Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: I'm the only thing standing between you and a bullet.
Gary: Bring it. I always wanted die in a donut shop.
Derek Morgan: Look at me. I don't want to hurt you, okay? Let's make a deal. You give me that gun, I promise you I will walk you out of here and you will never have to come back. Sound pretty good?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: I teach crisis negotiation. I co-wrote the textbook, and in twelve years I've never talked anybody off a ledge so fast.
Gary: Oh, bit of a milestone then.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Why did you walk out that door, Gary?
Gary: Sugar crash.
Emily Prentiss: [voiceover] "In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it's intimate and psychological, resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul." Barbara Ehrenreich
Tyler: They're lies.
Derek Morgan: I know. But you could have come in here and you could have made her pay. And you didn't, because you're good. You're not Gary. No, you're nothing like him.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Prentiss, this is the job, and I need to know that you can be objective.
Emily Prentiss: And I need to know that I can be human.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: I think it's a good idea, though.
Emily Prentiss: What's that?
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau: You, kids. I can see it.
Derek Morgan: Yeah, I understand that. I'm just... I'm asking some type of alternative for that... Nothing? Yes, I got it. Don't ask me if I like it.
Emily Prentiss: Oh, what? What is it?
Derek Morgan: Social Services won't intervene to a regular formal investigation.
Emily Prentiss: We have to take them home?
Derek Morgan: Yeah.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: We're looking for two men. Probably white, given the neighborhoods that they hit, mid to late twenties, intelligent, and organized.
Derek Morgan: These are career criminals. One or both has done hard time, but neither presents as a convict. They would appear clean-shaven, well dressed...
Emily Prentiss: Neighborly. This helps them talk their way into the homes. They may also be using a ruse.
Lt. Nellis: What kind of ruse?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Given that the invasions have taken place in the evening, it could be anything. Could be door to door sales, person in distress, car trouble.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Uh, Derrick Todd Lee used a tape of a baby crying to get women to open their doors in Baton Rouge. Never underestimate their creativity.
Emily Prentiss: These men share a very tight bond, and a mutual compulsion to kill, but their signatures reveal two very distinct personalities.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: One brutalizes the parents. This is the dominant one. Sadistic, remorseless, extremely volatile.
Emily Prentiss: The other prefers a needle. His injections are consistent with an angel of death. He's more withdrawn, sensitive, and he has a warped sense of mercy.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: At least they left the flowers alive, right?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: You answer your door and the next thing you know everyone you care about is gone!
Derek Morgan: If it's me, I wanna be gone too!
