Quotes[edit]

Martha: Good gracious. Richard, you look positively ghastly.
Castle: Good morning to you too, mother.


Burke: Go back to the first image you can recall of your dream. What do you see?
Castle: (the images appearing on screen as he recounts them): I'm asleep on a boat on the ocean ... There's a man there, he says hi to me. He knows me.
Burke: Do you know him?
Castle: He's familiar, but I can't place him ... Wow, this really works! ... OK there's something familiar. A trophy.
Burke: For some kind of sport?
Castle: Maybe, I can't tell. OK someone's firing a pistol. I see blood. There's man on the floor - he's been shot. He's dying. I'm there too. I'm wearing camouflage paint ... I'm trying to help him, but ...
Burke: Can you see where you are right now?
Castle: In a storage shed, but it seems like everything is moving... (realising) I'm in a truck! We're in the jungle! And someone is chasing us! They're shooting at us! There's a blond man in the truck: he's leading the charge.
Burke: A military truck?
Castle: No, it's a civilian truck, but it has a very strange ... licence plate (He starts to draw the licence plate. Then, in his mind's eye, the blond man suddenly aims a rocket at the truck) Uh-oh! (Then, a familiar-looking wiry with in fatigues, with a goatee and a military tattoo, jumps down next to Castle and opens fire on the SUV, almost destroying it and saving their lives)
(Fade and cut to Burke)
Burke: So the man you saw was ... Chuck Norris??


Castle: I know this seems ... impossible.
Beckett: A lot of our cases do at first. But there's something there, Castle. So we'll just follow it and see where it leads.
Tori: (rushing in) I've got something on that license plate. It turns out this isn't Arabic. These are letters in the Thai alphabet.
Beckett: What does it mean?
Tori: That the licence plate was registered in Chiang Mai, a province in northern Thailand.
Castle: I was in Thailand, getting shot at with Chuck Norris?


Beckett: But Castle, why would you be abducted on our wedding day and end up in Thailand?
Castle: Worst bachelor party ever?

Bartlett: Long time, Rick.
Castle: Phil Bartlett! Thank you for coming.
Bartlett: Well, I knew it was only a matter of time before I'd hear from you.
Castle: You were expecting my call?
Bartlett: Of course I was. And I'm here for you.
Castle: Thank God, what a relief. OK. I need to talk to you about Thailand.
Bartlett: (alarmed) What do you know about Thailand?
Castle: I was there, I saw you.
Bartlett: You're not supposed to know. Nobody is. And you can't tell anyone!
Castle: I won't, I won't, I promise. As long as you tell me your version of what happened.
Bartlett: I can't do that.
Castle: I need to know what you know.
Bartlett: What I'm about to say can never be repeated.
Castle: Understood.
Bartlett: I was in Thailand to attend an investment conference. (Castle nods intently) We hit this Bangkok nightclub ... God, she was so beautiful ... I thought she was a woman, I swear to God!
Castle: (blinking) Wait, what? Um, no. I need you to tell me about Chiang Mai.
Bartlett: (baffled) I was never in Chiang Mai. I was in Bangkok. You said you ... saw me?
Castle: Yeah. But ... I didn't see... that.
Bartlett: (rising) I think it's best that we never speak of this again.
Castle: No, no! You were there! I know you were!
Bartlett: Look, I don't know what kind of game you're playing here, but ...
Castle: It's not a game! I saw our trophy! The one we won for debate club. You were expecting my call! Why would you be expecting my call?
Bartlett: (handing him a card) Philip Bartlett. Bartlett Braddick Wealth Management. I wanted to take you on as a client. Now not so much.


Beckett: I've been following up on some new leads about Castle's disappearance.
Gates: In connection to Chuck Norris?
Beckett: Yeah, it's ... complicated.


Beckett: Now, LT will drive you home.
Castle: And if I refuse?
Beckett: Then LT will drive you home in handcuffs.
Castle: Just for the record: extremely bitter.

Bilal: I was an exchange student at Faircroft Prep, in 11th grade.
Castle: You weren't. I'd remember that.
Bilal: Not any more.


Bilal: I can’t believe they picked Phil Bartlett. What a douchebag.


Jenkins: Well, you'll have to forget about Bilal Khan and everything else that happened tonight ...
Castle: Are you going to help me to forget?
Jenkins: We'd prefer not to.
Castle: Yes, well, thank you for that. And (punches Jenkins hard in the face) That's for making me miss my wedding day.
