Every Tuesday, 20 million viewers tune in to spend an hour with CBS’s #1 drama, “NCIS.” Cast members Mark Harmon, Cote de Pablo, Michael Weatherly, and Pauley Perrette stopped by The Grove and chatted about all the hot topics with Mario Lopez, and were greeted by hundreds of loyal fans.

The first question on everyone’s mind seemed to be the hookup between Ziva and Tony. Cote de Pablo, who plays Ziva, told Mario, “I love him [Tony], what can I say… not that way, come on.” Pablo believes the secret to their success on the show is because “we’re really comfortable.” Weatherly added, “It’s been a blessing and a real great gift.”

Lopez mentioned the term “Ziva-isms,” in which Cote’s character, who speaks five different languages, tends to get common phrases and sayings all wrong. Pauley said, “The best is ‘bah humbug’ because she didn’t understand it was funny. We were just cracking up and saying [to Cote], ‘No, just keep saying it.'”

Pablo replied, “You know, I make mistakes all the time as it is. These guys are always saying, ‘That’s not the way it is, Cote.'”

Michael Weatherly, who plays Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo, is a streetwise former homicide detective who loves to quote movies. “Extra” came up with a little pop quiz for the actor and asked him how well he knows his movies. He nailed all three questions correctly with the last one being, “Which actress played Alice in ‘Almost Famous’?” Weatherly replied, “Pauley Perrette. I almost said Kate Hudson.”

Mark Harmon, who plays Leroy Jethro Gibbs, discussed all the rules by which his character lives. If they are not obeyed, the consequence is a slap to the back of the head. “There’s more rules every year, 51 I think, at the moment. If the show keeps going, I assume the rules will keep going,” Harmon explained. A few memorable rules include: “Never date a co-worker,” (rule #12) and “Never, ever interrupt Gibbs in interrogation. (rule #22).”

When Mario asked what the romantic status was between Abby Sciuto, played by Pauley Perrette, and Sean Murray’s character Timothy McGee, Perrette wisely said, “If you are interested in that, do not miss anything in the remaining episodes of the season! Things are heating up all over ‘NCIS.'”

Executive producer Gary Glassberg calls the 8th season finale a must-watch. “The world of ‘NCIS’ will be rocked. It’s more of an exciting thing, an emotional thing and I think fans are gonna enjoy it a lot,” Glassberg revealed.

The dramatic season will conclude with a serial-killer plot, airing Tuesday, May 17 on CBS.
