I want to know who picks the quotes. They do a brilliant job.

Jan said...

I love quotes anyway, and they use them so such good effect on the show.

serafina said...

These quotes were very appropriate. I love the quotes.

Lin said...

I have heard the closing quote before and have always loved it. Very appropriate choice!

judith said...

Ditto, ditto! Love the quotes. I do not even like episodes that only have the one. I define the start and end of an episode by the message of the quotes.

kara said...

I love that song.

The quotes were good and the song was great.

Thanks for posting.

I like the irony of the Thomas Paine quote. Like, yeah, everyone wants the world to be less violent for their children, but will it ever happen? As Gideon said, "Good luck with that."

mona said...

I also like how they say the quotes.

I think the only two who have not recited quotes are Garcia and Prentiss. Is that right? I think Morgan has had a quote before.

I have to agree about when there is only one quote...it makes you feel naked on one foot. :)

ana said...

DaVinci's quote has stuck with me since last night. I liked it.

ella said...

I am loving AJ's hair in this epi. Great caps.

jessica said...

I would guess the writers pick the quotes and that has to be really hard. They come up with some really unique ones. They do a good job. I like the quotes.

On a random sidenote, anyone know where to find a sweater like JJ's in the Distress episode? I'm kinda liking it!

jacqui said...

I wonder if they just go through the Bartlett book of quotes to find all these. they must have a team of people putting these together.
