Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: The torture of a bad conscience is the hell of a living soul. - John Calvin
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: The unsub we're looking for is a highly intelligent, underachieving, 35 to 45 year old white male with a severe narcissistic character disorder.
Jason Gideon: Nothing in his life works for long. If he was married, he's now divorced. If employed, it won't last.
Derek Morgan: What he wants is admiration, but he's got no respect for others. Not their feelings, and most certainly not their safety.
Jason Gideon: He feels entitled. He's like a petulant adolescent. He both resents and he absolutely expects others to take care of him.
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: And given that a male relative wouldn't tolerate this behavior, he most likely lives with a female relative; his mother, grandmother, aunt, whom he exploits.
Derek Morgan: His arson kit is expensive. Fire suit, oxygen mask. This suggests that he may be employed, but his personality will not allow him to work closely with others in an office setting.
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: This, along with the information about his vehicle, lead us to believe that he's a traveling salesman of some sort who works for a company big enough not to notice that he's a sociopath.
Det. Leah Castro: Okay, this scumbag has issues. We all get it. But why fire?
Dr. Spencer Reid: He's, uh, like a drug addict. Only fire's his drug, and each time an addict needs a fix, they need more of the drug to get off. So his crimes will most likely get much worse. It would be almost impossible for him to quit without help.
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: Has she said anything about the fires?
Doctor: I'm giving her as much painkiller as I can. She asked about her husband and son. She passed out again before I had to answer.
Emily Prentiss: So she doesn't know.
Doctor: [shakes her head no] Whatever you tell her, she won't live long enough to know different. I'll be right back.
Emily Prentiss: Did she just tell us to lie to a material witness?
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: No. She told us that we could.
