```Hi.

You could try

In[88]:=
f[x_] = (x - 1)^2;
x /. Solve[D[f[x], x] == 0, x][[1]];
lin = Graphics[{Thickness[0.006], Dashing[{0.04, 0.04}], Orange,
Line[{{%, f[%]}, {%, f[2]}}]}];

In[91]:=
Show[{Block[{\$DisplayFunction = Identity}, Plot[(x - 1)^2, {x, 0, 2},
Frame -> {True, True, False, False}]], lin}]

Cheers
Dimitris
