1. When Delilah and McGee spoke in a modified binary code.

1. When Delilah and McGee spoke in a modified binary code.

Aw, relationships. They can be messy and at times frustrating. But, what do you do when you need to settle a private dispute with your significant other in a public place? Come up with your own modified binary code, of course!

Perhaps DiNozzo summed this one up best in "Viral" (Episode 6, Season 13) when he said McGee "can't even argue like a cool cyborg." 
2. When Abby gave Delilah and Bishop rings to solidify the Dream Cyber Team.

2. When Abby gave Delilah and Bishop rings to solidify the Dream Cyber Team.

Girl power reached a new high when three of the smartest ladies around formed a crime-solving trio. Watch out, criminals, you do not want to mess with this dream team!
3. When Abby made Gibbs play a Halloween game.

3. When Abby made Gibbs play a Halloween game.

Is there anyone more excited for Halloween than Abby? Not only did she deck out her lab, but she also came up with a cute trick-or-treat game for Gibbs. Although he unearthed the evidence from underneath the correct pumpkin, Abby still let him see the spooky spider "trick" she had cleverly prepared. 
4. When Bishop thanked McGee in his modified binary code.

4. When Bishop thanked McGee in his modified binary code.

Although Delilah and McGee’s binary-code argument confused Tony, it didn’t stop Bishop from thanking McGee in the same code later that day. After McGee talked through her worries regarding Jake, Bishop said, "00110." McGee's response? "You're welcome."
5. Every time Jimmy Palmer has tried to crack a joke.

5. Every time Jimmy Palmer has tried to crack a joke.

We all know someone who laughs at his own jokes. Jimmy Palmer is one of them. 

One of our favorite Palmer flops happened during a conversation with Ducky about penguin prostitution. Instead of asking his mentor to elaborate, Palmer simply stated "Stilettos must be murder on the ice" before bursting into laughter in "Patience" (Episode 19, Season 12).
6. When Abby played teacher and scolded a safety manufacturer's representative.

6. When Abby played teacher and scolded a safety manufacturer's representative.

Don't mess with Miss Sciuto! Abby had zero tolerance for a company that was knowingly selling faulty bulletproof vests in "Bulletproof" (Episode 15, Season 11). Before she questioned a man from the company, she set up her lab like a classroom, and when he arrived, she commanded him to "sit" in the desk she assigned to him. 

Tell him, Abs! 
7. When McGee admitted he used to be a tap dancer.

7. When McGee admitted he used to be a tap dancer.

McGee and Delilah learned the hard way that relationships require sacrifice. Unfortunately for McGee, his sacrifices didn't just end at home. When DiNozzo went through McGee's box of personal belongings, he discovered that his co-worker used to be a dancer. 

While McGee could have been embarrassed, he owned it, saying that not only did he dance, but he was so talented that people called him "Timmy 'Soft Shoes Savant' McGee." 
8. When Abby decorated Gibbs' desk to persuade him.

8. When Abby decorated Gibbs' desk to persuade him.

Not many people would bake cupcakes and tie balloons on their boss's desks in order to win them over, but Abby is no ordinary person. When she wanted to move out of the basement and swap office space with Accounting, Abby strung a banner saying "World's Greatest Boss" to convince Gibbs to work his magic in "Lockdown" (Episode 5, Season 13).
