Kate: I just keep reminding myself it is just the mall.
JJ: I don't think parents are ever ready for their kids to grow up.
Kate: It feels like yesterday she was in diapers.
JJ: Teenagers. I don't know how my mom survived.
Kate: Mine either.

Markayla: What did you tell your folks?
Meg: The truth. Sort of. I told them we were meeting two guys from our biology class.
Markayla: This is the best study session I've ever had. They actually believed you?
Meg: Why wouldn't they? I couldn't tell them we were meeting some cute senior we met onine. They'd freak.

The most heroic word in all languages is revolution - Eugene V. Debs

Reid

JJ: Looks like the media is scrambling for a soundbite from the local hero.
Lex: I don't know what all the fuss is about. Anybody with half a right mind would have done the same thing.
Sarah: Well they didn't. You did.

Reporter: Wait. That's the family. They're leaving.
Kate: Sorry guys. Guess you're going to have to capitalize on someone else's trauma today.

Rossi: Einstein, huh?
Einstein: Bet you don't ever forget it.
Rossi: You're kind of young to be a forensic specialist aren't you?
Einstein: Finished medical school at 19, and then residency afterwards. My dad really wanted me to live up to the family name.

Morgan: It's a wonder he even realized he triggered the bomb.
Reid: Maybe he heard something when he stepped on the pedal.
Morgan: What, and knew not to move? I mean come on what's this guy got - a ex-paramilitary background we don't know about?
Reid: Brenda Archer's first husband Grant was military. Is it just me or do you think it's odd that Allen ended up marrying his best friend's wife?
Morgan: I don't know. Shared sorrow could build a bond.
Reid: JJ and Kate said the house is like a shine to the deceased.
Morgan: Well that would explain why he kept all his stuff out here. He feels like he's living in someone else's home. That kind of man would be desperate for recognition.

Einstein: That's what you guys do. You just talk a lot.
Morgan: Well there's also a lot of kicking down doors involved.
Einstein: Sure.

Hotch: Answer this - when the bomb went off at the coffee shop and you were directly across the street, why did you leave her there?
Kate: You would only do that if you knew that she wasn't in danger.
Hotch: Because you had planted the bomb.
Kate: But you didn't plan on the gas line rupturing, which actually put her in danger. You just wanted to be a hero.
Hotch: Like Grant.
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?

Rossi: I can't believe you got the mayor to do this.
Hotch: Once we apprehend this guy, it will all have been his idea.
Rossi: Ahhh. Now it makes sense.
Hotch: Thank you for agreeing to help us.
Mayor: I just hope you're right. Otherwise I'm going to look bad. And I'll make sure you do too.
Rossi: I now I remember why I didn't go into politics.

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost - Arthur Ashe.

Rossi: Are you ever going to finish this game?
Reid: It's a tough one. You know playing with yourself can be difficult.
Rossi: Playing a ghost even more so.

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.

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."
