Anyway, I'm fulfilling two of capecodgirl's requests. She wanted Kate/McGee, with "Kate trying to justify the whole 'probie' harassment thing", and the whole team and a bowl of spiked eggnog. The first one didn't go where I wanted it to, but I think it works.
"You know, maybe we're being too hard on him."
Tony gave Kate a look of disbelief. "Come on, Kate! It's a tradition."
"It's hazing, and I don't think it's fun anymore." Kate frowned and crossed her arms.
"Jeez, Kate, what's gotten into you?"
"McGee's proven he can be a productive member of the team, and I think the trial period should be over."
"What, and I haven't?"
"That's not what I said."
"But it's what you meant."
"No, it wasn't!" Kate sighed. "Look, Tony, I know I was ready to shoot you by this point. How much worse do you think it is for McGee? I mean, there are two of us now."
Tony rolled his eyes. "Whatever, Kate. You know, I think you've got a crush on the little..."
"Tony! I do not!"
An evil grin spread over Tony's features. "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
"How much rum did you put in the eggnog?"
"Me? I didn't put any in there."
"I think McGee did it."
"Remind me to give him a raise."
"I think... you already have."
"What? 'S obviously the truth, Timmy."
"How much eggnog have you had?"
"Uh... four glasses. Why?"
"Because that sounds like something Tony would say."
"Watch it, Probie."
"Like Kate said, it's obviously the truth."
"Don't call me that."
"Timmy, Timmy, Timmy..."
"Would you two stop--"
"Wow. Would you look at that? McGee found a way to shut Tony up for once."
