Summary: Missing scene from Swan Song. An awkward conversation.
“So how’s that FBI friend of yours doing?”
Gibbs kept his eyes on the road. He’d rushed Franks out the door quickly, but there was probably enough evidence around the house to give the game away.
“You know, Probie, some of us get by with a sock and a tube of Vaseline.”
“Some of us don’t want to. Not anymore.”
That managed to shut up the old goat, if only temporarily.
“Gets you through the nights?” Franks muttered after a few minutes, clearly embarrassed, but also concerned.
“And the days. Now, can we go catch this damn killer?”
