Spoilers for 'NCIS' Season 17 Episode 19 'Blarney'

On the latest episode of 'NCIS' Season 17, the team gets really invested in the concept of commitment. The official synopsis for Episode 19 titled 'Blarney' had teased, "Kasie and Jimmy are held hostage in a diner after a jewelry store robbery goes awry. They attempt to keep the other customers safe from the thieves." In their attempt to ensure the safety of the other civilian hostages, Kasie and Palmer show incredible bravery, quick thinking, and, of course, a level of commitment that does not go uncredited throughout the episode.

In fact, there are four distinct moments in the almost hour-long installment, where a team member or the other remarked, "That's commitment." Of course, fans picked up on that and went crazy as usual, quipping how it's anything but.

Set around St. Patrick's Day, the episode saw Kasie and Palmer decide to indulge in some breakfast and that's when all hell breaks loose as a mafia family of sorts takes the customers hostage. While Jimmy and Kasie try to do their best to keep their cool and help the hostages, we saw seasoned experience in both of them which made for an entertaining watch in this episode. At the end of the day, the two experts were able to stall the hostage situation long enough for Gibbs to come in and make the arrests. As Jimmy and Kaise earned their due praise from Vance and Gibbs, the team couldn't help but marvel at their level of commitment throughout the crisis. 

So when the official 'NCIS' twitter account shared a few gifs of the team marveling at Kasie and Palmer's commitment, the fandom had to share their opinions on the kind of commitment they showed. It started with a fan noting just how many times this commitment was addressed, by tweeting: "I'm starting to wonder if there should be a drinking game for this — take a shot every time someone says, 'That's commitment'."

Another fan just remarked on the humor of it all, writing: "I know the situation is serious but the repeated reference to their 'commitment' has me in splits."

Noting how this commitment applies in the current circumstances the entire planet is dealing with, a fan even shared: "You did an amazing job with the writing of tonight’s episode sir. Commitment, that’s the word we all need to have right now to help Flatten the Curve!"

But circling back to the episode, another fan also gushed about agents Timothee McGee and Leon Vance's commitment to solving cases, sharing, "Don’t you just love their connection & commitment to the case?"

'NCIS' Season 17 airs on Tuesdays at 8pm only on CBS.
