Reid: Even when you first laid eyes on me, from the bar, from outside, from wherever you were, you should have seen through me, and kept on moving. But you didn't. You couldn't. Because you can't get to the man you really want to hurt so you need to hurt any man who reminds you of him.
Cat: That's kind of boiler-plate psychology, isn't it? I'm just another girl with daddy issues?
Reid: You'd be surprised how many killers do what they do because of their parents. If it's so boiler-plate, let's test the theory. How hard did you look for him?
Cat: Very hard.
Reid: How disappointed were you when you realized that you will never find him?

Cat: Tell me about your wife.
Reid: If you don't mind, I'd rather not talk about her.
Cat: Might as well get it out in the open, right? That's why we're here. How long have you been married?
Reid: Four years.

Cat: When is she due to give birth?
Reid: Couple of months. Should we talk about price now, or
Cat: Slow down, tiger. What exactly are we negotiating here?
Reid: You know.
Cat: I want to hear you say it.
Reid: To have her killed.

Cat: You lied to me.
Reid: If it makes you feel any better, I really did look for him. But I couldn't find him. So yeah, I did make it all up.
Cat: Not all of it. You don't pull a whole story about a parent losing her memory out of nowhere. Your mother and the Alzheimer's, that's true. I won.
Reid: How so?
Cat: Because I will get out of here.
Reid: Yeah, in twenty years, maybe. If you're lucky.
Cat: Yeah, that's fine. You know why? Because in twenty years, I'll remember your name, but you won't remember mine.

Cat: You test yourself? No you didn't. You were too scared.
Reid: I thought I dodged a bullet when I turned 30 and didn't have a schizophrenic break like her, but this is somehow bigger and scarier because I can actually see it happening. All the memories that we used to share are just dying. I can't stop it, I can't help her. All I can do is find people that I can help.

Cat: Tell me now or I'll...
Reid: Detonate the bomb? You're not going to do that, Cat because then you won't learn anything. You said you were good at your job because you think through every outcome. Well guess what? So do I.

Cat: Do you know why I'm so good at my job?
Reid: Because you kill without compunction or remorse.
Cat: That only gets a girl so far in life. No, it's because I think through every potential outcome, and then I plan accordingly. You see, I didn't want into your trap. You walked into mine.

Cat: Why did you take time off from the FBI?
Reid: You can ask me as many times as you want. You can continue to waste your time and I'm still not going to tell you.
Cat: Then you're cheating and I don't like cheaters.
Reid: You don't get everything you want just because you're point a gun at me under a table. You're not the first killer to point a gun at me. You're not even the first woman to point a gun at me. Sorry.
Cat: You're really going to take this all the way, aren't you?
Reid: Yeah.
Cat: So am I.

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.
