MEMORABLE MOMENTS

QUOTABLE QUOTES

  • Beckett's 'big date' - Heat Wave and a hot bath.
  • Alexis cutting Daddy into little pieces in the interrogation room.
  • Beckett trying to sneak-read page 105 in the precinct loo, and being caught by Castle.
  • BECKETT: You've got a guy in the CIA?
    CASTLE: When are you going to learn? I've got a guy everywhere.
  • CASTLE: I freaked out a little bit, didn't I?
    BECKETT: Welcome to parenting a teenage girl. As someone who used to be one, you have my sympathy.
  • BECKETT: But we saw him die.
    CASTLE: Did we?
    BECKETT: I hate this case.
    CASTLE: I know, isn't it great?
  • CASTLE: Aha!
    BECKETT: Castle! What are you doin' here?
    CASTLE: I knew you were reading it.
    BECKETT: I--wa--was--
    CASTLE: It's on page 105, by the way.
    BECKETT: What?
    CASTLE: That sex scene you were looking for. And Agent Grey was right...it's steamy.
    BECKETT: I wasn't--
    CASTLE: See you tomorrow!
  • BECKETT: What if I told you that my date was with your book?
    CASTLE: (hopeful) Really?
    BECKETT: No! God, you're easy.
  • BECKETT: Shut the front door.
    CASTLE: No time for dirty talk, go get changed.

JUST THE FACTS

Go here to discuss the spec
  • Beckett has a sparring partner at the precinct.
  • Alexis plays the violin and appears to have some talent. Her tutor is a very cute guy from Juilliard.
  • Storm Warning is about spies. Castle got his information for this book from the mysterious Agent Grey.
OOPS
  • Beckett enters the name "Stephen Dashkov" into VI-CAP to see if any of his identities were flagged. They get a hit on a "Patty Shultz" who was conned by a "Stephen Miles." A person who was conned by a "Miles" shouldn't have come up when VI-CAP was searching for "Dashkov" and Beckett only ever typed in one name.
  • When Ryan shows Castle and Beckett the recording in Susan's trunk, a red actor mark can be seen on the ground.
  • Martha's bow strokes at the end do not match the notes being played.
