Music Edit

  • "Still I Long For Your Kiss" by Lucinda Williams

Bookend Quotes Edit

  • Aaron Hotchner: W.S. Gilbert wrote, "It's love that makes the world go 'round."
  • Aaron Hotchner: "Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts." Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • Aaron Hotchner: "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Trivia Edit

  • The alternate title of the musical The Pirates of Penzance (which is quoted by Hotch during Haley's eulogy) is The Slave of Duty, fittingly enough. The title of the episode can also serve as an accurate description of Hotch's personality, in the sense that he is heavily dedicated to his job (which is a theme in his subplot in the episode).
