    • (Rossi arrives for the briefing in a tuxedo)
      Prentiss: Whoa!
      Hotchner: Sorry to ruin your night.
      Morgan: What, are you working on Wife No. 4?
      Rossi: I see you people way too much.

    • Kevin Lynch: (speaking to Garcia on the phone) What do you mean, you're sharing a room with Morgan?
      Garcia: Oh, you're jealous.
      Kevin Lynch: Jealous? Why? Because you're bedding down with a muscle-bound, modern-day 007?
      : Mmm, he's more like Jason Bourne.
      Kevin Lynch
      : Oh, what's there to be jealous about?
      : He took the floor.
      Kevin Lynch
      : OK. Just... just make sure he keeps his weapon holstered, OK?

    • Morgan: I'm not sleeping with Reid.

    • Garcia: Ralph W. Sockman said, "Nothing is so strong as gentleness, and nothing is so gentle as real strength."

    • Garcia: "Nature, in her most dazzling aspects or stupendous parts, is but the background and theater of the tragedy of man." John Morley

    Notes (2)

    • The song heard at the end of this episode was "I Made a Lover's Prayer" by Gillian Welch.

    • This episode wrapped on April 2, 2010, and was filmed on location in Frazier Park and San Pedro, California.

    Trivia (8)

    • Goof: Garcia, given her colorful wardrobe, would not have packed a black dress andĀ earrings for a trip to Alaska. Especially for a death she didn't know would happen, or affect her.

    • Joe Mantegna originally had a line in the scene where Rossi enters the BAU office wearing a tuxedo, "It's OK. Ringo will have other parties." Joe loved this line, but it was subsequently cut from the episode.

    • The shopping scene between JJ, Prentiss and Garcia was originally written for "The Slave of Duty" (without the reference to Mick Rawson and his accent). When the decision was made to kill off Haley Hotchner in "100," the episode was completely rewritten.

    • Deputy Jace Stiller was named after the two writers' production assistants: Erik Stiller and Jace Sparks.

    • When Garcia refers to her speed dial setting as "lucky number 7," this was in inside joke. Kirsten Vangsness is #7 on the cast call sheet.

    • Hotch refers to Robert Hansen as being the first serial killer in Alaska since the eighties. Hansen was described as being quiet and a loner, who had a dysfunctional relationship with his domineering father. Between 1980 and 1983, Hansen murdered between 17 and 21 people near Anchorage, Alaska.
