Quotes[edit]

(The Fasten Seatbelt light comes on. Castle shifts in his seat)
Alexis: Dad, when did you become such a nervous flier?
Castle: I'm not! I just don't like turbulence, or a sudden drop in cabin pressure, or mechanical problems. Or crashing.
Alexis: There's nothing to worry about. It's just a little bumpy air. That's all it is.
Castle: Air, by nature, should not be bumpy.
Alexis: Just look at the flight crew. If they're up and smiling, then everything is fine.
(A sudden rattle of turbulence shakes the plane, making the flight crew stagger)
Castle: Yes, well, they're up but they're not exactly smiling.
Alexis: Dad, it's a long flight. You should really focus on something else or it'll seem even longer. For both of us.
Castle: Fine. I shall ignore the grim spectre of death, and focus instead on our itinerary.


Castle: I will be speaking, and if you're not there, who'll be proud of me?
Alexis: I'm always proud of you, dad! But I've heard you speak a million times. I know what you're going to say.
Castle: That is improbable.
Alexis: You'll say that you don't believe in writer's block, that you wrote your first novel to impress a girl, that reading great writers inspires you, and drinking with them inspires you to beat them on the bestseller list.
Castle: OK. Clearly I need to develop some new material. But this was supposed to be old-fashioned father-daughter time!
Alexis: Dad, watching you speak to your your cronies isn't exactly father-daughter time. Besides, I'm not 12. We don't have to be attached at the hip.
(Another violent shudder of turbulence)
Castle: OK, that impending spectre of death is back.


Captain Edmunds: Right now, with the air marshal missing, you're the closest thing to law enforcement we have on this plane.
Castle: Which in itself is cause for concern.


Castle: There's a snake on the mother-flyin' plane!


Beckett: Are you OK?
Castle: Alexis is on this flight, along with 200 other people.
Beckett: Castle, you can do this.
Castle: Do what? What am I supposed to do, catch the killer? It could be anyone! I wouldn't know where to start.
Beckett: You start at the beginning, where you build a timeline for the victim. Same first step we always take.
Castle: R-right. It's just that his first step is 39,000 feet off the ground.


Castle: I just don't want you to be a part of this.
Alexis: I'm already a part of it. I can help, dad. I interned with Lanie, remember? I'll check the body for clues.
Castle: Well, er... Alexis ...
Alexis: There is a killer on this plane. We don't know what he's planning or who he is. And maybe I can do something about that. I am not going back to my seat.
Castle: Even if it means us being joined at the hip?
Alexis: Really? You're throwing that back at me now?
Castle: Right in your face.


Castle: We need to identify him – figure out who we're dealing with. (He has an idea) Isn't it about time for another drinks service?
Jim: It would be, except the airline's cut back, so now we're only ...
Castle: (stopping him): Jim. Jim. My treat.


Farrah: What are we doing now?
Alexis: He's using graphite from his mechanical pencil to make fingerprint powder ...
Castle: (Crushing the graphite) Saw this on MacGyver once. You know I actually met Richard Dean Anderson? You know what he said? ...
Alexis: (interrupting) Please do it already.

(The missing phone starts to ring. Castle and Alexis search the hold)
Castle: I have something!
Alexis: Where is it?
(They approach the snake's cage, the ringing gets louder)
Castle: Oh, crap! I hate snakes! How long does it take for a snake to pass a ...
Alexis: (pointing to the floor) There it is!
Castle: Oh! Thank God.


(Beckett is in the precinct alone, looking at the flight tracker app on her iPad. Esposito see her and comes over.)
Beckett: I'm just making sure it's still there.


Alexis: You know, I think I'm going to postpone my pub date.
Castle: You are? But I thought you said you didn't want to be attached at the hip?
Alexis: Yeah, well, after what happened today ... I kinda do.
Castle: Me too. (They hug)
