Tate is a shipper term used to describe the possibility of a romantic relationship between NCIS Special Agents Anthony DiNozzo and Caitlin Todd.

In an interview, Executive Producer and creator of NCIS, Donald P. Bellisario revealed that if Kate hadn't died in the Season 2 finale episode, Twilight (episode), then she and Tony would have embarked on a relationship at some point in the series.

The "Tate" relationship was referenced again in the Season 9 episode, Life Before His Eyes (episode) where it was shown that in an alternative reality, Kate had managed to avoid being shot dead by Ari Haswari and had eventually gotten married to Tony with the two soon having a baby girl whom they named "Kelly", presumably after Gibbs's dead daughter.
