I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain - James Baldwin

JJ: Maybe victim zero was a junkie who got clean and rejected the Unsub.
Rossi: Mmmm.
JJ: Or maybe she fell off the wagon and he was furious because he worked to nurse her back to health.
Rossi: Mm hm.
JJ: Or maybe she was abducted by aliens.
Rossi: Yeah. Maybe.
JJ: Okay, this ends now.

JJ: Wait. Is that...?
Rossi: Hayden Montgomery. Ex-wife #2.

JJ: You told me what you were like, back then. Nothing came between you and the job.
Rossi: Yeah, but I might have put it on hold, if it meant I got the chance to raise a daughter like Joy.
JJ: Well, yeah, it's easy to say that now, because you know who Joy turned out to be. But thirty years ago....would you have really put your career on hold for diapers, and teething and all night crying fits? Look, Hayden had to make a call, and maybe it was the wrong call, but...don't pretend like you don't understand why she made it. You know I say this out of love, right?
Rossi: Yeah, I do. Thanks.

Unsub: Are you ready for phase two?
Danielle: Are you going to keep hurting me?
Unsub: No. Never. Never again. Never again. [He begins unwrapping her bandages.] It's okay. Almost there. You're beautiful, Sarah.

Danielle: Who is Sarah?
Unsub: You are. This is your room. We decorated it together for when you were ready to move in with me.

Since loves grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul - St. Augustine.

Mark: None of it's your fault, you know that. Baby you can't go on like this. You need your sleep.
Prentiss: I'll be fine.
Mark: Yeah, I know. That's what you keep saying.

JJ: You ready to turn that page?
Reid: I haven't finished it yet.
JJ: You miss him, huh?

Prentiss: Good people died trying to catch this guy, Hotch. I need your help.
Hotch: Okay, we're somewhere over Texas right now. How soon can you meet us in New York?
Prentiss: I'm already on my way.

Originality is nothing but judicious imitation - Voltaire.

Unsub: It's not polite to stare, you know. You bored?
Boy: [nods]
Unsub: Yeah, me too. It's a long ride.

Criminal Minds Quotes

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.

Don't you know there comes a midnight hour when everyone has to take off his mask - Soren Kierkegaard.
