Summary: Ducky loses a bet.
"It's pink, Jethro."
"You actually went into a shop and bought this?"
"You didn't get Timothy to buy it on-line for you?"
"Yeah. Like I was going to tell McGee I wanted -"
"Quite. And I really have to wear it?"
"That was the bet. The bet you lost."
"Could I not, well . . ."
"Oh, no. You stay where you are."
"Yes, but, Jethro. I can think of a far better way to pay off the lost bet. Far, far, far better."
"I said - Ducky, don't. You know what. Ahhh, Duck."
"See, that's good, is it not?"
"You're not getting round me that way, Ducky. I mean it."
"Am I not? And there I was thinking . . . Oh, well, if I really cannot tempt you into . . . I suppose I had better fulfill the requirements of the bet, had I not?"
"Uh huh. Duck, what are you doing?"
"What does it look like I'm doing?"
"Taking your clothes off."
"How observant of you, my dear. No doubt that is what makes you such a fine Special Agent. Now, what do you think?"
"But . . . But . . . Duck!"
"Yes? Jethro, the bet was that I wear it. You did not stipulate exactly where I was to wear it, now did you?"
"Well, no, but I thought -"
"Did you now?"
"You sound slightly strained, my dear. Would you like me to . . . Now isn't that better?"
"You're not getting round me like - Ahhh."
"Am I not?"
"You know what's going to happen if you go on doing that?"
"I should hope I do after all these years. I will stop if you wish me to. Just say the word."
"Ducky. I . . . Oh, to hell with it. I didn't like the damn thing anyway. Come here."
