Zivaisms: Because we love her English idioms #2





Credit

-----------------








Banner and avis by razzlephrat

-----------------

Thought it would be fun to start a list similar to the Tony movie references thread, only with all the idioms Ziva has mixed up. Anyone have a better idea for a thread title?

My all-time favorite is when she told Tony to stop "googling" her when they were in LA in season 5.

By popular demand, I will start listing them here:


"I feel like a donkey's butt." (horse's ass) - 3x04 Silver War
"You might want to do something about your hair... it's sticking up like a porcuswine , no porcupig..." (porcupine) - 3x04 Silver War
"I'm braless." (barless) - 3x12 Boxed In
"Counting your riches, King Cole?" (King Midas) - 3x12 Boxed In
"Mind if I take a bat nap?" (cat nap) - 3x17 Ravenous
"It'll be like trying to find a pin in the haystack." (needle in a haystack) - 3x17 Ravenous
"I don't want him to think I'm sleazy." (easy) - 3x17 Ravenous
"Kody was covering his plates." (bases) - 3x18 Bait
"I think Tony was jerking your brain." (chain) - 3x19 Iced
"Their lawyer's going to try to use her bad taste in men to impregnate her credibility." (impugn) - 3x21 Bloodbath
"Ducky, drip it!" (drop it or zip it) - 3x23 Hiatus: Part I
"Argh, American idioms drive me up the hall!" (wall) - 3x23 Hiatus: Part I

"You look run down." - 4x08 Once a hero
"Cut the man some slacks." (slack) - 4x10 Smoked
"It's like shooting fish in a pond." (in a barrel) - 4x15 Friends and Lovers
"Why haven't you breasted them?" (busted them) - 4x15 Friends & Lovers
"McGee, you look like you saw a goat." (ghost) - 4x20 Cover Story

"I am having the same problem as McGee had with Capt. Walsh. The Pentagon is rock-walling me." (stone-walling) - 5x05 Leap of Faith
"What's a contraption?" (contraction) - 5x08 Designated Target
"The Jack she is with is gross." (John) - 5x12 Stakeout
"Did you get up on the wrong bed?" (wrong side of the bed) - 5x13 Dog Tags
"Once in a blue lagoon." (blue moon) - 5x14 Internal Affairs

"You are such a control geek." (freak) - 6x03 Capitol Offense
"No wonder he's keeping his cards so close to his breasts." (chest) - 6x05 Nine Lives
"We canvassed the area. No one is talking. There is a smurf war." (turf war) - 6x15 Deliverance
"You did not change when your books made you plush." (?) - 6x17 South by Southwest

"He is full of salami." (bolgna) - 7x04 Good Cop, Bad Cop

You have to love her idioms!

P.S. I see 4 icons that have been deleted and therefore no longer viewable. The 4 between "Ducky- Drip it!" and "Mind if I take a bat nap? Zivaism:#218"

Thanks for the new thread!

Okay, I see if I can find the right ones.

Could you help me out in telling me the episodes to the idioms? I just added the two Silver War ones, don't know the episodes to the rest.


EDIT:

Better?

I don't know if this really counts, but in an episode McGee said something like "I wish I could've been a fly on the wall in that room" and Ziva didn't get what he meant so said, "Why, so you could buzz around and annoy?"

Oh, I think Ziva's idioms are probably one of the greatest parts about her character!

Thanks Andie.

Okay, that second batch is now complete with episode and title. (hope I didn't make any mistakes)

Now a question for everyone: Should I put the idioms in bolt, the episode number/title or nothing at all?

Go have a look and tell me.

You're welcome

I kinda like the idioms in bold and the episode normal.

I agree- Idioms in bold, episodes normal I think it makes the quote stand out and become more significant to the viewer.

Of course, Ron.

Okay, I'll change it that way.

Anyone want to number the episodes in the first batch of quotes, without me needing to look them up?
