Summary[edit]

When Esposito follows a suspected hacker onto a New York City subway for questioning in the murder of a federal government investigator, the last thing he expects is for the man to take the entire train car hostage, to reveal a bomb strapped to his chest, and to expose all passengers to the potentially deadly H1-N5 virus.

Quotes[edit]

Castle: So what do you think? This feels different, doesn’t it?
Beckett: What does?
Castle: Rolling up to a crime scene as a married couple. We’re like Nick and Nora Charles.
Beckett: Ooh, like McMillian and Wife.
Castle: Hart to Hart.
Beckett: Turner and Hooch.
Castle: Turner and Hooch aren’t even married.
Beckett: Yeah, but you still remind me a little of Hooch.

Castle: Consider this: Paul uncovers a nefarious scandal, rife with corruption and financial skullduggery in connection with a federal contract. But with millions of dollars at stake, the greedy contractor, determined to stay latched on to the federal teat, lures Paul into a meeting in the park where he has an assassin silence him, thus Paul’s finding s never come to light.
Beckett: And I don’t suppose that you have a particular case of Paul’s in mind, do you? Or proof? Or suspects?
Castle: No. But I will once you identify who met Paul at the park.

Castle: See, he wants to blow the lid off of a scandal, so who better to call than intrepid investigator Paul Reeves. Because, wait for it…Jared Stone is a whistleblower. And Paul Reeves was murdered because of what Jared Stone told him. Which…which actually means he could be in hanger now.
Ryan: You have to admit, Castle’s theory is surprisingly logical.
Beckett: Yes. And it’s conveniently unburdened by evidence.

Esposito: Hey, what kind of dad do you think I’d be?
Ryan: You’d be great.
Esposito: Even growing up with no role model?
Ryan: Well, you know, the thing of it is, you know what it’s like not having a father. You’d make sure your kid never felt that way. You and Lanie...Hmm?
Esposito: No. She likes things how they are. But, you know, maybe I’m ready for more than that. You know what I’m saying? Move forward.
Ryan: Huh.
Esposito: Hey, did you hear that? That sound?
Ryan: No. What’s that?
Esposito: That’s my biological clock ticking. Tick, tock, tick. (starts laughing)
Ryan: We were having a genuine, honest moment here, and you had to ruin it by being a jackass.

Officer Aragon: I should talk to him. I’m the one wearing the Kevlar.
Esposito: Yeah, but I’ve already got a rapport with the guy, so…
Officer Aragon: A bad rapport. I know what this is. I’m just a transit cop. You gold shield guys always acting like you’re better than us.
Esposito: We are better than you.

(Jared has just revealed to Esposito that he is wearing a bomb that will go off if he releases a plunger)
Esposito: Jared, what are you doing, man?
Jared: It’s kind of self-explanatory, isn’t it.

Esposito: Well why didn’t you give Bob more to go on so he knew who you were talking about?
Jared: I want to keep him off balance. Maintain control.
Esposito: You get that tip off the internet? ‘Cause it’s not a very good one.

Ty: (Handing out pizzas, each with different toppings) Pineapple, olives, double jalapeño.
Esposito: That’s for me.
Officer Aragon: (To Esposito) Really? We’re trapped in a subway car. I’m not sure you should eat that.

Jared: You’re not the priest.
Beckett: No, but I can take your confession.

Beckett: You could have infected and killed millions of people, Ms. Jarvis, and for what? So you could drive a nicer car? Buy a bigger house? Was this all just because of money?
Ms. Jarvis: I want a lawyer.
Beckett: You better find a good one.

Officer Aragon: Who’s Lenny? Or is it Lanie?
Esposito: How do you know about her?
Officer Aragon: On my last tour an IED blew out my eardrum. I got pretty good at reading lips. You were saying her name before you took down Stone.
Esposito: Yeah, I don’t…I don’t remember that.
Officer Aragon: Who you think of in that moment? It has weight. Don’t trade what’s real for something that isn’t.

Castle: Well, it’s not every day you come across someone who makes a suicide bomber look like the good guy.

Ryan: Man, you had me scared.
Esposito: That’s because you’re a wimp.
Ryan: Oh. Well, okay.
Beckett: Yeah, well, I guess that makes me a wimp, too.
Esposito: No.
Lanie: Got any of that left for me? Javi, I was worried sick. I thought that...
Esposito: I know what you thought, but I'm here. I'm back. (kiss Lanie on the cheek and hugs her) I'm all right.

Castle: How about we all go to the Old Haunt, huh? Drinks on me. Come on. We’ll take the subway. (Ryan, Esposito, Lanie, and Castle stop and glare at him.) Too soon?
Esposito: Too soon.
(Castle holds out a coin.)
Castle: Please accept this as a token of my apology. (He laughs at his own pun) Am I on the wrong track here?
