Quotes[edit]

Beckett: Did you seriously stay up staring at this Scrabble board all night instead of going to bed?
Castle: With these five remaining tiles I have to craft a word scoring nine points and I turn defeat into victory.
Alexis: Oh my gosh. Did you really beat Dad at Scrabble?
Castle: I concede nothing. Except that I need more coffee.
Martha: That is quite an accomplishment, young lady. Nobody beats him. Ever.
Beckett: Oh, yeah. He’s mentioned that. Repeatedly.
Martha: Ah… how the mighty have fallen.
Castle: “Richard Castle, one word short.” I cannot allow this to be my epitaph. (Alexis and Beckett fist bump one another just as Beckett’s phone rings.) I saw that.

Lanie: Well, if he needed some fresh air he got some by way of three holes in his back from 9 millimeter hollow points.

Esposito: So did we hear right? Are you Beckett’s maid of honor?
Lanie: Yeah, she asked me the other day.
Ryan: Do you have any idea who Castle’s best man is?
Lanie: First, congratulations Lanie. Oh, thank you! Second, I don’t know if he’s picked anyone yet.

Ryan: Castle has spent practically every day in the precinct for the past few years. Why wouldn’t he ask one of us to be his best man?
Esposito: Why wouldn’t he pick me to be his best man, is what you mean.
Ryan: Oh Javi, I’m the obvious choice. If you can’t see it I can’t explain it to you.

Beckett: And who is Manny Castro?
Esposito: A top pro who had beef with Logan. Six months ago Logan showed him up in an event in Los Angeles and then beat him two more times after that. Tension got super high between the two of them.
Beckett: Oh. A reigning champion unable to cope with defeat. That sounds familiar.

Beckett: Whoa! Nice tail whip.
Castle: Oh. So you know the lingo? Any extreme sports in your history I’ve yet to hear about?
Beckett: Well, I mean, I think catching killers is pretty extreme. And then there’s marrying you.
Castle: Oh yes. I admit I am extreme. Extremely handsome.
Beckett: Yep. With a high degree of difficulty.

Manny Castro: The guy’s a loser. What’s there to talk about?
Beckett: How about his murder?

Manny Castro: No, that’s not what it looks like.
Castle: Really? Because it looks like it is what it looks like.

Esposito: Oh, Castle. I – I got something for you. It’s that pen you liked. It’s an heirloom.
(Esposito hands him a pen from his jacket.)
Castle: What's the occasion?
Esposito: There’s no occasion. It’s just ‘cause – ‘cause we’re bros. Best bros.
Castle: This is fantastic.
Beckett: No it’s not. It’s juvenile.

Castle: D for dyad, which means two people talking, as we are now.
Beckett: Well actually, it’s been mostly you talking. Well, bragging, to be specific.
Castle: Okay, word score’s a 9, plus the double word score brings it to 18, plus the 5 from the ‘ay’, that’s a total of 23, bringing my score to 312 versus your paltry 175.
Beckett: Castle, aren’t there more important things than winning?
Castle: Oh. That’s a notion created to comfort those who lose.
Beckett: (flirtatiously) Well, I was thinking we could be doing something more interesting with our time.
Castle: Well, in that case, let’s hurry up and finish this game.
Beckett: Okay, how about I concede?
Castle: And steal my moment of triumph? No. It doesn’t count if it’s not official. Now take your turn and feel the bitter sting of defeat.
Beckett: Fine.
Castle: Quixotic?
Beckett: Yeah. So that’s a triple word score with the Q and the C, plus a double letter score with the X, and another 50 point bonus for using all my letters. How many points is that?
Castle: (quietly) 314.
Beckett: I’m sorry, Castle.
Castle: I think I need to be alone.

Esposito: Hey man. I’ve been thinking. You know, Castle likes us both too much to have to make the pick for best man, so we should make the decision for him.

Ryan: Uh … (he laughs) … it’s his wedding. How do you propose we decide for him?
Esposito: Well … one of us is going to have to drop out. And by one of us, I mean you.
Ryan: Me? Why should it be me?
Esposito: Because – do you think Richard Castle wants you planning his bachelor party? Come on, bro.
Ryan: Oh, Esposito. See, being a best man is a lot more than just preparing the bachelor party. I’m a family man, I represent high moral standing –
Esposito: Oh please.
Ryan: And I photograph better than you.

Carter Wexland: Yeah, he loaned it me the day before. So I could work out.
Beckett: It was a quick workout, considering you were only there for only two minutes. You went there to drop off this duffle bag. And since Logan was carrying this exact bag earlier that night we know the two of you crossed paths.
Esposito: I wish you could see your face right now. It’s a neon sign flashing “I did it! I did it!”

Esposito: Yeah. It’s perfect. You’re the maid of honor so you pick. We let Castle know. Everybody wins.
Ryan: Javi, this is ridiculous. Of course she’s going to pick you.
Esposito: That’s because there’s no better best man material than this man right here. Right, baby?
Lanie: Javi, do you really think I’d pick you with our history?
Ryan: Well, I guess that’s settled.
Lanie: What’s settled is, you two are idiots. I’m not picking either one of you. You want to know why? Because I’m not the groom. (She goes to leave) Detectives.

Castle: So. Are you ready for another rematch?
Beckett: Really?
Castle: You would deny me a chance at redemption?
Beckett: Well keep on this path and there’s a lot you’ll be denied.

Ryan: I did not see that coming.
Esposito: I can’t believe I gave him my pen.
Ryan: I can’t believe I shared our family’s secret recipe.
Esposito: I can’t believe we just got beat by a girl.
Ryan: Let’s never speak of this again.
Esposito: Speak of what?

Castle: Why did you do that?
Beckett: New game. Poker.
Castle: You want to play poker against me?
Beckett: Strip poker.
Castle: (He takes the cards immediately) I’ll deal.

(After several hands of poker, Beckett is down to wearing just her bra and Castle just his shirt)
Castle: Your bet.
Beckett: (flirtatiously) I think I’m going to go all in.
Castle: Me too. But all I have left to bet with is this shirt.
Beckett: I’ll take that bet. What’ve you got?
Castle: Who cares?
(They both toss aside their cards and kiss)
