Erin Strauss : What is going on here? You didn't profile this as a suicide mission.
David Rossi : 'Cause it wasn't. They'd never kill themselves.
Erin Strauss : What the hell do you call that, then?
David Rossi : They didn't improvise a way out. They've had an exit strategy in place. You don't learn explosives overnight.
Derek Morgan : Tactical's been deployed, snipers are moving into position.
Erin Strauss : The director's ordered a full tactical assault.
Derek Morgan : His last orders cost us an agent.
Detective William LaMontagne Jr. : SWAT's getting itchy fingers.
Aaron Hotchner : Well, you remind SWAT that bank robberies are federal jurisdiction. No one fires until they're ordered to.
Detective William LaMontagne Jr. : Right.
Aaron Hotchner : All right, when the crossfire starts, what's gonna happen to the hostages caught in the middle?
David Rossi : That's the wrong call, Erin, and you know it.
Erin Strauss : It's not my call.
Aaron Hotchner : You're here and you're in charge.
Erin Strauss : So, you want me to disobey the director?
David Rossi : Yes.
Aaron Hotchner : No. I just want you to buy us a little time. Don't be quite so efficient.
Erin Strauss : Whatever you're gonna do, do it fast.
Aaron Hotchner : All right.
