  • Quotes (6)

    • Beckett: That was a personal conversation.
      Leo: About how different you two are, and that worries you, right?
      Beckett: I don't want to have this discussion right now.
      Leo: And those differences that are so charming now, they may end up just pulling you apart.
      Beckett: Who are you, Dr. Phil?
      Leo: No. Just a guy that may die tonight realizing that life's short. Trust me. Living your life for now makes a lot more sense than worrying about the future.

    • Beckett: You said "different worlds".
      Castle: What?
      Beckett: (about their parents) You said that they're from different worlds and that we should just expect it. And then I started thinking about us. You're, like, this world-famous, best-selling author, and I'm just this cop and ... and we're in this relationship which makes absolutely no sense on paper. And sometimes, I just start wondering ... are we just kidding ourselves? What if this bubble bursts? What are we then?
      Castle: Kate, we're not our parents.

    • Beckett: Find some tape?
      Castle: Yes, I did. I also found a box of tools and a broken CB radio. But I think I can get it to work.
      Leo: Great. You have an engineering degree or electronics experience?
      Castle: No, but I've seen every episode of MacGyver.

    • Leo: I'm sorry. Dolan? As in Mickey Dolan, the-the mobster? Oh, God. We're gonna end up floating in the river with cement shoes on.
      Castle: Yes, well, technically, if you have cement shoes, you're not gonna be floating.
      Leo: What?
      Beckett: What?
      Castle: You're right. That's not helping.

    • Martha: Oh, well, I hope you find time to cut loose, Jim, and just do something fun.
      Jim: Oh, of course. I-I try to take in a baseball game every now and again.
      Martha: Ooh, Lord. Baseball. Isn't that dreadfully dull?
      Jim: Well, it requires a certain patience.
      Martha: (chuckles) A certain lack of pulse, you mean.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: Castle spends quite a lot of time trying to figure out the passcode for the iPhone Beckett stole from the parked car, so that they can call for backup. Since Castle has an iPhone, he should know that one does not need to unlock the phone to call 911. All cell phones in the United States must have the ability to call 911, whether locked, unlocked or even if a sim card is not installed.
