Dr. Lanie Parrish: Let's face it, New Yorkers are famous for their hear no evil, see no evil attitude.
Richard Castle: We'll call you K-Becks
Martha Rogers: You are not another man. Besides I trained you.
Richard Castle: Either a UFO just landed on the other side of the park...
Kate Beckett: Or else the FBI is here to claim jurisdiction on the case.
Richard Castle: Maybe they just want to ride on the carousel before the line gets too long.
Jordan Shaw: I also play a mean game of scrabble.
Richard Castle: Wow, there is a app for that?
Jordan Shaw: That's why I joined the FBI Mr. Castle - for the toys!
Kate Beckett: Tell me everything you know about Jordan Shaw.
Richard Castle: She is like the federal you. She is good, real good.
Jordan Shaw: It takes a mind to hunt a mind.
Jordan Shaw: If our killer is obsessed with Nikki Heat, than so are we.
Kate Beckett: He, um, touches things.
Richard Castle: Maybe in my third book Nikki Heat will cross swords with a good looking yet cold-hearted profiler. Call it Federal Heat. (Beckett glares at Castle)
Richard Castle: Or maybe not.
Jordan Shaw: So how long have you two been sleeping together?
Kate Beckett: Um, we're not sleeping together. He just observes me.
Jordan Shaw: Yeah I've seen the way he observes you.
Richard Castle: No she's s right. Besides my second wife, this is the most sexless relationship I've ever been in.
Jordan Shaw: I've been profiling people a long time. I'm hardly ever wrong.
Kate Beckett: Well this time you are...wrong.
Jordan Shaw: So if you're not sleeping together, why do you keep him around?
Richard Castle: You know I can hear you.
Kate Beckett: He's actually proven to be surprisingly helpful.
Jordan Shaw: I'll take your word on that.
Jordan Shaw: [to Castle, who is playing with Jordan's tazer] Put...the tazer...down.
Richard Castle: See, I'm helping.
Jordan Shaw: Yeah, I'll buy you an ice cream later.
Richard Castle: Taking it old school?
Kate Beckett: The white board has always worked for me.
Jordan Shaw: I see what you mean by him being helpful.
Richard Castle: I never intended to put her in harms way.
Martha Rogers: Let me tell you something about Detective Beckett. That gal can take care of herself. Really.
Richard Castle: No, I'm not leaving. I am here to protect you.
Kate Beckett: What with your vast arsenal of rapier wit?
Richard Castle: There is a mad man gunning for you because of me. I am not going to leave you alone.
Kate Beckett: Ok, fine I'm too tired to argue. But if I see that door knob turn I will have you know Mr. Castle, I sleep with a gun.
Richard Castle: Understood.
Kate Beckett: You're still here and you're making pancakes.
Richard Castle: I was hoping for bacon and eggs but your eggs have expired and your bacon has something furry on them.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, well I mostly order in.
Richard Castle: I figured that with the styrofoam temple you got going on in the refrigerator.
Kevin Ryan: What kind of breakfast was he making?
Kate Beckett: Pancakes.
Kevin Ryan: Well isn't that domestic.
Javier Espositio: Pancakes is not just breakfast. It is an edible way of saying thank you so much for last night.
Richard Castle: There are no details!
Javier Esposito: I can't even look at you right now.
Kevin Ryan: Witness refuses to cooperate.
Jordan Shaw: Why don't you two escort the body to the morgue, once you're dressed, of course.
Richard Castle & Kate Beckett: [together] He's a taxidermist!
Dr. Lanie Parrish: So cute the way you two do that.
Kate Beckett: Seems a little absurd.
Jordan Shaw: You must be a cat lover.
Richard Castle: Nikki will burn. I can see the poetry in that. The terrible homicidal poetry.
Jordan Shaw: If the pattern holds, he should have a four-letter word for us.
Kate Beckett: It’s funny. I have a four-letter word for him too.
Jordan Shaw: [talking on the phone to her child] Mommy’s gotta go arrest someone, OK? I’ll be home for dinner.
