@stevebinder I'm curious - is the 11x04 McAbby dialogue connected to 3x03 dialogue or is it just a coincidence I'm seeing parallels?
McGee: [enter the Labby with a Caf-Pow] Hey, Abby! Ducky said you pulled some prints on our Jane Doe. Any luck? [hands her the Caf-Pow]
Abby: Luck? Is that what you think happens in here?
McGee: No, I just meant...
Abby: It's Tuesday, so no back-tracking.
The McAbby dialogue from 11x04 "Anonymous was a woman" reminded me of their dialogue from 3x03 "Mind Games"
Abby: Ha. I'm impressed - it's actually working.
McGee: Thank you! Now all we have to do is scan through 800 thousand miles of satellite imagery, and pray we get lucky.
Abby: I am a scientist, McGee. Luck has nothing to do with it and/or us.
McGee: Okay...then how do you explain something like Gibbs' gut?
Abby: Well, that's easy. Gibbs is lucky.
McGee: But...you just said that...
Abby: [interrupts him] He's not a scientist!
PS. Thanks for all the McAbby scenes. Keep the friendship alive on screen, and please make Abby hurry up to get to be on the same page with Timmy, and be ready to see where their relationship is going, so that after a decade of knowing each other these two could SOON find their happily ever after. These two geniuses deserve it. (PS. I'm sorry, Dee, but you have to go. Too bad it's not happening as soon as I wished.)
