Summary: Being in the spotlight isn't always necessary.
Gibbs let out a low chuckle as he saw the cardboard cutout of Tony standing beside the nightstand.
"How long does he plan on staying?" Gibbs asked the real thing.
"Figured I'd keep him around awhile if it deflects the head slaps. So how's the posterboy feeling?"
"Like I want to slug Leon for letting them use my photo without permission. Could have them change it…"
Tony got a thoughtful look on his face before responding.
"Nah. It would cheapen it. Plus, I'm kinda like Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc. Sulley gets the spotlight, but I'm always guarding his six."
