Rossi: I don't get it. Why didn't you say anything?
Hotch: It didn't come up.
Rossi: Hello? We're not talking about switching to decaf. You and Beth broke up.
Hotch: Dave--
Rossi: I've got a 20 year old bottle of scotch we've could've drowned your sorrows in.

Rossi: Look, there's this little jazz club in Dupont Circle I plan to go to on Saturday night. You're coming with me.
Hotch: I don't know.
Rossi: This isn't just about you, Aaron. I'm, shall we say, intrigued by the in-house jazz singer there, and you will be my wing man.
Hotch: I can't wait.

Morgan: Let me guess. The gun used to shoot the couple belong to the security guard.
Garcia: Get your mug out, 'cause coffee is for closers.

Have you ever looked death in the eye? 'Cause I have. And I've seen the Grim Reaper staring right back at me.


Remove my sin and I will be clean. Wash me and I will be white than snow - Psalm 51


Benton: I would kill myself right now if it would bring Miriam back.
Oren: Maybe it will. You should give it a try.

Rossi: Yesterday, when I saw that you were following me, I thought it had to be a coincidence. But by today, probably not.
Girl: It's a long story.
Rossi: Well I'm a writer, I hate the short ones. So what are you, a P.I.?
Girl: Yeah, you could call me that, sure.
Rossi: Who do you work for?
Girl: I can't say. My client's very secretive.
Rossi: Well you can't be the IRS, my accountant would have called.
Girl: Look---
Rossi: Can't be with the State Department. A spy would know better than to leave her target's dossier on the front seat.
Girl: Yeah, right.
Rossi: I know you don't work for my cigar guy because he makes all his deliveries straight to my door. So why don't you tell whoever it is that if they want to discuss something, they should get out of their sandbox and call me themselves.
Girl: Got it.
Rossi: Now, most people would ask for the coffee back. But, being a gentleman, c'est la vie. Oh, and get yourself an earpiece. Those things will give you brain cancer.

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future - John F. Kennedy.


Kate: P.I. Maybe you've got an admirer.
Rossi: She had a file on me this thick.
Kate: You'd be surprised how much you can print off from Google. I'm sure it's nothing.
Rossi: Yeah, well I hope you're right. This is why I don't get remarried. I struck out three times. I'm better off just doing my job, writing my books and living alone.

Michael: You weren't home last night. Now your boss is dead. Did you hurt her?
Ellen: No.
Michael: So that's - what - a coincidence? What did you do? Where did you get that bruise? I can't help you unless you're honest with me.
Ellen: Oh Michael. I killed them.
Michael: Why?
Ellen: I don't know. I don't know. I just did it. I tried to stop and I can't.

Joy: My mom is Hayden Montgomery. You married her in '84 in Paris.
Rossi: I know who Hayden is.
Joy: She was a diplomat, you were on temporary duty with the FBI.
Rossi: Hayden would have told me if she was pregnant.
Joy: My stepdad told me about you when he was dying of cancer. And I forced my mom to finally come clean.
Rossi: How can I believe you? First you tell me you're a P.I. and now this?
Joy: Okay I was scared. Look you can even call my mom, she's still in Paris.

Criminal Minds Quotes

The soul that has conceived one wickedness can nurse no good thereafter - Sophocles


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.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
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.
