  • Quotes

    • (They find a victim whose internal organs have been removed.)
      Castle: Somebody hated his guts.

    • Martha: So, has she forgiven you?
      Castle: Ah, not exactly, mother, but I'm working on it. She has agreed to let me help on the case.
      Martha: Well, that's a start, I suppose.
      Castle: It is more than a start. It is an opportunity. She may have built a wall between us, but I am going to build a door in that wall, or put up a ladder, or dig a hole.
      Martha: You have a strategy.
      Castle: Be my usual charming self.
      Martha: Aha. What about plan B?

    • Castle: Thanks for saving my life.
      Beckett: Ah, I was just trying to avoid paperwork.

    • Beckett: (in accent) Sometime when I am bored I go to cafe in little Odesa and pretend to be Moskevite.
      Esposito: That's kinda hot.

    • Castle: Dad where are you? Dad are you all right? Dad call us right away. Dad can I go see Fame with Owen on Friday? Your concern is touching.

    • Alexis: So was it awful? Were you scared?
      Castle: Me? Scared? No way, come on. Now excuse while I change my shorts.

    • Esposito: Who would steal a dead body?
      Castle: Oh plenty of people. Organ harvesters, cadaverless med students, satanists, mad scientists looking to create their own monster.

    • Captain: Well?
      Lanie: He'll live.
      Ryan: What no brain damage?
      Lanie: If he has some, it happened way before tonight and was probably self inflicted.
      Castle: Ahh, good times.

    • Esposito: Hey Beckett, how come you don't wear a uniform like that?
      Beckett: Because I don't want to get paid in singles.

    • Beckett: Not only does he have the bachelor party cop twins out there using him as a stripper pole while I make nicy nice with the press, but you know what he said?
      Captain: No..
      Beckett: He said he has been instrumental in helping us solve crimes.
      Captain: Well hasn't he?
      Beckett: That's not the point.

    • Reporter: Given all his bestsellers, it's obvious Mr. Castle has tremendous insight into the criminal mind. I'm told in many occasions his participation was essential to solving you toughest cases.
      Beckett: Really? You were told that? By who?
      Reporter: By Castle.

    • Castle: There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people. Psychopaths and mystery writers. I'm the kind that pays better.

    • Castle: We make a pretty good team, you know. Like Starsky and Hutch, Tango and Cash...Turner and Hooch.
      Beckett: You know, now that you mention it, you do remind me a little of Hooch.

    • (Lanie is dusting for fingerprints)
      Castle: You want me to put on some music? Whenever they do this sorta thing on CSI, they always do it to music in poorly lit rooms...kinda reminds me of porn.
      Beckett: Zip it, Castle.

    • Castle: Hey! Can we talk about this, please?
      Beckett: There's nothing to talk about.
      Castle: Well, at least let me know what I can do to make it up to you.
      Beckett: You can leave me alone.
      Castle: Yes, I tried that and it didn't work. Hey! I can buy you a pony!
