Main Characters in this Episode
Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau: Legendary basketball coach John Wooden said, "It's not so important who starts the game, but who finishes it."
Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau: Hi, Polly. My name is JJ. I grew up in East Allegheny, just right up the road. I was captain of the varsity soccer team my senior year. Got me a scholarship to Pittsburgh. Well, it's a pretty good school, but... it's not exactly Penn State. I know that's where you're going, 'cause your mom told me. You know, your mom carried a picture of you all the way up to the FBI academy in Quantico, Virginia, so that me and these agents here could help find you. And, believe me, she was not leaving until we said we'd come. So no matter what happened over the past six days... no matter what, this... will all be a memory some day, but you will always have a mother that loves you that much.
