Criminal Minds Season 7 Episode 1: "It Takes A Village" Quotes
Agent Morgan: Emily, what did you tell them?
Agent Prentiss: The only people I know who could accomplish that mission just walked out. They have integrity and most importantly, they honor their oath. I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. That I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. That I will fully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter, so help me God.
Senator Cramer: You're the one who insisted Ian Doyle be released.
Dr. Reid: I am.
Cramer: And you're the only one who has not requested reinstatement to the unit. Was the decision to release Ian Doyle a personal one?
Reid: A young boy's life was at stake. I ran the probability for survival and it wasn't good. If you want to punish me for taking a risk then I encourage you to do that, but don't put the rest of my team on trial for something that I suggested.
Agent Hotchner: Seven months ago I made a decision that affected this team. As you all know, Emily had lost a lot of blood as a result of her fight with Doyle. But the doctors were able to stabilize her and airlift her from Boston to Bethesda under covert exportation. Her identity was strictly need-to-know and she stayed there until she was well enough to travel. She was reassigned to Paris where she had access to several identities, none of which we had access to for her security.
Garcia: She's alive?
Agent Rossi: Have you ever been in the field?
Senator Cramer: I have, but I'm not the one on trial here.
Rossi: Then maybe you can imagine what it was like to find Emily Prentiss dying at the hands of Ian Doyle. Now ask yourself, was it wrong for him to want to take him out?
Garcia: This would've been a heck of a lot easier had he gone digital.
Morgan: Garcia there's an art to this. This guy was meticulous, definitely a control freak.
Garcia: Yeah, he's dead. He couldn't control that.
