Dr. Spencer Reid: [opening, voiceover] "I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity." - Edgar Allan Poe.
[Reid starts to realize something and his lips move]
David Rossi: I can hear the high-pitched whine from your IQ all the way over here. What is it?
Jennifer Jareau: Excuse me, everybody. I have an announcement to make. As I'm sure some of you were aware, Henry was a little nervous about going trick-or-treating this year. But he's decided to go anyway.
David Rossi: Great. What changed his mind?
Jennifer Jareau: The BAU did. I told him that he should go out on Halloween and try to figure out which monsters are real and which ones are not.
Derek Morgan: So he wants to be a profiler.
Jennifer Jareau: Ah, he wants to be his favorite profiler.
[Henry appears in Reid-like wear]
Geena Deaver: It was a day like any other day. This is what happens to other people. You see it on the news, you know. Give it, what, 30 seconds of your time, shake your head, go back to whatever stupid thing you were doing, washing dishing or putting away laundry. You never think it's going to happen to you!
Alex Blake: [closing, voiceover] Alfred Austin said, "Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are."
Penelope Garcia: What do you mean he's not going? Every kid loves trick-or-treat
Jennifer Jareau: Henry's scared! One of his little buddies told him Halloween was the only time when all the real monsters come out, because they can blend in
David Rossi: Never thought about that! Good monster strategy
Penelope Garcia: Hum, you did tell him it wasn't true, right?
Jennifer Jareau: Of course I did, but he's convinced
David Rossi: Childhood fears are resistant to adult logic. Sometimes you just have to wait it out
Jennifer Jareau: For how long?
David Rossi: Well, if he's 23 and this still worries you, you got a problem!
Derek Morgan: He's efficient and well-organized. It's not easy to make four people vanish and then stay vanished.
Dr. Spencer Reid: It has been done before, though. Uh, political kidnappings frequently require holding multiple adults simultaneously.
David Rossi: Or they're already dead. Nothing says "can't be found" like a shallow grave in the middle of nowhere.
David Rossi: I recognize that scowl, Aaron. What are you thinking?
David Rossi: Childhood fears are resistant to adult logic. Sometimes you just have to wait it out.
Jennifer Jareau: For how long?
David Rossi: Well, if he's 23 and this still worries you, you got a problem.
Jennifer Jareau: Economics, philosophy, political theory. Not exactly breezy, take-to-the-beach reading.
Dr. Spencer Reid: I would, but I don't really like the beach.
Jennifer Jareau: Why is that?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Sandy food, pink skin, limited and unengaging topography, but mostly drug-resistant bacteria spread by sea gull feces.
Jennifer Jareau: Sorry, I asked.
Emma Kerrigan: My daughter will be dead by then.
Alex Blake: I believe you, Emma. I can see how sick she is. I talked to your doctor.
Emma Kerrigan: Dr. Gourse? You, you talked to Dr. Gourse
Alex Blake: Yes. He said Lexy is too sick for this to work. This man's blood won't do anything.
Emma Kerrigan: But it has to. It's all I have left.
Alex Blake: No. No. What can cure Lexy is what cured you. Funeral homes are required by law to keep a portion of the remains of those that they cremate. These are your husband's ashes. Only these will make your daughter well.
Derek Morgan: It says here that vomit was found at the vicinity of his abduction
Penelope Garcia: Hmm, thank you for reminding me of that disgusting detail, Dreamy D.! Yes that vomit has been collected and is being analyzed as we speak and I am very grateful that I have this job and someone has that one, that's not me!
Derek Morgan: Hey, you're talking to the room, PG
Penelope Garcia: Hm, If by PG you mean Parental Guidance strongly advised, I'd say PA prudent advice!
Penelope Garcia: Those of you who like a good mystery, please unleash your inner Agatha Christie, 'cause this one's a real humdinger.
Penelope Garcia: It's been really bugging me, I can't figure out what Terry Rodgers was doing those missing five months. I mean, you can't sit on a park bench in this country and not leave a paper trail!
David Rossi: But you figured it out?
Penelope Garcia: No. That's just me venting.
David Rossi: [reads a message] That was Hotch. The doctor told him the placenta was scraped completely out of the victim's uterus. Every bit of it.
Dr. Spencer Reid: You know, the placenta does carry special significance in many cultures. In ancient Egypt, it had its own hieroglyph. And the Ibo tribe in Nigeria considered it to be the child's dead twin.
Jennifer Jareau: Well, that would be helpful, if our UnSub was an ancient Egyptian or Ibo tribeswoman, but...
David Rossi: What is it?
Dr. Spencer Reid: It could be placentophagy.
Jennifer Jareau: What?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Consuming it. In the wild, it's common for animals to eat their own afterbirth. It's super rich in nutrients.
David Rossi: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait. So the UnSub might have harvested this last victim... for food?
David Rossi: So, did you learn anything?
Jennifer Jareau: Yeah, Spence here does not like the beach
Dr. Spencer Reid: I don't
Aaron Hotchner: [Picks up his mobile] Go ahead, Garcia
Penelope Garcia: I just hit the trifacta, but with two things instead of three. What's that? A bifecta?
David Rossi: Exacta! What do you got?
Penelope Garcia: Well, that's just... Anyway, uh, two missing vehicles, not missing any more!
Aaron Hotchner: Blake, you and Morgan go talk to the families of the victims, see if there's something that links them that's not on paper. Dave and I will go to the abduction site. Reid, you and JJ go to Terry Rodgers' cabin. He's the one we know least about. Maybe he made himself obscure for a reason.
