    • Reid: That's why I stick to Beethoven. There's no chance of guilt by association.
      Prentiss: Well… yeah? Have you ever seen a movie called A Clockwork Orange?
      Prentiss is referring to the 1971 Stanley Kubrick film based on the Anthony Burgess novel which detailed the exploits of a psychopathic young man and his later programming by the government. Both parts of his life prominently featured Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D Minor Op. 125.
