  • Trivia

    • Castle's mother Martha Rodgers(with Alexis Castle help) was setting up a profile on a social networking website what she call "Myface" account. The name is an obvious combination of Myspace and Facebook.

    • Goof: At the beginning of the episode when the biker is ran over by the car we can see that the bike is almost under the front part of the car, which would make it impossible for the killer to escape the scene without using the reverse gear, yet in the next scene he just drives forward with enough room to steer the car away without even running over the bike.

    • Gregg Henry has appeared on screen with Nathan Fillion in Slither and in an episode of Firefly - The Train Job.

    • Gregg Henry who played one of the Wellsley brothers was Wesley on "Rich Man Poor Man". Susan Sullivan the "mother" was also on "Rich Man Poor Man" back in the day.

  • Quotes

    • Alexis: I can't believe how many lives were ruined over one woman's need to protect her family's reputation.
      Castle: You will never have this problem between Grams and myself… our family reputation's already in ruins.
      Alexis: Lucky me.

    • Beckett: Are you looking at porn?
      Castle: I use Ryan's computer for that.

    • Castle: Let me borrow your magnifying glass.
      Beckett: I don't have a magnifying glass.
      Castle: Isn't that standard issue for detectives?
      Beckett: No, not since Sherlock Holmes.

    • Castle: This guy's got contingency plans for his contingency plans, it's like we're battling a super villain.

    • Castle: What are you ladies doing?
      Martha: Alexis is assisting me in creating a MyFace account.
      Castle: I think you mean--
      Alexis: Save your breath. I've been correcting her the whole morning.

    • Martha: (looking at her social networking page) OMG! Chet Palaburn.
      Castle: Who's Chet Palaburn?
      Martha: Star athlete. Class president. Homecoming king. My high school sweetheart. And my first.
      Castle: I really didn't need to know that last one.

    • Montgomery: (to Beckett) Two fresh bodies and you want to look at a murder ten years cold?
      Castle: (interrupts) When I'm writing a story, the beginning is always the hardest. But if you nail that, the rest of it could just fall into place.
      Montgomery: Castle, this is not one of your books.
      Castle: No, but it is a mystery. And all mysteries are the same. Motive. Opportunity. Cover-up. Conscience. These murders today would have covered up one ten years ago.

    • Montgomery: Thank you for your offer. However, my detectives will conduct their investigation in any manner they see fit.
      Blake Wellesley: Captain, I can get the Commissioner on the phone in under a minute.
      Montgomery: Well, tell him I said hi... and I really could use a raise.

    • Alexis: Looking good, Grams! A date?
      Martha: Dining and dancing with Chet Palaburn.
      Castle: What if he turns out to be bloated and ugly?
      Martha: Oh! How superficial do you think I am?
      Castle: Intensely.
