  • Trivia

    • Goof: During the 2nd poker game the mayor folds to his own raise completely bypassing Castle and Beckett.

    • Goof: Cynthia's so called dead body in the cold room was breathing, as well as her eyelashes wavering. This is not a character goof, but is the actress's.

  • Quotes

    • Castle:: Remind me if I ever decide to write a memoir to never write a memoir.
      Beckett:: Okay... Why not?
      Castle:: Because memoir's are about truth and I'm not a very truthful person. It'd be too easy to make myself look good.

      Beckett:: It might be harder than you think.

    • Beckett: What are we playing for?
      Castle: Pride...or clothing.
      Beckett: I think I got a bag of gummy bears.

    • Castle: All these years trying to do the right thing, trying to make amends and because of Cynthia's greed, she's going to end up in jail.
      Beckett: If you're looking for a happy ending, you've come to the wrong place.
      Castle: Next time, I guess I'll just try that massage parlor on 2nd avenue.

    • Castle: Someone say murder? Hold on, I'll get my coat!
      Esposito: Look at him, all excited.
      Beckett: Yeah, like a kid at Christmas.
      Ryan: With a dead body under the tree.

  • Allusions

    • Castle: Look who's stalking.

      Castle is paraphrasing the title of the 1989 movie Look Who's Talking that starred John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and the voice of Bruce Willis. The title is one of the more heavily alluded-to phrases due to its common use in the English language.
