Criminal Minds Characters quotes

Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: My team, let me tell you about my team. Agent Morgan fought to protect his identity from the very people who could save him. Why, because trust has to be earned, and there are very few people he truly trusts. Reid's intellect is a shield which protects him from his emotions, and at the moment his shield is under repair. Prentiss overcompensates because she doesn't yet feel she's part of the team, she needn't worry. Every day Agent Jareau fields dozens of requests for our team, and every night she goes home hoping she made the right choices. Garcia fills her office with figurines and color, to remind herself to smile as the horror fills her screens. And Agent Gideon in many ways is damned by his profound knowledge of others, which is why he shares so little of himself, yet he pours his heart into every case we handle.
Dr. Spencer Reid: [after Hotch throws him a folder] What's this?
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: You told me you were cleared to travel. You lied.
Emily Prentiss: Naughty boy.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Uh, *no* I *didn't.* I *am* a doctor, so *technically* it wasn't a lie.
Penelope Garcia: What was it then?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Um... second opinion?
Penelope Garcia: Hmm. You're my bitch now. [leaves the room as Morgan chuckles]
Evan Davenport: Excuse me, can you actually read that fast?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Our conscious minds can process sixteen bits of
information per second. Our unconscious, however, can process
eleven million. [Mr. Davenport looks at Reid] Yes, I can actually
read this fast.
Jason Gideon: [Hotch is commenting about Garcia to Gideon] Garcia?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Penelope...? The tech with the glasses...?
Jason Gideon: The room... the one with all the screens?
Jason Gideon: I like her. Shes great.
Penelope Garcia: [answering call] Office of Unfettered Omniscience -
how may I help you, O fortunate one?
GUY: You really think this is only one guy huh?
REID: The level of overkill suggests an unsub in a psychotic break. Multiple unsubs in violent psychotic breaks operating in the exact same location is exceedingly unlikely.
MORGAN: Yeah, it's probably one guy.
AARON HOTCHNER: This is Special Agent Gideon, Special Agent Morgan, our expert on obsessional crimes, Special Agent Reid.
JASON GIDEON: (clarifies) Doctor Reid.
AARON HOTCHNER: Dr. Reid, our expert on, well, everything..
DEREK MORGAN: Reid. You're good with this? We've got a woman who's only got a few hours left to live, an incomplete profile, and a unit chief on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
JASON GIDEON: They don't call them nervous breakdowns anymore.
DR. SPENCER REID: It's called a major depressive episode.
DEREK MORGAN: I know, Reid.
HOTCHNER: He also started leaving messages at the fourth scene. (He shows the photo to Elle.) This was on the mirrors.
HOTCHNER: (reads) Fair lady, throw those costly robes aside. No longer may you glory in your pride. Take leave of all your carnal, vain delight.
REID: (finishes) I've come to summon you away this night.
REID: Uh ... It's a ballad from the late 1600s. A dialogue betwixt death and a lady.
ELLE: A 17th century ballad?
REID: Yeah. Essentially, a woman begging death to live.
ELLE: What kind of person knows this ballad? Are we looking for a literature professor?
REID: Anyone with an Internet connection, actually. You should see what comes in when you type the word "death" into a search engine.
MORGAN: Reid, no wonder you can't get a date.
REID: It's a man. The male pelvis is more narrow, and the opening at the bottom is heart-shaped, as opposed to oval.
REID: Melted wax?
JJ: Candle wax?
REID: Candles are used in rituals.
GIDEON: They're also used on birthday cakes.
REID: Actually, they were originally used to protect the birthday celebrant from demons for the coming year. As a matter of fact, down to the fourth century, Christianity rejected the birthday celebration as a pagan ritual.
Derek Morgan: Hey silly girl. I love you, you know that, right?
Penelope Garcia: I love you too.
Derek Morgan: Easy there tough guy. Have some coffee with your sugar.
Dr. Spencer Reid: I need something to wake me up.
Derek Morgan: Ooh, late night?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Very.
Derek Morgan: My man!
Dr. Spencer Reid: Not that kind of late night!
