 has been revealed. Tony gave McGee Gibbs's coffee......#37 never mess with a marines coffee. And then of course they mentioned something about "dead man walking" :D

GrowthSpark on May 06, 2012:

Thanks for pulling all the rules together, I hear them on the program and often wonder if they are duplicated as I don't keep track. I just love the NCIS humor.

grannysage on May 04, 2012:

Kate: What did Ducky look like when he was younger?

Gibbs (smiling slightly): Illya Kuryakin.

I'm a David McCallum fan. This is a great lens.

ssalunkhe on April 17, 2012:

Thanks for sharing the lens. I would love to live my life by Gibbs rules.

DesignedbyLisa LM on February 27, 2012:

I was looking for this list! Thanks for keeping track.

Nightcat on February 27, 2012:

This is awesome, I was hoping a list of his rules would come out some day. Angel Blessings!

Nancy Tate Hellams from Pendleton, SC on February 27, 2012:

I loved seeing these 50 Jethro Gibbs Rules. I love all the NCIS episodes and have probably seen each of them at least 3 times. I can't think of my favorite right now.

MyFairLadyah2 on February 08, 2012:

Love this show - Can't think of a favorite episonde/moment - Nice Lens!

Tom Fattes (author) from Naperville, IL on January 11, 2012:

@Gail47: Our whole family gathers around the TV on Tuesday nights to watch NCIS. Kids must have their homework done first though, Dad's rule #2.

Tom Fattes (author) from Naperville, IL on January 11, 2012:

@ijbgraphics: Yep, I think that was at the beginning of season 7. We've been watching each season in order.

ijbgraphics on January 11, 2012:

when they go to rescue Ziva and Gibbs snipes the terrorist :) Nice lens btw

Gail47 on December 21, 2011:

Tony and Ziva in Paris - those to actors have great charisma! Love all of NCIS and have watched every NCIS on USA there is. Family knows when "Gibbs" is on, I'm rarely available. Wonderful lens.

anonymous on October 10, 2011:

I'm glad to find your lens. I now know what to get my sister-in-law for Christmas. She is the biggest NCIS fan in the state of Alabama. She DVRs every episode and watches them over and over. I didn't know there were NCIS tee shirts...I've put this lens in favorites and will have to get her one for Christmas...she will love it! Cool lens!

Nathalie Roy from France (Canadian expat) on October 07, 2011:

I love his grumpy character on NCIS. I think the best scenes are when he is interacting with Abby.

APackageAtTheDoor on September 28, 2011:

We just recently started watching NCIS, and I think what hooked me was a scene from one of the first episodes I saw, "Twisted Sister" about McGee's sister. It's a scene with Gibbs, Jenny and Abby. Abby starts imitating Gibbs and Jenny and then says something like, "The kids don't like it when the parents argue." My jaw just dropped and I howled with laughter. I knew I was going to love this show!

bernie74 lm on May 21, 2011:

Oh My, there are just too man to choose from. I could sit and re watch them all. But I must admit I do love the episode where Tone and Tim a caught and Tony is injected with truth serum and they find out that Ziva is still alive. and the look her and Gibs exchange when she is being recued is awesome.But there are many others

Tom Fattes (author) from Naperville, IL on May 21, 2011:

@anonymous: I had to go back and look at the episode again because I had originally marked it as Rule 16. After watching the episode I did verify it was Rule 16.

anonymous on May 21, 2011:

Gibb's Rule #14 was revealed in the last episode of this season (May, 2011). Tony said:"If the suspect has the upper hand - break it."

Jen from Canada on January 07, 2011:

I love Gibbs Rules and Head Slaps (though these seem to be dwindling). Twilight is the episode that sticks out and S.W.A>k. I also like the McGee heavy episodes. He's my favorite character. Rule 3 and Rule 8 seem similar to me. I wonder if they noticed that in hind sight.

TeacherSerenia on January 07, 2011:

I dont have any favourite NCIS moment but I love any moments with Abbey or McGee in them. I think they are both very smart. I hate DiNozzo always puttin McGee down - especially when he calls McGee Probie - that is just plain nasty.

Wednesday-Elf from Savannah, Georgia on November 15, 2010:

I love ALL NCIS episodes and have many favorite moments. But my favorite 'Line' was said by Tony - "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got!" The many NCIS fans in my family quote that line to each other frequently, in appropriate moments. It should be a Gibbs RULE! :)

Gibbs Rules are a part of NCIS that I look forward to in each episode. Keep waiting to hear more. Such fun to read them altogether here. And, am absolutely crazy about the 'bloopers' - hadn't seen them before! Good job putting this together. ~~A SquidAngel NCIS fan is leaving a Blessing~~
