Beckett and Castle investigate numerous cases involving murders and home invasion jewel heists.
Det. Kate Beckett
Captain Roy Montgomery
In this episode, viewers find out about Castle's skills with pistols.
Goof: During the auction, the book being auctioned off alternates from being held by Martha to being held by Rachel and back to Martha.
When shooting a pistol, Castle is cross-dominant (fires right handed but uses his left eye to sight the target) which occurs in only 12-15 percent of the population.
Castle: (Castle and Powell break into the crime scene) You, uh, don't seem out of practice.
Powell: Just like riding a bike.
Castle: Our thieves used a bump key.
Powell: This new generation, how utterly vulgar. (Powell shines the flashlight toward the safe and sees the blood underneath) Rick, you didn't tell me they put her in the safe.
Castle: What's the significance?
Powell: The significance is, it's unnecessary. It's brutality for brutality's sake. This used to be a gentleman's game. We were like ghosts. We could walk through walls and simply disappear, but whoever did this, they're more like vampires. Taste of the blood makes them feel alive. These aren't the sort of chaps a fellow in my line of work would care to meet by chance in the dark.
Castle: Look, I get it, all right? You made a promise to a daughter to find her mother's killer. It doesn't take Freud to see what's what. But you're gonna run up some blind alleys before you get out of the maze.
Beckett: Look, as much as I appreciate your folksy Dr. Phil aphorisms, I just wanna- (Beckett shoots with anger)
Castle: Wouldn't it be more of a challenge If they weren't standing still?
Beckett: Okay, Castle. ... You show me how it's done. ... All yours. ... (Castle showing off) It's not a duel, Scaramouche. Here. Square off to the target. Feet shoulder-distance apart. Okay. Gauntlet your right fist in your left palm.
Castle: (Castle hits the wall) Shot too soon.
Becket: Yeah, well... You know, we could always just cuddle, Castle.
Castle: (With strange accent) Oh, funny. ... And a smile. Good.
Castle: Good enough to be our perp?
Ryan: Why do you writers always call them perps?
Castle: Isn't that what you call them?
Ryan: Aah, we got a lot of names for 'em.
Ryan: Pipehead. Piss-head. Orc. Creep.
(Castle takes out a notepad and starts jotting down.)
Esposito: Crook. Knuckle-head. Chuckle-head.
Ryan: Chud. Turd.
Esposito: Destro. Scum.
Ryan: Skexy. Slicko. Slick.
Castle: Slow down, slow down.
Beckett: Suspects. We call them suspects.
Roy: I'm old school. I like 'dirtbag'.
(discussing the case)
Castle: Makes me think about Alexis. What would she do if something happened to me?
Beckett: She still has her mom, right?
Castle: Meredith is more like a crazy aunt with a credit card. Of the two of us, I'm the more responsible one. Pretty sad, isn't it?
Beckett: Wee, I wouldn't worry too much, Castle. After all, only the good die young.
Castle: It can't be random. How do they know whats in the safes? Safes...is that a word? Is it "saves?" That can't be right.
Esposito: And you write for a living?
Beckett: Tell your friend to keep up his disappearing act, and the next time you show up at a crime scene without me, I'll show you how my taser works.
(Castle accidentally discharges a round from his gun)
Castle: Whoa! Shot too soon.
Beckett: Yeah, well. We can always just cuddle, Castle.
(Castle and Beckett walk by on the red carpet)
Ryan: Nice dress.
Esposito: Yeah, what there is of it.
Beckett: I'd let you borrow it Esposito, but you stretched out the last one.
Castle: In a building like this, this part of town? You'd think she'd be safe. No pun intended. How often are people killed in neighborhoods like this?
Beckett: Same as anywhere else, Castle. Just the once.

Caine Powell: Seeing comes before wanting, Rick.
Besides being a psychological fact, this is also a quote said by Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the movie The Silence of the Lambs, which made this fact widely known.
When Castle and Beckett arrive at the party, a friend greats them with "I didn't know you were going to be at this shindig" a reference to Fillion's role in the Firefly episode "Shindig." Kate's dress also resembles the more elaborate gown that Inara wore in the same episode.
