Decidedly Deeks: M as in Music


Deeks: Eric, I need you to run a plate for me. 2, S as in Slayer, M as in Metallica, A as in Anthrax, 5-6-4, P as in uh, parsnip.
Eric: Parsnip? Your lettering system is Heavy Metal bands, and you’re giving me a root vegetable for P?
Deeks: I don’t know, man. I drew a blank.
Eric: Pantera? Hello.
Deeks: Oh. Cowboys from Hell. What was I thinking?

    Thin Lizzy

    I did that once and couldn’t remember the actual Charlie Tango Echo stuff… and when I came to the letter “D” I stuttered and then finally announced “You know D like doorknob!!”

    I noticed Kensi using the lettering system in an episode I was rewatching the other day, reading out the number plate of a car they found. It’s not often we hear it on the show.
