Episode Quotes

Dr. Spencer Reid: Dance with me.
Cat Adams: Why?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Because I don't want the people watching us to hear what I'm going to say next;

Jennifer Jareau: [on her phone in the observation room] You guys got this up?
Penelope Garcia: [at the BAU] Streaming now.
Jennifer Jareau: Okay. Uh, listen, you're... you're gonna hear a lot of weird stuff, like Spence saying he is the father of Cat's baby. Don't let that distract you.
Penelope Garcia: Uh, I'm sorry. Full stop. Why would Reid say he's the father of...
Emily Prentiss: Quiet.
Dr. Spencer Reid: So, the same game as last time? I ask every question you ask honestly?
Cat Adams: No, this time you get to ask the questions.
Dr. Spencer Reid: About what?
Cat Adams: Well, I know a secret. About you. And you can ask me as many questions as you like to figure it out. But you only get one guess as to what it is. Now, guess correctly, I take your phone, I call our friend Lindsey, and I tell her to release your mother unharmed. If you don't...

Dr. Spencer Reid: Is there a clock?
Cat Adams: There's always a clock.

Cat Adams: Give it to me.

Cat Adams: Now, you'll have four hours.

Cat Adams: Not yet. You have to wait 'till the second hand comes around.
Dr. Spencer Reid: You want to give me a hint before we start?
Cat Adams: Do I look like a girl that gives hints?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Actually, you do.
Cat Adams: Okay, how about this? It's a secret you'll never admit to.
Penelope Garcia: Of all the heroes I have met, and I have met a lot of heroes, you, Derek "Chocolate Thunder" Morgan, are the most heroic. Ohh...

Penelope Garcia: That's for you.

Penelope Garcia: This is for Hank.

Penelope Garcia: And Savannah. This one is for you again. Oh, speaking of Hank, if you leave right now, you'll... you'll get home before he wakes up.
Derek Morgan: No, actually, I told Savannah I was gonna catch a later flight. I reached out to Reid for real. I wanna see him; I gotta see him. So I'm gonna bring him some breakfast and make sure him and his mom are okay.
