*disclaimer* If you don't know NCIS, this won't make any sense! Even as a young pup, Fillion began making his "rules". Rules for hockey, rules for beachball volleyball, rules for decorum during feeding and snacks. He follows his own rules to the letter, and apparently expects others to abide by them as well! The other night, at midnight snack time, they got their two cookies each. After devouring his, Benson started barking and bouncing. Fil nailed him on the back of the head, right between the ears so fast--it was the perfect sheltie head slap! I got a good laugh out of that one. So following the line of thinking--it's obvious that Benson is Dinozzo--young, headstrong, smart, irrepressible, and he never shuts up! Koko is Director Vance--standing above them on the sitting wall (balcony in the show), barking out orders, and seldom getting into field work. Do any of yours resemble TV characters?
