Quotes[edit]

© 2012-2013 American Broadcasting Companies, Inc.

Beckett: Do you know how you talk in your sleep sometimes?
Castle: Yeah.
Beckett: Well, last night you said a name.
Castle: Oh, and not your name.
Beckett: No.
Castle: Well, I wouldn’t read anything into one random utterance.
Beckett: 14 utterances and the name was Jordan.

Beckett: I’ll just wait until you’re asleep and then I’ll ask you.
Castle: You can’t do that.
Beckett: C’mon, Castle. You just said you had nothing to hide.
Castle: Yeah, but interrogating me in my sleep? Would you stoop that low?
Beckett: Who says I haven’t already?

Castle: Wow. Talk about death by chocolate.
Lanie: Don’t blame it on the chocolate, Castle. A bullet’s what did him in.
Castle: So that red stuff’s not raspberry sauce.
Lanie: ‘Fraid not.

Castle: You can rule dissatisfied customers. These things are insanely good.
Lanie: Eww! You’re eating a dead man’s cupcake?
Castle: It was free samples.

Beckett: Time of death?
Esposito: Between 11:30 and 12.
Lanie: Based on what? All of a sudden you’re an M.E.?
Esposito: I thought you liked it when I played doctor. (Gets a death glare from Lanie) I, uh…

Esposito: (shows the team a briefcase full of money) Looked like Jimmy kept a lot of dough around here.
Castle: It is a bakery.
Esposito: Good one.

Jenny: The appointment at Dr. Rosenberg's office is in 20 minutes. It's gonna take us 15 to get there, so we should probably go, right? Which means you should probably... (notices Ryan's nervous expression) Hey. What's the matter?
Ryan: What if it’s my fault? What if it turns out that there's something wrong with me?
Jenny: It's nobody's fault, Kev. We just need to know what's going on. (smiles) You want some help? (Ryan chuckles as she leans in to kiss him)
Ryan: Uh... (He and Jenny giggles) Nice.

Castle: So master baker Jimmy Whelan, long-time purveyor of caloric yet delicious baked goods, sponsor of a local kids’ softball team, charter member of the Small Business Roundtable, but what was he doing with $50,000 in cash and why the secret trips to Staten Island?
Beckett: Sounds like you’re not the only one keeping secrets, Castle.
Castle: I’m going to ignore that.

Castle: How did the, uh, thing go with the, uh, you know…do the thing and the thing and thing to the doctor?
Ryan: Yeah. Uh, it went... fine.
Esposito: So are your swimmers swimming?
Ryan (looks down and covers himself, embarrassed): Um, I don't know yet.

Jenny (holds up a brown bag): Kevin, you forgot you lunch.
Ryan: Thanks, baby.
Jenny: What would you do without me, huh?
Siobhan: Fenton?
Ryan: Siobhan?
Siobhan: Fenton!
(Siobhan kisses Ryan)
Jenny: Hey! What the hell are you doing?! That’s my husband!
Siobhan: You’re married?!
(Siobhan slaps him)
Castle: Oh, lady, you can’t slap a cop!
Siobhan: You’re a cop?! (Siobhan slaps Ryan again) You liar! You sonuvabitch! How could you? Get off of me! Let go!
Ryan: (to everyone) I can explain.

Castle: Ooh, Jenny’s pissed.
Beckett: Yeah, well, it’s not surprising when you find out someone you’re in a relationship with is keeping a secret.

Ryan: It’s complicated.
Castle: I love complicated!

Esposito: Deep cover! I can’t believe he didn’t tell me!
Beckett: Espo, he didn’t even tell Jenny.
Esposito: Yeah, but I’m his best friend. She’s just the wife.
Beckett: Thus proving why there is no Mrs. Esposito.
Esposito: Hey. It’s hard to find a woman for this much man.

Castle: So do we know how Ryan’s doing?
Beckett: Don’t know. And I hate not knowing things.
Castle: Ok, look, uh, Jordan is not a woman, alright?
Beckett: Then who is it? Or rather what is it?
Castle: Why does it matter?
Beckett: Because, Castle, it matters to you. Why won't you tell me?

Castle: Perhaps Bobby S. had an accomplice: a cold-blooded, murderous sheep.
Beckett: That’s it!
Castle: Seriously?

Jenny: Why would he do a thing like this? Maybe he thinks he has something to prove because of all our pregnancy stuff.
Beckett: You know, I think that there are probably a number of reasons, but the main one is that he just wants to do the right thing. I mean, that’s who he is, that’s why he became a cop, that’s why you fell in love with him.
Jenny: I just want him to come home.

Ryan: Why don’t we meet my partner, huh? Yo Javi, where you at?!
Esposito: Right here, bro.
Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no. He is former Special Forces. You do not wanna draw on him.
Ryan: Wanna meet the rest of my crew? Hey, Beckett!
Beckett: You called, Ryan?!
Ryan: Don’t let the looks fool you, boys. You don’t wanna mess with her either. Castle!
Castle: Seriously? I didn’t, I didn’t bring my vest.

Castle: Listen, Kate, about Jordan-
Beckett: You know what, if you don’t wanna talk about it-
Castle: I, I wanna, but what happens if you don’t like what you see?
Beckett: What happens if you don’t let me look?

Beckett: So you wrote the paper on that car company?
Castle: No. Someone else did and I paid him $250.
Beckett: Um, Castle, that happened when you were a kid. I don’t understand why that would change how I see you.
Castle: Because it hanged how I saw myself. The teacher read the paper to the entire class as an example of great writing and they applauded. It was the first time I was celebrated for anything and it was a fraud, I, I was a fraud. That’s when I learned how to write. I wrote and wrote trying to be as great as everyone thought I was, trying to earn that applause. I’m still trying.
Beckett: You’re right, Castle, it does change how I see you. Makes me like you just a little bit more.

Ryan (comes in, Jenny stands from where she sat as he closes the door and sighs): I'm sorry, Jenny. I know it wasn't fair to you.
Jenny: Just tell me the truth. Is this part of your life, this undercover part, over?
Ryan (huffs): Yeah, it is now.
Jenny: Good. Because I need to know that you're gonna be here. A-and I need to know that I can depend on you, especially after the test results we got back from the fertility doctor.
Ryan: Oh no. Bad news?
Jenny: Yeah. We took those damn tests for nothing. (Ryan sighs) I'm already pregnant.
Ryan: You're pregnant? (Jenny smile and he laughs) You're pregnant. (Jenny sniffles and chuckles as he laughs) Uh...let’s, uh, let’s pop some champagne.
Jenny (laughs): No.
Ryan: Um, no. No. We--we can’t pop any champagne. Do you know why? Because... you’re pregnant
Jenny: I'm pregnant. (laughs and they kiss)
