Season 5 Quotes
|Season 5 / Episode 7: - The Performer|
Emily Prentiss: [voiceover] writer Cyril Connolly said: Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.
|Season 5 / Episode 13: - Risky Business|
Dr. Spencer Reid: [Watching Prentiss play with a wooden toy puzzle] What is that?
Emily Prentiss: It's called a 'star puzzle'. It's basically impossible to figure out.You have to put all of the pieces back together to form a perfect star. But the origin of it is, um, kind of a romantic tale. [She abandons the puzzle to explain as the rest of the team stops what they're doing to listen] There was this young prince who wanted to win the heart of the fairest maiden in the land, so he climbed to the top of the tallest tower in the kingdom and he caught a falling star for her. Unfortunately, he was so excited that he dropped it and it smashed into all of these pieces. So he frantically put it back together again to prove his undying love to her and he succeeded and they lived happily ever after.
Dr. Spencer Reid: That doesn't make any sense.
Emily Prentiss: What do you mean?
Dr. Spencer Reid: You can't catch a falling star. It would burn up in the atmosphere.
Emily Prentiss: Yeah, but it's not literal, Reid, it's a fable.
Dr. Spencer Reid: But there's no moral. Uh, fables have morals.
Emily Prentiss: Okay, so it's just a romantic little story. [Reid picks up the pieces and begins assembling it] And the point is, it's basically impossible to do because you have to take all of those pieces and fit them together exactly - [Reid sets the completed star on the table] There's a lot to hate about you, Dr. Reid.
