Hotch: The note. "Seeing red." What does it mean?
Morgan: I don't know. You're looking for micro-expressions.
Hotch: You've divided this team when we need to work together. JJ disobeyed orders by going to you, and now you're withholding.
Morgan: I didn't divide this team. You did.

Hotch: Where is he?
Morgan: He's not going to stop.
Hotch: Morgan, tell me where he is.
Morgan: I can't get anyone else hurt.
Hotch: This isn't your call.
Morgan: Come on. You have to know what I'm feeling right now!
Hotch: That's why you either need to come back here, or tell me where you're going.
Morgan: I can't do it. I'm sorry, man. Goodbye Aaron.

Montolo: I'll tell you what I believe. You killed my son.
Morgan: Wrong.
Montolo: You're the last person that saw him alive.
Morgan: Yes I was, but someone else poisoned him.
Montolo: How did he end up in prison?
Morgan: I arrested him. I didn't kill him.
Montolo: That's your belief. Mine is that you killed my flesh and blood, and have no idea what that feels like.....yet!

Garcia: I've got Morgan.
Morgan: Are you all there?
Hotch: Yeah, we're here. Are you all right?
Morgan: He's got a gun with two bullets. Listen to me. I made a decision tonight that lead me to this. This is my fault, you understand? No one else's. And if this is how it ends, it was meant to be.
Garcia: Don't say that.
Morgan: Promise me you'll look after Savannah and my baby.
Garcia: Of course we will. So will you. [gunshot rings out]
Garcia: Derek!

Morgan: My team was never in danger.
Montolo: You don't know that.
Morgan: This house doesn't have a landline.

It's a boy!

Morgan: I know you hate goodbyes, kid. And change. Hey, it isn't always a bad thing.
Reid: I just can't imagine this room without you.
Morgan: So don't. Don't think about it. Just know I'm always going to be by your side. I'm just a phone call away. I'm sorry I can't stay.
Reid: I don't want you to stay, because I know why you're leaving and I couldn't be happier for you.
Morgan: Well listen, we were going to mail these, but I wanted you to have a birth announcement first.
Reid: Hank Spencer Morgan.
Morgan: Yeah. Hank is for my pops. But Spencer is for the best little brother anybody could ever ask for. I love you, kid.
Reid: I love you.

As a good friend of mine said, every ending is also a beginning. We just don't know it at the time. I'd like to believe she's right.

Morgan

Morgan: All right, your eyes are starting to do that thing that they do. Let's have it.
Rossi: Have what?
Morgan: It's not my birthday. And I said to you please, no welcome back party.
Rossi: All right, look. I'm not saying, but...I was supposed to distract you. So do me a favor and act surprised when you go in there, all right?
Morgan: All right, I got you covered.

Reid: If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that you and Savannah are going to be great parents.
Morgan: [smiling] You charge by the hour, doc?

I said her name! I forgot!

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.
