Trivia[edit]

  • After their disagreement about decor in the loft, Castle pretends not to like the elephants on Beckett's desk, to make a point. When Beckett says: 'If you don't like the elephants, I don't like the elephants', Castle admits that he does like them really, holding up one with a banknote rolled up in its trunk and saying '... and this one's good with money!'. Several seasons ago, an Australian five-dollar note was rolled up and put inside the trunk of that elephant on Beckett's desk by Stana during a fan visit to the set, and has stayed there ever since.

Quotes[edit]

Beckett: There’s been a murder.
Castle: Yeah, of Linus’ feelings.

Castle: It’s just I bought Linus with my first royalty check from In a Hail of Bullets. He’s my totem, wild and untamed, and my bedroom is my lair.
Beckett: I know, Castle, but isn’t it kind of our lair now?
Castle: But Linus the Lion is part of my identity. You don’t want to strip me of my identity, do you?
Beckett: No. You know, what? You’re right. I’m sorry. Um, I can just stay at my own place.
Castle: Thanks. Wait! No, that’s not…

Castle: Hey, listen to this. “Males of both species define their territory then honor the female by inviting them in.” See, I’m honoring you by inviting you into my territory and Linus is part of that territory.
Beckett: And if you wanna be invited into my territory again, you should probably rethink that.

Castle: Barrett Hawke? As in the legendary fixer? He’s been sweeping the dirt of New York’s rich and famous under the rug for over a decade. Not my dirt, I’ve just…heard.
Capt. Gates: I’ve heard too.

Castle: Looks like diamonds were a girl’s best friend.

Castle: She’s Ocean’s 11 minus one. She’s…Ocean’s 1.

Beckett: And if it was stolen, why haven’t the owners reported it?
Castle: What if it’s because they couldn’t afford to? Because the diamond has some kind of sordid past, perhaps it’s like the Hope Diamond. It’s cursed. Or maybe it’s an occult gem of great power, smuggled out of Nazi Germany, shoved up someone’s-
Capt. Gates: Thank you, Mr. Castle!

Esposito: How deep would my pockets have to be to afford a rock like that?
Peters: Detective, you are not tall enough to have pockets deep enough.

Esposito: So, we thinking the same thing?
Ryan: That it’s a bummer we can’t stop for lunch because there’s a $60 million diamond sitting between us?
Esposito: No. That because of the $60 million diamond sitting between us, that we are not really, but kinda sorta thinking about making a run for the border.
Ryan: That hadn’t even crossed my mind.
Esposito: Of course it didn’t. You wouldn’t have the stones. All I’m saying.

Beckett: And you said they were wearing masks?
Ryan: Yeah, clown masks.
Castle: As if clowns weren’t creepy enough.
Beckett: What about their voices? Did they say anything? Did they have accents?
Esposito: Uh, they let their bullets do the talking.

Castle: So I was thinking, when we work a case together, this desk of yours is sort of, kind of our space, and these elephants on parade have creeped me out since day one, so what do you say, we just get rid of these? Oh, I’m sorry. Do you have a problem with that? If I try to get rid of something that obviously has deep meaning to you?
Beckett: If you don’t like the elephants, I don’t like the elephants.
Castle: (Thinks for a moment) Fine. I actually like those elephants.

Castle: A young primatologist in an unstable region falls for a different kind of guerilla, a warlord who is funding his bloody agenda with diamonds. He gives her one, as a gift. No, no go back. She’s not that into him and she steals the diamond having no idea it’s real value. She smuggles it back to the United States and finds she can’t sell it without attracting too much attention, so she hides it. Until one day, a jilted and well-read warlord finds a book and sees her photo on the back. Knowing what she stole, he comes after her.
Beckett: That is surprisingly plausible.

Castle: Looks like New York’s biggest fixer, is in a bit of a fix.

Beckett: Seashells?
Castle: Not just seashells, those are our seashells. We collected those-
Beckett: On our first walk in the Hamptons. Castle you kept these.
Castle: No, I know it doesn’t really go with the space, but at least it won’t be hungrily staring at you in the morning.
Beckett: You didn’t have to do this.
Castle: No, I did, I did. I finished reading Alice’s book and there’s a chapter on in there that speaks to couples like us. See, we’re both alphas and it says that we need to define our shared territory together. These, all these pieces all over, these are my stories, but the shells, that’s ours.
Beckett: I like our story.
Castle: Yeah, me too. (Hears a roaring sound) Ooh. That can’t be good. You have to admit, though, we brought this upon ourselves.
Beckett: (Pulls Castle’s cell phone out of his pocket to reveal that the roaring is a ring tone) Seriously?
Castle: If you’re scared, you can always sleep on my side of the bed tonight.
Beckett: Deal.
