When Walter Kern is in the women's home, after he says "speak again and I will kill you," the click of a gun is heard (the revolver he was holding). However, when the view switches to a side shot of him holding the gun to her head, the revolver is uncocked.
As Reid looks at the first word search puzzle left by the Keystone Killer, he notices many words that seem to have nothing to do with clues to the case, including false, fake, joke, decoy, mock, bait, delude, fools, pearl, see, clue, have, well, sos, thrilling, self, lure, ban, suffer and cad.
Reid refers to the unsub as he reads a medical report that says, "he lost mobility in his right side due to severed nerve damage to his spinal cord." A few minutes later we see this man using his right arm to attack his next victim while holding his left arm tight to his side as though it is useless to him.
Max Ryan: Is there anything worse than cop-shop coffee?
Gideon: Day-old cop-shop doughnuts.
Walter Kern: You know you've enjoyed this ride as much as I have, Max.
Max Ryan: I sure am enjoying this part.
Walter Kern: We are inseparable, you and me.
Max Ryan: Let's just test that theory, huh. Get him out of here.
Elle: What's the matter, Scotty? Can't deal with a woman who's not afraid of you?
Max Ryan: Aren't you going to present the profile?
Gideon: The team can handle it.
Max Ryan: The team. You're not worried about too many cooks?
Gideon: Remember "weapons of mass destruction"?
Ryan: What are you saying, I'm chasing a ghost?
Gideon: I'm saying sometimes we get it wrong.
Gideon: (to Max Ryan) Now you got an advantage. You got a team of the most incredible agents in the world out there, and you're standing here alone. If you let us, we'll help you catch him.
Max Ryan: As far as relaxing, the BAU doesn't employ too many agents with a relaxing type of mentality.
Morgan: (regarding Max Ryan) I heard he was forced into early retirement.
Hotchner: No, he chose to retire.
Reid: He's written a new book about the Keystone Killer case.
Hotchner: He moved to Philadelphia to be closer to the crime scene.
Elle: That's retirement?
Morgan: BAU style.
Morgan: (about the Keystone Killer) What? He got away?
Max Ryan: Would we have woken you up if we caught him?
Reid: What do you think of Ryan?
Hotchner: He hasn't changed much.
Reid: I think we can learn a lot from him.
Hotchner: What could you possibly learn that you don't already know?
Reid: Hotch, repetitive thinking is a death mill for the brain. For complete brain usage, diverse stimulation is the key.
Max Ryan: (reading second note) In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.
Gideon: He's quoting Sir Francis Bacon now.
Max Ryan: I used this specific quote in my...
Reid: ...in your book on page 184. I read it on the plane.
Max Ryan: And you remember the page number and the quote?
Morgan: Don't ask.
Morgan: So they've been here all night?
Elle: Where else would any of us be on a Saturday night? It's not like we have lives or anything.
Morgan: Speak for yourself.
Max Ryan: Miss me?
Max Ryan: Just here to buy a book then, huh?
Gideon: What can I say? Profilers...they fascinate me.
Gideon: Hmm...You look comfortable up there. Why don't you come back to the BAU for a guest lecture?
Max Ryan: I'm retired, remember?
Gideon: Hell of a way to relax... 323 pages on the one that got away.
Max Ryan: He hasn't gotten away... and you didn't count that eight-page prologue.
Gideon: Norman Maclean wrote, "It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us."
Elle: Abraham Lincoln once said,"Don't look at the years in your life, look at the life in your years."
The song at the end of this episode was "I Don't Wanna Know" by Sheryl Crow.
Morgan mentions that the Green River Killer didn't remember where he buried many of his victims. Gary Leon Ridgway confessed to murdering 48 women and disposing of their bodies in the Portland and Seattle areas. He is quoted to have had trouble remembering all his victims. He did remember leaving them in "clusters" so he could drive around the areas and relive his crimes.
Max Ryan: You're not worried about too many cooks?
Ryan was referring to the old saying, "Too many cooks spoil the broth," which means having too many people involved can ruin a recipe because they each want to put something of their own in. Sometimes having too many people with too many different ideas can muddle an investigation, but that does not seem to happen with the BAU team.
Reid mentions the first women killed by Ted Bundy "looked like his fiancée."
Bundy's fiancée was an attractive young woman with long brown hair and so were many of his victims. His relationship with her ended shortly before his killing spree began. Bundy was executed in California in 1989.
Reid: "Who among us has not probed the black water?"
Reid correctly identified this quote as being from John Steinbeck's novel East of Eden. Steinbeck is an American author wrote many well-known books such as The Red Pony and The Grapes of Wrath.
While giving his presentation at the book signing, Ryan refers to "Son of Sam," an infamous serial killer named David Falco Berkowitz. He murdered six people and wounded others during the late 1970s. Berkowitz wrote letters to the media about his killings and was later caught and sentenced to 365 years in prison. The "Son of Sam Laws" were created as a result of his crimes and their aftermath.
