These Criminal Minds quotes won’t help you answer, “What is the best Criminal Minds episode?”; however, they do come from some of the top contenders!

Criminal Minds has taught us much about life, suffering, and the human capacity for evil.

It has also given us glimpses of the power of forgiveness and hope.

The showrunners have also crushed our hearts and souls due to their treatment of a certain attractive young doctor…but it’s not like I actually stopped watching the show (Erica Messer, I came so close!).

Created and produced by Jeff Davis, the series premiered on CBS on September 22, 2005, and concluded on February 19, 2020.

It was one of the network’s most-watched shows throughout its 15-year-long run.

Now might actually be a great time to go stream some earlier episodes and really enjoy these Criminal Minds quotes!

Don’t forget to also read these awkward Napoleon Dynamite quotes that are sure to make you laugh.
