JJ: Nothing's wrong. I'm fine.
Reid: You're not fine. You're obviously displaying signs of post traumatic stress disorder, which absolutely makes sense. We're coming up on a year since your abduction and torture and anniversary dates have a power all their own. Not to mention the fact that seasonal weather changes bring back smells that you probably associate with the initial event.

All I'm saying is...what you're going through is entirely textbook.


JJ: Stop it. Stop it. Stop doing that. Stop....being you.
Reid: I can't help it.
JJ: Yes, you can. You can. You think you know what's going on but you don't.
Reid: Well then explain it to me JJ. Because all I know is my friend is hurting and when I see her in pain I want to make it stop.

JJ: The Humvee. Was that in the file?
Reid: You almost caught him, he set an IED to take your convoy. I know you were wounded---
JJ: I was pregnant. You see, if I had never gotten involved, Nadia and her daughter would still be alive. And Henry would have a little....I can't let this go. I can't. What's the word for that, Spence?
Reid: I don't know.
JJ: This stays between us.

JJ: I have nothing left. You've taken everything.
Askari: Oh Jennifer. There is so much more I'm going to take. First, I will take your sleep. Then, your smile. I won't let you feel safe anywhere. So I'll take your job. And finally, I will transform you so that your husband and son won't recognize you anymore.
JJ: You can't. I won't let you.
Askari: You already are. Think about the risk you took at that freezer. You had no idea that the gas would ignore or not. It was dumb luck that you got out of there alive. Either you will try that again and I'll watch you kill yourself. Or you will quit and I'll watch you wither and fade. Either way, I win.
JJ: No.
Askari: Yes.

Rossi: I don't get it. Why didn't you say anything?
Hotch: It didn't come up.
Rossi: Hello? We're not talking about switching to decaf. You and Beth broke up.
Hotch: Dave--
Rossi: I've got a 20 year old bottle of scotch we've could've drowned your sorrows in.

Rossi: Look, there's this little jazz club in Dupont Circle I plan to go to on Saturday night. You're coming with me.
Hotch: I don't know.
Rossi: This isn't just about you, Aaron. I'm, shall we say, intrigued by the in-house jazz singer there, and you will be my wing man.
Hotch: I can't wait.

Morgan: Let me guess. The gun used to shoot the couple belong to the security guard.
Garcia: Get your mug out, 'cause coffee is for closers.

Have you ever looked death in the eye? 'Cause I have. And I've seen the Grim Reaper staring right back at me.


Remove my sin and I will be clean. Wash me and I will be white than snow - Psalm 51


Benton: I would kill myself right now if it would bring Miriam back.
Oren: Maybe it will. You should give it a try.

Nothing can drive one closer to his own insanity than a haunting memory refusing its own death - Darnell Ford
