Violet: Daddy?
Tom: Remember what I told you, if anybody ever found us. Daddy's the only one that loves you.

Tom: Ahhh. My wrist, my wrist!
Morgan: Oh, am I hurting you?
Tom: Yes!
Morgan [viciously tightening the handcuffs]: Oh, I'm sorry.
Tom: OWWWW!!
Morgan: Shut up.

Tom: I gave them a good life. They were clothed, fed.
Hotch: You repeatedly raped and tortured them.
Tom: Children need discipline.

Tom: Listen to me. The only reason I haven't asked for a lawyer yet is because I hate those lying sons of bitches. Now you either give me a damned deal right now or I ain't saying boo.
Hotch: What do you want?
Tom: That's better. I want to do my time in minimum security. One of those places where they send the white collar guys, with the TVs and the gyms. No life sentence. I won't die in there.

Rossi: These are her real parents. And that gentleman right there is her real daddy.
Tom: She knows who her real daddy is. Daddy is the only one who loves you. Isn't that right, Violet?
Amelia: No. My name is Amelia. Amelia. Amelia.

Hotch: Stand up. We found them both, alive.
Rossi: Too bad you took that deal off the table. You'd be on your way to Club Fed right about now. Yeah, but don't you worry. You're going to make a lot of friends. They're going to love you out in the yard.

Flora: You're my son. Mother will love and accept you no matter what.
Unsub: No matter what.
Flora: No matter what.

The heart of the mother is a deep abyss, at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness - Honore de Balzac


I can't respect any woman who tries to come between a mother and her child.


Chloe: Wait, she told you to stop taking your pills? And you listened?
Unsub: Of course I listened. She's my mother.
Chloe: You've only known her a couple of months. It's not her place, Randy. First it's your meds and then it's your're not obligated to spend every waking moment with her. Can't you see she's hurting you?
Unsub: I said stop!
Chloe: Randy, what's wrong with you? This is the same woman that abandoned you.
Unsub: She did not....[grabs her by the throat] ...abandon me. I'm starting to think maybe mother was right about you.

Unsub: I want to show you something.
Flora: What is it?
Unsub: You'll see. [shows her pictures of the murdered real estate agent] What do you think?
Flora: Honey, it's perfect!

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.
