Penelope Garcia: Hi I'm Penelope Garcia and I don't like change.
Alex Blake: Did any of you work on the Silencer case?
David Rossi: That was during my extended sabbatical.
Aaron Hotchner: We all consulted, but nobody made the trip to Texas.
Alex Blake: Why not? Three women in four months; that's textbook kill rate. An undeniable signature, obvious surrogates...
Aaron Hotchner: We weren't invited by the local police.
Alex Blake: Aren't you tired of that?
Aaron Hotchner: Welcome to our world.
Aaron Hotchner: If waiting for dark is his smartest move, that's what he'll do.
Penelope Garcia: Now that superwoman is on the case you don't need me.
Derek Morgan: You know what, I'm gonna chalk that up to a little jealousy.
Alex Blake: I don't feel comfortable speculating in front of them.
Derek Morgan: What about the rest of us?
Alex Blake: Dr. Reid and I are coming up theories. You're welcome to join us.
Jennifer Jareau: So how does eight years locked up change someone?
David Rossi: It takes away their voice.
Jennifer Jareau: Doesn't take away their rage, it only makes it worse.
Penelope Garcia: I was doing some digging because that's what I do...
Penelope Garcia: Okay, you never gave your vote on who should get what.
Derek Morgan: Give Reid the mug.
Penelope Garcia: Really? That means that JJ gets the double-decker bus?
Derek Morgan: I thought that was for Kevin.
Penelope Garcia: No, we're not talking right now.
Derek Morgan: Garcia, you guys were just talking yest... Never mind.
Alex Blake: The origin of "nice" is 12th century Middle English, meaning "foolish" or "stupid." I hope you're referring to the modern use of the adjective.
Alex Blake: You must be Penelope. I'm Alex Blake.
Penelope Garcia: Nice to meet you. Really, actually nice in the nicest of ways nice.

Alex Blake: Hold on. See how he wrote "Waiting on the taste of honey." It's got southern U.S. roots, but more specifically, it's Texas south, a sub-dialect of southern English found in the north-central part of the state. Right here, you wait for something that hasn't shown up, you wait on something that's nearby.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Then the taste of honey would be close.
Alex Blake: Yes, and the storyteller is probably from north of here.
Aaron Hotchner: I doubt anyone had ever spoken to him with any kindness.
Alex Blake: None of us should be denied that.

David Rossi: [team comes back in the office] Don't tell me there's another one.
Erin Strauss: There's always another one.
David Rossi: I told you we should have just gotten into our cars.
Jennifer Jareau: Where are we off to now?
Erin Strauss: Home. You need to spend at least one night in your own beds.
David Rossi: You don't have to tell me twice.
Erin Strauss: Agent Blake. I owe you an explanation. I know that you may not believe this, but the part of my job that I dislike the most is politics. When you were blamed for arresting the wrong suspect in the Marathox case, I didn't stand up for you. I let you take the fall.
Alex Blake: No, no. You cut my rope. It was the highest-profile case we'd seen that year. All eyes were on me. It took a decade to recover.
Erin Strauss: But I can assure you that your reputation in the bureau remained intact.
Alex Blake: It sounds like you've convinced yourself that you didn't do any damage, but you did, Erin.
Erin Strauss: Well, that was never my intent. I'm sorry. And my hope is that we can get past it. Maybe it doesn't matter to you, but I am glad that you're here.
Alex Blake: Well, that makes two of us.
Erin Strauss: Good night.
