Criminal Minds Season 11 Episode 18: "A Beautiful Disaster" Quotes
Morgan: What's up, what have we got?
Hotch: You can't investigate this.
Morgan: Excuse me?
Hotch: You're a material witness in your wife's shooting and a target. And not just tonight but for the past six months.
Reid: When you first told me about Savannah, I'd never seen you like that. The decreased levels of central serotonin in your brain causing intrusive thinking. When I finally saw you guys together, that's when I knew for sure. Your pupils dilated, your posture changed, and I saw you involuntarily reach for her hand. Science confirmed you found the one. Do you believe that?
Reid: Then believe this: our team loves you, and we are not going to stop until we find whoever did this. But we can only do that with a completely dispassionate and unprejudiced point of view. Paternal instinct is a deadly bias that we just can't risk. It's for your protection Morgan, I swear.
Morgan: The Unsub is a father isn't he?
Reid: Why do you say that?
Morgan: A paternal instinct is a deadly bias. Those were your exact words.
Reid: I meant---
Morgan: I know what you meant, but that's what you said.
Morgan: Hotch know you're here?
JJ: I don't agree with taking you off the case. When someone hurts one of us, when someone hurts a baby.....
JJ: Yeah. I'm going to show this to the team, but I wanted you to see it first. I found it in the payphone he used to call Garcia.
Morgan: [reading the note] How does it feel? Do you see red? I see red.
Hotch: The note. "Seeing red." What does it mean?
Morgan: I don't know. You're looking for micro-expressions.
Hotch: You've divided this team when we need to work together. JJ disobeyed orders by going to you, and now you're withholding.
Morgan: I didn't divide this team. You did.
Hotch: Where is he?
Morgan: He's not going to stop.
Hotch: Morgan, tell me where he is.
Morgan: I can't get anyone else hurt.
Hotch: This isn't your call.
Morgan: Come on. You have to know what I'm feeling right now!
Hotch: That's why you either need to come back here, or tell me where you're going.
Morgan: I can't do it. I'm sorry, man. Goodbye Aaron.
Montolo: I'll tell you what I believe. You killed my son.
Montolo: You're the last person that saw him alive.
Morgan: Yes I was, but someone else poisoned him.
Montolo: How did he end up in prison?
Morgan: I arrested him. I didn't kill him.
Montolo: That's your belief. Mine is that you killed my flesh and blood, and have no idea what that feels like.....yet!
Garcia: I've got Morgan.
Morgan: Are you all there?
Hotch: Yeah, we're here. Are you all right?
Morgan: He's got a gun with two bullets. Listen to me. I made a decision tonight that lead me to this. This is my fault, you understand? No one else's. And if this is how it ends, it was meant to be.
Garcia: Don't say that.
Morgan: Promise me you'll look after Savannah and my baby.
Garcia: Of course we will. So will you. [gunshot rings out]
Morgan: My team was never in danger.
Montolo: You don't know that.
Morgan: This house doesn't have a landline.
It's a boy!Morgan
Morgan: I know you hate goodbyes, kid. And change. Hey, it isn't always a bad thing.
Reid: I just can't imagine this room without you.
Morgan: So don't. Don't think about it. Just know I'm always going to be by your side. I'm just a phone call away. I'm sorry I can't stay.
Reid: I don't want you to stay, because I know why you're leaving and I couldn't be happier for you.
Morgan: Well listen, we were going to mail these, but I wanted you to have a birth announcement first.
Reid: Hank Spencer Morgan.
Morgan: Yeah. Hank is for my pops. But Spencer is for the best little brother anybody could ever ask for. I love you, kid.
Reid: I love you.
As a good friend of mine said, every ending is also a beginning. We just don't know it at the time. I'd like to believe she's right.Morgan
