"I think he is."
"But he'd have told us, McGee. He always tells us. In great detail."
McGee frowned. "Not always, Abby. Remember Jeanne."
"You don't think he's undercover again, do you?"
"No. Gibbs'd kill him."
"'Good morning." Ziva strode into the squad room.
"Hey, Ziva." McGee smiled at her.
"I bet Ziva knows," Abby said.
"If Tony is dating someone."
Ziva blinked. "Is not Tony always dating someone?"
"No, I mean seriously dating someone; seeing only her."
"This is Tony we are talking about?"
"Abby thinks he's behaving like he did when he was seeing Jeanne."
"He is," Abby said. "He's secretive; well not exactly secretive, but not open. And I saw him buying flowers."
"Tony sends all his girl-friends flowers, Abby, you know that."
Abby beamed at McGee. "Exactly!"
"He sends them flowers. But he was buying these himself." Suddenly she frowned and looked at Ziva. "It's not you, is it, Ziva? Because if so, that's cool, but –"
Ziva laughed. "Oh, no, Abby. It certainly is not me. Oh, wait!"
"You mean it is you?"
Ziva shook her head. "No of course not. It is just that . . . But, no, it could not be her."
"Ziva!" McGee and Abby yelled her name.
"Yes?" Ziva looked at them.
"Who are you talking about?"
"Maddie Tyler. Remember her? Kelly Gibbs's best-friend. She asked Gibbs for help. And Tony did save her life."
"What makes you think it's her, Ziva?"
"I recall over-hearing him say 'Maddie' to someone on the phone."
"Gibbs'll kill him."
"No, he will not."
"Ziva, DiNozzo dating Kelly's best-friend . . ."
She shook her head. "No, because he will not tell Gibbs and Gibbs will not ask."
"Don't ask, don't tell," Abby said quietly.
As one they changed the subject and began to talk about something else.
