Reid [to Garcia]: It was an experiment. She wanted to time how long you could keep a private conservation private, and you made it 12 hours.
Alvez: Damn. I had you down for six.
Garcia: You know what? I thought you were my friends, but you suck. You all suck, especially new guy, but then you always suck.
Reid: I had 14 hours. I think I win, right?
J.J.: Who had 11?
Prentiss: I did.

I have a badge and a very short fuse.


Mr. Scratch has my brother.


Albert: But the two of you were just so different. You, I never had to worry about you. But your brother, he needed something different, something that I just couldn't give him.
Lewis: Daddy, you did your best. Now it's my turn.

When it comes to my brother, hostility and dismissal are my specialty.


I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm getting tired of losing to this rat-faced son of a bitch. He's not going to take anyone else away from us, not on my watch. Am I clear?


Garcia: Does this mean we're never going to be able to talk to him again?
Rossi: We don't have a choice. It's not ideal, obviously, but as his friends, we've got to support his decision.

J.J.: That's a lot to process before my first cup. I can't believe he's been dealing with this for weeks and we never knew.
Reid: That part actually doesn't surprise me. He's always kept things to himself. It's just his way of protecting us.

You'll adapt, we all will. Trust me, kiddo. I've been here before.

Rossi [to Garcia]

Garcia: I was feeling forgotten.
Lewis: Never!

Prentiss: I love being here and I've really missed you guys.
J.J.: We have missed you too.
Reid: Honestly, you have no idea how much.

It's what happens when we're not on a case that defines who we are. We stand beside one another, through good, through bad, because we're family.
