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.
JJ: NO.

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.

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

Kate

Rossi: Yesterday, when I saw that you were following me, I thought it had to be a coincidence. But by today, probably not.
Girl: It's a long story.
Rossi: Well I'm a writer, I hate the short ones. So what are you, a P.I.?
Girl: Yeah, you could call me that, sure.
Rossi: Who do you work for?
Girl: I can't say. My client's very secretive.
Rossi: Well you can't be the IRS, my accountant would have called.
Girl: Look---
Rossi: Can't be with the State Department. A spy would know better than to leave her target's dossier on the front seat.
Girl: Yeah, right.
Rossi: I know you don't work for my cigar guy because he makes all his deliveries straight to my door. So why don't you tell whoever it is that if they want to discuss something, they should get out of their sandbox and call me themselves.
Girl: Got it.
Rossi: Now, most people would ask for the coffee back. But, being a gentleman, c'est la vie. Oh, and get yourself an earpiece. Those things will give you brain cancer.

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future - John F. Kennedy.

Rossi

Kate: P.I. Maybe you've got an admirer.
Rossi: She had a file on me this thick.
Kate: You'd be surprised how much you can print off from Google. I'm sure it's nothing.
Rossi: Yeah, well I hope you're right. This is why I don't get remarried. I struck out three times. I'm better off just doing my job, writing my books and living alone.

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.

There are times when the mind is dealt such a blow that it hides itself in insanity. There are times when reality is nothing but pain, and to escape that pain the mind must leave reality behind. - Patrick Rothfuss
