Castle: Ask me why I’m here.
Beckett: You know, I ask myself that question every day.
Castle: That was Paula, my agent, with big news about my book Heat Wave.
Beckett: Mmhmm.
Castle: Wanna guess?
Beckett: Guessing would imply caring.

Castle: Who do you want to play you in the Nikki Heat movie?
Lanie: Halle Berry.
Castle: (To Beckett) See? Some people are just great at that game. You know who we could get for you? Angelina. No. Kate Beckett, Kate Beckinsale. We’ll call you K-Becks.

Castle: What is it?
Beckett: He called to report his crime. And that voice… It’s like he did this for fun.

Castle: Either a U.F.O. just landed on the other side of the park…
Beckett: Or else the FBI is here to claim jurisdiction over this case.
Castle: Maybe they just want to ride on the carousel before the line gets too long.

Castle: The same Jordan Shaw that broke the Hudson Valley Strangler case back in 1991?
Jordan Shaw: I also play a mean game of Scrabble.

Jordan: Detective, the gods in the marble halls have sent me here to catch a killer, which I will do with or without your help, okay? Now could I see the body?
Castle: That is so going in the movie. Can you say that again, but start from "Marble halls"?

Jordan: So if you’re not sleeping together, why do you keep him around?
Castle: You know I can hear you?

(Castle powers up Jordan’s taser, it whirls and beeps)
Jordan: Put…the taser…down.

Castle: See, I’m helping.
Jordan: Yeah, I’ll buy you an ice cream later.

(Castle finds Martha watching an old episode of herself in The Incredible Hulk TV show)
Castle: Wow. One of your old wedding videos.
Martha: (Laughs) Oh-ho-ho. Are you kidding? This guy’s a pushover compared to my ex-husbands.

Castle: This case, it just…If it wasn’t for my book –
Martha: What are you gonna do, darling, stop writing because some idiot has got a screw loose?
Castle: No, it’s just…I never intended to put her in harm’s way.
