Beckett: So I was a Nebula-9 fan. Big deal.
Castle: Oh, you were beyond a fan. You dressed up in costume. You.
Beckett: Okay, yes. I was a sci-fi loving, costume wearing geek. And you know what? Not ashamed of it or of Nebula-9. Despite what you think, it was an awesome show.
Castle: Hmm. I'll tell you what. I'll forgive you your terrible taste, if you (Castle eyes Beckett) try on that Nebula-9 costume for me.
Beckett: In your dreams.
Castle: Look at my life. My dreams come true.
Beckett: Are you saying...
Castle: She was killed by a phaser?
Perlmutter: Well, as much as it pains me, Mr. Castle is marginally correct. She was killed by a high-intensity laser beam.
Castle: A real sci-fi murder, at a Sci-Fi convention. Just keeps getting better.
Castle: Tell me, you guys, do you think my hair is thinning?
Beckett: You're not losing your hair, Castle.
Castle: Okay, so if I wake up bald tomorrow, you'll still be attracted to me? (Beckett pauses) Oh, my God. You wouldn't.
Beckett: I didn't say that.
Castle: No, but you were thinking it. I can see it in your ...
Esposito: With that pumpkin head? Dude.
Beckett: Just goes to show you, sometimes people aren't what they appear to be.
Castle: For Alexis' sake, I hope you're right, given what she was wearing.
Beckett: Castle, she is a full-grown woman.
Castle: Who, as we speak, is being ogled by thousands of sweaty, lecherous fan boys. It's just so ... wrong.
Beckett: Can I just point out the fact that the costume that she was wearing is not so different from the one that you are asking me to wear?
Castle: Don't say that! That ... it's confusing and disturbing.
Castle: Let's go back to the e-mails of the crazed Nebula-9 fans. And when I say crazed fans, I'm, I'm not referring to you. You ... are a mega fan.
Beckett: Nice one coming from the guy with a life-size Boba Fett in his bathroom.
Castle: Point taken.
Perlmutter: Detective Beckett.
Perlmutter: And non-detective Castle.
Castle: Perlmutter, good to see you.
Perlmutter: Ah, if only the feeling were mutual.

Castle: Let's make sure that history never forgets the name Enterprise.
This exact line was spoken by Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Gene Roddenberry's television series Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994), episode Yesterday's Enterprise (1990).
Castle: I'm a fan of good sci-fi. StarTrek, Battlestar, that Joss Whedon show, but Nebula 9, nah, nah. It's all phony melodrama and lifeless acting.
That Joss Whedon show alludes to the television series Firefly (2002-2003) by writer and creator Joss Whedon in which Castle actor Nathan Fillion portrayed the main protagonist, Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds.
