  • LANIE: Do you know how long I have to shower before heading out on a date?
    CASTLE: No, but if you need someone to time it for you, I'd be happy to--
  • CASTLE: But you're busy, and I just don't want her to be in the way.
    BECKETT: Big Castle is the one who likes to get in the way. I'm sure Little Castle will be a pleasure.
  • RYAN: My girlfriend freaks out if I don't check in like every hour.
    ESPOSITO: You do check in, like, every hour.(Ryan's phone rings) Sometimes more.
  • CASTLE: You know what math doesn't add up for me? Two wives.
    BECKETT: One wife too many for you?
    CASTLE: Two wives too many.
    BECKET: Seems like the common denominator in that equation is - you.
  • CASTLE: That ever happen to you with me? One day you look and you see your boy is all grown up?
    MARTHA: I'm still waiting for that moment, actually.
    CASTLE: I set you up for that, didn't I?
  • CASTLE: That was pretty cool the way you filled in the story there. Think I must be rubbing off on you. (off her look) That sounded dirtier than I meant it.
  • CASTE: A wife and fiancée cat fight? Please tell me we can stop for popcorn on the way.
  • CASTLE: Our love triangle just became a love square.
  • MONTGOMERY: Is that our vic's wife?
  • CASTLE: The wife is over there.
    MONTGOMERY: Come again?
    CASTLE AND BECKETT: Wife (tilts heads to the left), fiancée (tilts heads to the right)
Go here to discuss the spec
  • Alexis is taking a civics class, and every student has to do a three-day volunteer internship at one of the city's agencies. The bags she arrives with probably containing the Baby Beckett outfits she wears at the precinct.
  • Lanie apparently has to shower a Very Long Time to get rid of the morgue smell before going out.
  • Beckett has been known to sleep on the break room couch when she's working on a case, though it's not certain if Castle knows this because he's been told, or because he's caught her at it.
  • Capt. Montgomery has a son, who is old enough to have gone to summer camp at least once (probably a teenager now). Montgomery followed his bus all the way to the Adirondacks.
  • Castle hid in the bushes outside the school the first day Alexis started.

  • The wife says that Sam switched jobs when he was passed over for promotion because "there aren't a lot of jobs in green solutions" but many experts say that green technology is one of the fastest growing job markets.
  • "I'm sure little Castle will be a pleasure." -- Did they really think about that line?
  • When Beckett and Castle are talking about math equations, the pen in Beckett's hand goes from being top up to top down, depending on the camera angle.
