Hotch: All right that means we're the lead with hostage rescue and support. Let's go.
ジェットに乗って現地に移動。スペンサー達があの場所に行ったのは、全くの不運だった。サイラス率いるカルト集団は、6ヶ月にも及ぶ武器捜査の対象となっていた。現地にはジム・ウェルズ(Jim Wells)という地方検事がいたのだが、実施中の州の捜査はないとATF(The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives)に嘘の報告してきていた。彼は次の州知事選に出馬予定で、その目玉となる捜査をATFに横取りされると考えていたのだ。そのせいで二人は何も知らずに武装集団の中に飛び込んでしまった。
Garcia: Apparently libertarians do not like paying taxes. Derek: 17 years for tax evasion? Garcia: Oh, no. That would be 2 years for tax evasion and 15 for going after 4 IRS agents with a Louisville Slugger.
Cyrus: I prayed this day would never come. But it has. God will see us through.
Hotch: Dave, they've left the choice of negotiators up to me. I taught most of the hostage negotiation unit. Rossi: You want a recommendation? Hotch: I'm making you the lead negotiator. Rossi: Me? Hotch: Why go to the students when I have the teacher? Rossi: Because the teacher is emotionally involved. So is the agent in command. Hotch: I know I am. This is a unique situation. We have 2 agents who could affect the outcome on the inside. Rossi: True. But I can't be objective! I know them too well. Hotch: This outcome depends as much on our ability to predict the moves of Prentiss and Reid as Cyrus. That's why you're the best man for the job. Rossi: Assuming that Reid and Prentiss are still in a condition to make moves. Hotch: I know how bad this is. That's why I want you doing the talking.
Hotch: The only thing that you're in the position to demand is lawyer. Wells: Who the hell are you? Hotch: I'm Aaron Hotchner, unit chief. I'm the guy who's gonna tell the attorney general of the United States whether to charge you with obstructing a federal investigation or negligent homicide. Wells: You can't talk to me like that. Hotch: Get off my crime scene.
Rossi: We call this the "Minimal Loss scenario." Every person we get out is a life saved. We won't save them all. All of us have to be prepared to accept that situation. Derek: Cults are structured like pyramids. You got the leader at the top. Diehard believers beneath. The biggest group. The base... followers. Woman and children. These are the people we can save. Hotch: The "trickle, flow, gush" strategy is designed to get base followers out. First, one or two. Then 3 or 4. Then as many as we can as fast as we can. And if at any point it starts to go bad, we go in. Rossi: The leaders are charismatic sociopaths who target those most susceptible to their seduction. They have the ability to see what each person needs. And then they become that thing. We have to undermine their perception that we're an invading army laying siege to their home.
Rossi: I'd hoped you'd let me take the children. Cyrus: Nah, their our protection. I remember Waco. We all do. Rossi: This isn't Waco. Cyrus: They stay for now... while I pray for God's guidance. Please don't try to force us out. Rossi: No one's gonna try to force you out of here. Trust me. Cyrus: Trust is earned. Rossi: It is. Cyrus: Tell them I'm not crazy. Tell them I'm just a man living by God's law. Rossi: I will.
Cyrus: And god will wipe the tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death nor sorrow nor crying. And there will be no more pain. For all of the former things have passed away.
Spencer: I think he's just bluffing. Emily: Why do you think that? Spencer: Just after he told them about the poison, he waited for them to start to react. Then he nodded to Cole. And he started writing. Look. They're scanning the audience looking for reactions. Emily: They're writing down the names of the people who are crying. Spencer: It's a loyalty list. Emily: So he knows who will follow him to the end.
Derek: How does a kid like that get rid of you? Kane: One day he came to me and said God told him that I should leave the ranch. I said if god felt that way, God can tell me himself. He put a gun to my head and said, he just did. Took me 20 years to build that ranch. I'll do anything I can to help you seed that ungrateful son of a bitch straight to hell. Derek: I need a map.
Spencer: I can't tell you the number of times I've investigated abuse charges against small religious groups. Almost all of them turn out to be false. Mulgrew: What do you think of that? Spencer: Doesn't really matter what I think. Mulgrew: It does to me. Spencer: Why? Mulgrew: Because God wants to save you. I mean, that's why he sent you here. That's the reason.
Rossi: She came in with 2 child service workers to talk to the girls. Mulgrew: There's a good chance we can work this out, Dave. Rossi: I'm gonna provide another sign of good faith. You're doing a good thing here.
Spencer: They failed the test. They– they had a chance to prove their faith when Cyrus told them that they'd sacrifice themselves for god. But instead they showed they weren't worthy. That's why he wants the media to bare witness to your true final act of sacrifice. Christopher: How do you know that? Spencer:I'm always looking for signs of things to come. これもまたスペンサーからのメッセージであるとロッシは気づいた。"final act"とはこの行動が最後であると決めていることを指し、時間がない事を意味する。さらに"signs"により、スペンサーが突入の合図を求めていることも分かった。
Spencer: Jeremiah 29:11 &dnash; "I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to bring you hope and a future." Is blowing yourself up part of the prosperous future that god wants? Mulgrew: You think you know the word better than I? Spencer: No. I'm just demonstrating that you can use the Bible to manipulate anything. Mulgrew: Matthew 10:24 – "do not suppose that I've come to the earth to bring peace. I did not come to bring peace but a sword." You cannot convert my brothers. No one had to follow.
