3x07 Almost Famous - Dustjackets: A Castle Wiki
  • CASTLE: Maybe he's old-school, didn't want to give up the badge he built his career on.
    LANIE: Castle, he's mid-twenties.
    CASTLE: You ever hear of a brilliant doctor named Doogie Howser?
  • CASTLE: It might interest you to know, I'm an assistant volunteer homicide detective myself.
  • CASTLE: He's not that handsome. You want my opinion, 300 bucks an hour, little steep.
    LANIE: As the person in this room who has seen everything under the sheet...bargain.
  • ESPOSITO: Three years varsity ball, two years Special Forces triathlon, and NYPD calendar 2007. What?
    RYAN: It was a group photo.
    ESPO: I got letters.
    RYAN: Yeah, three, two of them from your mom.
    ESPOSITO: One of them from my mom.

JUST THE FACTS
Go here to discuss the spec
  • Esposito played varsity baseball for three years. He was also in the Special Forces and did the triathlon for two years.
  • Alexis' school is doing Grease and she tries out, and is shortlisted for Sandy. She doesn't get the part but decides to be stage manager instead.
  • Martha once played an elf in Santa's village and Lady Liberty outside a low-rent tax service. The worst job she ever had was being a secretary.
  • Beckett is still looking for a new apartment.
OOPS
  • A car as old as Derek's wouldn't be likely to have a remote unlock like that.
