Aaron Hotchner: [opening quotation, voiceover] "The prostitute is not, as feminists claim, the victim of men, but rather their conqueror. An outlaw who controls the sexual channels between nature and culture." - Camille Paglia.
Megan Kane: Who was it that said "You don't pay a prostitute for sex, you pay her to leave afterwards"?
Aaron Hotchner: It was Dashiell Hammett.
Megan Kane: It doesn't make sense. The men always leave first.
Megan Kane: [to Hotch] How could your wife have ever left someone like you? You're the first man I ever met who didn't let me down.
Emily Prentiss: I don't get it. I thought Hotch said we were gonna meet a madam here.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Actually, there's a lot of overlap between real estate and sex work. Uh, property is a safe and inspection-free investment for large sums of cash. Your brownstone used to be owned by a gigolo.
[going through a victim's finances]
Dr. Spencer Reid: 18 cars, 6 houses and 3 boats. Can you even boat in Dallas?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Female serial killers are a fascinating field. We don't have much information on them, but what we do know involves throwing the rules completely out the window. Signature, for instance. They don't torture or take trophies.
Derek Morgan: Because there's no sexual gratification when a woman kills.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Exactly. Murder is the goal. They don't have to do anything extra.
Dr. Spencer Reid: What about the, uhm, type of work, your, uhm, employers do? We're sure under the assumption that this escort is, uhm, killing men who, ehm, make her perform a specific sexual act
Lauren: What do you have in mind, sweetie?
Dr. Spencer Reid: I don't even... I don't know
Aaron Hotchner: Could you send details about the case or the unsub?
A.G. Patrick Jackson: It's not the unsub you need to worry about. It's the lawyers!
Ellen Daniels: No escort will agree to sit down with the FBI, but I have something better for you, assuming you might be willing to overlook certain legal niceties. Do you want to buy a house?
Aaron Hotchner: No
Ellen Daniels: Yes you do!
