Antonia: How long have you been with the BAU?
JJ: Eleven years.
Antonia: Are you respected as much as Agent Hotchner?
JJ: Yes.
Slade: Really? You and he are treated exactly the same ?
JJ: Other than the fact that he's the head of the team, yes.
Antonia: Well, Agent Jareau, just in the short time we've been speaking, I can tell you're very capable and intelligent and I have no doubt in my mind that you are smarter than Agent Hotchner so therefore you should be head of the BAU. But you're not, are you? This world first and foremost sees you as a young attractive woman. Am I right? If I were you, I'd just stop worrying about being nice, and well-liked and just take charge.
JJ: But you're not me.
Antonia: No, unfortunately I'm not. I'm just old and withering on the vine and I can barely walk.

Criminal Minds Season 11 Episode 21 Quotes

Hotch: You sent the events of the last few days in motion for a reason.
Antonia: And you want me to tell you what it is.'re going to have prove you've got a little bit more going on than a fancy title and nice suits to deserve an answer.
Hotch: When you were 14, you missed almost a year of school, due to an unspecified illness. During the same year, a 15 year old boy on a neighbouring farm was killed in a hunting accident. I think these two events were related. You weren't ill, you were pregnant. And the neighbor boy was the father of your child. Your father, the German minister, the authoritarian, punished you for breaking the rules. He made you have the baby at home, and he murdered your boyfriend.
Antonia: Go on.
Hotch: At first we profiled you as an extreme narcissist, but that's just a cover up. You're actually full of self-loathing, and every time you killed a runaway teen, you were killing yourself or your boyfriend for lacking discipline.

There's a storm coming, Agent Hotchner. And you're about to be swept away.
