“Well?” Rossi asked. “How’d it go? By the time Celine got off, you two were already gone. Did you have some fun?”

Hotch groaned and dramatically set his head on his desk. “Dave, please.”

Rossi feigned a wince. “Ooh, hangover? Come on, old sport. Give me something.”

Hotch sighed. “Well you do make a good wingman for someone who was supposed to be your wingman.”

Rossi bowed before taking a seat. “How’d the tour go?”

“Fast?” Rossi quirked an eyebrow. “It was a nice night. We went back to her place…” he tapered off, somewhat embarrassed. “Then I made her breakfast in the morning-“

“Attaboy,” the Italian said.

“And then I left.”

“That’s it? Nothing more came of it?”

“Come on, Dave. It’s been awhile since my last one night stand,” he cringed slightly at the phrase. Not very gentlemanly. “Maybe around twenty years.”

Rossi whistled. “Well, I’m proud of you kiddo. We’ll have to do this again sometime.”

“Please no,” the Unit Chief hid his face in his hands. “I have the worst headache. There’s nothing worse than drinking wine, scotch, champagne, and beer all in one night.”

“Have I not told you my cure for hangovers?” Hotch peeked an eye between his fingers only to find Rossi holding up a bottle of scotch. “Hair from the dog, my friend.”

“You’re going to be the death of me.”

“Please, Aaron. This isn’t death—this is life!”

For many years readers of the Bible have passed over the love angle in [David and Jonathan’s] story, assuming that the language of intimacy and affection was simply a peculiar way of de­scribing a very close buddy-buddy relationship. (The New Revised Standard Version, for example, gives the story in 1 Samuel 20 the safe and bland title, “The Friendship of David and Jonathan.”) But recent studies by scholars of the Hebrew Bible like Matti Nissinen, Saul Olyan, and Susan Akerman have placed this story in its ancient context and shown that it is indeed a love story. Akerman, in her book, When Heroes Love, compares it to the similarly charged story of Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Like David and Jonathan, the saga of Gilgamesh and Enkidu is a story of ancient male intimacy. Gilgamesh is a bad king driven by rapacious sex­ual energy, which “leaves not the son to his father … nor the maid to her mother.” Then, one day, mighty Gilgamesh dreams of a companion, a friend, to whom he is drawn “as though to a woman.” And so it is when Gilgamesh meets Enkidu, the crumbled tablet upon which this fragmen­tary story remains spares us all the details save this: “they kissed each other and formed a friendship.”

I feel like every show has to make one of the main characters have an evil clone or inner evil that causes half the conflict for the series or even just the episode in which the evil itself appeared in (although I honestly have to admit Spike and Bipper’s cases are more like possessed than anything else so I still count it but whatever if anyone has any objections it’s cool)

“River you know my name, you whispered my name in my ear. There’s only one reason that I would ever tell anyone my name, there’s only one time I could”

“Winona is a little bitty thing. She is so willing to throw down with me. Like, I’m a big guy and a big presence and I have a loud voice, and she will READ ME. She’d be like, “I’m going! If it was your son!” – David Harbour
