All sins tend to be addictive. And a terminal point of addiction is damnation - W. H. Auden


Rossi: I like it strong. How about you?
Montoya: Hot and fresh.
Rossi: Really? Because I kind of pegged you as a single malt kind of guy. Look, Chief. We both know that if your judgement is compromised, it doesn't do us any good. In fact quite the opposite. The last thing your town needs is for its Chief of Police to be caught drinking on the job. Now I know you've buried a lot of good people; people who you were supposed to protect. But the ones who are still here need you now more than ever. So, why don't you go home, drink some real coffee and dry up. And come back fresh. You can help us catch these guys.

Wade: Well you sure are some kind of tall drink of water, ain't ya? I usually don't even like your kind.
Hotch: Shut up.

Tammy: I loved you.
Mason: I loved you too.
Tammy: No you didn't, because you would have stopped. All you cared about was getting high.

Hotch: I had a call from the warden at ADX Florence in Colorado. Giuseppe Montolo has refused our latest request to talk to him. He told the warden to tell us he was too busy.
Garcia: He's a hit man in prison, how busy can he be?
Morgan: He's playing us. The only leverage he has is the list of twelve potential victims targeted by a network of hit men. As long as he keeps the list of the "Dirty Dozen" close to his vest, he keeps us on the hook.
Hotch: Well that may be. We still have to treat this as a dead end. Have you found anything to help us identify who the potential targets are?
Garcia: Sir I've been working all my channels 24/7, shaking every digital tree. Nothing yet.

And think not that you can direct the course of love; for love that finds you worthy directs your course - Khalil Gibran, The Prophet


Ryan: You know there's nothing going on between me and your sister. It's all an act so I can be closer to you.
Dana: Really? You promise?
Ryan: Have I ever lied to you? You know who the real threat to our love is....and what you have to do.

Dana: I don't think I can do it.
Ryan: You did it before.
Dana: I know, but I....
Ryan: You saw how she was flirting with me, touching my arm, begging me to come for a drink.
Dana: Maybe she was just being nice.
Ryan: No, she's a slut! She wants me in her bed.

Reid: I'm thinking the unsub bit Ashley's nails.
Medical Examiner: I've seen some freaky stuff in my day but never this.
Reid: He most likely has some sort of mental disorder.
Medical Examiner: I'll say.

Reid: When Derek Morgan says "I do" it'll be a national day of mourning for single women everywhere.
Rossi: Just don't elope.
Lewis: Wow. Sounds like there's a story there.
Hotch: There is.
Rossi: I married the third ex-Mrs. Rossi at a drive-in wedding chapel in Las Vegas. I had an Elvis impersonator perform the ceremony.
Lewis: You're kidding.
Hotch: Wait for it.
Rossi: I'm playing 21. I've got a streak going. I can't lose even if I try. Krystall's the dealer. One thing leads to another. I should have known it wouldn't last. Krystall spells her name with a K and two Ls. When we sobered up the next morning, the divorce was just as quick. I'll never make that mistake again.
Morgan: What? Get married or have the King of Rock and Roll as your justice of the peace?
Rossi: Both, thank you very much.

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped - Tony Robbins.


Criminal Minds Quotes

The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation - James E. Faust


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.
