There is a blood stain on Hotch's shirt sleeve before he shoots and cuffs the unsub.
When the unsub is shot by Hotch, he has a small beard. In the ambulance in the next shot, he is clean shaven.
It is revealed in this episode that Hotch and Haley named their son Jack.
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?
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.
Hotchner: Yeah. Well, there's one thing I didn't tell the trainees.
Gideon: What's that?
Hotchner: We do not get paid enough.
Gideon: 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?
Garcia: Honey, not only do I know it, I helped develop it.
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
The song playing at the children's party scene near the end of the episode was "Our Lips Are Sealed" by Hilary and Haylie Duff.
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.
