Gibbs-isms from the show NCIS.
(The Reason why some numbers repeat:Gibbs lives his life by a set of rules that took root from the first day he met Shannon. Over time, Gibbs added to the rules. When he joined NIS, Mike Franks told him he didn't need dozens of different rules to be an agent... just three 'golden rules.' And this is why we have double ups on rules #1 and #3. Three of them are Gibbs' rules; three of them are Mike Franks rules. We are still to reveal the double-up on rule #2. And it's up to the fans to guess which of the rules were Mike Franks three golden rules and which were Gibbs'.
