NCIS Scoop: Gibbs Reveals Another Two Rules

As any NCIS viewer worth his or her salt knows, veteran agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) lives by a set of rules — some 51 or so in total. And this Tuesday at 8/7c, TVLine has learned, the boss man on TV’s most watched scripted series will share not one but two more of ’em.

Rules previously disclosed by the hit CBS drama have included “Never go anywhere without a knife” (No. 9), the particularly vexing “Never date a coworker” (No. 12), and, one of my favorites, “Never mess with a Marine’s coffee if you want to live” (No. 23).

Well, the next ones to be revealed in the Tony-centric flashback-filled episode “Baltimore” — and promptly added to the notebooks of the most fervent of fans — are Rules Nos. 5 and 35. And I’ve got a tiny hint as to which each of them says.

One of the words in Rule No. 5 is “good,” I have been told. Rule No. 35, meanwhile, features the word “watch.”

My guesses, right off the top of my head: “In a crisis, sometimes good is good enough,” and “Always wear a watch.”

Hit the comments to share your own bold guesses as to what new rules Gibbs is about to drop on us, and/or pass along your favorite of the Great White’s personal commandments!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    It has been too long since we learned a new rule! I cannot wait!

  2. Dai says:

    New rules!! Good!! Maybe #35 has to do something like “Always watch your back”…

  3. Clarissa says:

    I’m hoping it’s

    “And that’s why you always leave a note.”

    • Jason says:

      Does that sound like it has “good” or “watch” in it?? Jesus, Clarissa.

    • Ashley says:

      Or “And that’s why you don’t teach your son lessons”. Doesn’t have the words, I know, but wouldn’t it be great if Gibbs recycled one of those “Arrested Development” gems as a rule?

  4. Jason says:

    Does that sound like it has “good” or “watch” in it?? Geez, Clarissa.

  5. redreh says:

    YEEES. The rules rule. Bring ’em on!

  6. Lady K says:

    Personally, I am looking forward to the big stripe of red tape across Usama Bin Laden’s face on the wall of the most wanted. I wonder if they are going to incorporate that in the show, or if it will just appear?

    • Casey says:

      Brian Dietzen just tweeted the TVLine scoop that yes, they will add that digitally in one of the remaining episodes this season. Apparently, even he was surprised and hadn’t heard about it.

  7. Mel321 says:

    I’m just happy to get some NCIS news and a new show tonight. Can’t wait for Baltimore ! Whatever the the rules are will just be icing on the cake.

  8. Garnet_and_Gold47 says:

    I love your guess for rule #5. For #35 I would have to say “Always watch your 6.”

  9. massive dynamic says:

    #5 – it’s a good thing whenever the leader of a terrorist group is killed

    #35 – make sure you watch CBS every Tuesday evening

  10. thra says:

    Watches just don’t seem reliable enough to get a Gibbs Rule.

  11. thra says:

    If the rules come up during the flashback section, it would be a younger, harsher Gibbs and would be more like to be something like “Good enough is -never- good enough.”

  12. Meli says:

    I reckon it’s

    #5 – when you screw up- make good
    #35 – always watch your 6 and mine!

  13. Patrick K says:

    #5 – You don’t waste ‘good’

    #35 – Always watch the watchers

  14. don higginbotham says:

    according to 5-3-11 episode rule #5 you dont waste good rule #35 always watch the watchers

  15. Rochelle says:

    There should be a Rule saying Always Listen to Gibbs, He knows best
