  • Quotes

    • Reid: (of Gideon's letter) Yeah, yeah, you know Gideon stood toe to toe with some of the… the sickest people on this planet. I mean it took a lot of courage, right?
      Prentiss: Yeah.
      Reid: So why'd he do this? (shows Prentiss the letter) It's addressed to me, but I'm not… I'm not the only one that he abandoned.
      : Why is it addressed to you? I think you need to read that letter again.
      Reid: I have an eidetic memory, Emily.
      Prentiss: Yeah, I know, and an IQ of 187. But what do you remember about your father?
      : What do you mean?
      Prentiss: He gave you 10 years before he left and yet you've erased all those memories. And it's too painful, I get it. But then Gideon leaves. I think you need to read that letter again and ask yourself why, of all the people, he walked away from… did he only explain himself to one person… you.
