Quotes

Penelope Garcia: Networks say the calls came from a restricted number. Two have given limited permission to trap and trace the lines if we should need to.

Aaron Hotchner: You got a news organization to agree to a trap and trace?

Penelope Garcia: Who could say no to me?

Derek Morgan: I hope she reads as fast as Reid.

Jason Gideon: [hangs up phone] No one reads as fast as Reid.

Dr. Spencer Reid: So Seattle's where "it" all began.

Derek Morgan: We just need to figure out what "it" is. And off the top of my head, I can think of grunge music and overpriced coffee.

Dr. Spencer Reid: That doesn't seem significant enough for terrorism.

Jason Gideon: If it's a personal cause bomber, it only needs to be of significance to him.

Derek Morgan: Hey, doll face. Ready to work some magic for me?

Penelope Garcia: Challenge me, you beautiful behavioral analyst.

Derek Morgan: Domestic terrorist activity in the Seattle area.

Penelope Garcia: Ugh. Morgan, I said challenge me. Doesn't even raise my blood pressure. Pacific Northwest is, like, ripe with the disgruntled. You have animal rights, zoning laws...

Derek Morgan: Specifically anti-technology?

Penelope Garcia: Ah, yes. My loony opposites.

[Opening Quote]

Jason Gideon: Robspierre wrote: "Crime butchers innocence to secure prize and innocence struggles with all its might against the attempts of crime."

Jason Gideon: And what he said I said, I said.

Dr. Spencer Reid: Do you mind if we swing by a book store, I want to re-read Empty Planet before we meet with the author, I haven't read it since I was six.

Derek Morgan: Six? I was still riding my big wheeler at six!

Dr. Spencer Reid: Do you mind, it'll only take ten minutes.

Jason Gideon: Do buy it or to read it?

Dr. Spencer Reid: Uh both actually.

[last lines]

Derek Morgan: [quoting Spencer] "A young man that I respect is putting his life on the line"?

Dr. Spencer Reid: [to stares] What?

Derek Morgan: Gideon, I couldn't leave that lady alone to die.

Jason Gideon: I didn't say you were wrong.

Jason Gideon: And what he said I said...

Derek Morgan: Yeah?

Jason Gideon: I said.

Aaron Hotchner: We believe the unsub resides in Seattle. All of the attacks, most of which have just involved property damage, have take place here, and the timing and location indicate knowledge of the area. Even though he escalated to a lethal bombing today, we don't believe that that was necessarily his intention.

Derek Morgan: In fact, anyone not directly next to the device received minor injuries. So we think fear may have been the larger motive.

Special Agent Nick Casey: So he's a terrorist, then.

Dr. Spencer Reid: He is, but it's too vague a description for our purposes. Douglas and Olshaker categorize bombers as criminal, group cause, psychologically disorganized, and personal cause bombers. And we believe this guy to be a personal cause bomber.

Aaron Hotchner: And personal cause bombers are motivated by an underlying emotional conflict.

Dr. Spencer Reid: In an interview from prison, the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, admitted that while he was a graduate student at the University of Michigan, he started having fantasies of becoming a woman. He even got on a list to get a sex change operation, but during a mandatory psychological exam prior to his procedure, he changed his mind. He told the psychologist that he'd made a mistake.

Jason Gideon: But from that moment, through the next three decades of his life, Ted Kaczynski carried out a campaign of isolation and murder.

Derek Morgan: This unsub is male. He lives alone. He's possibly self-employed. He's highly organized, he's meticulous, and he's very smart.

Aaron Hotchner: And he seems odd to those who know him. Angry, distant, prone to sudden violent rage. This is not the kind of guy whose neighbors will be surprised to find out what he's arrested for. This guy's neighbors will have no trouble believing it.

Jason Gideon: Targets appear to be technology, but not the hi-tech variety. The kind of technology we're surrounded by.

Aaron Hotchner: In a city the size of Seattle, we're talking... 10,000 possible targets.
