  • A return to the more comical and whimsical Castle that we now know and love, after last week's more dramatic set of events. Plenty of great one-liners and an escalation to the sexual tension between the two lead characters.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Castle: You ask me... she should've followed her heart, left David, gone with Wolf.
      Beckett: You know, I can see the virtue in staying. I mean, guys like Wolf, they come in, they upset the apple cart. Of course he makes you feel alive, but eventually, you know he's just gonna let you down. So why risk it?
      Castle: Because the heart wants what the heart wants.

    • Madison: Okay, next time I'm hitting on a guy you like, come clean with me before I go out with him so you don't have to arrest me to break up the date! Beckett: Madison that's not.. Madison: No, no, no. I get it. You're hot for Castle. You want to make little Castle babies. (Beckett is horrified) Why couldn't you just be honest? Beckett: (whispers) Maddie! Madison: What? Beckett: (whispers) He can hear us! Madison: Oh?! Really? Beckett: Yes! Madison: He's behind the mirror? Beckett: Yeah! Madison: Oh! Like on tv? Madison: (to the mirror) Hey there! Sorry we missed the pumpkin gnocchi; they're really good. (Castle knocks on the two-way mirror, Madison giggles) I have to tweet about this!

    • Castle: (to Beckett about a suspect) Oh well, lying cheating wife was telling the truth.

    • Beckett: Did you throw something at him? Because I remember you throwing things at people when you got angry. Madison: Oh, come on. Don't you people have rules about using personal knowledge against suspects?

    • Castle: High School friend, huh? I bet she knows where all your bodies are buried. Beckett: You can dig all you want, Castle. My secrets are safe with her. Castle: How can you be sure? Beckett: Because whatever she knows about me, I know worse about her. We used to hang out, big group of us, had a good time. Castle: And... What's a good time? Beckett: Well, if you don't know by now, I'm sure it's too late to show you one.
