Criminal Minds – 1.06

Hotch: You know why they took away Boy Genius’ gun?
Philip Dowd: Why?
Hotch: He failed his qualification. Twice a year I gotta listen to him whine about requalifying so I tutored him, and he fails again.
Philip Dowd: You think you got it rough? These people have done nothing but undermine me since I got here.
Hotch: Go next to the barricade. That way when they blast their way in both of our problems are solved. You could ruin a cop’s career.
Philip Dowd: You are one sick dude.
Hotch: How do you think I found you?
Hotch: (to Dowd) Can I ask you a favor?
Philip Dowd: You could ask.
Hotch: I figure the chances of my getting out of here alive are pretty slim.
Philip Dowd: So?
Hotch: (about Reid) Will you let me kick the snot out of this kid? He’s made my life miserable for three lousy years.
Philip Dowd: Knock yourself out.
(much later)
Hotchner: Well, I wouldn’t have kept kicking you, I was afraid you didn’t get my plan.
Reid: I got your plan the minute you moved the hostages out of my line of fire.
Hotchner: Well I hope I didn’t hurt you too badly.
Reid: Hotch, I was a twelve year old child prodigy in a Las Vegas public high school. You kick like a nine year old girl.
