Here's how a brief elevator scene between Spencer Reid and Derek Morgan became a fan favorite on Criminal Minds.

CBS' Criminal Minds debuted in 2005 and became another runaway success for the network after other procedurals like NCIS or CSI.Criminal Minds focused on a group of FBI agents tasked with profiling and tracking down serial killers who employ unique and often disturbing methods.

The show could very grim and disturbing at times, to the point where original lead Mandy Patinkin quit Criminal Minds after two seasons as he found it too dark.

Despite the heaviness of the material, the interplay between the BAU's team members often helped balance things out. Kirsten Vangsness' Garcia was only supposed to appear in Criminal Minds' pilot but made such an impression she became one of the show's most popular characters.
