  • Trivia

    • JJ and Will name their son Henry. Henry was one of the names that Haley Hotchner suggested for her and Hotch's son (Extreme Aggressor), but Hotch rejected because it reminded him of a serial killer (Henry Lee Lucas).

    • JJ's son is born in this episode and she had named him Henry. She also asks Garcia and Reid to be his godparents.

    • From the newspapers clips it is revealed that Spencer Reid graduated from Caltech at age of 16 and received a doctorate degree there in mathematics at the age of 17. He also has an IQ of 187. One of Reid's dissertations was on "Identifying Non-obvious relationship factors using cluster weighted modeling and geographic regression." He started working for the BAU when he was 22.

    • When Reid discovers Morgan and Rossi have broken into his hotel room, they are watching The Young and the Restless on television. This show is the daytime drama on which Shemar Moore appeared from 1994-2002 as Malcolm Winters.

  • Quotes

    • Reid: Did dad like kids?
      Diana Reid: Well, yes. If it were up to him you would have a house full of brothers and sisters.
      Reid: So you didn't want more children?
      Diana Reid: Why would I mess with perfection? (winks)

    • Garcia: Ladies and gentlemen, I am not a doctor. I don't even play one on TV, but I believe young JJ is going into labor.

    • JJ: If anything should happen to us, it's up to you and Garcia to make sure that this boy gets into Yale.
      Reid: Ooh Yale, Yale. Do you wanna go to Yale, Henry? That was your godfather's safety school. Don't worry, I can get you into Caltech with one phone call.

    • Rossi: (discussing William Reid) He's keeping tabs on you. That's saying something.
      Reid: Yeah, he Googled me. That makes up for everything.

    • Hotchner: We went back 10 years. No questionable transactions that we could find.
      Prentiss: Well, he did buy a ticket to see Celine Dion six months ago, but I think we can overlook that.

    • Prentiss: I hate Vegas.
      Morgan: Come on, Prentiss, how can you hate Vegas? This is a grown folks' playground.

    • Woman at Bar: Hey, you won, like, two thousand dollars here.

    • Morgan: Yeah, talk to me, baby girl.
      Garcia: I'm not interrupting boy time at Crazy Horse Too, am I?

    • Prentiss: (after JJ goes into labor) Agent Todd, I hope you're ready, because your job starts right now.

    • Reid: My mind is sending me signals. I can't ignore them anymore.
