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.

Reid

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.

Rossi

Rossi: Is this how it's going to go - all my friends dying off? First Aaron, then Harrison...now Jason. Disease is one thing but...murder?
Hotch: I hadn't talked to him in years.
Rossi: Me neither. How does that happen? Back in the day, I would have bet my life that we'd always be close. But maybe we never were. You know, it could be that after all these years I just re-wrote our history.

Reid: I know I'm not being very rational, and I know I haven't seen him in a really long time, but I think about him all the time. And I knew he was always out there, and now it just feels empty.
Rossi: Yeah. The time will past and slowly you'll forget how much it hurts. Maybe you'll find something else to fill that empty space.
Reid: I won't find something else.

Criminal Minds Quotes

Reid: Huh.
Morgan: What? You see something?
Reid: Encryption's a highly specialized skill set but it's fundamentally a mathematical process, which means the human process sometimes through technique can reveal where you learned it. I think I know where he learned how to do this.
Kate: Where?
Reid: Harvard. Which oddly enough isn't known for its advanced math program but it is known for one particular class. When you're good at math - good enough to get into Harvard - you take a math class called "Math 15". When you're better than that you take "Math 25", but when you're the best, the absolute best, you take "Math 55": Honors Advanced Calculus and Linear Algebra. Graduates are immediately employed by the U.S. Government because they're too dangerous to work anywhere else. More specifically, they're employed at the NSA.
