    • Castle: I'd like to come with you. I think I can help.
      Beckett: I don't think you can.
      Castle: Look, I heard what you said. I did. And I think I can be a valuable asset. I play poker with the guy. I can tell when he's bluffing.
      Beckett: And what about if I have to force his hand, can you be an asset then?
      Castle: Look, I don't think he did it. But if he did, I want to know. That makes me objective.

    • Castle: "Officer and a Gentleman". That could be the name of our crime blog.
      Beckett: Crime blog? The way that you help me write police reports? Got a feeling I'll be writing that one on my own.

    • Capt. Gates: Are you sure about this?
      Beckett: Yes, sir, but the moment I file a warrant request for that coat, it becomes public record.
      Capt. Gates: So?
      Beckett: So then everyone will know that Mayor Weldon is a person of interest.
      Capt. Gates: Isn't he?
      Beckett: Yes, but... what if I'm wrong? It could ruin his career.
      Capt. Gates: We... are tasked by the city of New York to protect its people. Sometimes that task comes with a cost. I know what they call me, detective, Iron Gates. I hear the whispers. She's from IA. She must hate cops. Well, the truth is, I love cops. My daddy was a cop. My uncles were cops. But the sergeant who assaulted my patrol partner under the color or authority... who holds him accountable? We do. Go to the mayor, get him to voluntarily surrender his coat for fiber testing without a warrant. Tell him it's the only way to keep it out of the media. But if he refuses, you get that warrant and you do your job, whatever the cost.

    • Castle: Brown cashmere. So we can narrow our suspects down to rich men with impeccable taste.
      Beckett: (smiles) Are you saying, you're a suspect?
      Castle: Alexis is my alibi.

    • Castle: No cell phone and no credit cards? It's like she's from another century.
      Esposito: Amish theory's looking pretty good, bro.
