Reid: He surrendered.
Rossi: Ambulance is on its way.
Hotch: He surrendered? That doesn't make sense.
Rossi: We need to get you looked at.
Hotch: I'm fine.
Rossi: Hey! This is not a suggestion

Sleigh bells in April?


When one has not had a good father, one must create one - Friedrich Nietzsche


Brooks: I don't need no damned babysitter. You're enjoying this, aren't you?
Hotch: No I'm not.
Brooks: The hell you aren't. You're made because I've never forgiven you for what happened. And now this is payback.
Hotch: Roy this has nothing to do with the past.
Brooks: The hell it doesn't. It has everything to do with what we are. It's all we got. You, me and the sweet past.

Brooks: Happy Hoofers' Club. It's where they take you to a mall and let you walk around. Big deal, huh? Yeah. Bingo tournaments. Movie nights with popcorn.
Hotch: What's wrong with movie nights?
Brooks: It's a damned nursing home, that's what's wrong with it. I can go to the movies and chew popcorn by myself. I've been to these places before. They take you there to shrivel up and die.

I make a mistake - a change of clothes fixes that. You make a mistake, I lose my daughter.


Hotch: I think it's a good solution.
Brooks: Oh so you think it's a great solution. Sure. Given the fact that you conceived the idea. My brain may be checking out, but I'm not an idiot. Jessica told me a while ago that her promotion was in title only. And that song and that you two have been doing for my benefit..... You're giving her the extra money aren't you?

Brooks: He's all I've got left of Haley. I see her in his eyes, small things he does....
Hotch: I see it too.
Brooks: You and me, we're not good you know. I'll never forgive you for what happened.
Hotch: I wish you didn't feel that way.
Brooks: Oh don't be so understanding. For once, take the low road and tell me to take a hike.
Hotch: I think about what Haley would want for this family.
Brooks: Well I do too. She'd want to be alive still, and she'd want to be Jack's mom again.
Hotch: She wouldn't want us holding on to anger, or pointing fingers at each other.
Brooks: I'm pointing anyway. You'll be rid of me soon enough. Doctors tell me there'll come a day when I won't know who she is. Just a stranger. No anger, no pain. No regret. You know, this disease may not be a curse after all.

We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future - George Bernard Shaw.


Unsub: Everything okay?
Colleen: Yeah, it's a gift. He can fall asleep anywhere.

Kate: It takes guts and skill to snatch a whole family but you wouldn't know it by watching him.
Rossi: The higher the risk, the lower his heart rate - a true sociopath.

Garrett: So, our jet or yours?
Rossi: We'll flip for it.
