Agent Prentiss: You are making a difference, you know. One person at a time.
Dr. Reid: Thank you. You know I've been thinking a lot lately about why I stayed after Gideon left, why I didn't take any of those other offers.
Prentiss: Nothing is accidental.
Reid:...And I realized, I don't know, there's just something incredibly right about being here. With you guys.

Agent Morgan: (holding photo) Look at this, another souvenir.
JJ: Well it's digital quality, it can't be that old.
Morgan: There's a void in the blood spatter pattern. It's a blow back shadow.
Agent Rossi: Somebody else was there.

Dr. Reid: He used the same code that was broken years ago in a riddle we cracked in seconds. He knew we'd crack it, it was a decoy.
Hotch: No, it's a taunt. He wants to prove that he's smarter than everyone.
Reid: And we fell for it. Well, if he's trying to compete with me then it means he's most likely within five years of my age. The question is why?
Hotch: But the message might not have been meant for you, Reid.
Reid: A letter was hand delivered to me last night!

Garcia (into phone): The Oracle is in, how may I assist?
Hotch: Garcia to what specific location does "magic city" refer?
Garcia: Birmingham, Alabama.
Dr. Reid: Ninety-eight minutes below the horizon, Garcia what time is sunset there tonight?
Garcia: 6:22.
Reid: Ninety-eight minutes there would be 8pm. What's dedicated to President Garfield in San Francisco?
Garcia: There's a statue of him in Golden Gate Park.

Dr. Reid: It's not the real Zodiac.
Prentiss: How can you be so sure?
Reid: I just know it. Sometimes I can't really explain it.

JJ: So how old would Zodiac be by now? The murders took place in the late...60s?
Garcia: Yeah, December 20, 1968 to October 11, 1969 to be exact. But he was suspected of other crimes and he sent letters and codes to newspapers until 1974.
Agent Morgan: Well at the very least the Zodiac would have to be about sixty by now.
JJ: Yeah but it doesn't take a lot of strength to pull a trigger.
Morgan: No, but it takes a lot of skill not to get caught for forty years.

Hotch: Did Jimmy ever fight MMA?
Garcia: Nothing that's been documented.
Prentiss: Most old school trainers won't let you cross over.
Reid: Well if he got his trainer out of the way and was looking for more blood he might try that tonight. It's just about the most violent sport there is.

Agent Morgan: Penelope, how's the greatest computer tech this side of the Mississippi?
Garcia: Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee, Garcia's going to find what only her screens can see, what do you need?

Agent Prentiss: We saw the bodies, all of them have stress breaks in the same places.
Agent Rossi: That's consistent with years of fight training.
Agent Hotchner: Fight training, you think he's a boxer?
Rossi: It makes sense, a fighter would have the endurance it takes to commit this kind of overkill on this many people with a pipe or with his hands.
Agent Morgan: It would explain why at the first crime scene he lined the bodies up in the corner, like in the ring.
Hotch: It makes sense about the blood lust, but what triggered the killings?

Agent Morgan: It could be overkill.
Hotch: But overkill usually means a personal relationship. If the victims didn't know each other, it's unlikely the UnSub knew them.
JJ: So what would account for this level of bloodletting?
Reid: The primal rage could be about the blood itself. If he's enjoying the killing then he's getting aroused by it and developing a kind of blood lust.
Morgan: Then why hasn't he done it again?
Hotch: Maybe he hasn't had the chance.

Dr. Reid: You know statistically, widowed men start dating much faster than females, but Hotch is refuting the data. It's been two years and nineteen days.
Garcia: Venus has aligned with Mars which means love is in the air and maybe we will have weekends off.
Agent Morgan: (clearing throat).
Garcia: What? Is he standing there? He's standing there isn't he?
Hotch: Hello Garcia.

Agent Rossi: Is she cute?
Agent Hotchner: Yes, she is but I need to be focused on my training. I don't need to be distracted.
Rossi: Yes, you should be. Distracted is good. What's her name?
Hotch: Beth.
Rossi: I like it. And, you know what they say about riding a bicycle.
Dr. Reid: Who's getting a bicycle?
Hotch: Nobody.

Criminal Minds Season 7 Quotes

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.
