Bookend Quotes[]

  • Maeve Donovan and Spencer Reid: E. E. Cummings: "Whenever you think or you believe or you know, you’re a lot of other people: but the moment you feel, you’re nobody-but-yourself. To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
  • Penelope Garcia: My favorite band said, "The love you take is equal to the love you make."


  • It would be physically impossible for JJ to ignite to BAU jet's fuel tank by shooting at its leaking fuselage with a flare gun as shown in the episode. This was proven in an episode of Mythbusters.
    • This may have, however, been inspired by the climax of the action thriller Die Hard 2, where a similar event happens, albeit with the use of a cigarette lighter.
