  • Trivia

    • Goof: Cuba does not have a consulate in New York City, or an embassy in Washington, D.C. Instead, Cuba has an interests section in Washington, D.C. and a mission to the United Nations in New York City. Detective Beckett is correct when she states that the head of the "Cuban Consulate" does not have diplomatic immunity. He would have more limited consular immunity. However, the head of a mission to the United Nations would have full diplomatic immunity.

  • Quotes

    • Beckett: (About Castle's family) Con artists and circus people, huh?
      Castle: And mindreaders.
      Beckett: Really? Tell me what I'm thinking.
      Castle: Ah! You... You are thinking... 'You don't care and you want me to stop talking'.
      Beckett: Uh! That's uncanny!
      Castle: It's in the blood.

    • Castle: Did you just use the word "veritable" in a sentence?
      Beckett: Yes, I did.
      Castle: Sexy!
      Beckett: You should hear me say "fallacious".

  • Allusions

    • Esposito: So your Dad, what is it - a Mamma Mia thing? Early seventies, free love; yeah I bet your mom was kinda wild back then.

      Mamma Mia is a stage musical (later adapted into a film of the same name) created by producer Judy Craymer. The musical constructs a fictional plot around the band Abba's greatest hits and centers on a young girl's attempt to identify her father by inviting the three men her mother was dating around the time of her conception to her upcoming wedding. Unknown to the daughter, her mother does not know which of the three men fathered her child either.

    • The title of this episode Suicide Squeeze is a baseball term. Suicide Squeeze is a high-risk, high-reward offensive play in baseball. The suicide squeeze is a variation of the squeeze play, which occurs when a ball is bunted with a runner on third and less than two outs. In a suicide squeeze, the runner breaks for home as soon as the pitch is thrown.
