CBS’s series Criminal Minds started its second season Wednesday, and I’m pleased to report that it’s just as obsessed with quotations as before. I was also pleasantly surprised that the bizarre puzzle created by the kidnapper actually had a solution—some enterprising folks on the net even figured it out between seasons.
Since I’ve written about the show before, we get many questions each time an episode airs about the quotations used in the show. I’ll try to keep up this season and post them every week. Here are the quotations from Season 2 episode 1:
I haven’t verified the source of either of these, but they appear here exactly as read on the show.
While I’m answering questions, the song played at the end of the episode was “The Riddle” by Five for Fighting, and the Chaucer poem that the kidnapper quoted from was The Parliament of Fowls. Any American TV show that quotes La Rochefoucauld and Chaucer in the same episode is worth watching in my book.
