  • Trivia

    • Goof: After Castle suggests they should check out the billing department of the hospital, we see him coming back to the office with 2 cups of coffee. He gets near Beckett and after she gives Esposito a paper with an account number, the camera angle cuts back to Castle and he's now holding only one cup of coffee with both hands.

  • Quotes

    • Castle:: If I say yes will you promise to stay out past your bedtime and have a good time?
      Alexis:: Yes!
      Castle:: Not... Not too good a time.
      Alexis:: Dad, all we've done is hold hands
      Castle:: Eww, okay please, don't need details

    • Capt. Montgomery (about a suspect who has undergone many face lifts): At the very least, she should be arrested for violating the laws of nature.

    • Beckett: You want to ask the mob who the witness is?
      Castle: Clearly they already know who he is if they're trying to kill him. Like you said, he's gotta be a significant witness in a pretty big case.
      Beckett: So what do we do? Hop in the car and drive down to the Bada Bing?

    • Esposito: Wow, look at her. How can anyone do that to themselves?
      Castle: Right? It's like she escaped from the Island of Dr. Moreau.
      Beckett: Come on guys, she's not an animal. She's a human being.
      Castle: Yeah, I know but...wait are you being sincere, or quoting the Elephant Man?

    • Beckett: I'm not running a background check on your daughter's date.
      Castle: Oh, come on! She says he's quiet, he keeps to himself, and he lives with his parents. Tell me that doesn't sound like a serial killer to you!

    • (Castle stares as a well-endowed blonde walks past)
      Beckett: (Clears throat) Ahem. What's the deal with men and boobs, anyway?
      Castle: Biological. We can't help it.
      Beckett: But doesn't it bother you that they're so obviously not real?
      Castle: (Pauses) Santa's not real. We still love opening his presents.
