  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Elle: (reading the headline) Stripping Bandit. That's terrible. That makes it sound like the bandit's doing the stripping.
      Reid: What would you call him?
      JJ: Pervert.
      Elle: Scumbag.
      Morgan: I'd call him an ass.
      Hotchner: Hey, focus, please.

    • Elle: (handing key to Morgan outside Sheppard's locked motel room) Key?
      Morgan: (getting ready to kick down the door) No, I got one.

    • Elle: (via phone to Morgan inside JJ's Paradise) Hardcore or not, you've got the wrong scumbag.

    • Haley: (via phone discussing Jack's medical condition) At home with my mom. I didn't want him here while we were talking. Look, I know this job is important to you, but we're important, too.
      Hotchner: You don't have to tell me that.
      Haley: I don't want you to wake up some day in some random city and realize that you don't know your own son.

    • Hotchner: How are we doing?
      Agent Wallace: Five minutes.
      Hotchner: Make it three.

    • Garcia: (after removing her high-heeled shoes from her aching feet) Why must your beauty be so painful?

    • Reid: An unsub who may or may not have had inside help.
      Gideon: I think it's time to talk to the bank manager.

    • Gideon: Save one life, we save the world.
      : Yeah. Well, there's one thing I didn't tell the trainees.
      Gideon: What's that?
      : We do not get paid enough.
      : You got that right.

    • Hotchner: It doesn't make sense, they're children.
      Gideon: He's playing out a fantasy.
      Hotchner: Yes, but it's his fantasy and it's someone else's children.

    • Garcia: Uh, pals, don't be ticked, but I think I may have missed the sort of glaringly obvious here. How would you make yourself taller without being a different person entirely or having some sort of weird Chinese surgery?

    • Hotchner: It took you nine minutes to call 9-1-1.
      Bill Henderson: I was collecting the tapes.
      Hotchner: Before you called 9-1-1?

    • Garcia: 'kay. I got access to four bank robberies with security footage. What do I get to do with them?
      Hotchner: You know your digital perspective whatever software?
      Garcia: Digital Perspective Analysis Rendering?
      Hotchner: Yeah.
      Garcia: Honey, not only do I know it, I helped develop it.

    • Gideon: Ready?
      Morgan: Let's go rob a bank.

    • Hotchner: "The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours, but... that this humiliation is seen by everyone." Milan Kundera.

    • Garcia: (Hotchner asks her to look at surveillance footage) Honey, if he opens his mouth, I'll tell you the length of his teeth.
      Hotchner: Just keep it clean. And don't call me "honey."

    • Hotchner: "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth." Oscar Wilde

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Reid comments there was a pilot program using psychodrama in the mid 1990s in the San Luis Obispo jail.
      A psychodrama program was in place between 1997-1999 for inmates in the San Luis Obispo County Jail where Leonard Manzella, a licensed clinical social worker, worked with prisoners with violence and drug problems. Manzella has consulted with many law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities and universities as well as the CBS Network.

    • The title of this episode alludes to a psychotherapeutic technique in which people are assigned roles to be played spontaneously within a dramatic context devised by a therapist in order to understand the behavior of people with whom they have difficult interactions.
