      Castle: For me please.
      Beckett: I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

    • Castle: (to Alexis) I can promise you this. If two people believe in something, really believe, anything, even the impossible, is possible.

      Lanie: Exactly. It doesn't make sense.
      Castle: Unless the blood passed right through the killer.
      Lanie: Are you saying a ghost did this?
      Beckett: Please don't encourage him.
