Castle: (Elevator stops) No reason to panic. (Lights in elevator go off) Small reason to panic.
Castle: (after cutting himself) What's the difference between cursed and clumsy?
Alexis: I'll get a band aid.
Castle: Get two.
Castle: If something were to happen to me I want you to watch out for Alexis. She looks up to you, and if her boyfriends get frisky you can shoot them.
Beckett: Nothing is gonna happen to you.
Castle: But if it does...?
Castle: And would you also go into my closet and get rid of my porn collection before she finds it?
Esposito: Don't worry, Bro. I got you covered on that.
Beckett: Either you are being a good cop or you just wanna go to the museum?
Castle: They have dinosaurs there.
Captain Roy Montgomery : (talking to Dets. Ryan and Esposito) There's no upside in screwing with things you can't explain.
Castle: Do you believe people get what they deserve?
Beckett: Well, if they do then I must have done something terrible to be punished with you.
Beckett: (referring to Castle's story about the numerous times he took Alexis to the museum) You know Castle, sometimes I forget that you have such a capacity for pure innocence in your life.
Castle: Yeah, plus it was a great place to pick up chicks.
Beckett: Then you open your mouth and you ruin it.

Castle: This is the part where you say: "and I would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids".
These are both direct references to the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in which both these dialogues are used very often.
Captain Roy Montgomery: My partner drops dead heart attack ...The man ate bacon with every meal.
A reference to a line in the movie City Slickers, when at Curly's funeral, Phil Berquist (Daniel Stern) explains Curly's death: The man ate bacon at every meal... you... you can't do that!
In the scene in which Castle peeks into the Maya king's sarcophagus, he's wearing a fedora of the style worn by Indiana Jones. Castle's motions as he opens the sarcophagus are also very reminiscent of Indy's in the opening scene of "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
