    • Garcia: (drinking coffee) The kid's tech savvy, sir. But fret not. I am tech savvier. Is that a word? That sounds like a word. If it is a word, I'm it.
      Prentiss: D.C. time, Garcia.

    • Sheriff Hallum: That wasn't Jordan's body that we found.
      Prentiss: Who was it?
      Sheriff Hallum: Not who. What. The remains we sent to the M.E. turned out to be three hams and a dozen bone-in ribeyes stuffed in Jordan Norris' blue jeans. So, you tell me. Is she a hostage or accomplice?

    • Rod Norris: (speaking to a creaking tree) You wake me again tonight… it'll be a chainsaw for you.

    • Prentiss: (reading text sent from Jordan's PDA) "You turned her against me."

      Prentiss: Somebody please tell me we didn't just get Jordan killed.

    Notes (1)

    • The two songs sang by Johnny Cash in this episode were "The Man Comes Around" and "Hurt."

    Trivia (2)

    • Reid explains at the school that Owen has a learning disability with spatial problems. For example, he wouldn't be able to fill in the correct bubble on a standardized test. However, they previously talked about how the shooter had the skills to effectively use an automatic weapon and how Owen's father had taught him how to shoot because he was a Marine. Shooting well requires excellent hand-eye coordination, which Reid said he didn't have at all.

    • When Reid is speaking before the "Beltway Clean Cops" group, his hair is parted on the left. A few scenes later, his hair is parted on the right. Then the part returns to the left side before he leaves the podium.

    Allusions (1)

    • Reid said he had a crush on Allison Lisbon in this episode. This line was possibly a reference to A.J. Cook's role as Mary Lisbon in the movie The Virgin Suicides (1999).
