In the "Forced Entry" episode of 'NCIS', Agent Tony DiNozza made a rather personal admission......

Tony DiNozzo:
"I dated a woman who used to wear my police uniform
and make me call her Detective Sipowicz."

Within the reality of the Toobworld Dynamic, this isn't a Zonk reference to 'NYPD Blue', only to one of its characters. But Andy Sipowicz shares that same reality with Tony DiNozzo, so there had to be a reason why some woman would have Tony call her that.

We don't know who this woman was, but there have been plenty of women in Tony's life.

 We know this because he can't shut up about them.

From Wikipedia:
During the entire run of NCIS Tony consistently speaks at great length about women. He pursues girls on a regular basis, typically
indiscriminately, though he has shown an aversion to women who don't shave. Most of these relationships fail to progress past a certain point, and he has admitted to having commitment issues.

In season nine episode Secrets introduces his ex fiancee.

One of the women he was attracted to turned out to be a terrorist working with Ari Haswari; another to whom he was attracted, and kissed, turned out to be a pre-operative transsexual who had murdered one of Tony's co-workers. He once dated a social worker named Michelle who, after he ended their relationship, broke into his apartment and filled his closet with dog feces. He also had a short relationship with NCIS Special Agent Paula Cassidy. He also broke up with a Navy lieutenant (who had left her then-fiance for him), and shortly after Tony broke up with her, she posted his name, identity and information on a herpes alert website.

In a flashback in the episode "Baltimore" Tony mentions proposing to his long term girlfriend Wendy, also his high school music teacher, but he never got married.

That last one is key because it shows that Tony was not adverse to dating older women. And so I'm going to make the claim that Tony DiNozzo once dated Katie Sipowicz, the ex-wife of Detective Andy Sipowicz of the NYPD.

When Andy was deepest in his alcoholism, he became estranged not only from Katie but from his son Andy, Jr. They were out of his life for a long time once Katie and Andy divorced, and may have been out of the New York City area as well. It could be that they spent time in Philadelphia or later in Baltimore when Tony was working for those police departments back in the 1990's (spending about two years at each of them.)

Although about 19 years his senior, Katie could have taken Tony as her lover. (I don't think Tony was always chasing the runway model types. After all, that Wikipedia entry - always the bastion for Truth! - said that Tony pursued women indiscriminately, so on occasion he might have enjoyed the pleasure to be found with a full-figured older woman.)

Once she felt comfortable with him, Katie may have revealed her kinky side when it came to making love - by wearing Tony's police uniform. And that's why she had Tony call her "Detective Sipowicz" - she wasn't making a pop culture reference to some TV character. She was using her own last name, which she retained even after divorcing Andy Sipowicz.

They probably broke up when Tony was moving on to his next career move.  (Which is why I think the relationship happened while he was in Philadelphia, when both of them were younger and more impetuous.)

Otherwise, Tony could have left her when Katie stopped shaving her legs....

Dirty, dirty girl....
