  • Quotes

    • Castle: Why, Detective Beckett. I had no idea you were a romantic.
      Beckett: I also sleep with a gun. I bet you didn't know that either.

    • Jeremy: An ex-wife that I can't remember.
      Castle: Hey! Some men would consider you lucky.

    • Beckett: He's got asthma. He's allergic to cats. He reads.
      Ryan: And he's good at math and he can't draw. Put it together. He's your average maths athlete with a lot of crap in his pockets.

    • Beckett: Good thing he reads.
      Ryan: Good thing he reads Russian Literature. If the guy was a Nicholas Sparks fan, he'd be dead.

    • Ryan: CSU's re-swept the scene, twice, no sign of our fifth bullet.
      Castle: I'm telling you, ice bullet.
      Esposito: Nah Bro, an ice bullet would still make a bullet-hole.
      Ryan: You mean ice-hole.
      Castle: What did you just call me?

  • Allusions

    • Castle: Stephen King wrote stories about bloodthirsty cars and sold millions of copies. I figure, why be limited by logic?

      Castle is of course referring to King's 1983 horror novel Christine, which was made into a film the very same year.
