1) Season 3, Episode 19: They Meet In The Most Unconventional Manner
We see them meet for the first time in this flashback episode where Penelope is shown to be holding a lot of paperwork and Derek comes from behind, and since he does not know her name, he calls her Baby Girl. Penelope freezes not knowing how to react to this, since she is trying to restart her life with BAU and is nervous and defensive.
