[Sam and Callen are on duty in the car – Sam is enjoying jazz fusion playing on radio – Obviously Callen is less pleased: he sighs; glances at his buddy, thinks he’s asleep and wants to change the radio program]
SAM: You’re not changing that.
CALLEN: How can you listen to this?
SAM: Why can’t you appreciate a little improvisational jazz?
CALLEN: Why can’t they all learn to play the same song?
SAM: It’s called fusion.
CALLEN: Yeah, confusion.
[Callen’s phone is chirping.]
SAM: That’s the Agent Needs Assistance Alert.
[Callen checks his screen]
CALLEN: It’s Hetty.
[The engine starts at once]
[Kensi is wearing hastily her shoes, grabs her bag – a topless man on a couch observes her incredulously]
MAN: You just gonna run out of here?
KENSI: I’m sorry. I’m on call.
MAN: I thought you said you were a dental hygienist.
KENSI: I am. It’s a dental emergency.
[She steps backwards and hits a lamp]
KENSI: Oh… huh. It’s, it’s just, uh, teeth missing, tons of blood. I will call you.
[The gut waves a goodbye as she opens the door. The door closes, she’s gone]
[Kensi reaches the outside of the building just in time to get into Deeks’car]
KENSI: Is this a legit alert?
DEEKS: Sounds like it.
[She throws he gear on the back seat and hits Deeks’head]
DEEKS: You, uh, you missed a button.
[He points at her chest]
KENSI: Oh, well, you heard the guy. He was this close from giving up his partner. I had him eating out of my hand.
DEEKS: How was that?
KENSI: Just drive.
[Sam’s car. Callen is on phone]
CALLEN: What do we know, Eric?
[NCIS office. Eric is downstairs, heading to the OPS]
ERIC: Hetty activated her phone’s distress code. I tried to reach her in case it was a false alarm, but she’s not answering any of her numbers.
[OPS center. Nell is with a guy in front of the main screen]
NELL: I want feeds from every traffic and surveillance cam in a half-mile radius for the past three hours.
GUY: You got it.
[Eric joins her]
NELL: Signal’s coming from the boatshed but someone’s disabled our eyes inside.
ERIC: What about the teleconference camera or her cell phone?
NELL: Teleconference has been unplugged. This is her cell phone.
[A black screen – and only red letters flashing: “AGENT NEEDS ASSISTANCE”]
[They exchange a worried look]
NELL: We’re blind.
