That's a great line! I love the "assisted suicide/flush him" comparison. I may have to steal that. Cheers!
A far as Sloane "retiring" to Afghanistan, it would not surprise me if she, too, were eventually "escorted" into the sweet bye-and-bye via an IED, shot by insurgents, what have you. NCIS loves to kill off its female characters off-screen (Jenny, Ziva, Breena, Mrs. Ducky's Mom, etc...). Agent Lee, however, went out with style when she told Gibbs to shoot her (and the bad guy). Now that's what I call Girl Balls. Ditto for Cassie Yates, even though nobody liked her.
