Quotes[edit]

Castle: What are you doing to my desk?
Beckett: Oh, well, Gates is on vacation, so I figured why not do my paperwork from home with my husband? That is, if you want to play hooky with me.
Castle: Is it technically playing hooky if we’re working?
Beckett: Well, we could work for a bit and them maybe…(Seductively) take a nap.
Castle: Ooh. I like naps.
Beckett: Yeah, naps are good.

Cole: Are you suggesting I did something to my wife?
Castle: No, we’re not suggesting, Mr. Whitfield.
Cole: Get out. Get out of my house.

Castle: He’s cocky. What do all cocky men do?
Beckett: (Pointedly) Make mistakes.
Castle: Exactly. Wait, you’re talking about me now, aren’t you?

Ryan: This guy’s a Black Widow. Or rather, Black Widower.

Esposito: Oh, this is funny to you? You signed me up for Match.com? Behind my back?
Ryan: Well, technically Jenny did. I – I’ve only been…managing your profile.
Esposito: Did you think I wouldn’t find out? I almost arrested that girl!

Castle: It’s her walking away money. I am telling you, Beckett. I am right about this.
Beckett: (Answers her phone) Beckett. When? Okay, thanks. (She hangs up) Castle, I’m sorry, but –
Castle: No, Beckett, I know it’s crazy. But Eva is still alive.
Beckett: No, she’s not. They found her body in the Hudson. Eva’s dead.

Castle: (Whispers) Beckett. (Louder) Beckett, are you still awake?
Beckett: (Sleepily) No.
Castle: Good. Something’s bothering me.
Beckett: Yeah? Something’s bothering me, too.

Beckett: Castle, stop chasing the mice in your head.
Castle: What if they’ll lead me to the truth?

Castle: It was Scott Galloway. It has to be. Beckett, will you please just check Scott’s alibi? Would you do that for me?
Beckett: I will. But listen to me. Eva was your friend. She came here, to this very office, and asked for your help and now she’s dead and you feel responsible and that can make you see ghosts.

Ryan: So you believe this theory of Castle’s?
Beckett: I believe that he’s been right too many times not to consider it.

Beckett: She wanted justice for one murder and ended up committing two of her own.
Castle: Well, she was right about one thing. This does have all the makings for one of my novels. I just don’t want to be the one to write it.

Beckett: You doing okay?
Castle: I got played. And now two people are dead.
Beckett: That wasn’t your fault. And because of you, two victims have justice.
Castle: Well, still. Maybe being a private investigator…is too much, I don’t know. Ambiguity.
Beckett: Look, you let the case get under your skin, you know? That happens.
Castle: Well maybe I’m just not cut out for this.
Beckett: You know, you put a lot into becoming a PI. Don’t make any hasty decisions. Maybe you should just sleep on it.
Castle: You’re probably right. I should sleep on it. Or perhaps I should nap on it.
Beckett: Oh, naps are good. I highly advocate naps.
(Beckett slides onto his lap and kisses him)
