I love Ducky! He is Gibbs' anchor. He's the one all feel comfortable going to with deeper problems. His rambling and getting lost is like a lot of people I've met. The body dissections are less gory than on a lot of similar shows. We need the autopsy info for the case to go forward and I like it presented in Ducky's manner. Otherwise, it'd be done on the computer view screen with the trio taking turns discussing it, which has a nice amount to it now, but adding to it would be too much. My only negative is that I REALLY wish Ducky and Gibbs would show more respect to Palmer, partly for Palmer, but mainly because it is a huge blot on Ducky's and Gibbs' character. When Palmer was a rookie, it was okay, but he's far beyond Rookie now.
