David Rossi: What else is on your mind?
Ashley Seaver: A dog... When I was seven years old, I found a puppy on my way home from school. I ran all the way home with this little ball of fur. I was so excited. And when I got to the house, my dad was the only one home. And I gave him the puppy to hold while I got him some milk. We didn't have dog food, but I thought, well, a puppy's like a baby, so milk, right? And when I got back, my dad was in the bathroom, and he turned and told me to put the milk away. I didn't understand. And he told me we didn't need the hassle of another mouth to feed, and I was never to do that again... And he tilted his head, and I started crying and I could swear he looked like he was having fun.

David Rossi: It is for me.

"Criminal Minds: Valhalla (#6.17)" (2011)
Penelope Garcia: Are you okay?
Emily Prentiss: Yeah, I'm good.
Penelope Garcia: I'm not a profiler, but you...
Emily Prentiss: Don't start... I'm sorry. I'm gonna be all right.
Penelope Garcia: Okay. I'm just really worried about you. The flu is going around. Are you pregs?
Emily Prentiss: [smiles weakly] No. No, I'm just... I'm not sleeping. I'm having this nightmare. It's a recurring nightmare. There's a hill, and there's a little girl on top of the hill. She's like six years old, dark hair. And she's just dancing in the sun. But somehow I know that she's waiting for me, so I start to walk up the hill... But the hill gets steeper and steeper, and by the time I climb to the top, the little girl's gone. And I look everywhere for her, and when I can't find her, I start to panic. And I panic because I know what's waiting out there for her. I know what the world can do to a girl who only sees beauty in it. Like you. Somehow you... You always make me smile. And I don't think I've ever thanked you for that.
Ashley Seaver: [comes in the restroom] Hotch needs you in the SCIF.
Emily Prentiss: Okay.

Penelope Garcia: Here's the million-dollar question... Anyone know what language that is?
Emily Prentiss: Those are villages in North Korea.
Penelope Garcia: I love you. Of course she does. There's a political prison near Haengyong ni. Camp 22. Kwanliso. North Korea denies it exists.
Emily Prentiss: You think they took Doyle there?
Penelope Garcia: That would explain why he's after them. Even his prison is off the grid.

"Criminal Minds: Coda (#6.16)" (2011)
Ashley Seaver: Is that the one where they fly around in the phone booth?
Dr. Spencer Reid: First of all, it's a police box, not a phone booth. Second of all, Doctor Who started a quarter of century before Bill and Ted even went on their bodacious adventures. So really, they should just call it Bill and Ted's excellent rip-off, I mean at least then...
Ashley Seaver: I'm really sorry.
Dr. Spencer Reid: For what?
Ashley Seaver: Asking.

Emily Prentiss: What about local financial records?

Penelope Garcia: A hundred and twenty-seven names. I know, do not shoot the messenger. Just tell me how to narrow it down.
Emily Prentiss: Do all 127 have children?
Penelope Garcia: No. But 76 do.
Ashley Seaver: Okay, how many of them have homes in foreclosure versus other debt that might not put them out onto streets?
Penelope Garcia: Oh, you are very good. We are officially down to 24.
Emily Prentiss: Send us those files.
Penelope Garcia: At cyber-tastic speeds, my sweets.

"Criminal Minds: Corazon (#6.12)" (2011)
Aaron Hotchner: Reid? Anything helpful?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Yeah. Yeah... The Afro-Caribbean syncretic religions began when slaves mixed their traditional religions with Catholicism in order to camouflage them.

Derek Morgan: And what about the shells?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Let's see. This is Ellegua, the deity of the crossroads, a trickster and the impartial enforcer of justice.
Ashley Seaver: So, is the UnSub sacrificing the victims to him?
Dr. Spencer Reid: None of these religions openly call for human sacrifice, only animals.

Ashley Seaver: So, we're looking for a liar in DC? I thought we were trying to narrow this down.

Jack Fahey: He's not so tough.
Ashley Seaver: Wow. I bet you're his hookup, aren't you? I mean, after all, you're the man.
Jack Fahey: I could show you how much of a man I really am.
[Rossi moves to Jack]
Jack Fahey: All right, all right, all right. Jeez, what's with the sexy cop/bad cop routine? What do you two think...

David Rossi: Yeah, we did.
Penelope Garcia: Yeah, if we weren't so exhausted I would toast us.

Dr. Spencer Reid: Yeah, the highest one being lead.

David Rossi: Lead fumes can get into your system during the soldering process.
[Seaver gives Rossi a weird glance]
David Rossi: What? My second wife was crafty.
