  • Quotes

    • Castle: Whoa!
      Looks like you made a serious dent in your surprise inheritance. Is it safe to say there is not an animal print left in any store in New York City?
      Martha: Very funny.
      (after looking at her coat and saying seriously) Probably true.

    • Page Brother: Got out the joint for good behavior. Dude called us up, said he needed a savior.
      Castle: Stop rapping. I'll buy the album.

    • Esposito: Oz, aka Marvin Osminkowski...
      Castle: No wonder he changed his name.

    • Castle: I know it's a long shot, but if we can figure out what these numbers signify, we might be able to find the ticket's real owner.
      Captain Montgomery: I play my kids' birthdays.
      Esposito: I play my firsts... sex and combat.
      Ryan: I play his firsts, too. What? That way, we both win, and it's not awkward.

    • Castle: Money doesn't change who you are. It just magnifies your personality.

    • Esposito: A winery, huh?
      Ryan: Jenny and I visited one on our first vacation together.
      Esposito: $100 mil, and you're gonna become a farmer? The fiancée really has done some damage on you, bro.

    • Esposito: He also bought a house for the clerk that sold him the winning ticket, a mausoleum for his dead neighbor, and 3 acres on the moon.
      Castle: Get outta town. He's right down the crater from me.
      Beckett: Why doesn't it surprise me that you have property on the moon?
      Castle: You know what? Laugh it up. When the earth is a desiccated husk, you will be begging to come live with me in the nectaris basin.

    • Castle: Three cops and a writer, that makes four. You're under arrest so get on the floor.
