I am thinking of making my own set of Chris' Rules. But I am way to inconsistent to stick to them!
There are a total of 69 rules, and counting, but fans have yet to hear all of them. They’re revealed out of order, as Gibbs sees fit. And, considering there are two number 1 rules, it’s not far-fetched to say Gibbs might be winging it. Here’s a list of Agent Gibbs’ rules on NCIS, so far:
Gibbs’ Rule #1: Never let suspects sit together.
Gibbs’ Other Rule #1: Never screw over your partner.
Gibbs’ Rule #2: Always wear gloves at a crime scene.
Gibbs’ Rule #3: Never believe what you are told. Double check.
Gibbs’ Other Rule #3: Never be unreachable.
Gibbs’ Rule #4: Best way to keep a secret. Keep it to yourself. Second best, tell one other person—if you must. There is no third best.
Gibbs’ Rule #5: You don’t waste good.
Gibbs’ Rule #6: Never say you’re sorry.
