    • Castle: You remember that, uh, blue porcelain vase you had on your dining room table?
      Beckett: Yeah, the one that the wind blew over.
      Castle: Yeah, about that. I was playing Wii tennis in the living room--
      Beckett: You broke my vase?
      Castle: (pronounces differently) Vase. Vase is acceptable, too.
      Beckett: You know what? You can stop worrying about the spirits getting to you, because I just might kill you myself.
      Castle: Seriously, you want to spend our last day on earth fighting?

    • Wes Craven: (on the phone) Hello?
      Castle: Wes. Hey, it's Rick.
      Wes Craven: Jeez, Rick. It's after midnight.
      Castle: Yeah, sorry. I just, um, I need some advice.
      Wes Craven: Is Stephen King beating you at Texas hold 'em again?
      Castle: Yeah, right. No, but, um, this is actually about your movies. I mean, the name Wes Craven is synonymous with horror. You've made a fortune scaring the crap out of people. My Soul To Take, all the Nightmare On Elm Streets, terrifying.
      Wes Craven: So you called me up in the middle of the night to join my fan club, what?

    • Castle: Okay, does anyone have a better solution? Because we need one, if not for me, at least for Beckett.
      Beckett: Castle, that's so sweet. You want me to outlive you?
      Castle: Of course. Who else is gonna tell my tale of sacrifice and selflessness?

    • Perlmutter: (greets them as they enter the morgue) Ah, Detective Beckett and defective Castle.

    • Beckett: And, Ryan, why don't you take a look at this disc and see ...
      Ryan: Oh, I'm-I'm sorry, what?
      Esposito: Et tu, bro?
      Castle: What did you say about the story being a legend?
      Ryan: Um, well, uh, Jenny and I, we are trying to make a baby, so we're abiding by every superstition in the book.
      Beckett: Okay. Fine. Here, Espo.
      Esposito: Oh, nah. I c... I can't-I can't watch that. If I watch that, it's gonna make my partner out to be a wimp, and I can't have that.
      Ryan: Thanks, bro.
      Esposito: Yeah.
      Beckett: This is so pathetic.

    Allusions (1)

    • Castle: No, based on the fact she looks like an Edvard Munch painting. Really freaky.
      Edvard Munch, born in Norway in 1863, was active as a painter from the 1880's until shortly before his death in 1944. His art was formed by the misery and conflicts of his time and by his own unhappy life. His most famous painting is The Scream which is autobiographical.
