Hotch: Axelrod asked for my help.

The enemy is within the gates; it is with our own luxury, our own folly, our own criminality that we have to contend - Marcus Tullius Cicer


Well if you ask me, the NSA's got it easy. All they do is monitor net-wise, but when it comes to putting away the bad guys, you and I have to do all the dirty work. Isn't that right?


Lewis: We got an anonymous tip that somebody was skimming off the receipts, so we're just going to need to take a quick look at your books.
Bartender: Oh, hold on. I thought you were interested in a missing person.
JJ: We are. But the FBI also handles federal tax violations.
Lewis: I mean you have books, right? Cause if you don't have books we're going to have to shut this place down.
Bartender: Can I see that photo again?
JJ: Oh. This one.
Bartender: Okay, yeah, you know what? I think I remember her now.

Graff: Makes you all wonder, doesn't it?
Hotch: About what?
Graff: If what we're doing really matters. In the end we're all just government employees, aren't we? After we're gone someone will take our place, and criminals replace the old.
Hotch: Does it make you want to give it all up for a different life?
Graff: I know why you're really here.

Sarah: John?
Unsub: Didn't kill me. [Pulls wig off and John's severed face falls to the ground]
Sarah: [screams]

Morgan: Hey Rossi. Where is Hotch and Garcia? Thought we had a case?
Rossi: We do, but they're behind closed doors.
JJ: Is this about the network of hit men?
Rossi: Yeah.
Lewis: Any update?
Rossi: Nothing yet but Hotch has pulled out all the stops.
JJ: How's she doing?
Morgan: She's got four hit men targeting her. She's a little rattled.
Rossi: Yeah, I heard something about witness protection....
Lewis: Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Garcia: For how long?
Hotch: Until we can produce a viable lead, you'll be here, and an agent will be assigned to you until further notice.
Garcia: This is horrible.
Hotch: Witness protection wanted to move you to another state. I convinced them you'd be safer here.

You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body. But you will never imprison my mind - Mahatma Gandhi.
