  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Beckett attends the formal party at the British Consulate she is wearing a strapless black gown. Were she to wear such a dress her bullet scar would be plainly visible, yet her skin remains unmarked with no sign of her scar.

    • Detective Inspector Colin Hunt is supposed to be British, yet actor Brett Tucker is Australian, with an accent to match.

  • Quotes

    • Beckett: Well, you're in.
      Colin: Thank you.
      Castle: What? Seriously?
      Beckett: Yeah, your supervisor at Scotland Yard said you're one of the best. Even Captain Gates was impressed with your record.
      Castle: Well, I guess it's not outsiders she doesn't like. It's just me.

    • (Lanie and Beckett enjoying some girl time over red wine at Beckett's place)
      Beckett: I'm telling you something happened. Something changed. It's been weird between us lately.
      Lanie: Lately? Kate, it's been weird for four years.
      Beckett: No, this is different. He's different. It's like he's pulling away.
      Lanie: Well, can you blame him? He's probably tired of waiting.
      Beckett: Waiting for what?
      Lanie: What do you think? The guy is crazy about you. And despite your little act, you're crazy about him. (Beckett stunned) Oh, what, was that supposed to be some big secret?
      Beckett: Yes. No.

    • Lanie: Where's Castle?
      Beckett: He took off... for a lunch date.
      Lanie: In a Ferrari full of flight attendant?
      Beckett: Yeah, he's probably trying to rack up his frequent flyer miles.
      Lanie: I'm sorry. But you know she's just a passing thing.
      Beckett: Do I? I mean, the guy has been divorced twice, and he's still chasing bimbos. Maybe that's just who he is.
      Lanie: Look, maybe it's the wrong time or maybe he's even the wrong guy, but if he is, how long are you gonna wait to find out? (about the corpses in the morgue) Ten years, I've been keeping them company while they spend a night or two here on their way to where we're all going. They all had plans, Kate, things they were gonna do when they got around to it... Go on a cruise, lose 10 pounds, fall in love. They thought they had all the time in the world. But nobody does.

    • Colin: What's she like, your captain?
      Castle: You ever see that YouTube video of the grizzly bear that decapitates a moose with one swipe of its paw?
      Colin: Comforting.
      Castle: It's nothing personal. She just doesn't like outsiders in her precinct.
      Colin: I don't need her to like it. I just need her to allow it.

    • Beckett: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
      Castle: Yeah, that we should throw a party and hire a bunch of models.
      Beckett: No. That maybe Naomi somehow got into that party last night and that that's where she met her killer. That's what I was thinking.
      Castle: Weird. We're usually more in sync than that.

    • Beckett: (about the body) Hey, Lanie, how does it look?
      Lanie: (about her relationship with Castle) Like you waited too long.
      Beckett: The vic!

    • Beckett: I just... I don't want to lose what we have, you know?
      Lanie: Girl, please. What exactly do you have, really?
      Beckett: A friendship.
      Lanie: No. What you and I have is a friendship. What you and Castle have is a holding pattern. How long can you circle before the fuel runs out?
