Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: [closing quote, voiceover] Gandhi said "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: The torture of a bad conscience is the hell of a living soul. - John Calvin
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.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Statistically 94% of all serial arsonists are male, 75% are white, and a few, if any, are ever caught
Emily Prentiss: Few? You don't have a percentage?
Dr. Spencer Reid: 16%... and those 16% set 30-plus fires before they are apprehended. I am trying to be more conversational
Emily Prentiss: Ooh, it's not working
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.
Dr. Spencer Reid: This place is great! They have their own espresso machine!
Jennifer Jareau: Eh, Dr. Reid? This is detective Castro, she is with the SFPD liaison
Dr. Spencer Reid: Burned my hand on the espresso machine
[picks up a first aid box and unintentionally drops the contents]
Det. Leah Castro: A genius you said?
Jennifer Jareau: Yeah, eh... his coordination drops off when he is thinking
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: I catch killers, I save lives, I am a hero until my key hits my front door and then I am just the father and the husband who is never there
Jason Gideon: Yeah, I get that one
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: Here's the thing: when I am home, I am in this silent panic because I know that I have to be as good as I can, as fast as I can, because any minute the phone is gonna ring and my time is up.
Jason Gideon: For them fire is just a substitute for sexual release
Penelope Garcia: Oh great! So, if these guys don't get laid, they start fires?
Jason Gideon: Or in this case, burn entire families to death
Emily Prentiss: No statistic?
Jason Gideon: No, they don't have statistics on this guy. One of a kind
Penelope Garcia: Thank God!
Penelope Garcia: She shoots... she scores... the crowd goes wild...
Dr. Spencer Reid: It's Garcia on line one
Penelope Garcia: Brace yourselves. I am gonna teach you the meaning of LUST!
Jason Gideon: Did she say: lust?
Penelope Garcia: Mm, mm, I cross-referenced every known fact on the victims and I just found a website that links both Dennis Cutler and Matthew Jarvis' companies: a list of companies guilty of L.U.S.T.
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: I am missing something
Penelope Garcia: Leaking Underground Storage Tanks
Lt. Ricardo Vega: Where you guys want it?
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: This is this spot
Jason Gideon: When he arrives, bring the fake bodies right past us, nice and slow! I want him to get a good look
Lt. Ricardo Vega: Remind me to never play poker with you guys
