Reaching the 100th episode of a television show is a pretty big deal — and if you can believe it, Scott Bakula only recently got to bask in that joy.

"This is my first time to get to 100 [episodes]," Scott tells Rach about "NCIS: New Orleans" reaching the milestone.

What about "Quantum Leap," you ask? 97.

"'Star Trek Enterprise' had to have reached 100," you're probably saying to yourself. Nope — 98, the actor says.

Wild, right?!

So, naturally, as the 100th episode of "NCIS: New Orleans" was approaching, Scott felt a bit uneasy — especially because his colleagues were already talking about throwing a big party to celebrate.

"'Don't have it before we finish,'" Scott jokes he begged them. "'I have a bad feeling.'"

Sure enough, right before the episode started filming, Scott's makeup artist called him and asked him if he had heard about the looming Hurricane Gordon.

"There goes the 100," he thought at the time. "Not gonna happen."

Thankfully, he was wrong. Just look at those big smiles in front of that gorgeous cake!
