"Have you ever been in love, Ziva?"
"I am not certain what you mean by love, Abby. However, yes, I have."
"And were you alike?"
Ziva laughed. "Not in the slightest."
Abby sighed. "See, that's my problem."
"We're too alike. We like the same things. We talk the same language. We're . . . We're kindred spirits. And that never works."
"Does it not?"
"No. At least . . . I love him, but . . . I'm so wrong for him. He needs someone who -"
"Will love him for who he is. Abby, Tim loves you; you know that. It is clear to see."
"I don't want to hurt him."
Ziva was silent for a moment. Then she said, "I believe you are doing that anyway."
"What? What do you mean, Ziva?" Abby demanded, glaring at Ziva.
Ziva stood her ground. "He, to use a cliché, gave you his heart a long time ago, did he not?"
It was Abby's turn to be silent.
Finally she said, her voice quiet, "Yes."
"Then stop searching for what you already have. Take a chance Abby, give Tim your heart. After all, tomorrow is Valentine's Day." And with those words, Ziva turned on her heel and left Abby's lab.
