Once again, here are the quotations featured in last week’s episode of the CBS crime drama Criminal Minds.

Every week, we bring you the quotations used in the CBS crime drama Criminal Minds. Here’s the one from the beginning of this week’s episode:
The show used the word “prize” rather than “throne,” which I’m assuming was an attempt to make it sound more applicable to modern situations, but made me think more of game shows.

Criminal Minds airs Wednesday evenings on CBS. For our previous writings about this show, see the TV category.

Once again, here are the quotations used in this week’s episode of Criminal Minds. Once again, there was only one quotation, since this was essentially the second half of last week’s episode.
As with many of the quotations in this show, this one is difficult to authenticate, although it’s all over the web. However, I did find the following interesting treatise on light and dark in The Republic:
