Martha: Why on earth would you go back knowing how she feels, knowing that she lied to you...
Castle: No, no, this isn't about her. This is... (referring to the bombing victims) This is about them. You know, it's about doing something real... Something that matters. I'm not willing to let that go.
Martha: Richard, love is not a switch. You can't just turn it off. You can't work side by side with her and not feel anything.
Castle: Watch me.
Castle: You're a pretty smart kid, you know that?
Alexis: Well, they say genius...skips a generation.
Castle: Apparently, so does funny.
Martha: Richard, how much longer are you gonna drag your heels before you tell Beckett how you feel? And I mean while she is awake, not lying on the ground with a bullet in her chest.
Castle: You don't understand...
Martha: It's complicated, so you say. Only it's not. It's not. Nobody's tomorrows are guaranteed, right? Wouldn't it be better to tell her even if the timing is wrong than never to tell her at all?
Castle: And what if she isn't ready?
Martha: Then she never will be. Then you move on.
Martha: Honey, do you ever wonder why I never visited you at the precinct the first year you were working there?
Castle: I always thought it was because of the harsh lighting.
Martha: Well, that was a consideration.
Castle: So their deaths were random. You know, most of our victims, they...they die for a reason. You know, there's a logic behind it. It's a twisted logic at times, but... at least it makes some kind of sense.
Beckett: Yeah, but in this case, these people were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Castle: And their future and all their plans, everything is just gone in a flash.
Beckett: It makes you think about all those things in your own life that you don't want to put off anymore.
