Quotes[edit]

Castle: I am not giving up. And do you know why? Because it’s the best idea ever!
Beckett: Castle, I am not getting married in space.
Castle: Why not?! We could be the first! Commercial space flight is only a couple years away and you said you wanted it to be special.
Beckett: Yes, because when I was a little girl imagining my wedding day, being stuck in a tin can with a thousand pounds of rocket fuel strapped to my ass was exactly what I had in mind.
Castle: Then we agree!
Beckett: If you don’t wanna go and look at wedding venues this weekend, then just say so.
Castle: I don’t wanna go look at wedding venues this weekend.
Beckett: Too bad.

Alexis: You’ve been checking up on me.
Castle: No! No…a little, yes.

Beckett: (about Alexis) She’s practically family. I care about her too.
Castle: You’re pretty great, you know that.
Beckett: Yeah. Now go spend some time with your daughter.

Alexis: My Dad’s a genius at uncovering the real story.

Castle: I don’t even know if he’s innocent.
Beckett: Okay. How can I help?
Castle: I don’t even know if I can help. I mean, what if I can’t? Alexis would never forgive me.
Beckett: Just do your best, Castle. She loves you. And I’m here, for both of you.

Alexis: (Exits house and is surprised by Castle who is wielding a heavy instrument) Dad, what are you doing?!
Castle: Overreacting, maybe?

Castle and Alexis: (simultaneously) We need to talk to Kim’s mother.
Castle: Now that was weird. Usually I do that with Beckett.

Beckett: I just wanted to thank you for all your help with Castle and Alexis.
Lanie: Seems like you could’ve done that over the phone. Alright, talk to me girlfriend. Tell me what’s on your mind.
Beckett: Do you find it odd that Alexis has gone to everyone but me on this case?
Lanie: She hasn’t gone to Perlmutter yet.
Beckett: Yeah, well, no one does if they can help it.
Lanie: Well, you can’t take it personally.
Beckett: No, I know, it’s just, Castle and I are about to become a family, which is weird enough as it is. And he and Alexis have this whole history that has nothing to do with me and it kind of feels like when it comes to the two of them, I’m always gonna be on the outside.
Lanie: Perfect families don’t exist. It’s gonna be up to you to find a way to make your baggage match their baggage. It’s up to you to make your own history.

Alexis: Can you pull up records all the way back to 1998?
Betty: Even if I can, I probably shouldn’t.
Castle: Uh, perhaps a generous donation for new textbooks is in order.
Betty: I suppose I could bend the rules.

Alexis: Dad tell me what to do!
Castle: Hey, I don’t know. But whatever happens, we’re gonna deal with it. Alright? Together.
Alexis: I’m sorry I was mad at you.
Castle: Oh, no. I deserved it. I’m sorry.

Castle: What you did here was amazing.
Alexis: Thank you. For everything.
Castle: Anytime.
Alexis: You ready?
Castle: Don’t you wanna stay and celebrate?
Alexis: No. This is enough. Besides there’s someone else I need to thank.
