Dr. Spencer Reid: [voiceover] "It has been said time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it is never gone." - Rose Kennedy.
Jason Gideon: [voiceover] "The defects and faults of the mind are like wounds in the body. After all imaginable care has been taken to heal them up, still there will be a scar left behind." - French writer Francois La Rochefoucauld.
Aaron Hotchner: What the hell was that?
Dr. Spencer Reid: He had a bomb.
Derek Morgan: You didn't think we needed to know that?
Dr. Spencer Reid: I told you to go downstairs.
Derek Morgan: Well, you didn't say "bomb". You left that part out.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: That was Hotch.
Derek Morgan: Don't tell me. Reid already figured it out and we drove all the way out here for nothing, right?
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: Derek...
Derek Morgan: What? What?
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: The... the unsub... Elle was shot in her apartment this morning.
Derek Morgan: [stopping the car] What?
[Morgan turns the car around]
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: What are you doing?
Derek Morgan: I'm going back.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: No, no, no. Hotch said not to.
Derek Morgan: I don't give a damn what Hotch said.
Derek Morgan: Detective, I've seen kids missing for a decade, and their rooms look exactly the way they did the day that they left. Parents don't just pack up their kid's stuff and put 'em in boxes in the garage. Parents don't give up, ever.
Dr. Spencer Reid: There's something familiar about it. I think I heard it somewhere before
Derek Morgan: Thought you had a photographic memory
Dr. Spencer Reid: Eidetic memory, that's primarily related to things I read. Like I said, this is something I think I've heard
Dr. Spencer Reid: My mom used to read me that. It's widely considered as the first Valentine's poem
Penelope Garcia: Your mom read you Valentine's poems? Hello therapy!
Dr. Spencer Reid: I should have realized this sooner, and looking at those things and realizes the fact that JJ collects butterflies, except for me. People tell me their secrets all the time. Think it's 'cause they know I don't have anyone to betray them to... except my mother... I... tell her pretty much everything
Penelope Garcia: I don't think anyone would mind
Dr. Spencer Reid: You know I write her a letter every day?
Penelope Garcia: That's nice
Dr. Spencer Reid: Depends on... why
Penelope Garcia: What'd you mean?
Dr. Spencer Reid: I write her a letter, so I won't feel so guilty about not visiting her
Dr. Spencer Reid: You know schizophrenia is genetically passed?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Mom, we've found her! Rebecca is safe. You helped us save her life
Diana Reid: [back in her own world] Is it time for lunch yet?
Dr. Spencer Reid: What?
Diana Reid: I'm lecturing everyone about Tristan and Isolde. They're all gathering in my room after lunch
Dr. Spencer Reid: [plays along] Can I attend the lecture too?
Diana Reid: Have you read any of the material?
Dr. Spencer Reid: I've had them read to me
Diana Reid: Wonderful! That's the best way, isn't it?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Yes ma'am. By far
Jason Gideon: Gideon.
Unsub: What I had to do was not my fault.
Jason Gideon: Excuse me?
Unsub: It was distasteful and barbaric.
Jason Gideon: Who is this?
Unsub: No one else had to be hurt.
Jason Gideon: Call yourself "the Fisher King"?
Unsub: I told you there were rules.
Jason Gideon: I'm actually more interested in exactly how you got all those burns.
Unsub: Remember this next time you decide to step outside my instructions: Agent Greenaway did not have to die like that.
