Sarah Hillridge : How long have you been doing this, Dr. Reid?
Dr. Spencer Reid : 5 years, 7 months, and 19 days.
Sarah Hillridge : In your experience, what normally happens?
Dr. Spencer Reid : Charlie was 8 when he was taken, which means developmentally, he was in middle childhood. He had a stronger sense of right and wrong and a growing understanding of his place in the world. Mentally, he had the ability to talk about his thoughts and feelings, while having less focus on himself and more concern for others.
Sarah Hillridge : [nodding blankly] So you think he's gonna be OK?
Dr. Spencer Reid : With a mother like you who-who did all this, I-I do. I'm a doctor. I put my faith in facts and statistical probabilities, but today, 8 parents are gonna have closure. 3 children are going home with their families, all because you believed your son was alive. That's as close to a miracle as I've ever seen.
Dr. Spencer Reid : Mr Lynch, I think you should know that nothing could have stopped these people from taking your daughter.
Frank Lynch : Yeah. Well, I would have never let go of her hand.
Barbara Lynch : Frank, please. Frank.
Derek Morgan : We've done all we can.
Dr. Spencer Reid : It doesn't make walking away any easier.
Derek Morgan : No, it doesn't.
