Dustjackets: A Castle Wiki
  • CASTLE: No one is going to be able to tell that we're together by how you are dressed.
    BECKETT: Oh no? I work with a room full of detectives. It's their job.
  • CHIP CHAMBERS: Whoa, talk about New York's finest. Is she really a cop?
    CASTLE: (appalled) Yes, she's really a cop.
  • ESPOSITO: Don't ask.
  • CASTLE: You and I were just friends for four years.
    BECKETT: Yeah, except you were trying to sleep with me the whole time.
  • CASTLE: Excuse me, it was you that was trying to sleep with me.
    BECKETT: Wha-?
    CASTLE: Don't tell me you dressed like that for Esposito.
    ESPOSITO: What's for me?
  • CASTLE: Don't solve the case without me!
  • ESPOSITO: Yo, you took that punch for me. You didn't have to do that.
    RYAN: That's what partners do, right?
  • CASTLE: Maybe people find out and maybe we won’t get to work together and maybe we’ll implode. Or maybe we’ll continue to be amazing. The point is, we don’t have the answers. We just have to live with the questions and … find our way.
  • BECKETT: Because I have a gun and you don't really have a choice.
    CASTLE: Clearly I don't have a choice.
