Episode Quotes
(Prentiss working on something)

Reid: What is that?
Prentiss: It's a star puzzle. It's basically impossible to figure out. You have to put all of the pieces back together to form a perfect star. But, the origin of it is kind of a romantic tale. There was this young prince who wanted to win the heart of the fairest maiden in the land. So, he climbed to the top of the tallest tower in the kingdom and he caught a falling star for her. Unfortunately he was so excited that he dropped it and it smashed into all of these pieces. So he frantically put it back together again to prove his undying love to her and he succeeded and they lived happily ever after.
Reid: It doesn't make any sense.
Prentiss: What do you mean?
Reid: You can't catch a falling star, it would burn up in the atmosphere.
Prentiss: Yeah, but it's not literal Reid. It's a fable.
Reid: But there's no moral, fable's have morals.
Prentiss: Okay, so it's just a romantic little story.

(Reid takes the puzzle)

Prentiss: The point is it's basically impossible to do because you have to take all of those pieces and fit them together exactly...

(Reid places the completed puzzle on to the table)

Prentiss: There's a lot to hate about you Dr. Reid
Rossi: Play poker with him sometime
Morgan: Try playing chess with him.
Garcia: Or Go.
