MEMORABLE MOMENTS

QUOTABLE QUOTES

  • Ryan reporting to Castle rather than Beckett.
  • Yusef smelling Beckett's hair.
  • Opening the storage locker.
  • Fallon's arrival.
  • Beckett and Castle in the radiation tent.
  • Fallon interrogating Nazihah.
  • ESPOSITO: Everything points to him being popped for cash and car parts.
    LANIE: Not everything, baby.
    BECKETT: Did you just call him baby?
    LANIE: Ooh, did I?
  • CASTLE: What brings motorcycle boy here?
    Beckett glares at him.
    CASTLE: Doctor motorcycle boy.
  • CASTLE: Maybe Yusef recruited Amir, drove him into the shadowy world of espionage. And once Amir finished his mission, his fate was sealed. Yusef killed him to tie up loose ends, and then took the data drive containing the explosive revelations.
    BECKETT: Which would be what, exactly?
    CASTLE: I'm still thinking on that.
  • MONTGOMERY: Just so I'm clear, are you taking over?
    FALLON: This is your case, I'm just here to lend support any way I can.
    (They find out Amir had been working on the nuclear weapons program in Syria.)
    FALLON: Now I'm taking over.
  • CASTLE: With one foot out the door, it's hard to know where you stand.
  • CASTLE: It's like getting a raise and getting fired at the same time.
    FALLON: Except you don't actually work here.
JUST THE FACTS
Go here to discuss the spec
  • Lanie and Esposito's relationship is apparently public, as Lanie is okay with calling him 'baby' at the crime scene.
  • --
OOPS
  • It's awfully convenient that Beckett is wearing a radiation detector.
  • If they think there's a nuclear bomb in that van, why do they just open the door, especially when they aren't even wearing hazmat suits?
  • Beckett says clearly that her badge number is 0334, but in some other episodes, her badge number is 41319.
