Unsub: Did you get your medicine?
Estelle: This morning. I'm sorry.
Unsub: About what?
Estelle: All those bad years I put you and mom through. The drugs. Everything.
Unsub: It's in the past. I just wish your mother was here to see you now. The real you.

Joy: Dad! Wow, I really need to re-educate you about this dad business.
Rossi: What are you doing here?
Joy: There are times when family should be together. And this seemed like one of those times.
Rossi: How did you know to find me here. L.A.'s a big city.
Joy: Remember that "find your friend" app I put on your cell phone? It put you directly in front of New Directions for Veterans.
Rossi: Well I'm glad you came. It's nice to see your face.

Thomas Scott: This is more than what I was expecting.
Rossi: Every Marine is entitled to a funeral with full honors. You just have to ask. Plus a couple of three-stars from my cigar club in D.C. wanted to fly in to be part of this.

As life runs on, the road grows strange with faces new. And near the end, the milestones into headstones change, 'neath every one a friend - James Russell Lowell


Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often we call a man cold when he is only sad - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Hotch: How many boats are there on Lake Meade?
Reid: 1,908
Kate: Come on. You just know that?
Reid: Yeah. There are 1,908 boats on lake Mead.
Kate: Where'd you get that number?
Reid: Based upon the population density of the area, I estimated.
Kate: You guessed. I mean, is this guy really a genius or does he just say things with authority and we all believe him?
Morgan: Thank you. Ten years! It took ten years for someone to finally have my back. All right Einstein - she just called you out. Bring it!
Reid: Look it up!
Rossi: I am. And the kid's right.
Reid: I accept your apology. Blow it up.
Morgan: Never.

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.
