Antonia: Dr. Lewis, what are you, some forensic psychologist?
Lewis: Yes, I study serial killers.
Antonia: Bet you'd love to interview me.
Lewis: Actually, no. I mean I do want to find out as much as I can about this case but, as a research subject, you don't interest me. No offence.
Antonia: You intrigue me.

Antonia: This is so exciting. I feel like one of the team right now.
Lewis: You shouldn't.
Antonia: Maybe I can replace Agent Morgan.

Antonia: I think I smell the cherry blossoms.
Rossi: Yeah, me too.
Antonia: You were never really going to transfer me, were you?
Rossi: No, but you knew that, didn't you?
Antonia: I hope they haven't changed my old cell.

We got what we wanted from her.

Lewis

Hotch: You sent the events of the last few days in motion for a reason.
Antonia: And you want me to tell you what it is. Well...you're going to have prove you've got a little bit more going on than a fancy title and nice suits to deserve an answer.
Hotch: When you were 14, you missed almost a year of school, due to an unspecified illness. During the same year, a 15 year old boy on a neighbouring farm was killed in a hunting accident. I think these two events were related. You weren't ill, you were pregnant. And the neighbor boy was the father of your child. Your father, the German minister, the authoritarian, punished you for breaking the rules. He made you have the baby at home, and he murdered your boyfriend.
Antonia: Go on.
Hotch: At first we profiled you as an extreme narcissist, but that's just a cover up. You're actually full of self-loathing, and every time you killed a runaway teen, you were killing yourself or your boyfriend for lacking discipline.

There's a storm coming, Agent Hotchner. And you're about to be swept away.

Antonia

Rossi: 29 years. 29 years you didn't tell me that I had a daughter.
Hayden: You're right.
Rossi: And when I found out, I called and texted you for a week straight, and never got one reply.
Hayden: You're right.
Rossi: You don't have anything better to say than "you're right"?
Hayden: No.

Rossi: You never gave me a chance to be a dad. Why?
Hayden: Because I always came second with you.
Rossi: That's not true.
Hayden: It is true, David. It was always about the job, and you made that very clear. The job came first. So where would that leave our child?
Rossi: Still, you could have given me a choice.
Hayden: And what would you have chosen?

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.

Criminal Minds Quotes

Thomas Merton once wrote "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone. We find it with another."

Reid

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.
