  • Quotes

    • Prentiss: Well, roadside motels definitely going on my list... (Reid stares blankly) …of things to never do again.
      Reid: You have a list?
      Rossi: You don't?

    • Rossi: I wonder if this place was ever nice.
      Hotchner: I was here. I talked to him and I didn't see it.
      Rossi: He made himself look like a good guy. You bought it. It happens… to the best of us. Welcome to the club.

    • Garcia: For the last two days I've been searching through VICAP for similar rapes and murders in cases that are still open. That has yielded me diddly squat. So I regrouped. I looked at some pictures of baby pandas, I went back in…

    • Garcia: (answering a call from Reid) I thought you forgot about me. It hurt.
      Reid: Garcia, what information do you have on Sherwood, Nevada? (Garcia rattles off the information on her screen)
      Hotchner: Garcia, can you send us a list of...
      Garcia: ...addresses and phone numbers. On its way, kind sir. Anything else I can do you for?
      Hotchner: Not for now.
      Reid: Thank you, Garcia.
      Garcia: You, my fine furry friends, are welcome.
      Hotchner: Remind me to have her drug-tested.

    • Morgan: Ma'am, we're trying to trace the steps of a couple that may've been here a few days ago.
      Betty: Darlin', I've waited on 87 folks since we opened this morning. Somebody'd have to come through here doing cartwheels on fire for me to remember.
      Prentiss: Would you take a look anyway, please?
      Betty: Huh. Well, I'll be. I do remember them.
      Morgan: Were they doing cartwheels?
      Betty: No, but I was. The lady left me a ten-dollar tip for breakfast... two days in a row.

    • Prentiss: I can't. I have a date.
      Morgan: You got a date? (Prentiss nods) With who?
      Prentiss: My hot tub.
      Morgan: Now that sounds like a party.
      Prentiss: You are so not invited. (Morgan slaps himself in the face).

    • Hotchner: Roman poet Phaedrus wrote, "Things are not always what they seem. The first appearance deceives many. The intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden."

    • Hotchner: Thomas Fuller wrote, "A fool's paradise is a wise man's hell."
