    This for me has been one of the top episodes of this season, if not of the entire run. Personally I have never watched Kudjo or any other rabies themed show before and man alive made for some genuinely uncomfortable viewing. The female victim scared the bejesus out of me but at the same time I felt awful for her and what she was being put through. The story line was creative and strong enough that it drowned out the suddenly popular "personal issue of the week" nonesense. I am pleased that they can still be so inventive when they put the effort in. I do love this show but am not niaeve enough to notice it's not as solid as it once was. More intensive old skool episodes like this are a must, greater focus on a well written and played story.moreless

    • (Reid and Garcia, exhausted, complain to Morgan after the fit test.)
      Morgan: All right. All right. All right. Enough is enough. I guess I got to let the cat out of the bag. I kind of already had your fit test waived.
      Reid: What!?
      Morgan: Baby girl, think about it. You're not even in the field. Hey, Pretty Ricky. You already got enough case hours to qualify. This was just a good time for me.
      Garcia: I'm gonna kill him.
      Reid: If I can manage to lift my arms. I can hold him down. (They both chase Morgan around the field.)

    • Reid: (Stretching before taking the Fit test.) Do you think they'd really terminate us if we can't run fast enough?
      Garcia: No. Probably something worse. They'd make us take another Fit test.
      Reid: I'd rather be terminated.
      Garcia: I just hope the PT instructor isn't a jerk. Those jock guys are always such jerks.
      Reid: Yeah, total jerks. That's probably him right now.
      Garcia: Oh look. He's totally walking like a jerk.
      Reid:That's a total jerk walk. Wait a minute. I think that's Morgan. Yeah.
      Garcia: Oh my god, it is.
      (Morgan walks up to them.)
      Garcia: Why are you here?
      Morgan: It looks like I'm your new PT instructor. Watkins got sick. So today's your lucky day. I'm your guy.
      Garcia: Awesome. That's awesome.
      Morgan: Guys. Guys come on. Seriously. You should have just said something. This whole Fit test thing is just a formality. I could have got the whole thing waived. (Reid and Garcia look at each other in disappointment.)

    • Morgan: It took us almost two hours to get out here.
      JJ: And that's with you driving too.

    • (Garcia arrives at the office after working out with Reid.)
      Morgan: You okay?
      Garcia: Yeah why?
      Morgan: Because you got a little gimp in your giddyup.
      Garcia: Uh, it's the shoes. Beauty knows no pain.
      Morgan: Whoa whoa whoa. Wait a minute. (Morgan sniffs Garcia.)
      Garcia: What are you doing?
      Morgan: Do I smell Bengay?
      Garcia: Maybe. I had an active evening with Sam.

    • (Garcia and Reid finish running a mile at the track and are out of breath.)
      Garcia: 8:49. Good God, that's not even close. Why does it have to be such a fast mile? Have you ever had to run a mile in the field?
      Reid: No.
      Garcia: I'm not even in the field. I sit at a computer on my perfect posterior. Like, all day.
      Reid: Maybe we should ask Morgan for help.
      Garcia: No!
      Reid: But he has really good abs.
      Garcia: Yes he does. But it's bad enough some bureaucrat is making us take this stupid test. The last thing we need is Mr. Universe talking smack the whole time.
      Reid: But he knows all the stuff. He can probably, like, teach us some tricks, help us train.
      Garcia: Yeah, but he takes it way too seriously. I worked out with him once.
      Reid: You worked out? That's cool.
      Garcia: Yeah. In a non traditional manner. And never again with him. He was all "You gotta move, baby girl. Move it or lose it they say. You say you're high tech? Well my grandmama can move better than that."
      Reid: He can be enthusiastic at times.
      Garcia: Well, that's one way of saying it.
