JJ: Looks like the media is scrambling for a soundbite from the local hero.

Morgan: It's a wonder he even realized he triggered the bomb.

Kate: Except you're not a hero, Allen. You're just a coward.
Allen: Then why did I kill all those people? Huh? You think you have all the answers. Why did I kill all those people?

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.

Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
