(When they are in the lift and Castle tells Beckett how long he & Kyra were together)
Beckett: I didn't ask. Castle: Yes, you were not asking very loudly.
In season 1 episode 9 Little Girl Lost, Beckett and Castle shared the same line when Beckett told Castle how long she was with her ex:
Castle: I didn't ask. Beckett: Yeah, I know. You were not asking very loudly.
Kyra: How long has it been?
Castle: Too long.
Kyra: You look exactly the same
Castle: And you've improved.
Kyra: You always did know how to turn a phrase.
Castle: So, who's the unlucky bride?
Ryan: Uh, her name is... (looking down at his notes)
Castle: (recognizing her) Kyra?
Kyra: Rick? Rick Castle.
Beckett: You two know each other?
Castle: That would be an understatement.
Castle: Detective Beckett, this is Sheila Blaine, mother of the bride. So I guess I didn't end up homeless or teaching at a third-rate college in New Hampshire after all.
Sheila: There's still time.
Castle: I've missed our special talks. Sheila didn't approve of struggling artists. You must like Greg, though. He's from money, right?
Sheila: It was never about the money, Richard. It was about character. And you would know that if you had any.
Castle: You want to take advantage of a guy, knocking him unconscious kind of defeats the purpose. Best way? Just ask.
Beckett: When I'm not here do you guys braid each others hair and debate who's the coolest Jonas Brother?
Esposito: No, but is totally Nick.
Ryan: Absolutely Nick.
Beckett: Anything else?
Lanie: You tell me.
Lanie: Don't "what" me. Castle's lost love...
Beckett: Yeah, what about it?
Lanie: (amused) Girl, I'm gonna smack you! You work side by side everyday. He writes a sex scene in his book about you that had me reaching for ice water. Now, little miss bride shows up. Don't tell me you're not the least bit jealous.
Beckett: Oh, please. You've been inhaling too many autopsy fluids. (Beckett begins to leave the room.)
Lanie: Honey, just because you can't see whats goin' on doesn't mean everyone else doesn't see what's going on!
Beckett: (from outside the room, in a singsong) Shut up!
Lanie: (to Sophie, the corpse) Mm-hmm. I see it. You may not, but I do.
(watching Alexis duct taping Castle to the chair)
Martha: Well, hurry taping up your father, don't want to be late. Oh god, I can't believe I just said that.
Ryan: Where's Castle?
Beckett: I don't know. Figured the death of a bridesmaid would be right up his alley.
Ryan: Heard wedding probably got cold feet?
