Martha: Can your mother give you a little unsolicited advice?
Castle: No.
Martha: Too bad. I need to work on my material.
Castle: Material?
Martha: Didn't I tell you? I'm writing a book. Unsolicited Advice by Martha Rodgers.


Castle: Heyyy, Slaughter, buddy, how you been?
Slaughter: Not enough shootouts, but otherwise stellar!

Alexis: We're swamped.
Martha: Completely swamped.
Castle: Completely.
Slaughter: OK. You don't have to tell me twice. I got it. Great to see you again, Sherlock. I had some stories I was gonna tell you to help you with your next book. Like this time I was chasing this cartel hit team through the sewers for three days. But that's just going to have to be for another time. Ciao! (He leaves)
Castle: Cartel hit team? ....
Martha: Be strong, Richard.
Castle: Through the sewers...? (He rushes after Slaughter) Slaughter! Wait! (Collides with him) I'm in.
Slaughter: Outstanding.


Slaughter: Isn't this fun? You and me together again? Like Butch and Sundance.
Castle: You know they die at the end of the movie, right?


Slaughter: (catching the hidden gun out of Castle's desk) What are you, Inspector Gadget? This is a gun, not a pen.


Slaughter: Whoa, she speaks British! That's hot.
Hayley: Wow, it's always a pleasure meeting one of your friends, Rick.


(Slaughter throws Castle's phone out of the car window)
Castle: I lose more phones in this line of work...


Castle: I pictured your decor less Architectural Digest, more Guns & Ammo.

Castle: I had no idea that you were married! What's her name?
Slaughter: Maddie.
Castle: (Noticing La Boheme poster): And I take it Maddie likes the opera?
Slaughter: She's a mezzo-soprano at the New York City Opera.
Castle: I'm sorry .. Maddie as in ... Madeleine Corday? I - I've seen her perform! She's an absolute revelation! I just can't picture her ... with you. How'd you even meet her?
Slaughter: College. We had the same major... (realising what he' s said)
Castle: You majored in opera singing?
Slaughter: No. Musical theatre.
Castle: You??
Slaughter: Yeah. And if you tell anyone I'm gonna force-feed you your spleen. Through your nose.
Castle: Yeah, sorry, I'm trying to be scared. I just keep picturing you doing jazz hands.


Slaughter: Her career took off. Mine failed to launch.


Slaughter: You’re too smart to be talking this stupid, Sherlock. If you really love that broad, you figure out what the problem is and you do something.


Castle: Well, I've tried. She won't let me in.
Slaughter: Then quit asking permission.
