17 Things We're Going To Miss About DiNozzo

Farewell, DiNozzo!

Farewell, DiNozzo!

After 13 incredible years, NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo is turning in his badge. Together, we've laughed, cried, and gone on countless adventures. To say we'll miss him would be a grave understatement.

But, before we say goodbye to the charming man we've grown to love and admire, let's reflect on just a few of the things we'll miss about him most. 

Watch the Season 13 finale of NCIS on Tuesday, May 17 at 8/7c on CBS.
1. His infectious smile

1. His infectious smile

Some people have a natural ability to light up any room they enter. Just their presence makes others a bit happier. DiNozzo is one of them.

From his charming smirks to full-blown smiles, DiNozzo's upbeat personality has the power to even make Gibbs grin.
 
2. His fearlessness and loyalty

2. His fearlessness and loyalty

Though DiNozzo has a great sense of humor, he's not merely a class clown. At his core, he's an incredibly loyal and dedicated agent who would do anything to protect the ones he cares about, even if that means risking his own life.

Perhaps the most notable instance was when he single-handedly shot two suspects, dove into water, and pulled a drowning Gibbs to safety
3. His interactions with his father

DiNozzo and his father have a... well, interesting relationship. But, through all of their ups-and-downs, the father-son duo always manage to have each other's backs. 

We'll miss learning little tidbits about DiNozzo's childhood and watching these two, strong-willed men go head-to-head.
5. His endearing (and hilarious) nicknames for McGee

5. His endearing (and hilarious) nicknames for McGee

Everyone needs a friend they can be themselves around—especially when your job is as high-stress as an NCIS agent's. Luckily, DiNozzo had his one-and-only Probie to fight bad guys and crack jokes with at the office. 

Over the years, DiNozzo lovingly chided, beckoned, and annoyed McGee with a slew of goofy nicknames. From McGossip and McGeek to McCupid and McGiggle, DiNozzo came up with enough pet names to fill a book!
6. His team spirit

6. His team spirit

From Washington D.C. and Los Angeles to New Orleans and Russia, DiNozzo has taken his leadership across the globe to save lives and guide other NCIS agents.

Of course, not everyone is completely drawn to DiNozzo's magnetic charm. It's okay, Deeks. We'd be jealous of his bright smile and impeccable fashion sense, too.
 
7. His dating advice

7. His dating advice

Sure, DiNozzo's love life has been complicated—he said goodbye to Jeanne and unknowingly had a romantic evening with a wanted criminal—but, that doesn't mean he hasn't picked up a few lessons along the way. From swoon-worthy lines to conducting background checks, DiNozzo has all the dating advice you could ever need.
8. His endless bank of pop culture knowledge

8. His endless bank of pop culture knowledge

If you're looking for the perfect quote or a rockin' playlist, DiNozzo's your guy. His deep bank of pop culture references—and his love for a certain secret agent—always kept us laughing.  
9. His office antics

Between the abundant amount of caffeine and DiNozzo's pranks, the three-o'clock slump doesn't really exist at NCIS headquarters. 
11. His interrogation skills

11. His interrogation skills

DiNozzo had a knack for cracking the bad guys... especially when the story involved one of Gibbs' ex-wives!
12. His great apartment

12. His great apartment

Ah, there's no place like home.

For years, we wondered just how DiNozzo could afford such nice digs. With its cozy fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and spacious living room, this bachelor pad was totally dreamy.

Thanks to a little digging by Bishop and McGee, we finally learned how he came across his after-work sanctuary. Living at the scene of a triple-homicide may not be for everyone, but it certainly worked in DiNozzo's favor!
13. His knack for keeping us on our toes

13. His knack for keeping us on our toes

Just when we thought we knew him, DiNozzo—or his father—would reveal something unknown about his past. Did you know he was once referred to as the "little poo boy"? How about the fact that he keeps a double-sided picture frame on his shelf displaying photos of himself posing with a dog and a cat on either side? There's always room for surprises! 
14. His sharp style

14. His sharp style

If there's one thing that looked better than a smile on DiNozzo, it was a freshly pressed suit. The man could charm a room without even saying a word. Although, his smooth talk didn't hurt him, either... at least most of the time.
15. His flexibility

In addition to being a team player, DiNozzo taught us that going with the flow can really help you get ahead at work. While you may think you look ridiculous doing yoga in the park, your boss may just notice your efforts—and your form! 
16. His huge group of admirers

When you're as witty and talented as DiNozzo, you're sure to garner a few fans, be they adoring women, a couple of identity thieves, or millions of NCIS viewers.
17. His heart of gold

Some people are remembered for their success. Others are remembered for being a friendly face. And, while DiNozzo was a man of many talents, surprises, flirtations, and jokes, we'll remember him most for his huge heart.

Thank you for 13 side-splitting, action-packed, beautiful, and memorable years. We'll miss you dearly.

Make sure to say goodbye to DiNozzo by watching the Season 13 finale of NCIS on Tuesday, May 17 at 8/7c on CBS.
