  • Trivia

    • When Kate is shown talking on the phone to Ryan and Esposito while in the van her paramedic uniform is buttoned to the top, but when she steps outside of the van the uniform is half open.

    • Goof: When Kate comes into the bank as a paramedic, she is not wearing gloves. Then when she takes the message from Castle, she is wearing on her right hand a glove, and when she gets out of the bank and gives the patient to the other 2 paramedics, she is wearing gloves on both hands.

  • Quotes

    • Beckett: Listen to me, jackass. I do not control traffic, so you're gonna have to give me 20 minutes.
      Trapper John: Now you got one minute, Kate.
      Beckett: No. I've got 20. Do you hear me? 20. Because if you pull that trigger, I will walk through those doors and personally put a bullet through your skull.
      Trapper John: Okay, Kate. You got 20 more minutes.
      Peterson: Well, that's one way to negotiate.

    • Esposito: I don't get it this is a little old retired librarian. What could possibly be in her safe deposit box that would be worth doing all this.
      Ryan: Nazi gold, cold fusion, map to Atlantis.
      Esposito: Hey, Castle Jr., could you maybe start thinking like a cop, please?

    • Beckett: Sir, what do you want me to do?
      Peterson: Nothing.
      Beckett: I'm sorry?
      Peterson: It's not a homicide, detective. Not about moving forward or digging for the next clue. Here sometimes, no move is the best move.

    • Castle: (to Martha) Mother, I am no longer satisfied with the Customer Service of this establishment. I think we should take our business elsewhere.

    • Beckett: Listen to me, so far nobody has been hurt and nothing has been stolen. So, if you just leave, the same way that you came in, you can just disappear.
      Trapper John: You got to promise not to come and look for me.
      Beckett: I don't look, I hunt. And trust me, you don't want that. So leave now, and this will just be a quirky little article in the metro section.
      Trapper John: Sorry sweetheart, I'd rather make the front page.
