  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (5)

    • Beckett: Who hired you? I put a lot of people in this place. Some of them want to kill me. Others, never been treated so fairly in their lives. So they form this attachment to me. It's like I'm their favorite schoolteacher. Some of those people might visit you while you're in here... like the ghosts that visit Scrooge. And after some time with them, you might find yourself a changed man. So I will be back here week after week to ask you who hired you... until that miracle occurs.

    • Beckett: It's not your fight. Castle: The hell it isn't. I don't hang around you just to annoy you. I don't ride out to murder scenes in the middle of the night to satisfy some morbid curiosity. If that's all this was, I would've quit a long time ago. Beckett: Well, then why do you keep coming back, Rick? Castle: Look, I may not have a badge, unless you count the chocolate one that Alexis gave me for my birthday, but I'll tell you this... like it or not, I'm your plucky sidekick. Beckett: Plucky sidekick always gets killed. Castle: Partner, then.

    • Martha: Richard, this isn't one of your books. You don't know the ending. You were just lucky yesterday. Castle: You're overreacting, mother. Where is this coming from? Martha: How the hell can you ask me something like that? Think about how much you love Alexis, and that is how much I love you. And don't you dare ask me where th-this is coming from. You have gotten through most of your life on your wit and charm and no small amount of talent. But that is the real world out there, and you can't charm your way out of a bullet.

    • Captain Montgomery: You're thinking, what was Raglan gonna tell me before he died, when you should be thinking how you're gonna catch the guy that killed him. Beckett: Sir, Raglan was killed because he was gonna tell me something about my mother's case. Nobody knows it better than I do. Captain Montgomery: Yeah, but I know you. You're gonna want to pick up those scissors and run around the house with 'em, but I'm telling you now, walk, don't run. Go where the evidence leads, not the other way around.

    • Raglan: (about Castle) Lady, what part of no cops didn't you understand? Beckett: He's not a cop. Raglan: Well, who the hell is he, then? Beckett: He's someone I trust.
