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.”
