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


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.

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?

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."


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.
