Quotes[edit]

Beckett: Castle? Are you asleep?
Castle: Yes.
Beckett: Then why’d you answer me?
Castle: I’m sleep talking. Also known as somniloquy. Just ignore me.
Beckett: I don’t know what to do.
Castle: I have some ideas.

Beckett: I might as well just apply to be a mall cop.
Castle: Ooh, you would look great on a Segway.

Beckett: What am I gonna do, just sleep in every morning and screw around ‘til the phone rings? What kind of life is that?
Castle: Mine.
Beckett: Sorry.

Castle: You don’t have to work.
Beckett: I don’t need to work? Does that mean you’re my sugar daddy?
Castle: Ooh…hold on, that didn’t…come out…Actually, I’m still sleep talking. I can’t really be held responsible for whatever I say.

Martha: Good morning, darlings!
Castle: Doesn’t anyone knock?
Martha: Door was open. Don’t be an Old Maid. Nothing going on here that I haven’t seen or done before.

Beckett: You know what? I think I’m gonna sleep at my old place tonight.
Castle: I think I might join you.

Sergeant Roman: All you have to do is talk.
Beckett: Well, if there’s one thing you excel at, Castle, it’s talking.

Sergeant Roman: You ready?
Castle: No, but let’s do this anyway.

Emma: You say you’re Richard Castle, you’re gonna have to prove it, alright? In the Nikki Heat series, what’s Rook and Nikki’s wine of choice?
Castle: Sancerre.
Emma: In Deadly Heat, what’s Douglas Sandmann’s nickname?
Castle: Bedbug Doug.
Emma: In Storm Rising, what’s Pierre DuBois’ last words?
Castle: Ah! Trick question. Pierre was a Trappist monk. He took a vow of silence. He never spoke. Boom! You believe it’s me now, Emma? Because I could play Richard Castle trivia with you all day. I will crush you.
Emma: Okay. It’s you.

Sergeant Roman: So we’re gonna need a code word that tells us you need help. What’s your favorite food?
Castle: Oh, um, are we talking everyday food or fine dining? If desserts are included-
Beckett: Cheeseburgers. He loves cheeseburgers.
Castle: I do enjoy a good cheeseburger.

Beckett: Listen, I’m kinda looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you, so don’t do anything stupid in there, okay?
Castle: Hey, don’t worry. I think I already hit my stupid quota for the day.

Castle: No cheeseburgers. I repeat, no cheeseburgers. (Sees everyone’s puzzled looks) Cutting down on red meat.

Castle: Scotch girl. Me too…boy.

Beckett: We’re just trying to enjoy our engagement. Why is everyone trying to rush us?
Ryan: Think you’re being rushed now, wait until after the wedding. About ten minutes from the altar, they’ll all be like ‘When are you two having a baby?’
Esposito: Bro, you’re wife’s hormonal because she’s pregnant. What’s your excuse?

Beckett: How does Sully find anything on this desk?
Castle: I don’t know. He must have a system. I think that was once a bagel.

Castle: It’s Castle. And I brought doughnuts.
Mickey: Gluten free?
Castle: Dude, they’re doughnuts. Either you’re in or you’re out.

Emma: I am not a murderer.
Castle: Says the lady pointing a gun at me.

Emma: I’m sure they all got a laugh off all the adjectives describing me, right? Manic, bi-polar, violent, murderer!
Castle: Well, not to be a stickler, but murderer isn’t an adjective.
Emma: I’m not an idiot.
Castle: Sorry. I get sarcastic when I’m nervous.

Beckett: Head back to Angelo’s place. We need to search it again.
Esposito: You are aware that you don’t actually work here anymore, right?
Beckett: I’m sorry. Old habits.
Esposito: Okay, uh, I’ll grab Sully and go check again just in case, but not because you asked me to. ‘Cause I was actually on my way to…

Ryan: Just stop it. You’ve already lost your job. Now the only question is whether you’re losing your freedom too because I’m about two seconds away from arresting you for accessory to murder.
Julian Carter: Wait, wait, wait. Hold on-
Beckett: You better start talking before he pulls out his cuffs. (They wait a second, Beckett nods to Ryan, and he pulls out his hand cuffs)
Julian: Okay, okay, okay!

Castle: Looks like Mr. Stokes is going to be trading in his big house for the…Big House.

Esposito: Just wait before you get all lawyer-y.

Esposito: You didn’t think to look at the wrapped gift, did you? Oops.

Esposito: We found the bottle in your recycle bin. It tested positive for chloral hydrate. Oops again.

Ryan: Are you gonna make a deal and plea to murder or take your chances in court?
Esposito: Do lawyers have lawyers?

Castle: And to think you boys mocked me when I had this made four years ago. I think I’ll have it framed.
Ryan: What does it say about your writing when your number one fan tries to kill you?
Castle: That was an accident.
Esposito: Been one inch higher it would have been a tragedy.
Castle: But on the bright side, your autographed copies of Deadly Heat would be worth way more.
Beckett: Not funny, Castle.
Castle: Little bit funny.
Esposito: You know, Beckett, despite your fiancée’s near death, today was fun.
Ryan: Yeah, we miss working with you.
Beckett: Good – ‘cause I’m back!

Ryan: Hey, everybody, listen up! Beckett is back!
Castle: And tonight at The Old Haunt, drinks are on the house! (He turns to Beckett) Congratulations.
Beckett: Thank you.
(They move in to kiss, but Castle’s stops)
Castle: Whoa, actually no. We can’t, not here, it’s inappropriate. This is the workplace. We gotta be professional.
Beckett: Uh, you know, I’m not officially back until tomorrow.
Castle: I see.
(They kiss passionately)

Trivia[edit]

  • The Old Haunt that Castle mentions is a callback to the bar Castle bought in Last Call.
