Whenever Robert Wagner comes on NCIS, it's always a must-see episode.
1. He reveals embarrassing facts about DiNozzo, Jr.
He once told the entire NCIS team that DiNozzo, Jr. keeps his emergency cash in a drawer next to the moisturizing lotion.
2. He gets DiNozzo, Jr. wound up
Whenever Sr. arrives, Tony is usually riding a wave of fear, just wondering what crazy thing is going to happen next. Like when Sr. consulted for NCIS, led a team meeting, and even ended up going under cover in "The Artful Dodger."
3. They both react when someone calls out "DiNozzo!"
Like father like son, both turn around when someone says their name. Of course, why wouldn't they? But it's just really funny when it happens. Especially DiNozzo, Jr.'s reaction.
4. The resemblance is uncanny
It's striking how much a young Robert Wagner (DiNozzo, Sr.) looks like Michael Weatherly (DiNozzo, Jr.). If there are any scientists out there, let us know if cloning was around when Michael Weatherly was born.
5. When he talks, people listen
Of course—it's Robert Wagner!
6. He teaches us about fine dining
Only the classiest cuisine should pass Sr.'s lips! This fancy foodie loves a good bite, which is why he picked up his son's Valentine's Day gift certificate from a renowned Italian restaurant. It was such a sweet gesture, we almost forgot that DiNozzo still gets Valentine's Day cards from his daddy—almost.
7. He has a way with the ladies
Anthony DiNozzo, Sr., you devil! He knows when to flash that smile (like when a lady is around).
8. He drops "DiNozzo-isms"
9. He can make Gibbs smile
Whenever Sr. arrives, he tends to soften up a certain stone-faced special agent—which otherwise can be a rare event!
10. He's ridiculous in the best way possible
Especially when he says things like, "Son, your art thief is going to come to your papa."
11. He spreads the love around
DiNozzo, Sr. doesn't just drop by to hang out with his son. When he appears on NCIS we get to see him interact with all the characters that make this show great. Here he is on assignment with McGee.
12. He's always well-dressed
Can any other character on NCIS match the dapper style of DiNozzo, Sr.? His suit game is on point, he's always clean-shaven, and check out that pocket square!
13. It's always memorable
Everytime Sr. shows up at NCIS, it's one of those episodes that you remember for the rest of the season. Thank you Robert Wagner for making our show one of the best on TV!
