Criminal Minds (2005–) is an American CBS television show about an elite squad of FBI profilers that analyzes the country's most twisted criminal minds and anticipates their next move before they strike again.


Season 1[edit]

Extreme Aggressor [1.1][edit]

Gideon: Joseph Conrad said, "The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary. Men alone are quite capable of every wickedness."

Hotchner: This is Special Agent Spencer Reid.
Gideon: Doctor Reid.
Hotchner: Dr. Reid, our expert on...well, everything.

Hotchner: This is Dr. Reid.
Heather’s Brother: Doctor? You seem too young to have gotten into medical school...
Reid: They're PhD's, three of them.
Heather’s Brother: Are you a genius or something?
Reid: I don’t believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory and can read 20,000 words per minute. [gets a weird look] Yes, I’m a genius.

Gideon: "Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
Reid: Samuel Beckett.
Morgan: "Try not. Do, or do not."
Reid: Yoda.

Garcia: You've reached Penelope Garcia in the FBI's office of supreme genius.
Morgan: Hey it's Morgan. I need you to work me some magic here. I got a program called Deadbolt Defense and a girl with only a couple hours to live. So what do you know?
Garcia: Then you've got a problem. Deadbolt's the number one password crack resistant software out there. You're going to have to get inside this guy's head to get the password.
Morgan: I thought I was calling the office of supreme genius.
Garcia: Well gorgeous you've been rerouted to the office of too frickin' bad.

Compulsion [1.2][edit]

Gideon: Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited; imagination encircles the world."

Elle: Chemical accelerant could mean chemistry student.
Reid: It could also mean chemistry professor.
Elle: I say student. You need self-confidence to lecture in front of a classroom full of 30 college kids. Arsonists are socially incompetent. This guy doesn’t go on dates, doesn’t go to parties, doesn’t feel comfortable in front of groups. [Reid looks at Elle, realizing he fits the description] And of course he’s a total psychopath.
Reid: Of course.

Garcia: Okay, you know how on Star Trek when Captain Kirk asked McCoy to do something totally impossible and McCoy says, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a miracle worker!"?
Morgan: Hey, what are you telling me? Not to expect a miracle?
Garcia: No, I'm saying I'm not a doctor.
Morgan: That's my girl.

Elle: Well, what is the most sinful place on campus?
Morgan: Come on, Elle, when I was in college it was everywhere.

Patrol Guy: You’re one of those FBI guys. A profiler, right? Like, one look at the crime scene you can tell what kind of shampoo a killer uses.
Gideon: You’re a bit skeptical.
Patrol Guy: Maybe a little.
Gideon': Your girlfriend thinks you’re going to break up with her.
Patrol Guy: You’re kidding, right?
Gideon: Well, you keep adjusting your necklace. That tells me you're not used to wearing one or somebody else probably bought it for you, bought it recently, and the Chinese symbol on it means "forever yours."
Gideon': You broke up with her. No more necklace.
Patrol Guy: Yeah, I kinda wanted to date someone else.
Gideon: What's her name?
Patrol Guy: Brian
Gideon: Oh. Well, that's... That's a pretty good reason.

Won't Get Fooled Again [1.3][edit]

Gideon: Samuel Johnson wrote, "Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble."

Elle: I may have something. Barbara Keller was having some trouble insuring some coins she bought. The insurance company thought they might be fake.
Hotchner: So the insurance company is blowing up annoying clients?

Morgan: My bomb fragments- let’s start putting this bad boy together.
Garcia: Why bother, don’t you just dust for prints and...stuff?
Morgan: [chuckling] Garcia, what are you doing in the FBI?
Garcia: I didn’t get into medical school.
Morgan: Why does that not surprise me?
Garcia: [punches Morgan] Ouch. That's what my father said.
Morgan: Now pay attention!
Garcia: Aww. It's like school!
Morgan: What you think it's bull? Seriously the way that they put these together can tell us something about the UnSub! I mean the Unabomber always put something wooden in his bombs. It's their singature...I mean they think that they're artists or something! The sign their work!
Garcia: Now you sound like Gideon!
Morgan: [punches her shoulder lightly] Okay. Ouch!

Garcia: Signature behavior! If Walker got tips from Bale about bomb making then he may have told him how to steer clear of the police!
Morgan: Uh-uh! Someone's been taking notes!
Garcia: Medical school, schmedical school!
Morgan: Don't hurt yourself Garcia!

Hotch: I spent a good chunk of my childhood looking for a 1944 penny worth thousands.
[everyone stares]
Hotch: Yes, I was a little bit of a nerd, is that so surprising?
Elle: Not to me...

Plain Sight [1.4][edit]

Gideon: French poet Jacques Rigaut said, "Don't forget that I cannot see myself. That my role is limited to being the one who looks in the mirror."

Morgan: Why the Tommy Killer?
Hotchner: You know the rock opera? Well, this unsub glues his victim's eyes wide open.
Reid: He wants them to see him.
Gideon: And feel him.

Morgan: I hate not having a plan. We’re looking for a needle in a haystack.
Reid: Actually, it’s more like we’re looking for a needle in a pile of needles.
Morgan: What?
Reid: A needle would stand out in a haystack.
Morgan: [chuckling] Okay, then we're not looking for someone who stands out.
Reid: No, we're looking for a particular needle, in a pile of needles.
[Morgan gives him a look while he's busy looking through binoculars]

Reid: Do you think it's weird that I knew that ballad?
Elle: Reid, I don't know how you know half the stuff you know, but I'm glad you do.
Reid: Do you think that's why I can't get a date?
Elle: Have you ever asked anyone?
Reid: [Reid shifts his eyes] No.
Elle: That's why you can't get a date.

Gideon: Rose Kennedy once said, "Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them."

Broken Mirror [1.5][edit]

Gideon: Euripides said, "When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good must suffer with him."

[after seeing another agent flirt with Morgan and girls stare at him]
Reid: Must be tough, man.
Morgan: [laughs] Not really.
Reid: What do you mean? You don't DO anything and these women are throwing themselves at you.
Morgan: Strictly off limits, Reid.
Reid: There's no code of conduct that says agents can't socialize.
Morgan: See, my code of survival says never mess with a woman who carries a gun.

Reid: I don't know everything. I mean, despite the fact that you think that I do.
Morgan: I never said that. When have I ever said that?
Reid: Every day since I met you.
Elle: This morning at breakfast.
Hotchner: Yesterday when he beat you at cards, um, we've got one minute.
Morgan: Anybody ever heard of sarcasm?
Elle and Reid: Mmhm.

Mr. Davenport: [talking to Reid] Excuse me, c-can you actually read that fast?
Reid: Our conscious mind can process sixteen bits of information per second; our unconscious, however, can process eleven million.
[Mr. Davenport glances between Gideon and Reid with a nervous look]
Reid: Yes, I- I really can read this fast.

Elle: [regarding Cheryl, claiming that she can feel when something is wrong with her twin] You think Cheryl's a whackjob because she claims she can feel her sister's anxiety?
Morgan: I never said whackjob.
[Reid walks in]
Reid: Actually, there may be a physiological basis for it.
Morgan: Don't ask.
Reid: Reversed egg symmetry, monozygotic eggs split late between nine to twelve days, the DNA matches right down to the very last stranded code. There are sporadic documents of shared physiological pain.
Morgan: And you believe it?
Reid: No. I'm just saying it's possible.

L.D.S.K. [1.6][edit]

Elle: Reid failed his qualification.
Gideon: He can retest in two weeks.
Elle: Yeah, but he's gonna be embarrassed, so let's not mention it.
Gideon: Yeah, let's not.
Morgan: Not a word. [Reid enters the room] Hey, We're all here for you. I'm serious. If you ever need anything… [places a whistle around Reid's neck and blows on it] …just blow on that.

Philip Dowd: What kind of FBI agent doesn't carry a gun?
Reid: I'm a profiler
Philip Dowd: Profiler, huh? They sent you to figure me out?
Reid: We did, that's how we found you.
Hotch: Shut up, Reid.

Hotch: You know why they took away Boy Genius' gun?
Philip Dowd: Why?
Hotch: He failed his qualification. Twice a year I gotta listen to him whine about re-qualifying, so I tutored him, and he fails again.
Philip Dowd: You think you got it rough? These people have done nothing but undermine me since I got here.
Hotch: Put him next to the barricade. That way, when they blast their way in, both of our problems are solved. That sort of thing could ruin a cop's career.
Philip Dowd: You are one sick dude.
Hotch: How do you think I found you?

Hothchner: [about a head shot Reid accomplished] Nice shot.
Reid: I was aiming for his leg.
Hotchner: Well, I wouldn't have kept kicking, but I was afraid you didn't get my plan.
Reid: I got your plan the minute you moved the hostages out of my line of fire.
Hotchner: Well, I hope I didn't hurt you too badly.
Reid: Hotch, I was a twelve year-old child prodigy in a Las Vegas public high school. You kick like a nine year-old girl. [tries to return the gun]
Hotchner: No, keep it. As far as I'm concerned, you passed your qualification.

Gideon: This is going to hit you, and when it does, there's only three facts you need to know: You did what you had to do, and a lot of good people are alive because of what you did.
Reid: What's the third?
Gideon: I'm proud of you.

The Fox [1.7][edit]

Gideon Dr. Thomas Fuller wrote,"With foxes we must play the fox."

Gideon: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
Morgan: Sherlock Holmes was a fictional character

JJ: [discussing Hotch's newborn baby] He's so gorgeous.
Haley: Thank you.
Reid: You find baldness and wrinkles attractive?

Reid: Nobody gets therapy these days without a healthy dose of medication.
Garcia: What are you implying, Reid?
Reid: That everyone is medicated.
Garcia: Did you just make a joke?
Reid: No, I mean, statistics, they-they show it–
Garcia: Reid, next time just say yes.

Reid: Are you hacking into the government's HMO database? Is that legal?
Garcia: Of course not. We'll both go to prison and you'll be someone's bitch.
Reid: Really?

Natural Born Killer [1.8][edit]

Gideon: Hemingway wrote, "There is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else.”

Hotchner: You were just responding to what you learned, Vincent. When you grow up in an environment like that, an extremely abusive and violent's not surprising that some people grow up to become killers.
Vincent: Some people?
Hotchner: What's that?
Vincent: You said some people grow up to become killers.
Hotchner: ...And some people grow up to catch them.

[Garcia enters the room with a cardboard box.]
Morgan: Please tell me you brought some breakfast.
Garcia: Trust me, sugar. You're not going to want to eat when you see what's in here.

Elle: Can you get into those records?
Reid: Despite the fact that they were probably expunged, she can find the faintest echo of deletion, successfully recreate the file, thereby sending us all to prison for computer felony fraud counts.
[Elle and Garcia share a weird look]
Elle: We can make bail.

Hotchner: Paranoid personalities develop in childhood.
Vincent Perotta: You know, you just saved me thousands of dollars in therapy bills.

Derailed [1.9][edit]

Gideon: Robert Oxton Bolton once wrote, "A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind."

Reid: [to Dr. Bryer] The voices, they helped you right? While the other kids were outside in the playground, you were inside studying, reading, learning. The voices wouldn't stop. They helped you understand things that other people couldn't realize. Then, as you grew older, it became almost a responsibility, right? A responsibility to use that ability, to use your knowledge.

Elle: [complaining] Gideon, will you tell him that I don't need to go to the hospital?
Gideon: Regulations are regulations. You're all right?
Elle: Yeah, I'm fine, 'dad.'
Gideon: Elle?
Elle: Yeah?
Gideon: Don't ever call me 'dad' again. [walks away]
Elle: [to Reid] What do you think he'd feel about 'mom?'
Reid: Let me know when you're going to do that so I can run.

Morgan: And remember, play into the guy's fantasy, believe it yourself.
Reid: Actually, did you know that dentists and surgeons have been secretly recruited to implant these during otherwise normal medical procedures? This has been happening on and off since the late 1930s. [Morgan looks at him] Told me to believe.

Reid: I need something to wake me up.
Morgan: Ooh, late night?
Reid: Very.
Morgan: My man!
Reid: Not that kind of late night!

Morgan: So tell me, what does keep young Dr. Reid awake at night? Wait, let me guess. Memorizing some obscure textbook? No, no, no. Working on cold fusion? No, I got it, I got it, I got it. Watching Star Trek and laughing at the physics mistakes.
Reid: Actually, there aren't that many scientific errors in Star Trek. Especially considering how long ago it was made. There are certain improbabilities, but not that many outright errors.
Morgan: Right.

Reid: Melted wax?
JJ: Candle wax?
Reid: Candles are used in rituals.
Gideon: They're also used on birthday cakes.

Haley was my best friend since we were in high school. We certainty had our struggles but, if there's one thing we agreed on unconditionally, it was our love and commitment to our son Jack. Haley's love for Jack was joyous and fierce. That fierceness is why she isn't here today. A mother's love is an unrivaled force of nature and we can all learn much from the way Haley lived her life. Haley's death causes each of us to stop and take stock of our lives, to measure who we are and what we've become. I don't have all those answers for myself, but I know who Haley was. She was the woman who died protecting the child we brought into this world together, and I will make sure that Jack grows up knowing who his mother was and how she loved and protected him, and how much I loved her. If Haley were with us today she would ask us not to mourn her death, but to celebrate her life. She would tell us... she would tell us to love our families unconditionally and to hold them close because in the end they are all that matter. I met Haley at the tryouts of our high school's production of the 'Pirates of Penzance'. I found our copy of the play and I was looking through it the other night, and I came upon a passage that seemed appropriate for this moment. "Oh dry the glistening tear, that dews that marshal cheek, thy loving children hear, in them thy comfort seek, with sympathetic care, their arms around thee creep, for oh they cannot bear, to see their father weep."
