Abby Sciuto NCIS
Abigail "Abby" Sciuto, portrayed by Pauley Perrette, is a forensic specialist with NCIS. As indicated in the episode Seadog, she is the child of deaf parents. She is known for her gothic style of dress and addiction to the fictional, high-caffeine beverage "Caf-Pow".Abby had a brief sexual relationship with Special Agent McGee, as seen in the episode "Reveille" in season one, which ended with the two remaining friends. She is the most active and affectionate person of the team, often hugging everyone and talking fast, though she can be easily distracted. She is one of the few who can talk to Gibbs freely, and he often buys her Caf-Pow, and has been described as "the happiest goth you will ever meet".
She and Gibbs are both fluent in sign language. She has a stuffed farting hippopotamus named Bert that often appears in the show.
Jethro is a Navy drug detecting dog from season 5 episode Dog Tags. Named after Gibbs by Abby for being "handsome and quiet". He was framed for murder of a petty officer. Abby proves Jethro's innocence and forces McGee to adopt him, much to his dismay. (Jethro attacked him earlier in the episode.) Abby would have been Jethro (a.k.a. Butch) allowed by the director, however Abby's landlord would not shelter Jethro in Abby's apartment, thus she insists on McGee taking Jethro.
Abby's hobbies include a bowling league with nuns, helping build homes for the needy, and playing computer games. She also sleeps in a coffin and is, according to DiNozzo, "the happiest goth you will ever meet."
