  • Trivia

    • When Morgan follows Tony Canardo to arrest him, Morgan's shoes are clearly black leather boots of some type.  As Morgan and Tony begin rolling around on the ground, Tony is wearing black leather (motorcycle) boots and Morgan is still wearing black leather boots.  Yet as the green tent falls upon both of them, for a brief moment one can see Morgan is now wearing white leather sneakers.

      After the fight is over and both Morgan and Tony are in the house, they are wearing their respective black leather boots.

    • When Morgan is walking from his car to arrest Tony Canardo, his holster is on his right hip. In the next shot, his holster is on his left and his gun is in his left hand. In the next shot, the holster and gun are both back on the right side.

    • Over the course of the episode, the only time Reid put on glasses was when he needed to read or examine something up close. However, during the second half of the episode, when he put on the glasses to examine the photographs of the victims, he didn't bother taking them off again.

  • Quotes

    • Reid: Wow. She obviously did nothing to protect Amber from the abuse. She... she feels betrayed by her mother and now receives extreme sadistic pleasure in watching the same thing that happened to her. Strange. In this case, the abused actually became the abuser.
      Garcia: That doesn't happen a lot?
      Reid: One in eight.
      Garcia: We found the one.

    • Gideon: Mark Twain wrote, "Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it."

    • Hotchner: Philosopher Kahlil Gibran wrote, "Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars."
