While most of the rules are for everyday use, Gibbs' rules 40-49 are considered emergency rules, to be invoked only in the most dire of circumstances. ("Rule Fifty-One") When Gibbs told Abby that rule 40 was in play, and Abby told Tony, he took it to mean that "something unspeakably bad is going down."How does Gibbs live his life?
"Gibbs lives his life by a set of rules that took root from the first day he met Shannon. Over time, Gibbs added to the rules.
