The Longest Night [6.01]Edit
- J.J.: [speaking to Billy Flynn over the radio system] You can do what you want to do. But for once, you could choose to use that power to do for Ellie what should have been done for you. You can choose letting her go. You can choose teaching her that, yes, there are monsters and it is okay to be afraid of them, but it is not okay to let them win. And it is not okay to be one.
- Billy Flynn: Do you believe in heaven?
- Morgan: [raises his gun and aims at Flynn] This is your last chance.
- Billy Flynn: Do you think I might see her there? Maybe get a second chance? [stands up] I'd really like that.
- Jennifer Jareau: "A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another, the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another, it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden." The Buddha
- Jennifer Jareau: Jean Racine said, "A tragedy need not have blood and death; it's enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy."
- Jennifer Jareau: [quoting her exit interview in voiceover] I'm thankful for my years spent with this family, for everything we shared, every chance we had to grow. I'll take the best of them with me and lead by their example wherever I go. A friend told me to be honest with you, so here it goes. This isn't what I want, but I'll take the high road. Maybe it's because I look at everything as a lesson, or because I don't want to walk around angry...or maybe it's because I finally understand. There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.
